Fresher Northwest

  • Fresher Northwest

    Click Here to submit your own images

A rather cloudy midweek period for many areas as a couple of weak cold fronts push slowly east/south-eastwards across the UK. These will gradually clear away to leave many parts fine tomorrow, but some very wet and windy weather will then push into the northwest for Thursday night and Friday as the unsettled weather really begins to take hold.

Back to this morning and it is starting off on the murky side in many areas with some mist, fog and low cloud across much of the UK along with some patchy outbreaks of rain or drizzle in places too. However clearer and sunnier conditions will soon be coming into northwest Scotland and Northern Ireland and these will slowly spread southeast to leave much of Scotland and Northern Ireland with a sunny afternoon although a few showers will affect the northwest. Meanwhile for England and Wales it will remain rather cloudy today with further sporadic bursts of rain in places, especially over northern and western areas, but some brighter and warmer spells will develop this afternoon across central and eastern districts. Maximum temperatures will range from a fresher 13C or 14C in the north and west to a still rather warm 19C to 21C towards the south and east of England, warmest in the brighter spots of eastern England, whilst winds will be light to moderate south-westerlies for most but fresh or strong in the northwest of Scotland.

That cloud and patchy rain will tend to become confined to southern and eastern parts of England tonight but it will stay mild here. Further north and west and many areas will see a much colder night with clear skies and a touch of frost forming in rural spots. Looking ahead to tomorrow and many places will see a dry day with sunny spells, although there will be variable amounts of cloud around at times, the thickest of which may bring the odd shower across southern and eastern England. Meanwhile south/south-westerly winds will freshen across Northern Ireland and western Scotland in advance of heavy rain arriving overnight.

Metcheck v7 BETA

Yes, Christmas has come early for all you lucky Metcheckers as we beta release v7 of the site.

The new version has loads of new features and toys as well as plenty of coding which has changed under the bonnet with regards to cloud forecasting algorithms and other boring stuff which we won't go on about.

We are hoping to have v7 in Beta for a fortnight to allow you to take a look at it, let us know your thoughts and any recommendations as well as any bugs which you might find which we can squash in time for the full release.

We honestly think v7 is the best version of the site to date. Cleaner, faster and developed to let you get the best weather forecast in the quickest amount of time.

You can view the new site by going to

We hope you like it.

BIG change next week

Quite amusing watching the Atlantic having a go at breaking down the blocking pattern this week. During the course of today and tomorrow a couple of weak frontal systems scrape around the edge of the high pressure area across the UK in a feeble attempt to bring cooler, fresher weather to much of the country.

Then the Atlantic seriously goes for it on Friday with a very active frontal system pushing down from the North-west. Behind the front is a marked change in air mass to a much cooler and Autumnal-like feel. The cold front coming through on Friday and Saturday is an ana cold front as opposed to kata. The difference between the two is the structure of the front. When you have half baked affairs which bring cloud, patchy rain and slightly cooler air that's probably a kata front. When the airmass changes drastically with heavy rainfall along the front then it's an ana front.

Into next week and low pressure takes hold. Trust us, you'll be digging out your jacket and gloves this weekend as we see strong winds, heavy rain and frequent showers push in from the West for the bulk of next week. In short, Autumn arrive this weekend and in style!
