  1. GFS 00z yes please, warm and interesting weather together

  2. Seems to have been a decent August down here.

  3. Sorry Dave I can make up my own mind

  4. Almost my perfect summers day yesterday (23.3c, warm even on the coast, lots of sun and convective cumulus).. today is another good summers day.

      exactly, and still very light last evening at 900pm ,today is 24c here and after a hot july there is a lot left in summer yet, snow lovers have a very very long wait yet

      I like snow too but it's anyome that seems to think it's almost/already Autumn that have a while to wait I think

  5. The end is high.. on thunderstorms, one hopes.

      Come on autumn. Bring it on.

      Nah Autumn doesn't have as much thunderstorm potential.. or maybe it will this year. lol

  6. Some kind of Noctilucent cloud display to my N/NW now..

  7. A diurnal range of 23.1c at Exeter Airport yesterday, 7.7c to 30.8c - coolest min in the country, then 0.6c short of the highest max in the country. Not bad.

  8. Well the temp here is already 9.4c at 10:50pm.. this very warm weather seems to be having a rather notable blip here today/tonight

      You can get cool nights with very warm setups under anticyclones in the summer, not sure why that surprises you so much, once the high builds again just to our north later next week we could get cool nights again

    2. March Blizzard

      March Blizzard

      March 2012 was a good example. Mins near freezing and max near/above 20C.

      Indeed, never neared my record July low with uppers of 15C before though lol.. min 6.1c

      Yes March 2012 was great here mins around 0c and maxima near 21c.

  9. Where has this strange below average temp day here come from?

    1. Bottesford

      Bottesford

      After Sunday only Tuesday has been above average here!

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Ah that's not so good..

      24c in North Devon but 18c here, can't remember a sea breeze having such an effect when the general flow is ENE

  10. Just noticed it a bit chilly to start August 1976.. every summer has it's cooler moments. http://www.wetterzentrale.de/archive/ra/1976/Rrea00219760801.gif

    1. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Ah yes. 31st July 76 I reckon snow on the tops of the Scottish mountains: http://www.wetterzentrale.de/archive/ra/1976/Rrea00219760731.gif

      Didn't 1995 have a cool June in some parts? I'm thinking weekend 22/23 of June is our cool part of Summer 2013.

    3. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      just maybe, who knows anything is possible

      I wouldn't mind so much if we'd get some thunder but I doubt we will.

    3. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Yeah we could do with a bit of thunder if it ever happems

    4. Bottesford

      Bottesford

      Nah hot sunshine for 2 months will do! Storms ok so long as they time in correctly - Saturday afternoon/evening is NOT the right time!

  12. The models always seem to trend one way or another but how often are these trends actually correct?

    1. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Oo I get a questionmark with my Hurrah

  13. Starting to think this is going to be a notably dry June here

    1. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      Makes a change for a drier than average June long overdue

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Certainly a contrast from last years 186mm here! currently on 14.6mm with the models not showing much more to come even this weekend.

    3. Ben_Cambs

      Ben_Cambs

      Indeed, only 8.8mm so far this June here. A stark contrast to last year, but average temperatures are lower so far, only 13.8C so far this June.

  14. 23c today... heatwave

    1. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      It is a decently above average day here at least, and sunny too, reached 23.9c now.. wonder if it can creep up a bit more?

    2. MP-R

      MP-R

      Humidity wave at least.

  15. Has the 18z been on the vodka?

    1. Alex

      Alex

      It's a rather crazy run but alot still depends on the formation of the depression over the Bay of Biscay tomorrow.

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Yeah that seems to be causing quite a lot of uncertainty still

  16. Maybe some people need to have a smaller glass.. we're in the UK not the Med.

    1. Tony27

      Tony27

      it feels like i live in the shetland isles sometimes not the south east

    2. Bottesford

      Bottesford

      Yes we're not the Med but we're not Iceland either!

  17. Well the 18z is one for the hard drive..

  18. Well the ECM 12z just about sums up this country's weather recently.. will it ever end?

    1. NeilN

      NeilN

      There is always one model that ruins it...however, are we not allowed heat until 2015?

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Would be very unlucky but typical of recently it seems. May be similar to the idea the Met Office have, but thankfully in an uncertain timeframe.

  19. Seems I don't understand the world at times

  20. Should enforce my own rule better which is to not read the MOD thread much but make my own mind up about the charts, rather than just letting myself get frustrated at some of what I read lol.

    1. Polar Maritime

      Polar Maritime

      Surely everyone has there own opinion, And discussing all of them leads to a better one..?

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Yes that's true, just with some things that my mind doesn't agree with or I think are nonsense (i.e saying summer will likely be a write off due to unsettled weather and a bit of northern blocking now)

      I don't always express my view in the best way.

  21. Funny how the warmer airmass tomorrow could mean the coldest day for a while on parts of the south coast..

    1. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      All down to cloud cover I'm afraid go inland and it will be warm and sunny

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      yeah I know it's due to possible sea fog or low cloud, it happens sometimes that southerly winds are cooler for the S. coast. I am inland atm so should see 20C+ :)

  22. Blimey just 12% humidity reported at Odiham

    1. Polar Maritime

      Polar Maritime

      Correct Reef ! Very reliable Davis weather stations..

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      That's very true reef, I was taking it off xcweather which I think is just MetO stations and airports :)

      I do see some way off dew points on weather underground sometimes (atm one in Somerset shows -19C when others are about +4C!)

    3. SunnySouthCoast

      SunnySouthCoast

      It does seem a bit low, but it is a Met office station. I had 22% humidity down here on the coast this afternoon

  23. Interesting satellite images today with that low spiral just to the west/SW of the UK

  24. In my location, a pretty underwhelming March following a pretty underwhelming winter compared to what the statistics for the country as a whole may say.

    1. karyo

      karyo

      There are losers even in the best of winter spells!

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      That is very true, not too bothered though focusing more on spring now.

      The highest min temp of any winter season I have recorded so far, starting recording in Oct 07.

  25. A bit of snow might make me like this coming weather slightly better, otherwise spring weather would be good. 3C and grey doesn't really fill me with joy.
