Shower Risk In Southwest
High pressure continues to sit over Scandinavia and much of the UK remains under a east/south-easterly airflow which will continue to bring a fair amount of dry and fairly warm weather with it. If anything temperatures will nudge up over the next few days, reaching the mid-twenties across central and southern parts of England. However as that low to the southwest edges closer there will be an increasing chance of some heavy, thundery showers breaking out, especially over the Channel Islands and southwest England.
Back to this morning and it is another dull start with low cloud, mist and fog patches quite widespread this morning, and the cloud is thick enough to bring some drizzle in places too, especially across central and eastern parts of England. On the whole many areas will brighten up this morning and some sunny spells will develop by this afternoon although there could then be the odd sharp shower popping up almost anywhere, but most likely over the Channel Islands and the southwest of England where they could turn thundery. Meanwhile along eastern coastal regions of both England and Scotland it is likely to remain predominantly dull, misty and overcast with some more drizzle at times and here temperatures will be in the mid-high teens. However in the brighter and sunnier areas maximums of 22°C to 25°C are quite likely with winds in most places a light to moderate east/south-easterly.
Tonight will see most places turning rather cloudy again with low cloud, mist and fog patches developing again whilst a few heavy and thundery showers will continue to threaten the Channel Islands and the far southwest of England. Tomorrow will see very little change overall with many places away from the dull and damp northeast seeing plenty of bright and warm weather developing after a cloudy start, but a few heavy, thundery showers may again break out towards the far south and southwest of England along with the Channel Islands.

Exclusive : Scottish Weather To Vote NO
In an exclusive interview with Metcheck, the Scottish weather has said it will vote NO in the upcoming referendum. "We've been exporting snow, freezing temperatures and generally crap weather to the soft Southern lads and lassies for hundred years now, so why stop?" it added "Nothing gives us a bigger chuckle than seeing cars sliding around and English people trying to use umbrellas in 50mph winds!"

This comes just a few days before Scotland makes the momentous decision as to whether to keep its own weather in the future and stop the trade of weather between England and Scotland.
"The only thing the English weather has sent us are thunderstorms" Scottish weather said. "Even those are hit and miss, plus last year they didn't send us any! Not one!".
The English weather replied earlier today explaining that due to "budget cuts" they had been unable to send thunderstorms last year but promised that if Scottish weather votes YES then next year Scotland can expect "Bountiful thunderstorms with a rather nice cherry on top!". Responding to the potential of Scottish weather voting NO, English weather added that "If they stop sending us ice, snow and goodness knows what, then we shall moan about something else. Fog and err... low cloud with occasional showers can cause misery for millions, so we shall moan about that."
Metcheck tried to contact French weather to ask whether they had any plans based on the potential outcome but it was still at lunch.

Metcheck v7 With Metcheck Mums
It's become something of a tradition when it comes to releasing new versions of Metcheck. As you are probably aware we are building the next version of Metcheck here at Metcheck Towers. The new version is truly stunning and is everything you would expect from Metcheck and more. When the final beta version is released from the Towers we initially test it in house with all the programmers and forecasters. Once this has been completed it's the turn of the Metcheck Mums who wander around the new site trying to break it, but more importantly making sure it makes sense and that they know where to click.
