    Not only that but his latest Press Release from earlier this week applauded himself on his great November Forecast. Remember the Viscious Dartboard Low and the 3 other main Storms and that North Sea Storm Surge, well that was legendry.

    News Release 1st /2nd Dec 2008

    With extra publicly released detail of timings of storms on Web site and below

    Weather Action warns of Severe December weather with details of storms and cold snaps using new breakthrough in forecast technique; and bets on Snow at Christmas "Bookies could face big losses this Xmas" says Piers Corbyn.

    Piers Corbyn of Weather Action long range forecasters smiling after their widely praised successful detailed long range forecast of the first major winter blast this season** - in late November - now warn of continuing "more ferocious" stark changes this December and have issued a detailed forecast which predicts a number of major storms and cold spells through December with timing down to details of a day or two.

    Piers and colleagues have placed bets of about £1,5000 with William Hill and Coral for snow at various locations on Christmas Day and stand to win many thousands if they are correct.

    Piers whose record of weather bets is second to none* said: "We have just made a breakthrough in our 'Solar Weather technique of long range forecasting - called SWT25 - and are 75% sure there will be snow in many but not all locations offered by boookies this Xmas, and we have a fair idea of where the best bets are likely to be". (*eg as reported on the QED programme about Piers Corbyn amd Weatheraction 4 July 1996, and subsequent monitoring)

    The public summary for free circulation of WeatherAction's December forecast - key points announced at Press Conference 28Nov (details below) is:

    Dec 08: Severe weather with Stark changes. Storms with damaging gales, deluges and floods separated by cold interludes with snow.

    Xmas eve - Major storm; Xmas day – Snow.

    The full (6page) forecast includes details of WeatherAction Dec 08 long range severe weather warnings which include stormy spells .

    Four storm spells released to the public and posted on www.weatheraction.com :

    around 2nd-3rd, 6th-8th, 23rd-24th and 30th-31st December .

    Rain may appear as snow/blizzards in some locations in some of these storm periods (see full forecast)

    Important note on timing detail: In accordance with WeatherAction standard description in full forecasts these timings are 85% confident if the events occur and there is a 15% chance that the listed events will occur in the wings of an extended time period of one day either way. These timings are for the main frontal activity in Ireland & Britain so for storms systems coming from the West Ireland and West Scotland get hit before Eastern England. For timing check purposes the 3.5deg East line is taken unless otherwise stated (ie approx Torquay - Bristol Channel - Colwyn Bay - Solway Firth - Scottish Lowlands - Moray Firth).

    In more 'experimental' TRIAL detail for these particular storm systems timings are:

    2-3 (+/-1day)

    6-8 (+/-1day) This is a double hit window with likley two storms 6th (+/-1day) & 8th(+/-1day)

    23-24(+/-1day) This is double hit window with likley two storms 23rd(+/-1day) & 24th(+/-1day) so they may also merge into one larger storm.

    30-31(+/1day) This may be a double hit with firstly 30th(+/-1day) then a stronger storm 31st(+/-1day)

    "There are details of other of storms, gales, flood threats and snow or blizzards available in the full 6 page forecast via www.weatheraction.com . Four of the six largest storms this December should occur in these time windows and two others in two other time windows in the full detailed forecast" said Piers

    The essential weather type development December 2008

    December 2008 will have a number of periods of notably powerful low pressure storm systems attacking Ireland, Britain and Scandinavia on dates generally predicted to detail of one day by WeatherAction’s new SWT25. These stormy spells will be separated by colder quieter spells with Northerly winds. The jet steam is mostly shifted South compared with normal this December.

    © Weather Action™& Piers Corbyn™ © accept no liability for any loss howsoever arising from use of forecast information. Application of forecasts is entirely at the user’s own risk

    Tomorrow sees the Start of the 2nd of 4 Very Nasty Storms, I know the one from a few days ago still has many of us clearing up downed trees and broken fences, but hey this one should be more severe, Watch out for Frost and Fog this weekend though :D As thats what the proper forecasters are telling us.

    Can we now put to rest that this guy is a complete fraud case, believe nothing that comes out of his organisation, a money making machine that churns out complete trash.

    I wonder if he'll move the goal posts like he did last year and the year before..

    Mind you.. I think those dates pretty much cover the whole of december so he may or may not get something right..

    Give or take a day or two.. :D:D

    There never seems to be any 'ordinary' weather in Piers Corbyn's forecasts, it's always an extreme of one sort or another.

    He might have a bit more credibility if his forecasts contained terms such as

    ' a little below/above average' or if every area of low pressure wasn't a major Atlantic storm.

    The irony is one day he'll predict a tornado to hit the UK, only for Piers to be the only guy sucked up into the skies and to never be seen again.
