EUROPE: Improvement For Flooded Southern UK, Suttle Change Into March




on February 24 | in Rest of Europe, United Kingdom & Ireland | by Mark Vogan | with No Comments


It was yet another weekend with wind and rain a dominant feature across the UK and Ireland. There is good and bad new through the upcoming 7 days. The bad news is that we will continue to see fronts sweep wind and rain across Ireland and the UK and with sunshine returning to many areas that have been swamped the last 2-3 days, these same areas get another soaking over a 3 or 4 hour period tonight and overnight. What’s the good news you ask? Well the worst hit areas of the UK catch a break relatively speaking. By that I mean, we don’t get anywhere near the same rains seen recently but it will rain.

Arctic Air Makes Comeback Following Midwest Storm (Blizzard, severe Wx), Gr Lakes Ice May Top 90% In March




on February 20 | in United States of America | by Mark Vogan | with No Comments


It sure was mild today with 60s making it as far north as Rapid City. We also got 60s into West Virginia and DC but once the air crossed the deeper snowpack from Philly northward, the air cooled, holding highs in the 40s.

Unfortunately, this mild surge is only going to last another day or so before another wave of arctic air dives south. As a matter of fact we have a storm system that will track NNE over the Midwest and it’s this that will trigger a decent snowstorm on it’s backside from the eastern Plains up through Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.


On it’s warm side we have a surge of pretty warm and very moist air and that is expected to trigger severe weather through the Ohio Valley, perhaps points further east. This thing is also likely to bring heavy rain and with all that snow on the ground, expect some flooding.


SPC has slight risk out.

Europe Pattern Next 10 Days: Low Pressure In West, High Pressure East




on February 19 | in Rest of Europe, United Kingdom & Ireland | by Mark Vogan | with No Comments


Granted the pattern is not looking anywhere near as extreme as what we’ve seen in recent weeks, there is unfortunately NO END IN SIGHT to this Atlantic driven pattern over the West of Europe. Head across the mainland however and high pressure is building and locks set to provide a rather benign setup. It’s looking milder than normal throughout Europe in the upcoming 7-10 days.
