The front that refused to die

The warm cold frontal system that become quasi-stationary as it moved into western districts of the UK yesterday has proved to be a real thorn in the side and dent the optimism of weathercasters this week. Despite assurances that it would fizzle out as it came up against a ‘mountain of high pressure’ there’s still some light rain falling from it across Wales and the southwset Midlands this morning. Further north we have our own problems – unfortunately the Moray Firth filled up with haar again overnight after taking till mid afternoon on Friday to clear it. Hopefully the models are right and skies will become clearer in the next 24 hours and we will get a sunny Sunday.

  1. Yep, slight rain on and off here in South Shropshire – enough to give a tip of the buckets. I’m getting my gardening in today before it gets too warm tomorrow!

      1. Didn’t it come in from the SW in association with the “nuisance front”? Then influenced by adiabatic compression (descent) as pressure rose, coupled with strong heating?

        1. Yes it did. I like to think the reason for it dying out in simpler terms though, and coming up against a mountain of high pressure like TS described it was pretty good.

  2. where did that warm air originate from?
    F%&*$%g Politicians !

    1. Don’t get me going about politicians. Until we emigrated three years ago I wasn’t particularly interested in politics – the SNP soon sorted me out in that regard.
