May is in and May is out This is the time to cast a clout Our grandmothers told us We must not flout The old ladies knew what they were about But 'how can May be in and out' you doubt Well it has to be in, or it couldn't be out.

Hi all Wave Just chat. I am chuffed to bits regards the "rain radar" site that we use, both for its detailed radar coverage and particularly their forecasts which have outperformed the official met office forecast in accuracy over the last year or so. I have noted for some time this has been the case. The three times a week forecast that I post, I copy from the official met office web-site. Being an enthusiast, I am often viewing web-site chat, where enthusiasts like me, along with experienced professional weather scientists are sharing views & so on. The official met office is not short on their expert scientists, the best in the world, but appears to fail to monitor the regional forecast interfaces. So, the commercial weather sites, who for most part, obtain their raw info from the official met office just the same, appear able to communicate the data with better expertise. Getting good communication is so important on any science. Is the ship being spoilt for a "hapeth" of tar? I will continue to post on here from the official web-site, but will add from other sites when needed.

Hi all Wave I will post the official detailed area met forecast in the morning as usual, but in contrast to the very dry weather recently, the rain belt that crosses us overnight tonight, brings a week-long westerly airflow, of mixed periods of wet & dry, mostly mild, breezy sometimes too. That about sums it up right into next weekend.

Hi all Wave Higher pressure than was originally being forecasted last week means that we will be most unfortunate to get much wet Sunday & Monday. Thereafter a dry & warmer picture looms for next week. Happy Happy

Morning all Wave One word comes to mind for this weeks forecast. DRY! Regional Forecast for West Midlands Headline: A dry, fine and warm week to come. Today: It's a bright start to Sunday with some decent spells of sunshine. Staying dry with some fair weather cloud, before it melts away later as drier warmer air arrives from the continent. Feeling warm in the sunshine and light winds. Maximum temperature 20 °C. Tonight: It will remain dry into this evening and overnight as skies remain clear. Some patchy cloud will push in from the west by dawn but it will remain mild. Minimum temperature 11 °C. Monday: It will be a bright start to Monday although high cloud will turn the sunshine hazy at times. This will break up later to reveal some prolonged sunshine. Feeling warm. Maximum temperature 22 °C. Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday: Remaining dry through the rest of the week with some decent spells of sunshine and light winds making it feel warm.
