Blustery Showers

A cold and blustery start to the new working week across much of the UK as we draw in increasingly cold air from the west with sunshine and wintry showers the order of the day for many places. It remains chilly over the next few days with widespread night time frosts, but by the end of the week there are signs of high pressure building in from the southwest to bring milder conditions with it.

Back to this morning and Monday will start off bright and breezy in many parts but there are plenty of showers running into northern and western regions, some of these heavy with hail and thunder in places as well as falling as sleet and snow quite widely. Towards southern and eastern districts there are more in the way of drier spells around to start with but we are expecting the showers to become somewhat more widespread today, the showers falling as a mixture of rain, hail, sleet and snow, but no significant accumulations are expected for most with the March sunshine soon melting any deposits after the showers. Not everywhere will see the showers though, and southern and south-eastern England may well escape with a largely dry day with some good sunny spells. Top temperatures will range from between 2°C and 5°C in the north and 5°C to 8°C in the south, feeling colder in the gusty winds and in the showers.

It will be a cold night for many areas as clearing skies will allow temperatures to fall away with some frost and icy patches forming. However showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow will continue to affect many northern and western regions whilst a small system may bring a more persistent area of rain and snow across southern counties of England and Wales - we will have more updates on this on our Facebook and Twitter pages today. Looking ahead to tomorrow and once again sunny spells and blustery wintry showers will be the order of the day for many, the showers always heaviest and most frequent towards the north and west of the country.

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.

Wintry Start To Spring



The end of winter is now upon us and provisional figures show that Winter 2014/2015 was the sunniest on record in many areas whilst temperature wise the three months balanced out as almost bang on average with the final figure likely to be around 0.1°C above the long term average. In terms of precipitation and for much of the UK final figures are set to be close to normal with southern and eastern regions of England seeing a drier than average season, but for Scotland this winter was likely to be one of the top ten wettest winters since 1910.

Looking ahead and meteorological spring looks set to start off on a chilly note for many parts of the country with a Polar Maritime airmass dominating during the first few days before high pressure to the southwest builds back in and brings somewhat milder air with it later next week. So for the start of the week a cold westerly wind will prevail bringing sunny spells and wintry showers to many areas, with perhaps some longer spells of rain and snow in places whilst night frosts will be widespread. Most of any settling snow will mainly be confined to higher ground in the north and west, but almost anywhere could see some snow falling at some point during the coming days.

Later in the week high pressure builds from the southwest settling things down, especially towards southern parts of the country, but the northwest may remain more changeable whilst temperatures will start to recover as winds back more south-westerly.
