is it on or off Definitely one or the other 13:32 posted my weather gadget says 40% chance of precipitation tonight and shows part cloudy so it does seem rather hit or miss. When we used to do these viewing nights in Surrey we picked three dates and used the first clear one. Even then there could be three non events. However we have all experienced sudden changes in conditions especially here in Pembrokeshire. I will be checking this evening and if I think its a case of a reasonable chance then I will be leaving around 1900hrs. otherwise I will be eating my dinner rather than a warmed up meal sometime later. Anyone got a good crystal ball in working order?
Current predictions run from very poor to very good, depending on which model is used (GFS, Met Office or ECM) GFS gives cloud from 19:00 through till the early hours or longer, met office does not predict any cloud, but neither does it seem to have a cloud cover function which is odd. ECM is giving high cloud (poor) till 22:00 and clearing. The TWO interpretation of the GFS is for a clearing sky around 21:00.
Really, there is no need for such panic stricken posts jeremy, the responsibility lies with thiose who carry it and for certain there will be measures in place to deal with any eventuality, try and keep a bit calm. All block letters like that is equivalent to shouting, not required.
