Model Time Plots ▼

No, it's not something out of Dr Who! The GFS Time Plotter allows you to scan the entire dataset of the latest GFS model run and find out the maximum, minimum and average values of all the weather variables.

This feature is especially handy when it comes to perhaps totaling up rain values, or finding the highest wind speeds.... but it doesn't do time travel, we've tried.

Teleconnections ▼

Every day at 4pm, Metcheck checks the values at strategic places around the globe to view the values of the three main teleconnections.

NAO - North Atlantic Oscillation
AO - Arctic Oscillation
PNA - Pacific North America Pattern

You can check the latest recordings for the past three months on this page.

CycloneTracker ▼

Weather models are funny things. Especially then it comes to forecasting the track and intensity of areas of low pressure, tropical storms and hurricanes.

The Metcheck cyclone tracker will show you the forecast track/intensity of weather systems which we are covering. The chart below shows you a snapshot of where we expect the centre of the system to be every 6 hours.

The data is updated at 0.00am, 6.00am, 12.00pm and 6.00pm (BST) and take approx 1 min to complete.
