  1. Good chart, but sorry MWB, are those accumulated totals between now and 14/7? Not that low away from South coast, really...
  2. Quite. Today looked like an absolute stinker a week ago. Furthermore - I know this is is model output discussion but- it's interesting to note that apparently neither Meto or BBC are backing the apocalyptic scenario being painted by some on this site. The models are not at one. Professional forecasts suggest that those showing an extremely wet scenario do not represent the form horse. Nobody knows but I suggest that ark building is not yet required.
  3. Struck me that snorefest winters have been had before but rarely with such little cold chasing from models that have offered very little hope at all, so far. Even LRFs have proved good. Is this a sign of model improvement, I wonder?
  4. That's what they get from a UK or NW Europe High - movement of cold air south from Russia or Eastern Scandinavia. Part and parcel.
  5. Interesting run. Generally, my initial reaction would be to laugh and say this will be tomorrow's digital fish wrapper in 12 hours' time. Yet...at under T192 maybe not to be dismissed out of hand. And there have been hints to support it. Let's see whether any other runs support it. If not, then my initial reaction would seem right.
  6. *Voiceover*: "As in previous winters, the dice did not fall...." ?
  7. Hello fellow Roystonian. I currently have 36.8C. @Kirkcaldy Weather nominated us as the hotspot. I hate to disappoint that there is now no recognised station here, but I will do my best as a substitute. That might turn out to be our max. Generally, I would expect Cambridge to be slightly warmer than us as it is lower.
  8. Sorry, Mike, I'm probably being very dim, but it's just possible I'm not alone in not understanding these charts, but they seem interesting. Would you be kind enough to explain them to the idiots among us? Thanks.
  9. Since noticed. Never too late for bragging though. Except that someone else picked that figure also.
  10. Quite, and that's exactly what is shown on this temperature chart that someone posted earlier. 36°C at Heathrow and, er, 20°C, maybe only 17° on north Essex/ Suffolk coast! Incidentally, meto are saying 34° for southern counties later in week. Baffled as to why BBC persist with 25° maxes. Are they expecting a temperature inversion??!! Still, meto reassuring me I'm not going mad.
  11. Hi Rob I think that there are a couple of flaws here. Firstly, there are at least tentative signs that the part I have bolded may be wrong. Second, happy to be corrected, but it seems to me that on this forum everyone says Greenie high = southward forced jet = washout summer. True, we have seen that before, the classic being 2007. Yet, we have had HP in place in the region (Iceland too) throughout the spring and conditions, certainly in my location have been generally very benign. So I don't think it follows. Thirdly, don't really buy your opening sentence! It's not a lack of articulation, it's a lack of evidence, to my mind! Cheers, WB
