After running a detailed analysis and extrapolation of the meteo-feedback systems from micro level to global level including solar fluctuations and the observed bio-feedback of the ecology I have a 99.9% confidence level there will be snowfall in the area covered by Belgium, Holland Luxembourg and England by the 31st October 2011.

Hmm... we'll see. If Sherlockx is right, he'll get 99.9 WRZ$. Otherwise, that amount will be deducted from his account.

Heh... didn't you do this kind of bet last year also, Sherlockx? Don't you remember I told you your preview systems s*cks? Maybe I didn't. Well, you know now what I think.

Meaning I don't agree. :)

Where I lead the rest of the world follows! On the 20th.September in a British newspaper:
Quote:
Temperatures over the next three months will plummet to below average with one long-range forecaster predicting snowfalls in October.
James Madden, of Exacta Weather, said: ‘I expect to see the first signs of some moderate to heavy snowfalls as early as October or November in certain parts of the UK.

So place your bet now!
Hmm wonder if James Madden is a member of Mobilism? :lol:
PM me now James because I am predicting an extreme climactic event for the 18th January

The latest weather forecast from the British meteorolical office
Quote:
UK Outlook for Tuesday 4 Oct 2011 to Thursday 13 Oct 2011:

Unsettled conditions, with rain, heavy at times, should spread southeastwards from northern parts of the UK, becoming lighter and intermittent before clearing the southeast on Wednesday. This will bring much cooler temperatures than of late. with sunshine and showers expected. A west or northwesterly flow will develop for much of the rest of the period with showers or longer spells of rain in the north. Cooler at times with a risk of snow over Scottish Mountains, and occasional strong winds or gales in the northwest. Drier, brighter conditions in the south with temperatures perhaps a little below normal for the time of year, and some overnight frosts in rural, sheltered spots. Some outbreaks of rain are still possible, particularly towards the west.

Weird... :? That's not what I've read. I think it looked like this:

Belgian Outlook for The rest of 2011:

Capricious bets, based on guessing, foolish at times, has spread on different sections of the forum, becoming hilarious and predictable before posted by Sherlockx in contests topic last weeks. This will bring much more doubt than of late, with unseen shame and mockery expected. A feeling of despair will develop for much of the rest of the site, with unsolved riddles and lost bets in the specific contests topic. Un-replied at times with a risk of oblivion in bets, and occasional strong questions or hints in the riddles. Shorter, brighter ideas might be posted in riddles, with replies perhaps a little below normal for the time of the year, and some overnight thoughts in occasional, cloistered posts. Some outbreaks of hilarity are still possible, particularly in bets topic....


Meaning... I still don't agree! :lol:

It is possible that we may skip a season here, and by that I mean it may feel like early winter than autumn? As high pressure pulls back into the mid-Atlantic, low pressure may bring a cold blast of northerly air down through all areas

Forecast for the Lake district in England by the British Meteorolgical Office today
Quote:
Frequent heavy showers across the Lake District. There will hail mixed in with the odd rumble of thunder and falling as snow above about 900M. The showers will merge in the afternoon to give a more prolonged spell of rain and mountain top snow.

Do you accept this as a win Guy?


In the meantime it is not too late to have a bet on Zacharie's predictions for the Belgian red Devils.

If that is what you meant with your bet, then YES, of course.

Though it will leave a bad taste in my mouth as I understood you meant by the end of the month, and covering a larger area compared to the one you pretend fulfilling your bet. Maybe it's just something weird I had for lunch... ;)

Humble pie perhaps? :twisted:

But no problem I will accept your interpretation, that litle bit is after all only a precursor to bigger and better snowfalls :lol:

From the British newspaper The Daily Mail Friday 7th.October
Quote:
Parts of England and Wales have endured "significant" snowfalls and more could be on the way, weather forecasters said.

Long periods of heavy rainfall combined with a drop in temperature turned rain into sleet and then snow that settled 15cm deep in parts of Wales and the East Midlands.

Snow slowly began to form between 7am and 10am.

It fell on the higher ground over the Welsh mountains and the Brecon Beacons.

But it also fell over parts of Warwickshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire "to a significant level that we have not expected," a Met Office spokesman said.

Brendan Jones of the PA WeatherCentre said the "meandering" low pressure/cold air weather system is creating "a bit of a headache" for forecasters.

None can be sure which pockets of the country will be hit by rain, sleet or snow but further wintry conditions can be expected over the next few days.

The high grounds of Wales, Snowdonia, the north Peak District, the Lake District and parts of southern Scotland could experience snow showers.

Some people across the country may see snow for a short while, up to 30 minutes, which could then quickly turn to rain, Mr Jones said
