  1. Heating on for the first time since March. I should've cleaned the dust out of the radiators. =x

      My heating is on too !! 

  2. According to the forecast, the wind is supposed to be gusting to 25mph at the moment. On my station, it is gusting to 1mph.
  3. Some fog around 3am, but none as the sun came up. Blue skies all the way, and little wind. Temp 17.2°C.
  4. After the fog had cleared, it was blue skies. It got pretty warm again, 18.6°C. I was certainly sweating while doing some garden maintenance.

    I wonder why people have started bashing weather companies long range forecasts? Let's be fair here, there's been quite a few members on here who have posted their long range forecasts in the past and have gotten them either partly wrong, or catastrophically wrong. The official Netweather Winter forecasts haven't always gone to plan either.. each individual/group will see things differently and base a forecast on their own knowledge - they won't all come to the same conclusion. There's also a minority in the hardened cold camp who are likely to be the ones to be doing the ridiculing because it doesn't show what they want to see.
  6. Down 4°C this morning. Currently blue skies and 17.2°C
  7. Very light drizzle all day here, very wet. It did not amount to much though, just 2.4mm. Temp maxed out at 14.4°C.

    I have a weather site. However, no seasonal forecast this year due to my super-computer being down for repairs after a Windows 10 update started randomly deleting files.
  9. A depressing day. I prefer it to be raining than having just damp & dull weather. Temp reached 13.1°C.

    Hi Paul. Yes, news notifications work fine. It's weird, they just suddenly stopped.
