Calming Down

Following the gales and squally showers yesterday then many of you will be glad to hear that today is looking quieter with the winds easing. However the changeable theme will continue with another Atlantic weather system moving in from the west bringing outbreaks of rain into many northern and western regions of the UK during today.

This morning is dawning bright and chilly in many areas with some good spells of sunshine developing across central and eastern parts of England and Scotland especially. However out towards the west cloud is already thickening across Wales, western and north-western England, Northern Ireland and over western Scotland with outbreaks of rain moving in across the northwest. The rain will turn heavy and persistent over western Scotland where over 2 inches of rain may fall today, whilst rain will also affect Northern Ireland, north Wales and northwest England. Elsewhere it will be a drier story, but cloud will continue to thicken from the west so that by this afternoon the best of any sunshine will become confined to East Anglia and southeast England. Winds will be lighter than yesterday but nonetheless a fresh to strong south-westerly wind will pick up in the northwest whilst temperatures will be close to normal with maximums ranging from 9C to in the north to 13C or 14C in the southeast.

It will be a milder night for many with a lot of cloud for much of the time. Further spells of rain will affect the north and west, with some patchy light rain and drizzle breaking out elsewhere. Looking ahead to tomorrow and many places will see a lot of cloud at times with some patchy rain and drizzle, most of this towards northern and western regions with the best of any brighter spells towards eastern areas.

Next Week : Metcheck v7


Yay! Metmoo is back...

We would tell a white lie and say that Metcheck v7 has been tested on cows... but it hasn't. In fact Metcheck v7 hasn't been tested on any animals whatsoever so if you get it in your eyes and it stings then you only have yourselves to blame. (Ed. Let's try to keep this sensible eh?)

But behind the scenes we have been working hard on the new version of Metcheck. We wanted a site which was dynamic, one which kept you totally up to date with any developing weather situations. We wanted it to be easy to use and understand and available on every device you own. We wanted cows! (Ed. Please?). But we also wanted a site with data and functions you could trust. Even though the new site looks more like version 5 (remember the blue one?) it has been totally overhauled with many areas being rewritten and tested with new data.

We have new features on it including snow maps, live data as well as new MyMetcheck panel which shows you where the nearest lightning is!

Before we switch the old version off and move everyone across to the new one we would love you to check it out so that you can get used to it and have a little play with it. So..... c'mon and do you, us and Metmoo a favour and make a cup of tea (with milk... hehe!) put your feet up and click the link below to check out the new site and have a play.

Gonzalo Turns and Heads For UK


As usual the press have gone into manic mode with regards to ex-Hurricane Gonzalo. After delivering a serious blow to Bermuda on Friday and then brushing Newfoundland on Saturday night Gonzalo has now been picked up on the Polar jet and is heading towards the British Isles.

Before we go into any detail it is worth remembering that getting remnants of ex-Hurricanes and Tropical Storms is nothing new for the UK. There remains some uncertainty with regards to the eventual strength and track of Gonzalo as he crosses the UK on Monday night and into Tuesday, but certainly not as uncertain as ex-Bertha was in August and not quite as potent either.

Fortunately we have a deep area of low pressure across Iceland which will serve to take the sting out of Gonzalo. Gales, perhaps severe gales across Western and Northern areas are likely overnight Monday with heavy rain for Western facing locations. During Tuesday Gonzalo sweeps quickly away to the East leaving the UK in a rather cold and autumnal wake from the North-west.

The potential for snow and blizzard conditions for a time across higher ground of Scotland and feeling cooler for all areas too. We will have more on Gonzalo and the latest track and forecasts throughout Monday and Tuesday on Metcheck.
