  5. 18z parallel is a beauty. Will the trend strengthen in the morning runs? We shall see!

      NW London i see, a place i will probably be at!

      I wouldn't mind one of those, shame they are not that common!

  7. Hope everyone had a good Christmas day!

  8. Just had a go at writing a winter forecast. I'm favouring a colder than average winter :)https://forum.netweather.tv/topic/72635-the-seasonal-forecast-thread/page-32

      here's my winter forecast; we will look optimistically through the rain for some snow but the snow will keep unhappening and the rain will continue.

      You'll have to link me to it if you find it! Optimism from some on this forum is quite low when its mild for snow!

  9. Finally got my Davis weather station. Didn't bother with the data logger as im moving about these next few years. However, given that we pay 200-£300 for the weather station it seems pretty ridiculous that why want another £100-£150 to simply transfer data to a computer!

      Yeah, i've got the vantage vue. I just feel given the progression of technology that it could be inbuilt, even if it did add a small amount to the price. I do intend to get the pro one day, although im moving around a lot now with my last year of uni and jobs so data logging would have been a bit of a waste!

      It is expensive but your La Crosse couldn't hold 800 days of data.

      I gave up with my weather station for the same reason. It was like going back to the dark ages trying to get data off it. All I wanted was to put it into Excel then I could manipulate it to my hearts content but no chance.

  10. Have decided to invest in a Davis Vantage Vue, hopefully a wise purchase!

      Don't put it too high, rain totals get skewed. You'll have to compromise wind or rain data I'm afraid.

  11. Just finalised my masters funding; i'm doing an MSc in Polar and Alpine environments (i.e. climate change impacts). This time next year i'll apparently be in Greenland or Svalbard for several weeks!

      Thanks!Yes it is;Felix is running the course this year so we are most likely to go to Svalbard. Are you a previous student at Sheffield or just know of Eds work? He was certainly one of my favourite lecturers, albeit hes a bit eccentric

      Well done! So jealous about the Greenland/Svalbard bit! :-)

      Nah, I just spoke to Ed over email a few times. I did GIS and Remote Sensing MSc in Cork, though I considered doing the one in Sheffield. On the hunt for PhD places now!

  12. Probably had the best Uni CW i'll ever get. Record the weather over five days, and use the GFS charts to explain why it occurred!

  13. 7cm's of snow overnight, wasn't expecting that!

  14. Best snow event in a long while!!

  15. Is moving into my new Sheffield uni flat today!

  16. Off to Cyprus this morning!

  17. Few days and we should be rid of this horrible weather!

  18. Sunny all afternoon, 21c. Why can't all summer days be like this?

  19. Thanks for accepting! :)

  20. 21.9c, can we reach 22c!?

  21. Just got my A2 Jan results, B in Science and a B in Geog, was only a few marks off an A :/
