Stuck in a rut but drier, brighter times ahead? SE Eng drops from 29C to 15C.

Quite the contrast within 24 hours for Southeast England. The difference between being ahead the front and under the front at this time of year. All just part of this atmospheric rut we’re in.

The Southeast went from hot, humid continental to fresh maritime thanks to the passage of a cold front.

So as we enter the 2nd half of the working week and tomorrow being the last day of meteorological summer, have we any prolonged dry weather on the horizon? September can indeed be one of our better months. I’m off to Northern Ireland a week from tomorrow for a few days holiday with the family and 3 years ago, we had some glorious late summer-like weather in NI.

Certainly we have more systems coming in off the Atlantic like we’ve had pretty much all summer long. However, there appears to be a shift in model solution which sees high pressure building in the large scale with resistance to incoming LP.

The SE rains of today shall be gone by the weekend.

I showed in this morning’s video the slowdown of the next Atlantic front providing a decent Saturday but wet Sunday.

Into Monday and that front essentially gets absorbed with influence of a strengthening westward retrograding Scandinavia high. The Atlantic throws another low in mid next week but looks like the Scandinavia high wins out forcing LP south nearer France and Spain.
