Haven’t we been lucky with the weather over the past few weeks? Yes, I know not everywhere has enjoyed prolonged periods of settled weather, but for most of us Autumn 2009 has so far proved a cracker. But will the weekend offer a chance to get out and about? Read on!
For the hundreds of you who have asked, the latest news on the Weather Whys? DVD is that I hope to have it released and available for you to buy in the next couple of weeks (no prizes for guessing what Santa will be bringing you this Christmas!). I’m really pleased with how the videos look, and you can see samples from Weather Whys? By going to http://www.weatherweb.net/wxwebtv.htm

WEEKEND WEATHER FORECAST
Issued: 1700 Thursday 15th October 2009
High pressure is expected to be centred over the Irish Sea on Saturday and will remain across the country throughout the day. A cold front moves south through the North Sea and into the Low Countries.
A fine day for most of the country, although there will be some morning mist and fog patches, especially across England, Wales and southern Scotland. We’re now at the time of year where these can last well into the morning, and it may be a few are still hanging around until 10am. They should burn away though and then for most of the country it will be a fair day with sunshine and only small amounts of cloud.
A couple of exceptions will be East Anglia where cloud off the cold front may well produced some spots of rain, and these could trouble the east of Kent too. Also, thicker cloud pushing into northwestern Scotland and western Ireland later may bring a few spots of rain.
Winds are variable around the high, generally a N’ly 10-15kt (F4-F5) down the eastern coasts of England, becoming S-SW 12-15kt (F4-F5) over western Scotland and western Ireland later.
Watch out for the threat of an increased NE’ly in the English Channel too, perhaps to 17kt (F5) on the southern edge of the anticyclone.http://www.weatherweb.net/ukfronts3.htm
High pressure remains close by through today and dominates the weather across southern England. A cold front passing through Scotland and Ireland in the morning, reaching northern England and Wales in the afternoon.
There could be some morning mist and fog patches once again through central and southern England, but these should be clearing away to leave most of the south of the country with a fair day once again, with sunny spells and dry conditions.
A fair start for northern England and Wales too, but here the cloud is going to be increasing and there will be outbreaks of rain moving in, associated with the cold front for the afternoon. Some of the rain moderate over the hills with a threat of hill fog.
Following behind the cold front will be a mix of sunny spells and showers. The showers tending to be confined to the coasts and hills in the west, and a few of them could be on the heavy side. For many in Scotland and Ireland the afternoon will be a fine one though and generally dry, especially where you can get shelter from the winds.
Generally a SW 8-10kt (F3-F4) in the south, becmg 12-16kt (F4-F5) ahead of the cold front, then NW 12-18kt (F4-F6) behind it.http://www.weatherweb.net/ukfronts4.htm
