Wet And Windy Northwest

  • Wet And Windy Northwest

    Tap here to send in a sky pic from where you are...


Milder south-westerly winds are now affecting much of the UK, these winds bringing some very wet and windy weather to parts of western Scotland during the next few days with some spots here potentially seeing over 5 inches of rain before the weekend is over, but elsewhere there will be plenty of dry weather around with some sunny spells at times whilst temperatures will be much milder than of late.

To start with this morning there is a lot of cloud around across much of the UK, the thickest of this cloud towards northern and western parts of Scotland where outbreaks of rain are falling, some of this rain heavy and persistent, especially over the west-facing hills and mountains of western Scotland. Further rain can be expected throughout today here, and whilst it may ease for a time around the middle of the day, further heavy and persistent rain will develop this afternoon. Meanhwile for much of the rest of the UK there will be a lot of cloud around, but there will be some bright and sunny spells developing, the best of these towards southeast England, and eastern parts of Scotland, and in these areas it will turn mild with temperatures reaching 13°C. In fact it will be a fairly mild day for many with maximums widely between 10°C and 12°C, but it will become rather windy with gales developing across the northwest.

The rain continues in the northwest tonight, spreading further south into southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland, but for much of the rest of the country it will be a mostly cloudy but dry night. A few clearer spells may develop across southern and south-eastern England but generally the wind and cloud will lead to a mild night with minimums of 5°C to 8°C. Looking ahead to tomorrow and it will be a degree or so milder again in many places despite there being a lot of cloud around but some bright or sunny spells can be expected, the best of these towards the south and east. It will remain very wet and windy in the northwest with those rainfall totals really building up over western Scotland.

Spring Set To Bloom



Meteorological spring has started off on a chilly note for many parts of the country with a Polar Maritime airmass dominating bringing sunny spells and wintry showers to many areas along with widespread night frosts. Indeed the current Central England Temperature (CET) for March is running at over 1.5°C below normal. We are expecting this figure to recover as we go through the next week or so as much milder and more springlike conditions arrive.

During the next couple of days high pressure builds in from the southwest settling things down, especially towards southern parts of the country, but the northwest will always remain more changeable with Atlantic weather fronts bringing some rain and brisk winds from time to time. A positive North Atlantic Oscillation phase (where pressure is low over Greenland and Iceland whilst high pressure dominates to our south and southwest) will be in place meaning that we can expect mild south-westerly winds across our part of the world.

This means much milder weather is on the way for the end of the week and the weekend, and with high pressure in charge away from the northwest then some areas will see some very pleasant early spring weather, especially where the ever strengthening March sun breaks through the cloud. By the weekend we are expecting to see temperatures widely into the low teens with some places potentially seeing maximums of 16°C or 17°C, values that would be more common in May!

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.
