I wish people (any people) would understand the difference between collecting and reporting on the data of what HAS happened and FORCASTING what might happen.

I'm always being asked "What sort of winter are we going to have?" Aaaaaaargh!

Yes Anne I get the same - keep saying " I thought you said it was going to be a cold winter"

1. I have never said anything like that
2, Neither have the Met Office !
3. Its not winter yet

Back to the topic - I would be keen to see more raw data, aslong as it was in a format I could understand ? to many of the charts,models make no sense to me at all.

I would look forward to live rainfall radar, live data from ALL weather stations, live data from ALL rainfall gauges eg Seathwaite

Met'O - the good

first rate service from the library archive in providing me with a lot of data today for several sites. faultless

however, (i hate however's) you need what to ask for as they had previously denied my original request which was asking for the same thing but in a slightly different way.
