High pressure to rule the remainder of March

Written by on March 18, 2019 in Rest of Europe, United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

After an active spell of weather with spells of high wind, flooding rain, hail, sleet and snow, high pressure is building and shall anchor itself over the UK and much of Western Europe for the remainder of March and likely into the first week of April.

Give or take a weakening Atlantic front and fronts running the northern flank of the high across Scotland, the outlook is much drier, brighter and less windy. In the sun and light to moderate southwest winds, temps will respond nicely during the day. Though we’re likely to see mist, fog and frost overnight where skies are clear and winds light.

The below CFSv2 weekly 500mb height anomaly shows the persistent ridging lasting through the rest of the month.
