Winter Preview & Summer Review



[font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif]A couple of long range forecast related items to talk about today, as we've released our winter preview and also our summer review...[/font]

[font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif]Starting with the summer review, we know that our long range summer forecast didn't go to plan this year but we've never hidden away from that fact. We made an early announcement to let people know that it wasn't going to be as expected way back in June, and following on from that always intended to closely review the summer patterns to see what we could learn from the forecast.[/font]

[font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif]As part of that we wanted to share our findings with you all, so Stewart Rampling (our long range forecaster) has put together a video reviewing how the summer panned out overall, and looking at where the forecast went wrong, along with some of the areas it actually went right. You can view the video here:[/font]


[font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif]Moving on, we're now closing in on Winter and although there's been a lot of hype about snow, the next ice age, months of sub-zero temperatures and so on - the truth of the matter is that at this stage it's too early to know what will happen from December to February. Our normal [url="http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=longrange;sess="]long range forecast[/url] (updated monthly) covers the next few months, but our full Winter forecast won't be issued until later in November.[/font]

[font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif]There are some early indicators that can be looked into at this point though, and this is why Stewart has produced his Winter preview - this [b]isn't a forecast[/b] but does look ahead to winter, and Stewart gives his early thoughts on some of the factors he thinks may shape the UK's winter weather this year. You can watch the video here:[/font]


[font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif]That's about it for this blog entry - we'll be re-opening the winter area on the site on the 1st November, with (among other things) the return of the Santa Shaker in our Christmas forecast. More on this over the next few days though..[/font]
