Get your brollies and rain macs at the ready as the Met Office has issued a warning of heavy rain for later today.

The yellow alert, which means 'be aware', is valid for Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole from 2pm until 10pm.

The warning reads:  "Scattered heavy and locally thundery downpours are likely to develop across parts of southern England, the south Midlands and southeast Wales this afternoon, only slowly easing this evening. 

"The public should be aware of the risk of surface water flooding."

The Chief Forecaster said: A deeply unstable airmass is likely to affect southwest Britain later today associated with a slack area of low pressure over the English Channel.

"Some locally intense downpours are likely to develop giving 15 mm in less than an hour, and some 30 mm in 3 hours or less. 

"It looks as if the greater risk is across Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.  However, as often happens in these situations, rainfall amounts could vary markedly, with some areas missing the worst."

And we are expected to believe that we are all going to burn to death over the next hundred years because of the myth of climate change, they cant even get the weather right for the next two weeks.

I think even the most sceptical voices accept that the climate has always and in now changing, most informed opinion also accepts that humankind is affecting the climate. Where you might have a grain of truth in your statement is being able to predict that change is much more debatable but climate is not weather so the ability of otherwise to predict the weather two weeks in advance is irrelevant. In the climate change debate.

Climate change myth is driven by those who would lose an absolute fortune is the real truth was told.

But the 'global warming' experts predicted horrendous changes twenty years ago which should have happened by now. But the planet did not warm up, so they rebranded themselves about ten years ago to 'climate change' experts - and reissued the same unfulfilled doom laden predictions.

But still nothing happened, so more recently they announced that we were in the middle of a 'climate pause' - something of course they had completely failed to predict - and renewed all their same old doom laden predictions - this time with new support from the establishment media who are interestingly beginning to report every unusual but far from exceptional weather event as if it were the end of the world!

And why not, a lot of gullible people keep falling for it and coughing up 'green' taxes without protest. Thank goodness at least some of us recognise a huge scam when we see one!
