I'm getting pretty sick of this constant pattern of zero wind on the weekends with (potential wind at least) wind on each side.

see pattern below


Is it possible KRudd is trying to convince us to give up sailing, so Oakagee can go ahead without any angst?

Is it possible to find out who is responsible for this obvious cruel joke being played on windsport enthusiasts?

Well today’s current graphs, look nothing like predicted Unless of course your on top of that bloody hill at Rotto where the meter is
Then again BOM indicated it was going to be a dud anyway
So lets forget the daylight saving malarkey, and set up a wind saving program, we move the weekends to any two days we want, to suit the potential

No actually Peter who works at the BOM just found out his boyfriend has been having an affair with a Kitesurfer (Greg) So he's deliberately sabotaging the forecast to upset the stringers.

In a few weeks the cycle will move forward a couple of days and we will have wind on the weekend. Until then we just go insane[}:)][}:)] and get all odd jobs done and rack up brownie points

Trouble is in a couple of weeks the weather patterns will change

'Tis orright though, couple of weeks and I'll have a shed to do odd jobs in when there's no wind

yes yet again the bomb promise the wind through the week only for the green arrows (even yellow arrows would be welcomed) to evaporate the morning of the said forcast...eh... hang on a sec its still forcasting 18 knots half an hour ago????? and the reality is 2 to 3 kn!!!
i fully believe weather forcasters are full of s@#T!!
the weather girl last night said there may be squalls to 45kn!!! ...i nearly choked on my quiche!
maybe she was talking about the antartic

Laurie is recycling the graphs

This graph was posted by Grumps on the 5th of June. See his first post.



And this graph is the current graph for today the 11th of June.

Yeah Nebs is right, somehow I've copied the graphs in so that they are showing the actual forecast .... either I'm a genius or a complete idiot ... not sure yet

anyway doesn't matter ... the end result is NO WIND ON THE WEEKEND
