After some of the miserable, wet and stormy conditions we’ve been facing in recent times, the July heatwave suddenly feels like a distant memory and it’s almost hard to believe there was even a heat wave.

But now forecasters are exciting the British once again as a new heat wave looms on the horizon, with temperatures above 25 degrees likely to hit our region in the weeks to come.

With the suggestions of an African plume being the reasoning behind the predicted heat wave, there are many questions about what an African plume is and how it might bring back the sunny weather that we have been missing lately.

The tropical continental air masses that dictate our time are causing the dramatic change in conditions, with the air mass coming from the regions of North Africa and the Sahara, which has earned it the name ” African panache ”.

This would bring much warmer and drier conditions which would run from the south and gradually move towards Staffordshire once the air reached the mainland.

Other elements that accompany an African plume include above average temperatures, thunderstorms and those dreaded warmer nights.

So don’t get the fans excited just yet, because we might not be quite done with them for the summer.

Brian Gaze, Weather Outlook forecaster, explained what we can expect from the conditions in the coming days.

“There are tentative signs of improvement in the middle of the third of August.

“High pressure may build up towards the UK from the Azores, but there is a lot of uncertainty about that.

“If that happens, temperatures in the southern and central regions could climb to the upper 20C and in the north the middle 20C.”

He added: “In the first half of August, mixed with showers or longer periods of rain but also hot and thin periods.

“The driest weather is likely to be in the south and east, but an increased risk of heavy showers or thunderstorms means local variations could be significant.

“Temperatures are expected to be above average when aggregated over the entire period. During the second half, the chances of stable and very hot periods increase.

“Rain showers are still likely, especially in the north and west.”

The BBC’s long-term forecast currently calls for volatile weather for the next few weeks, but points to an improvement in the weather later in the month.

“We expect low pressure to be charging across northern Europe over the next few weeks, keeping UK weather unstable, wetter and cooler than normal for the end of summer.

“However, later in August there are encouraging signs for more influencing high pressure, at least for a few weeks, bringing drier and warmer weather.

“It comes with a slight chance of a heat wave at the end of the summer, but at the moment it’s only a risk.”

At 73, Lin Hiley, retired from Exmouth, is far from taking it easy.
Not satisfied with having hiked the longest zip line in Europe and performing a tandem parachute jump, all in the name of charity, she is now committed to her most daring mission to date … a walk winged!
The sponsored Daredevil Stunt takes place at Dunkeswell Airport on July 26 to raise much-needed funds for Hospiscare.
And Lin appeals for donations to help him find the courage.
The former occupational therapist said she decided to volunteer for the wing walk after her husband Paul was unable to continue her volunteer work with Hospiscare due to the pandemic.
Paul’s first wife, Sue, who was also a friend of Lin’s, was taken into the care of the Exeter-based charity before her death in 1996.
Lin said, “I’m not sure what to expect, but I’m told there will be ‘swoops and dives’!
“I had to get a certificate from my doctor to say I was in good shape and in fairly good health, but other than that it will only be the same day!” “
Lin and Paul are no strangers to adventure. In 2007, they crossed the Atlantic on a 35-foot yacht and spent three years exploring the Caribbean before returning from Antigua via the Azores.
Paul is also a professional musician who has provided backing music to numerous artists including Cliff Richard, performed on BBC Proms and also appears on numerous film scores including Born Free and Ryan’s Daughter.
The percussionist also provided some of the spooky moments on the soundtracks for several Hammer House Of Horror movies.
Lin, who lives in Windsor Square, Exmouth, said she was determined to raise as much money as possible for Hospiscare.
“They are such wonderful people and do an amazing job,” she added.
“My only real worry is that I’m suffering from motion sickness, so I hope that won’t be a problem. When we crossed the Atlantic I had to take prescription motion sickness medication every eight hours for three weeks!
Lin hopes to raise £ 1,000 for Hospiscare. To make a donation, go to

Elizabeth Gale Cottle (“Betty”) passed away peacefully at her home in West Tisbury in the early morning hours of Sunday, June 13, 2021. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Ed Cottle. They were married for 67 years.

Betty was born in Oak Bluffs on October 24, 1929, daughter of Allen and Mary Gale. She grew up in Tisbury and spent her adult life in West Tisbury. Betty was an island girl, through and through. Betty often said that she had the best childhood. She loved to tell stories of roaming West Chop, picking flowers before the summer people arrived. Walk to Bayside and jump off the pier. Find your friends under the lampposts to play or go to the movies. She told how the streets would be closed so that the children could go sledding.

Betty attended Tisbury School from Grades 1 to 12. She really liked school; she was very sociable, an excellent student and quite athletic. She stayed close to many of her classmates (Shirley, Alden, Herb, Joann and Tina, to name a few). She also organized a few class meetings. After high school Betty was very proud to attend Mount Ida Junior College, then with Shirley she worked and rented a place in Hyannis. Soon after, the island started calling her home.

Once back on the island, she worked for the telephone company and fell in love with a boy from the top of the island named Ed Cottle. They were married on September 15, 1951. In most families in the 1950s and 1960s, it was common for mothers to focus on raising children and maintaining the house, while fathers went to work. Mom usually started the day by calling the stairs for us kids: “It’s time to get up and shine!” “
Betty didn’t run her house with a lot of rules and curfews (although she had a strict no-swear policy, and she had a bell that could be heard for miles – when it rang we knew all that it was time to come home). Instead of rules, I believe she tried to instill in us life lessons, such as “Do to others what you would like us to do”, “Kindness counts”, “Do your best” and ” If you don’t ”I have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

While Betty was raising five children and helping Ed with the lumber yard, she was also very active in the community. She was part of the school committee, she helped organize and advertise at local horse shows, she was a member of the hospital board, she counted the votes at the West Tisbury polling stations. Betty belonged to the MV Garden Club, the Antiques Club, and a bridge club. She also had many personal interests; she was accomplished at embroidery and knitting, loved to read, grow beautiful flowers, vacations, bird watching, home decorating. She has done extensive research on her family’s genealogy. She loved to play tennis, golf, cards and dominoes, or just drive along the beach to watch the water and smell the salty air.

Betty often spoke of her desire to travel, and once the children were grown up, she was able to make her dream come true. She enjoyed a trip across the country with Ed and numerous trips to Boothbay, Maine and North Conway, NH; she loved her winter trips to Florida. She has traveled extensively through Europe, Scotland, Holland, Italy and Wales. She visited the Azores, the Alazka and Canada. After returning home, she had her photos developed, collected ticket stubs and travel brochures, and created a scrapbook of each trip.

Whichever way you knew her, Mom, Girlfriend, Sister, Mrs Cottle, Aunt, Betty, Great Grandma, Great Aunt, Elizabeth, Bet – she will be remembered for her wonderful smile, his positive attitude and his ability to always see the good in everything. She also had the special gift of making everyone around her feel wanted, loved and important.
She will be forever missed by her children: Jill Walpole, her husband Randy and their daughter Kate; Ed Cottle, his wife Inez and the children of Ed Sarah, Jen, Rachel and Ed III; Janet, her husband Glenn and their children Keith, Jon and Elizabeth; Amy, her husband Gary and their children Dan, Kevin and Mary; Alan and his wife Deb. She is also survived by her brother Robert and his wife Rita; and by many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins ​​and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Ed; his parents, Allen and Mary; and his brother Richard.

As summer vacation begins and most covid restrictions end in England, many will be looking for a trip out of the country.

However, there are a host of travel restrictions designed to restrict the spread of covid.

The government has divided the nations into three lists – green, orange and red.

TOP STORY: Tokyo 2020 Olympics: All Staffordshire Athletes Competing in Games

If you are returning from a country on the red list, then you must do a covid test before leaving and then isolate yourself for 10 days in a hotel.

This applies to both people who are fully vaccinated and people who have not received both doses of the vaccine.

If you are returning from an Amber List country, if you have received both doses of the vaccine, you must be tested before traveling and show proof of your vaccination.

If you are not fully vaccinated then you should quarantine yourself at home or where you are staying for 10 days after your departure. This also applies to anyone returning from France.

Those returning to the UK from a Green List country do not have to self-quarantine, but must take a covid test and pay for another test to be performed the day after their return, as well as complete a passenger tracking form.

Here is a list of all the countries on the three lists, as of this afternoon, July 20, and information as to whether they are likely to move to another list in the near future.

The list comes from the government, but anyone planning to travel to an unlisted country should check with the Foreign Office before booking their trip.

Ballywatticock’s moment in the sun could only last a few days with a possibility that Northern Ireland’s temperature record could be broken again later this week.

Weather experts are forecasting temperatures in the low 30s for Wednesday and Thursday as the heatwave continues through the weekend.

The town near Newtownards recorded a high of 31.2C on Saturday – if verified, it will be the hottest on record in Northern Ireland.

The Met Office still treats the matter with caution given that the area was nearly three degrees higher than the weather stations surrounding it.

It is understood that they will send an expert to Northern Ireland later this week to investigate the Co Down weather station after providing the highest temperature in the whole of the UK on Saturday.

But with the high pressure causing high temperatures from the Azores set to stay put for the next few days, the hot sun wave shows no sign of going anywhere until early next week at the earliest.

In the BBC NI Weather Center, forecaster Barra Best said he would keep a close watch on thermometers over the next few days.

“Wednesday and Thursday are the days to watch if we are talking about records,” he said.

“We expect it to be around the 30 degree mark and that means in isolated areas there is a chance that the record will be broken again.”

Yesterday an extreme heat warning for parts of the UK was first issued by the Met Office.

The orange warning covers much of Wales, all of South West England and parts of southern and central England, and will be in place until Thursday evening.

Barra added: “We hear that the Met Office is issuing a weather warning for hot temperatures in Britain and that Met Eireann is considering something similar for Ireland.

“We are trapped by the high pressure and there is no wind to push it forward. But this has its drawbacks. Nighttime temperatures do not drop below 15 or 16 degrees and the next day begins to heat up. During the day this temperature rises again and this creates uncomfortable nights, with little breeze to cool things down.

“Anyone with breathing difficulties may find it difficult. And if you’re like me with typical Irish skin, it’s a factor of 50, and put on a hat or stay under a parasol. Some of us have to be a little more careful than others.

The surge in ice cream sales matches soaring temperatures, with salons reporting record sales and staff working around the clock to meet demand.

Ross Harkin of Rinkha in Islandmagee, County Antrim is one of those who put in the long hours to make sure the freezers stay stocked and yesterday afternoon he had just finished a new batch of ice cream with cherries and chocolate and started the new favorite, the strawberry cheesecake.

“We went all out. I don’t remember seeing anything like the number of people on the beaches at Brown’s Bay and Portmuck, ”he said.

“The roads to Portmuck had to be closed on weekends due to the number of people trying to get there for the day.

“Considering the year and a half we’ve had, it’s wonderful to see.

“The ice cream business always picks up when the sun is shining, and last week is just what we needed.

“I’m here until after midnight most nights to refresh everything. We are not yet sold out and I am determined not to.

“I know it’s gonna be a long week, with the sun set to last until next weekend, but from a business standpoint and from a fun standpoint, I don’t remember ever having anything seen from such. “

The company is now in its fourth generation and this year marks the 100th anniversary of its opening. And with temperatures matching those of popular hot spots like Faro and Cannes, Ross said the release of the lockdown associated with the good weather has resulted in a real surge in customer numbers.

“There are a lot of people who won’t be able to travel overseas this year due to travel restrictions and many don’t want to take the risk. Last week was perfect for them and for us.

“We’re going to stick with it for the rest of the week. We will be trying out different flavors to give it a little variety. Our traditional family vanilla recipe is still the favorite, but there have been a few more exotic flavors, like peaches and cream, mixed in there. There was a real beach toy spin-off for us too. I’m sure it’s the same in other seaside towns.

It’s absolutely stuffy today, and it’s important to make sure your furry friends stay as cool as you do in the heat. Well, a dog owner shared a handy tip that will help you decide if it’s too hot to walk your dog:

Sian Coffey posted a video on his TikTok account urging people to be extra careful during hot periods as it could be incredibly dangerous to their pets.

In the video, which was mistaken for an interactive doorbell, a man can be seen walking his dog along the sidewalk.

The dog then quickly crosses the road, heading to a shady corner under a tree.

The caption for Sian reads: “If you are one of the many idiots who walk your dog during a heat wave, you shouldn’t own a dog.

“Watch the dog run into the shadows as the ground boils.

“If you can’t keep the back of your hand on the ground for five seconds, it’s too hot.”

Since the video was posted, it has been viewed more than 444,000 times, with other pet owners crowding in the comments to show their support.

Agreeing with Sian, one user said, “Every dog ​​owner should know this. If you don’t agree with that, you’re the problem.”

Another added: “I work in a pub and the number of people taking their dogs out in hot weather annoys me so much.

“They often don’t bring water either. Luckily we do.”

“A dog will not die if it has not been walked for a day, it will die if it has been walked in this heat,” commented a third.

While another added: “It was way too hot for the dogs to be outside today, I didn’t take mine out for walks at all.”

Met Office operational meteorologist Andy Page said: “The extension of the Azores high is the main reason for the UK’s current weather pattern, which will see much of the UK reaching heatwave thresholds over the weekend and early next week.

“High temperatures will remain within the forecast until next week, but there is a risk of isolated heavy downpours across southern UK on Monday and Tuesday, although this should be broadly acceptable in most areas.”

But with temperatures set to skyrocket, Public Health England has also issued a heat health alert that is expected to last until Tuesday morning (July 20).

Scientific and Technical Manager Dr Owen Landeg said: “Most heat control advice is common sense and for many people, periods of warmer weather are something they really enjoy.

“However, for some people, such as the elderly, those with underlying health conditions and young children, the summer heat can pose real health risks. That is why we urge everyone to keep an eye out for those you know who might be at risk.

“If you can, ask if your friends, family or neighbors need help. Also take water with you when you travel and keep up to date with the weather forecast.

“It’s also worth remembering the practical steps for keeping homes cool during the day, as this can help sleep at night and give the body time to recover from heat.”

LI set humidity record in June, and July is shaping up to be even worse, forecasters say https://turismo-stp.org/li-set-humidity-record-in-june-and-july-is-shaping-up-to-be-even-worse-forecasters-say/ https://turismo-stp.org/li-set-humidity-record-in-june-and-july-is-shaping-up-to-be-even-worse-forecasters-say/#respond Sun, 18 Jul 2021 14:42:40 +0000 https://turismo-stp.org/li-set-humidity-record-in-june-and-july-is-shaping-up-to-be-even-worse-forecasters-say/ Sorry, Long Islanders: July could be even heavier than June, when the humidity was almost double the record set in 2005.

Sorry, Long Islanders: July could be even heavier than June, when the humidity was almost double the record set in 2005.

The first half of July “continued the sweltering summer conditions introduced by June,” said Dominic Rammuni, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service based in Upton.

Anyone can guess how humid the rest of summer 2021 can be on Long Island, meteorologists say, as long-range forecasts are often imprecise at best.

“We don’t have a clear idea of ​​why these patterns are being established,” said David Robinson, the New Jersey state climatologist who manages the Rutgers New Jersey Weather Network, by phone.

But climate change is one of the reasons humidity is rising, experts say, causing more powerful storms, heat waves and droughts.

Historic peak

Humidity is measured by dew points, which are reached when the air cools enough for the vapors to condense. This happens, for example, when someone blows on a mirror.

When the dew points are below 55 degrees, it will be “dry and comfortable,” according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. From 55 to 65, he says, he will be clingy or heavy, and at 65 and over, he becomes “oppressive.”

Weather service dew point records for Long Island began in 1973. Until now, June 2005 held the previous record of 90 hours with dew points equal to or greater than 70 degrees.

“We blew this up in June with 169 hours,” Rammuni said.

Then, from July 1 to July 15, the dew point at Islip reached or exceeded 70 degrees for 171 hours – just over seven consecutive days, Rammuni said.

The monthly average for July is 195 hours, or about eight days.

“So we are approaching our monthly average with half the month remaining,” Ramunni said.

The historic peak of the dew point in June was first spotted by Josh Timlin, an earth science teacher at Sea Cliff North Shore High School, though his estimate is just under 155 hours.

“I kind of watch the weather,” said Timlin, who enjoys finding out how a model or development he spots “fits against the backdrop of longer-term trends.”

Another indicator of humidity is clouds, which form when the air contains as much water vapor as possible.

So far, Timlin has said his records show July is notable for its cloud cover. By his calculations, there have been 187 cloud hours so far, more than double the monthly average of 84 – and surpassing the next highest total of 166 set in 1990.

The weather service did not immediately comment on Timlin’s analysis, which it said is based on hourly data from Long Island MacArthur Airport in Islip.

The oppressive humidity of this summer, blowing over the warming Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, has been a stark contrast to the remarkably arid west coast heat wave, which continues to break countless new records. high temperature.

This week should offer some relief with drier air, but perhaps not as much as Long Islanders might hope.

“It’s a bit of a hiatus, maybe not quite the air of late summer / fall, maybe some people are looking forward to now,” David Radell said by phone. , a meteorologist with the Upton-based Weather Service.

The high-pressure system that will reduce the island’s humidity at the start of this week, as its falling air dries and cools, will be partially offset by temperatures that are expected to hang in the upper 80s and even years. 90 bass, Radell said.

And the probability of precipitation was estimated at about 33% from Thursday to Monday following by the Climate Prediction Center of the meteorological service.

Why so much humidity now?

High pressure systems rotate clockwise. So when one of them, called the Bermuda High, flies over the resort island in summer and fall, it can draw warm, humid air north of the Gulf of Mexico and along the coast. is.

“We kind of have this highway from the surface to the middle of the atmosphere with a very strong southwest flow, and it brings a lot of moisture,” said Mark William Wysocki, lecturer in earth sciences. and the atmosphere at Cornell University and New York State. climatologist.

Climate change is increasing air and ocean temperatures around the world, so in the tri-state region, increased evaporation off the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean is increasing humidity as warmer air carries more moisture.

Robinson, the New Jersey climatologist, said, “And sure enough, Long Island is in line to get that humidity.”

Depending on where it drifts, the Bermuda High can also help direct storms and hurricanes to the west or east coast of the Gulf.

Fortunately, the Bermuda high will not stay forever: in winter and early spring, the influence of this semi-permanent high on US weather diminishes as it heads towards the Azores, more than 3,000 miles away. east of Bermuda.

Hottest day of the year in UK as Northern Ireland records highest temperature on record https://turismo-stp.org/hottest-day-of-the-year-in-uk-as-northern-ireland-records-highest-temperature-on-record/ https://turismo-stp.org/hottest-day-of-the-year-in-uk-as-northern-ireland-records-highest-temperature-on-record/#respond Sat, 17 Jul 2021 21:35:11 +0000 https://turismo-stp.org/hottest-day-of-the-year-in-uk-as-northern-ireland-records-highest-temperature-on-record/ Today has been tentatively recorded as the hottest day of the year so far in all four of the UK’s countries, with Northern Ireland reaching the highest temperature on record, the Met Office said.

Today has been tentatively recorded as the hottest day of the year so far in all four of the UK’s countries, with Northern Ireland reaching the highest temperature on record, the Met Office said.

Ballywatticock in County Down, Northern Ireland, reached 31.2 ° C, recorded around 3:40 p.m.

Previously, 30.8 ° C was the highest temperature recorded in Northern Ireland, reached on July 12, 1983 and June 30, 1976, the Met Office said.

The temperature at Linton-on-Ouse, North Yorkshire, England, was recorded at 30.7 ° C, although temperatures could rise further this afternoon.

Usk in Monmouthshire, Wales reached 29 ° C and 28.2 ° C was recorded at Threave, in the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland.

The heat wave will end the prolonged and severe rainy weather that caused flooding in parts of the country earlier this week.

Sunday is expected to be the hottest day of the year so far, due to an “Azores High”, also known as the “Bermuda High”.

This is when the UK is expected to be warmer than Crete, Turkey, Sicily, Gibraltar and parts of Spain and Portugal – according to a BBC forecast.

The mini-heatwave is expected to last at least until Monday – the day dubbed ‘Freedom Day’ – when the government is expected to lift the last of the Covid-19 restrictions.

Met Office meteorologist Andy Page said: ‘The extension of the Azores High is the main reason for the UK’s current weather pattern, which will see much of the UK reaching heatwave thresholds over the course of the UK. weekend and early next week.

“High temperatures will remain within the forecast until next week, but there is a risk of isolated heavy downpours across southern UK on Monday and Tuesday, although this should be broadly acceptable in most areas.”

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said temperatures are expected to exceed 30C.

He added: “31C, 32C would not be out of the question”.

Sunday would be “A hot day, the hottest day of the year so far, the hottest weekend of the year so far,” McGivern added.

The very hot weather prompted warnings from Public Health England (PHE) to keep people cool.

UV rays are at their highest between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., according to PHE guidelines, so those at risk of heat stroke should ensure they are in the shade or indoors between these hours.

Another tip is to wear a hat, apply sunscreen, and avoid physical exertion during the hottest times of the day.

A health alert has been issued in England with high temperatures expected to be “widespread across most of Britain” from the end of the week and throughout the weekend.

The alert, which covers England – excluding parts of the North East, North West and London – is due to last until Tuesday.
