  1. Guys I am flying to France tomorrow and hopefully back to London before the big storms arrive. So if it's the biggest since the 1990s, it's because I am airborne lol.

      I went to Le Touquet for the night.  I was the pilot. I flew in a small aircraft ?  Flew back this afternoon.

  2. They say curiosity killed the cat.  But I am curious to think how polar opposite this Summer is? In fact, for me it feels very British. Rather than "Climate change".

      That's why I think we will get heat, but nothing on the scale of last year. Probably a traditional late 90s style summer with plenty of rain.

  3. I would prefer a winter blast end of Jan and February and any warm spell to last from March till August ;) 

  4. Meanwhile, I'm going to Phoenix a week on Monday. Getting close to 50c next week...

  5. Umm.... it is a bank holiday weekend right? Did someone forget to given the weather a memo for our usual dose of constant rain for once.

  6. How can one calculate what the temperature would be Mid/Late July in this airflow?

      Thanks guys! So probably low 30's but nothing notably exceptional (except this time of year?).  Does the 850-1000 thickness of this time of year get moderated with the sea temperatures too?

  10. First meteorologist job application sent off, probably an optimistic one but good to get a foot in the door!

  11. Arrived safely in Malaga on Sunday. Now on day three and I'm already regretting the return flight. The flight here had some turbulence which really scared me, home on Sunday.

  12. Might sound melodramatic but the heat in London is searing! Slightly gobsmacked only a few locations are measuring near 30C (notably Heathrow, Charlwood and Gravesend)....feels hotter IMO and its not even that humid!! Imagine what higher humidity would be like....woof!!!

  13. My bedroom is sitting at 30*C, just slightly dropped to 29*C... damn!!

      I take it upstairs is always going to be warmer as warm parcels of air rise??

  15. Can't believe I had 11 snowfalls this year. festering amazing!! 12 from December - March 2013.

    1. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      Interestingly only two of those days did it settle. Still Nov/Dec 2013 for more snow to fall, can't wait...

  16. Big day tomorrow, I'll be under the surgeons knife for what will be the world first knee replacement with an extensor mechanism allograft using my hamstrings. A bit of mouthful I know.

  17. Was that Thunder in London?? Or a Eurofighter... was very loud/long and can't see anything that would warrant that amount of thunder except a jet being scrambled through the sound barrier??

    1. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      It's trending on Twitter now. That's festering amazing, was like 20-25 seconds in length of just thunder... lol!

  20. GFS going for -10*C for Central London this Sunday Morning. Incredible if true, but then saying that if Heavy Snowfall does go ahead those temperatures would be expected right??

    1. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      Apparently, -18C in 17th century. But most recent was -10.6*C

    1. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      I think they all wrong. The stratosphere and background conditions surely don't permit mild murk??
