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.

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.
