'ello Jack... Long time no see?

Didn't expect that did you? The harmonious sound of hundreds of Barclaycards and gym membership cards up and down the country being systematically destroyed by scraping off frost from the windscreen was a bit of a wake up call this morning in more ways than one.

Certainly the coldest night across much of England, Scotland and Wales for a few months as the colder air from the North filters South and clear skies last night along with light winds allowed the mercury to plummet.

Temperatures will respond quickly today (unlike your Barclaycard or gym membership card) as the sun gets to work on the ground and with only a few cumulus bubbling up it should turn into a wonderful afternoon for much of England and Wales.

Across Northern Scotland the cloud will thicken with some rain pushing in from the North-west. This is a new developing area of low pressure (Low Xander) which will push South-east over the next couple of days. However, once this little puppy is out of the way we should see high pressure building in from the West in time for the Bank Holiday Weekend! So, brass monkeys today, wet monkeys tomorrow and we all get to play like monkeys in a few days! Wooo!

Cool Week Ahead


A rather cool week next week across much of the UK as we draw down north or north-westerly winds thanks to low pressure setting up shop to the east and high pressure establishing itself to our west. If it was December or January we'd be talking about snow, but it's not...so we're not. However you may well see the word "frost" mentioned in some forecasts this week despite it still being summer - that's an indication of how cool the airmass will be.

So some chilly nights and showery days ahead, but the sun is still high in the sky so in the sunny spells it will feel pleasantly warm still, especially towards the south where there will be fewer showers and lighter winds. But is that it for summer we hear you ask? Well no, although the next week or so looks cooler than average, there are indications that conditions will improve for the beginning of September, as allured to in our monthly forecast issued yesterday.

Don't forget, we now issue a forecast for the next month on the 15th of every month here on Metcheck - you can view the forecasts and the results (once they become available) on the page linked below.

Wet and Wendy


Sorry, we're sticking with the headline for a bit longer - Wendy doesn't visit us very often.

Low Wendy is now becoming the main feature of the weather and whilst she isn't actually going to bring too much in the way of persistent rain, there will be some pretty windy weather associated with her, especially on Sunday and Monday to northern parts of Britain.

Wendy will continue to deepen as she passes to the northeast of the UK and this combined with rising pressure over the Atlantic will help to bring some pretty strong winds around the southern and western flank of Wendy with north/north-westerly winds on Sunday becoming strong across many regions, but especially in the north where gales are likely around the coasts. Gusts of wind may reach 40-50mph at times, even over inland areas, and some coastal spots may see slightly higher gusts. The strongest gusts are likely to occur around heavy showers that are expected to break out so there could be some pretty squally conditions in places at times.

If this was autumn or winter then we wouldn't pay too much attention to it, but we are still in summer and it's peak holiday time so it's well worth watching out for these blustery winds on Sunday and Monday as they may pose a few problems, especially to any outdoor events taking place. At the present time the forecast team don't consider the conditions to be severe enough to warrant a Weather Watch, but they are monitoring the situation closely and this may change so keep checking the site for the latest information.
