  1. An article from an edition of Weather from 2012 and it mentions how bad 2010 was for thunder. The article is about the thundery June of 1982 http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/wea.1891/full
  2. 2010 was a very good year for snow and lying snow especially here but it was an absolute shocker for thunder.
  3. A Yorkie bar in 2002 weighed 70g, it is currently now just 46g.

      It's not just chocolate bars, a hell of a load of products have shrunk.

  4. Looking at some of the recent selections for England, what has happen to some of these players since their Test experiences? Simon Kerrigan, Scott Borthwick, Boyd Rankin, Sam Robson, Adam Lyth, James Vince. Obviously unlike Ballance, they haven't done enough to warrant a return or prospects of one but then again what has Ballance done?
  5. Does anyone think Ballance will be picked for England again?
  6. I wonder how much Terry Wogan was on? He was their major presenter for years, he never left the Beeb. I wonder how much Morecambe and Wise, Bruce Forsythe, Mike Yarwood, Michael Parkinson etc were paid, as they were big stars in the 70s for the BBC until ITV offered more money to join them.
  7. Well done the England ladies on winning the World Cup.
  8. Perth whirlwind
  9. It feels like this summer is just not quite there at least around here, it's like it is a seesaw that is just balanced and it is just tilting one way then the other from time to time
  10. Hi sunny76 I don't recall August 1987 having any long hot periods, they tended to be short and in the second half of the month. There was a Friday in August of that year when it just got to 11C or 12C in Manchester as a maximum! I remember it. One good thing about that summer was that we got thunderstorms but June 1987 was diabolical for this area, wettest month of the 1980s.
  11. It was very convective that day, this was from my location that day.
  12. Spotless Days Current Stretch: 3 days 2017 total: 47 days (24%) 2016 total: 32 days (9%) 2015 total: 0 days (0%) 2014 total: 1 day (<1%) 2013 total: 0 days (0%) 2012 total: 0 days (0%) 2011 total: 2 days (<1%) 2010 total: 51 days (14%) 2009 total: 260 days (71%)
  13. How much does Diane Oxberry get paid for gloating "I hope the thunderstorms in this forecast don't come off" or minimising "snow" prospects?
