20 years ago today Michael Fish made what is probably the most famous forecast of all time, which was of course followed by the great storm. Hear his story about the forecast and the storm which followed in his first Netweather podcast.

    :unknw: That's a good point he makes about the sea temperatures around the UK, so therefore there is no way it could have been a hurricane but an exceptional storm it certainly was! I mean he may aswell have said there was a hurricane comming if he knew about it, because of course the winds at times were of hurricane strength and caused equally as much damage as any hurricane would have done anyway, the only major differance a hurricane would have had would be that there would have been a greater risk of flooding because of the huge amounts of rain a hurricane can dump! Poor old Michael must be banging his head against a wall by now, just cause of the amount of stick he recieved for that much edited forecast! :wallbash:

    have you listened to Michael on the podcast Paul set up. Listen to it and find out what he actually said and in relation to what?
