Met Office accuracy review

A timely reminder of the forecasting prowess of the Met Office. Give them due credit, when it comes to ‘nowcasting’ they are excellent as they showed yesterday when advising British Airways (as reported on BBC radio) about heavy snow just hours before it arrived at Heathrow and Gatwick.

But when it comes to looking ahead the Met Office ignore meterology and set their stall on those infamous climate change computer models developed by people who say things such as this – the ones that have failed to project the decade long arrest of warming, failed to project bitterly cold and disruptive winters across hemispheres, and persist in projecting runaway warming. Perhaps that is why the Met Office says one thing and nature delivers something very different.

    Unlike people like Piers Corbyn who was forecasting a very cold winter back in May.

    The Met Office, the Hadley Centre and CRU merit full scientific and financial investigation: something which is most unlikely with idiots like Chris Huhne in charge of energy policy.

    The Met Office forecast that we would get 2-5cm of snow yesterday if we got any at all. In the end we had 22cm. Worst of all, they were still only predicting a light snow fall even though the weather system heading our way was already dumping large volumes of global warming further south.
