    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. tell mother nature that.... Of course summery weather is possible, but the summer season isnt a weather type... we get summer regardless of what the weather produces. Appreciate that, thanks... tbh i dont know why "that post" yesterday was so misunderstood, we are sliding into Autumn, and recent runs have clearly illustrating this and several posts this morning have commented as much. I love heat, i want heat, but i cannot find currently (this of course could change) anything from any source that would suggest theres a lengthy warm/sunny/settled spell. Its looking decidedly that we are returning to a pretty average, normal, westerly regime - so unsettled.
  2. That depends upon what the aim of facebook is... it has become much bigger then its original premis, and should allow anyone from any political persuasion to voice any legal opinion. Paul Joseph Watson and Raheem Kassan challenge the left wing narrative, and are referred to as "extreme right" which is what leftists do to (and would have done to thatcher if she was around today) in an attempt to discredit their valid views. Im left of centre, always have been, but i can say that PJW and RK are nothing more then old fashioned (reasonable) right wingers... they are not "far right" , but what they say challenges the elitist narrative, and they dont like that. in a word..... no. Back in the 90's i went through a phase of being open to that sort of "new age" thinking, i listened to Icke, but pretty much immediately rejected his nebulous theories the same way i rejected religion 20 years previously on the grounds that there was no actual evidence.
  3. The seasons are not an astronomical event, man did that to "tidy it up" by using the quarter days. The seasons are a natural event that dont start/stop on any one date, but weather plays a part in advancing or delaying some of the processes and as this is a meteorological forum, the meteorological summer ends on August 31st.
  4. Seasonal bias has always hindered rational objective discussion on here, its made worse when people who should know better compound such views. Meanwhile, the 12z in FI returns us to an average unsettled westerly regime towards the end of the meteorological Summer as we slide inextricably in the direction of .... erm... September....
  5. Firstly, i do not "wind up" thank you. Secondly i said "slide into autumn" , i didnt say those charts WERE autumnal.. in other words, we are heading that way and away from the current pattern. Now if you look at the actual charts for 24 hours later, then youll see the much cooler temps, which in a brisk, fresh northwesterly with frequent showers will be another step towards autumn. The main point being that if we have an atlantic flow in 10-11 days time, then the chances of a return to summer like conditions - settled and sunny, this summer (by August 31st) will be IMHO greatly reduced. These charts of course may well not become reality, but commenting on the options the charts are currently showing IS what this forum is about. I made comment because the GFS and ECM at t240 are remarkably similar so ought to be taken heed of.
  6. The slide into Autumn seems to be gathering pace with both the GFS 06z and ECM 00z firmly in the same ball park..
  7. The BBC are not as accurate as they once were, for example 6 months ago the GFS were consistently predicting a minor snow event here in Derby for 7 days ahead of it happening, the BBC were having non of it until the 13.30 forecast, just 30 mins before it snowed. (Feb 11th). Personally, i find the GFS ECM and NOAA charts when in agreement more accurate then the BBC outlook, so i dont use it.
  8. Cloud cover?... no one can nail this far off just where/when the thunderstorms/showers will fall , and under those temps will be much lower then if it was clearer sunny/bright skies.
  9. Aye, smacks of an Easterly to me, showery in the South, drier and sunnier in the North, we wouldnt get a hot southerly but a warm, southerly sourced easterly?.. It wont be as hot as current conditions though, but better then average?
  10. Support here for the low to our south and a continuation of the warmth if not heat
  11. A longer spell of heat was always possible on the NOAA 500mb charts, the GFS has shifted towards what those charts had been suggesting several days ago as previously posted.
  12. Interesting, just look at the inversion here and the effect of the cool Northeasterlies with that dreadful "dead sky" stratiform low cloud.
  13. I agree with you on this... we are being fed information via social media, we are being told what we can watch and what we cant. I will listen to anybody who can present a viewpoint then i will make my own mind up whether i agree with them or not. By removing certain peoples posts/videos, we are being denied the option of thinking for ourselves, we are being subtly manipulated. As for ike?... hes a grade one loony who will get something right once in a while, like the proverbial "stopped clock" , but just because he MIGHT get something right, it doesnt mean everything hes said suddenly gains traction. He shouldnt be censored, nor should anyone like Paul Jospeh Watson , Raheen Kassan and others as long as they are not breaking any laws and they didnt... but are banned from facebook.
  14. Yes, the answer could be found on the FAX charts.. there was a trough or something (i too didnt view it) stretching up from Biscay.
  15. Periods of grey overcast cool damp conditions often seem to follow thundery breakdows... thats what the current ops are suggesting Weds-Fri ?
