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.
Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall at Metcheck Towers? Sadly, our offices are spotless and if you were a fly we'd probably squish you with a rolled up newspaper before you even heard what we talk about.
The Metcheck Forecasters Discussion page is a behind the scenes look at how we are following developing weather situations. We always add one each day and sometimes far more frequently if a critical weather day develops. In the Forecast Discussions you'll see how we are following developing situations and with our expert knowledge of numerical models we can give you an insight as to whether the models should be trusted or not.
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
