Storm Ciara is set to bring a month of rainfall in one day to parts of the UK accompanied by winds of 80 mph in what is possibly the country's most widespread amber warning since records began, according to the Met Office.

Parts of England and Wales could see as much as 100mm of rainfall on Sunday which is more than the average rainfall of 97mm for the entire month of February.

If this is the type of thing that OpenIFS is supposed to deal with, they had better get going.

+18C in Antarctica today. (11C higher than Cambridge!)


Since there is no such thing as climate change, there must be severe Orgone Fields sweeping over Antarctica to cause all their thermometers to read so much higher than the real temperatures.

Media rather than news but The Life Scientific on Radio4 in less than half an hour has

Myles Allen on understanding climate change.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000fgcn

Edit: Just finished listening to it and even after several years of interest in the subject, I learned a few things.

Edit2:Url is active now. Seems BBC have changed their system so you don't have to wait after a programme finishes before it appears as a podcast.

Isambard 2 at UK Met Office to be largest Arm supercomputer in Europe

The UK Met Office been awarded £4.1m by EPSRC to build Isambard 2, the largest Arm-based supercomputer in Europe. The powerful new £6.5m facility, to be hosted by the Met Office in Exeter and utilized by the universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter, will double the size of GW4 Isambard, to 21,504 high performance cores and 336 nodes......

Isambard 2 will continue to support their efforts in developing future systems for weather forecasting and climate predictions...

Shall we see CPDN for ARM?

Re Isambard 2.

"Met to get a new supercomputer. https://news.sky.com/story/met-office-to-get-16312bn-supercomputer-to-improve-weather-and-climate-forecasting-11936162[/code]" -

1.2 billion investment has been confirmed for a state-of-the-art supercomputer to improve severe weather and climate forecasting,

A supercomputer which can forecast weather and climate 18 times faster than current technology is set to be developed. Data from the supercomputer will be used to inform Government policy as part of leading the global fight against climate change and meeting net zero emission targets.

Predicting severe weather and the impacts of climate change will be faster and more accurate than ever before, thanks to confirmation of £1.2 billion government funding to develop a state-of-the-art supercomputer, Business and Energy Secretary and COP26 President Alok Sharma announced today (17 February 2020).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
That's quite something.

Having said that, I have some sympathy with critics :-

But Clara Goldsmith from the Climate Coalition, the UK's largest group dedicated to action against global warming, says that while investing in such technology is important, "what's just as important is that we invest in solutions to climate change that will stop this problem getting worse".
and
But Eric Brotherton, from Ribchester in Lancashire, believes the money would be better spent now helping people like him who are repeatedly left to protect their own homes from flood water.
"£1.2bn on a computer?" he said. "No... It's got to be people first then the computer in my opinion."

Q: What is a whale worth?

A: Dead, it's worth about $80,000. Alive, it's worth $2,000,000.
