WSI: July Pattern Expected to Continue Into August

Warm and Dry Conditions Across North, Cooler/Wetter/Windier Across South

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - July 28, 2014) - WSI (Weather Services International) expects widespread above-normal temperatures across Scandinavia, eastern and central mainland Europe and most of the UK for the August-October period, with below-normal temperatures confined to Iberia and western parts of France and the UK.

According to WSI Meteorologist Dr. Todd Crawford: "After an unexpected change in pattern during late June towards more widespread below-normal temperatures across northern and eastern Europe, the pattern has reverted to the expected configuration of higher pressure to the north and lower pressure to the south. We currently expect this pattern of anomalous warmth across Scandinavia and slightly below-normal temperatures across southern Europe to continue into August, but there are some indications that this pattern will break and that cooler, wetter conditions may emerge across northwestern Europe. For now, we feel that this risk is limited but it certainly bears watching. Finally, some of the initial indicators are suggesting that a cold winter may be in store this year due to more frequent atmospheric blocking in the North Atlantic. However, there are still many other important factors that have not yet emerged and, due to these 'known unknowns', confidence in a winter forecast this far out is very low."

In August, WSI forecasts:
Nordic Region* - Warmer than normal
UK* - Warmer than normal
Northern Mainland* - Warmer than normal
Southern Mainland* - Cooler than normal

In September, WSI forecasts:
Nordic Region - Warmer than normal
UK - Warmer than normal, except Ireland
Northern Mainland - Warmer than normal
Southern Mainland - Warmer than normal, except Iberia

In October, WSI forecasts:
Nordic Region - Warmer than normal
UK - Colder than normal
Northern Mainland - Warmer than normal, except France/Benelux
Southern Mainland - Warmer than normal, except Iberia
