  1. James Madden... there's a name I'd fortuitously forgotten. I wonder what Jonathan Powell is up to these days.
  2. Really impressive light show here with some pretty close strikes. Just saw multiple anvil crawlers in one go.
  3. Dorian looks as potent as Juan in 2003. Can't think of the last time before then such a strong storm hit Canada. It's turning extratropical so it's hard to say whether or not it will officially be a hurricane at landfall. A sting jet, so dreaded in European windstorms, has appeared.
  4. Gone really autumnal here now. Second day on the bounce with heavy, frontal rain (in contrast with the convective thunderstorms which characterise most summer rainfall here). High today of 16.7C is the first sub-20C maximum since 30th May.
  5. Dorian is currently slightly east of the forecast track, so a Florida landfall is even less likely now (the eye could definitely come ashore somewhere in the Carolinas though). However, for the US right now the size of the wind field is more important than the exact track. The storm only seems to be getting bigger, which will not only increase the likelihood of strong winds along the coast but also the severity of the storm surge (which will probably be the biggest danger for the US).
  6. I haven't seen devastation like this following a hurricane since the Gulf Coast got wrecked by Katrina. It also reminds me of Homestead, Florida after Andrew hit. Shocking.
  7. Well spotted. There's also the scribbled-out name at the top. Why on earth someone from the Bahamas would be posting fake videos right now is beyond me. The ones posted above are definitely legit. Even mentions the name Abaco. Harrowing stuff.
  8. Elbow Cay in the eye now. About to move ashore over Great Abaco.
  9. 31C with an ice cold beer. Lovely. Another hot day tomorrow then a cooldown on the cards. September is still essentially summer here though so not counting any chickens yet.
  10. Got woken up again this morning by really loud thunder (that hardly ever happens). There's another storm warning valid from 2pm today all the way to 8pm tomorrow.
  11. Going bang big style here. Took about an hour's worth of footage then went back inside and was drifting off to sleep again when Round 2 woke me from my near-slumber with an almighty noise, I might have another look outside.
  12. Beast of a storm just moving away here, heading northeast through western Slovakia towards Poland. Almost constant strobe lightning at times.
  13. It's perfectly normal for the Atlantic basin to be quiet this early in the season. Activity usually ramps up in the second half of August.
  14. Stupava, Slovakia Pretty much average temperature-wise and cooler than June. June's heat peaked at the start of the month but it cooled down quickly. The second half was warmer. A rather dry month, though not as dry as June. Mean maximum - 28.7 Mean minimum - 15.2 Overall mean - 21.8 Highest maximum - 36.6 (1st) Lowest maximum - 20.1 (13th) Highest minimum - 19.9 (126h) Lowest minimum - 9.9 (9th) Days above 25C - 25 Days above 30C - 10 Rainfall - 32.1mm Days with rain (>0.1mm)- 13 Days with rain (>1mm) - 8 Wettest day - 13.1mm (27th)
  15. Could even be an all-time record for the site. Lerwick's record maximum is 23.4C.
  16. Back in Bratislava, it's not as hot as it has been (28C is normal for here) but it feels a lot more humid than before I left. I dried myself off after a shower yesterday morning and I was immediately drenched with sweat. The same thing happened when I was in Passau (lovely town) at the weekend. Before that I think it was Shanghai in 2009.
  17. Looks like that's round one coming to a close. Short but sweet. Not constant lightning but very bright and impressive when it appeared. Still getting flashes and rumbles to the north but diminishing all the time.
  18. Still 27C in Crosby past midnight. An exceptionally warm night so far. How high it stays will depend on how long it takes the thundery rain to get here and how potent it will be when it does.
