  1. Far north and northeast of England - regional chat

    I had 26.2C in Gilesgate, Durham this afternoon, but not confident in it. Anyone else near Durham get anywhere near this?
  2. Far north and northeast of England - regional chat

    Our biggest problem at the moment is drifting snow. In exposed parts it’s about a foot deep across roads and pavements. There’s a 2ft drift outside our front door, with 2ft icicles hanging above the back door. Brutally cold too.

    Durham is getting a pasting. Horizontal powder blizzard for about the last 2 hours now. Drifting in the wind. I imagine it'll be like this most of the day. Had a meeting at 12 with a mate from Shildon, but that's cancelled as he's snowed in too.

    0.7 degC air temp and -4.0 degC dewpoint
  5. Model output discussion - heading into 2018

    Looking to be a repeat of two weeks ago then, with the main snow band crossing the south and little action for the north. Oh well .... 😳
  6. Christmas Eve Gale of 1997

    Remember it well. Lost a couple of slates which fell onto a neighbours car, which was parked in front of my house. Insurance company claimed it as an ‘Act of God’ and wouldn’t pay out. He didn’t park in front of my house any more after that.

    Nice little patch of pink there over Durham and North Yorkshire. In my experience we’d need an onshore N-Easterly for that to come about. Is that likely do you think?

  9. Some vacuum cleaners to be banned

    Some of them are drug addicts, so quite right too.
  10. Is Everything Getting Smaller?

    Toffee Crisps! In fact, most chocolate bars. Wagon wheels were as big as Wagon Wheels when I was a kid.
  11. Sleeping is another world.

    Did you know that you can only go about 10-11 days without sleep, then you die? Sleep is vital for cleansing the brain of toxins. All the nasties are cleared out by cerebrospinal fluid.
  12. What ever happened to ?

    I know, you’re asking for a friend
  13. Things that tick you off?

    Never really did night clubs at all. Currently Durham has the 2nd worst nightclub in Europe (no it’s true). It’s called ‘Klute’
