  2. I've not done this before but here goes.. cet 4.8 and ewp 74mm Sorry I've posted in the wrong thread. Feel free to remove if you can.
  3. Wasn't expecting this.. wind has picked up in basingstoke area from nothing half an hour ago to what I estimate to be 40-50mph gusts? A good 25 miles or so inland too..
  4. Summer 2017 Discussion

    Just a thought.. 1995 and 2006 have the same calendar as this year, easter Sundays for all 3 years fell on 16 April, all 3 Mays have/had blips in dry periods, 3 outstanding summers perhaps? We can only hope..
  5. Thunder and lightning here too within last 20m.. an added bonus. If this was summer this would be a lively plume event..?
  6. For me it would be those that were at either end of the stormy/mild - cold/snowy scale. Jan 13, Jan 10, Dec 10, Dec 09 had a great snow event in this area, and going back a bit Feb 91, Jan 87 I can just about remember and Feb 96 was decent with snow bookending that month here. On the other end of the scale Dec 13, Feb 14, Jan 07 for their frequent gales, Jan 98( though just the beginning) and Jan 90 for that awesome burns day storm. For that same token autumn months can be listed but that would be off topic I guess.. So any extreme month really
  7. Summer 2016

    Agreed those were awesome storms here in 2014 (the one 13/14 June being in my top 5 rated storms) a couple of offerings in June this year though in this area which were half decent.. one on 16th that made the roof of Asda leak and close the store and it felt dodgy to be under trees. The other overnight 22/23 was ok but probably more notabe for the rainfall (38mm in Odiham and 45 in Farnborough not too far away)
  8. Just 1 overhead clap of thunder about an hour ago here in amazingstoke with some very heavy rain and gusty winds. All cleared through now.
  9. Nope, no cloudless days I recall this year (or last year for that matter - summer 2013 I think was the last one) june 30th got close until a nice castellanusfest in the late eve (which is always welcome of course :-))
  10. From about 1130 last night for at least an hour there was a very good light show to the west of Basingstoke. Considering the sferics were shown as being at least 20m away this must have been an awesome storm for W Hampshire/East wilts area. A bright moon and clear skies to the east also added to the effect, illuminating so great cloudscapes.
  11. Max at Gravesend 35.8c on friday as the plume pulls away east. Min London 23.1c thu/fri
  12. Summer 2015

    An interesting point. Unless it reaches 30c by tuesday, we will have had 4 consecutive Junes where it hasn't been reached anywherr in the UK..

  14. Summer 2015

    Forgive me if this is the wrong place to post but an interesting stat is that yesterday - June 13 is the only day of the meteorological summer not to reach 30c. Of course that didn't change yesterday but an interesting point to share..
