  1. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at4+shtml/023403.shtml?cone#contents Went from being 10% chance of development yesterday to a TS overnight.
  2. I still think of him occasionally and wonder what he's up to like you would anybody who you used to know. I know he's married and happy so that's cool. Feels like many lifetimes ago. Never tried to rekindle, wanted out of it a long time before I ended it. So yeah, I was over it a very long time ago. Sadly I still occasionally suffer the mental effects of how things ended, but hey ho. I'm glad we didn't stay together, we were very different people and I would have been desperately unhappy.
  3. Tropical Tidbits is showing a lot more activity coming off Africa over the next few days, but things have been unusually quiet. NHC have upgraded their forecast to now be above average. Not sure where they are getting that from, but they're the experts!
  4. It's so urgh today, I was tempted to put the heating on but then I realised it's August and refused!
  5. I know it's not unusual to not have had a had a hurricane now, but only 2 mild named storms and absolutely nothing on the horizon is unusual. However NOAA have now revised their estimate to say they think it will be an above average season. If that's the case the next 3 months are going to be intense!
  6. We were saying last night that there's a distinctive chill in the evening air that signals the closing of summer. Indeed there's no real heat that I can for the foreseeable future. Hoping for an Indian summer to finish Summer.
  7. My friend is getting married today and they really wanted the ceremony to be outside, but that's not going to happen now. But rain or sun, I'm sure she'll have an amazing day. Storm chances have been decreasing the closer we've got to today for me, also gone from all day rain, to just morning rain.
  8. The potential on the CV storm is bubbling up very quickly. Would mind betting this will be our first Hurricane of the season.
  9. And so begins what looks like 48 hours of solid rain. There goes my plans for doing anything in the garden.
  10. Well a storm finally rolled to the West of us last night about 4am. Never got directly overhead and lightning was mainly elevated but almost continuous rumbles..
  11. Quite gutted I missed the only storm this year when I was in Vegas. Feel like I'm well overdue!
  12. Nothing happening here. I do hope this isn't it.
  13. Humidity has shot up! Damn! Need a storm to clear the air!
  14. Ooooh. Right in the sweet spot if this comes to be.
  15. It's hot enough out there without the added 'heat' in here. Please keep it civil and report any issues to us rather than sniping. Ta
  16. About half 5 but got a meeting after work so it will be more like 7.
  17. If the storms could wait until later in the evening, that'd be great. I want to be home to enjoy them!
  18. Vegas was the hottest place I've ever been. Temps were low 40s every day but feels like temps were more like mid to high 40s. Felt like I was living in an oven for a week. That was definitely too hot! Don't think we've ever had long enough sustained very high temperatures here for me to wish for cool weather.
  19. Feel like I'm a population of 1 enjoying the heat! Will be interesting to see what tomorrow brings. Hopefully top it all off with some big storms.
  20. Nothing here last night I don't think. Looks like our chances will be better tomorrow.
  21. Got that lovely holiday heat out there. What causes that 'abroad' smell that you occasionally get on hots days here? You know, thst smell that smacks you in the face when you step off the plane?
