The day label given represents the local day relative to the local time for the location you are looking at.
This time is corrected for local time zones and where possible for daylight saving times.
The wind direction we use on this page is the direction the wind is coming from, given in a 16 point compass format.
This refers to the sustained average wind speed, normally averaged over a period of 10 minutes for up to 3 hrs.
Temperature from our forecast perspective are fairly well defined, they are what we would expect to measure in a standard meteorological screen (in other words, shaded and well ventilated) at 2 metres above ground level.
The relative humidity is the percent of saturation humidity, generally calculated in relation to saturated vapour density.
The value given is a total predicted for the previous 3 hrs and includes the time of the forecast being looked at.
The total amount of cloud as a percentage is derived from looking at cloud cover throughout the atmosphere and estimating how these combine when looked at from the ground.
Here we try to capture the feel of the weather as an image – it will never be perfect but is useful for a quick overview.
When we measure for forecast air pressure we are normally doing this relative to a certain height and most commonly relative to Mean Sea Level.
