High pressure will be building in across the UK today to bring increasingly settled conditions in across many areas. This high will remain close to the south of the country during the coming days, bringing south-westerly winds and much milder conditions to many parts with temperatures rising into the teens by the weekend in places, but it will always remain rather changeable towards the northwest with some wind and rain here at times.

This morning starts bright and chilly in many parts but there are still a scattering of showers around, these mainly affecting coastal regions in the north and west. On the whole the showers will become increasingly isolated today with the winds easing and more in the way of sunny spells developing and by this afternoon most places should be dry. However by then cloud will be increasing across Northern Ireland and western Scotland with some rain moving in around dusk. Top temperatures in the north today will range from between 6°C and 8°C whilst in the south 7°C to 10°C is expected so it will begin to feel a touch milder than recently,

It will be a cold night for many parts of England and Wales tonight though as clearing skies will allow temperatures to drop down close to or just below freezing with some frost and icy patches forming. However for Scotland and Northern Ireland that cloud moving in from the west along with some patchy rain will keep temperatures up, although there could be some frost over southern and eastern Scotland for a time before the cloud arrives. Looking ahead to tomorrow and for Scotland and Northern Ireland a cloudy day is expected with some rain moving south-eastwards, this rain reaching parts of northern England by the evening, but for the rest of England and Wales it should be a mostly dry day with sunny spells although cloud will tend to increase.

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.
