  1. Windiest day for a while here, torrential rain earlier but the sun is out now.
  2. Taking my mind off Covid for a bit, what are people’s most memorable Halloween’s/Bonfire Nights weather wise? Halloween 2014 sticks in the mind most for me, I remember working outside in the sun and it felt like August. 2008 I remember for how cold it was. Bonfire night I can’t remember that many memorable ones, I remember 2012 being quite cold and clear because all the smoke stuck around in air all night and until the next morning. I’m sure they are many more memorable ones.
  3. Another dismal wet day here, such a depressing month in every aspect. The wettest month I have recorded was February this year, only started my weather station 3 years ago though. Be interesting to see if this month will beat it.
  4. I can’t really remember much of 2005 but I know that the last part was really cold and frosty, I can’t remember any snow here though. 2008 ended cold and that led into early December where we ended up getting quite a dumping of snow in the first week. My school was shut for the first time ever it seemed that week.
  5. It was really surreal, the best way I can describe it was like living through a heavily filtered Instagram photo! I remember how mild it was the weekend before as well, it felt really warm in the strong Southerly winds.
  6. Yeah I agree with this, ever since One Dance topped the charts for about 20 weeks it has been mostly terrible. I have also listened to a lot of stuff from 2008-2015, guess I’m just nostalgic for normality ha
  7. Yeah I was a bit young but I agree about that era, love the house/dance music from then in particular 👍
  8. I’m only 27 but I agree that modern music is absolute garbage. This year in particular I haven’t even bothered looking at the chart with all that’s going on. It’s just Drake releasing TikTok friendly drivel and I agree what people are saying about mumble rap. It literally is the worst and most depressing type of music imaginable.
  9. Ah yes it would have been the 10th December, we did get some of the 27th December that year that was a nice surprise!
  10. 11th December 2017, we was supposed to get snow here but all we got was a a few flakes on the Sunday afternoon. Areas further south got a right dumping.
  11. I have developed a strong dislike for Villa over the past few years but fair play to them today. This match is absolutely crazy, Liverpool’s midfield and defence are totally non existent. Wonder if Klopp will have an Evra style breakdown after this 😂
  12. 9 years ago since the peak of this heatwave. It was a fantastic spell of weather, it did feel weird sunbathing at such a late time of the year however, most of the garden was in the shade because of the low sun angle and the sun felt really weak even though it was touching 30C. I also remember there were a lot more bugs and spiders about then usual!
  13. Yes remember October 2008, it didn’t snow here but we had some decent frosts for the time of year. The weekend of the 25th was a complete washout if I remember correctly and the colder air followed on from that. Sort of ushered in the colder period that followed for a few years. October 2012 had a colder period as well but we had no snow on that either, just a few genuinely cold and sunny days.
  14. I experienced the storm over Leeds, was possibly the most intense storm I have witnessed. It started at around 15:30 as a few rumbles and the odd lightning flash with some light rain and it seemed to pass over but then stalled. About an hour later all hell broke lose, the sky turned green and I noticed definite rotation as the storm seemed to pivot back towards us. The lightning was then constant and I have never seen hail like that before in my life, the whole road was white over for hours afterwards. It lasted around 3 hours in total. If it wasn’t a supercell then I can only imagine wha
  15. Yes I would definitely say today’s storm is one of the best ones I have ever seen. Never seen so much hail before. Didn’t expect that when I woke up to 9C and steady cold rain this morning!
  16. I did notice the rotation in the storm also, can still hear the thunder now. It was actually scary driving through it because I thought the windscreen was about to smash! It’s the closest I have seen to a supercell for many years anyhow.
  17. I have never seen anything like that before, when the sky turned green I knew something was coming but didn’t expect that! Multiple CG’s and the ground is white over with hail, temperature has is also dropped to just 4C. Absolutely insane!
  18. I remember the end of October 2008 being really cold with frosts. Not sure of the exact date but think it was around Halloween.
  19. Lightning and very loud thunder near Leeds, did not expect this today, better than the storms we had in summer!
  20. Thunder in Guiseley, had a few loud booms, didn’t expect this today!
  21. Yes definitely and noticeably lower in the sky, not complaining though!
  22. Fantastic weather here today, beautiful warm sunshine but you can definitely feel the weaker sun compared to a few weeks ago.
  23. Really noticed how low the sun was all day today, it went behind shade a few times when back in June our garden was in the sun pretty much all day. The UV levels were also noticeably lower.
  24. I’d definitely put 2019-2020 in the worst winters category, it was dull, wet, mild and boring and Covid has soured my memory of it. 2015/16 & 2016-17 are also up there (can barely remember much from 16-17). 2013/14 was awful but it was interesting from a weather viewpoint at just how relentless the storms were. I enjoyed 2017/2018 for its variety and also 2010/2011 (obviously for that unforgettable December). 2012/13 was good also, but the cold really did start dragging as it went all the way into April, the country felt like a barren wasteland until well into spring! 200
  25. I was on holiday in Lanzarote but I remember seeing videos all over snapchat and Instagram. I was actually jealous of the people back home seeing at how unbelievable the storms looked, I wasn’t jealous afterwards when the weather turned crap though! 😂
