Thundery Showers Across South-east

Rather strange synoptic set up this morning. Still have plenty of energy available in the atmosphere across parts of Eastern and South-eastern England and we have two area of low pressure which are set to battle it out during the course of this morning with the South-east caught in the firing line.

Low pressure pushing down from the North-west during the course of today will interact with low pressure across the near continent which destabilises must of the warm, humid air triggering some locally intense downpours.

During the course of the day the area of thundery rain will push South-west into parts of East and West Sussex and Hampshire with cooler, fresher air being pulled in from the North-west.

Showers and longer spells of rain across Western England and Wales as the area of low pressure slides South.

Temperatures around average for this time of year with 19-22c widely across the board.

2014/15 Storm Names

Bit of a change coming this Autumn at Metcheck as we switch from using the German storm naming system to our own one.

The reason? Well last Winter we had an unprecedented run of Atlantic weather systems affect the UK and some of the storm names which were allocated just came across as a little errr strange?!

Many of the names which we used caught on in the public imagination and on social media but it was only the English sounding names which really worked.

So, we thought long and hard about it and decided that for this season we are going to run using our own naming convention. Better than that, YOU can suggest names for us to use and then once we allocate them we will use that name when its turn comes around.

So, take a look at the suggested names so far. We will start allocating the names in the next few days. Oh, and as for our German mates who provided us with names for the past few years? Dankeschön und auf Wiedersehen...

Metcheck v7

Metcheck v6 looks like being the shortest lived version of the site we have ever had? This is due to the fact that we kinda got it wrong with regards to the navigation and flexibility of the existing structure.

But from August 1st a moratorium starts on Metcheck v6 as our programmers start work on the next version of the site. Over the weekend there was a buzz around Metcheck Towers as we started to look at the technology we are using for the next version of the site. Already we promise the following things :-

- It will be responsive (i.e work on all your devices)
- All existing pages will be carried over
- It will have a picture of a cow (on all your devices)
- It will have less adverts
- It won't make you coffee (on any of your devices)

We will shortly be opening a new area in the sandbox to get your wishlist for the next version of the site.

We are planning to launch Metcheck v7 on October 1st 2014. However, we will be running the new version alongside the existing one from September 1st to let you get used to it.
