  • I still thought a country famous for talking about the weather would have better predictions, but here we are.

  • Hahaha I know people like that. I think I might be turning into one. Maybe there's a certain quantity of shit weather you can stand to ride through and I've filled up the tank.

  • This morning i had to dig out a woolly hat and a body warmer for the 730 dog walk.
    10am MrsDeth had to pop the heating on for an hour
    Now back from my lunchtime dog walk and have had to open the windows as it is roasting.

    Waiting for the 6pm downpour as I am supposed to be cooking pizzas outside tonight

  • Putting the heating on for an hour will get you into the golf club thread before the end of this winter.

  • An interesting paper in Nature recently about Google’s work on short-term local weather forecasting: Ravuri, S., Lenc, K., Willson, M. et al. Skilful precipitation nowcasting using deep generative models of radar. Nature 597, 672–677 (2021).­-z

  • Thanks for that, just shared that with my colleagues at a machine learning company I'm doing some work for. Good timing, we were talking about weather modelling only yesterday.

  • Has anybody tried to use Weather Bagel recently? I've been trying through the week to check a ride for the weekend and keep getting an error of 'Could not process route, please try again.' have tried across a couple of devices/browsers with a few different GPX routes and always the same. Would be a shame if it's a long running issue as I find it very useful.

  • do days get any more perfect than today
    riding around central london was stunning this lunchtime

    well apart from all that sun in the eyes causing a day of squinting and riding blind

  • Today started off well all right

  • The house that had Velux roof windows installed today round the corner from me might be about to go through some stuff.

  • Red weather warning for London today, 10am to 3pm. Be careful out there, kids.

    People have been warned to tie down objects in their gardens and be wary of fierce winds which could cause trees to topple over and tiles to fly off buildings. “Make sure you follow the advice of local authorities and councils, fasten doors and windows tonight and tomorrow morning and keep your cars locked in garages or away from trees and walls,” said Met Office forecaster Annie Shuttleworth.­/feb/18/storm-eunice-london-added-to-red­-weather-warning-amid-danger-to-life

  • Got a day off today as the school is closed because of red warning." Wind day" parp parp.
    stay safe 🌪️

  • Got home around 3.30am this morning after a thumping night out in soho, I’m waking up thinking how many babies are gonna be born today called stormzy e.. and why is my laptop at work.. stay safe everyone

  • I'm going to publicly bet here that 2 fence panels and one tree fall in my yard.
    The real money is on whether the architectural glass breaks or not.

  • Looks like it’s arrived in East Ham. 9:53

  • Ha @Well_is_it
    we must be neighbours..

  • Quite possibly! More in Manor Park than East Ham but same thing basically.

  • Just heard a horrible crashing/grinding above me; cautiously looked out of my skylight and we've definitely lost some ridge tiles at least. The roofer only fixed those the other day! It's always noisy during storms in this attic flat but this actually feels quite scary; the roof is groaning like crazy and the whole place is wobbling.
    My wife is meant to be landing at Heathrow at lunchtime; no idea if that'll happen. The LAX-Heathrow flight before hers was cancelled, but hers boarded and took off.

  • I'm going to publicly bet here that 2 fence panels and one tree fall in my yard.

    One of neighbour's fence panels is down. Propped it up, but it's down again.

  • Sitting in my office, nervously checking the trampoline in the garden directly across the road.

  • Hooold, HOOLD!!!
