WELCOME to WeatherAction!
WeatherAction are World leaders in LongRange Forecasting
WeatherAction Forecasts are entirely different from all Standard Meteorology Efforts. They are for LongRange decisions in Britain+Ireland, Europe and USA - and other parts of the world and oceans at times.
They are not 'early' substitutes for short range forecasts. We may make short range comments but generally direct you elsewhere for short range forecasts.

The New Mini-Ice-Age / Wild-Jet-Stream Age is here and now
- and What Is To Be Done?
Events around the world ~this R4 period - Europe inc B+I, USA, New Zealand - reported on internet and WeatherAction reader-observers - and many put together by Craig on WeatherAction NewsRoom blog confirm WeatherAction specific forecasts & warnings both sides of the Atlantic especially for large / giant hail; and show specific switching to MIA / WJSA circulation patterns:
SEE "ALL HAIL THE MINI ICE AGE!"
IMPORTANTLY WeatherAction's general warning from two years ago of Wild jet stream / Mini Ice-Age conditions becoming more prevelant is being totally vindicated.
As I commented in my letter below to ICCC9 (International Climate Change Conferece in Las Vegas) and at and after Richard Tol's meeting in the Palace of Westminstrer July 9th The new Mini Ice Age / Wild Jet Stream Age is here and now.
It beggars belief that in the face of total failure of CO2 warmist models, predictions and policies and proven success of OPPOSITE scientific solar-based forecasting techniques, that anyone purporting to be an objective media reporter or scientist can continue to promote and "Believe" the cretinous anti-science and delusional nonsense of the fraudulent Co2-warmists pyramid of lies.
THE REASON of course is political and the result of well-oiled goebbels-esque propaganda brainwashing machines such as The BBC and Big Oil (Qatar) owned Al-Jazeera and the erosion in schools of evidence-based scientific approaches in favour of wooly politically motivated opinion-based drivel. The linch-pin of the delusion is the web of self-serving data manipulators, cherry-pickers, charlatans and fraudsters who call themselves scientists and have corrupted world academia from top to bottom.
We can give them no quarter and must call this whole system - and associated luke-warmist apologists - to account, destroy it - sweep it away, and replace it with a new enlightenment of accountable evidence-based science and politics.

July 9/10 REPORT on
Piers Reports: This 'Repeal The Act' meeting got a scholarly critique by Richard Tol of the uncertainties of economics and other effects of Climate change policies and some lively discussion including contributions from MPs. VIDEO by WeatherAction Team available soon.
The key message of Richard Tol's presentation was that there is no discernable effect on CO2 content of the atmosphere or world temperatures arisng from Climate Change policies. He pointed out in particular:-
- "Carbon Tax does nothing it just increases costs" and
- It is impossible to say that any changes in world temperature are due to Man's CO2 (or CO2 in general), any temperature changes being wihin natutal variability.
A number of contributors said the whole case for the economic meddling under the heading Climate Action (Climate Change Acts etc) was based of the deluded CO2 theory for which there was no evidence (but note this was NOT the subject of Prof Tol's talk he came to discuss economics of 'Climate Change measures').
Near the end I thanked Richard for his scholarly presentation and said the climate change measures debate was like the question of How many Angels can balance on a needle - which experts had now agreed was 99, but beggars the fact there are actually no angels and no needle. I said I was amazed at the narrowness of the CO2 'debate' because even if one accepts the delusional nonsense of CO2 effect (~needles and angels) then the idea that Man's CO2 flux rules over nature's (which is 24 x more) is insane. I suggested since termites produce 10x man's CO2 (or CO2 effect in their deluded terms) a better 'solution' to the (deluded) 'CO2 problem' would be for Obama to declare war on Termites.
I gave a short rememberence of Andy Wilson (see lower down this blog) and the essence of our message (letter link below) to ICCC9.
I used the giant globe (as first used at the Electric Universe Conference***, New-Mexico, March) to illustrate the observed and successfully predicted effects of solar activity on moving the jet stream (the arbiter of climate change) while CO2 protagonists admit under their models CO2 levels have NO EFFECT on it; and summarized the 4 key Mini-Ice-Age (solar activity driven) impact points (eg Polar vortex shifts, giant hail etc in letter to ICCC9 below) on the REAL WORLD.
Sammy Wilson MP rounded off saying that MP's constituents are increasingly suspicious of the
"delusional nonsense" of Climate Change claims and are angered by carbon taxes and charges imposed on their livlihoods - and we must keep up the fight.

July 3 Andy Wilson's Funeral and Wake
On Frid 27 June WeatherAction meeting held a minutes silence for Andy Wilson, a WeatherAction associate and keen supporter who tragically died recently after delays for a heart op.
Piers Corbyn: "I first met Andy in 1969 when I supervised him in my tutorial group when I was a post grad in Imperial College Physics and President of Imperial College Students Union. He always worked hard to understand not just 'know' physics.
His untimely death is a great loss and his zest for life and his application of science in all things was evidenced by the large number of attendees - probably 300 from around the world - at the Memorial service (Crown Court Church, Covent Garden) and gathering in The Senior Common Room Imperial College Sherfield building. His busy life encompassed many many things - most notably Rugby, repairing and maintaining old vintage vehicles, science and "all things Imperial". It was through science / Imperial public lectures and WeatherAction activities that I re-made acquaintance in the last 7 years or so and he gave support when it was most needed most importantly hosting events at the National Liberal Club on the Embankment when WeatherAction or the Campaign to Repeal The Climate Act held meetings in the Palace of Westminster.
He amazingly maintained, or led the maintenance IN GOING ORDER thereof, of the RCS (Royal College Of Science = IC Science) Mascot Jezebel - the 1916 Dennis Fire engine (above; thanks for photos Ella!) for years. I am in photo beside Steve Ball one of Andy's RCS Motor Club heirs who said that Andy's memory most go on and Jez will be maintained and that 2016 marking 100 years of Jez would be very important.
The other vehicle is Clem the RSM (Royal School of Mines) Mascot which with Jez also attended outside the Church service and both were driven back to IC with full complements of crew!
Thankfully although our forecast for N/W Br+Ir was on course the weather front we had expected (in forecast from 3 weeks ahead) to pass through largely on 3rd July was delayed by about 48 hrs ensuring an amazing afternoon for Andy. Well done Andy!
Donations in appreciation of Andy were suggested by family to "Imperial College Union (for RCS Motor Club)"
Piers Corbyn 5 July 2014
JULY 1+2 - WATCH WHAT'S COMING THIS MONTH!
JULY 2014 - A Tipping Point in Climate and Climate Wars. This will be a month to remember in many ways!
"Our July forecasts, just released, show remarkable 'Mini-Ice-Age/Wild Jet-Stream circulation patterns with extraordinary meanders in the Jet stream and very large scale patterns in the N hemisphere and consequent wild extremes and contrasts across regions of heat and cold, deluges and floods and relative drought. We expect this wild behaviour to be also expressed in the southern hemisphere. It is no surprise that record snow and cold blasts have already been experienced in Australian Winter - but hardly reported by Warmist media.
I strongly recommend subscribing to these forecasts for Br+Ir, Eu, USA (or RTQ for tornado/quake risk trials), or for 'THE-LOT' - All services (ie Br+Ir, Eu, Eu pressure maps, USA, RTQ + any specials) in one bargain package which give you the fullest possible picture of what the world is heading into.
"These more decisive than ever MIA/WJS patterns come just as systematic warmist tampering with World (and local) temperature data sets stands exposed fw.to/an9fKCY . This is something we suspected was going on 5 years ago but had no direct proof.
"The #ScienceDeniers and #WarmistFraudsters perpetrating these diabolical acts in the #Co2Con must be called to account and removed from public funding in all countries.
Evidence-based science must return."

It is like 'God works in mysterous ways' which of course may be true if you want to believe but equally something not happening (ie not warming) being taken as evidence of inherenmt warming by a 'mysterious CO2 processes' is insane but they (purport) to believe nevertheless --- BOB WEBER Thanks for your Brill words and regular incisive info blobs --- ALL (i) This blog ending soon going to another for weather period starting today 15th.

Russ- It doesn't have to be that way this time. Now at least there are many around the world who have the insight to see what's coming, so we have a chance at preparing and looking out for another. My hope is the masters of death from the nwo will have their control freak plans stymied by SC24 and we who know better, and from there build a future based on cooperation, not so much competition for resources, not UN style. The trouble is they want to reduce our options, restrict our ability to survive, all the while our awareness grows. So this time is vital - because what kind of world the future becomes depends on whether we stand up for our freedom and reject the warmists CO2 nonsense, and replace it with what we know works, as Piers has shown, a proper understanding of the sun-earth climate connection via his solar-lunar action technique. That is why we must give NO QUARTER. http://www.spaceweather.com/ featuring a blank sun, SSN=70. We're -20F below norm low now in summer "vortex"!

RUSS: there are only 3 options: it will get colder; it will get warmer; it will stay pretty much the same as now. Will the next 10, 20, 50, or a 100 years show this? The views of the warmists and the coolists are so widely disparate that they cannot both be correct, but I have noticed a trend in both arguments to keep pushing any change further into the future. Piers however has been pretty consistent. For the last 17 years there has been no substantial change either way ( data fiddling notwithstanding) . So where is the climate going? Permanent snow fields in the Scottish Highlands will convince me.

Quote: "Generally veg are all looking good, if things continue roughly in the same vein, we'll have had a good summer, trees also looking good." ..... Maybe we`d better enjoy all this fine weather before the big freeze starts around 2020? Just to remind everyone, that the Mayan calender furore of 2012, may well have been a portent of doom, just not immediately. No sudden catastrophe i.e. asteroid strike or alien invasion. Instead, they probably knew that that the interglacial we are in is about to end, and the good times (golden age) are over. The beginning of a new ice age really would be the end of this civilisation. The full blown effect could take a few hundred years to reach deep cold but the destruction (starvation), of humans may be over in just a few years. The signs are there. When we see the news that millions are starving across the world due to massive crop failures, that will be it! THE END! Until next time.....back to the stone age to start all over again.

Dull start, 14.˚C at 7.30, brightening up though and rising to 23˚ until about 1pm, after which the strong S'ly breeze got up and made everything much cooler under the returning cloud cover. Some light rain after 4pm, not as much as expected. Still 16˚ though by 9.30pm. == Regarding veg: had the first climbing French bean harvest from our veg tunnel today, a few weeks earlier than last year, couldn't possibly grow these outside, promises to be a bumper crop, also first big courgetts picking from under half cover with fleece. Up here we need every bit of protection we can get. Spring-sown broad beans beginning to set. Generally veg are all looking good, if things continue roughly in the same vein, we'll have had a good summer, trees also looking good.

BOB WEBER: Aye, took a look at that ICECAP site. Wonder if a repeat here will mean a repeat 'mild' winter in Western Europe, albeit with a another snowy one in the Scottish Highlands. I see though that the prediction is for the colder weather to be further east in the USA and begs the question of impacts over here too. Surely if Washington DC and the Eastern US big cities get freeze blasted the attitude to AGW will be affected.

Interesting trip down to Spittal of Glenshee yesterday via Breamar. We set of in beautiful warm sunshine but could see the cloud moving in from afar, and the further west we went, the darker it got and the rain was hanging over the mountains in great veils. We even managed to spot a patch of snow in a gully when the fog lifted sufficiently, but we didn't see much of the impressive scenery. It rained all night in Glenshee but this morning we awoke to brilliant sunshine with some clouds. As we drove back home via Kirriemuir, where temp was around 25˚C, the cloud began to thicken the further north we got, some rain at home and cooler here but still 20˚ and 14˚ by 10pm.

Joe D'Aleo from Weatherbell Analytics (with Joe Bastardi) has published several excellent articles on ICECAP.us, starting with http://icecap.us/images/uploads/HLN_Weather_Whys_July11.pdf where he goes into detail outlining an imminent drop in temps going into long-term, describing conditions much the same as Piers has predicted for years would arrive. Be sure to see Joe's July 12 article there called "Polar Vortex summer version prelude to brutal winter and potential major energy issues". Ave daily F10.7 solar flux (observed) per solar cycle: #19=139 sfu; #20=113; #21=135; #22=123; #23=122; #24=100. Odd cycles except #23 had more energy flux, and #24 so far has exhibited the least amount of energy flux in a solar cycle in our lifetimes. We've probably reached solar max, and hereafter we'll be going downhill with a lower solar flux expected until the minimum going into SC25. The SC24 ave flux/day will go below 100, maybe to 85-90, and temps will follow. Piers Corbyn was there first!

Back from self-imposed exile, now that the full moon has really arrived! On the 45th parallel in Michigan we've had a very cool overall summer w/some heat. The sun has been brillant for a week or more at a time this summer, but otherwise it feels chilly at times, temps going down into the 40's-50's at night often. We burned wood twice in July already for the first time in memory. Damn that polar vortex, damn it all to hell! We finally reached into the heat index range a few days ago, when much of the US southward and on the coasts have really felt that recent solar blast in addition to the regular summer insolation. The moon and the sun are practically 180 degrees out of phase right now, counteracting each other's influence, borne out in frontal and temp maps. The moon reached max south declination a few days ago, right after the sun's more active earth-facing side "peaked" in SSN @ 256, SF @ 201, now rolling off to the farside, revealing less active solar face; SSN=SF=145 today.

My potatoes are coming out in 2 weeks for winter storage, my autumn raspberries are cropping, I have had an enormous crop of broad beans. Brassicas of all types are thriving, runners and frenchies are producing a lot, daily now. As though this is a last ditch attempt at getting seed set to survive.

Cloud built up to bring a sharp shower around 6pm yesterday. Heard a couple of distant rumbles but nothing close. Morden got the full storm with thunder and lightning at around the same time. Cleared to give mainly overcast evening and with the warm air trapped, a warm night. Cloudy with bright spells and just had a shower - cooler than yesterday. Comments in Booker's DT column today over the BBC trust finding that model output is somehow scientific proof. A strange world when Brian Hoskins (on the Grantham payroll at Imperial College) can claim catastrophic warming with no evidence and Lord Lawson make observations backed up by empirical evidence yet Hoskins is found to be right. The good news is that this is likely to damage the BBC more and their time may be short given a recent survey finding the majority want the licence fee abolished at the 2016 review. Might need a Tory government to do it though and Call Me Dave doesn't look like winning with his LibCon policies.

9-12 July 2014 forecast review - mixed bag. if you got the front then you got it with some places recording 10c as max daily temp and 55mph gusts and there was rain but not the flooding type rain [that seems to have been in Europe or over the sea which according to the radar/lightening map they have been having a wild time-see Tour de France washouts]. My location we only got a few mm of rain no thunder and its been mostly humid hot and any 'intensification' has been of the hot humid type. The front from the east went from London to Hull but didn't move much further west while the Atlantic low hit west Scotland but never came east. There was a full moon no idea if that had any effect on it. So the prediction was generally right about thunder and cool conditions for those who got them but not in its intensity [which seems to have happened in Europe] or scope. 0.6 out of 1.0 which gives a cumulative for July of 2.4 out of 3. USA seems to have missed summer in some places?

I have to say that, in growing terms, this is one of the most rapid seasons for some time. Plums now ripe and falling off tree. Raspberries started mid June and the (supposed) autumn varieties are now producing fruit in mid July. Beefsteak tomatoes grown outside since late May are now ripening (first colour appeared 10th July), after being sown early March. 150 tomatoes from the February sowings already harvested. First outdoor cucumber harvested today. Courgettes already well into harvest. 12lb of broad beans for one 5m row harvest complete. We could seriously do with rain as it has been too dry for 6 weeks now. Mercifully, all the plants with deep roots can access the ground saturated over the winter, so are doing fine. The spring/summer has been very sunny, warm but not hot and nights have not been cold. Lots more of that please!

We've had very wet, windy weather in the Nelson/ Tasman region (South Island) in the last 48 hours. The R5 followed straight on from the R4. Temps have been a bit milder due to the northerly.

Overnight temp 9˚C, 15˚ at 7.30, great sunny morning, great sun all day, R5 or not, and it got to 25˚ by midday, which is really scorchio for us here. The sea breeze kept things reasonably cool though, so it was really like being on holiday. 16˚ by 10pm, real summer, including one horsefly, squashed. MO is now announcing rain for tomorrow night after another warm day, first rain from the Atlantic Low appearing on the radar screen.

Very interesting post by Piers above re polar vortex in the USA It is reported on "Ice Age Now" and they have an equally interesting piece about icebergs still around today on Lake superior! - amazing photo linked to it - they are going to name them after AGW "Scientists" which I think is apt.

Well, after my exciting day of weather system battle observation yesterday, today is very dull. Grey & overcast, the odd spot of rain but mostly dry with temp of just under 20 degs. Got to a toasty 25 degs here in East Berks in the end yesterday.

Quote: "We can give them no quarter and must call this whole system - and associated luke-warmist apologists - to account, destroy it - sweep it away, and replace it with a new enlightenment of accountable evidence-based science and politics." ........ Very fine words indeed my good man. With Lord Monkton and yourself on our side we can sleep soundly, at least knowing what lies in store, instead of having to rely on newspaper schoolyard whispers and so called "mistruths". The warmists have spun this web of deceit as close to a religious doctrine as possible, so that it is almost impossible to refute with logic and any future event can be blamed on mankind. 500 years ago, extreme eventa were blamed on Gods; now they are blamed on man himself. How ironic that the two doctrines are intertwined in such a way as to make it look as if God himself were punishing man for harming his creation. I need to get off this crazy roundabout before the 'playground spin' gets unbearable?

N'ly breeze continued, though at 13˚C 2 degrees warmer at 7.30 than yesterday, cloudy at first but then the sun came out and we had another splendid day with a max temp of 20˚, kept at that level by the ever present breeze, or else it would have got much hotter. Back down to 14˚ by 10pm, breeze has relented somewhat, but still present.

More and more real evidence is pointing towards and supporting Piers' view. I'm actually getting a little concerned. I mean we're still in early days and look what the above weather periods have done to majorly affect the UK. In my mind I have no doubt we're headed where Piers has told us, into a LIA....but I am concerned that its going to be a LIA at the very least.

East Berks has been a top spot for weather geeks today. The battle has literally gone on overhead. Long dividing line running north to south overhead. Dark, grey heavy cloud on the east, blue skies to the west. Temps back up again to 22 degs. The dividing line has edged back and forth all day, which has been great as I've been driving between meetings and not glued to my desk so have been able to watch it!

I think their (the BBC) moves to shut down debate will eventually backfire when more people begin to question why this should be if the science is settled and therefore should be easy to defend. If only that were true. It's more likely that people will subconsciously assume that it's self evidently true and that there's no more disagreement over the subject and that if their personal world doesn't match the predictions that this is localised and that 'everywhere else it is warmer'. There are other subjects that one is simply not allowed to question in public. Anything that cannot be questioned is almost certainly based on a lie, else debate would be allowed. Subjects that are beyond question should be treated with great suspicion.

Looks like a bit of a weather front battle going on over the UK at the moment. Fascinating stuff. Be interesting to see how far west the westerly moving low will spread.

Strongly perceptible change here, what with the stiff NW breezw blowing all day, 11˚C at 7.30. However, the sun was out all day, often in a brilliant blue sky and it got to 20˚ even in the wind, and quite a bit hotter in sheltered places on the farm. Anyone with hay ready for baling will have had a good day today. 12˚ by 10.30pm, feels like it will get even colder. == Steve in Fife: although I do enjoy the heat I'm hoping for a really cold winter this year to wipe out all the carrot fly maggots that survive when it isn't cold enough. For years 12 & 13 we were able to grow great carrots, this year's are a washout (or a flyout) already. Frost cleans a lot of things.

Russ in Derbyshire I can't agree more! I am only beginning to wear slightly more after reaching 61. I live (and work outside) in Fife Scotland but was born "darn sarf" in Gosport - been here since a child though. I couldn't go back - can only stand the climate in winter! so relatives have to wait till then! My wife is Scottish and agrees about heat. One of our best holidays was a cruise in July 07 to the arctic - Norway and Svalbard (delayed on sailing home by lots of sea-ice!). There was a heatwave in southern parts a few days later though - 27-ish in Gerainger! I always prefer winter - especially "proper" ones like 2009 and 2010.

July forecast, trundling along very nicely. Quite chilly this morning....and the BBC go on about how care homes can protect the elderly as summers get dangerously warm due to climate change....err ok. Looking at GFS and ECM models, they are hinting strongly at low pressure/trough dominating UK from Atlantic with some deep low pressure systems appearing/swinging in at low latitude ie that means Jetstream well south of norm. If you haven't seen July's forecast...get it...and be concerned as there are R5s and R4 periods ahead....and we know what that means....intensification.

11˚C at 7.30, a grey and unpromising start with fog rolling in off the sea, feeling cold and unfriendly. However, by 10am the sun was out and it got really hot - well, for our latitude -: 23˚ and we were rather happy with the NE breeze that helped us to keep cool (I don't believe I'm saying this). Huge & majestic cumulus towers built up further inland but it didn't feel as if rain was coming anywhere near us; watching the radar sequence though, there appears to have been quite a bit of rain over the Grampians. 15˚ at 10pm, nice balmy summer evening, MO is saying sunny tomorrow, maybe the R4 effect will be delayed.

Now let`s get one thing straight; I don`t put a fleece on walking frosty ground in January...got that? I love the cold and hate high summer with it`s humid nights, wasps and flies every time you unwrap food, and the Sméagol`s of the insect world `The Highland Midge`, uncontrollable levels of perspiration whenever you exert yourself beyond licking an envelope etc, etc. So it was quite a shock today when, after getting on a train at 7.30am in shirt sleeves and with a single bead of perspiration trying desperately to leave the confines of my anxious brow, but this was followed at 11.30am by my leaving the train in a downpour, with black clouds and a chilly breeze which could only be described as `hand stiffeningly chiily`. It stayed rather chilly for the rest of the day, even with the sun trying to peep through the occasional gaps between showers. A big difference from the past few days of heady heat-wave`ness!

And so it went on, sunshine & clouds & occasional showers during which it got a bit cooler, top temp got to 22˚ though, so we had a decent day, in fact, if the summer went on like this we would be quite happy; however… (voice trailing off as lips are sealed in public).
