Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

Recommended Posts

Worse thing about the excitement with the potential being revealed and the high number of visitors to the MOD thread is the number of Wind Up Merchant posters who start appearing with their one liner comment, or questions feigning ignorance,or suggestions that people should shut up about things that have been running gags among those who keep life in the forums and keep them going at those times when there is nothing to be excited about and the WUMs are nowhere to be seen.

my main gripe is the lack of talk about the next few days whatever the weather its always the longer term mostly unreliable timeframe is concentrated on.  

Would be great to have more current forecasting within say the next few days and you don't get that on the regional forums as its more just uneducated like myself.

 

be great to have a model thread for just a five day period then a long term model forum for post five days.

I've been reading about the bloody squirrel for 6 yrs. Find a new joke for God sake.

Actually I disagree with that. There are many quite knowledgeable folk on the regional forums who don't post in the MOD thread for their own reasons and thus interesting and informative discussions do take place without the personal and irrelevant rubbish to which the MOD thread is so prone.

Has this turned into the "Slag off the mod" thread? I'm sure it's "Model moans, ramps and banter" thread!

It's conversations like the above that bring this forum down, not the conversations in the mod thread.

At present it looks like the colder air to our East will, after a slight nudge Eastward, then push back West once more.:)

But it wont.

The clues are right the way through the thread, Thursday and Friday now a none event in the main, fully expecting the following 7 days to be an equal none event. The truth lays between the models, the information missed in the main due to snow blindness.

Comments about the squirrel are generally accompanying posts by some of the most informative posters on this forum.

I'd rather read their posts about the models including the comments on the squirrel than i would read one liner posts complaining about what  those posters are including in their posts...

 

It's had its day, move on. It was quite humorous for a time now it's overdone.

Nice example of the type of wum I was talking about just moved across from the main thread by the Mods :)

Juicy charts looking more like winter 2005-06 at last.

This winter has had one thing in common with that so far as its been the driest winter since 2005-06.

Many of you talk of great cold with easterly with -8 ( 850) , but to me this is not cold , not real cold . From an easterly we should be getting the cold we used to have i used to see 20 yrs ago , with 2m temperatures of -15 at night and -5 during day .

 

Not impressed so far at all

Just keep watching how many times the word downgrade appears on the model thread starting Saturday lunch time.

I don't think you're contributing anything by making silly comments like this.

Anyway, the outlook looks unremarkable for this part of the world. Easterlies are usually crap unless you live in Kent or Essex.

Surely the potential of retrogression of the high to Greenland is remarkable to all? :pardon:

Wind Up Merchant...someone not looking to make a real contribution to the thread but who instead seeks just to make a nuiscance of themselves by posting something banal

The word easterly sometimes needs quantifying. If you look at the EPS means out to day 14 this evening then yes there is an easterly component from around T144 out to T240 but it's in an enclosed anticyclonic circulation so not that cold and thereafter as the high weakens and sinks SW the wind backs and eventually ends up from the SW with near average temps.
