Wonderful Wednesday

  • Wonderful Wednesday

    Click Here to submit your own images

A beautiful day in store across much of England and Wales today as a weak ridge of high pressure nudges in from the West. A slightly different story for Scotland as low pressure continues to feed in cloud and patchy rain with some strong winds for a time for the Northern Isles.

During the day a band of cloud and patchy rain will spread South but across Central and Southern England the sunshine will hold on and temperatures responding nicely with 23 or 24c expected across Eastern England this afternoon.

One of the things you'll notice is how much fresher it feels today. Lower humidity levels across the country and a slight breeze from the North-west will feel fantastic in the sunshine.

Into tomorrow and some headaches with regards to a frontal system which pushes South bringing the risk of some heavy localised rainfall across parts of South-west and Central England tomorrow afternoon. More on this later.

2014/15 Storm Names

Bit of a change coming this Autumn at Metcheck as we switch from using the German storm naming system to our own one.

The reason? Well last Winter we had an unprecedented run of Atlantic weather systems affect the UK and some of the storm names which were allocated just came across as a little errr strange?!

Many of the names which we used caught on in the public imagination and on social media but it was only the English sounding names which really worked.

So, we thought long and hard about it and decided that for this season we are going to run using our own naming convention. Better than that, YOU can suggest names for us to use and then once we allocate them we will use that name when its turn comes around.

So, take a look at the suggested names so far. We will start allocating the names in the next few days. Oh, and as for our German mates who provided us with names for the past few years? Dankeschön und auf Wiedersehen...

Metcheck v7

Metcheck v6 looks like being the shortest lived version of the site we have ever had? This is due to the fact that we kinda got it wrong with regards to the navigation and flexibility of the existing structure.

But from August 1st a moratorium starts on Metcheck v6 as our programmers start work on the next version of the site. Over the weekend there was a buzz around Metcheck Towers as we started to look at the technology we are using for the next version of the site. Already we promise the following things :-

- It will be responsive (i.e work on all your devices)
- All existing pages will be carried over
- It will have a picture of a cow (on all your devices)
- It will have less adverts
- It won't make you coffee (on any of your devices)

We will shortly be opening a new area in the sandbox to get your wishlist for the next version of the site.

We are planning to launch Metcheck v7 on October 1st 2014. However, we will be running the new version alongside the existing one from September 1st to let you get used to it.

OK, this one stumped us. Why would you need to know the weather when you are 20m under the sea? Well...

We did actually think about making this page grunt every time you loaded it, but decided against it....

A problem shared is a problem halved. But Metcheck is not a problem...
