Firstly, I’d like to apologise for the lack of updates in the last couple of weeks. I’ve had limited internet access so I haven’t been able to get on and update the blog, that’s now sorted out. I hope you all have a fantastic New Year. After a brief cold spell at the start of the month where some areas did indeed see further snowfall, we’re now under more Atlantic driven weather and many areas have seen some wet and windy weather.
I mentioned in my winter forecast that as we move through January we’re likely to see increasingly mild and unsettled weather pushing across the United Kingdom, typical of a La Nina winter and that does seem to be the most likely scenario. I’ve just had a look at the computer models and almost all of them are suggesting that we’re going to see High Pressure to the South of the United Kingdom which will allow Low Pressure systems to push across the Atlantic and into the UK, bringing further spells of wet and windy weather with temperatures being generally around or slightly above average for the foreseeable future.
I am keeping an eye on a potential cold spell towards the end of the month, however I don’t think it’ll be nearly as severe, or as long as the December cold spell. So the outlook then is for things to remain generally mild with wet and windy weather pushing through at times.
