Channel 4 News’ Weather presenter Liam Dutton blogs on the highs and lows of the weather.
As the curtain falls on the disappointing show that was August, today marks the beginning of meteorological autumn - classed as the months of September, October and November.
August was the rogue month of summer, going against the grain of the warmth and sunshine that June and July delivered.
It was provisionally the coolest August the UK has seen for 23 years, with mean temperatures (an average of day and night temperatures) 1.1C below normal. (more…)
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.
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.
