  1. I've never understood why some people wish for 'extreme' heat - what's so good about sweating as soon as you move, a baking car, a headache due to oppressive heat and humidity, not being able to sleep at night, and so on? 21C is perfect for me. Why do the temps need to be 28C or above? What's the benefit? It's not like winter where people understandably want really cold temps and suitable precipitation to get a good fall of long-lasting snow. But, hell, we're all different .........
  2. I do believe that some in Wales could call this event a 'damp squib' (or a damp squid if you really want to).
  3. Well for my part of Wales that was truly pathetic - very light snow for a short while, nothing settled despite low enough temps and, form looking at the radar, there's no more to come. I'm not that fussed but the forecasts were definitely showing at least 1 or 2cm for my area.
  4. A few small to moderate flakes in the air here with a temp of 2.3C
  5. This is what happens when you live on an island with a large body of water to your west, a direction where the winds and weather systems usual come from.
  6. I've been pondering that too - surely if it's the most accurate then it's now showing the most favoured outcome? Or is that only when it shows what people want to see?
  7. The thing with the weather is that we can't change it - what will be will be.
  8. Minor typo there John, I believe that should be SSW. Thanks for the links.
  9. It's good that the rain will wet the soil and encourage new growth, the problem is that there's a hell of a lot of dead grass and plants around so as soon as the dry and sunny weather returns in a few days that dead grass, etc will quickly dry out and be a fire hazard once again.
  10. It's raining! At last! A few days of this and then hopefully back to the nice, dry and sunny weather. for the first time in ages I guess I'll be mowing my lawn in a couple of weeks.
  11. There's a noticeable drop in temperature as the cloud and rain approaches which would explain why the storm activity is dying down.
  12. I can report that the Carmarthen snow shield is still fully functional.
  13. For my area I've known it much colder (also cold spells that lasted for much longer) and also with far more snow. However this was the first time that I've seen drifting snow in this area for a long time - even though my area only got around 3 inches there's some very good drifts about. But, generally speaking, it was very average compared to some of the excellent blizzards that I've experienced over the past few decades.
  14. Well I've seen snow in the south at the end of April before so you never know ..........
