I noticed an error in Tuesday’s weather extremes posted by the Met Office for the UK. The error was regarding the 13.0 hours of sunshine that Aviemore supposedly reported for Tuesday. I reckon this is an automated product because I have seen errors in it before and as far as I can see the daily sunshine in their 06 UTC SYNOP was missing. I tweeted to inform them, but obviously they don’t monitor anything they publish, and very rarely engage with any member of the public who make comments even if it is to tell them they made a mistake. It reminds me of the Met Office Press Teams blog, in which they again very rarely if ever reply to a comment. That still rankles with me because I have been effectively banned from posting comments to that blog for a number of years.
