  1. Sunday's storm appears to be tracking further south, with Suffolk/Essex bearing the brunt albeit somewhat weaker than some of the output over the past few days. The high-res WRF on Sunday evening:
  2. Pub run looks particularly intense at T72 which is high tide too.
  3. The Icon 12z still makes very little of Sunday's storm: Friday morning's storm is a nasty little surprise though:
  4. Is this the worst performance in a county match ever? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/scorecard/ECKO43237
  5. Meanwhile, the ICON 6z has virtually no cyclogenesis whatsoever:
  6. It's times like this that it's frustrating we can't see anything smaller than the 24hr steps of the ECM and UKMO. The crucial period IMBY is T114 as that is 8pm on Sunday and high tide. There is still huge variation in the GEFS: https://www.meteociel.fr/cartes_obs/gens_panel.php?modele=0&mode=1&ech=114 Indeed, some perturbs have no storm at all. A significant number though, like the op and control, have the storm centre right off the coast of East Anglia, the worst possible place. I'm not sure we are quite in 1953 territory, because that one formed south of Iceland and tracked slowly down the east coast which presumably enhanced the tidal surge. It still looks bad though.
  7. Was wondering why Mario Kart was trending on Twitter.

    Oh dear.

      His brother Dust is well worth a read.

  8. Old Hunstanton will be best, I think. You can stand on the clifftops and get the full vista.
  9. Milankovitch cycles. There is a very high correlation between the rate of change of global ice volume and the variations in insolation owing to Milankovitch cycles (orbital variations of the Earth). http://courses.washington.edu/pcc589/2009/readings/Roe.pdf
  10. Nope, urban myth. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/bumblebees-cant-fly/
  11. Not sure about that: https://climate.nasa.gov/climate_resources/24/graphic-the-relentless-rise-of-carbon-dioxide/ There is clearly a cycle though on the scale of 10s of thousands of years. I assume this is because of CO2 becoming sequestered in ice during the ice age epochs caused by the orbital variations of the Earth (Milankovitch cycles).
  12. Andrej (@Recretos) has shown that the GFS/GEFS have a bias toward underestimating strat zonal wind speeds. The CFS possibly too.

    I know there's a few Boro fans on here, so thought you'd appreciate some highlights.
