  1. it must be the driest summer here in Cardiff for a long while. There are cracks in the grass and its quite burnt yet still people are saying its not been a good summer. this is totaly imby i appreciate that but even work colleagues are sayiing its been okay when i guess it will be the driest summer for quite a few years.
  2. Not rained in Cardiff for 12 days. Been mostly warm for the last 7 days as well. Think its about 1 days rain in 3 weeks. Ground is rock solid now. All change in the next few days but its been a great start to summer here. Unfortunately as happened last year work have ordered fans because its been too hot in the office. They did it last year and didn't have one hot day after that. Hope its not the same this year. edit. there may have been the odd 5 minute shower and i mean the odd one but nothing of any note whatsoever.
  3. we've had a lovely start to the summer down here. one day of rain in the last two weeks. warm temperatures and warm nights. really nice to be fair.
  4. Looks like only snow on the very top of Pen Y Fan which is a bit surprising
  5. that happened 5 years ago. Didn't get above 2.9 in central cardiff today. thats below average.
  6. anyone that says the weather they are getting is pathetic is a mystery to me. You can't control the weather. You never will be able to control the weather. You can go to other places that have better/worse weather. That is all you can do. Using words like pathetic is pathetic and people should concentrate on things they can effect like what your having for tea.
  7. i've never quite got why people love storms unless its to clear a particularly long hot spell. in the summer why do people crave storms which limit any outdoor activity?
  8. i'm the one with no knowledge and would appreciate a section where those that know more about these things can tell us what is likely to happen in the more reliable timeframe, ie, next 2 or 3 days.
  9. yeah my main moan is there is nowhere on this site to tell us with no knowledge what is going to happen in the next few days. On the model discussion its always whats going to happen next week. Its rather frustrating.
  10. they die because they are old and are succeptable to any deviant in temperature. old people die when its 12 degrees but doesn't get reported. we have the least extreme weather in the world.
  11. how many people have ever died from the cold in uk?
  12. how many people have ever died from the heat?
  13. although not the coldest of spells Roath lake is partially frozen over last night which hasn't happened for 3 years.
  14. guess what, there were plenty of years with no big snow events.
  15. anyone got a decent link to the Storey Arms webcam? Seems nigh on impossible to find it these days?
