  1. Amazing video of Fuego after the deadly eruption!

     

  2. The Parklife Festival has finished and the thousands of basic teenagers and young adults are leaving the city. The thought that one day in the not so distant future those people will procreate leaves me speechless.

      I suspect Ed means a word for an aquatic bird, starts with 's' and ends in 'hag'.

      @IanR Lot's hate the cold weather, that's true but who cares about the masses? Cold weather is for those with eclectic taste. 😀

      I was thinking that a rain shadow would develop over Greater Manchester today given the path of the low pressure but nothing like that happened. 

      Parts of the country, and not just high  ground, have seen heavy wet snow in April before (there is a thread somewhere on net weather).

      I tried climbing into one of their freezer cabinets once. Shop security didn't see the funny side of it. Oh well, there's always farmfoods.

      @Scorcher God forbid, it would stop the lovely continuous warming we are currently enjoying. 

      Interestingly the gulf stream contributes to higher sea level for western europe and lower for the east coast of US. A slow down and even more a shut down would benefit western Europe in that respect.

  13. Heavy rain east, south and west of Manchester but more or less dry here. A perfect example of the rain shadow and I am so glad the precipitation is just rain as otherwise I would be fuming!

      Really do wish i could literally hibernate for the next 6 months. Once the clocks go forward, its the beginning of the worst time of year for me. its only about 12c and even that felt warm. Thats how pathetic my tolerence is.

      I would prefer to migrate to the southern hemisphere till about October. Southern Chile or Argentina gets my vote. New Zeeland is stunning but too far.

  23. This time a week ago we were looking at the radar as snow showers were beginning. Now, I am looking at the models seeing nothingness :-(

  24. Epic cold spell! I wish it was the beginning of a frozen March.

    1. IanR

      IanR

      Might not be frozen all the way , but a colder March than what we are used to is more likely than not, I hope its 2013 all over again , remember the blazing hot long July that year after that very cold wintry late March early April snowy spell   

    2. I remember Atlantic 252

      yes legendary, time of year could be disadvantage though next week, as we lose the E'ly? will slack lows produce for the south? unsure, could be 4C next week
