    Can't understand why people post from the Meteociel site, when in actual fact the wetterzentrale charts are the most correct ones. Baffling.

    Well temperatures are still way way below average. It should be about 15C down here this time of year yet we are still struggling to reach double figures. I am looking forward to the approaching milder weather, the weekend coming and afterwards could see the first 20C of the year finally

    If I can turn the heating down further (or even off) then any change to milder/warmer conditions (even if wet) is fine by me.

    Looks today is the last dry settled day/spell for a while, some drizzle and light rain spreading from the south tomorrow then becoming increasingly unsettled as we go through the week with spells of heavy rain and strong winds, turning milder too. Light rain/drizzle moving in tomorrow then some heavier stuff Tuesday into Wednesday Then a deep trough moves across us later Wednesday-Thursday with heavy rain and strong winds for all. Things should then settle down for a while under a ridge, then the main 3 models agree on another low bringing strong winds and heavy rain on the weekend/early next week, especially the ECM with a unusually deep cyclone for this time of year, more like a November chart, UKMO looks to be going similar while the GFS delays the next system until late Sunday/Monday so a decent weekend here. Perhaps turning increasingly mild/warm even as we drag up a SWly/Sly airmass by the weekend. Should put them pesky grass fires out, lots of them around here lately.

    A man goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having a nightmare - the man wakes him and asks his son if he is OK? The son replies he is scared because he dreamt that Auntie Susie had died. The father assures the son that Auntie Susie is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, Auntie Susie dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare - the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamt that granddaddy had died. The father assures the son that granddaddy is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, granddaddy dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare - the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamt that daddy had died. The father assures the son that he is OK and sends the boy to bed. The man goes to bed but cannot sleep because he is so terrified. The next day, the man is scared for his life- he is sure is going to die. After dressing he drives very cautiously to work fearful of a collision. He doesn't eat lunch because he is scared of food poisoning. He avoids everyone for he is sure he will somehow be killed. He jumps at every noise, starts at every movement and hides under his desk. Upon walking in his front door at the end of the day, he finds his wife. "Good God, Dear," he proclaims, "I've just had the worst day of my entire life!" She responds, "You think your day was bad, the milkman dropped dead on the doorstep this morning."

    4 Husbands The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she answered. "Interesting," the newsman thought. He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, and a preacher when in her 60's, and now - in her 80's - a funeral director. The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers. (Wait for it) She smiled and explained, "I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."

    I think it's mainly an issue for North Sea coastal areas whenever we get synoptic setups that are often associated with low cloud from the North Sea, but yes, I don't think the low SSTs are generally as big a stumbling block as some are fearing. I remember that in Tyneside the summer of 1996 got hot at times (it got to 27C around the 21st July, and hit 30C on the 18th August), following a cold winter and spring, and there was a fine May there in 2001 following frequent cold weather from January-April, and that region of the UK is particularly prone to "haar" during late spring and summer. 1975 was a particularly good example of a year with a cold spring followed by a hot summer.

    25 % loss of wheat expected on top of the very poor harvest last year , due to wet summer and colder spring, if this change of climate carries on for a few more years there will be disastrous consequences for us all, relying on imports, prices will go through he roof, I thing some need to realise we need warmth at the right times for our food chain. Even imports are not immune from extreme and unusal climate conditions. Food rationing in the future? I think coldies who want extreme cold for most of the year should think about that, or get to the back of the queue when the rationing starts

    For me it shows how unstable our weather has been recently, two very cold yearly periods and in the middle one of the warmest.

    Last summer did have some warmer days after mid July but with a year max of 26.8c there were absolutely no hot days at all (really 'hot' is 28c or above). August did save the summer and in the garden things actually got growing again. Sadly it was too late for long season crops (peppers) which then didn't start ripening till late Sept by which time sunlight is scant.

    The point is that the energy released was miniscule compared to the atmospheric energy fluxes that are occurring continually. Furthermore, the nature of the energy release took place in a matter of seconds with dissipation as light and soundwaves from between seconds to a few hours (infrasound waves were recorded in Antarctica) meaning that it didn't represent a long term affect on the atmosphere. It's not a matter of ruling it out, it's looking at the evidence and balance of probability as far as it is known rather than just going on a hunch.

    Yes it would be awful if the minimum suddenly dipped to something almost as low as it was 20 years ago Not least because we'd have endless posts about how it must be an irreversible process and the planet must be dooomed.
