  1. Yea, there is no model on tonights runs that does not bring some disruptive gusts to parts of the country midweek, hopefully things won't verify with gusts this strong
  2. With stories like this https://www.skysports.com/golf/news/12176/11552508/justin-rose-and-paul-casey-to-sit-out-race-to-dubai-season-finale https://www.golf-monthly.co.uk/news/tour-news/tony-jacklin-total-agreement-mcilroys-european-tour-decision-169468 You have to wonder how much longer it is before the European Tour becomes widely considered a second-rate tour. It's not just about the money. The PGA tour has long had the bigger prize pots and for a journeyman player if you can get your PGA tour card then it makes financial sense to use it, the 100th ranked payer on the
  3. No its 12z but only have clusters for 252 hours instead of 240 for some reason..
  4. GFS Clusters, 25% go for something along the lines of the op at day 10, 15% something closer to the ECM
  5. The model ensembles still do build high pressure over the UK but not till day 15ish, of course the question will be what happens to that high afterwards. But the theme of high pressure over the UK does seem to drifting from mid month which was showing a week back towards the final third of the month now.
  6. coldies can relax, end of the ECM was a clear mild outliner
  7. Phillip Morris has launched its own stop smoking campaign: https://smokefreefuture.co.uk/hold-my-light/?open=heated-tobacco Lots of gnashing of teeth and moaning about them doing so: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45932048 but car companies have been seeling up gas guzzling polluting cars for decades and can't see anyone calling them hypocritical for now selling us 'green' cars. At the end of the day they have an advertising budget that the traditional anti-smoking organizations could only dream off if through this budget they can get out a good quit smoking campa
  8. bit late to this thread but... Is it a case of genetics or a case of too much too soon, players may have the talent to play top-flight football at 17 18 or 19 but are there bodies fully ready. Does starting players too soon increase the risk of meaning that they will have to retire at an earlier age?

  10. Latest JMA picks up on the same theme as the other LR models of a mid-month switch from high to low pressure dominated setup
  11. Does anyone know what this little guy is? Rat, mouse,vole?
  12. BCC updated its long range model overnight and showing the same sort of change in pattern mid-month as CFS /EC46 EPS clusters are showing the change showing up high pressure in the majority at 240 hours: but in a majority by the end of the run Things certainly to be firming up on a pattern change past the first 10 days or so of October.
  13. Always been a fan of Justin so a shame that winning the FedEX going to be overshadowed. Not many golfers (if any) who have Order of Merit, FedEx (or there equivalents) a major and world number one (plus Olympic gold) on their CV's. Probably needs to get a couple more majors under his belt to get more widespread recognition that his talent deserves.
  14. It quiet close to is mean through the majority of the run, goes out on its own right at the end. Spread in the GFS and ECM ensembles at 10 day is about the same.
  15. Looking through the ECM members and there is an almost 50/50 split for Sunday with 23/50 going for a deep low around the country, the others leaning more towards the op run. GFS looks pretty evenly split as well, despite its op runs being more bullish.
  16. regarding England having the easier teams to beat so far; three off the four teams in the semi finals run in has been are equal, having all faced one higher ranked team, Croatia slightly harder having faced two. France 1 higher ranked team - Argentina Belgium 1 higher ranked team - Brazil Croatia - 2 high ranked teams - Argentina, Denmark England - 1 higher ranked team Belgium Main difference I suppose is that England has not beaten a high ranked team so far. Croatia has the hardest route to winning now - needing two beat two higher ranked teams (England then ei
  17. I think the next step is the banning of tobacco. Raise the age limit by a year every year for say 15-20 years then ban its general sale, those who have been unable to quit after this date will have to apply to get a licence to continue to buy tobacco products. Let's be honest if tobacco was discovered now it would be a Class A drug. Unlike alcohol (the other main legal drug) it has no health benefits even if taken in moderation, can't see any real arguments that anyone could present against its banning.
  18. Yup, he deliberately stopped the ball knowing that the penalty would probably be the lesser of two evils and didn't seem that bothered in admitting doing so. Not playing the ball when is motion is a fundamental part of the rules of the sport, just as not using your hands is in football or passing backwards is in rugby, completely wrong that Mickelson though it was ok to do so for gain.
  19. Never thought would ever see a Professional Golfer doing this sort of stuff you would do at crazy golf, not at a Major
  20. Been one of those horrible days were not quite warm enough just to wear a shirt but too warm for a jumper/coat. At least tomorrow looks a bit brighter
  21. Another cracking weekend looks like we will have a few grey days at the start of the week before things improve with the chance of a storm to spark some interest.
  22. Ended up with 4mm of rain yesterday. A touch of frost first thing this morning, up to 11c now bright but quite a bit of high cloud around.
  23. Ended up with 17mm here, with the rain clearing away about 4pm. Now the 'warmest' its been all day at 8c.
  24. Miserable is the only word to describe tomorrow - the only upside is that it looks like it will be the low part of the week weatherwise:
