Nice name to this area of low pressure pushing in from the Atlantic on Saturday evening.... Yoda!

Been quite a bit of confusion with the handling of Yoda over the last few days with the GFS model. Seems that the GFS is struggling when two areas of low pressure are in close proximity to each other and both heading Eastwards across the Atlantic. Anyway, back to Saturday evening and pretty much all the models are now in fair agreement with how Yoda will head in during Saturday afternoon and into the evening initially across Northern Ireland.

Heavy rain will be one feature of Yoda, the second being the strong winds which will develop across his (?!) Southern flank affecting parts of Southwest Scotland and Northwest England. Winds of 60-70mph are likely across Northwestern coastal areas with perhaps an 80mph thrown in there somewhere.

Yoda will cross the region overnight leaving many areas with a cooler, fresher and blustery day on Sunday with frequent showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow especially across the North.

New Upgrades On Site



You might notice a few new things on the site today as we installed one of the largest patch and upgrades on the site for a few years on Metcheck. Many of the forecasts which you see on the site in the table form have been completely rewritten to not only look clearer and more readable with column headings for each day but also you can switch between desktop or mobile friendly view too.

The hobbies area of the site has also been rewritten allowing you to access your hobby forecasts for all your stored locations as well as more relevant weather variables for each hobby. You will also notice a new column on all the forecasts called %SNOW. This column shows you the likelihood of any precipitation falling as snow as opposed to rain for your location.

Behind the scenes there were over 20,000 lines of code which were rewritten to fix issues with land/sea forecast problems for some locations as well as international forecasts which have all been upgraded too. We hope you enjoy the changes and upgrades. Please do let us know if you would like to see any new features, changes or ideas on the site in time for the next major upgrade next month.

Sunniest In East



A quiet end to the working week as a ridge of high pressure builds in to bring plenty of dry and bright weather to many areas for a time today. However as we go into the weekend predominantly unsettled weather is expected with disturbances pushing in from the west bringing further spells of wind and rain, especially on Saturday night, before colder and more showery conditions return on Sunday.

It is a fine and chilly start to Friday across much of the UK with clear skies overnight having allowed temperatures to drop low enough for a touch of frost and some icy surfaces, especially where showers have fallen. Showers continue to pepper northern and western coastal regions of Scotland and Northern Ireland this morning, but . even these will tend to become fewer and further between with many parts seeing a dry day. There will be some sunshine at times, especially towards central and eastern areas with more in the way of cloud moving into the west later as south/south-westerly winds begin to pick up. This cloud will thicken up to bring some rain into southwest England, Wales, Northern Ireland and western Scotland later this afternoon and into the evening whilst there may be some snow over the Scottish mountains. Maximum temperatures today generally will be in the range of 5°C to 9°C, highest values towards the southeast of England.

It will be a milder night tonight in many areas, although the southeast of England may be chilly for a time, and that cloud and rain in the west will be spreading further east. This cloud and rain fizzles out during the course of tomorrow with some drier and brighter conditions developing for a time, but we are expecting increasingly wet and windy weather to sweep eastwards on Saturday night with a risk of gales or severe gales developing in the south. More on this during the next day or two here on Metcheck.
