Hi All,In defence of the Meteorologists, precipitation, wind and temp. are usually pretty accurate but cloud cover is more more complex to predict.Having a view that it’s always cloudy in Britain depends on your perspective -like gary I am a variable star observer and not fussed by the moon or even a fair bit of cloud. Over an eight year period I have averged 150 nights per year, and I find that it’s rarely more than two weeks without some clear spells. I have experienced many occasions when it does not clear till after midnight, which for many is too late as work often dictates an early start the next day.Rob
