The coffeegrinder and C8N will be there for amusement as well as the ZS110 by popular demand! Oh, the Mercury 705 for the beginners group test, and possibly a TAL1 if L'missus finds one cheap enough second hand. Plus as much EP's and realated toot as I can throw in the car. Maybe a tent and whatnot, a couple of beers...

Is 4 scopes enough for one night??

NOOOOOOO!!

BBC Weather month ahead

Monday 3rd to Sunday 16th September 2007

“Summer is over - here comes Autumn.”

Gradually the high pressure will loosen its grip, and as children return to school, so the rain-clouds will start to gather again.

The high pressure will be last to retreat from southern areas, so some September warmth may hang on across southern England. However by mid-month, it will be mostly breezy and unsettled again.

It appears that I'm bringing cloud. Hot off the press - I really hope that they are talking their usual rubbish,

Quote from Metcheck

Sorry to say it, but this week does in fact signal a large shift in weather patterns from a blocking high, to a transient system with unsettled weather pushing in for the end of the week.

The difference this year with the placement of the high, compared to previous years, is that it's stubbornly stayed out to the West of the UK. This has allowed a somewhat cooler airstream to push in around the top of the high.

During this week, so weather fronts continue to slip down from the North-west. They will weaken as they push South-east bringing nothing more than cloud and patchy drizzle to Western and Central areas from midweek onwards.

It's from Thursday, where a deep area of low pressure pushes its front South-east across all areas which breaks the back of the high. A much cooler airmass will spread South across the UK in time for the weekend. After this, we look out West to see further unsettled weather pushing in for the remainder of next week.

So, as Summer 2007 draws to a close, there is only one word to sum it up really... pants.

Hm, I was having a look at the met office's predictions for the weekend up 'ere and while Thursday looks (sort of) promising, Friday is rain and cloud ;) but Saturday should be brighter. Make of that what you will. Either way, I'm just glad to be getting out here for a night!

Has to be said Ant, but any forcast that summerises it as 'pants' does't exactly make me think it was written by a professional meteorologist!
