  1. The milder and wetter it is the worse it is for me. Worst of all is when such weather dominates Christmas and the run-up to it. I felt ill looking at that chart from December 2015 - together with November absolutely the worst festive period I've ever experienced, and one I can hardly conceive ever being outdone.

    I'm not that bothered about darkness and lack of sunshine really as long as it's cold. For me it makes it feel more seasonal. When it's mild though it can pretty trying, like last Christmas when it was something like 11C every day and 8C at night under an unremitting grey blanket. I'm hard-pressed to even call that "weather".

    Thankfully now my experience of UK winters is restricted to a couple of weeks around Christmas time. In Bratislava the main bugbear is slush and ice: it snows quite often but also often thaws partially when the temperatures creep above zero. Still, if the weather here isn't up to my standards the nearby hills usually are. I can also head north into colder regions quite easily. In any case having spent most of my winters in the snow-vacuum that is Liverpool I can't really complain.

    Can't wait to experience Ukraine the week before Christmas either. 

  2. Raining here today but it's been very dry of late - 52.1mm in the first nine days of September but only 3mm for the rest of the month. The Danube is at a low level, exposing sandbanks, and a small offshoot of the river near here has dried up completely!

    Might see our first air frost on Monday night. 

  3. 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).

    As steve murr has pointed out, they have the christmas tree up well early, maybe a possibility of this clip being from christmas 2016, typhoon nock-ten

    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.

  6. 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.
