August 26, 2020
Carol Kirkwood forecast continued strong winds and heavy showers as Storm Francis passes over the United Kingdom. The BBC meteorologist added that there will be lots of cloud across northern England and Scotland.
Ms Kirkwood said: “We have got this ridge of high pressure coming in, it is not going to be with us very long.
“Gusty winds to start the day, we also have some rain but most of that will clear.
“There is quite a bit of cloud across the northern half of England and Scotland.
“Through the afternoon there will be one or two showers.

“We are looking at temperatures between 13 to 23 degrees, so it is going to feel much better than it did yesterday.”
She continued: “As we head on through the evening and overnight we are still going to have some showers around.
“There will be some clear skies as well with a bit of cloud in the north of the country.
“There will also be more showers coming in from the west.
“It will be a cooler night in northern areas compared to southern areas.”
The Met Office has issued warnings of heavy rain or strong winds, covering Northern Ireland, southern Scotland, northern England and parts of North Wales.
The BBC long-range forecast says the high pressure from the European Island will bring dry and bright weather, with England and Wales experiencing the best of the conditions.

The forecasters outlook from September 7, to September 20 says: “Changeable weather conditions appear likely through the middle part of September.
“There are signs of a temporary change to drier and warmer weather just before mid-month, this is because high pressure may expand northwards from the Azores for a time.
“England and Wales are likely to see the lengthiest of any drier, calmer and warmer periods of weather.
“However, Scotland and Northern Ireland are favoured to become less wet and less windy for a time with nearer-average rainfall.”
