Rain Into The South

Some changes in store today as the fine weather of the last couple of days gets pushed further north and west thanks to an area of low pressure encroaching from the southeast. This means that for much of England and Wales a cloudier day is in store with outbreaks of rain pushing into southern counties.

This morning is starting off on a rather cloudy note across much of England and Wales with the best of the bright or sunny spells over northern and western areas. For Scotland and Northern Ireland it is brighter with some good sunny spells developing once any low cloud lifts. Here it will remain mostly fine for much of the day with temperatures picking up into the mid teens in the sunshine, although eastern Scotland will be cooler and cloudier. Meanwhile further south showery outbreaks of rain across southeast England will tend to become heavier and more persistent today, especially across Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight by this afternoon whilst for the Channel Island spells of rain are likely for much of the day before easing later. For the rest of England and Wales, including the Isle of Man it will be generally dry bar a few showers breaking out this afternoon across East Anglia, the Midlands and into Wales. The best of any brightness will be across north-western England and Wales. Temperatures will be similar to yesterday, but feeling cooler as a stiff north-easterly wind picks up, especially along eastern coasts.

The rain in the south will edge a little further north tonight into the Midlands and Wales but will tend to die out as it does so. It will otherwise be a cloudier and milder night for many with the wind helping to prevent any frost worries away from the glens of Scotland. A few scattered showers are likely in places outside of the rain zone, but otherwise many areas should stay mainly dry. Easter Monday will then see a mixture of some warm sunny spells and scattered heavy showers, the showers most likely in the south and the driest conditions towards the north.

Finally from all of us here at Metcheck, we wish you all a very Happy Easter.

Easter Dilemma Continues

So... will it be the parents? The in-laws? Or shelves?

Finally the weather is starting to become a little clearer as to what we can expect for the long Easter weekend. So, without further ado here is the latest forecast and recommended activity planner for the Easter Weekend :-

Good Friday
Go to B&Q and look at shelves! Probably the best of the days across the bulk of the country as high pressure ridges back in from the West. Dry for many areas with more cloud across Scotland and Northern England. Temperatures 13-15c but perhaps 16 or 17c across Central and Western England.

Easter Saturday
Go to B&Q and buy the shelves! Mostly cloudy across much of England and Wales with sunshine in Scotland. A keen Easterly picking up across Eastern England with some showers edging into South-east England later in the day

Easter Sunday
Make space on the living room floor and unpack the shelves! Heavy rain pushing North-west across much of England and Wales with some cool, gusty winds developing across much of the UK. Scotland will however see the best of the sunshine for much of the day.

Easter Monday
Spend 2 hours looking for the chuck key for the drill then put the shelves up! Low pressure across the UK will bring a cool, showery day across much of the country. Heaviest will be in the North as well as Northern Ireland.

So, there you have it. If your parents live in Scotland then go and see them. If your in-laws live in Scotland then go and see them. Other than that you'll be putting shelves up on Monday like the rest of us.

Have a fantastic and peaceful Easter from all at Metcheck.

Metcheck Easter Egg Hunt

Aww you didn't think you'd get no Easter eggs from Metcheck this year did you?

Well as we all wind down for the long Easter holiday weekend it's time for a few fun and games on Metcheck. We've hidden some Easter eggs around the site. In fact, some of the eggs have been opened... (Ed. What?)

So in true Metcheck style we are going to give away an Easter egg which comes complete with a crap mug to whoever can find all the Easter eggs on the site. You don't need to tell us where they are but just tell us how many Easter eggs we've hidden on Metcheck and then post your guess to the Metcheck Facebook page.

We will then pick a winner at random and will actually send them a *real* Easter Egg with the worst mug we could find here in the Metcheck Towers cupboard.

So... what are you waiting for? Go hunt!

PS - We've hidden them in some strange places
PPS - The mug is really crap! (Ed. But clean?!)
