Default Re: While I dont wish to tempt providence....

Its been baking hot here today, clouded over at about 4pm and we've had a bit of rain this evening but not much.

I found the metcheck to be pretty accurate but also somewhat pessmistic as well. I.e they'll say its going to rain and in reality you get a shower.

If it does rain well remember. We have the pub we can use and also we have a 12 x 12 tent, also I suspect a few peeps will be bringing gazeebo's and stuff.

Forecast is changing all the time. What I'm trying to say is dont let the weather put you off, If you coped with AR07 you'll cope with this year fine.

Liz and I live 4 miles from the campsite. I'll bump this thread with what the weather is doing now and again. Just to see if it tallies up with what Metcheck are saying.

This links also quite useful

We may be lucky on the reainfall front according to this, it appears to loop around the AR campsite and stay dry. Divine intervention maybe

We'll make room if we need to. The amount of cars coming is less than I thought and the field is alot bigger than I first thought it was !!

Weather here this morning is overcast & humind, its really muggy. I had to go to the dentist this morning and was sweating in my leathers.

We had some rain in the night but not much.

Yeah...

Mind you forgot to get a vid cam for this year, meh. I am sure there will be a lot of them to cover everybody.

Yes indeed. Not one of my best posts.

So long as it doesn't rain on Friday, I don't really care too much what the weather does.
