  1. More rubbish from the 6.30pm ITV News with Mary Nightingale...seems like it's becoming a theme with them to close it with an article about the weather with a statement which is generally incorrect. Talking about the impending warm Easter she said 'after the long cold winter' - whaaatttt!?! and then waffled on about how brits will generally be staying in this country rather than travelling abroad to get a tan but after this then produced a satellite image of the UK bathed in sun but not now but back in February when it just happened to be very mild...talk about contradicting themselves!!!...and I thought the Beeb was bad.
  2. Weather practically always seems to come in from the east (of varying degrees) in April of recent years...yes we've had a consistently chilly one from the north east the last week or so (but bear in mind the CET anomaly so far is slap bag on average, so cold? no) but looks like it's now switching to a fairly warm south easterly which by and large happened last year for a longer period with an anomaly of +2.3c and a ridiculous high of 29.1c at St James Park, London. Welcome global warming...
  3. What a pathetic post...why on the course? okay maybe understand why you dislike him as a person in what happened in his personal life a number of years back (temporarily) which led to the break up of his marriage, do you or anyone know him to cast such aspersions?
  4. Sad sad times for the once mighty Ipswich Town, Sir Alf and Bobby will be turning in their graves!
  5. Fantastic for the world of golf...never thought he'd win a major again after the state he was in with his injuries/personal life etc a few years back. 15 majors now, a true great in the game!...feel for Francesco though, between the second round and up to the final 9 holes of today felt he was the most solid golfer out there, but golf is a cruel game.
  6. Hi Tom, I'm an avid golfer (play off 9)...I personally would love to see Woods win it but personally can't see it happening but it would be great for Golf and one of the big all time come backs in sport, but for me I can see a tussle between Molinari (whose game has been close on robotic particularly his shortish putting) and Koepka unless some slightly off the pace player comes storming in with a low round. Weather conditions look different today for the final round so scoring will be somewhat higher than yesterday with breezier conditions and possible rain and T-Storms coming in from the west...and who knows a tornado (had plenty in Alabama over the last few hours).
  7. I wouldn't bet on it becoming wetter the Atlantic has gone completely AWOL again as per this time last year...
  8. ECM throwing up prime winter synoptics for cold...if only it wasn't April!, now there's a surprise!
  9. 8c here a few moments ago and grey...I thought this weekend was meant to be warmer!!
  10. Just saw the end of the ITV 6.30 news and they finished with a few scenes of the current 'wintry' weather and before this Mary Nightingale said and to quote her 'and after one of the mildest winters on record' - whhaaaaattttttttt!?! do the media only earmark what happened in a winter on how it finished? the previous winter after the 'beast from the east' I remember quite a few quotes saying it being a cold winter...laughable!
  11. Fairly pleasant out there when the sun comes out as there is no wind...possibility a few showers this afternoon but nothing untoward for early April unlike the BBC has been saying the last day or so with the over exaggerating (but nothing new there).
  12. Signs already that the Atlantic is packing it in (same as last year when we had a Scandy high but with more of a south easterly to it)...question is will it be as dry as last spring?
  13. Strange how the CET didn't go up after yesterday!...a warm day here followed by a relatively mild night, another mild month to add to the many.
  14. ?...not sure about that, felt quite mild even in the wind, sunny here but the continuous wind is getting on my nads now!
  15. This wind is more continuous than that winter of 2013/14 (which arguably was one of the longest winters I can remember, for all the wrong reasons)...yes there were wind storms and copious rainfall but that was in the winter months not early spring and after a fortnight or so of calm warm February weather - that's what's making it annoying presently - if this was either October or November then more par for the course!
