Exclusive : Scottish Weather To Vote NO

In an exclusive interview with Metcheck, the Scottish weather has said it will vote NO in the upcoming referendum. "We've been exporting snow, freezing temperatures and generally crap weather to the soft Southern lads and lassies for hundred years now, so why stop?" it added "Nothing gives us a bigger chuckle than seeing cars sliding around and English people trying to use umbrellas in 50mph winds!"

This comes just a few days before Scotland makes the momentous decision as to whether to keep its own weather in the future and stop the trade of weather between England and Scotland.

"The only thing the English weather has sent us are thunderstorms" Scottish weather said. "Even those are hit and miss, plus last year they didn't send us any! Not one!".

The English weather replied earlier today explaining that due to "budget cuts" they had been unable to send thunderstorms last year but promised that if Scottish weather votes YES then next year Scotland can expect "Bountiful thunderstorms with a rather nice cherry on top!". Responding to the potential of Scottish weather voting NO, English weather added that "If they stop sending us ice, snow and goodness knows what, then we shall moan about something else. Fog and err... low cloud with occasional showers can cause misery for millions, so we shall moan about that."

Metcheck tried to contact French weather to ask whether they had any plans based on the potential outcome but it was still at lunch.

Showers In Places

High pressure sat to the northeast of the UK remains slow-moving but for today we are watching a weak front pushing in from the east will bring more in the way of cloud with it and a few showers, especially towards northern and eastern coastal regions. Otherwise the generally dry and settled theme is set to last well into the week although there will be an increasing risk of some heavy showers breaking out in the south as low pressure tries to push up from the southwest later in the week.

It's another cloudy and overcast start to the day in many places with low cloud, mist and fog patches quite widespread this morning, and the cloud is thick enough to bring some light rain and drizzle, especially across eastern parts of England and Scotland. There could well be some heavier and more persistent bursts of rain affecting parts of northeast England and eastern Scotland today with the rain risk extending into central parts too. Otherwise further to the south and west skies will tend to brighten and some sunny spells will develop although there could be the odd sharp shower popping up almost anywhere this afternoon. Temperatures will be a touch cooler than recently, especially in the cloudier areas and with a light to moderate easterly breeze blowing, but in the sunnier regions maximums in the range of 20C to 22C are likely, but staying in the high teens where it's cloudier.

Tonight will see most places turning rather cloudy and overcast whilst some mist and fog patches will form again, and some further rain or drizzle will affect central and northern regions, most persistent over eastern parts of Scotland. Tomorrow will see southern and western regions enjoying another pleasant day with variable amounts of cloud and some sunny spells, but there will be more cloud and a few showers across central and more especially northern parts.

Metcheck v7 With Metcheck Mums

It's become something of a tradition when it comes to releasing new versions of Metcheck. As you are probably aware we are building the next version of Metcheck here at Metcheck Towers. The new version is truly stunning and is everything you would expect from Metcheck and more. When the final beta version is released from the Towers we initially test it in house with all the programmers and forecasters. Once this has been completed it's the turn of the Metcheck Mums who wander around the new site trying to break it, but more importantly making sure it makes sense and that they know where to click.

Once all this is complete we will launch the new version alongside version 6 for a week to let you guys get used to it and give us more feedback and testing before we launch the final version.

Here are just a few of the new additions to v7 :-

- Totally responsive design, the same site on your browser, tablet and phone
- Brand new style of 7 day forecasts at a glance
- MyMetcheck shows you all the nearest weather happening to you right now
- Cleaner and faster (the site, not the programmers)
- Totally interactive showing real-time weather developments
- More accurate weather models for low cloud
- Full Metcheck for 7 countries around the world.

Metcheck v7 will be available for public testing from Sunday October 5th.
