    i love the seasons, i love mild februarys, it reminds me of my childhood exploring the countryside. making dens in hedgerows, sheltering from the rain, hearing the mistle thrush singing as the mild sw wind blows dark clouds across the sky. many records from the mid 60's remind me of these times.. overlanders 'michelle'. 'keep on running' , 'uptight', 'little by little' (dusty).. then back to our coal fired home to watch 'robinson crusoe' , jackanory, blue peter, thunderbirds .. this is why the bartlett to me is welcome. i love the spring. the first catkins, celendines, ladysmock, nests, the countryside in spring is heaven.
    i love the heat in summer, the hot southerly draft, 'trance' music is so apt, i love the thunderstorms too.
    in the notorious winter of 81, i had to work outdoors , ive never been so cold. i felt sick and numb with it. i think thats when i lost interest in snow/cold.

  1. Anomalies arent too bad, they dont allow for that large scandinavian trough some gfs runs have in FI, theres no negative pressure anomaly, but slight heights. A pretty slack Westerly/North of west upper flow, weak troughing over biscay, .(and the UK ) Theres nothing seriously poor here (although short lived unsettled spells are possible) . Not entirely settled, but nothing as poor as currently we are getting. Could be warm, or thundery as some charts suggest if we do establish troughing over Biscay.
  2. Early June 82 had a heatwave with torrential thunderstorms over several days. We had flooding.
  3. The CET appears to suggest an improving summer over the 3 months.. June 14.5c, July 16.5c August also 16.5c and it came about 20th in the Manchester Summer index didnt it? Think it was overshadowed by 1995 which was one of the best.
  4. Just to illustrate This chart is from the 10th, it covers the 6-10 day period of which today, the 18th is mid point. This chart clearly has the UK under low pressure , the current gfs rolling out now for midday today shows that the Anomaly chart is very close. Its not about "right" or "wrong" but abot degrees of accuracy and the anomaly charts are seldom far out from the solution.
  5. Yes there was! ...this unsettled spell WAS modelled by the anomalies, ive been expecting it for a while now. NO ONE has said they are infallible...
  6. no anomaly support for that rather bizarre chart.. (its evolution), interesting viewing but nowt to worry about.
  7. odd... i think most people are affected by pollen in some way or another. Usually quite mild. I used to get it really badly, sore eyes, sore throat, running nose, even nosebleeds... I took nothing, did nothing, now at 64 im free from it..
  8. its looking a lot cloudier now low pressure has become more of a player.... frustrating times ahead i think..
  9. low horizon display?... possibly not a skyfull..
  10. fantastic!... i was in the land of nod, after a cloudy evening. last nights daisy, released before 9pm, has a cluster around 11 0'clock that should be in view tonight..
  11. They dont look as strong this year to my untrained eye
  12. Yes it looks like that anomaly stands, ive not seen any report of 30c being reached. Ive seen 28c, but did temps top 28.3c? because that is/was the daily temp record.. so we might have missed the 30c but 28.4c or over would see a new daily temp record.
  13. Oh i have no doubt theres a pattern change after the breakdown to a spell of unsettled, its just the cold unsettled with low pressure to our East i believe is wrong. the anomalies consistently predict the uk under a trough but with high pressure solidly to both our east and far west.
  14. The 06z has NO support from the anomalies, so ignore it, its not worth getting all het up and anxious about
  15. Needed a camera to view properly, and ive only my samsung galaxy, but im pleased enough with the results.. taken between 11pm and midnight.
