  1. The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion

    A252.. BBC have just broadcast that we in the central Midlands early tomorrow may catch a Cheshire gap shower or 2. With the lower o/n temps we may just catch a few flakes as far as Brum. I must admit when I saw your chart above I thought it looked ideal for Stoke and Cannock to get a few flakes.? Today....Beautiful azure blue skies with no clouds in sight, Current temps 6.5C, but the dew point is already at -1.0C, and the temp is sliding at 14:30. MIA.

    BleakMidwinter.. I too saw the same effect here in sunny Solihull as a light shower passed through. There was also a 'vivid' multiple rainbow at the time. MIA
  3. Luke... My guess would be 1961.... December MIA Edit Just seen Steve's response....

    Just got back in from a days walking in Knowle along the canal. It was lovely but quite cool and we all had gloves. headgear. cagoules, on. Finished up at the 'Ellora' for a buffet curry. It was nice in the sun, but out it was chilly. Let's hope for a snowy winter this year. It is 4.4C here now. MIA

    Another lovely day. Started off with a heavy ground frost after a night of variable cloud. Min temp 0.5C Then became quite cloudy followed by clear blue skies, and now a few scattered nimbus clouds around from the WNW/NW.. Temp about max now at 7C MIA
  7. Actually he was interviewed by the evening Standard and was reported nationally by the Independent . MIA

    Very interesting PM... I have heard of this place, but not been to it. sounds very spooky. MIA

    Well the weekend is here.... Its been raining and drizzling steadily for the last 2-3 hours. 8.7mm so far. Here was me hoping to enjoy a sunny cold morning on the golf course. At least the cold bit was correct. It is still cold here with a temperature of 6 C. MIA

    Following yesterdays mid day crud and cloud the sky cleared and temperatures have plunged around here. I recorded a minimum of -2.2C overnight (this seasons coldest so far) and it is still crisp this morning with some cloud building overhead. Looking like a reasonable weekend for outdoor activities. MIA
  11. Yep C.. This chart demonstrates what would happen if (heaven forbid) the GFS is misreading the energy leaving the US and blowing up the lows too much. We all know that the GFS is not immune from these characteristics. MIA
  12. Well it has gone over half way to meet the GFS. It has lost the trough over the UK from the SW. It is showing the start of ridging up to to the NW. It shows a shortwave over Iceland ready to dive SE. Its a good enough start.... MIA

    Yep, I use my old fridge freezer ('E' power rating). It costs me a fortune in power bills. Still believe it is worth it. MIA
  14. Its a reference to Knocker's pet (a squirrel - Sydney) who comes out when it starts to get mild in autumn and winter. Unfortunately he has not had a good sleep for three or four years now!! MIA
