View Full Version : Weekend Weather Forecast 9/12/09

9th December 2009, 10:10 PM
Hello again,

Only two weeks to go now until Christmas, and I thought Iíd get this forecast to you early as itís a busy few days ahead.

Lots of orders coming in for books and DVDís, and donít forget that if you would like yours by Christmas the last recommended ordering day is 20th December.

There may be a battle through the snow at some time next week as well, things look much colder, and yes there could be some white stuff in the air. Will it last for Christmas? Donít build your hopes up just yet.

Oh yes, Sailing Weather School Part 1 is almost full, so if you are planning on coming along, best to get your booking in as soon as possible. I have two places left on Part 1 (Sat 30th Jan). You can book online at http://www.weatherschool.co.uk

Onto the weekend forecast, and if you know anyone whoíd like to receive this email each week just tell them to send a request to join to

Have a good one,

High pressure is going to be centred off eastern Scotland at midday on Saturday, with no frontal systems affecting the British Isles and Ireland.
Fog is likely to be a problem through Scotland and northern England, some of this reluctant to clear all day. Where it does the sun will poke through and it should be dry. Over the rest of England and Wales it should be a largely dry day. There will be some low cloud around, and it could be rather misty too. A few showers reacing the southeast later.
Winds will be mainly NE 8-12kt (F3-F4) over the southern half of England and Wales, becoming E-SE 12kt (F4) for Ireland and western Wales. Mainly E-SE 1-5kt (F1-F2) for Scotland.


High pressure remains across the north on Sunday, as a more brisk northeast wind develops to the south. This is going to be pushing much colder air westwards and brings with it the increasing threat of low cloud and drizzle.
Indications are that it will be a bitterly cold day with some outbreaks of drizzle over much of England and eastern Wales. Most of the drizzle to the east, this turning sleety through the day. Visibility starting to deteriorate.
In the west there is the likelihood that the cloud will be more broken with better visibility and good sunny spells, especially through western Wales and western Scotland.
High pressure continues to bring fog, some of it dense across parts of central and eastern Scotland.
Winds will be mainly NE 12-14kt (F3-F4) for England and Wales, E-SE 8-10kt (F3) for Ireland and a variable 1-4kt (F1-F2) for most of Scotland.
