  1. "Outlook for Saturday to Monday: Unsettled on Saturday with rain and showers, easing later. Wet and windy in the northwest on Sunday, brighter and warmer elsewhere. Patchy rain moving slowly southwards on Monday." Is patchy rain really going to move south on monday?

      Probably moving South over more N/NW areas depending if the cold front is into those regions by then.

      Summers over time to put the garden furniture away that I never got out :(...

  2. spring has sprung today! lunchtime run along the canal, the sun felt warm the air smelt fresh. Lovely!

      Drizzling here.

    3. Mokidugway


      Fresh drizzle ??.

    4. Milhouse


      Much softer air now compared to earlier in the week now that that piercing wind has gone.

  3. I don't mind a taste of spring but please let's not spend our "high pressure" allocation too early like 2012.

  4. splendid spell of summer weather and set to continue for a while...i would prefer it to last until september but that's a bit greedy. Quite a turn around from the poor outlook a couple of weeks ago.

    1. Milhouse


      Indeed it is a very nice outlook. Not always warm for everyone but at least it will be dry.

    2. Eugene


      Well GFS 06Z is now moving towards GEM 00Z, ECM 00Z and NAVGEM OOZ in a retrogressing high to our NW

  5. Last two weeks of june will be the best of summer. How do i know? because i'm abroad. Who needs models?

  6. another traditional cold, wet may? joy. I think the "below average" junkies are going to have an enjoyable month or so.

      No good for cricket thats for sure. Anything below 15c feels chilly when out fielding.

    3. Eugene


      Probably as much fun as the warm junkies are having over this dire weather this evening

    4. IanR


      may is a month of variables anyway, cant see it being as cool as april overall . but surely we must be in line for a below average, its been almost consistently above since last the july heatwave, it was some kind of changeover

  7. is there going to be a Netweather spring forecast?

      that sounds right now i think about it.

    3. Don


      Well they used to do a long range forecast every month using the CFSv2 model but they haven't updated this since October.

    4. karyo


      I want GP to come back!

  8. GFS 00Z - "bank" please.

  9. Today is officially "JMA day". The GEM is old news, now.

      As soon as it stops showing cold it'll be ignored again

    3. Dancerwithwings


      And don't we all know it.

    4. Mapantz


      I have 4" of daffs poking out of the ground. I know it's not JMA related, I just wanted to get it off of my chest hehe

  10. i'm still waiting for that zonality that Ian Brown was predicting and getting slated for......oh wait....

      You carry on waiting and I'll carry on looking for a forum that Ian hasn't been banned from for being a pain in the arse.

      LOL! I notice he hasn't posted for a few days,hmmm.

      Summer Sun

      He hasn't logged on for a few days let alone post

  11. very pleased to read Ian F's update from the METO in the MOD this morning! really want some cold, snowy weather this winter (esp.christmas) - note i said "winter" not bloody spring.

  12. Given what the express printed last week i would find it deeply amusing if (a la GFS) we got close to some record breaking mild weather next week! Would they report it?

    1. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      Record breaking warmth as UK baskes in mild December or something like that. I bet a certain person will be worried

      They'll probably end up blaming their failed forecast on either the EU or immigrants, as per usual.

  13. 2603 hours to go until spring.....

    1. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      or 15 and 1/2 weeks

  14. blimey...that radar is looking lively! glad i went back for my coat when i left for work this morning...

  15. September and the MOD thread is already a car crash. Expectations are absolutely astonishing. it's going to be really good viewing over the next few months! i'm just waiting for the first euro high chart in FI to be posted....

      I could post a chart from 29th December, from CFS... But Friday evening should be for chilling. ;)

      Expect more flamewars. The GFS and UKMO are disagreeing with each other.... at 3 days out. Jeez :p

      captain, miss your triangle of doom wallbash! gone now

  16. extraordinary levels of expectation growing for this winter.....it's going to be a hilarious ride, that's for sure.



      Yep, but not for Mr Holmes...

    2. Gaz1985


      Its the same every Autumn but some people never learn and get too excited with charts months away.

    3. karyo


      The excitement is everything!

  17. GFS 06z = BANK!!!! Come on 06Z operational, make this your one run of the year that luckily picks the pattern!

  18. the least convincing breakdown since Ian Beale on Eastenders?

  19. looking forward to the "i told you this summer would be cool and unsettled" posts which will appear if August is rubbish....

      Only thorn in the side has been the cool days with low cloud (esp early June) and that the most unsettled weekend of the summer was when I got married!

      Overall its been pretty damn decent - so far.

    3. karyo


      There are negative people and people who don't like the heat! Don't confuse the two!

    4. Bobby


      maybe one of those 'some people have an agenda' may be you also? its only the weather, no need to get worked up over it

  20. what on EARTH is going on at Trent Bridge? it could only happen to England,

    1. Gordon Webb

      Gordon Webb

      I know I've seen it too many times , only England can Turn an almost 100 run lead into a 60 run deficit bloody idiotic

    2. Scorcher


      Only last year another number 11 managed 95 against England too!

    3. Bishop Brennan

      Bishop Brennan

      All part of the ups & downs of being an England cricket fan!

  21. Off to Sri Lanka tomorrow for two weeks. Hope the weather improves here for those (like me) that want something decent. On my return i will be scouring the CFS for charts showing a December Euro High and PM'ing them to Purga on the hour, every hour.

      agree eugene, what a ridiculous status, as if anyone is going to take CFS 6 months away seriously anyway

  22. ECM 12z = "bank" please

    3. Thundery wintry showers

      Thundery wintry showers

      Indeed- would be a pretty dramatic turn-around for next Sunday!

  23. Tonight's ECM obviously hasn't read the model thread over the last two days...we'll see 20c on the south coast before we see snow again

      Pharaoh clutchstraw is a great name for you, better not check ECM 00Z OP this morning, note to yourself dont believe outlier model runs in the future :)

    4. CongletonHeat


      god you're boring eugene

  24. Fed up with persistent low heights around Greenland? simply wait until "summer"....

    1. Sprites


      You have really nice eyes pharoah.

  25. please, please, just for once, let the 06z be correct!
