Set in Stone

I think the weather station below is probably as accurate as the UK Met Office.



  1. From Don Keiller's comment on Bishop Hill's Blog:-

    "Met Office 3-month Outlook, 23 March 2012: "The forecast for average UK rainfall slightly favours drier-than-average conditions for April-May-June as a whole, and also slightly favours April being the driest of the 3 months. With this forecast, the water resources situation in southern, eastern and central England is likely to deteriorate further during the April-May-June period... This forecast is based on information from observations, several numerical models and expert judgement."

    April: 2012 had wettest April for 100 years, Met Office says "It has been the wettest April in the UK for over 100 years, with some areas seeing three times their usual average, figures from the Met Office show. Some 121.8mm of rain has fallen, beating the previous record of 120.3mm which was set in 2000."

    June: June on course to be wettest in a century: Flooding, storms and persistent showers have blighted the country in recent weeks putting this June in line to become one of the soggiest in 100 years.

    25 June: Spring is wettest in Britain for 250 years - England and Wales are on course for the wettest late spring and early summer for 250 years, experts said yesterday. June has just seen its fourth washout weekend and yet more downpours are forecast. Now it is feared combined rainfall for April, May and June will break the record of 13.2in (336mm) set in 1782 and be the highest since records began in 1766."

    Very good FE ..

    But surely, in the last "condition" the explanation should read "The Caravan Utilising Nomadic Tendency have been in the area recently" ? ... ;)

  3. Yes I've seen that Joe. They Met Office might as well be closed for all the use they are.

  4. CH. You mean Pikeys? There I've said it.

  5. If the Pickeys had been in the area the stone would still be their but the nice metal bracket and the Aluminum sign would have gone
