    New Weather Station

    Thanks for the heads up, Colin. I've had all sorts of little niggles with Wunderground recently. I've only just got it working again, although the last problem was due to me fiddling with my software (PCWetterstation) and accidentally clicking on a tick box which disabled my barometer I think I would prefer to manage my own data and share it with who I choose. I could set up my NAS box as a web server and host my own data. A lot to think about. Oregon Scientific WMR89 is looking good at the moment. Bob

    New Weather Station

    Morning all, I'm looking at replacing my aging Nexus weather station, does anyone have any recommendations? My budget is £150. The only criteria are: it must be wireless and USB link to my weather PC for uploading to Wunderground/web site. Mods, I hope this is the right area, if you think it would be better elsewhere, please move. Bob

    Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    Thanks - I'll give it 'kick' later on. I only put an adjustment on the software a couple of weeks ago when we had a stable high over us - I probably forgot to press save, wouldn't be the first time!

    Morning all, Not too bad in SE Oxon, WX Light rain Temp 15.7C Humidity 98% Rain 4mm since midnight Wind 5mph gusting 7mph (probably more like 10mph gusting 15mph due to sheltered spot) Pressure 994.8 hPa and falling Always amazes me after a prolonged period of no rain, how quickly the garden greens up. Will be cutting the lawn again in no time
  7. Maxed out at 31.6 IMBY yesterday - I think my screen would benefit from a fresh coat of paint, it is looking decidedly grey
  8. Just been out... and it's stopped snowing here - for now
  9. Morning all, Temp 1.6C Pressure 998.8mb Hum 91% Wind 15mph No measurable rain overnight 8/8 Cloud light snow starting to settle in places.
  10. I've got the full moon dates for the last century, I'll pull the CET figures and post back when I have the results.
  11. Hi, I hope this is posted in the right place Over the last few years I have noticed that the weather seems to change with the phases of the moon. The biggest changes are around the new moon and full moon. For example: 31 Jan 2018 - Full moon, the next two weeks were chilly but nothing special. There was the SSW on the 11th. 15 Feb 2018 - New moon, the next two weeks saw temperatures drop as the Beast from the East arrived. 02 Mar 2018 - Full moon, as quickly as the beast arrived it left and the following two weeks have been warmer and damp. 17 Mar 2018 - New moon, temperatures are looking set to drop and more snow for some/all as the BFTE II arrives. I have also noticed this during summer when the general trend has changed with the new/full moon. It is not exactly on the full/new date, it can vary a day or two either way. Has anyone else noticed this and can anyone explain it? I have tried Googling it and all I can find is that the weather is affected by the moon but not much else. Any answers/ideas welcome - surely it's not just me/my imagination
  12. There is a new moon on the 18th, I wouldn't be surprised to see a cold spell starting a couple of days either side of then.
  13. Heavy snow in South Oxfordshire. 5cm settled and more to come. The cat is refusing to go out and is growling at the snow
  14. I think it is 200hPa velocity potential anomalies. WTF that is, I don't know. If someone out there can please explain...
