Apparently London & the Southern UK is set for torrential rain. In the last month they forecast this two times for London and nothing happened. My electronic weather station records Barometric pressure at 997 millibars with a forecast for getting brighter. A look out of the door shows just a cloudy sky, so I am going to ignore it.

UK weather forecasters are about as much use as chocolate fireguards, you wouldn't encourage your daughter to marry one!

Latest nonsense

Well it's only a "Be Aware" alert for the southeast so probably nothing more than we've had already.

We'll see Bernie. The real truth is that the UK weather forecasting establishment got such a hammering over the 1987 Hurricane, and lost so much credibility, that they now cover their backsides all the time. But they regularly go OTT. They seem to get it right with forecasts for the North, but regularly get it wrong for the South.

Doubt it, We have a Mediterranean type climate :) and what leave showbiz? ;) The UK forecasters could take some lessons though...

It's the Jet Stream that's giving us this miserable summer so far.
Still it loiters well south of the UK so dragging in the low pressure
weather systems from the east coast of American/Canada etc.
There's plenty of High pressure regions coming up from the south to
mid Atlantic but their being kept down so sweep over the southern continent
only. All down to Something called a rare double-dip in one of those nino
events we get periodically. I came across this bit of info in May and the
weather prediction for the UK was for a wet summer.

Strong winds up the Trossachs
And precipitation in the Firth, Forth, Fifth, & Sixth

I was in your area back in March, but I prefer my area a little more.

Misfit, Use your words....


It's hard following along with innuendos, words and solid statements make more sense to us "simple" folks...

What does "It's hard following along with innuendos, words and solid statements" mean?

Here, let me correct that. I understand my comma was not proper.

They predicted cool weather today but it was still very hot with temperatures around 28°C and a killing humidity. There were also gonna be some thunderstorms, but I think they're for tonight. The weekend is going to be rainy and cooler with temps around 19°C.

It's because of the humidity I find it hard to endure the high temperatures.
