Just in from Piers Corbyn at Weather Action:
1. WeatherAction News Release and Public 10 Jan 2013Warning
– SUMMARY PUBLIC FORECAST issued because of the importance of what lies ahead for the UK and Ireland – part carried on Daily Express front page 10 Jan:
Full detailed forecast available via http://www.weatheraction.com/wactmember5.asp
Extreme cold, blizzards and snow drifts “many feet deep” to bring chaos to England and Wales for at least three weeks – into early Feb
· WeatherAction forecast issued ahead of all others
This catastrophic forecast scenario was first issued in detail in mid-December by WeatherAction long range forecasters and is now starting to come true. “Other forecasters are just starting to agree with us three weeks late but they don’t realize how severe this is going to be”, said Piers Corbyn, astrophysicist of WeratherAction.com
“Our solar-lunar based forecast predicted generally increasingly cold and very cold weather from around Sat 12th Jan for Britain and Ireland. Next, waves of major Arctic blasts and blizzards with many feet of drifting snow are likely in places from around 20th with another major blizzardy blast around the begining of February.
“England and Wales including the South are likely to get the deepest snow, while Scotland and Northern parts of Ireland will probably be very cold rather than very snowy. Some of the SouthWest of Britain and Ireland will probably get rain rather than snow at times.
· Sudden stratospheric warmings forecast breakthrough
“There will be fluctuations in the severity of this weather but our confidence in this general forecast is increased by our new breakthrough in predicting major sudden warmings of the polar stratosphere, which in a contradictory way drive blasts of very cold air south.
“Although there is something of a ‘stratospheric warming’ developing now 10 Jan”, said Piers, “we expect more intense ‘sudden stratospheric warmings’ and related cold blasts around quite well defined dates to come. We are 85% sure of this general picture and further details of the weather and stratosphere forecasts can be found via our website http://www.weatheraction.com “.
WeatherAction expect snow amounts to be as bad or worse than the record-breaking December 2010 – which they also predicted.
“Dr Stephen Wild, snow-expert at Weathernet advises that previous significant snow blasts in the last 10 years before Dec 2010 in England and Wales were: begining Jan 2010, 8-9 Feb 2007, Feb 1996 and Jan 1993”, said Piers.
“These extreme events are entirely driven by solar activity and lunar factors and nothing to do with changes in CO2 which have no effect whatsoever on weather or climate”, he added.
