Jet Stream ▼

You probably hear a lot about the Jet Stream in the news. It's either too far North or too far South. The jet stream is identified as winds at 300mb (during Winter) and 200mb (during Summer). It is these winds which are responsible for driving and developing weather systems across the Atlantic.

The images are updated twice a day at 6.10am and 6.10pm (BST) and take approx 20 mins to complete.

Stratosphere Forecasts ▼

The stratosphere is about 35,000ft above your head right now. So why would that matter with regards to the weather? Well, the vortex over the poles is a major factor with regards to weather patterns around the world.

You've probably heard of Sudden Stratospheric Warming? Well this is the page you can use to see whether the polar vortex is intact (means a mobile weather pattern) or whether a pattern change is about to occur.

The images are updated at 6.25am, 12.25pm, 6.25pm and 12.25am (BST) and take approx 35 mins to complete.
