  1. Snow here in the Vale of Clwyd. IMG_2772.MOV
  2. A bit blowy up here today - nothing extraordinary. Rain an issue though.
  3. Brilliant! This takes me back 30 years to decoding weather faxes, pressure charts, sea ice obs, etc. from short wave transmissions using a hardware decoder and HFFAX software. Hours of fun!
  4. Surely cheaper to just set up a Wunderground account, link to your weather software and access via your phone from anywhere?
  5. Hi guys/gals, I know it's not that straightforward, given the combination of runs that go to make up the local forecast, but it would be useful to somehow see when it was last updated. It looks like if I hit the '16 Day Extra Detail' button, and it refreshes, that may tell me that the forecast has updated, but it's difficult to be certain how up to date the forecast actually is. Thanks.
  6. Thanks reef - I'll have a look into this when I get some time to spare.
  7. Hi reef, do you have a schematic or pics of your custom FARS setup?
  8. Do you use weather software on your PC or do you use your console as a standalone device? You should be able to retrieve the data if you use a PC, but I have no idea if you don't. Even if you have the optional data logger I doubt the data goes back that far. Sorry.
  9. GFS shows snow for an hour or two this evening for the North - other models vary. Very uncertain where the northern extent is.
  10. I'm glad it's just not me thinking this. Many folk have concluded that the surface effect of the December SSW event is behind us or that the cards fell wrong this time. I do not believe it has really started. The type and length of the event have few analogues so most models have really struggled with the 'work in progress' state of the atmosphere. Signs seem to be emerging that the cold EC46 view a couple of weeks ago may have been correct, albeit delayed like all other models. There'll be valuable learning available from this. Genuinely fascinating times, unique in my utterly unreliable recollection of weather stuff.
  11. I know it's the CFS, but this is a strong -NAO / Greenland blocking signal for week 3.
  12. There are plenty of words written about DSWs, I certainly don't distrust the science, but there will be very few analogues that have been built into the models - hence the model confusion. Agree with you about the outcome though!
  13. There are very few composite analogues available for DSWs; even SSWs only have a small number to factor into their physics. All the more reason to distrust lower level/surface NWP currently.
