Harmonie Charts ▼

Whilst the GFS is a great model for global forecasts, for absolute local detail you need a much higher resolution model. Instead of interpolating the GFS model which many other weather sites do, we run the Harmonie weather model for the UK.

This super high resolution model forecasts the weather for the next 48 hours in 3 hour intervals at a resolution of 2.5km! The images are updated at 8.15am and 10.45pm (BST) and take approx 5 mins to complete.

Climatic Deviation ▼

Ok, this sounds like a really posh and complicated tool but it's not.

The Metcheck Climatic Deviation Forecasts allow you to see how the forecasts for the next 16 days match against what you should expect for that day based on a 30 year average.

So, you can see whether any day in the next 2 weeks is expected to be warmer, drier, wetter or cooler than average.

The images begin updating at 4.30am, 10.30am, 4.30pm and 10.30pm (BST) and take approx 90 mins to complete.
