Met Office Show Just How Variable UK Weather Is
By Paul Homewood
There is another point worth highlighting from the latest 3-month outlook for precipitation from the Met Office, which I mentioned earlier.
Year to year variability
They publish this chart, illustrating the range of observations during 1981-2010, for each 3-month period.
What is striking is just how much variation there is in these actual observations, not to mention the 3-month outlook.
Bear in mind that these are 3-month periods, which should therefore tend to suppress much of the month-to-month variability.
We pretend we can identify past and anticipate future trends, but such trends are simply drowned out by the weather.
