  1. Ahhhh, never mind the first Daffodils.... The first sight of the traditional "winter's over" comment on the models forum signals the official start of Spring
  2. What's not to like with weather like this (taken yesterday). So warm at 3pm that outer layers came off and a glorious sunny afternoon
  3. Spectacular over here - crisp wind from the NE and best described as 'bracing' - long may it continue
  4. Happy to be proved wrong but having looked at the models I see nothing to change my mind. In fact the other day the car in shadow was frozen but the rear was in the sun and steaming. It always surprises me to see the sheer power even at this time of the year.
  5. What a let down, roll on summer now the winter is over!
  6. Not that far away but the pesky Solent heat reservoir is doing the normal job
  7. Wind from the North West has increased significantly but the rain keeps on falling, even harder now. No chance for snow unless we have a serious temperature drop
  8. Nothing but rain here but on a positive note the salting starting at 15.00 so the drains will be highly saline by now
  9. It's just a cold wet day here, no wind and I cannot see how the current conditions are going to change for any snow.
  10. Yup, nothing more than a bog standard gale.....
  11. It's not as bad as anticipated at present, Chimet is only at 43 knots and the forecasts were in the 65 upwards range. I would think that with a change to SW this is not particularly remarkable when compared to the recent winters.............give it another couple of hours and things might change of course
  12. Model Banter, Moans and Ramps Autumn/Winter 2014/15.

    100% blue sky, Sun's heat solid and no wind.....this winter is getting better!
  13. If the posting rate is related to the chances of cold then this model is forecasting mild, mild, mild.....

    Cleaning a black car yesterday the sun was sufficiently strong at 15.40 to produce a noticeable amount of evaporation showing as wisps of vapour where the water (cold) was drying. On Sunday here it was glorious and warm enough to sit in the very bright sun..........surely it's all over bar the (forum) shouting? Mind you today is a sack of cack but we are on the right track
