The Weather Charts

25 October 2014.Midnight

This is an example of the North Atlantic chart issued daily or twice daily by Britain’s Meteorological Office. Pretty is it not?

But unfortunately due to recent improvements I am now going to be getting them from Switzerland.

This is an example of the same thing from there:

bracknell+132

Not quite so pretty but it is a forecast for the time of issue plus 132 hours. The present ones from the MetOffice only go up to 84 and you have to wait until they are over 7 hours out of date before you can see them.

The recent changes at Exitdoor make them difficult to store and the present format is .gif when they used to be .jpg. You can find out which is superior without my help.

Here are the rest of  the day’s output from Westwind:

Oh!

Look, nearly missed the Volcano warning. Talk about clear as a bell!

On the T96 drawing.

It was a pity I chose to leave the clutches of the Met Office when I did. They were a law unto themselves with no explanation or apology but at least they know what day it is. The Swizz/German site I have lighted on slips in a couple of charts from any old when -on a regular basis.

I can only hope what I am looking at is honest.

Funny old world, isn’t it?

Why do they do that, I wonder.

Why do journalists do this:

The above was from a recent news search for Volcanic Eruptions. Why do they work the situation and how do they get the websites loaded with such stuff?

Just because a journalist writes claptrap like that we have to all end up on the front page where it belongs?

At the beginning of this spell there were very few eruptions. Since then a little has happened but nothing extra-ordinary. Of course it might -but it hasn’t. So we have to read about what could be, for our entertainment. What exactly are you being taught that could not be just as easily inculcated in the frames of the most gormless people you can imagine?
