|Look at this animation of the Jet Stream forecast. It's fascinating.
As you know , The Jet Stream is normally a nicely curved ribbon shape. It is now looping all over the place in a crazy fashion. Typical of El Nino events.
With such massive distortions and rapid changes to the Jet Stream, there is every chance that the wet weather could rapidly change to scorching and back again.
You hopes for hot weathermay well still come to fruition.
Here is the link. Hit the ANIMATE button
|Yup , I was hoping for a hot one to help demand for air conditioning units ! Nature obviously had other ideas !||ignoble|
|El Nino continues to wreak havoc with weather patterns this year. The affects of El Nino - the strongest for several decades- make the most severe impact towards the end of a year as the Pacific unleashes its pent-up heat and significantly alters global air currents and patterns. One can perhaps expect the normally steady Jet Stream to deviate greatly from regular seasonal patterns this year which will bring extreme weather conditions over the UK and Europe over the next few months. Looks like we have already been experiencing a conveyor-belt of heavy rain and storms brought in rapidly from the Atlantic this August compared to a normal year. I think there is a lot more to come. Lovely Bank Holiday weather for ducks! ALL IMO. DYOR. QP||quepassa|
|Tks Jeff ... good read||ignoble|
|Yes ignoble quite a bit of business outside the UK now so nice reading stories about contracts and how things are progressing. A good UK story on the blog today - selected for the NHS framework:- Andrews Sykes Group are delighted to announce successfully securing a place on the London Procurement Partnership NHS framework, having regularly provided climate control services to hospitals and clinics up and down the country prior to confirmation. This development has been ratified by the Official Journal of the European Union and allows the NHS and other public sector organisations to use our equipment as a pre-approved supplier. LPP is an NHS-founded membership body which strives to work alongside associates to support the organisation and maximise its purchasing power. This then enables the NHS to continue offering high quality services and to reshape and improve the health care available to those who need it. This recent progress is applicable not just to London, but to other parts of the country too including the Midlands and both northern and southern England. Under the current structure, we have been selected as the company to provide flexible procurement arrangements whenever required, thus giving users within the charter an opportunity to source air conditioning maintenance assistance as soon as it becomes necessary. As a business, we have demonstrated a genuine commitment to aiding the healthcare sector over a number of years, and this has only seen us enhance our reputation during this period. From installing both temporary and fixed cooling solutions to carrying out upkeep on existing systems, our unrivalled depth of experience has seen us become one of the most trusted suppliers within this particular field. Our latest revelation now affords us a greater scope to further develop what is already a close relationship with the NHS, as we strive to achieve common targets for the benefit of those depending on services they provide.||jeff h|
|Thanks Jeff, Always good to see what they are doing in other parts of the World||ignoble|
|A few articles appearing on the Middle East section.
The latest one below seems to be a large job:-
|Actually, Europe has been hotter than us, for longer than us so they must be doing quite well over there.||keithfox|
|Hopefully ! Plus Europe shared our temps ...||ignoble|
|Might do something for the aircon.||keithfox|
|Hottest July day on record. 36.7degrees recorded at H'row. QP||quepassa|
|Looks like the Heatwave is well and truly on its way ... Looks like your 90F may be on the low side, Keith and that , I believe is shade temperature !||ignoble|
|Thank Heaven for Air Conditioning !||ignoble|
|Maybe sticking my neck out a bit this early, but it could reach 90F in London next week sometime.||keithfox|
|Excellent News ... Not many sellers around of late or so it appears||ignoble|
|Weatherwise, looking like a heatwave developing. Watch this space, or watch the thermometer.||keithfox|
|The obvious way to ascertain the current holder of Premier House is via the Land Registry website - google "land registry search". In the Find A Property search engine input "WV1 4JJ" (postcode for Premier House" in the postcode field. This then brings up results which appear to show that the property is also subject to a lease. You can then search on either the freehold or leasehold tenures + subsequently buy online a copy of the title register for £3 each which will detail the parties interested in either the freehold or the leasehold. Apologies if I am teaching you to suck eggs!||speedsgh|
|Thanks, just that I didn't know it existed. If they had sold Premier House would they have to notify the market? To be honest, I have learnt a lot about the group as a whole and how they operate but I don't know too much about their properties. They sold the Charlton base for a lot of dough a while back, I wonder how many of their other depots are owned, and whether Premier House was owned by them? Any info appreciated. If Premier House was sold is there any way we can find out?||keithfox|
|keith - Andrews Sykes Properties Ltd is a subsidiary of Andrews Sykes Group plc. This is nothing unusual. Many companies will have a subsidiary company that owns the freeholds of properties from which they trade. This is just one of many subsiidiaries in the Andrews Sykes Group e.g. Andrews Sykes Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Ltd, Andrews Sykes Hire Ltd, Andrews Sykes Investments Ltd plus a whole host of others. The SIC07 Description of Andrews Sykes Properties Ltd is OTHER LETTING AND OPERATING OF OWN OR LEASED REAL ESTATE. Its principal activity is stated as "Acts as the United kingdom property holding company for Andrews Sykes Group Plc." The sole shareholder of Andrews Sykes Properties Ltd is Andrews Sykes Group plc which holds 2 shares.||speedsgh|
|Shame. If they owned Premier House and are leasing now there could be a nice one off profit in the interims. Did you know there was a company called Andrews Sykes Properties Limited based at Premier House with just 3 of the directors running it? Been going since 1995.||keithfox|
|Sorry Keith , I have no idea ! (and I thought that I knew most things about ASY) ... tut tut !||ignoble|
|They've changed head offices, does anyone know if they owned Premier House? I could probably find out but just being lazy, wondered if they were selling the old and renting the new?||keithfox|
|I bought a few of these recently. My trade didn't seem to show up in the list of trades on the LSE website later on (after the 20 minute delay or even hours later after the close). Does this mean something? Was the trade done in a "dark pool" by my broker? I just have a regular internet trading account press a button get a quote buy or sell. I am used to seeing my trades show up. I'm just a Joe Bloggs investor I know nothing.||jbfnfn|
|Interesting QP , thanks||ignoble|
|Japan's meteorological agencies are warning the the El Nino of 2015 is growing stronger and its effects could last longer into the winter. The same agencies are forecasting that the El Nino this year could produce higher temperatures than ' 97-98, the strongest on record. Whilst mainly impacting on Asia, Australia and USA, it is clear that El Nino affects global weather patterns. The horrific unprecedented Texas floods which we all recently on TV were partly attributed to El Nino. Let's see what happens. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP||quepassa|
