Outlook for the rest of May

An unusually deep area of low pressure for late May will bring widespread North-easterly gales to much of our region in the next 24 hours.

Gusts of around 60mph are possible in coastal areas by the end of the night and into Friday morning; with gusts around 50mph elsewhere.

A Met Office yellow warning is in place.

Friday looks very inclement. Cold, windy and showery conditions will slowly improve as the area of low pressure moves away southwards.

The good news is that the weekend is looking much better.

A ridge of high pressure means that much of Saturday and Sunday will be dry with sunny spells.

With much lighter winds, it will feel warmer too, with temperature recovering to near normal levels for this time of the year.

And although next week will be unsettled and dominated by low pressure, if timings of the next rain bearing weather front remain the same, then much of bank holiday Monday will be dry, too.

In what’s been the coldest spring since 1979, a fine spring bank holiday weekend will be welcome news to the struggling tourist industry.

Don’t forget this weekend’s weather show on BBC local radio across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, featuring amongst other things the long hot summer of 1976, and the severe winter of 1963.

And the following weekend, I cover the issue of climate change.

    "....they seem to prefer the UK data series..."

    Seem to be weaning our MSM off CET, which might happen locally (UK), but it will not happen internationally. Due to its longevity CET is continually referenced in scientific research papers originating from all parts of the world. It is very doubtful at this stage in the development of climate science.that this will change.

    "Looks similar to HadSST2..."

    Thanks QV, yes very similar and both a touch higher than thought re Reynolds and UAH SSTs. Interest in CRUTEM when it arrives.

    This spring's CET is looking like it might be lower than 1962 and the lowest since 1891, similar to the spring's of 1816, 1713, 1692 and 1675.
    Colder than most springs in the 17th century.
    This will probably not be mentioned by the MO, since they seem to prefer the UK data series which starts in 1910.

    greensand,

    April HadSST3 now published at 0.365c, up from 0.287c.
    Looks similar to HadSST2, without doing any actual calcs.
    No Crutem3/4 yet, although that doesn't necessarily rule out HadCRUT3/4.

    Well I for one am very much looking forward to Paul Hudson covering the issue of climate change. A simple one liner should sort it Paul. 'The climate has always changed.'

    "Is that what this is about? you think it's a conspiracy?"

    No! It is about facts and data and having a sense of humour!

    "Someone probably has to check the results by eye before they are put up,..."

    I am sure you are right, and therefore hence the puzzle regarding the CRUTEM and HadCRUT 4.2.0.0. revisions and the subsequent Jan 13 "anomalies".
