See you on Sunday!
As you say Metcheck is not very good over about 36 hrs beforehand. But it did indicate some rough weather coming in. Usually they get that right and then you have to keep an eye on the forecast to see when its actually going to hit. As with any forecast its only a guide. I wouldn't take it as read but an indication only. I was also using other web sites to get an indication but chose only to publish the sites from metcheck as they were the easiest to understand.
As it is looks like I was erring too much on the side of caution and that the storm has disapated somewhat. It seems quite difficult to pin any severe weather down for a particular period over the weekend now and that the whole weekend is going to be a bit blowy.
In the case of the being the bringer of bad news its good to be wrong on this occasion.
See you all Sunday.
