  1. For somebody under severe drought restrictions, the mind boggles at the inches of water about to fall on Texas!

      I am in the Lot et Garonne - on a map of France, half way between Bergerac and Agen.

      Oops - a malfunction of the image saving device. Latest run of ECM has even higher totals.:help:






  2. For any weather historians, Meteo France have produced a great archive of historical storms -          from 18th century - to present day.

  3. Taymyr theory tick.png Right the way through sea level to Z100 ... all through October.

    SAI theory tick.png Biggest sub 60 degrees north anomaly for decades.

    Kara/Barents low ice tick.png Pretty much record breaking low anomalies there.

    OPI tick.png If it had still been around it would have been very negative. I read the original paper and have a very rough idea of how it was arrived at.

    Solar activity in decline tick.png A bit to go yet but no major bursts of geomag to go off the rails.

    Is Europe cold and going to continue cold, as per the above theories. tick.png

    Is it coming to the UK - I'll put that tick in later. :D

      Lol, one step at a time... I've just dug my Canadian (-40C capable) thermals out of the attic in anticipation of this one. :cold::help::rofl:

  4. A very unusual sub-tropical depression in the Bay of Biscay.


    From Google translate.

    Satellite Image METEOSAT10 on 15/09/2016 at 12:30 UTC: this is a particularly remarkable phenomenon that is taking place in the Bay of Biscay. Depression that wraps has subtropical characteristics, namely a warm heart dominated by cold air at high altitudes. This causes a convective activity locally and stormy near the center of the depression, which is typical of tropical or subtropical process. Other convective clouds are present over a wide band from Britain to the Balkans.

      @weirpig She has been named Stephanie - she will drift SSE and be broken up over the Pyrenees - similar fate to many of the tropical storms when they hit the mounains of the Caribbean islands. There's a sting in the 'tail' for some tomorrow morning. :D

      No real signs of its activity here in Ibiza. Just a drop in temperature. Mostly fine and sunny. Note the SWly jet is quite strong on its southerly flank,that's going by the speed of the cirrus we have here. Not bad here but you can tell the maritime influence compared to the start of the week when we had a very hot flow out of Africa.
