(Snow Watch) Jan 16th   Chances of Snow Within the Next 14 Days 35%

UPCOMING WEATHER INFO-: Another week to keep an eye on, as model runs keep changing the intensity of the Low pressure systems and tracking, this of course will make timings of the approaching rain/snow bearing fronts moving in to our air space different. So it’s keep up to date daily on my daily updates above or local radio/tv broadcasts!!! As I have mentioned before this is only a guide (a pretty good one at that!!!) Temperatures will be on the up/down this week with plenty of rain especially as we head towards next weekend, just possible snow will be involved in some of the forecasts, especially for the hillier parts!!! Ok lets put this in to a daily detail below.

Next Weeks Forecast Starting Sunday Jan 17th

Confidence 55%. Another low confidence in this forecast due to what I had mentioned in the news and upcoming weather sections, but I done well in last weeks with the same rating! Ok lets have a quick look ahead, Err Saturday is looking interesting, as well as the rest of the week with some impressive Lows!! We will see what mother nature decides. Whatever the weather, you have a good week.

News:-  Looking at the latest Model runs! and it’s not set in stone? The PV is practically over head, or at least part of it, have not known this before, so it is well displaced from the North Pole. As for the model runs they give an Atlantic flow, as well as the AZ high keeping the SW of the UK on the mild side. But I believe the model runs are not coping with this (SSW). As mentioned last week, model outputs could change massively on every 6 hour run, as they have been doing over this last week. So on the current runs temperatures will be on the up and down, snow looks to be confined to the moors if any cold air intrusions move over our air space? As for the rest of the UK, especially towards the E/NE ice and snow looks to be on the cards!!! Oh yes just have to mention that There is no signs of A BEAST FROM THE EAST at this time, it’s more of a BEAST FROM THE WEST for us in the SW with the possibility of plenty of rain/snow. I will give a rough idea on next weeks model outputs on the upcoming forecast section.

RAINFALL amounts recorded in different areas can be vastly different, as the case in showers, so the totals I show, are recorded in my location, this will give a rough idea for your area in the Bay!!!
