  1. Is it possible to have a dew point the same or very near the actual temperature? plus how high can the dew point get before it inhibits the actual temperature?

      And when T = DP, cloud/fog forms.

      Okay.. but I don't think he lives up in the atmosphere, so probably not relevant.. lol

      Actually air produced in laboratory conditions can reach an RH of 800% before droplets form spontaneously. No aerosols

  2. How is pollen forecasted?

    1. Paul


      There are pollen stations around the country which measure the pollen levels. This combined with knowledge of pollen patterns, along with weather data is then used to make forecasts.

      I remember when this used to be shown daily on the weather forecasts. These days the forecasts are so simple and dumbed down, its such a shame.

      Pollen data this year is a fairly complicated affair (commercially) which is possibly why the BBC aren't showing the forecasts much.

  8. its weather like we are having that makes me dislike our climate. its litearlly rained 9/10 days since the begining of april, I know we need it but damn.

      The UK climate is overrated.

  9. hopefully the fact that we didn't have a cold winter will allow those cells over france to stay together over the relatively warm channel.

    1. 95 Degrees

      95 Degrees

      I hope so, I miss the storms of the 90s/early 00s when they made it across.

  10. Had a shower with a little bit of hail mixed in but thats it in the desert of Hertfordshire.

      You want lots of snow EVERY winter? I sometimes miss the really windy weather and powerful Atlantic convective gust-fronts, etc.

      The lack of sunshine is the biggest problem. Most people are severely deficient in Vitamin D, particularly in winter.

    4. 95 Degrees

      95 Degrees

      Oceanic climates are better further south, where there is more heat involved but still variable, British weather is mostly the same countrywide and 30C in summer isn't a heatwave, nowhere had even even reached 40C so temperatures aren't varied enough, and t-storms are better south mixed with contiental air, UV index's ain't varied either rarely going above 7 and patterns stick for weeks on end before another one comes along rather than day to day changes like people go on abou...
