Grrrr. worst forecast I've ever seen.

The UK isn't suffering from Climate Change, it's suffering from chronic Climate Failure. Closely correlated with Cardiac Failure.

Well I can't Effing believe this latest GFS output, now it has totally removed any CAPE and negative lifted index from my part of England for BOTH THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.

Originally this week was being touted as the week for heavy thundery downpours but every single day it's been downgraded exactly 18 hours before the valid period, without fail and we've had drizzle and overcast INSTEAD. I HATE ENGLAND. AND NOW THE SODDING NORTH EAST, NORTH AND SOUTH WEST SODS ARE GOING TO GET ANY THING THAT DOES HAPPEN.

I am never ever looking at any of these putrid charts or weather forecasts again. EVER. And I mean it this time. No more false raised hopes and disappointments. I can't take it.

Don't you know that's the way it works? If you really, really want something weather-wise and scour the forecast models, or the current radar as the case may be, it's gonna avoid you every time. It never fails. Like last night, I was watching the radar for all these nice, fat thunderstorms all around me, I could hear the thunder, the smell of rain was in the air, but nada. It all kept going around me, I swear, there was this nifty little hole right over my section of town...lol. The very minute I gave up to watch a vid, the skies opened up and it poured down rain, along with close-range lightning and hefty winds....lol.

Today, same thing. Promising stuff on the radar, but this time, I got offline and watched some TV. The sun was shining, no hope of a drop of rain, right? Wrong. 45 minutes in, pouring down rain. Rain, sweet rain that we so badly need.

In the winter, if there's any hope at all of getting any snow here, I have to avoid looking at anything weather-related for days ahead of any potential storm. Otherwise I'll get screwed 7 ways to Sunday, even if the models are forecasting outright blizzard conditions for my area. But if I kick back and don't even think about the weather (very, very difficult for me to do, in the case of the 2011 snow, this required a trip up north...lol), then the storm will come, the models fulfilling their destiny as they're supposed to.

So yeah, let's say you take up a different hobby for a few days, you'll be amazed at all the thunderstorms that'll be homing in on your house while everyone else gets screwed for a change. Try that and get back to us about what comes of it.

I am going to try out this technique. It really does seem like I'm cursed and that since I got interested in the weather, particularly storms and warm weather, both have diminished to near obscurity. This can't be a co-incidence. Whereas when I went to university to study something totally unrelated to weather there were some awesome storms including one that produced some tornadoes in my second week there etc....

Unhappy here because for Kansas weather, we haven't had much active weather in the past two months...which includes May which is usually the most active severe weather month we have. Constant hot and sunny days isn't much fun.
