In previous comment threads over recent months there have been several references to weather forecasts adjusting significantly over the five day lead time. So this blog is carrying out its own, albeit unscientific, ‘weather test’ to compare forecasters’ predictions over the next five days for the weather on Thursday. I will be working in Birmingham that day, so that is the appropriate location as I can record the observed actual weather.
Each day between today and Thursday, this blog will screenshot of the online weather forecast for Thursday for Birmingham that are published on the following sites:
Then on Thursday we will check the current observations against the forecasts and note if/how forecasts were adjusted as the day drew closer, and if possible discern which was the most accurate.
If you know where you will be on Thursday why not try it for yourself? The more comparisons the better.
