WeatherAction March and April forecast accolade: "Raging northerlies over the UK according to latest GFS model output for next weekend with our High Pressure cell over us then retrogressing up to Greenland to shut off Atlantic systems. If only this was February and not late April. Snow possible as far south as the Pennines if this comes off. Great March and April fcsts Piers. Great work" - Comment 16 April, Steve Devine observer.

Piers Corbyn (April 12) Easter comments on prospects of War, Peace and the issue of ClimateChange - the possibility of Trump-Putin co-operation for peace - against the #FakeScience of so-called Man-Made #ClimateChange and for peaceful application of honest science on Earth and in Space. 

Spotless sun confirms WeatherAction low solar activity warnings of 7 years ago
AMAZING! Despite 12days of ; Mar 16-17,  eruptions, extreme weather thunder etc North Carolina USA, Europe (SE Germany etc) &  Confirm  R4 period 17-20th+-1d. See twitter feed @Piers_Corbyn and home page and weather blog.
Piers Corbyn says: "There is more to our WeatherAction 'Red periods' than direct visible data. Notice the sudden increase in SolarWind-Earth magnetic connectivity with that large increase in negative Bz late on 15th - about when Etna started. There were quite a few extreme weather events around world especially 15/16th and onwards to an extent on 17th in line with our R4 17-20th+/-1d."
The deep Low NE USA bringing snow and blizzards was well forecast by WeatherAction 4 weeks ahead in 10-13th and 14-16th March Weather periods in 45d (and 30d) USA forecasts.

Piers Corbyn News release on Whistle-blowers report that NOAA (USA National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration) manipulated "Global warming" data:- 

(Feb 6/7th, pic above)  "The revelations in Mail on Sunday (Feb 5th) and Daily Mail from Data Science, Climate and satellites Consultant John J Bates - an insider -  that NOAA manipulated data to show false warming are the death-knell of the Man-Made Climate Change hoax and has massive immediate implications. 
"These latest revelations confirm what we in WeatherAction and many other independent Climate Realist / Skeptic scientists have been saying for years. [For specific evidence eg that USA 'warming' and world 'warming' in recent years are 100% due to 'data adjustment', ie fraud, see twitter @SteveSGoddard & LHS of home page].

"The UN Climate Change Committee, the IPCC (Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change), must now be closed down.  President Trump is 100% right to announce intentions to defund this fraudulent operation and to terminate USA support for the delusional globalist de-industrializing corporate plunder of the Paris (2016) accords.
"All Anti-CO2 measures worldwide - such as the UK Climate Change Act 2008 and similar measures in other countries, must now be repealed. All the stupid measures and attacks on jobs and living standards that flow from them - such as Carbon taxes and surcharges, wind-farms, bio-fuels and the massive programme of dam building and consequent environment drowning and indigenous tribal wholesale ethnic-cleansing in Brazil - must be ended.
"There is no scientific basis whatsoever for the claim that mankind's CO2 has ANY effect on climate. The fact is that CO2 levels are an EFFECT of changes in climate (temperature) NOT A CAUSE   (see * *).
"The CO2 story is a fundamental ideological tool of the globalisation agenda driven by giant Wall-Street super-corporations and Big Oil (eg Qatar who fund AlJazeera, Clinton and ISIS terrorism) - who use the Climate Con to jack-up oil prices. This ideology will be destroyed as the anti-globalization anti-establishment wave and demands for accountability sweep the world.  All political parties must now start honest debate on the Global-Warming delusion and in the case of the UK:- 
(i) Undertake to end the deindustrialization of the UK which has been driven by the malevolent strictures of the Climate-Change story via for example the EUETS (EU Emmission Trading Schme). These strictures have not in fact reduced CO2 production but simply sent it elsewhere eg to India when the UKsteel operations and livelihoods in NE England were destroyed)
(ii) End the 'Climate Tax' on energy and thereby reduce all electricity bills by about 1/3 as handouts to so-called 'green' projects such as wind farms (bird killers) are ended."

16˚C at 7.30, surprisingly warm in spite of the N’ly wind blowing, mostly cloudy with a max temp of 18˚ with only occasional sunshine but brightening up in the evening, 11˚ only at 9.30pm, promising to be a colder night, MO forecasts a cold day tomorrow, this cooling in line with Piers’ forecast. == Peterg, my comment was more like joke before ash - I think these sayings were coined at a time when the seasons and weather generally were more steady and reliable, what with so much fewer flatulence producing cattle around :-)))

Lovely day yesterday with a strong breeze to keep it cooler. In fact a neighbour walking past commented on the wind. Today has been sunny but more cloud has built up resulting in a downpour mid afternoon - no thunder just a burst of heavy rain. Overcast but bright following in it. Paul Homewood comments on Torygraph article based on MetO claims that we would see hottest May day for decades but of course it didn't happen. A big week ahead as Donald finally decides on doing as he promised and dumping the Paris Agreement. Where he leads others will follow. Thanks for the sympathy Craig. Stepping out from an aircon office to face the heat can be a shock. Thankfully I am spared the underground and Electrostar trains have aircon.

With regard to the comment: Oak before Ash, how accurate is it? Here`s what BBC Nature Uk has to say: "According to records submitted to Nature's Calendar so far this year, oak is leafing first, with the first recorded observation coming in on 21 March. Ash leaves weren't recorded until 4 April. Ash has beaten oak only a handful of times in the last half century thanks to our warmer springs. However back in the 18th century, ash used to have a better chance of beating oak as springs were very different". The above comment relates to May 2011 incidentaly

15˚ at 7.30, more sun today but with cirrostratus clouds slowly moving in from and eventually covering the whole sky though nevertheless letting the sun through quite frequently. The SE’ly breeze was not as keen as yesterday so we had a good warm day with a max temp of 22˚, on the other side of the river Dee, on the south facing side it was rather hotter than that. Being on the hill that separates the coast from the Dee valley means that we have sea breezes, particularly in HP weather. 14˚ at 9pm. == Craig, thanks for the helpful links, I’ve bookmarked them an will look them up frequently to see & feel the difference between various dew points.

On humidity - I blame air pollution for that from traffic and industry. Makes it horrible in/near the towns and cities. Much drier and fresher heat in countryside and near the coasts.

Thursday and Friday were another couple of fab days with hot temps 23/24 deg. Yesterday lots of huge clouds moving in as the day progressed and very humid overnight, heard rain start at 6.20 a.m this morning some heavy showers atm high humidity and 13 deg at 9.33 a.m

Paddy in short dew point is how the weather feels. It's why a 10°C day can feel warm or cold (especially noticeable in the shade as late April showed despite feeling warm in the sun). Try this === === It's an airport so not the best but an indicator. Look at the other local stations too to get an idea. Often rain will miss the station but hit you and obviously UHI is a factor. We are about -1°C to -1.5°C cooler than my local station. You can also look at === === and === === you can change station closer to you. I just chose Aberdeen as a starting point. Watch a few similar local ish stations for a while and it gives you a fair idea of which weather stations are next to an AC outlet lol.

16˚C at 7.30, yet another very local record for highest morning temp this year. Although we had yet another amazingly sunny day with a max temp of 25˚ it was somewhat cooler in the strong S’ly breeze that beefed up considerably in the afternoon, that’s the trouble with living near the coast. Still 14˚ at 9.30 pm. == Craig, I’m afraid I can’t really answer that question because I don’t fully understand dew point, except to say that on Wednesday, when we had mild & humid SW’lies it felt very sweaty, whereas yesterday and much more so today it felt very dry and actually cold if one stayed in the shade too long, clad only in shorts & t-shirt. Can dew point be looked up somewhere?

Weather warnings galore for this weekend as there is a wide risk of deluges - starting in the west and moving east over the bank holiday period - which is a darn fine forecast from Piers if you ask me. It is also a strong R period so be warned out could get quite loud and heavy!!!!

Paddy - glad to help on the bread and butter file synchronicity meant I came across it on wuwt as I was darned if I could find it on my pc either. Question for you...what are the dew points like up there? I have known so many people who hate the south as we get tropical or continental airmasses (as now) - the humidity makes it uncomfortable & they only visit out of season - hence my love of NW-N-NE airmasses in summer as we stay in the 70s with Crystal clear skies but it's liveable! In hotter climates (bar the equator regions where sub 30°C may be the max but you drip all day) it's more bearable (dry heat). I know people who said that the temps were in the 30's (90-100°F) but it's nothing like a day in the south once it hits 80°F+ . I pity you some days Gerry - glad London is only an occasional visit for me, they should call it UHF - Urban Heat Furnace lol :)

Finally hit 80°F today (~27°C). Yesterday morning was close with dew points at around 15°F, so getting quite uncomfortable to the point you stay as you lie still, before dropping to 10°C (50°F) by end of day. Overnight I noticed a welcome cool breeze emerge which lasted till the sun was up. Today the dew points raised but have been on a down trajectory since (despite the heat making it very, very pleasant-except in building's that trap home being one of them tho I have experienced far worse. Beautiful and reminiscent of 2012 which was a lovely fine pause in the cold deluge. It took until yesterday to beat the temperature reached on 9th April!!! A retarded late dry spring (until last week it was dry). Could we pay for this and the lovely late March/early April spell later on? (Interestingly our Sun had a mini ramp in activity around then and has sort of bubbled along since) Subscribe to find out what lies ahead!!!!

15˚C at 7.30, warmest morning temp this year again, another scorchio day but with a light S’ly breeze that made it less close, max temp 24˚ on account of that, still 15˚ at 10pm. I noticed that the oaks are out well before the ash, so we’ll see if the means a drier summer.

Warmest day so far I think. My conservatory was 120F when I got home. It was only 110F yesterday. My bedroom was a lovely 92F!! Thankfully living out in the countryside the air cools quite quickly. None of that UHI out here. So on the approach to bed time on go the 18" fans to shift the air through. There was a lovely cool blast from the east on opening the windows so that will help tonight. Gatwick on eastern pattern today so it will go quiet not long after sun down.

The last 2 days after a humid cloudy start we've had some fab sunshine & great temps upto 22/23 deg impressive clouds at times with the feel of a storm in the air, 16 deg now at 10.44 pm a little less muggy than last night with a very slight breeze.

14˚C at 7.30, warmest morning temp so far this year, followed by an amazingly warm and mostly sunny day with a variable breeze and cloudy spells, but with the difference to yesterday being that it continued warm even under cloud cover and we had a staggering max temp of 26˚, a light shower after 5pm but a balmy evening, still 17˚ at 10pm. My favourite type of spring/summer weather: HP over Britain feeding in warm SW’ly air, long may it continue!

6˚C overnight, 11˚ at 7.30, brilliant sunshine after the overnight heavy rain and distant thunderstorm, fairly cool W’ly breeze and clouds moving in from the W after 10am. Intermittend very warm sunshine during which temps moved up to 20˚ but whenever the sun was covered by clouds it got noticeably cooler - this has often been a summer feature in the last few years. Some light rain showers in the evening but overall a lovely day, the ground being nice and humid again after the last few rains together with the warmth will get plants going big time. 12˚ at 10pm.

Beautiful day yesterday. Warm and sunny all the way. Having been out all evening I had to dig out the big fans to be able to sleep. Although there was little breeze, the fans were able to turn 82F into a much better 70F. Today I left in sunshine but it is cloudy in town. I did note that there was a red sky this morning and the wind pattern is from the west.

9˚C at 7.30, bright start but only until 10am, after which clouds moved in on the cold S’ly breeze and made for a cool middle part of the day, only brightening up after 3pm and gradually getting warmer again, max temp 17˚ when it was bright, back down to 9˚ again by 10pm. Had a good look at a number of ash trees again today on our walk, hardly any sign of foliage to be seen.

Over the last few days we have had a nice bit of rain. The weekend has been pleasant after a few showers yesterday it has been sunny today. A good strong breeze has been about though and it has been chilly at night. Not quite low enough to need to light the fire as the sun has warmed the house during the day. Iceagenow has news on some heavy snow for 2 US states that are notable for being the heaviest for many decades.

9˚C at 7.30, drizzle, NW’ly breeze to begin with, later turning into the S, rain or drizzle all day until 6pm when it started to brighten up. Even though it felt cool all day we nevertheless had a max temp of 17˚, that’s good enough for plants to grow. The ground got a good soaking, so growth will speed up further. 9˚ again at 9.30pm.

Yeah Gerry n Piers showing same with comments here, thought it was our slow Internet.. Lots of showers and clouds with occasional warm sunny spells here since last post, some really stormy looking sky at times with some heavy showers but no thunder or lightning as yet though wouldn't have been surprised to see/hear some. I believe a small funnel cloud was reported in the country I think Mayo but not sure. Around 15 deg stormy looking with a light breeze at 4.30 pm strange wind also whipped up earlier around late morning for a short time.
