Milder But Cloudier

  • Milder But Cloudier

    Tap here to send in a sky pic from where you are...


Although it is a frosty start to the day across south-eastern parts of England, milder air is now pushing in from the west as winds back more south-westerly. These winds will bring a lot of cloud with them, and some rain towards north-western parts, but high pressure close to the south should keep southern Britain fine. Temperatures will continue to rise over the next few days, reaching the teens in places by the weekend, but it will always remain rather changeable towards the northwest with some very wet conditions developing across western Scotland.

A frosty start across much of south-eastern England then, but on the whole there is a lot of cloud around across much of the UK this morning, the thickest of this cloud towards northern and western parts of Scotland where some patchy rain and drizzle is falling. Today's forecast is dominated by cloud, but there will be some bright and sunny spells, the best of these towards southeast England, but also over eastern parts of Scotland as well, and in these areas it will turn mild with temperatures of 12°C or 13°C. Otherwise for many places it will remain rather cloudy and dry with temperatures picking up to between 8°C and 11°C, but across northwest Scotland outbreaks of rain will tend to become heavier and more persistent as south-westerly winds freshen,

The rain continues in the northwest tonight, but for much of the rest of the country it will be a mostly cloudy but dry night. A few clearer spells may develop across southern and south-eastern England allowing temperatures to drop low enough for a touch of ground frost in a few spots, but on the whole the cloud will mean a milder night with minimums of 3°C to 6°C. Looking ahead to tomorrow and it will be a degree or so milder again in many places. There will be a lot of cloud around once more, the thicker cloud bringing some rain towards the northwest but elsewhere some bright or sunny spells can be expected, the best of these towards the south and east.

Spring Set To Bloom



Meteorological spring has started off on a chilly note for many parts of the country with a Polar Maritime airmass dominating bringing sunny spells and wintry showers to many areas along with widespread night frosts. Indeed the current Central England Temperature (CET) for March is running at over 1.5°C below normal. We are expecting this figure to recover as we go through the next week or so as much milder and more springlike conditions arrive.

During the next couple of days high pressure builds in from the southwest settling things down, especially towards southern parts of the country, but the northwest will always remain more changeable with Atlantic weather fronts bringing some rain and brisk winds from time to time. A positive North Atlantic Oscillation phase (where pressure is low over Greenland and Iceland whilst high pressure dominates to our south and southwest) will be in place meaning that we can expect mild south-westerly winds across our part of the world.

This means much milder weather is on the way for the end of the week and the weekend, and with high pressure in charge away from the northwest then some areas will see some very pleasant early spring weather, especially where the ever strengthening March sun breaks through the cloud. By the weekend we are expecting to see temperatures widely into the low teens with some places potentially seeing maximums of 16°C or 17°C, values that would be more common in May!

New Upgrades On Site



You might notice a few new things on the site today as we installed one of the largest patch and upgrades on the site for a few years on Metcheck. Many of the forecasts which you see on the site in the table form have been completely rewritten to not only look clearer and more readable with column headings for each day but also you can switch between desktop or mobile friendly view too.

The hobbies area of the site has also been rewritten allowing you to access your hobby forecasts for all your stored locations as well as more relevant weather variables for each hobby. You will also notice a new column on all the forecasts called %SNOW. This column shows you the likelihood of any precipitation falling as snow as opposed to rain for your location.

Behind the scenes there were over 20,000 lines of code which were rewritten to fix issues with land/sea forecast problems for some locations as well as international forecasts which have all been upgraded too. We hope you enjoy the changes and upgrades. Please do let us know if you would like to see any new features, changes or ideas on the site in time for the next major upgrade next month.
