Skew-T Forecasts On Site

Added : 7 hours ago

Oh dear... Skew-T charts are probably the most underused forecasting tools by many meteorologists and for good reason, they look incredibly pretty, but incredibly complicated. Now, Metcheck have made them a little more understandable for you.

Skew-T charts are the bread and butter of forecasting. They show you the atmospheric profile above your head and tell you how stable or unstable the atmosphere is. They also show you the wind information as well as the temperature so that you can tell whether any precipitation will fall as snow, sleet, rain, freezing rain etc etc.

Skew-T charts actually used to be "straight" and the temperature lines used to go from the bottom of the chart straight up, but then some clever clogs decided they looked better "skewed" to 45 degrees and that's where the name Skew-T comes from!

The problem with Skew-T charts is they are a bit like when my dad tried to teach me algebra when I was 9. I ended up in tears as I didn't understand it at all. Then he explained algebra with apples and oranges and as if by magic the whole thing suddenly made sense. Just to confirm though that i didn't burst into tears in the lecture hall when we started doing Skew-T charts...

Take a look at the charts below and check out the Skew-T charts for your location. Don't worry if you don't understand them at the moment (and don't cry) as we will be doing some Skew-T master classes on Metcheck throughout this week and showing you exactly what they are and how, once you use them, you will use them as part of your 5-a-day (Ed. That's your apples and oranges again isn't it?!)

METEOROLOGIST : WAHHHHH

Short-Lived Improvement

Added : Today at 6:00

A weak ridge of high pressure is affecting many parts of Britain and Ireland today but it will only be a transient feature with a deepening Atlantic low set to bring wet and windy weather in from the west tonight and tomorrow. This low looks like becoming unseasonably deep to the west of the country, dropping to around 975mb during tomorrow, bringing severe gales to the open northeast Atlantic with gales affecting exposed parts of the west and northwest of the country later on Wednesday and into Thursday.

This morning is starting off with little wind across the country and there are one or two mist or fog patches to clear. They will soon do so though and then for many places Tuesday will be a fine and dry day with plenty of sunny spells around, and more in the way of sunshine around over central and eastern regions compared to yesterday. However, one or two scattered heavy showers may break out this afternoon just about anywhere, but more likely over western and northern regions. Meanwhile, eastern coastal regions may well continue to hang onto a northerly breeze and a lot of cloud for much of the day with the odd light shower, whilst out towards the southwest thickening cloud will bring some rain and drizzle in across western and southern parts of Ireland and later towards parts of Wales and southwest England. Otherwise most places will see a pleasant summer's day and temperatures will respond in the sunshine with maximums of 19°C to 24°C quite widely.

Central and eastern regions of the country stay dry with clear spells tonight but out to the west freshening winds will bring thickening cloud and outbreaks of heavy rain in across Ireland, this rain extending into much of western Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western regions of England by dawn. Wednesday will then be an unsettled day with the rain and brisk winds continuing to push eastwards before brighter conditions follow on from the west although further showers are likely to break out in the west later in the day.

Slight Navigation Re-jig

Added : Monday at 9:10

A slight re-jig of the top menu is coming later today on Metcheck (at 11am BST). Think of it as a supermarket moving a couple of the sections around in order to give it more space as the product range starts to increase. It won't be anything too dramatic, unlike our local Tesco which moved the entire counter from one end of the shop to the other a few weeks ago and when we walked in to buy some stamps we were confronted with an entire shelf full of cup-a-soups!

You'll notice two new areas at the top of the WEATHER section, namely Models and Advanced. The models section will be for all the raw model output which we have, things like Arome, Arpege, GFS etc, whilst the Charts section will have processed charts, so things like Weather Icon charts, Fogmaps and Snowmaps and stuff like that.

The Advanced section will be made up of the more complicated stuff which is currently in the Forecasts area, so things like ensembles, multi-model and climatic stuff will move from Forecasts to Advanced.

The reason we are doing this is to open up more space in the Forecasts and also the Charts area as we became slightly limited on new models which have coming on the site soon as well as preparation for the Autumn and Winter toys which are currently being programmed and will be available on the site in the next few weeks.

So, there you go, a slight change, but we promise there will be no croutons to deal with.
