Met Office make it three in a row

The Met Office make it three in a row, with an 8-5 win over Meteogroup on today’s maximum temperatures. On the strength of the last three days the ECMWF seem to over-estimate afternoon temperatures, although I still can’t manage to get them to agree on when to report them in either of their forecast graphics. Today I had to use the ITV graphics for the Met Office forecast because the Met Office are so darn quick at deleting any evidence in their early morning forecast. I’m going to have to find a better way that this to verify their forecasts…

  1. Can’t remember if I’ve said this before, but I’m really surprised at the poor quality of Meteogroup’s forecasts. I’m not surprised the Met Office is winning here — they have exceptional science. The difference is Meteogroup get the forecasters ‘on time in full’. The Met Office, simply, doesn’t. That’s why it lost the BBC contract, and now almost all commercial revenue (I understand that the only significant ‘commercial’ revenue left is the NATS contract, which the ICAO states has to go to the National Meteorological Service anyway).
