  1. Apologies if it comes across like that. But it's no different than the people who delight in posting charts which show Nirvana and delight in getting loads of likes for their post and then disappear when it doesn't happen or there are no good charts to post. I don't mean to come across as one of those people who has a forecasting stone (you know the meme!), I'm a coldie at heart who rather optimistically bought a snow shovel this year and I've been around long enough to know that looking for potential too far in the distance is just going to end up in frustration for a lot of people. Anyway there still seems to be a bit of snow next week, just not quite what we were all hoping for. Oh well.
  2. It's like this every year. People keep looking into FI for cold weather, someone "knowledgeable" talks about a sausage or something and then people get excited up until the point that it doesn't actually happen. But people never learn and let this happen again and again and again but yet somehow people seem to keep their mythical status as almighty predictors of weather. It's great to talk about stuff in FI, but at least watch it get close enough to get reliable before getting too excited. That said you've not done yourself a favour making predictions out in FI... Anyway, back to waiting for some nicer charts to turn up in a more reliable timeframe...
  3. You make a good point, but it's also not about ignoring reality, if you want that then go on the Exactaweather facebook group!
  4. Someone can probably just delete my reply, sorry!
  5. So we might get up to 25-27 degrees IF we're lucky. Why do people seem to think that the max temp is the forecast temp for that period?
  6. And for balance, the min chart for the same time. Also, it’s predicting 30 for London on your chart, hardly widespread.

    If they’re non-commital, might that not be an indication that things are perhaps a touch up in the air?

    And how many times have the Met Office been right because they don’t change their forecast just because the models show a change over a few runs. The Met Office are where they are because they do a good job...

    Bah, the real money is to be made by generating hydroelectric power from the tears of people in the model thread.

    This is your fault knocker! ALl your negative vibes caused that shortwave.

    I would very much agree with this statement. They always seem to be a couple of degrees off a few days out. I miss the range of possible temps they used to give on their 5-10 day forecasts...

    If you want cold charts and aren’t bothered about whether they verify then I’ll send you a load of maps and some crayons? I come here to get an idea of what is likely to happen in the near to distant future.

    But it’s just so stupid how people get their hopes up multiple times every winter when it’s never that promising and then moan when it goes Pete Tong. People act as if the cautious people are causing warmer weather.
