.............................
The weather seems to be stuck on a repeating weekly cycle of strong winds and heavy rain, and, with the ground already saturated, the rain rapidly sets off another round of flooding.
More strong winds will prevail across England and Wales early this week. On Monday by yet another deep area of low pressure, which is expected to hit the UK with wind and heavy rain. The cause of this latest episode of foul weather is (as I mentioned before Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis) more Arctic air plunging down into North America. As that cold air bumps into much milder air farther south it injects a big burst of energy into the jet stream high above, driving it into a furious torrent of high-speed winds. As the jet stream powers across the Atlantic it drives depressions into high winds and heavy rains and sends them hurtling towards the UK.
This month is on course to become the wettest February on record .
BUT..... More on "Hope Springs Eternal" .........................Haven't we had a torrid time over the last few weeks with wind and rain and one storm after another!, but there is hope ahead — the hours of daylight are growing longer at an ever increasing pace. When the days "turned" the change was barely a minute a day - but now, daylight hours are increasing by nearly 4 minutes a day each day. It takes a few weeks from late December before we really notice the change.
It may seem strange that it is still so cold when the daylight hours are growing longer at an increasing pace. This is because our environment is like a giant storage radiator - it heats and cools very slowly. It takes a long time for the land and sea to lose the heat they had absorbed over the previous summer, but now in late winter the land and sea are reaching their coldest points of the year, and that has a big impact on our weather - especially as our storm travel (the "wind run") crosses the cold Atlantic Ocean!.

Busy recently week putting cameras in bird boxes (you might remember that I have placed them live online previously) - getting ready just in case we get lucky with nesting in the Spring - straight away can see that an enterprising blue tit is seeking refuge from the winds and weather, in one or our boxes ! - every night around 5.20pm it flies in and settles down in this box, fluffs up its feathers to conserve heat, and sleeps until the following dawn - lovely to see - CLICK ON THE BLUE TIT if you would like to see it (Now sound added to the video)   AND my neighbour Michael Pick has recorded an online shot of the bird arriving in the box last Friday, at 5 past 5 in the evening  CLICK HERE to see that

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Friday 28 Feb - Sunday 8 Mar
To start the period, unsettled and often windy conditions will continue with areas of rain moving east across the UK, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes. Rain is likely to be heaviest across western areas, with wintry showers in the north. The south will see the best of any more prolonged drier interludes. Continuing through the period, there is an increased chance of deep low pressure systems affecting somewhere in the UK, causing large amounts of rainfall and very strong winds. Temperatures are likely to frequently oscillate between rather cold and rather mild. During any colder interludes, there is likely to be some snow on the high ground of the north. The weather may become more settled in the southeast at the very end of this period, though remaining unsettled elsewhere.
Sunday 8 Mar - Sunday 22 Mar
A continuation of the unsettled weather is expected at first in the north, with spells of rain and strong winds broken by brighter, but showery conditions. The heaviest rain and strongest winds are expected in the northwest. It should be more settled with drier conditions expected in southern and eastern parts. Progressing through this period, conditions will likely turn more settled across most areas by the middle of March, with more prolonged dry spells possible, especially in the south. Any further spells of wet and windy weather most likely in the north. Temperatures mostly above average, but there will be large diurnal variations should more settled conditions take control, with frosts becoming likely.
