No respite in site to this wet and windy spell

There seems to be no end to this mobile spell of weather that’s brought rain and wind to the IONA during the last couple of months. The latest run of the ECMWF model if anything is more cyclonic in nature, with the flow across IONA backing more into the S’SW rather than the W’SW where has it has been for so long. That’s thanks in part to a belt of high pressure aligned north south at 20° east in eastern Europe, and if that persists and forms a block then January could end up being a very mild and stormy affair indeed, especially in western parts.
