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.

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 www.WeatherAction.com 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 * http://bit.ly/2iIoMXN *).
"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."

13˚C at 7.30, cloudy & cool with S’ly breeze beefing up during the morning . Summer solstice this morning at 5.24 this morning, for once it falls on the 21st as we learned at school, but it doesn’t always. Rain started at 2pm and kept going off and on all afternoon, max temp 17˚, lightning & thunder by 9.30pm with some heavy downpours, which the garden will welcome, 14˚ by 10pm.

Continuation of the hot weather here, ordinarily having had Spanish grandparents it would be my favourite type of weather to enjoy, But I would quite happily swap weather with Paddy atm as it's not great for trying to get work done with morning sickness, some rain at 1 a.m this morning so had to go and have a little stand out in that :) light showers this morning but clearing to give another hot day of 25/26 deg a slight breeze moving leaves in a circular direction in some parts of the garden & some cloud moving in so hoping for a thundery breakdown to clear the air a lil bit ;-)

12˚C at 7.30, sunny but cool start, fresh E’ly breeze to start with, clouding over for a couple of hours but then the sun came out again and despite the breeze that gradually turned into the SE bringing cold air of the N Sea we had a max temp of 21˚ and a sunnier day than expected. Feeling chilly by 8pm, 10˚ by 10.30pm, that’s fresh enough for a June evening. I’m not sure whether I should pity or envy you folks in the South & in Ireland, send us some of your heat if you can…

Slightly cooler leaving this morning with some cloud but soon gone and hot all the way. I am sure more people were heading to the station yesterday - calling it a day early. Well, leaving the club at 11pm the car read 24C and after the aircon in the club felt warm. About 30 mins later at home after allowing time to see if there was a bit of wind cooling, the temperature was 18C. that's six degrees of UHI. I believe the likes of Phil Jones say that it is only one degree and adjusted for!!!! Fans on full blast while I watched the first half of the U21 football so that it was cool enough to sleep. Now we are getting the thunderstorm and flash flood warnings for later this week. just on the off chance they will be right, I shall do some pond filling tonight to create some space in the waterbutts.

yesterday, big sun shading umbrellas up as am living in a sun trap. Solar shading overhangs are doing their job and stopping the high sun from getting in. 32 on field edge and max of 24 in the bedroom, had to keep a pedestal fan on in there overnight. Really hard to cope with the heat at my age but am being very careful. All jobs are finished by 10 and outside watering and allotment by 6.30. Much more energy zapping than cold.

15˚C at 7.30, cloudy and feeling a little cooler but then we had a couple of hours of hot sunshine which cranked the thermometer up to 23˚, however, by 10 cloud moved in big time, some of it looking very dark and it got noticeably cooler and stayed around the 18˚ mark for a while before going down to 15˚ again, dry all day though. Winds varied from SW - NE and eventually made wearing shorts & tee shirt not so exciting anymore. 12˚ at 10pm, feeling positively freezing after yesterday, while the South & the Continent are sweltering.

Another hot one. You can tell it will be a scorcher when it is hot from the moment you leave for work. Lots of Meadow Browns fluttering around the orchard and garden yesterday. So many bramble flowers for them. Nice to hear a skylark up above. Despite the windows being open my bedroom clocked 99F in the shade while a temp reader in the sun was over 106F. Dropped away to below 70F come night where the big fans drove the hot air out to make it reasonable to sleep. if I can remember I can do a UHI check this evening. I am in the suberbs for an evening of musical entertainment so can see what the difference is once home. The warmists will be cranking up their squawking if the heat remains and we will have the usual nanny warnings.

20˚C at 7.30, wow! Hottest morning temp yet, followed by a hot day with a max of 28˚, hottest so far this year. However, a fresh SW wind kept it all very pleasant, there were quite a few clouds which built up towards evening when we had about an hour’s light rain, 15˚ at 9.30pm. Tomorrow promises to be another warm day. Vegetables and humans are lapping it up, Piers spot on once again.

Phew! Lovely weather to laze around in but a bit hot for active gardening unless you can find a shady bit in need of some attention. Today it was already 70F by 9am and now at noon it is on 80F. Off for some work in the shade.

18˚C at 7.30, another record morning temp for this year, gearing up for a really hot day - except that we had several occasions when a large cirrostratus cloud got stuck above us and blotted out the sun, so it got agreeably cool/warm in the stiff WSW breeze but we did eventually hit 27˚, hottest so far this year, highly enjoyable. Another warm day forecast for tomorrow, still 20˚ at 9.30pm. We went further inland yesterday and saw some bits of bracken that clearly had been frosted quite recently, always in hollows or at the bottom of slopes.

14˚C at 7.30, bright start with clouds and feeling mild, sky gradually getting overcast and getting cooler after midday with a fresh W’ly wind. However, by late afternoon the wind turned into the S and it got perceptibly warmer, up to 22˚ in fact. Cool evening again; coming home late managed to see Jupiter in the SW sky, stargazing is pretty much out from late April to September at our latitude. 14˚ at midnight.

A nice breeze has returned which makes such a difference. It was quite strong while waiting for the train yesterday evening. And with temperatures dropped down nicely after dark, my bedroom was actually cold come lights out. No need for the fans. Breeze again today. Forecast looking good and if it continues my water storage is going to take a hit. Nothing worse for ponds than sun and wind. Looking around the orchard I have actually spotted some apples. a lot of damaged leaves on some trees from the sharp frosts we had. A mountain marathon in Colorado has a slight problem at the moment - over 6ft of snow on the course! Passes in California are still closed.

14˚C at 7.30, the day started sunny and then turned cloudy, looking like yet another showery day.

So far, 30d forecast is pretty accurate.

However, it turned sunny and hot, 23˚, until about 5pm when the showers started up again, but there had been a long enough dry interval to get on top of the most urgent weeding. Cooler for what was left of the day, 13˚ at 10pm.

Remove the wind and what a difference it makes. Back to Summer warmth yesterday and even more so today. Yes, plants growing nicely Paddy. Lots of flowers to come soon on the blackberries. Not looking like much else has made it through the cold spell. Got the grass I intend to mow to mulch level so mowing is quite fun, especially with a splash of Castrol R in the fuel. Just a quick whizz around probably in just under a weekly operation. Educational visit to the show in that the strange purple balls of flowers that have appeared are Alliums it would seem. After pub quiz last night at 10-30 I couldn't believe how light the sky still was.

My planned Friday at the South of England show was scuppered by a car that wouldn't start. The odd shower was around during the day so once mobile again, Saturday at the show was the better day. A feature over the last few days has been the wind. Yesterday in the garden it was quite strong and blustery. a bit more cloud around yesterday but mainly overcast today with a breeze. The wind has kept the temperature down so it was very pleasant at the show and nice to work outside on paving yesterday. Interesting story on impending heavy snow for California on both iceagenow and wuwt. Nothing unprecedented of course but in the context of the hottest year evah it seems a bit odd.

Commiserations to Eastside on the Finnish Gulf but, though it may be cold there, the globe as a whole is more in line with Lorraine's observations (and, indeed, YTD CET). The YTD UAH satellite average shows this year to be warmer than the same months for any year except the El Nino years of '98, '10 and '16. Indeed, despite current solar activity, it's warmer than the years of previous solar maxima. Make of that what you will.

"Finland reports its coldest May since 1969" I can confirm from right here on the Finnish gulf, it's going to be one of the coldest JUNES so far as well. It's absolutely freezing! Every night having to add lots of extra blankets as there's no heating. Until yesterday afternoon, a bitter north to north west wind blew at gale force for nearly 3 days. With it came hail stones, so high altititude temps were below freezing. After some consultation with the various weather narratives, it appears there is not any coming real warmth until the beginning of white nights. That's very unusual, and it's not been much better on the other side of the border in northern Russia. Another month of this and it's a failed summer, no matter how much warmth could come in August.

Interesting how the BBC can be so schizophrenic about climate. Constantly on at Trump, but calming telling viewers of an old edition of Coast that 800 years ago, sea level at Harlech was much higher than it is today, right up to the castle walls in fact. Think about that: humans 800 years ago survived higher sea levels so easily that the English and Welsh could focus solely on Edwards attempt to conquer Wales for the English Crown. I wonder what the Eminent Mr Crane would say when confronted with that little climate anomaly?

No problem with that other than his hypocritical leftish preaching to others not to. We certainly caught a few showers yesterday but they were very small. I left my house with it teeming down so hard that driving speed had to be reduced, but arriving at the garden centre it was bone dry.

Lorraine - the sun is less active. So far this year 25% of days have been spotless by spaceweather's technique. Using earlier counting methods it would be a lot more. Radio sun has been low for ages, even dipping below 70. Finland reports its coldest May since 1969 and Adelaide has coldest start to winter since 1943. Let's see how they massage those figures into warming. Recycling only makes sense if you can use the recycled material, and at a sensible cost. Economics has always determined that aluminium is worth recycling, stainless steel and other nickel alloys, copper, lead. Steel less so but iron yes. Many industries require certain quality levels of metals which is best achieved from raw ore than recycled. Green energy just makes no economic sense and is not needed universally.

After some fairly heavy showers last Saturday, Sunday was dry a nice day for walking down the woods some heavy cloud but breaking late afternoon to give some warm sunshine whilst at the park with our kids on the way home. Monday cool with showers but Tuesday and Wednesday great days for working outside and temp. 15 - 17 deg good sunshine at times. Yesterday Thursday was mostly grey with some light showers here & there and on the cool side clearing somewhat later.This morning a cool 7deg misty but bright start out at 6.30 a.m had some lovely blue sky and sunshine for a time max 16/17 deg with heavy stormy looking clouds moving in all around this eve. 14 deg now at 7 pm looks like more rain later..

A lovely few days of weather which is great since I have the week off. Catching up with the gardening chores - everything seems to grown so much. Maybe it is all that CO2. The roses are coming out for their display. A previous owner was into his roses and they are lovely. The ground is very dry this year in comparison to last year where we saturated over the winter and then treated to regular rain through spring. My magnolias are on the road to recovery. New leaves are coming through to replace the shrivelled ones.

The night eventually brought a thunderstorm. What it didn't bring was nice clear air as today is very humid. Bank Holiday Monday means time for the village to go for a walk and it was very pleasant. It tried to rain as we approached the end but today is one of those days where you wouldn't really have minded. We have a nice buffet lunch to finish off. On the way I chatted to our local farmer who said that the overnight rain was good and bad depending on which field. While on matters horticultural, having a check round there is no sign of any fruit on my cherry plum or plums. There is some apple blossom coming out but no signs there either. The medlar had lots of fruit set but they are all dropping off. The plums by the house are looking good and there could be a big crop of blackberries and elderberries. The frost ravaged Magnolia looks to be recovering. Another frost victim was the Japonica.

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

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 === http://www.weatherhq.co.uk/weather-station/aberdeen-%2F-dyce === 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 === https://www.wunderground.com/gb/aberdeen === and === http://www.weathercast.co.uk/world-weather/weather-stations/obsid/3091.html === you can change station closer to you.

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+ .

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 heat...my home being one of them tho I have experienced far worse.
