Forecast is looking gloomy

Not that it'll make a lot of difference to me if the water's coming from below or above

I'm more worried about the wind than anything and that doesn't look too bad.

This is my forecast for Poole. But I wouldn't stand by it yet as it will change.

12:00hrs 14 °c Max 0.5 mm Rain 100 % Cloud Cover 9 mph winds from South West.

That sounds better than the BBC forecast.

BTW, the BBC are usually wrong for Poole-don't ask me why but I've only had it rain once in the last 2 years when it's said overcast/light rain on their website.

That's not a forecast ... even Mickey Mouse could do better!

try these:
http://ows.public.sembach.af.mil/wxc...synoptic72.htm
http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/..._forecast.html
http://tinyurl.com/wd42d

but for sure, the weekend is looking a tad iffy.

Looking at the Met Office surface pressure chart forecasts I think the BBC 5day looks fairly plausible. For the end of October F4 winds and light rain looks pretty good considering the weather that’s around at the moment. We're also on neaps so any wind against tide situations will be minimal.

Inshore Waters Outlook for following 3 days
Strong winds at times around Scotland, but with high pressure over the continent, generally light winds around England and Wales. Rain at times.

I'm afraid I don't think I'll be able to make it either I'm taking some photos at white air too (see you there tim and maybe ben?) and my tow car broke down on me this morning, plus the tides are all wrong to launch, plus my fuel money is now being spent repairing my car

Thanks for the organisation nick, hope you all have a blinder of a trip. If I'm about in yarmouth at 11 on sat, I may pop down to take some pics.
