UK Weather Review 01/10/2007
By Alex Deakin 

Summary of UK Weather for Monday 1 October 2007.

There was a very distinctive north south split in the weather across
the UK today.

Overnight a frontal system nudged into the south of England introducing some heavy and persistent rainfall at times into the south of England and Wales. This rainfall became more patchy for a time during the morning before pepping up again in the afternoon and finally becoming light and patchy in nature by the end of the evening.

In contrast to this Scotland, Northern Ireland and Northern England experienced a rather chilly, but essentially dry night with some mist and fog patches forming by dawn. These cleared most places by late morning to leave a dry and bright day with some sunny spells. The only exception to this was the Shetland Isles which remained rather cloudy through the day with the odd spot of rainfall.

Daytime temperatures were above average in northern parts that experienced the dry and bright conditions whereas in the south of England and Wales they were below average due to the outbreaks of rain and persistent cloud.

Extremes of Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine for the 24 hours ending 01/10/2007

Highest Day Max : EDINBURGH GOGARBANK : 19.4C
Lowest Day Max : LAKE VYRNWY (Powys): 10.8C
Lowest Night Min : ALTNAHARRA (Highland): -2.4C
Highest Rainfall : LYNEHAM (Wiltshire): 26.2mm

UK Weather Review 02/10/2007
By Dan Corbett 

Scotland and Northern England remained under the influence of a weak
region of high pressure today, with some good clear skies and sunny
periods experienced by many areas, especially in the East. These
areas enjoyed dry conditions for much of the day. The Southern UK
was under the influence of a complex occluded front which curled from
the Thames Estuary up to Wales. This front was mainly associated
with increased amounts of cloud, but did also give some areas the
occasional spell of light rain and drizzle through the day. During
the afternoon the band of thicker cloud associated with this front
began to affect Northern Ireland and the West of Scotland, with some
places experiencing the odd patch of light drizzle. Temperatures
remained near normal in the South and above normal in the North.

Highest Day Max : GLENLIVET (Moray): 19.0C
Lowest Day Max : LAKE VYRNWY (Powys): 11.9C
Lowest Night Min : BRAEMAR (Aberdeenshire) : -1.7C
Highest Rainfall : MANSTON (Kent) : 2.0mm
Highest Sunshine : DYCE (Aberdeenshire): 10.3Hours

UK Weather Review 03/10/2007
By Kirsty McCabe 

Showery activity over the Western Highlands and Islands of Scotland continued through Tuesday night with a new belt of cloud and rain swinging steadily in from the west, associated with a frontal system on a new low pressure system near Scotland.

This belt of cloud and rain arrived into western regions of Northern Ireland during the first part of Tuesday night and carried on to affect western Scotland and Wales during Wednesday morning.

During the early afternoon the belt of rain was affecting the Pennines with the worst of the rain seen on the western slopes. The rain finally cleared to the east of northern England during Wednesday evening and overnight, although central regions of Scotland continued to be affected through the night, particularly areas to the west of high ground.

The trailing edge of the rain band also affected the Midlands and the southwest of England, but was a far more patchy feature due to the building region of high pressure slowly pushing up from the south.

The southeast remained mainly dry through Wednesday except for the odd isolated light shower.

Temperatures remained near normal for the time of year.

Highest max: 19.8C East Malling, Kent
Lowest max: 10.9C Lerwick, Shetland
Lowest min: 2.7C Aboyne, Aberdeenshire
Highest rainfall: 26.8mm Lough Fea, County Tyrone
Sunniest: 4.2hours North Wyke, Devon

UK Weather Review 04/10/2007
By Philip Avery 

High pressure dominated the weather for much of the UK on Thursday. A
weak weather front cleared south and east across Wales and the south
of England early in the day, with some low cloud and patchy drizzly
rain affecting some locations. A few light showers also affected
western areas at first, mainly south-west Scotland and north-west
England. It was a chilly start in some areas with Shawbury achieving
the coldest temperature of around 4C. After any low cloud had
cleared, much of England, Wales and Northern Ireland saw long sunny
spells during the day with temperatures reaching normal or a little
above normal values for early October. Another weak weather front to
the north of the UK brought intermittent light showers and rather
more cloud for northern and eastern Scotland. By the afternoon,
however, much of Scotland, with the exception of the north-east was
enjoying sunny conditions, the best of which were reserved for
western areas. With clear skies across much of the UK, temperatures
dropped sharply through the evening, although a weather front to the
far north-west kept temperatures in north-west Scotland rather
higher.

Highest max 19.5 °C Langdon Bay
Lowest max 11.4 °C Lerwick
Lowest min 4.0 °C Shawbury
Highest rainfall 6.8 mm St Bees Head
Sunniest 10.1 hours Waddington

UK Weather Review 05/10/2007
By Philip Avery 

It was another mainly fine and dry day across much of the UK on
Friday, with wall-to-wall sunshine across England, Wales, southern
and eastern parts of Scotland after early isolated fog patches
cleared during the early part of the morning. It was a rather cool
start to the day in places with one or two locations close to
freezing at first. Further north, across Northern Ireland and the
northwest of Scotland it was rather more cloudy and mild, courtesy of
a slow moving cold front which was positioned to the northwest of the
UK. It was mainly dry here apart from some patchy light rain and
drizzle, chiefly around the coast of the Outer Hebrides. However the
winds strengthened through the day with gale force gusts reported at
Stornoway during the evening. Patchy cloud developed and spread
inland across eastern England through the afternoon, spoiling the
sunshine here, but most places saw temperatures rise to a little
above normal for the time of year.

Highest max 19.3 °C Trawsgoed
Lowest max 11.2 °C Lerwick
Lowest min 0.0 °C Braemar
Highest rainfall 0.8 mm Lerwick
Sunniest 10.5 hours Filton

UK Weather Review 06/10/2007
By Peter Gibbs 

A band of cloud and patchy rain moved slowly south from North
Scotland to affect central parts and parts of Northern Ireland later
while clearer weather followed to the north.

Much of Southern Scotland and Northern England enjoyed sunny skies throughout the day, with the sunshine extending across North Wales.

The rest of England and Wales was dry but generally rather cloudy, especially across East Anglia, the Midlands and Lincolnshire where there was very little brightness. West Wales, Southwest England and English Channel coasts fared a little better with at least some morning sunshine.

Temperatures were mostly a little above average, which made for a pleasant day as winds stayed light.

Highest max: Lee on solent (Hants.) 20C/68F
Lowest max: Kinloss (Moray) 12C/54F
Lowest min: Sennybridge (Powys) 1C/34F

Highest rainfall: South Uist (Outer Hebrides) 9.2mm/0.36"
Sunniest: Valley (Anglesey) 9.5 hours

A weak cold front brought a band of cloud and intermittent light rain slowly southwards across Northern England and Northern Ireland during the day, reaching Lancashire and North Yorkshire by the evening.

Clearer skies followed from the north, with some prolonged sunny spells developing across the central lowlands of Scotland, but Northern Ireland remained mostly cloudy.

Much of the rest of the UK remained generally dry, with blanket cloud lying over the Midlands, much of Wales and the south-east of England. Skies were brighter at times over North Wales, south yorkshire and the Southwest of England.

Temperatures were slightly above average in most areas, but nearer normal or slightly below over Northern Scotland where there was an early frost in places.

Highest max: Killowen (Co. Down) 19C/66F
Lowest max: Lerwick (Shetland) 9C/48F
Lowest min: Braemar (Grampian) -2C/28F
Highest rainfall: Loftus (Cleveland & Redcar) 3.4mm/0.13"
Sunniest: Glasgow 9.6 hours

UK Weather Review 08/10/2007
By John Hammond 

Overnight a weak weather front lay straddled across the country from
Northern Ireland through central southern England to East Anglia.
This introduced some light rain and patchy drizzle at times however
for the majority of places it was a dry night. It was relatively
cloudy and where breaks in the cloud did develop mist and fog patches
formed by dawn. During the day it remained dry and cloudy for most.
There were some sunny spells with the best of the sunshine being
experienced in the southwest of England, Wales, Cheshire as well as
the far northeast of Scotland. By the late afternoon the next
weather system had moved into Northern Ireland resulting in cloudier
conditions with light, patchy rainfall. This rainfall became more
persistent and heavy at times through the evening and spread further
eastwards into western Scotland, northwest England and Wales.
Daytime temperatures were close to average for the time of year and
slightly above average in those areas that experienced the most
sunshine.

The lowest nighttime temperature was 1.4C at Tulloch Bridge.
The lowest daytime temperature was 8.5C at Fair Isle.
The highest daytime temperature was 19.0C at the Isle of Portland.
The highest rainfall was 11.2mm at St Angelo.
The highest sunshine was 7.4 hours at Shawbury.

Overnight a frontal system moved in from the west bringing outbreaks
of rain to Northern Ireland, Western Scotland and northern England.
This rainfall was persistent and heavy at times, particularly across
western upslopes. The weather system moved southeastwards across the
country and by mid-morning there was a great swirl of rain and cloud
stretching from Devon and Cornwall through central southern England
up to the Wash and Lincolnshire and then up through parts of Eastern
Scotland. The heaviest rainfall was experienced in the southeast of
England with reports of some localised flooding. This main band of
rain cleared into the North Sea and English Channel through the
afternoon and as it did so it became rather gusty. By the evening it
was only the far southeast of England that was still rather wet.
Western parts became drier and brighter through the afternoon with a
scattering of showers and some sunny spells.
Daytime temperatures were around average for most although below
average under all the rain and cloud.

The lowest nighttime temperature was 0.0C at Fylingdales.
The highest daytime temperature was 17.4C at Church Fenton.
The lowest daytime temperature was 10.2C at Lerwick.
The highest rainfall was 26.4mm at Port Ellen.
The highest sunshine was 6.2 hours at Tiree.

The region of low pressure which brought rain to many areas yesterday
was this morning moving away across the English Channel. Behind
this, a ridge of high pressure built across the UK during the day.
Much of England and Scotland started the day under cloudy skies,
although some areas of Southern Scotland, Northern England, Wales,
the West Country and East Anglia had some good clear spells.
Conditions for the South and Southeast improved slowly through the
afternoon with some nice breaks in the cloud beginning to appear.
The overnight rain in the Southeast moved away into the English
Channel with the passage of the low and by the early morning all of
the UK was experiencing generally dry conditions. These persisted
through the day, except for the odd isolated light shower in some
places. A band of thickening cloud and light rain started to
approach Northern & Western Scotland, and Northern Ireland during the
evening and overnight, together with strengthening Southwesterly
winds. Temperatures today were near normal for most and slightly
above normal in the North for this time of the year.

Highest max 18.7 °C Milford Haven
Lowest max 11.3 °C Baltasound
Lowest min 2.6 °C Saughall
Highest rainfall 5.6 mm Shoeburyness
Sunniest 9.4 hours Aberporth

UK Weather Review 11/10/2007
By Darren Bett 

The UK was under the influence of high pressure in the South and a
region of low pressure swinging from Iceland to Scandinavia in the
North. The low pressure had an associated frontal system which
crossed the UK during the day. Rain on this front affected Scotland
during the night and early morning period. Central and Southern
England and Wales saw overnight temperatures fall into single
figures, resulting in widespread fog across much of these regions,
some of which became dense for a time. Much of the fog cleared by 11
o'clock to leave a brighter morning in the South, with most of
Scotland, Northern Ireland and the North still under the influence of
thick cloud and strong winds. During the afternoon the thicker cloud
associated with the frontal rain band slowly moved South, weakening
as it went, with most of its associated rain reserved for Scotland
and areas of elevated ground in Northern England and Northern
Ireland. Most of England, Wales and the Channel Islands remained dry
through the day. Temperatures remained near normal for this time of
year.

Extremes of Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine for the 24 hours ending 11/10/2007

Highest Day Max : HERSTMONCEUX : 21.5C
Lowest Day Max : LERWICK : 11.4C
Lowest Night Min : SHAWBURY : 3.7C
Highest Rainfall : LUSA : 18.2mm
Highest Sunshine : SOUTHAMPTON : 8.7Hours

High pressure was firmly in charge of much of the UK during Friday,
meaning the day started dry across much of England, Wales, and
Northern Ireland. However, a weather front was draped across Scotland
during the early hours of the morning, giving some heavy pulses of
rain across the western Highlands first thing. Through the morning
the weather front slowly edged eastwards, clearing all but the
Northern Isles by dawn and leaving a drier and brighter afternoon for
much of Scotland with the best of the sunshine in the east.

Elsewhere, for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, there was a fair
amount of cloud through the day with the odd spot of light rain or
drizzle here and there. Through the afternoon the cloud broke across
eastern parts of England giving some spells of sunshine for
Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.
With light winds it did feel quite pleasant in the sunshine with
temperatures a little above average across much of the UK.

Highest Day Max : LECONFIELD (East Riding): 20.4C
Lowest Day Max : LERWICK (Shetland): 10.5C
Lowest Night Min : KIRKWALL (Orkney): 6.8C
Highest Rainfall : STORNOWAY (Western Isles): 4.6mm
Highest Sunshine : LEUCHARS (Fife): 6.3Hours
