« on: May 03, 2009, 11:50 »
My Lord, do you have any idea of the forecast temperatures for the last 2 weeks in May?

Warmer than the first two hopefully.  :wink:

Mean temp for May in this neck of the woods is 10 degC. Maxima in the second half of May should be in the region of 15-20 degC, with minima between 5 and 10 degC. Highest temp in the last 10 years here in May was 26.1 degC in 2003.

It's bloody freezing - this is doing no good at all for saving money on my heating bills

Did you not all see the Cloudspotting programme on last night?

Look up!

The cloud direction has switched from Northerly back to our standard Westerly so it's a bit warmer.

The cloud is one that lets steady rain down but it's broken, and above it is cirrus which shows that usually wet weather is on the way (due to the high-level winds it evidences). 

So fair to middling now, and middling to worse in a few days.

All right for you office dwellers. I have to cycle around in it with six dayglo kids following me like a flippin mother duck and her ducklings!

That may be good for the next few days, but not for predicting the last two weeks of May, which is what our friend is asking about.

Well, even the weather people can't get more than 3 days ahead with any kind of accuracy, they say! 

It's a warm El Nino year so should be a heap better than the cold La Nina time we've had for the last few years.  All that warm air does make a difference to us.  Wasn't 02/03 an El Nino time?

El Nino/La Nina really only have a tenuous, indirect link to UK weather. If you try to correlate it, you get a coefficient that is maybe/maybe not. OK, it makes a hell of a difference off the coast of Peru and Australia, but you couldn't blame our weather on it.

The atmosphere is chaotic, therefore it is impossible to predict our weather more than 4-5 days ahead with any accuracy at the moment. They have marginally more success with longer scale, climatic trends.

This is the best I can get from the BBC for the 18th-31st May:-

The pressure pattern for this period is indeterminate, there is no favoured outcome although there is some signal for high pressure to move in from the south at times.
At the moment, rainfall, sunshine amounts and temperatures look normal although it could get quite warm in the north.

Still confused.

"Changeable" is about the best I can offer. I think that's what they're saying.

I'd expect to be wearing what I'm wearing this week, or such as, for the rest of the month, really. So look at your ironing pile on Friday.

Mid-June is when I'd be getting my glad rags out, and not much before.

Cast not a clout, till May is out, remember!

True enough but I can always hope.

But it's lovely for getting the washing dry! I've dried loads and loads and loads of bedding in between the raindrops (double height extensions do add a great deal of (sunless) protection in the yard)

It got up to 18 Deg today, which is NOT cold, dear people. I work outside come rain, shine, sleet or flying ice, and it's lovely out there, even if it is a bit windy for child cyclists.

I like drying clothes outside but sadly I suffer badly from hay fever which makes it difficult this time of year :cry:

Well, I;m home again and that the weather was totally unexpected. That is apart from the first two days of showers. The sweat shirt and long sleeved shirts stayed in the case and I had to go and buy some shorts. Perfect suntrap in the new family area at the Daleside Arms.

Been nice, hasn't it? Did this last year, too.

Well, I have a suntan now, and had to put long trousers on to go out to work today, so am disappointed but there you go, now the weather is back to seasonal again at least I won't have to go and water the allotment this weekend, if it rains. I've had the heater on today, too!  And my buff, and gloves (when out cycling).
