  • Planning for the weekend and hoping for the best?

    Luckily, the weekend will be pretty much dry!

    We’ll have settled weather with clouds and sunny spells across the North East. Further South and East, these spells will be between periods of light rain and drizzle.

    There’s expected to be light winds and average temperature, though the South may feel a little colder.

  • Saturday to Monday weather forecast

    Sunniest in the west on Saturday, particularly N.Ireland and Scotland; cloudier elsewhere with showers.

    On Sunday and Monday, dry with a few bright spells for most. Turning cooler with nighttime-frosts.

  • There is a ‘chance of longer periods of snow’

    Brian Gaze, director and forecaster for The Weather Outlook told The Sun: “Towards the end of this week colder air from the east is expected to start moving across the UK as high pressure builds to the northeast.

    “At the moment there is uncertainty about how long it will hang around for and how much temperatures will fall.

    “The coldest conditions could well be in the south and east of the UK and that is where wintry showers would be most likely.

    “However, as milder air tries to return from the southwest next week there is a chance of longer periods of snow for a time close to the boundary between the cold continental and milder Atlantic air masses.”

  • Don’t put away your coats away just yet

    Brian Gaze, director and forecaster for The Weather Outlook told The Sun: “Towards the end of this week colder air from the east is expected to start moving across the UK as high pressure builds to the northeast.

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Things can only get wetter if the latest odds are anything to go by, and with even more heavy rain soon set to batter Britain, odds on this going down as a record-breaking month on the weather front are shortening by the day.”

  • Clear spells continuing into the evening

    The Met Office said: “After some sunshine in the west this afternoon, clear spells continuing as we move into #Friday evening.

    “Any showers becoming isolated and turning cold under the clear skies.

    “The coldest conditions could well be in the south and east of the UK and that is where wintry showers would be most likely.

    “However, as milder air tries to return from the southwest next week there is a chance of longer periods of snow for a time close to the boundary between the cold continental and milder Atlantic air masses.”

  • Mapped: Snow to creep across the UK

    Temperatures will plunge as low as -4C on March 10.

    And the chilly snap will arrive as Storm Gladys brings frost and a “wintry blast” – just as the UK moves into spring.

  • Brits to be hit by Storm Gladys chaos in WEEKS

    British Weather Services’ senior meteorologist Jim Dale warned March can bring “some of the snowiest” conditions.

    Jim said: “Very often, March can deliver big winds and it can deliver short-lived snow events.”

    Weather forecaster WXCharts forecaset up to 5cm of snow in Manchester by Friday while Edinburgh and Newcastle will see 3cm of snow.

    Scotland can expected around 1cm of snow per hour a day while cold wind will plunge most of the UK to feel sub-zero.

  • The world is still heating up despite our best efforts

    A report published yesterday by the IPCC announced impacts of climate change on all parts of our society.

    Widespread impacts of human-induced climate change can be seen all over the world.

    Professor Richard Betts said, “Many future climate-related risks are more severe than previous IPCC assessments, increasing the urgency of cutting greenhouse gas emissions to limit future warming to as low as possible.”

    It was thought that severe impacts will happen at a higher temperature, but it is now thought they could take place sooner (at lower temperatures).

    In order to prevent the worst of global warming caused by climate change, the report made clear action needs to be taken soon (within the decade).
