3hr Rainfall - Displays sea level pressure and the accumulated 3hr rainfall amounts
2m Temperature - The forecast temperature in centigrade at 2m above ground
Freezing level - This is also known as the zero degree isotherm and shows the height at which all air above is freezing or below
Rain/Snow - This shows you whether precipitation will fall as sleet or.... snow.
850mb Temperature - This is the temperature of the air at the 850mb pressure level. This is the height at which day and nighttime heating have no effect on the atmosphere
CAPE - This is the amount of convective potential of the atmosphere for the creation of thunderstorms
Cloud Cover/Thickness - This displays the cloud cover, rainfall and thickness of the air showing how precipitation is likely to fall.

Ensembles ▼

Ensembles are clever things. If you ask a weather forecaster whether it will rain next week, they will probably say "Well, it may do. Or it may not...". That really isn't very helpful, so this is where ensembles come into play.

Every 6 hours, the GFS weather model is run not once, but 20 times and this gives us a fantastic tool to see how many of the model runs agree with each other. Click on the tools below for more information on ensemble forecasting.

Winter 2014 Forecast ▼

Every November our meteorologists take a little look at what kind of patterns we are expecting to develop across Europe this coming Winter.

Sometimes we are right, sometimes wrong and sometimes very wrong but it's all part of the fun. Our forecasters try to explain the reasoning behind the forecasts (usually unsuccessfully) but if anything it's a jolly good read and we hope it gives you a better understanding as to how the weather evolves across the continent.

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.
