  1. Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    If, as someone in the model thread suggested, the ECM set-up would result in cold rain in my area (East Anglia), I'd much prefer a Euro High and a dry, cloudy south-westerly.

    Cloudy here now after a bright morning.

    In the era of TMW I think downgrades for cold were always going to happen, and I expect that, as TMW becomes more influential, the GFS, which tends towards showing flat, zonal outputs will become ever more reliable.

    Very sad, R.I.P.
  5. What amuses me is that people think that natural signs have to do with what's going to happen, meteorologically-speaking, rather than what has happened. You're on a hiding to nothing sometimes, I reckon. Most of the biggest mistakes I can recall have either been PR-related or errors of timing.

    I didn't see it but it sounds as though it was as entertaining as the Wales match was dull.
  8. SE and East Anglia generalweather discussion 08/11/2017 onwards

    Indeed, not too bad here at all.
  9. I meant in general, though it's even worse in TMW given that, as you say, it's usually insufficient to at least compensate for the downsides with the (few) upsides.
  10. Better than cold and snow, which causes many more problems (obviously I'm not referring to severe problems due to rainfall). Anyway, southern England is in a drought; we need some rain.

      I believe that happens in 30% of cases off the top of my head - I hope one day science finds a 'cure' perhaps for the hereditary kind it may be possible to eliminate it by removing the faulty gene.

      It would be nice - I've been expecting a gene therapy ever since I was a biology undergraduate, and that was in 2000-2003.

      sad to read that you have both been suffering

    Pity that the models seem to suggest cold again next weekend; with much of the south needing rain, it would have been useful to have had a couple of wet, mild weeks at least. Once we've had the rain we need, a Bartlett setup would be well-received by me, with cloud maintaining mild overnight temperatures and no risk of snow and the problems associated with that sort of weather.
