The weather imo is a bit of a random walk.
At times it is predictable and sometimes it is unpredictable.
Climate change is even worse to predict.

I have been interested in the weather since school and now have a weather station and full
weather satellite setup but I don't forecast the weather.
The UK Metoffice need a 30 million pound pc just to get a lot of forecasts wrong. :thinking:

The best forecasts I have come across are from the NOAA Hurricane Center, these guys are very
accurate in their storm predications. :cool:

As to climate change....
Everyone bangs on about carbon dioxide......it's not even top as climate change gas.
The worst gas is actually water vapour followed by methane......heres the rub....
apart from aircraft trails, which actually cool the Earth we don't produce water vapour in quantities
that cause problems.
Then there is El Nino, the North Atlantic Oscillation and the Arctic Oscillation to take into account :wits:

My prediction for future summers....
All our hottest summers have happened close to either side of the Sunspot peak.
Go for hot summers a year or two either side of the predicted peak. :clap:

I unreservedly apologise about my prediction in March about the weather for the Summer being very good due to the cyclic "El Nino" effect.

The Summer weather was average at best :rolleyes:

However, it wasn't all bad.
I know forecaster's used different methods for predicting future weather patterns.........

But how do you use your bike for forecasting, Paul?

:thinking: :banghead: :callme:
