  1. Awful news from the States.  It seems that the shooting happened just up the road from an undergraduate friend and her husband - fortunately, they were both at work.

      Seemingly motivated by crackpot conspiracies on the Internet. World’s going mad.

      Truly shocking news and scenes.

      But in some ways not surprising this has happened again in the USA.

      Very sad overall.

      And with Trump bemoaning the lack of armed guards (within synagogues no less!) US denial isn't about to go away...

  2. Apologies to moderators - I was annoyed at the number of heat ramping posts in th Models thread and wanted to combine genuine model discussion with an alternate perspective.

      I haven't been well either, ended up with a migraine yesterday..as well as my worries with my family, it does get to the point that I feel I am being trolled by saying I don't like heat.  I am very thankful for the rain, but the house is still 25c. So i expect it will be in the low 20's by the time we get the heat again.

      Sorry to hear that you have family worries, Dami.  Our bungalow has cooled significantly, but it still seems to be releasing stored heat into the interior so is slightly warmer than you'd normally expect given how cool it is outside.

      both my hubby and little one suffer with heat, then she got a slight fever but she's better now. (which worried me) Our house was over 30c, the coolest room was our bedroom but the most it got down to was 26c. It's still 24c up there even now.

      Glad to hear btw that you are feeling better.  :)

  3. 33C down to 18C in 4 hours!

  4. Just changed my location details.  I haven't moved, but I wouldn't know that from my surroundings.  I've seriously seen more green vegetation in footage from Sothern California, at least since their drought eased the other year.

  5. There's a great deal of groupthink here at present regarding the heatwave.  I'm getting annoyed by frequent comments in the model thread stating that we're all going to be pleased by the forecast increase in temperatures and continued drought.  I don't know whether the posters are blissfully unaware that not everyone thinks the same way they do or whether there's a degree of coercion being applied to make sure all members hold the 'approved' opinion.  Getting a touch Orwellian, methinks, and my "Do Different" Norfolk philosophy makes me even more determined to point out that some of us want some rain.  I'm not asking for August to be a washout, so don't guilt-trip me with references to upset kids on holiday; all I want is some rain.  Overnight will be fine. 

  6. 40C by late next week - nightmarish stuff.  I cannot comprehend how anyone can want this.

      And the models keep flipping from one thing to the next-I really hope it does rain on Friday just to see BBC Weather and the models end up with egg on their face becuase they were right the first time!

      BTW, when did we lose the response icons other than the "like" and "thanks" options?

      It is actually quite scary stuff. The UK simply shouldn't experience such temperatures.

  7. interesting how hot weather turns some people into argumentative unpleasant t***s.

  8. This is getting ridiculous - I really could do with some warmth.

      You can come on holiday with me but it’s end of April Chris :drunk:

  9. UEA weather station shows a temperature of -4C and dewpoint of -7C!:shok:

  10. I think large teapot is probably (at least as yet) unproven and unsupported.  I used to say that significant snow in lowland England was a thing of the past, yet I have 3-3.5 inches of snow outside and  it's hardly melting, despite the fact that it's nearly March.

  11. large teapot confirmed yet again - despite SSW, easterly won't verify.

    1. I remember Atlantic 252

      I remember Atlantic 252

      EC is top model, having none of it

  12.  Am I missing something in the Stratosphere thread or are the experts saying the two vortices are going to merge again?

     

     

  13. I see the SSW is suddenly disappearing.  large teapot is a reality, it's high time people accepted it.

      Eh? The SSW is an absolute certainty. The 10hpa split is  beginning in the next 48 hours. Do you mean the tropospheric response?

      I had read that it wasn't due until the 18th.:cc_confused:

      it's here chris, should give us a two day cold spell with temps plunging to plus 6c, you have be warned

  14. MOD thread ridiculous - most posts should be in Ramp thread at best or not posted at all at worst.

  15. Back from my aunt's funeral in Essex - extremely cold and quite snow, but sunny, which was appropriate.

  16. Already reconsidring my abandonment of the m o d e r n w i n t e r.:D

      winter is over now

      M odern winter was a term used as far back as 1849! Ain't anything modern about the term,

  17. Why do I bother trying to make sure my posts are relevant in the MOD thread when virtually no-one else does?:angry:

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      as long as they don't get removed

  18. I have an admission to make:

    Although we haven't had anything more in the way of snow than the last two years, other lowland areas of England have, so I'm abandoning the m o d e r n w i n t e r, though I do still think that AGW is reducing the frequency of such events.

    1. lassie23

      if i get any more snow this winter, i'll have to abandon the october fog index too:wallbash:

      Well tomorrow (first day of winter) will be cold and mostly dry, so your 'forecast' is bust already! :D

      but from 2nd it's normal, apart from 1 day northerly on Fri 8th, which will be wishbone

  20. Mediocre Output Disappointment thread bad enough with endless O/T posts.:wallbash:

      We've had a few snow showers, but nothing's laying.  Complete waste of time.  I'd much prefer a Bartlett High.

    4. lassie23

      lassie23

      yes i can't get excited by a dusting either

  21. Mediocre Output Disappointment thread is affected by contradictory posts as it so often is...:nonono:

      Fair point, I was just amused by people referencing the same model update when some are saying how awful it is and others are quite complimentary.

    3. lassie23

      lassie23

      well if you want to know the weather outlook avoid that thread

      Ridiculous at present in the Mediocre Output Disappointment thread; contradictory opinions after the first few charts.:rofl:

      I wish some would put me on ignore (no you Chris btw)

  23. Oh, and as an addendum to my previous update - please don't post banter or moans in the Model thread!  My Ignore list has expanded dramatically this past few days thanks to all the nonsense in that thread.

  24. Here's a thought for cold fans in the Model thread -  never think that serious cold and snow is likely until all three main models agree well within T+144, preferably not until T+72 hours.

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      too sensible for that thread

    2. chrisbell-nottheweatherman

      chrisbell-nottheweatherman

      Pretty low bar, that one, but you may well be correct!
