  1. Finding this all too much as it is still 30C here. These sorts of temps are great on a beach in Ibiza with a pint of stella. Stuck in Peterborough isn't the same!
  2. Still 36C at RAF Wittering nr Peterborough at 6pm. Very unpleasant although the radar has cheered me up!
  3. After a short shower we are now back to 36C here in Peterborough. I see Cambridge is 38C!!
  4. My hotspot prediction is looking good as Cambridge is now 36C. 34C in Peterborough.
  5. 29C here. Massive increase of 4C within the last 30mins. For some reason RAF WIttering always lags behind other locations in E Anglia with regards to warming up. However this often catches up or even exceeds after lunchtime. Still think Cambridge is going to be the hotspot today with a temp of 39.5C.
  6. Im not disputing their forecasting skills. My point is do wind speeds of 40-50mph really warrant warnings? These kind of wind gusts are common during the Autumn/winter months. If the Met Office keep issuing unnecessary warnings then the general public will become complacent and ignore warnings that are needed. This is my last comment on this matter and we shall have to agree to disagree.
  7. During the so called storm the wind gusts were generally between 40-50mph in inland locations such as the midlands with the occasional gust between 50-60mph. I still maintain this does not make a storm in my opinion. We have to be careful because if we see warnings for trivial weather events i.e warnings for 2cm of snow from snow showers. What will happen is the general public will become complacent and no longer heed the warnings when something more significant occurs. By the way my comments were not just about the Met Office but generally across many platforms i.e newspapers, websites, forums etc.
  8. Top gust of 58mph here with 50mph generally across the Midlands. Call me old fashioned but years ago this would of just been a windy day. Now we call these storms as we lean towards more american type forecasts. In my opinion a storm is when gusts inland widely reach 60-70mph with exposed locations hitting 80-90mph.
  9. Gusts only around 40mph at the moment for my location and much of the Midlands. Obviously expecting this to increase but nothing exceptional.
  10. Rather OTT. At 08.50 Exeter airport was reporting windspeeds of 19mph. Not what I would call wild winds!
  11. Incredible to think I haven't even seen snow falling let alone lying snow. I believe the only time snow did fall was one morning around 5am but obviously I was in bed asleep. I started this winter by saying ignore background signals if the promise isn't being shown in the reliable timeframe. I also said I was going to ignore long range model output and stick with +144 with a passing glance to +240. Im glad I did and shall do so next winter.
  12. Incredible to think that on the 28th Feb last year the max temp in Peterborough was -5C!
  13. Thats the same as living in locations such as Egypt and moaning about the heat in summer. If you live in a location such as Edmonton in winter then you expect to be freezing. An incredible day today with the record being broken. Have to mention I also think we are looking at record breaking inaccurate long range forecasts. Never have I seen such inaccurate LRF's for this month after 40 years of following the weather!
  14. One positive of this winter is the poor homeless haven't suffered as much as they would have if a big freeze occurred. Cannot imagine what it must be like to be homeless when temps are well below freezing.
