Re: Possible Autumn Break 21-25 March?

its been a never ending pattern of "cry wolf" groundhog day with the weather for many months, to be honest I can't see that pattern changing or why I should take any notice of it this time around.

I'll see it when it happens!

Re: Possible Wild Weekend Feb 5-7

So tell me, why are we supposed to take any notice of any forecasts when they are so inaccurate? ..as are the models I predicted last night this would follow the pattern of every other system this season, and the experts (on other pages) insisted otherwise. It truly gets to the point that I have no ...

Re: Possible Wild Weekend Feb 5-7

now that the severe warning area has moved east, it will probably storm here shortly

I think that's been the only forecast that's been predictable

its been a summer of constantly preparing for the monster storms and deluges that never came!

Re: January 9-16: Warm to hot, with the odd shower

quite a few rumbles around today and a couple nice ones when a cloud came over dumping small hail late this afternoon. they seem quite shortlived, before a new one brews - are these being fueled by the sun or will they hang around after dark tonight? - as always it would be nice to see some lightnin...

Re: Finally a storm outbreak first week of the New Year??

so much for the forecasted "storm likely" overnight...there was nothing.

Whilst the rain was welcome, I haven't heard anything other than a few rumbles in the distance yesterday.

I don't hold hopes for today either, but would be happy to be pleasantly surprised.

Re: Finally a storm outbreak first week of the New Year??

hmm....well that was all very dissapointing.

I really miss nights like these where its warm and still and you could sit outside and watch the lightning - so long ago since that happened!
