    i think we are entering a period of record breaking number of storms across the UK. The one wednesday has us in the south on a direct hit. I am about to enter fatigue stations of storms

    Poor old Finistere and Morbihan on red alert again. Just like the Somerset levels folks. I'd be suicidal by now Posted Image These folks' properties must be almost worthless and uninsurable by now - what will they do?

    This is the first time I have seen the "Earth" site and the wind graphics. How are they produced? Are they just projected computer models or are they from soundings? I know, as a researcher, I should do my research but I want to send the link to a friend and would like to be able to explain the methodology. Thanks!

    Depends on which posts you read. Some say that Saturdays storm is the last for a while. Some say more next week. Some say some of them might be bad. Some say they will miss altogether. Time will tell I guess.

    I would say a computer error although with some of what the models are throwing out at the moment I see a wind like that being possible.

    It's based on the GFS

    Heavy rain here now in Cork.

    I think some are under estimating this one possibly due to storm fatigue.

    Looks rough here yet Met Eireann have just a yellow warning out

    Thanks! So that is projected. Have you a really good, reliable, real time satellite site you could recommend or link to - I'm still learning so please be patient!

    Hi JS

    I love Cork. I lived on the east coast of Ireland for many years (Bray). I've broached the issue and been given a smack on other forums, but what I've suggested is that these sort of events were actually pretty frequent when I lived there. Bray's seafront flooded, a lot. Boats got smashed in the harbour, from time to time. The seas were mountainous. I was on a ferry to the UK during the "Fastnet storm", they sailed. Maybe ME are less reactive, I don't know. I know folks are going through serious poo but haven't they always. I've a psychology background so I always question the human thinking - that make me seem obtuse, sorry. All of this is very complex and takes a lot of reasoning through...and as you will have seen, I'm stuck in the middle of it!

    This is a good one because it shows yesterday and up to the present time.

    I'm sure other people may be able to come up with some more.

     

    Never be afraid to ask questions there are some very knowledgeable posters on here and these are sites that I have picked up from them.

    I think Matt Hugo counted 29 low pressure systems since Dec 1st a few days ago so Saturdays is prob No 31

    Cool for the first one as I have a reasonable bit of German and scandi lingos, and I bet the others are useful too.

    The US National Weather Service's Global Forecast System keeps track of the world's weather. It's an incredibly valuable repository of information, but its data, shown in DayGlo charts peppered with numbers, isn't the easiest to visualize without a degree in meteorology. That's where the Earth Wind Map can come in handy. It takes the the Global Forecast System's data — updated every three hours — and applies it to a zoomable map. The result is a beautiful representation of the world's wind in almost real-time.

    Earth Wind Map is interactive. Click and drag the globe and you'll spin it in place, then wait a few seconds before the data appears in the form of snaking lines. Gentle breezes are thin strands of green, strong winds are long streaks of bright yellow, while the strongest currents are an angry red. Take a trip around Earth Wind Map's globe now and you'll be able to compare the light summer winds currently wafting across northern Brazil with the swirling gusts off the north-east coast of Japan, a hypnotic and colorful reminder of our planet's wildly changing weather.

     

     

    This supercomputer-powered site, called simply "earth," takes global weather mapping to a whole new level. Software developer Cameron Beccario built this visualization of global weather patterns, which updates ever 3 hours.

    You can turn the animated globe, and you can zoom in on particular locations. You can also see the earth from different heights, and use different overlay options (such as temperature and sea level pressure) to make the globe that much more beautiful.

     

     

    The map relies on data compiled by NOAA's Global Forecast System to update its global wind patterns every three hours, and OSCAR Earth and Space Research to update its ocean surface current patterns every five days.

    Details are thin on the ground on the sparsely-designed website, created by software engineer Mr Beccario, but it describes itself as a 'visualisation of global weather conditions forecast by supercomputers'.

    It follows an interactive global wind map, also created by Mr Beccario. Studied together, they reveal just how unpredictable our planet’s weather system can be.

    Ocean currents transport huge amounts of heat around the world, making them one of the most important driving forces of climate.

    Perhaps the most striking example is the Gulf Stream, which makes northwest Europe milder than other regions at the same latitude.

     

    The currents are generated from the forces acting upon the water like the Earth's rotation, the wind, the temperature and salinity differences and the gravitation of the moon.

    Early warning for heavy rain issued for Tuesday in the south

     

    Issued at: 1226 on Fri 7 Feb 2014

    Valid from: 0015 on Tue 11 Feb 2014

    Valid to: 2345 on Tue 11 Feb 2014

     

    Further spells of rain, heavy at times, and accompanied by strong winds are possible during Monday night and Tuesday. The public should be aware of the risk of further disruption due to flooding.

     

    Chief Forecaster's assessment

     

    Another area of low pressure and its associated fronts are likely to affect the UK during Monday night and Tuesday, bringing a further spell of heavy rain and strong winds, particularly to southern areas. There is considerably uncertainty in the track and timing of this low pressure system, but with ongoing flooding in some places, any further rain will only add to the problems.

    And tonight's UKMO doesn't look good at all

    How come David Cameron gone to 2 places so fast? Maybe he had a lookalike visited Somerset while the real ''he'' visited Olympic Park. Posted Image

     

    What a funny little world we are living in. If we get too much rain we get paralysed and if we get too much snow, the country gets into third world too. I really hope the South-West gets less rain than expected.

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
