And we are meant to be camping in this?

We are all packed and just about ready to go. The sun is shining brightly. However the weather forecast looks awful. The map is RED all over. Bearing in mind this is Benjamin’s first camping trip ever we are wondering how much fun it will be with the tent in rags and us being battered whilst semi-sumberged.

The trouble with weather forecasts is they are only ever right if you ignore them.


Here is what the forecast on says:

A developing area of low pressure will cross the UK during the course of Saturday and overnight into Sunday, some heavy rain and strong winds will develop across a large portion of the UK, but especially across Ireland, Wales and England.

Rain will push into extreme Western parts by the end of Friday and continue to progress Eastwards throughout Saturday. Some large rainfall totals are possible, especially across upland Western regions where in excess of 25mm to 35mm of rain is possible, this bringing the risk of some localised flooding after recent heavy rain. Strong to gale force winds will also be an additional hazard for a time across coasts and hills with hill fog also expected.

A combination of the heavy rain, strong winds and hill fog will create some hazardous travelling conditions.Conditions will slowly improve into Sunday as the low pressure clears away to the East of the country. – Global Weather Forecasts – [Updated on 01 September 2006 at 11:00] – Weather Feeds – Live Data – Long Range Weather Forecasts
