    Whether or not the warning was fair. Serena could have been professional about it and not throw a tantrum and ruin the greatest moment of a young woman's career so far. That said she has form for this behaviour. From those professionals who have been defending her, they really need to take the politics out of the equation and publically condemn her behaviour. There might be inconsistency regarding the enforcement of this rule which could be looked at but in the end if you don't break the rules then you won't get punished. It is as simple as at, no gender or race cards are needed to be played here. I really do feel for Osaka here, she played fantastically and had a true highlight of her life robbed essentially by a woman was clearly gettig frustrated by a mixture of being outplayed and being unable to find the level of form she had during the previous rounds.
  2. It may end up okay in the end, that low allows the jetstream to push east acrosd the north of the UK and into Scandinavia so by week 2 we now are looking at a strong area of high pressure centred over northern france and southern England so possibly a chance of warmer conditions developing than probably possible under a slack easterly feed which looked most likely a couple of days ago. Still a slightly bizarre set up developing late this coming week.

    A high of 15c before the rain appeared. A truly vile summers day.

    At least it has been dry today so the weather is at least usable. Tomorrow however looks to be a washout, a shame for the tourist industry given it is the biggest weekend of the year. Though I guess we should be used to this even if we have dodged bad weather on every other bank holiday weekend this year.
  5. Worth noting the ECM op is not supported by the ensembles. So at the moment the operational looks to be an outlier though of course at 7 days out it will be difficult to pin down a single system moving through the no other output seems to suggest that a trough will move east through the UK next weekend with the model outlook favouring the jetstream moving northwards later this week and sitting over or just north of Scotland so settled weather is favoured though the level of warmth remains to be seen. ECM ens GEFs Slight differences in the position of the high and of course this would affect the temperatures seen but settled weather is favoured for week two after a changeable week ahead.
  6. This morning's run is certainly more believable than the "how many cut off lows can we stick over Europe at once" output of yesterday. Still at that timeframe you would suspect the pattern is probably too far north. The gfs is flatter but still sees high pressure driftung across from time to time with rainfall falling off after the bank holiday weekend. As for the weekend itself, given the excellent conditions we have seen on previous bank holidays this year, this one looks more typical, cool and fairly wet which is a shame.

    The rain cleared here just after breakfast. Not too bad with quite a bit of sunshine. It does feel quite chilly though at just 18c.
  8. 14.9c and 52mm A fairly dry and warm month, in the end the conditions will either revolve around settled conditions or more zonal set up.

    A cloud spell mid morning and then back to good sunny spells.

    Best day since the end of the heatwave. The drier airmass over the continent has drifted far enough north to influence most of the region. A high of 26c with the humidity dropping below 50% for the first time in days.

    A much sunnier day compared to previous efforts. Up to 25c and it still feels humid.

    Ummm...... it was warm outside but aside from that the weather has been blander than dry toast.

    The sun has broken through a little bit now. Hopefully this will raise the temperatures a little bit.
