    Never want to boast, but for a beginner (noob) experimental forecaster like myself this was a well made forecast!

    After tomorrow, looks like quietening down for a bit convective risk wise. So browsed the 18z in search of a gem (as you do)... Day has temps in the mid-20s and dew points to 20C... Yeah, that would be a juicy atmosphere indeed. Very humid. Jet/shear absent, but 2500 j/kg of MLCAPE and high moisture would guarantee strong storms with large hail. Only a week Sunday as well...

    Seeing as the BOE has been mentioned with their input. The former Governer Mervyn King said one month ago. Quote. "The one size fits all economies of the EU was doomed for failure from the beginning. Its a disaster that will be totally dominated by Germany. It will soon be game over for the grand Euro project." Believe who you want.

    A lot of toasty runs appearing for next weekend - this morning's are not the first. Long way off but one to watch:

    Looking at the anomalies this morning there is some indication of it getting warmer and more settled towards the end of the month although of course it's nowhere near a done deal. In the nearer 6-10 time frame not bad agreement with troughs western Atlantic and Scandinavia/eastern Europe with the Azores HP nudging in from the south west. In a nutshell during this period we lose the current patter as the trough moves east and HP builds from the SW. This is but transitory as the eastward movement continues with the trough out west moving to mid Atlantic. This introduces a south westerly upper flow and portends some wet and windy weather, particularly to the north and west. But this may well be short lived as the indications are, at the moment, that the trough will weaken and for heights to build in the eastern Atlantic. Thus more settled weather and temps above average.

    Judging by Sat24; we can see cumulus growing over central areas, as these move SW I expect these to grow into some storms!

    Interesting to see the pressure rise just before it, it's not even 1hPa, but as it reads in tenths of an hPa, you can spot the small differences. Not far off the money, them charts..

    Perfect weather day to be fair. The sun came out, pushed the temp up to 23.7°C - making it the warmest day of the year, and then a nice shower with some T&L in the late afternoon, oh and a good watering for the garden.

    I think the problem is the lack of a buffer in terms of growth. If the UK was booming then you might be able to ride out the storm. If the UK was leaving and then had to deal with just two or three countries in terms of trade it would be much easier. As it is the majority of EU countries do not have a trade surplus with the UK, all 27 remaining EU countries need to sign off on any trade deal and the UK also has to re-negotiate another 50 deals it has with non EU countries. These things take time, there are no quick fixes here. In the mean time businesses will put off investment decisions till they're sure of what the state of play will be.

    Well to be fair it aint wrong till summer is over. I suppose if they were forecasting 100 days of heatwave like the Express might do then its outrageous. Saying limited heat is sitting on the fence nicely for a summer forecast for the UK.

    Hi Dave, Just a question but can someone explain the racist posts on this forum I wasn't on that much at the beginning of the week so I dare say I missed them. and obviously if there were than that is unacceptable and memebrs should be banned.

    I think the difference is here that as 'remainer's' we do look at both sides of the argument and we are quite prepared to admit that the EU is not perfect, as I have done frequently but on the other hand I cannot recall any of the 'outer's' admitting to any flaws in their argument and let's face it, nothing can be that perfect. Not sure who this 'someone whom I believe is really far more up to CURRENT speed on security and intelligence issues than the Dame or any ex for that matter' unless you are referring to the lady MP on the intelligence committee and unless one is working professionally in the security services I cannot see how they can be so currently up to speed on these matters because of the very nature of the work. If it is somebody else please let the rest of us in on the secret. It's not just that fact that you cherry pick the items to support your arguments, here I am speaking about all the outers, not just you, but many points which we raise as remainers are totally ignored and to be quite honest if you were interested in the debate I would have expected some response. If on the other hand you are totally engrossed in your own viewpoint to the exclusion of everything else then perhaps I can understand why this should be the case. The other thing I find difficulty in understanding is that by virtue of your employment I take it that you are a caring person, yet a Brexit is likely to put 1,000's, if not more out of work and as such it is bound to wreck lives and cause some to lose their homes because they can no longer afford the mortgage but you are still keen to head along this route despite these possible repercussions.

    Not really Mike, there are enough points of view on here to cover both sides of the fence, like it or not. Dearlove's view is actually backing the opinion taken by someone whom I believe is really far more up to CURRENT speed on security and intelligence issues than the Dame or any ex for that matter Can I also just reiterate the view of others on here that you also pick the argument and research to suit your remain point of view and I guess as fervent inner theres not much wrong to finding facts to support your point of view, so please don't criticise others for doing the same thing - what is good for the goose is good for the gander as they say. To be completely honest I've promised myself almost every day to withdraw from commenting on posts put on here as nothing will change my view and I spend far too much time on here when I should really be doing other more timely things (like now I should be putting the shopping up); unfortunately some people have really without doubt pressed my buttons at times and I broke my resolve to keep quiet.......this lady aint for changing her view and curiously we had a discussion at work this afternoon when we seemed to discover that no one has actually spoken to anyone else who is going to vote to remain in the EU....

    Snowycat, first of all I refer you to the first two posts above, the first of which brings forward the date to 2013 in respect of the intelligence services, then the second one which refers the Home and Foreign Secretaries who are likely to have up to date knowledge. Secondly I would suggest that the Dame in question is likely to a profound knowledge of the Official Secrets Act and likely to know exactly what she can and cannot release into the public domain. Another point is that I am having difficulty in reconciling these two posts of yours: Well, another side here.....the key being we provide more intelligence information to europe than we receive. This was a view reinforced by a lady MP earlier this week, whose name escapes me. She was responding to desperate dans scaremongering about WW3 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3506991/UK-safer-Europe-says-former-MI6-chief-Sir-Richard-Dearlove-suggests-Brexit-make-easier-deport-terrorists.htm Who, I think we agree left in 2004, then: Usual clap trap rubbish, ....her ministerial status doesn't really matter - she currently serves on the intelligence and security committee and as such would be all to aware of all the confidential and classified information available in the current - the Dames long gone doing her garden no doubt and would not be privy to up to date current or pertinent information around intelligence or security but rather what she knew back then. This being the Dame who left in 2007. It seems you quite happy to quote Sir Richard Dearlove who left in 2004 but who's opinions being an outer, you agreed with, yet chose to disqualify the opinion of Dame because who did not have up to date knowledge. And I take it you are ignoring the more recent people altogether. (first post shown) So is it possible here that you are choosing the argument which suit your own purpose rather than considering the arguments on both sides of the fence?

    As Dave mentioned, GPS tracking is up already, with the stream on later. The new GPS map for the team went live yesterday, and now allows you to view the SPC outlooks, watches/warnings and mesoscale discussions on it (along with the radar). Just click the markers on the outlooks/warning boxes etc for more info on them. http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=chaselive;sess=

    They don't have to give me any specific details to express their general concerns. Of course you can choose who to believe or not and given your bias I'm not surprised. But someone who works in intelligence carries more weight than anyone on here on that matter.
