Blustery Showers

  • Blustery Showers

A rather different feel to the weather across the UK today with the remnants of ex-Hurricane Gonzalo now clearing away to the east to leave much of the country under a run of strong to gale force north-westerly winds which are feeding in a number of heavy and squally showers as well as making it feel colder than of late.

This morning is dawning rather cloudy across much of central and eastern Britain with the last of the overnight rain, some of this rain heavy and squally in nature, pushing away to the east. This will allow brighter skies to quickly sweep in from the west but as the winds veer north-westerly and become strong to gale force in strength, with severe gales around exposed coasts and hills in the north, then a scattering of showers will affect many areas, the heaviest and most frequent of the showers in the north and west where they will be squally. Some of the showers could be accompanied by winds gusting up to 70-75mph in exposed spots in the north and west and 50-55mph over inland regions making for some very blustery conditions. As the north-westerly winds set in it will also turn colder with top temperatures in the range of 6C or 7C over parts of Scotland, where it will be cold enough for showers to turn to snow over the highest mountains, to highs of 12C to 14C in the south.

The showers and winds will gradually ease from the west tonight but it will remain very windy with gales down the North Sea coast bringing further showers here. It will be a cold night with temperatures widely dropping down to lows of 2C to 5C. Looking ahead to tomorrow and after a cool and bright start cloud will tend to increase from the northwest as the next Atlantic weather system moves in bringing further rain to much of northern Britain but southern areas should remain drier and brighter.

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.

Gonzalo Turns and Heads For UK


As usual the press have gone into manic mode with regards to ex-Hurricane Gonzalo. After delivering a serious blow to Bermuda on Friday and then brushing Newfoundland on Saturday night Gonzalo has now been picked up on the Polar jet and is heading towards the British Isles.

Before we go into any detail it is worth remembering that getting remnants of ex-Hurricanes and Tropical Storms is nothing new for the UK. There remains some uncertainty with regards to the eventual strength and track of Gonzalo as he crosses the UK on Monday night and into Tuesday, but certainly not as uncertain as ex-Bertha was in August and not quite as potent either.

Fortunately we have a deep area of low pressure across Iceland which will serve to take the sting out of Gonzalo. Gales, perhaps severe gales across Western and Northern areas are likely overnight Monday with heavy rain for Western facing locations. During Tuesday Gonzalo sweeps quickly away to the East leaving the UK in a rather cold and autumnal wake from the North-west.

The potential for snow and blizzard conditions for a time across higher ground of Scotland and feeling cooler for all areas too. We will have more on Gonzalo and the latest track and forecasts throughout Monday and Tuesday on Metcheck.
