Ssshhhh, don't say it too loud...
...but that's high pressure!

By Simon Keeling in Wombourne 12:10hrs  07/06/12
Temperature: 14.4C    Weather: Rain


It's only been a few days since the hot and fine weather enjoyed by most of the UK and Ireland, but doesn't it seem a long time?

Well, don't say it too loudly but the GFS Ensemblem and the operational are both building a ridge of high pressure from around the 19th.

The chart below shows the ridge well established, and that would bring some fine and warm weather, although not hot.

There has been some consistency over various model runs about this and so confidence is slowly building (although a similar thing happened 10-days ago with the high never appearing this week!).

It could be rough next week though with low pressure back in control for a while. So, there's a bit of fun to get through before the drier weather returns.

Everything is crossed here!
