  1. There's a surprise!...an increasing theme of recent years in breakdowns from hot conditions, and that is most of the thundery activity to be to the north or even Scotland - we'll see but I bet I'll just get the usual cloud and some rain in my location
  2. Starting to mirror June last year here in the south as it's raining here again...first few days warm and sunny but has gone down hill from there. Next week looks like settling down somewhat in a slack continental flow.
  3. Amazing how you have such an amazing memory for such insignificant things - who remembers such instances?...also an amazing reference to spring/summer months going back years and how you feel at certain temperatures. I bet you don't go out of your house when it gets below 12c ?
  4. Same here...just put a sweater on it's not that cold, as said before houses are designed to keep heat in and it never gets that cold in the summer to have to put the heating on (vague saying). Anyway let the moaning begin from those you expect to ?
  5. Yuck!...worse conditions than expected here on the coast of del Burnham, rain getting more consistent and somewhat heavier and only 13c!!. When are we going to have a decent T-Storm?
  6. Not quite the big temperature contrasts the Beeb talked about yesterday in today's forecast (here anyway)...touched nearly 21c here this morning compared to the 25c of yesterday and not much breeze to speak of.
  7. Why not?...more Springs months in my mind appear to he heading in the drier and sunny category and as we know certainly warmer.
  8. See today the ol' easterly wind is starting to pick up again...has been a cycle of this happening throughout this spring (mainly April onwards). Quieter period sunny, breezier period sunny, quieter period sunny, breezier period sunny and so on, the only difference was last week it was from the west but the same theme sunny and dry...even with the upcoming pattern change that northerly doesn't scream rain here.
  9. Agree but lawns and long grass fields soon stop growing and turn brown very quickly once the heat is turned up...I've watered my front lawn a couple of times in the last week but now starting to show the fore-mentioned signs, anyway can't remember too many years in May when this has happened. Will be interesting to see the state of play come end of June...if and a big if the weather continues in the same vain.
  10. Trying to remember the last time we had a 'bad' Spring/Summer Bank Holiday? - it feels like we don't get them anymore. Beautiful day here...
  11. A few spots of rain (trace) from a pathetic attempt from a shower an hour ago...I suppose that will be the lot for the next couple of weeks.
  12. I've got £50 of my hypothetical money says it won't, as for March being wet yes remember that and the start of April must of been unsettled too but the chart for May 2018 rainfall is a bit baffling, near normal, really?...can't remember much precipitation where I lived at all and a lot of sunshine. I wonder how accurate these MetO maps are? I know where I live is near to the driest place in the UK (St Osyth) and at times wonder if we have our own micro-climate particularly when it comes to rainfall.
  13. You're telling me a front went through? really?...a bit of cloud here now sunny/breezy and you must have been in the sweet spot for rain this month, the majority have seen less than that - currently 1.5mm in my local.
  14. Spring 2018 wetter than average in the south east?...all I can remember is largely sunny skies particularly in later April and May.
  15. In other words they (BBC (MeteoGroup) and no doubt others) were not very accurate, trying to predict convectional activity is precarious a few days in advance.
  16. Well an incredible spring so far if you like sun and a fair share of warm/very warm days but to be honest the absolute lack of any convectional stuff does make the weather a bit boring to follow - today's threat of convectional stuff wasn't even worth mentioning by forecasters over the last few days.
  17. Well so much for the thunderstorm threat...wasn't even worth mentioning on the BBC forecast yesterday. I've counted 1 day with a decent convection heavy shower/T-storm threat this spring and that's it, just feel like our weather is getting less varied.
  18. Looks like a repeat of 2018 could be on the cards...although there has been some nippy days this month. Now we've seen somewhat of a pattern change with more of an Atlantic direction to the wind it should mostly be off a warm/very warm Tm in the coming days.
  19. Didn't say it's not possible did I? just said the likelihood of being cool was slim - I know where my money would go. And yes correct on a cold winter happening again...
  20. To the theme of the three degrees...'when will we see rain again? when will share precious moments?' - a mighty 1.5mm of the stuff so far this month, oh well at least the weeds in the flower beds aren't growing at silly rates.
  21. I'm actually hoping for a cool summer which usually means more interaction from the Atlantic or a high pressure system displaced westwards, usually not all bad news as we generally see some more convective activity...the chances of this summer being cooler than average, pretty slim to be fair.
  22. All the hallmarks are there again, either high pressure to the north of us or over us or strong enough to the west or east...Atlantic has gone absolutely AWOL again and to think we had nothing but the Atlantic bar a few blips from October through to early March. Though with all that rain you'd think the reservoirs should be amply topped up to cope with any drought this summer.
  23. It really doesn't amount to much this up coming cold/colder spell as this warm period currently experiencing will do just as much for the CET as next week will for cold. Next week looks sunny and with the strength of the sun at this time of year you can guarantee some of the 'colder' days won't be far off normal (particularly in the south) - this has been the way for the last number of years - warm periods more than off-set the colder ones (when they do pop up, which is not often) but not a guarantee.
  24. Strikes me we don't get poor bank holidays in the spring and summer anymore...trying to think of the last poor one. Another sunny day but with the chance of some T-storms for a few going by Blessed Weathers above post. Happy VE Day everybody...'we'll meet again don't know where don't know when but I'm sure we'll meet again some sunny daayyy' ?
  25. Cloudy here and feels quite muggy with the temperature just short of 21c which is warmer than the past wall to wall sunny days...expecting some well needed rain tomorrow and by the sounds of it temperatures below normal for the first time in a while (here anyway).
