In lieu of Rob giving us his roving reservoir reports, I can say that I've seen Thirlmere and Booth Wood Reservoir up close in the past few weeks, and both were full to the brim.

(looking at UU's reservoir levels, it does look like northern reservoirs are above average for the time of year, whilst Dee/Vyrnwy levels a little below. Nothing to be concerned about, though)

Not been over that way for a bit now, but that's good.

Flowers out on Lark Lane. They were actually coming out about ten days ago. They're not even daffodils, it's mad.

Yesterday felt like a typical February day: blustery but energetic and invigorating. Today felt more like late March than early-Feb. Unnaturally spring-like. I have to remind myself that it's still technically winter.

It's forecast to be beautiful here on Sunday.

Sunny, warm and barely a breeze so it's a busy day in the garden planned.  Raised veg beds to be built and Paul wants to mow the grass ☺️

The -5 to -20 sounds brutal enough, never mind the -30. 🥶

Crosby recorded -17c in December 10 with temps a degree or two colder inland.

It never felt that much colder than, say -5c

theres a point after about -10 where cold is cold. you dont feel the difference of -15 and -30 the same way as +15 and +30. to me anyway

and its a dry cold here too, not a damp humid one like in the UK. which makes a big difference

It's more a case of the nasal hairs and the membrane of the nostrels' interior that's reacting to a combination of cold air and (usually) relatively low humidity. I've only encountered it in the north of Sweden and occasionally here in Tallinn when it's not so moist - and it usually only hits when you go past -20 but yeah it's a weird-as-fuck feeling - and I like it ;D

I'm not sure it was even that long ago. It was unseasonably warm definitely. We kind of hoped at the time it was just a fluke. That said, I didn't notice any flowers blooming ahead of schedule.

Been over to West Kirby today, loads of small yellow flowers popping up. The gnats are out too.

My dad has a cousin who lives in Medicine Hat but spends a fair amount of time in Winnipeg, says the cold can be horrible with the wind, regularly -30.

It's quite pleasant out there. I just went for a walk around Sefton Park. Sunny intervals and 9c, which is shorts weather for me. A few plants showing themselves. Buskers, dogs galore. Lovely. Roll on spring.

Putting my nerd hat on, this bit is wrong:

Quote
In October 1987, BBC weather forecaster Michael Fish told viewers not to worry about strong winds that turned out to be the worst storm southern England had experienced in 300 years, just the day before it happened.

It's one of the most misrepresented events I can think of.

Fish said that a woman had called in to say she'd heard a hurricane was heading our way.

There'd been a hurricane (Floyd) battering Florida at the time, and he assumed this was what she was referring to (and probably narked, thinking of the erroneous cliche about us getting America's weather a week later). As the hurricane wasn't heading to the UK (and it's practically impossible for a genuine hurricane to reach the UK, given 'hurricane' is a term for a storm with specific characteristics) he said we shouldn't worry, because there isn't.

He did go on, in that forecast, to warn of strong winds from a normal storm.

As it happens, the UK storm intensified rapidly and unexpectedly and did produce hurricane-force winds. But, given the dumbing down of the news and the general hysteria of the print media, nobody bothered to correct people who created the false narrative that Fish had got it terribly wrong because we'd been hit by the hurricane he said wasn't coming.

I studied this storm just two years later on my training at the Met Office College. Two additional things to take into account:

1) the storm was gaining strength in the Bay of Biscay and normally the track would take it through the channel and across North France.

2) in the critical 24 hours prior to the storm hitting the UK, it was said that French Air Traffic Control staff were on strike, so vital observations that would have given a heads-up as to track and intensity were not made, therefore the Met Office in the UK was under the false impression that things were nowhere near as bad as they were - can't forecast what you can't see.


I remember the actual forecast on the day. Fish was stitched up. The media here love a fall guy. Just love having someone to blame and kick. Fish has been battered ever since.
That's taking punnery to a new scale...

You should've seen me last summer when it was dead hot . I had a wet sarong wrapped around me head and a linen Indian shirt on . I did get funny looks when I was dipping the sarong in the fountain in Sevvie park.   ;D

None of this really matters in the end. None of it. Everything is utterly pointless. Even football. Nothing whatsoever really matters.

I studied this storm just two years later on my training at the Met Office College. Two additional things to take into account:

1) the storm was gaining strength in the Bay of Biscay and normally the track would take it through the channel and across North France.

2) in the critical 24 hours prior to the storm hitting the UK, it was said that French Air Traffic Control staff were on strike, so vital observations that would have given a heads-up as to track and intensity were not made, therefore the Met Office in the UK was under the false impression that things were nowhere near as bad as they were - can't forecast what you can't see.

That's taking punnery to a new scale...


It's just not finny.

A Tory, a worker and an immigrant are sat round a table. There's a plate of 10 biscuits in the middle. The Tory takes 9 then turns to the worker and says "that immigrant is trying to steal your biscuit"

A bit chilly...

Quote
Forecasters say the coldest wind chill ever has been recorded in the continental US as an Arctic cold snap freezes a swathe of North America.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said the icy gusts on Mount Washington in New Hampshire on Friday produced a wind chill of -108F (-78C).

I remember the actual forecast on the day. Fish was stitched up. The media here love a fall guy. Just love having someone to blame and kick. Fish has been battered ever since.

There is another option. Mr Ferguson organises the fixtures in his office and sends it to us and everyone will know and cannot complain. That is simple.
