UK delivers world's most accurate weather satellite instrument

Jos Buttler's stunning 50-ball century took England to 373 for three against Pakistan in the second one-day international (ODI) at Southampton on Saturday. Roy, fit following back trouble that kept him out of Wednesday's washed out opener of a five-match series at his Oval home ground, hit medium-pacer Faheem Ashraf for two huge sixes — a drive over long-on followed by an extravagant uppercut over extra-cover. Team officials had always planned that this five-match series would act as a final audition for places in tournament hosts England's 15-man squad for the World Cup, which starts later this month. Pakistan: Sarfaraz Ahmed (captain), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Abid Ali, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Yasir Shah, Hasan Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Junaid Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Amir, Asif Ali England: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood England vs Pakistan, 2nd ODI: Match Prediction – Weather Report, Pitch Conditions, Playing XIs and Live Streaming Details Fakhar has failed in both the matches against England now and should be amongst the runs in this game to shrug off any worries about his form heading into the mega event. It has been raining in Southampton and the things are not expected to improve on the match day as well.

Southampton tech creates world's most accurate weather satellite

Probable XI: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (C), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Joe Denly, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett. New high-performance infrared detectors made in Southampton are to improve short-range weather forecasts. The Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer New Generation (IASI-NG) instrument is an international collaboration effort between Leonardo, Airbus Defence & Space, and the UK and French space agencies. "Thanks to cooperation between UKSA, CNES and the French industry, the socio-economic benefits of the innovative IASI-NG instrument will be substantial," said Alain Gleyzes, Head of Earth Observation Projects, Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES). Using high-performance infrared detectors made in Southampton, the new device will improve short-range weather forecasts by monitoring atmospheric instability and cloud structure.

The Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer New Generation (IASI-NG) instrument is an example of outstanding international collaboration between Leonardo, Airbus Defence & Space, and the UK and French space agencies. The miserable conditions are expected to continue over the weekend, but we could get an early taste of summer next week. Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said: "As we go through to the end of the week we will start to see temperatures begin to edge up although there will still be the risk of showers and some heavy, thundery outbreaks. "With high pressure we expect blue skies and sunshine and thereafter the rest of May is looking largely dry with temperatures around where they should be for the time of year." He said: "There is the potential for an early switch to summer-like weather this year after the unsettled and cooler start to May. A weather forecaster for The Weather Company said temperatures will rise above average for the time of year after the weekend. They added: "Wet and windy weather will continue through the remainder of this week with temperatures slightly below the seasonal average, feeling cooler in the wind for northern and western areas.
