just a quick word to people about the weather next tuesday onwards.
seems like we have quite a northerly system brewing which will result in some very unseasonal temps for the time of year.
night time temps down to single figures wednesday onwards,still a lot of data to come in yet.
but i'll keep a close eye on it and let everyone know :wink:  bob.

What happened to this global warming we were promised?
If it rots compost it
If it burns burn it
If it is chocolate eat it

I happen to think something is odd about the British weather this year - I have always been a weather watcher, obsessively checking out the forecasts sometimes more than once a day :roll: .  

We should be having warm fronts sweeping up from the atlantic with the odd high pressure for but so far its all from a north & easterly direction which is very unusual for this time of year.  Even the gale force wind from the east over the spring back holiday weekend was freakish.
Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

May be the global warming stopped because the council's started recycling domestic waste and only collect the bins every fortnight.

Still can't see how much help a bit of domestic waste will be with the cost of supplying non recycle-able plastic bins whose lids fly about, dangerously in the wind, after the men have taken the brick holding them in place off  to empty them, the cost of treatment in carbon footprint probably exceeds creating from new.

I am in full agreement with limiting the waste on the world's natural resources but when I see some one who insists on all their food being organic, using their car for a journey, which (and I have proved it) is as quick even quicker to walk. I get just a teeny bit niggled.

As my 93 year old neighbour said, 'too many folk with not enough to do trying to make out they are doing something useful' He added 'and I am not going to stop smoking for any body'.

"We should be having warm fronts sweeping up from the atlantic"

I know green fingers is probably aware of this, but...

The gulf stream (which brings tropically warmed water to Britain) is slowing. That means less insulation from Britain's northerly position from the cool that comes from the north, thanks to an ever faster melting arctic circle (to do with currents and the influx of meltwater from the arctic and northern Russia, which makes it less saline and therefore harder to sink, and weakens the gulf stream accordingly). Some experts think it may even be ice free this summer, but almost definitely within the next few. It was also suggest a few years back that British average temps might drop up to a few degrees in the next couple of decades, meaning more severe winters and cooler summers.

So, according to the theory, GW won't make Britain warmer in the short term, but it will (and is) definitely shaking up the weather patterns. 'Global warming' doesn't mean 'UK warming' (at least short term) any more than 'world series baseball' means anyone else in the world plays it but Americans :)

I've been to Singapore, and compared to Queensland, the air feels so heavy. I thought the humidity was bad in Brisbane - don't know how people manage along the equator.

cheers,

Derek

High winds and heavy rain up north tomorrow

The storms - with winds which could reach 65mph across northern Britain - are expected to peak around midday.

The worst affected areas are expected to be north Wales and northern England, but Northern Ireland and southern Scotland may also be affected
