Default Annoying weather forecastors.

For what seems whatever now all I seem to have heard them say is yet more
cloud, but it should get sunnier.

I sometimes think they should get out more. Here in Penzance it's been
glorious weather for a week. Since the 11th there has only been 1 cloudy
day. Otherwise loads of sunshine and light winds. Maximum temperatures
ranging from 10.9 on 12th to 13.4 on 14th (though today looks like being
colder.) The change here is likely to be very much for the worse not the
better, to a cloudy & raw easterly.

Also I hate that new chart with the huge temperature symbols, visible from
Mars on a clear day. Despite the size, the design of the chart meams that
Cornwall can never been seen, being entirely hidden behind a jacket.

It's annoying isn't it when it doesn't seem to apply to your own particular
area. I can tell you though that here it has been dire and sunless for 7
consecutive days up until today which isn't special. Yesterday was the type
of day that beggars belief that someone wouldn't prefer snow. Dark, dismal,
moderate rain all day and only max of 6.5C!

None here either, just cloud, cloud, cloud... haven't had my telescope out
at all this year that I can remember!

Trevor,

The local forecasters are generally very good. It's the using of the weather
over SE England, and generalising it as if the whole of the country had the
same which I object to. The east and SE have had a miserable time in the
last few days, but the same is not true for the west, from Scotland right
down to Cornwall & Devon.

BBC South East has a new system this week. On the opt-out to the local
forecast on Breakfast TV all we get is "wallpaper" music and a caption
page suggesting use of CEEFAX. Very impressive :-(

Now that's very odd... there is an early morning National and regional
playout of recorded forecasts that they should be inserting into that 40"
hole.

Are you sure it's *every* morning or was it just a one off due to technical
problems?

Every morning this week so far. It is particularly noticeable as the
national presenter (Carol Kirkwood) has finished her slot by saying
something along the lines of "and now here's the weather in your area".

I thought the BBC had this sorted after that famous forecast (must be 20
years ago) by Bill Giles who said on a national forecast words to the
effect that: "Fortunately, the heavy snow that has disrupted life in the
south-east is now moving away into the Midlands".

I remember seeing the forecast and instantly thinking that he's been
tactless, to say the least. There was a bit of a hue-and-cry afterwards,
IIRC.
