Circulation in June 2019

The heatwave over parts of France may have caught all the headlines but the centre of the warmth in June lay much further east in Poland and Ukraine.

A cold day in the northeast

After such a lovely warm and sunny week last week, it’s back to temperatures more similar to those at the start of spring rather than those of mid May in northeast Scotland. The colder than average temperatures are well illustrated in the 12 UTC temperature anomaly chart with most places in the northeast having negative anomalies of -1 to -3°C. Eastern England on the other hand are doing very well with a range of positive anomalies between +2 and +5°C.
