Some gales blowing in places, but nothing like we had the other day. But heavy rain is starting to fall across parts of north-west England, particularly in Cumbria. There is a risk of big puddles, surface water and spray on the roads, perhaps a little bit of localised flooding. The weather working southwards and eastwards throughout the day. But this afternoon Northern Ireland and Scotland brighten up quite nicely and we will see some sunshine later on.

Some blustery winds as well. A south-westerly wind is bringing some mild air in towards our direction, and also this pipeline of cloud, pretty grey skies for many, and some outbreaks of rain, as we have already seen across Scotland. Into Northern Ireland and parts of Wales as well. We really will see quite a lot of rain today and it could even give some poor travelling conditions with lots of surface water and spray on the roads.

“[For] one out of every six people in the world," he points out, "the majority of their water, that they use for drinking and agriculture and industry, comes from snow.” To design the satellite, 100 SnowEx scientists are teaming up to figure out the best ways to remotely measure snowpack’s depth, its water content, how surface dust and temperature affect snow, and more. As a first step, they’re putting snow sensors above the earth — though not as high as a satellite, yet. At busy, noisy Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Kim points over his shoulder at a big propeller plane. The plane has an unusual bumpy nose and pointy tale. He says that's because the plane is equipped for measuring snow. “The airplanes carry the sensors of the same type that would eventually be on a satellite,” he said. Inside the plane, half a dozen scientists are fine-tuning 10 kinds of weather sensors, including microwave and laser.

I’ve been doing this for years and I have to get this off my chest. I’ve seen hundreds of B2B campaigns- good ones, bad ones, mediocre ones. I’ve seen brilliant ones that turned targets into leads at amazing rates and I’ve seen ones so bad that digital tumbleweeds practically blow across the landing page. There’s no excuse for getting it wrong. There’s so much good advice available on solid best practices. Really, a little research would have helped avoid so many bad campaigns I’ve seen. There is one piece of conventional wisdom that keeps popping up however and it’s very wrong. When it comes to landing pages, there are lots of people working with a bad, wrongheaded, and silly idea. This nonsense idea is that longer forms will get you better leads. It appears wise on the surface. Leads that fill out the longer form are obviously more interested and have a more pressing need for what you’re selling, right? Shorter forms get you more leads and longer forms get you better leads is the standard line of thinking.

Gold and silver producer Klondex Mines Ltd (TSE:KDX, NYSE:KLDX) said on Friday its completed 2016 surface exploration drill program at its Fire Creek mine in northern Nevada yielded up to 5.2 metres of 14.6 g/t gold. The company also said that the Fire Creek district could be much larger than what is currently known. The following drill results are not included within the mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates released on Sept. 14. Fire Creek mine surface drilling highlights FCC-0068: 0.43 ounce per ton gold over 17.1 feet, or 14.6 grams per tonne over 5.2 metres -- West zone; Including 3.92 ounces per ton Au over 1.0 foot, or 134.5 g/t over 0.3 m; FCC-0065: 0.95 ounce per ton Au over 5.0 feet, or 32.5 g/t over 1.5 m -- West zone; Including 2.36 ounces per ton Au over 1.8 feet, or 80.9 g/t over 0.5 m; FCC-0061: 0.56 ounce per ton Au over 1.

It's been almost a year ago since we first heard from designer Eduardo Umaña. He said he wanted a bit of our time to talk about time itself – specifically keeping it with the minimalist timepiece he designed as an expression and homage to Scandinavian simplicity, the Classic Engineering VARIO . He's returned with an unexpected follow-up, a lamp called the Classic Möbius . Named after the Möbius strip – the head-scratch inducing one- sided, twisted and nonorientable surface cylinderUmaña's most unusual light is sculpted carefully by hand using ceramic-like composite material strips first heated, then twisted and bent around a cork-base. Within each strip is incorporated an array of neutral white 4000K LEDs; the cork base houses a microphone and custom programmed microprocessor responsible for the light's most novel twist: whistle-controlled on/off operation.

We fixed an issue where the first ink stroke into the Windows Ink Workspace Sketchpad wouldnt enable the clear all button. We fixed an issue where the sample ink stroke seen in the Windows Ink pen, pencil and highlighter flyout would appear to blink when the flyout was first opened. We fixed an issue that could result in the new XAML scrollbar animation (as seen in Settings) becoming stuck in the transition state. We fixed an issue resulting in Microsoft Camera Front and Microsoft Camera Rear unexpectedly showing up, with barcode scanner icons, as optional devices to connect to in Devices Settings on Surface Books. We fixed an issue where explorer.exe might crash the first time an ISO file is double-clicked. We fixed an issue from the last flight where if the gateway host name was of the form [ipv6address]::port, Remote Desktop couldnt connect to the gateway.

About 85 percent of the river's flow originates as precipitation in the Upper Basin—the part of the river that drains portions of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico. The team found during 2000-2014, temperatures in the river's Upper Basin were 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit (0.9 degree Celsius) higher than the average for the previous 105 years. A megadrought in this century will throw all our operating rules out the window. To see how increased temperatures might contribute to the reductions in the river's flow that have been observed since 2000, they reviewed and synthesized 25 years of research about how climate and climate change have and will affect the region and how temperature and precipitation affect the river's flows. Water loss increases as temperatures rise because plants use more water, and higher temperatures increase evaporative loss from the soil and from the water surface and lengthen the growing season.

Ian Watson is in Copeland. What are people saying? It wasn't just Theresa May doing a victory lap in the constituency early on this afternoon. I think that's the message is certainly worrying any Labour MPs because that message very clearly is that the Conservative Party on the surface at least, can appeal, two people write across-the-board, not just a privileged few.

But as with most other kinds of car, fuel efficiency and low emissions are increasingly important and the A5 Cabriolet has to prove it wont break the bank for buyers. Image 2 of 26 Anyone familiar with the previous generation of A5 will instantly recognise the latest version. With the A5 selling well since launch, Audi has wisely avoided tampering with a style that customers obviously like. So although this is an all-new car, you’ll probably only notice detail changes. The headlamps are bolder and stretch back further and the grille has been made more prominent. Along with newly profiled bumpers, you really can see the differences when old and new are parked side by side. Although the exterior changes seem trivial, there’s far more to discuss under the surface. The mechanical platform is all-new and features Audi’s latest powerful, economical petrol and diesel engines, with a turbocharged petrol V6 in the range-topping S5.

Using a rubber spatula, mix until the liquid is absorbed and the ingredients form a sticky dough ball. Cover the bowl with a damp tea towel, a bowl cover, or plastic wrap and set aside in a warm spot to rise for 1 to 1½ hours or until the dough has doubled in bulk—be patient, especially in the cooler months. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat it to 375ºF. Grease three standard loaf pans (8.5x4.5-inches) with the softened butter. Spread a generous handful of flour—at least 1/4 cup—over a clean surface. If you are coating the loaves in seeds, spread the seeds out on a rimmed vessel such as a small sheet pan. Set a bowl with water and a pastry brush nearby. Using two forks, deflate the dough by releasing it from the sides of the bowl and pulling it toward the center. Rotate the bowl quarter turns as you deflate, turning the mass into a rough ball.
