      Yes, the temperature has gone down to 19.C in South Ockendon according to my weather station which has it slightly lower at 18.C, while the Met Office has it at 17.C.

      The dew point is still high at 17C.

      criap?  Hmmm, a GOT indigenous term?  Sounds way better than crap.  THAT WAS PURE CRIAP.  My go to word of the month.  Thank you. 😊

      Well I was worried that crap might be considered offensive and the post deleted, got to be cautious these days with all the pc babaloox (another new word for you) that's going around.😋

      Looking forward to this, although we a bit disappointed with the last jedi. Think the best films of the new batch have actually been the standalone ones, rogue one and solo. 

  8. This year is flying by, April is already within GFS 384 range.

      It was something I remember very well as the last time I saw the forecast for London and the South East, it showed snow coming for Kent but not for Essex.  It was a lovely surprise in the morning when I saw the snow as I became very excited at the sight as I look out through the window at the front road. I needed to get to Grays for the appointment and I was prepared to walk to Grays a 4 mile walk as I thought the buses were not running.  The traffic was slower and more quieter than usual which pleased a lot as traffic noise causes me a lot of stress.  I did get the bus to Grays and arrived much earlier to my appointment where I had time to have a bacon sandwich and cup of tea at a local cafe.  If this type of snow event happened again I would become ecstatic. The snow in Thurrock was not mentioned in the London and South East local news.

  12. "I'm an Aussie and after you've been through a 48 degree (118.4 fahrenheit) week of non stop buring heat 37 degrees (100 fahrenheit) is a cool change. Stop your moaning UK."  Lol, a response to my YouTube upload of BBC news report of the hottest ever maximum in 2003. 

     

  13. Burns storm was 29 years ago today

  14. All this talk about global warming, CO2 etc and what did the world do at midnight? Pumped a load of more air pollution into the atmosphere by letting a load of fireworks off....Boy I'm a cynic...😁

      You're at least more of an optimist than I am.

      Ha, I was just thinking that yesterday. It's actually astonishing how bad it is. When the bad guy carries the woman into space at the end and she is somehow still alive...

      Remember it well only being 7 mile away, curtains sucked out of open window then blown in and up to hit the ceiling! Made for a breath stopping moment in the darkness, sure glad injuries were minimal and that it wasn't what I thought it was in those first 60 seconds!

      I remember it well as running service stations on the m1 at the time. Complete chaos of closed motorway was followed by the disruption to fuel supplies(although the government assured us there would be no problems!!!). Luckily for me Motorway services are classed as the priority customer after emergency services and armed forces so we were able to keep supplies available - albeit with long queues and some rationing!! 

      I also remember driving down to the site and wondering exactly how nobody had lost their lives in the destroyed factories and industrial units surrounding the site.

       

  19. What a washout, today has been.

    1. Mapantz

      Very much the same here. Wettest November I have recorded on this station, and 2" of rain in the past 5 days.

      Could've said that about several days lately. ☔

  20. So what happens to storm name Deirdre? Met office have a list of named storms and the date when they are used? Diana isn't in that list.

      Named by Portuguese met service using their list, I think what happens now is the next named storm will have to start with E, from somebody's list. 

      Not 100% sure about that, maybe they use up the unused name Deirdre anyway. In England it will be deer-dree and in Ireland deer-druh (I learned much about this from a Deirdre herself).

      It's almost like we need some sort of European co-operation amongst neighbours to come up with a list for the continent....:whistling:

      It is sad to hear of the death Stan Lee.  I thought that he would still be with us for many years to come. My favourite were the X-Men, particularly Storm.

      I remember watching the Spiderman cartoons in the 70's which I greatly enjoyed along with the live Hulk TV series.

      I don't think so, it was a purely morning event and short lived.
