Default Met office get it wrong again sigh :|

Ive been watching the storms develop just off
the bay of biscay and heading ne, there was no
mention of possible storms on met office in sw.
Do they not update there forecasts? Not only
have they failed to take in the temps which was expected too cool down
they also didnt give any warnings about the severe storms in se the other
day!

On bbc online weather it says summary "Risk of thunder in Sw"
which was not mentioned last night, but under the forecast it says
Cloud and some patchy rain, will transfer south across England and Wales,
otherwise sunny intervals..

The met office is a complete joke as far as im concerned!

Well bless my soul, a new and original critique!

It's about time someone here had a rant about the appaling Met O. It's quite
wrong to suppose that we only remember it's failures and not it's successes,
or that seaweed is a crap indicator of future thunderstorms. Lay down your
computers and tephigrams men and women, and reach for the Fucus Vesiculosus.
