Tuesday : Boring Weather

  • Tuesday : Boring Weather

    Click Here to submit your own images

Just flicking through the images which we can use for the front page and came across a cup of coffee?! Not quite sure why or when we would ever use this picture so seeing as the weather is a tad on the benign side today we thought we would use it.... makes sense doesn't it?

Obviously the coffee isn't the espresso ones as it as some strange foam on the top which certainly isn't a cappuccino (Ed. Err weather site?)

Anyway, back to the weather. Starting off clear and bright across much of Central and Southern England this morning as we lose the area of low pressure which brought some rather strange weather to the South-east yesterday morning. During the course of the day an active frontal system which is currently across much of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Northern England will spread steadily South-east.

As it does so it will run into high pressure which will erode the front rather quickly. This means that Southern and Eastern areas will stay dry and bright for much of the day with perhaps 23 or 24c across parts of East Anglia this afternoon before the decaying frontal system arrives. Elsewhere for Western areas of England and Wales it's patchy rain but brightening later as the frontal system sweeps through.

Looking slightly further ahead it looks as though gradually the weather will break down from the North-west towards the middle to end of the week meaning not only rain, but also probably no more opportunities to use cups of coffee as a picture so enjoy....

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.
