Welcome to the Essex Weather Centre
At the Essex Weather Centre we deliver comprehensive forecasts and weather warnings specifically for the people of Essex. Our team gather all of the latest data from weather stations on land and sea, satellites, radar and computer models so that we can produce the best possible forecast.
Detailed, unbiased weather forecasts are available on our web site and on local and community radio stations across Essex. Updated twice daily, we provide coverage of 40 towns using high resolution output from both the Met Office and European (ECMWF) computer model. In fact, we are one of only three web sites in the United Kingdom using this method for public weather forecasting.
