  1. Hmmm all a bit hit and miss really, at the end of the day, probably just a bit too far east but there some rainfall, thunder and lightning although perhaps I expected a little bit more than there actually was. Radar for this part is a little mis-leading but the models have pretty much nailed it that the bulk of the PPN would be in the Irish sea and in Western areas.
  2. Well I'm off too bed now and its a case of seeing if any lightning flashes/thunder will in the end wake me up and if not, find out how and why it went wrong, radar is picking up a tad but it still looks a little ordinary when you compared to the stuff that is about to hit the Western Isles and even the more isolated cells across parts of Western Scotland.
  3. i'm aware of that but just highlighting all those bright echos in the Atlantic, goes to show how things can intensify in a space of a few hours though so whilst the radar and even cloud images look rather ordinary, things can change quickly.
  4. Not a big fan of the forecaster to begin with but the graphics have shown a shift to a less thundery Wednesday however I would not be surprised if things were totally different again by tomorrow morning's forecast. Of course, if things do go not according to plan, it would be nice too have some sort of explanation to it but I somehow doubt that would be the case. At the moment, all the action is on the extreme tip of North Western Ireland and more scattered across SW Scotland, so kind of going to forecast so far that being said. Looks like all the CAPE is out in the Atlantic with those bright echos, hopefully radar echoes like those can be repeated around these shores! Its all a bit of a waiting game at the moment.
  5. Looking at XC Weather and there is some convergence zones perhaps developing, one over the centre of Ireland and one over Northern parts of Wales, it will be interesting how the rainfall will interact with all this and see if that rain over Ireland will start to turn more heavier and thundery. For those who don't know, convergence zones are where winds are blowing from opposite directions but towards each other so for example ---> <---- - when you see the arrows on XC Weather showing that, then the chances of thundery activity could well increase.
  6. I think there is way too much over analysis regarding PPN charts, at the end of the day, the threat of storms are there, how severe/widespread they will be is quite uncertain. I have to say, Wednesday afternoon could well be interesting for the NE, kind of reminds me of the 31st August 2005 storm of a cold front engaging into warm humid air and providing quite a severe storm, Timing of the cold front with daytime heating could well lead to some fun and games! As for here, I have no idea and there is no point in stressing over it, the weather will do whatever it wants to do!
  7. Can't believe the negativity from certain football reporters(Phil McNulty!) towards Hodgson. He had every right to make changes if he wants too, I mean there is a 23 man squad for a reason and in all honesty, we should of beaten Slovakia giving the amount of domination we had in that game. I'll be more concerned about our lack of ability to open up teams who defend deep, fair enough if it finishes 0-0 and the keeper has a blinder of a game but we only had 5 shots on target out of nearly 30 shots which is pretty poor really. Once we get towards the 18 yard box we seem to lack ideas and there seem to be quite a bit of nervousness from England. I also think Hodgson with his bags of experience deserves a bit more respect to be fair, I'll be more concerned if England was getting outplayed by the 3 teams we played but its far from the case at all. Also all this talk about finishing 1st or 2nd is irrelevant too me, as Hodgson rightly says, you don't win any prizes for topping the group and infact you got a slight disadvantage of playing 2 days earlier. All this talk we might face France is rather premature also, they could get knocked out in the next round so I wish McNulty would stop being obsessed of mentioning this in his reports/blogs!
  8. It was just attack against defence really in the end, its hard to create too many clear cut chances when a team sits so deep but a lack of composure in attack is alarming. 2nd half was fairly poor really but we are through and there is not much difference between 1st and 2nd really.
  9. So Hodgson knew he had to made the changes and he did, so fair play to him. Love how supporters(and pundits who never been a manager) think they know better than a man with over 20-30 years of experience in managment! We do seem to lack creativity when we are around our 18 yards box but do got to bear in mind, in the last 10 mins, the players are more fatigued and Wales had virtually 10 men in their own 18 yard box and as France last night showed, its difficult to break those type of teams down!
  10. Money talks but you can hardly blame him really? Anyone that is offered with such a substancial pay rise would do the same, its not like he's really got a heart for Southampton, and why would he, he's dutch and never supported them so on a financial sence, it all makes sence. We will soon see if its the right decision on a footballing sence but I do rate him highly, he's one of those managers that looks beyond the result e.g Not being happy with the team despite winning whereas other managers will be the opposite and say "We havant played well but the most important thing is the 3 points".
  11. Can't see much hitting here storm wise but seeing the towering cumulus around to the North and East is rather interesting too see, there is not much of a sea breeze and who knows as the evening goes on then any off shore winds may help any developing showers to hit here.
  12. Kinda typical outputs for this time of year with an easterly flow soon developing and look like persisting in some capacity for the foreseeable future. Wednesday does look like it could be the coolest/dullest/wettest day of the week but a lot of uncertainty regarding the details, the shallow trough could well be in a different position by Wednesday comes around which of course will certainly affect the weather on the day itself. Certainly potential to scoop up some warmth but I don't as of yet see much in the way of a dry settled spell, can't complain as we recently just had one and at the moment, heights over Greenland are low which could bode well for the summer.
  13. Well I hope this club has now made plans for next season in terms of players and more than likely a new manager situation... Oh of course they havant, Charnley is clueless as is Fat Ash. I don't want Benitez to stay, are people mad to suggest quality manager like him will suit the Championship? Seriously... Get a grip, if he stays, he will resign if we get off too a poor start after just 4 or 5 games and the club will then decline like all the other relegated clubs have. We need a proven Championship manager who knows the division and knows the type of player we need to get this club back up. I don't want a manager who joined the club and then throws in a relegation clause so he can bail out if it went wrong, I want a manager who is committed to the cause but of course this club was just desprate for the short term and yet again making another mistake and not thinking of the consequences if we did go down. Got lucky last time I feel with Hughton being promoted to manager status after he had a good start to the championship season, I just can't see how we will be lucky this time.
  14. Sadly if you can't beat a side who is bottom of the league and the only side in the league that has not beaten them then its very hard to justify of staying up. Its not over yet but Spurs is a MUST WIN, draw won't be good enough. The club should start planning for next season, they should of done it weeks ago, the relegation clause still bothers me immensly because you could very much end up of searching for a new manager to try and take the club back up again aswell as selling and buying new players. I can't see us going back up at the first time of asking next season if we do go down.
  15. Got to say, its this type of set up I am looking forward too now I'm living in the North West. Unlikely to be affected too much by the infamous North Sea low cloud and temps will be much higher. One thing to note though, I think winds could well be quite gusty though, would not be surprised if at some point during this spell of weather we see winds potentially touching 40-50MPH, especially to the lee of high ground. I think its most likely any winds that strong could occur in the early part of next week rather than the weekend but its something to note though.
