  1. Is thinking the models look farrrr better than I would get the impression of by just reading the model thread!

      UKMO/ECM at around 72 hours plus are good enough, the GFS however is very cold but fairly dry due to shortwaves developing in the easterly flow thus cutting off the PPN.

      As discussed in MOD I think it's all about the GFS being a poor run for snow in eastern England (even though it's only one run lol!)

      Thanks, I agree with you both it does look like a poorer run for the east, although I expect the outcome to be different of course, as you say, it is just one GFS run!

  2. I do like winter and frosty/snowy weather, but right now give me back those long warm summer days and light evenings..

  3. seems to have been a marked increase in autumn colour here in the last couple of days :)

  4. I'm sure quite a few would want a repeat of this month as we all know.. I'm not actually sure I would though, because looking at the records, although quite 'good' it was not nearly that remarkable down here. http://www.tutiempo....-1981/38390.htm and watching many others get plenty of snow and temps below -20C while I don't get below -7C, get milder weather at times and miss out on quite a bit of it might cause me to turn slightly green.
  5. Cough. cough cough cough. cough, cough. coughcough cough. cough... sneeze.

  6. theres nothing better than sitting in the sun with a mug of hot chocolate after coming in from a cold frosty morning :)

  7. Anyone know a good place to get poles for an anemometer? thinking about further improving the height of mine..



      how about maplins etc...use aerial masts they come in different heights

      thanks, will have a look :D

  8. 16C, damp and drizzly now

  9. Was the most beautiful day yesterday, not a cloud in the sky and excellent visibility! :)

  10. At 2pm the temp was 13.7c, since then mild/warm air has come in and it's now 18.2c!..

  11. cool, misty low cloud, but any rain or any type of weather missing me or dieing out as usual.. nothing changes.

  12. Ahh the sound of grasshoppers on a summer evening :)

  13. Wondering if I'll ever see a thunderstorm again..

      There's still Autumn yet :-)

  14. Records across the UK continue to be broken for the boring-ness of the weather..

  15. This countrys weather just doesn't cut it anymore.. Somehow I've got to move...

  16. 21.6C and 24.5C with sun, Surely better and less boring than 17.9C and cloudy all day?

  17. Good piece of advice for anyone who doesn't like convective weather and thunderstorms: Move to east Devon...

      I don't know what it is with your area of east Devon- perhaps too far east of Dartmoor and too near the coast? You seem to miss out even when Exeter itself gets heavy convective rainfall.

      Ideal place to live, within sniffing distance of the cider makers Mmmmmmm

      Not sure how i missed these comments or if anyone will see this, but just after I said that an amazing CB shot up to my north! lol.. still died before reaching me though. I'm not sure either TWS maybe its just bad luck.. Think you might be right though. Even when there has been storms I've been somewhere else, or in an exam! lol.

      Yes there are some (non-weather related) positives to living here I guess!

  18. today takes the biscuit in a year that takes the biscuit for fartlessness..

  19. Agree with that Harry. On another note last night I had a dream that we had thunderstorms and I slept through them!

  20. Very unusual indeed, NW Wales now, Aberdaron 72mph, Valley 62mph.. Meto Warning for Gwynedd and Isle of Anglesey for gusts of 65-80mph!! July anyone?

  21. Pretty wild down Sidmouth sea front.. like a tropical storm with sweeping heavy rain and very strong winds.. cars stopping right where the sea was coming/blowing over quite spactacularly to get drenched.. lol

  22. First MetO severe gale advisory of the year... on July the 15th

  23. showers/weak Tstorms to my west + ones I found on a 'mini stormchace' dwarfed by storms further north, and these again dwarfed by insane storms moving into Germany! :O

      Indeed crazy storms in Frankfurt right now.

      Aye, those homegrown storms over south-west England often pale by comparison with those further east!
