  1. Well after all that, just had a massive 8.3mm from the cold front ...... totally unexpected, but very welcome indeed!
  2. Sadly I was wrong (here anyway) - just 1mm today from patchy drizzle. At least the washing is drying nicely in the breeze My month's total is now up to 9mm, most of which fell in yesterday's thunderstorm. And it looks like that's it for a couple more weeks at least .... Means I am still in partial drought (ave of no more than 0.25mm/day) from the start of June.
  3. "Apps" should never be relied upon in showery conditions - no model can ever predict exactly where a shower will fall. They should only be interpreted as a likelihood of showers "in the vicinity" which may or may not fall on your location Should see some decent frontal rain tomorrow though
  4. Had a good thunderstorm in Evesham about 3.30pm - first thunder I have heard since April! If models are right, tomorrow may match my wettest day of the year so far!
  5. Managed a whole 1mm of rain in Evesham - enough to break the 25 day absolute drought but not making much inroads on the summer deficit! Though a slight chance we may get another wee bit from the stuff currently over west Glos of it maintains its trajectory and doesn't dissipate first ....
  6. Today is Day 20 of absolute drought in Evesham - the longest such spell since I started using my current WS in May 2011.

    I do think polar bears are just a distraction: extremists on one side say they are all dying out due to global warming, those on the other side say it's all lies and they are all fine; the reality is more likely that some populations are suffering as a result of climate change in the Arctic and others are not. And the long term prognosis is unknown, other than that migration to different feeding grounds becomes problematic cos pesky humans are in the way. Edit: however I don't have any report or paper to support that contention. And unlike some people, I may be entirely wrong.

    Unfortunately - as I am sure you know - agenda-driven blogs are much like the Daily Mail: It's not what they tell you that's important, it's what they don't tell you ....
  9. Just had a small thunderstorm pass by Evesham, heading east Possibly some C-G lightning as there was a power dip just before the first thunder.
  10. First flash of lightning and distant thunder heard in Evesham. It's coming!
  11. I'm surprised it hasn't been removed - at least from the south. And replaced with one for flooding!
  12. After the roads and pavements cleared through the day, we now have a good covering again with snow still falling in Evesham Hadnt expected this!
  13. About 3 inches level snow in Evesham this morning with some drifting, and still snowing I was only expecting a dusting!
  14. light snow in Evesham, not settling (and now stopped)
  15. And you can order your milk and bread online too - so really no-one needs to go to work ......
