What is Nadine going to do?

Heysham Obs
Wonderful weather this morning, no need to get out of bed other than normal work-related activities.  The next few days, however, are a bit of a forecaster's nightmare.  A 'dartboard' called Nadine is sat near the Azores and may end up over us by Sunday evening........or may not.  Tomorrow morning now has some possibilities with rain ceasing/very much easing off at dawn and a decent NE wind.  There is high confidence that Saturday will be a rare example this autumn of a calm clear good vis mig day with hopefully a few grounded bits and bobs, then Sunday morning may or may not produce the goods off a strengthening easterly
