Channel 4 News’ Weather presenter Liam Dutton blogs on the highs and lows of the weather.
As August draws to a close, so does meteorological summer (June, July and August), which means that provisional statistics are now available for how summer shaped up this year.
Summer 2014 will no doubt be remembered for the great weather that persisted through much of June and July, thanks to high pressure dominating.
This was due to the jet stream spending much of the time to the north of the UK, steering low pressure, wind and rain towards Iceland and northern Scandinavia, allowing us to bask in warmth and sunshine. (more…)
During August, there have been some particularly good images of our planet taken by Nasa satellites from space.
Following a wet and cool bank holiday Monday, my meteorological charts are showing hints that summer will bounce back next week.
As the statistical peak of the Atlantic hurricane season approaches in the coming weeks, the notable lack of storm activity in the Atlantic ocean continues.
The final bank holiday of the year is approaching and it’s likely to be a busy one with many schools still in the midst of the summer holidays. But what will the weather deliver us?
Following a summer that has been dominated by sunshine and warmth, this week will see the arrival of cooler air and some unseasonably chilly nights for August.
Today, the Met Office released some provisional figures showing that the UK has had almost all of its average August rainfall in the first 13 days of the month.
Following a good summer so far, the weather looks to have turned a corner, with something a lot more changeable from this point onwards.
From menacing storm clouds to colourful sunsets, the weather really has put on a fantastic display in recent days, so I thought I’d pull together a selection of images for you to see.
