One of my Reading classmates emailed me the other day, which was a pleasant surprise. He's with the UK Met Office, & said that UKMO is currently centralising its operations. He was writing during his shift, and ended off with :
"It's a quiet night because pressure is high. Just had some excitement because there is some noctilucent cloud outside - the first time I have ever seen any. It's very high cloud (mesospheric I think) which catches the sunlight long after the sun has gone down - right through the night even."
Well, wish I could see that.
He sent me one of his papers too. Title : NWP Grid Editing at the Met. Office
My mood : Pleased
