Depends on what weather you look at.

I have found the weather channel to be the most accurate (BBC is worst for predictions). It is mostly light rain / wind up to Tuesday night and Weds starts dry and bright with light rain from 2pm.

So it really depends on how light it is i suppose ... Confused


The BBC is hopeless. It forecasts no rain for my postcode (about 10 miles north of Crawley) and it has been chucking it down for the last hour.

Well it forecast heavy rain/showers for Crawley and it is chucking it down here! (And Redhill which is roughly 10 miles north has a forecast of sunshine and heavy blustery showers for the next couple of hours?).They have been pretty accurate all over the last couple of weeks from Bristol Rovers game onwards.
As for the Weather Channel "Light Rain"??!!!!! I would say we have no chance and it seems Charlton have the inflatable cover (despite their game already being called off!).

I think that is the Surrey Hills effect... the weather seems to become more unpredictable & localised the nearer you get to them... Dorking appears to have it's own personal weather-god..!

Forget the BBC, what have the ever done for us! Wink

The word from the Met Office Chief Forecaster -

Quote:
Further bands of showers running into southern counties have the potential to produce intense bursts of rain, these quickly leading to localised impacts given the very saturated ground. Hail will be an additional hazard associated with some of the heaviest showers. It won't be raining all the time, with some drier interludes likely but on the other hand, longer spells of rain may occur, more particularly in the southeast overnight into Tuesday and again, perhaps more widely, overnight into Wednesday. 15 to 25 mm may fall in around 6 hours at any time through this period, with overall 36-hour totals perhaps exceeding 40 mm at a few localities.


Tonight will be the problem time.

Expect a 9am or 10am pitch inspection tomorrow?

That's a good point. Redhill certainly has its own peculiar weather and it sits in a frost hollow.

Never mind, it doesn't matter which forecast we use, it seems increasingly unlikely that the game will go ahead tomorrow.

If it is postponed, when is the next likely date? I assume it is the following midweek.

More postponements could be to our advantage.

Assuming we get past the 2nd and 3rd rounds, when does Swansea's European adventure kick off again?

Or alternatively save the cash now and invest it in some drainage work in the summer sounds a better idea?

Latest Forecast -

Quote:
The band of heavy showers which crossed the south during Tuesday morning will be succeeded by more scattered showers, still with the odd heavy one. Rain is expected to return to parts of the region overnight but at present seems more likely to affect areas southeast of a line from the Isle of Wight to the Thames estuary. 10 to 20 mm of rain may fall in some parts of this area, with a lower risk that counties further to the northwest might also be affected.


Although it depends exactly where you place that line, looks like a postponement to me. Sad

Is this the club asking for financial help from the fans then? Wink

It does, but isn't there talk of the club doing this every year? Drainage/relaying the pitch etc..... Was it AW or Arlo who promised us the pitch was going to be dug up and replaced? We've had so many CEOs recently I can't remember. Don't hold your breath, Mick. The only thing that's been refurbished recently is Reggie.

Unfortunately (and I am not one to knock the club when they are doing what I think is a grand job) Reggie is the one thing they have really messed up (IMO)!

Gotta agree with you there Mick, Reggie has given us all great value over the years and his reward is to be re-styled as a Vincent Tan lookie-likey... out-flippin-rageous..! Razz
