Mostly Cloudy

A generally mild and cloudy day is in store for much of the UK today with all parts of the country under the influence of a mild and rather moist south-westerly airstream. A number of weather fronts will be straddling the country, but most of any rain will be found across north-western districts. During the next day or two those fronts will gradually clear south-eastwards to leave a reasonable weekend for many although the northwest will always remain rather more unsettled.

This morning is dawning overcast and cloudy across many areas with some patchy rain and drizzle around, most of this over western parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and into northwest England where there will be some heavier bursts around today. On the whole it will be a mostly cloudy day in most areas with further patchy rain and drizzle at times, but some brighter spells will develop in some sheltered eastern districts and there may be some sunshine in-between a few sharp showers over northern parts of Scotland. Winds will generally be moderate to fresh south-westerlies and temperatures will be a touch milder than yesterday with maximums ranging from 14C to 16C quite widely.

It will be a mild 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 but later in the night clearer and more showery conditions will move into many parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland. Looking ahead to tomorrow and many parts of England and Wales will see a lot of cloud with some rain and drizzle, the rain becoming heavier and more persistent over central areas, whilst for Scotland and Northern Ireland it will be cooler and brighter with some scattered showers.

Meridional Pattern Developing

Been some interesting developments in the weather models in the past couple of days with some strange weather scenarios across Europe as we move into November.

Obviously the main thing to understand is that the models are never perfect and we never take any one run as gospel. But, saying that, the models are now hinting at a pattern change which could well bring some interesting weather in the near future.

The pattern developing is a meridional one. The opposite of meridional is zonal, which is the endless areas of low pressure rattling in off the Atlantic. Meridional is where the jet stream starts to meander further from North to South and allows the amplification of areas of high pressure and low pressure to become that much greater.

When this happens there is always the risk of dragging in air from much further afield. Sometimes this can be cold (if from the North or East) or warm (if from the South) at this time of year. There is no any one signal telling us what the outcome is likely to be just yet. It's a bit like getting home and seeing a brown envelope on the floor.... is it a tax bill or a tax rebate?

One thing is for sure and that is the patterns are about to shift and give us a glimpse of what we can expect for the coming season. Worth keeping a close eye on the GFS charts over the next few days.

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.
