I thought last year was bad. But look on the positive, it's going to be warm, real warm.

I have just consulted the Mystic Vulcan Brolly.....it says "best take me to RIAT!". Last year it warned me not to go in trainers with holes in...sadly I chose to ignore its words of wisdom... :clown:

How can anybody forcast the weather that far in advance? In this country the forcasters have a problem getting it right within 24 hours!

"Are you lucky enough to be heading off to this event? If so, then the weather is likely to play a major role. Loads of sunshine and you'll need the hat, loads of rain and you'll need the boots."

Call that lucky! So it looks. You don't say. :lol: :lol:

all we can do is just wake up on the Saturday and hope that I need the factor 500 as I burn really bad and that it is a nice day.

Is this serious? I am hoping I am missing the joke.

Weather forecasts 2 months away!!!!

I think a few more people need to get out more.

Mind you with 858 mph winds being forecast... perhaps I need to get out more

and in the same paragraph..."but the signs so far are that it will be warmer than our last two summers and conditions could well trigger its heatwave warning system".

That's positive enough for me!

Swings and roundabouts.

Not sure I should say this, but I have it on the highest authority that there will be weather at this year's RIAT.

However, I have signed a confidentiality clause that prevents me from saying any more than that.

That all depends really, if its clear blue skies then its "nil weather" is it not?

Is Confidentiality Clause any relation to Santa?????

Hardly - I mean, we all know Santa Claus doesn't exist, don't we?

Thinks - "Should I really have said that?"
