Seems those lovely 945 mbars escape Russia once more. From the models all I could see is 1010-1000 and that's pushing it as well. As mentioned in another weather topic my current record of low air pressure is 707 mmHg and it was in spring. Been keeping hourly pressure and temperature data, would be lovely if those two storm systems pushed down the monthly air pressure averages in Moscow to below 737-740 mmHg.
And do imagine those storm systems in the summer. With the ocean water being warmer then usual, we might just get a teeeny chance of a true hurricane forming off the coast of Great Britain. Or at least a huge extratropical cyclone. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
It's now -4 outside, it's overcast and the moon is shining a ring though high clouds. The clouds themselves are flying very fast to NW to feed your cyclone with fresh moist air I assume. But it's rather still and quiet on the ground, no wind, no birds. Just a few car sounds from the closest motorway. Maybe it's the calm before the storm?edit on 8/12/2011 by RumET because: Added the current weather situation.

I believe it's more then just a Low Pressure system you're struggling through. I think such a thing is called an Extratropical Cyclone. Basically a swirling mass of clouds formed outside the equator in the north. Polar Lows and such are also counted in. Sounds niftier as well ^^ But I might be mistaken, Russia doesn't offer amateur meteorologist course, so I have to do with what I find online and in old Norwegian weather forecasting books from 1930ies.edit on 8/12/2011 by RumET because: Added some niftyness.

The OP reference was to the netweather.tv. report. It is interesting that one of their contributors is the one and only Michael Fish - he of the "what hurricane" fame.
I wonder if there is bias in their reporting of hurricanes because of his past failure?
The British generally do not trust their own weather reporters.
The met office predicted a barbecue summer this year which was rubbish.
They also failed to predict the coldest winter for 100 years last December.
They also predicted rainstorms for the royal wedding, leaving thousands of spectators baking in anoraks in warm sunshine.
This led to a parliamentary enquiry this year.
So dismal were their predictions leading to lack of faith by the public that this has led to the UK government releasing met office raw data to the public this year so that they could have a go themselves.
I wonder what the economic cost of this huge over-reaction has been?
