Nothing is so simple that it cannot be misunderstood

All enjoyable things must come to an end and so it is that I find myself thinking what to write about in my last article for theWeather Club.  Over the years I’ve covered all things hot to cold, calm to stormy, hurricanes to tornadoes, so I thought it was about time I wrote about communicating the weather, or the weather forecast to be more precise.  It’s all very good making an outstanding forecast, but if you cannot get the forecast across to the user of the information then to all intents and purposes it is worthless, at least to that user.

UK weather review: February 2018

February was a rather cold month, with a mean temperature of just 2.4°C, 1.3°C below the 1981-2010 average. It began rather unsettled but became dry and mild mid-month.
