The pitter patter of rain woke me at five this morning and have been awake ever since. Looks like it'll be a while before it clears.

Wellies to walk the dog then - it's rather scuppered my plans as i was planning on going poaching but can't be bothered with getting wet. Instead it looks like a couple of things I've been meaning to do for a while may well get done today. I've been building up to buy a circular saw but haven't quite plucked up the courage; its been nagging me though, like an itch that needs to be clawed.

The scenario is still not good for any decent waves over the next fortnight. The main problem is with the Azores high protruding a ridge due north at fairly regular intervals. It's made a couple of grasps with linking up with the Greenland high over the past few days and during the next week the same thing happens.

You can see it the high spread north here between Wednesday, Thursday, before a brief breakdown Friday before it happens again on Saturday. All this does is lock lows out, and had the added disservice of bringint in a northerly airflow over the UK.

This is text book springtime weather, and pretty much the opposite of what I'd prefer to see.
My advice would be to head to the Alps. It might be late season but those cold northerlies will bring plenty snow.
