    Any extremes
  1. Heavy snow in South Oxfordshire. 5cm settled and more to come. The cat is refusing to go out and is growling at the snow
  2. I think it is 200hPa velocity potential anomalies. WTF that is, I don't know. If someone out there can please explain...

    When t takes you all night to do what you used to do all night
  4. Following on from a post in Model Output yesterday about the price of soup, I checked at our local Tesco's yesterday and Heinz soup is definately down to 50p/tin. There were 3 people in the soup aisle yesterday lunchtime. Today the soup is still 50p/tin and there were 8 people in the soup aisle. Based on this information (using my handy Daily Express Snowmageddon/Doomsday Calculator) we must be in for the harshest wintry spell in at least living memory or this winter. I will keep on collecting data and start building a computer model showing the SPI (Soup Price Index) and I hope the results can be included in the model outputs forum.

    RIP Ian you were instrumental in getting me interested in the weather. If you get chance,can you please send us a cold Christmas?
  6. Happy to help on Windoze 7 & 10, Android and Linux
  7. I was just thinking along the same lines - if things have changed for the worse over the last 18 hours or so, what is to say that they won't change back over the next 18 hours or so? These are only computer simulations in the real world the weather will do what it wants to anyway. Come on, collective chins up

  9. I'm pretty new at this model stuff, but if I understand it right, the stratosphere is not as dense as the troposphere so it is easier to model, something at T360 in the strat is about the same as something at T180 in the trop. So, this is right on the edge of possibilities and if the models are still showing it in a couple of days time we could be onto something . Please forgive and correct me if I'm wrong

  11. Introductions!

    Hi - thought I would say hello after lurking here a while. I have been interested in the weather since I did my meteorology badge in the scouts. I was on The Weather Outlook for around 8 years, mainly lurking, but have decided it was time to move on. I live about 5 miles SE of Oxford, and about 8 miles from Benson as the crow flies. We get some of Bensons cold nights but on average we are 1.5C above their temps. I work as a sales analyst for a national energy supplier. This means occasionally I can combine my hobby with work, which is always a bonus J I enjoy all aspects of weather but particularly extremes, be it hot/cold wet/dry. I would like to see another 1963 winter, but this is looking increasingly unlikely (unless you believe the Sunday Express).
