Those Undulatus Asperatus do tend to look ominous, damb those clouds!
Undulations are always suspect !
They can be beautiful, however:
Wow, that's dramatic but very ominous !
New synoptic blog from Netweather:
Excellent photo Chris, I think to be British and not appreciate cloudscapes would be like living without part of your soul.
Not my photo, unfortunately, but thanks for the comment, Colum, and I agree regarding cloudscapes, albeit our most common type is what I have at the moment - grey stratus. Anyway, here's a quote from a respected Netweather member (ex-Met Office employee albeit not a professional forecaster) on his thoughts (BTW, WAA stands for Warm Air Advection - horizontal movement with respect to the Earth's surface of warm air, usually northwards):
...Who has just posted regarding the output from one of the other deterministic models:
Dutton on this week:
Important forecast update from Netweather:
Strong winds and heavy rain to Ireland and Scotland, eh. Well, that'll make a change.
Going to get a little blowy!
Absolutely! See also here: https://www.netweather.tv/weather-f...t-a-hurricanequot-stuff-ophelia-heads-our-way
And warm! Mid twenties over Southern England so about -1 for @JohnnyO ?
Gee, thankies ever so ! What did you say your spare room was like again ?
Small! But you get a nightly tap dance show from the mice.
Dutton has posted a couple of videos:
Latest estimates from the US hurricanes people suggest that the hurricane will undergo extratropical conversion tomorrow while it is several hundred miles off the Spanish coast, possibly degrading straight from a hurricane to an extratropical cyclone/European windstorm without spending time as a tropical storm in between. That being said, Ireland and possible western Wales/south-west Scotland are expected to experience hurricane-force winds (defined as frequent gusts or continuous winds of 74 mph or above), so it's going to be disruptive and possibly present a danger to those outside near trees or in exposed areas such as clifftops.
Unusual content for a Tweet from the US National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center(tre):
This hurricane is now officially the farthest east Category 3 Atlantic hurricane ever.
