SHITE WEATHER-XMAS STOCK NOW ON SALE

STAFF AT SELFRIDGES GET INTO THE FESTIVE MOOD, 4 AND 1/2 MONTHS BEFORE XMAS

There I was today fretting over having to cancel my FIRST BBQ of the year because of the shite weather in SCOTLAND, when my mood was really lifted by the news that THOSE BASTARDS AT SELFRIDGES have started selling their XMAS STOCK, AT THE BEGINNING OF FUCKING AUGUST!!!!!
Speaking of the weather, how can those TWATS IN THE WEATHER SERVICE make such a fucking hopeless job of forecasting the weather!
I use the BBC 5 day forecast for my exact area which is 3 miles from Prestwick Airport. You would think therefore that with, weather balloons, satellites and computers, they could predict the weather 2 days in advance.
All last week it was predicting sun all day Saturday and Sunday. But the BASTARDS wait until I have organised a wee Barby for some friends on Saturday until they change the forecast, Friday night to light rain.
What a fucking country, when it's nice in spring, it's too cold at night and in summer when it's warm, it rains!
IF I DID MY JOB AS BAD AS THEM I WOULDN'T LAST TWO MINUTES!

DL, I am predicting a long, very cold winter ahead of us.

I noticed that the rowan trees are heavy with ripe berries and also I noticed yesterday that trees are losing leaves already. It's only the beginning of August!

And in the shop where I work, we have pallets of charcoal we are gonna be stuck with. Bastards!!

Funny you should mention that Rab, I went past some Rowan trees the other day and as you say they were covered in ripe berries., Is it a sign or are the birds just getting fucking lazy? Mind you, you would be better looking a red skies at night and frog spawn than getting the weather from those BBC bastards. I have to admit however that I'M falling in love with that new weather girl, big Judith on reporting Scotland.

Hi,

Not only can they not forecast the weather very well, they can't even follow the the climatic conditions as a clue.

The BBC Eurpoean 5 day forecast for Spain forecasts far more wet days for Alicante than it does for Malaga yet any visitor to these places will tell you from casual observation that the countryside round Alicante is semi-desert while that round Malaga, if not exactly lush, is much greener by comparison.

They also frequently have Barcelona several degrees warmer in winter than Alicante, which is unlikely.

What is this BBC prejudice against forecasting good weather for Alicante? We should be told.

Regards,

Christmas stuff already? What happened to Halloween? Normally, they have all that shite in the shops by now!

RoR, do you stay in Alicante. I used to have a flat in Denia so I know the Costa Blanca gets more sun than Costa del Sol.

Gigits, the next thing is usually the creme eggs and hot cross buns in Scotland.

The Card Factory in Dundee now has a whole section for Christmas cards. Next to nothing on new baby cards etc. Weird.
STV weather forecasts are the best. Over half the forecast tells you the weather earlier today. Teah I noticed cos I wasn't comatose. Eejits
