High pressure firmly in charge – is it?

It seems that this summer the north of Scotland has been finding it very difficult to throw of it’s resident occlusion, trough, or even an occasional warm front like today’s, which has the temerity to inveigle its way into the heart of a large anticyclone with a central pressure of 1031 hPa. It’s’ not the first time a thing like this has happened to an anticyclone and it won’t be the last, but up here north of the Great Glen we’re just about fed up to the back teeth of fronts like this that just want to say hello.
