Bad weather warnings
New information from the space
The Navy serves the weather
The power of weather
Weather prevents new records
The Met Office and the Environment Agency are warning the public to be prepared for possible travel difficulties as many areas see 20-40 mm of rain and some areas see up to 80 mm falling by the end of Monday. Steve Willington, Met Office Chief Forecaster said: “A deep area of low pressure is moving North from the Bay of Biscay and will bring a very unsettled kind of weather to all parts of the UK this week. The public should keep up to date with the latest forecast and warnings for their area on our website and with forecasts on TV and radio. Everyone should be prepared for effects of heavy rain and strong winds as they combine to bring the potential for travel problems and localized flooding over the next few days”.
Metop-B was launched by a Soyuz Rocket from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, yesterday and once in orbit will collect critical data for weather forecasters, such as the Met Office. Along with its partner satellite Metop-A, it will orbit the Earth from pole to pole at an altitude of around 800 km, taking measurements including temperature, humidity and cloud properties, as well as snow and ice cover, sea surface temperature and land vegetation. EUMETSAT will take over control of the Metop- B satellite from the European Space Operations Centre on 20 September 2012, and will spend around six months checking the performance of the satellite in orbit and validating all data taken from its observations. Once this is completed the Metop-B satellite will be declared operational.
The Royal Navy submarines are to play a potentially important role helping map the effects of climate change deep under water in the world’s coldest environment. Very little is currently known about the areas of water beneath the ice of the Arctic as sensors for long-term monitoring are difficult to place. However, submarines, including those based at Devonport, routinely travel through these remote areas and now the information that crews gather will be made available to scientists. Tim Clarke, a marine scientist at the Ministry of Defence’s Science and Technology Laboratory, said it would make a big difference.” What this represents is the availability of important scientific data, previously inaccessible, which can only move the study forward”, he said.
One of the most famous climbers of all time, Apa Sherpa, who has conquered Everest a record 21 times, says he may not be able to do it again. Why? Because climate change is making the world’s highest and most dangerous peak unclimbable. Apa , popularly known as the “Super Sherpa” , who first conquered Everest in 1989, told AFP that the absence of snow on the mountain concerns him greatly. He said: “In 1989 when I first climbed Everest there was a lot of snow and ice but now most of it has just become bare rock. That, as a result, is causing more rock falls which is a danger to the climbers”.
A major winter storm brought very strong winds across much of the UK on 3-rd of January, 2012. The worst affected area was southern Scotland. In this area, this storm was judged as the most severe for 13 years- since 26-th of December, 1998, with wind speed exceeding those of the recent storm of 8-th of December, 2011. Very strong winds were also experienced across much of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. This storm was followed by a further extremely windy period from 4-th to 5-th of January,2012 – with further damaging winds across northern and eastern England. These storms followed a particularly turbulent time of weather from late November to mid- December.
The idea of creating a weather forecast using dynamic equations was first put forward by English mathematician, Lewis Fry Richardson, in 1922. He realized the dynamics of the atmosphere could be modelled by doing thousands of equations, thus being able to predict the weather. In a pre-computer age, however, the only way to apply his numerical method was by hand. He estimated it would take 64,000 people to perform the calculations needed to make a forecast in time for it to be useful. While this wasn’t practical, Richardson’s theory formed the basis for weather forecasting as technology improved.
The weather can have a huge impact on sports – from cycling to surfing, cricket to beach volleyball. As the UK’s national weather service, we’re always there when it matters, applying our science so that people can make the most of the weather. Many sports are affected by the weather in some way and conditions are important to athletes and spectators alike. Sometimes the impact of weather on sport is clear for all to see. It can help or hinder – headwinds make running and cycling harder, while tailwinds help push us forward. Some world records are invalid if set under certain conditions. Most of those participating in indoor sports like squash or badminton aren’t too worried, but for sports like hockey or windsurfing, the weather is central to the entire event.

Purcell was a small man. He owned a pet shop. He sold cats, dogs, monkeys and birds. Each morning when he completed the routine of opening his shop, he sat down on a high stool behind the counter and read morning newspaper.
It was a cold rainy day. Mr. Parcell was reading a newspaper as usual when a customer appeared in the shop and said that he wanted something in a cage. “Something in a cage?” Mr Parcell was a bit confused. “You mean some sort of pet?”
“I mean what I said!” answered the man. “Something in a cage. Something alive that is in a cage.”
“Isee”, said the shopkeeper not sure that he did.
He started to offer different pets, but it seemed that the price was too big for the customer. At last he decided to have two white doves for five dollars. Mr Parcell handed the cage to him.
“Listen,” the man said suddenly. “How long do you think it took me to make those five dollars?”
Mr Parcell was in a state of panic, but he asked, “Why, how long?”
The customer laughed. “Ten years! I’ve spent ten years in jail. Ten years! Fifty cents a year!”
He took his cage and left the shop. Mr Parcell came up to the shop window to look at the customer who was holding the cage and looking at his purchase. Then he opened the cage and took the birds out. Soon they disappeared in the grey sky.

Neil: Hi, Jessica! I thought about going to the movies or to the park yesterday. I called you but nobody answered.
Jessica: Oh, sorry I missed it. It was Ronny’s birthday yesterday, and it was noisy there. I just didn’t hear you call.
Neil: Ronny’s birthday? I didn’t know about that. Was it fun?
Jessica: Oh yes! Ronny has just come back from France he worked there for two months. And he talked a lot about it.
Neil: Worked in France? Why France? And what did he do there?
Jessica: He actually wanted to do a summer job to earn some pocket money. And he also wanted to travel. And he needed to practice his French as he’s going to university in two years time. That’s why he went there.
Neil: And what kind of job did he do? He’s not qualified for anything yet, is he? Too young.
Jessica: That’s right. But he was lucky. His family has good friends in France. And the friends needed an au pair for a couple of months.
Neil: They needed what?
Jessica: Not what but who. They needed an au pair. Au pair is a French word for a baby sitter.
Neil: Ronny … doing babysitting! I can’t imagine that!
Jessica: Neither ca I. but he said he enjoyed it. The French family has a seven year boy and Ronny looked after him every day from 10 am till 4 pm. He taught him how to play football and how to play chess. And he also taught him a little English. The boy was delighted.
Neil: I’m not surprised. Every kid would wish for a baby sitter like Ronny. It was really fun for the boy, I bet.
Jessica: It was. And after 2 pm Ronny was on his own. He said he made several friends there. And they went to Paris together every weekend. Ronny is crazy about football, you know, and once they even managed to see the French national football team playing against the Italian national team at the Stade de France stadium outside Paris!
Nail: Wow! Now I see why he enjoyed his summer. I wouldn’t mind doing babysitting myself if it gave me a chance to see the coolest teams and matches.

London has many beautiful old buildings and monuments. See Big Ben and the houses of Parliament, which stand on the River Thames near Westminster Abbey. Go down the river to the Tower of London, and visit St. Paul’s Cathedral too.
People come all over the world to visit the British Museum. For art lovers, the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square has a beautiful collection of paintings, and so has the Tate Gallery in Westminster.
