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.

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.

Important note for media and newspapers. You are not allowed to copy or reference any of Metchecks forecasts or views without our written permission under any circumstances.

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.

NEW - Under the charts you can also see where the jet stream *should* be at this time of year based on the 1981-2013 climatic averages

The images are updated twice a day at 6.10am and 6.10pm (BST) and take approx 20 mins to complete.
