On the MetO forecast for Penzance at 10:00 a 10% chance of rain here forecast all day, with white clouds,. This despite the radar and the fact it was distinctly wet as it had been for hours. Ah, I thought, perhaps it's just about to clear, an quick glance at the radar & the satellite imagery soon put that idea to bed..
Not just drizzle, but soaking moderate to heavy drizzle much of the time today, with the water streaming off everything. It was heavy enough to show up very well on the radar, which fine coastal drizzle rarely does. Eventually started petering out mid afternoon. (Yesterday's forecast was pretty poor as well.)
It seems such a shame that whilst the model forecasts showed the position of the front so accurately several days ahead, that the actual forecast weather ON THE DAY was so bad despite all the evidence at their fingertips, including a manned station at drizzle soaked Camborne.
The BBC forecast at least showed a high chance of rain.
On the plus side it was mild again, and almost totally calm. Several swimming in Porthleven harbour this morning at high tide, and a very nice wave on the south coast, north coast still messy.
