    Ok.....Go back and read my posts from 2,3 months back. I said repeatedly I expected a warm late spring and poss into June before a deterioration further in to summer. The posts are there somewhere...go find them. I can't be bothered arguing but just as some repeatedly said that a warm nino winter was odds on, I felt the same about summer coming off the back of such a strong nino. It was black and white for me. Just a shame you have to feel the need to ridicule those who happen to want to share their thoughts and take the time to at least try and explain why in even a simple fashion. Personally, (and some people really haven't grasped this), it makes little odds to me whether it's warm, cold, wet or dry. I merely say how I see it, yet some people tend to take offence to any prediction as if it were some personal attack to themselves. To make your argument even more devoid of any credibility, I predicted quite a good summer last year! So I don't always predict the same thing as some people would like to argue. It's not even like I enjoy backslapping...I wouldn't even bring up the fact I called it had it not been for people like you who seem to want to launch a 'but you got it wrong X amount of times' style attack at the mere hint of a forecast which goes against your personal weather preferences. I highly doubt you'd have said a dickie bird had I been calling for a 1976 re-run!

    Not posted in here for a while, as been lurking in the convective threads given the thunderiest June I can remember in my 40 years. But, my goodness, whatever happened to high pressure blocks in high summer that used to bring a week or a few weeks of fine settled weather? OK, I don't expect them every summer, but can't remember the last time we experienced them, recent summers seems to be dominated by cyclonic westerlies. The 00z extended EPS H500 mean showed a trough over the UK throughout to day 15, the current 12z GEFS H500 mean through to day 15 does, so expect the 12z EPS will do too. The weather is certainly reflecting the political mood of the country for now! But with 2 months of summer left and September, if you except the shorter days, plenty of time yet I guess...

    I'm just reporting it as I see it, don't think that's straw clutching.

    Thought you might like to see my tadders from two weeks ago - I expect they'll be hopping about now. I'm going to have a look at the weekend. The first one is in the main lake, and the other two are in the smaller overflow pond. I love the way they hang on to sticks and leaves floating in the water with their mouths.

    Not seeing it myself. Steepening lapse rates hooking in to the SW later in the afternoon, CAPE is meagre, high PWAT. I'd go for some heavy bursts of rain with maybe the odd rumble mixed in the heavier ppn. I'd like to be wrong, but I can't envisage anything severe?

    Just as an example to show how the Gefs 6z mean improves as we go further into July, here are the mean charts for this week and then further ahead and they do show a gradual improvement over time. I'm hoping I will have the opportunity to post some fantastic mean charts in the not too distant future! :- )

    Nice stroll in the Warwickshire countryside this morning. Locals laughing and smiling, and feeling very upbeat.

    There hasn't been a day with a max below 17°C, or a night with a min below 12°C or month, and I doubt there will be either now. For my location at least then it hasn't been that bad at all. Yes, a few rainy days but this is Britain, it's what happens, get used to it. I would hate to live in Spain, the same thing every day, boring. Variety and unpredictability is what the British weather is all about, and we should grasp it with both hands. The best thing about it is you never know what's around the corner. :-)

    No appreciable change with the ecm or the ext EPS this morning. We are still locked into the LP over the Pole, trough UK and ridging eastern Europe scenario in the 6-10 period so unsettled and cool. Still much the same in the ext. period.

    Looks like this summer is following the well-trodden path of the past few. The plume always forecast in 3-4 days time fails to materialise or gets batted into the Continent by yet another bloody trough.

    Feel free to grab this current rubbish weather if you like but I'd much rather grab days and days of clear blue skies, light winds and very warm /hot temperatures, after all it is summer! Yesterday was absolutely atrocious here and tomorrow is looking rubbish according to the models. One can only hope the models start improving soon.

    Think tomorrow afternoon/evening will be interesting, very active cold front moves through with frequent heavy showers/thunderstorms after moving through fairly quickly, will be interesting to see what occurs.

    The Gfs 6z op run was a vile trough fest and for a while I thought the 12z would be equally foul but later in Fi high pressure builds in and brings summery weather, especially to southern areas. :-)

    Are you serious? I've never actually heard you predict a warm summer...and I'm pretty sure you were a long way wide of the mark regarding winter. If you predict something enough, you will eventually be right.

    Quite a potent storm about 5 miles away about 1/2 hour ago over SE London with a lot of fast rising motion in the updraft area and was spitting out fairly frequent CGs

    12z is another horror show all round. I think everyone better should look away for a few days, because this is about as bad as it gets.

    Hi folks Just my thoughts on these lists I know it would be difficult and time consuming but often it is not just the abreviation anyone learning wants i.e P.V = Polar Voretx ,but what is the polar vortex? there is several others down the line that really are not self explanetary Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this and it is very informative thanks

    Don't do that: just treat it like a Wiki and be prepared to be corrected. I often remind my clients that it is easier to criticise than to build. Hats off to the builders!
