    The old thread seems to have mysteriously gone somewhere. BBC forecasts looking towards the weekend on Thursday which picked up Sunday's rain (still on course) completely failed to identify Friday evenings rain. Given it was very heavy stuff and went on for several hours, you'd have thought they might have seen it coming.

    There was a 'Poor Short Range Forecast' thread, which was not specific to the BBC. I suppose you could always add this to the BBC thread, if deemed more appropriate.

    I appreciate what Pit says, but Saturday afternoon/evening/nights rain did affect the southern half of the UK for some time and I would have expected them to be picking up on something of this scale by Thursday. The Sunday forecast, was of course, spot on.

    Thursday night's forecasts for the weekend from the BBC were poor. I was in Leeds over the weekend and Saturday was supposed to be sunny all day with Friday's rain clearing Scotland - but it rained in the morning and the sun didn't come out until mid afternoon. Today was supposed to be dry until late afternoon, but the rain pitched up by late morning.
