About


UK Weather Forecasts aims to bring you frequent and easy to understand weather forecasts whilst going into the more technical aspect and behind the scenes that comes with forecasting. UK Weather Forecasts not only aims to bring you accurate forecasts, but we also aim to teach and help you understand what goes into forecasting and what the various weather models mean and how to interpret them.

To do this, each model is explained in a simple and easy to understand way when it appears in a forecast, we also have some basic weather guides available to help you get to grips with some of the more complex to forecast weather patterns.

UK Weather Forecasts is a 100% free, it is a privately owned website and there are absolutely no plans to ever start charging for the forecasts delivered on this website, I’ve been fascinated by the weather since I was born so it was only natural that I went on to create a website to share my passion for weather with other like minded people.

If you have any suggestions or comments on how the site can be improved, please click here and fill out the form, I take all suggestions on board and many of them often get implemented onto the website if it’s possible.

Disclaimer

I can accept no responsibility for any loss or damage to any plans that were created based on the forecasts given, whilst accuracy is our number one aim the weather is a highly complex system and can change very quickly. I hope you’re able to find the forecasts useful to you in some way, if you have any questions please feel free to comment on either this or one of the Blog articles or you can head over to our Facebook page and ask a question there.

    Unfortunately, sailing forecasts aren’t my expertise so I can’t help you, although the BBC do have a very useful shipping forecast page.

    I hope that helps

    Hi Daniel – just wanted to say keep up the good work. I do enjoy getting your updates as you don’t simply “tell” – you “explain”. I had a very canny grandmother who could literally sniff the air and forecast the weather and jolly good she was too. I think I may have found her substitute!

    Hi Daniel,
    Its great to read about weather forecasting and meteorology from the point of view of an amateur and explained in such a simplified manner. As far as long term weather forecasting, I think http://www.wunderground.com/ provides best information about it.
    Keep up the good work!

    Cheers,
    Mark

    This blog is awesome. Not only is it interesting, its informative and very easy to read, and I found it when I was looking for a site that explains how snow is forecast. (I just love snow…I know sad). Keep it up

    Are we every going to get a summer ? April was lousy and if the weather forecast is accurate, May 2012 will be another cold, miserable month. We haven’t had a good summer for years ! Please cheer me up, make my day

      Hi Angela,

      Unfortunately, the Long Range forecasting models don’t look too promising for the summer at the moment, May does indeed look likely to continue the cool, showery theme and looking at the CFS Pressure Anomaly Charts, there’s no real sign of any real, sustained warmth to come this summer

      Whether they’ll be accurate or not is yet to be seen. One positive factor is that more often than not, cold, wet Aprils are followed by warmer summers.

    We’re told it’s the jet stream that causing a lousy summer. No idea I suppose if the jet stream will move to allow us at least an indian summer !

    Hi Daniel, Thanks for a very interesting site. I am part of a charity that provides 4×4 vehicles to assist various organisations during times of bad weather. Obviously weather forecasting is very important for us and we look to various sources of information. Your site provides a detailed, scientific and importantly non-melodramatic appraisal of the situation, which is exactly what we need. Many thanks for your efforts.

    Hi Daniel, Like yourself, I have had an interest in the weather since an early age. I love reading about it, seeing it and being ‘in it’. We are so lucky here in the UK to have such diverse and variable weather, and I wish some people could just sit back and appreciate it for what it is instead of moaning about it all the time. If only they knew how difficult it is to pin down forecasts in the UK, maybe they could cut everyone some slack. I find your information very interesting and informative, and look forward to your updates. I’m in the crowd hoping for some white stuff, so let’s see how it goes over the next few weeks. Thanks mate, Jack (in Rugby).

    Hi Daniel

    Having recently signed up to your regular updates I am writing to say thank you for introducing some common sense into the longer term forecasting. Over the past few weeks virtually all of the online “private” forecasters have been forecasting a severe winter with blizzards and the country being brought to a standstill.

    If the most recent Met office forecast for the first two weeks of December are to be believed we are in for our usual cool damp winter with a possibility of something more wintry later but certainly nowhere near what is being said elsewhere.

    I would like to say how impressed I am that you did not follow the crowd as they are certainly beginning to look extremely unprofessional and bordering on stupid.Well done and keep up the good work. ( I almost purchased some snow chains )
