The BBC reported Temperatures in Gravesend, Kent, nudged above 32C (90F), beating the previous high of 29.5C, recorded on Thursday, as much of the country enjoyed the sun. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-28361254 But wait.. The Met office Gravesend weather station is a little notorious as runs hot in what is the hottest part of the UK where there … Continue reading Not so Hot
UPDATE A potent series of storms have sprouted up in the west just as the earlier band ran out of steam. Northeast France seems to have a very nasty parcel of energy. ####### http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7V1-JvA0bQ AMBER WARNING Several areas of heavy, thundery showers will develop over England and Wales from Friday night before moving northwards during … Continue reading “Amber severe weather warning as storms expected for UK” on YouTube
A notably warm spring but with lots of cloud meaning little variability or extremes. The winter, apart from the endless rain, was also warm with little temperature variability with few frosts and few actual 'warm' days due to the constant cloud. In effect that is over six months of above average temperatures with no particular … Continue reading Watch “May UK Weather Summary” on YouTube
Piers made a rare appearance in the Independent on Sunday (IoS) on 8th June 2014 - albeit with an old stock photo. This is the relevant part from a near advert for the Met Office and neatly glosses over past or current failures; the biggest stick used to beat the Met Office? Climate change, sceptics … Continue reading Piers Corbyn in the Independent ‘so many degrees of freedom that any ‘forecast’ is meaningless’
Paul Homewood with ‘hard evidence’ that the Met Office’s, in ‘collusion’ with Newcastle University, latest projection/prediction of more floods is yet again total nonsense.
They appear to be stuck in a feedback loop where a super computer filled with erroneous assumptions can predict angels on a pinhead and that this then becomes fact.

The BBC report on the latest study by the Met Office & Newcastle University:
Global warming will lead to a significant increase in extreme summer downpours in the UK, a study suggests.
The Met Office and Newcastle University researchers say there could be five times the number of “extreme rainfall events” exceeding 28mm per hour, under extreme warming projections.
This would cause “really severe” flash flooding in many parts of the UK, according to the scientists.
However, they caution that this result is based on only one computer model.
Flash flooding in Britain has had devastating impacts on communities in recent years.
In Boscastle, north Cornwall, about 200mm (8in) of rain fell in four hours in August 2004 causing a 3m wall of water to sweep through the village.
In the summer of 2012, in Newcastle, the equivalent of a month’s rain fell in just two…

The Met Office Atlantic tropical storm forecast for 2014 is for 10 tropical storms between June and November, with a 70% chance that the number will be in the range 7 to 13. The long-term average over the period 1980–2010 is 12 tropical storms.
Specifically for hurricanes (storms with winds of at least 74 mph) the best estimate is 6, with a 70% chance that the number will be in the range 3 to 9; the 1980–2010 average is 6 hurricanes.
The most likely value for the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) index — a measure of the strength and duration of storms over the season — is 84, with a 70% chance that the index will be in the range 47 to 121; the 1980–2010 average ACE index is 104.

Reliance on stuttering, Warmist-promoted windpower may threaten electricity blackouts -- an ironic, economy-jeopardising echo of the UN-imposed darkness, which shrouds the IPCC's "Global Warming" data and analysis.Their computer coding's concealment amid Mediaeval secrecy -- in likely defiance of various Freedom of Information Acts -- makes them seem as if they have something to hide.Since their … Continue reading !!!
