Here Comes Yoda

  • Here Comes Yoda

Well we looked for a picture of Yoda doing the weather forecast but goodness knows how many copyright infringements we would create so we stuck with a picture of some waves...

A generally rubbish day today across much of the country. If it's not raining then it will be cloudy and if it is raining then it will be cloudy anyway. That said, the interest is with Low Yoda which will affect much of Northwest UK later on this evening and overnight into Sunday morning. Later this afternoon we will find an area of heavy rain pushing into Northern Ireland and Northwest Scotland. Some pretty strong winds wrapped around the Southern flank of Yoda which could well bring severe gale force winds to Northern Ireland and later across into Southwest Scotland and the Lowlands later this evening and overnight tonight. If you live in these areas then probably worth checking the garden, gates etc today unless you fancy a trip to the loo at 2am.

Early rain will clear away from the Southeast corner of the UK this morning. More general rain crosses in from the West later though accompanied by strong winds and more banging gates. Into Sunday and Yoda pulls away from the British Isles leaving us all in a cool, blustery airsteam around a much larger area of low pressure than Yoda across Iceland which will provide more in the way of sunshine, but as Yoda taught us... "Size matters not"

New Upgrades On Site



You might notice a few new things on the site today as we installed one of the largest patch and upgrades on the site for a few years on Metcheck. Many of the forecasts which you see on the site in the table form have been completely rewritten to not only look clearer and more readable with column headings for each day but also you can switch between desktop or mobile friendly view too.

The hobbies area of the site has also been rewritten allowing you to access your hobby forecasts for all your stored locations as well as more relevant weather variables for each hobby. You will also notice a new column on all the forecasts called %SNOW. This column shows you the likelihood of any precipitation falling as snow as opposed to rain for your location.

Behind the scenes there were over 20,000 lines of code which were rewritten to fix issues with land/sea forecast problems for some locations as well as international forecasts which have all been upgraded too. We hope you enjoy the changes and upgrades. Please do let us know if you would like to see any new features, changes or ideas on the site in time for the next major upgrade next month.

Wintry Start To Spring



The end of winter is now upon us and provisional figures show that Winter 2014/2015 was the sunniest on record in many areas whilst temperature wise the three months balanced out as almost bang on average with the final figure likely to be around 0.1°C above the long term average. In terms of precipitation and for much of the UK final figures are set to be close to normal with southern and eastern regions of England seeing a drier than average season, but for Scotland this winter was likely to be one of the top ten wettest winters since 1910.

Looking ahead and meteorological spring looks set to start off on a chilly note for many parts of the country with a Polar Maritime airmass dominating during the first few days before high pressure to the southwest builds back in and brings somewhat milder air with it later next week. So for the start of the week a cold westerly wind will prevail bringing sunny spells and wintry showers to many areas, with perhaps some longer spells of rain and snow in places whilst night frosts will be widespread. Most of any settling snow will mainly be confined to higher ground in the north and west, but almost anywhere could see some snow falling at some point during the coming days.

Later in the week high pressure builds from the southwest settling things down, especially towards southern parts of the country, but the northwest may remain more changeable whilst temperatures will start to recover as winds back more south-westerly.
