  1. It's odd because as the models have seemingly increased the risk of rain over the next few days the met office forecast for my area has reduced the risk. Now showing a 60% risk tonight and much less over the following three days. I really want some rain so I'm hoping the GFS is right.
  2. A reasonable amount for my location but I suspect the reality will be different. Take the GFS precipitation charts for this afternoon which have showed some rain for a number of runs in a row. The reality is it's dry as a bone. A quick question on the ECM/ukmo. I have no idea how to judge how wet or dry a run might be given the range of charts on NW/Wetter. Obviously if we have a big low moving in it's obvious but in high/slack pressure scenarios has anyone any tips? Thanks in advance - just trying to learn.
  3. Yuk I hate this hot and humid weather, it's awful. Not much I can do about it though! What is it looking like in terms of precipitation on the ECM and UKMO? Is there any chance of some thunderstorms?

    Agreed. It's not a good outlook for arable farmers. Things are starting to look pretty desperate. I do love the sunshine but everything is starting to look jaded, we could really do with a day or two of rain.

    I really hate it when all the beautiful green countryside turns brown, especially so early in the Summer. I'd love to see some rain in the outlook Often hot weather leads to thunderstorms, what kind of synoptics would we need for that to happen? At the moment it just looks dry dry dry.

    Still hardly any rain in the model output for neck of the woods. It really has been a exceptionally dry few weeks. I keep hoping for a day of downpours but aside from Saturday which looks hit and miss the outlook is dry.
  7. Good we're three weeks into Spring! It's been a very good Winter but I've really had enough of cold now. I want to get in the garden and feel some sunshine and warmth. Unfortunately not much of that on show in the models either - until 360hrs anyway

    Some big showers incoming now. Hopefully right in the firing line for a bit at least. Been very hit and miss so far here.

    Lots of hills that's the trouble. The roads haven't been gritted so it's just impossible to get out. Really didn't expect it! Still snowing here too.

    Last week it took me an hour to get to Meanwood from Tinshill before I had to turn back. This morning I couldn't even get out of my street!

    This cold spell is costing me a fortune in bird food! They really need it though, a spell like this is very tough for wildlife.

    Still snowing moderately here and when the wind gusts it's almost whiteout conditions. This powder snow is amazing. Beats chasing an inch of wet snow in -5 NW'ly uppers that's for sure .

    Looks promising to me for another round of showers pretty much across Yorkshire - apart from a small gap around Hedon. A bit of a wait now though.
