  1. It always at T+384 though and never gets any nearer. If we get these charts at sub 300 hours then it might get interesting
  2. Well the showers have really intensified in Wakefield in the last 2 hours or so, quite squally too. Looking at the radar, there’s plenty more coming from the north west this evening. A filthy horrible night.
  3. I get the nagging feeling that we’ve been here before with great early synoptics, and come winter it all goes to pot. Take example the wintry blast in Nov 2001 that @Weather-history posted about in another thread..... Winter 2001/02 was not particularly memorable I don’t think. I’m keeping my feet firmly on the ground for now
  4. Good job it’s only 5th November then eh! Nothing wasted this early.
  5. I have just caught up on the last 4 pages of the thread, and I have established that: The PV is weak and staying that way The PV is strengthening The trop and strat are going to stay disconnected The trop and strat are going to recouple "It bodes well for winter" "It's not good news for winter" Glad that's sorted then.
  6. 1. Posters on the model rollercoaster - massive highs at snowmageddon 200 hours away, followed by wrist slashing at 72 hours when it's not going the way they thought. 2. People who post with a "hubris" style.
  7. Not sure about "battering" us - just looks like it turns into a normal autumnal depression.
  8. Look for a desktop scanner with slide scanning functionality - best solution overall.
  9. People will do well to remember this in Winter when posting charts at T+1000 - a completely futile exercise.
  10. Two apps I use are: Rain Alarm, which shows a live radar for the last few hours. Great to see which direction rain is approaching from and how quickly. Thermometer - which I used for running to check the local temperature, the data being pulled from local weather stations. Would be interested to hear of any radar apps that go back more than 3 hours, eg sometimes I want to see the radar from 24 hours ago and scroll forward to now.
  11. On the contrary, the upcoming "storm" has piqued my interest and I've returned to the forum after a break of a couple of weeks. For me, much more interesting than model watching hot oppressive weather, especially at this time of year - quite unusual for August to have such a windy spell. The irony is that the storm may not be named as we are not in the 'right' time of the year.
  12. Awful conditions today 😞

      when your fan blows hot air at you, you know something ain't right

  13. Not sure about that. For me, the week just gone was just right. Mainly dry, not too hot, not too cold. I was at a car show this weekend, and the weather was just right. I went to the same show last year and it was far too hot and uncomfortable and no-one enjoyed it. Yesterday it was sunny and 21C, absolutely perfect. I can't understand why anyone would want it to be hot when we have got the weather on offer that we have presently which is spot on. As for the models, I don't see a lot to be disappointed about in the reliable timeframe (T+144) - the fine and pleasant weather continues! Perfect!
