  1. Saw triple frontier the other day, was it expecting it to be typical big names/big budget rubbish but it was actually pretty good.
  2. Shame they cancelled it... been watching daredevil and thought it was pretty good.Much better than i expected although my expectations were low as i was comparing it to the film.
  3. Heavy rain only in Motherwell, these borderline snow events almost always fall on the rain side here.
  4. They should be based on the severity but also partly on the area in my opinion.The highlands and islands for example don't really need a yellow warning for 45-55mph gusts as it's unlikely to cause any disruption in those areas but it might through the central belt.70mph might be worth an amber through the central but in less populated areas a yellow would suffice.The difference between amber, yellow and no warning is the problem areas.Red warnings are usually reserved for the very worst conditions and often don't get used at all during a year so i'd keep them as is.
  5. I saw that one too, didn't think it was quite as bad as the critics said i mean it's suppose to be way out there.It was quite entertaining silliness just don't expect much from it.
  6. Quite bog standard where i am, i'm sure coastal and upland areas were worth a warning but most of the central belt didn't even get gusts over 50mph.
  7. Pretty poor stuff in Motherwell as is often the case when it's windy unless a westerly gets funnelled through the central belt.Max gusts barely making it to 45mph.
  8. There's no warnings where i am today and a yellow warning tomorrow even though the strongest winds are forecast for 2-3 pm today.

    To be fair a lot of the younger generation think that too.It's hard to compare different eras but personally i think a lot of the older stuff is better than what's came out in the last 10 yrs or so and i'm only 28.
  10. I didn't mind love actually the worst from that lot is probably battleship imo, one of the batmans or gangs of new york being the best.
  11. In my opinion to simplify things and have clear start and end points for each warning colour they should be based on expected wind gusts and whether it's a rural or urban area.So for wind something along the lines of 60-75mph being a yellow warning for coastal or upland and lightly populated areas, 75-90mph being amber and 90+ being red.For towns and cities 50-65mph being yellow, 65-80mph being amber and 80+ being red.
  12. Must admit i do like stormy weather but i don't see it being anything out of the ordinary.'Hurricane bawbag' wasn't all that bad where i am mostly in the 60-70mph range although quite persistent as it lasted for a good 5/6 hours.The Jan 3rd storm was the strongest i've ever experienced.It only lasted about an hour but it was regularly getting to around 90mph.Plenty of sheet roofs blown off including the full roof on nearby council flats and there must have been a lot of tiles off with the amount of people up fixing their roofs over the following few weeks.Boxing day 98 was quite bad too but Jan 3rd was the only proper near Hurricane strength storm i've seen.
  13. Is that a question? Only thing i can think of is Liam Neeson was in a few of them but i don't remember him being in a couple of them... unfortunately he won't be in anything else after his Mel Gibson moment.
  14. Decent heavy snow shower in Motherwell, turning lighter now.
  15. Freezing fog in Motherwell has left every tree looking white...
