  1. For the last few days the North Wales sea fog has been drifting inland. It couldn't quite get over the Snowdon range today but eventually burnt off in the afternoon heat. As temperatures droped this evening it's begun rolling back up the valley.
  2. Stark contrast in temperatures today. 13 in Aberdaron and 25 in Betws-y-coed. Sea fog was the problem but it couldn't quite manage to roll in over the Snowdon range.
  3. Set off from Snowdonia back to the Midlands earlier this morning in drizzle and thick hill fog. It cleared around Bala. Returned this afternoon to find sea fog rolling inland from the Llyn. Wide fluctuations in temperatures.
  4. Yep storm to my south. Thunder and lightning. Looks to be between Bewdley and Bridgnorth.
  5. That'll learn me !
  6. I didn't see any of it but did Russia annex part of the studio during the programme?
  7. Mrs Kar was going to get one but saw a couple of TV progs about them. Accuracy fluctuates widely on many of these devices by pretty big percentages so paying a lot for a top of the range won't guarantee better. A cheap and cheerful one as a guide would be my preference.... or a cheap pedometer for a couple of quid even!
  8. Plenty of snow in NW Snowdonia already overnight on the hilltops.
  9. Relentless rain Friday caused me problems with surface water off the hillside fields pouring through a retaining wall and up and over the back door. Not seen that happen before. Fortunately it slowed and we managed to avoid major ingress and damage.
  10. This snow will soon melt in this Spring heat.. currently 12°
  11. Both Clee Hills were white over this morning at 8am
  12. Local Press coverage. Woman killed by 'Storm Doris debris' in Wolverhampton city centre http://www.expressandstar.com/news/emergency-services/2017/02/23/storm-doris-wolverhampton-city-centre-sealed-off-by-police-outside-mander-centre/
  13. Oh dear.... Woman killed by 'Storm Doris debris' in Wolverhampton city centre http://www.expressandstar.com/news/emergency-services/2017/02/23/storm-doris-wolverhampton-city-centre-sealed-off-by-police-outside-mander-centre/
  14. Met Office showing 94 mph this morning for Capel Curig.
  15. A gust this morning has torn the felt off my wood store and a tree was down on the A41. Just as well I'm not up in North Wales today. Top 4 highest gusts are all from up there with Capel Curig at 79mph... scrub that Met Office now showing 94 mph!!
