CFS sees drier final week of July
High pressure building
By Simon Keeling in Wombourne, Staffs 16:30hrs 12/7/12
Temperature: 16.0C Weather: Clouding over
Interesting to see this chart from the CFS model.
It's a hemispheric chart centred on the north pole, so you do have to turn your head 180 degrees to view it!
The chart shows 500mb height anomalies, so where the colours are blue and green heights are below normal (i.e. wet, low pressure) where they are orange and red the heights are above normal (dry and warm, high pressure).
See how the model predicts above normal heights centred over Ireland through the 26th-1st, hinting at heigher pressure and drier weather and backing up our forecast of a spell of more summer like weather (although not too hot).
Conditions are back to normal in the following week and so our taste of summer may not be long lived, but at least it is better than what we have right now!
