    What's with the tone of some of the posters above? Did anyone listen to the webinar (HERE)?
    He comes across to me as someone who is an expert in the field... He's not Manager of Climate Prediction Services for nothing right?

    I suspect you may have taken some comments more literally than the spirit in which they were intended.

    Perhaps. No skin off my nose, but the trajectory of the "spirit" is venturing wide of the OP.

    As we know (and VSG has asserted) that the OP seemed to have no point yours is a big call.

    I think the OP is clearly ambiguous, what with nothing being said other than the title, plus the........
    For the record I was being sarcastic when I mentioned latte drinkers etc

    What I see is weird awkward sarcasm, that the author mistakenly thinks will be interpreted as sarcasm, which is clearly not the case. As usual, you try and confuse people to make a point.

    And just another distraction. You are obviously just avoiding my question. All in protection of your agenda.

    So now you have a question. And I have an agenda. The things you discover on Tuesday evenings.

    I don't know if you realise, but here in the Weather forum, agendas of your kind are not very welcome. But I'm sure you realised that in your last experiment here 'When does the southerly arrive'.

    Gosh. So what's my "agenda"?

    And the southerly thing was a damn fine idea that the self appointed weather gurus thought was beneath their expertise. Heaven forfend that information be presented in a simple fashion.

    Well then keep providing helpful suggestions, like creating a dumb site about 'When does the southerly arrive', even though you got plenty of answers, you are not satisfied. TBH perhaps your agenda is to try and amuse yourself. You are trying to play with me, but it ain't working.

    Your suggestion is yet again impractical. Seems to be a common theme with you and the Weather forum.

    It's not impractical. You just don't have the imagination or skills to implement it.
