  1. Meanwhile, how long before those of us along the south coasts of Dorset and Hampshire are struck from the forum for having nothing to contribute. Now the TOD and COS have fallen, what about us as the new reigning champions of storm nothingness, perhaps the Coastal Region of Absolute Patheticness?
  2. Meanwhile, in a spectacular development in Portsmouth...... The sun's gone in
  3. Indeed! Well put sir. The problem is everyone has their own weather "god". It could be the PV, northern jet arm, AH, phasing systems, MJO, AO, Teleconnections etc. Either way, as a community, if we were all to work together the discussions and leaning (and probably resultant forecasts) from this site would be much enhanced. The use of provocative language (such as tepid, toothless, blink and you'll miss it etc) is also pretty tiresome as is the relentless imbyism. Are we not, as scientists, supposed to be objective, not subjective? Nick
  4. fully agree with this. Winter on the South Coast is Jan, Feb, march. In December warm channel waters are too moderating. Good news, we're only 1 week into winter.
  5. happy new year, and thanks to GP, IF, FROSTY, SM,NS, GTLTW, KNOCKER, KARYO, CATACOL, SS, LEGRITTER, BLIZZARD, FEB, et al and any others I've obviously missed for your continuing input. Cheers
  6. It's not necessarily a computational problem since modern computers can crunch mind boggling quantities of data. I imagine it's more of a data assimilation problem, It's just not possible to record every possible variable in the system.
  7. Merry xmas to all. I think with the amount of sprouts about to be eaten, there is also a decent chance of some renewed WAA heading up from southern England.
  8. mmmmmm...... that's a paradox. How do I now like your post??
  9. Welcome to the forum Flealess. I take it that you've done well in the last couple of days
  10. Is that a 1020 I see. What software do you use for time lapse? And to stay on topic... clearing up now... seems to have fizzled out right over me.
  11. More lightning in the last hour then in total for the last 3 weeks
  12. Very disappointing in all..... nearly as bad as the Great 'puff of wind' on St Judes last year. Moderate rain and 1 distant CC lightning flash.
  13. It requires a long period groundswell. 13th Feb 1979 was an extreme example..... particularly as there was no wind at all (you're too young for that one!). The length of time between successive swells was 18 seconds + and with the amount of water being moved with each 'long period' wave it completely dismantled Chesil beach.
  14. Really depends on what weather station you have. Most of the range have an option for changing between metric and imperial measurements, (pressure readings, rainfall, wind speed/force etc). This can often be done on the 'base' station or via software installed on your computer. What model have you got?
