Just a quick moan: The weather station in Bristol is in Filton. This is where I am.
As of right now (14:10) the weather forecast says that at 13:00hrs, we should have been experiencing heavy showers, carrying on through 15:00hrs.
I've not felt so much as a spot of rain, and it's only just become a little bit overcast, the blue skies were still very visible at around 13:40!
So whoever is on duty isn't checking out the window!!!
Looking out the window
Don't you know that the weather is all about what comes out of a machine, it's got nothing to do with the sky and such! I know this is true because met service in NZ took out all the local weather stations (that had actual people in them) and replaced them with machines.
We got snow here today, 12 hours ahead of schedule. Very pretty.
Ooh! Snow! i'd love a sprinkle of snow right now. It'd be most refreshing!
Incidentally, while I dont have snow to look forward to, i am looking forward to the Japanese Drummers we have headlining at the pub tonight... It'd be great if they were followed by a fantastic thunderstorm!!!

Japanese Drummers? Where, Robyn, where???
I'll swap you some snow for some visible blue skies I don't mind snow, but the sun's been AWOL for too long.
at The Junction in Bristol. I think they are called the Issho Taiko Drummers (something like that, I keep gettng it wrong even when I'm reading the poster!)
It was apparently updated at 13:20 this afternoon, the weather observation station is clearly stating different details to those on the 'forecast'.
Forecasts for 13:00 and 16:00 respectively:
Temp: 22C - 20C
Wind: 3mph - 3mph
Hum: 74% - 93%
They've obviously drummed up some rain I gott soaked walking from the carpark into work for my 'nights'
It makes a change from the usual cloud (sigh) I pick up at the gate.
It's on the way up to you Robyn, should catch you just as you roll out of the gig
Have you seen the poem on weather in ? They've got it right.
No rolling out of gig for me... Bed's upstairs!
