    What is it with the Met Office and forecasters, weather forecast Apps etc etc..... I don't think they've got it right once this year... absolutely crap. No rain forecast in this area, so far we've had 2 down pours and a 3rd brewing. I take it new members can still have a rant :)

    It turned out not too bad from around 4.... by then I had settled in to catch up on the weekends racing. On the UP side there's a couple of reasonable days ahead...but that forecast is from my Crystal Balls :)

    I use that Accuweather app it's not too bad at all.
    Better than the BBC one....which appears to rely on ouija board contact with Michael Fish!

    We had a yellow weather warning for rain in Exeter yesterday. I spent the day in sunglasses...

    Somebody remind me where the Met Office is again...

    If that's the case, there's an over kill on security at that big building I drive by on my way home each night...

    I've stood outside the chief meteorologist's office and there's a piece of seaweed hanging there. It seems at least as accurate as the super computer that takes up half of that floor of the building.
