The weather is against us yet again so for those who have been avidly and impatiently watching the weather I have to counsel yet again,


PATIENCE

It's a pain, after all that joinery, reading and studying, yes you need to wait.

Like the rest of us.

Yesterday we had in Finland the first cleansing flight day. Sun and 5C temp.
On Polar Circle beekeepers must still wait for better days.

Next week forecast, no sun but warm air, about +4C.

Lots and lots
what a difference a day makes for weather forecasting!

on Metcheck last night the high for Tuesday in my area was 1 degree and heavy snow. The BBC weather forcast said 9 degrees and heavy rain. (!!)

metcheck also suggest Wednesday was going to be 2 degrees, thursday 2 degrees and Friday 3 degrees

today metcheck says Tuesday will be 6 degrees and light showers. The BBC still says 9 degrees and heavy rain.

metcheck also now says Wednesday 7 degrees, Thursday 8 degrees and Friday 10 degrees..

Metcheck always err on the side of caution when it comes to temperature forecasting :coolgleamA:.
I do however find them to be more accurate than the bbc forecasts :bigear:.
