  1. That is my point - that your location has gone below 10C during the summer, and I would be willing to bet it's gone below 10C a lot more than just 2 or 3 times! Even the centre of Leeds has gone below 10C more than that this summer (albeit it didn't go below 10C at all in July). Am I just explaining myself poorly, or what?
  2. Hurricane Irma

    Marco Island recorded 130mph, so definitely a bit windier than your typical British autumn storm, I think. I've actually seen a few people trying to make out that hurricanes are no worse than British wind storms.. do people really believe this?
  3. Hurricane Irma

    Looks like it made landfall at Marco Island.
  4. I'm not sure how I can make it any clearer. Temps below 10C are not at all uncommon in the summer. Your location definitely doesn't go months without falling below 10C. I bet it's fallen below 10C at least a handful of times.
  5. Not in Sheffield, that's for sure. Central London, maybe.
  6. Single figure night time temps occur all year in every month. What's so special about them?
  7. Hurricane Irma

    If the forecast for Miami all along was gusts of 70mph then nobody would have been evacuated. There's a video of Hurricane Katrina making its first landfall near Miami in 2005 as a Cat 1 hurricane and cars were driving around like nothing was happening. Even some people were just walking around casually. It definitely isn't a big deal to them.

    Doesn't make sense, does it?
  9. Hurricane Irma

    NHC updated just now and they are still going for a sharp N turn with landfall over Florida Keys and around 70 miles south of Tampa. Needs to make a very sharp turn soon for that to pan out.
  10. Hurricane Irma

    Sure he meant 929!
  11. Hurricane Irma

    It's bizarre, isn't it? What could possibly be causing it to move in that direction? It makes no sense. I'm going to make a call - Irma won't make landfall in Florida at all, forecast is completely wrong.
  12. Hurricane Irma

    If it does continue into the gulf, I'm sure weather forecasters will take a big hit in the public's eye. It will be seen as a giant c0ck-up.
  13. Hurricane Irma

    It weakened to a Cat 4, then regained Cat 5 status when it entered the warm waters just off Cuba.
  14. Hurricane Irma

    New Orleans never fully recovered and I'm pretty sure their population is still below where it was in 2005 prior to Katrina. Even if it didn't landfall in Florida it would still landfall somewhere. A landfall in Texas or Louisiana is no better - probably much worse.
  15. Hurricane Irma

    It's the difference between a catastrophic storm and a devastating storm. A Cat 4 hurricane is nothing to celebrate. A lot of people seem to be grasping at straws lately - even talking about the entire thing going off to Louisiana.
