Mondays Madness


Well, it's still Easter I guess so chocolate is the order of the day (try chocolate with chilli... it's the future!)

As to the weather and it's a bit of a smorgasbord with some heavy, thundery showers across Southern areas, cloud across the North and some bizarre BBQ's going on in between.

So, for the South and it's a dull start for most areas. We are watching a pool of upper air moisture pushing in from the South-east (aren't we all?!). We are now heading to the time of year where the sun has quite a bit of power. Add a few other ingredients and it can produce some pretty incredible effects and today is one of those. The region to watch is really the M4 corridor. Add the heat, add the moisture and we will see some impressive showers develop later this morning.

During the day these are likely to push quickly West into the Bristol area and then into South or Central Wales early this evening. For the rest of the country it's a case of cloud across Scotland (but you cant' moan as you've had 3 sunny days!) and cloud across Eastern areas as the brisk Easterly wind continues.

Highest temperatures should be across Western England as well as parts of Lincolnshire where we could well see 20c in the sunshine. Enjoy your last day off. Tomorrow you're back to work like the rest of us :-)

Quendolin Creates North/South Split


Low Quendolin will continue to affect Southern areas of the UK throughout Easter Sunday and into Eastern Monday. It's rather interesting how weather models have struggled with the intensity, trajectory and movement of Quendolin over the last 48 hours.

As you're probably aware the usual trajectory of weather systems over the UK is from the South-west to the North-east. Quendolin has pushed in from the East and is now heading West. Obviously Quendolin will continue to behave in a way which is totally influenced by the basic rules of physics. However, the reason many models have struggled with Quendolin is purely because the development, movement and intensity of the system has been a little strange for our shores.

At the moment the weather models are still in slight disagreement with the intensity of the main frontal band which heads North during today and into tomorrow. There is also some conflicting views with regards to the development of home grown storms during Easter Monday. Certainly the potential for some beefy showers across Southern, South-eastern and West England during Easter Monday afternoon. This risk then spreads into South Wales during Easter Monday evening.

So, in short be prepared for some intense downpours across Southern and Central England and Wales today and tomorrow. Quendolin won't give up her secrets just yet and the models will continue to struggle with her. So, if Metcheck says your region will stay dry tomorrow and you get caught in a shower don't blame Metcheck... blame Quendolin.

Convective Week Coming Up


A change in the weather patterns this week as high pressure which has been the dominant force for many over the past couple of weeks slips away and allows a significant upper trough to to become established over the British Isles.

The process started over the last half of the Easter weekend with low Quendoline pushing in rather strangely from the South-east. During the first half of this week we are under the control of Iberian weather with some unstable and moist air dragged in from the continent. This will allow the potential for home grown storms across the UK during Tuesday.

For the second half of the week and it's return of the Atlantic as the upper trough and Iberian low allows the Atlantic to make inroads once again from the West. Some heavy showers expected ahead of incoming weather systems will mean the potential for some interesting convective activity this week.

Towards the end of the week and a deep area of low pressure once again swings in from the Atlantic bringing more rain and unsettled weather. The synoptic setup at the moment across Western Europe is rather interesting and will allow for a few complex situations over the next few days. Not everywhere will see heavy rain, not everywhere will see rain. But, the overall scenario shows the Atlantic making more of a presence over the coming week or so and some interesting situations developing as a result due to the strengthening sun at this time of year.
