  1. A warm start after a warm breezy night. Sunny spells with drizzle Temp 17.1C, low 16.9C, Barometer 1012mb steady, Wind F2 SSW, Rainfall trace

    Well what has changed is the input of fresh magma. For along period it matched the output which is why the eurption has lasted so long. The overall time period 35 years generally also indicates that the end is going to be sooner rather than later. The Eruption is the longest observed and the lower east rift Eruption the longest ever. Meanwhile Mauna Loa has resumed it's recent restlessness as a new injection of magma is happening. The volcano has been very quiet since it's last eruption in 1984 in contrast to its neighbor Kilauea. This is one it's longest pauses in it's History.
  3. Close on 307 for 6 which could have been much worse. Dreadful miss by Jennings as well. So India will be a bit disappointed England slightly relieved.
  4. Rashid says hit me and Kohli tries and gets himself out caught by Stokes. For the Stoke haters he also wastes a review but really weak captaining by Root as Stokes was the only person who thought the Indian has hit the ball. India in danger of doing an England and possibly throwing a winning position away.
  5. All change again on the GFS with some hot weather back on the menu for parts England Wednesday and Tuesday then lala land has it turning cold for the end of the week and first part of bank holiday.
  6. It turned very warm in the afternoon as the sun broke through. Max temp 24.3C now 23.5C, Barometer 1016mb falling, Wind F2 WSW, Rainfall Nil
  7. Despite the warm start temperatures only climbing slowly due to the cloud.Few Sunny spells this morning. Max temp so far 19.1C now 18.9C, Barometer 1017mb rising, Wind F2 WSW, Rainfall Nil
  8. Sunny Sheffield down to 18C +1.5C above normal. Rainfall Unchanged.
  9. A warm mostly cloudy start Temp 16.3C, low 15.2C. Barometer 1016mb rising, Wind F2 SSW, Rainfall trace

    Must be reading my thoughts HVO/USGS Volcanic Activity Notice Volcano: Kilauea (VNUM #332010) Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH Previous Volcano Alert Level: WARNING Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE Issued: Friday, August 17, 2018, 8:39 AM HST Source: Hawaiian Volcano Observatory Notice Number: Location: N 19 deg 25 min W 155 deg 17 min Elevation: 4091 ft (1247 m) Area: Hawaii Volcanic Activity Summary: Lowering Alert Level from WARNING to WATCH In light of the reduced eruptive activity at Kīlauea Volcano over the last several days, HVO is lowering the Alert Level for ground based hazards from WARNING to WATCH. This change indicates that the hazards posed by crater collapse events (at the Kīlauea summit) and lava flows (Lower East Rift Zone; LERZ) are diminished. However, the change does not mean with absolute certainty that the LERZ eruption or summit collapses are over. It remains possible that eruption and collapse activity could resume. Although no signs of imminent hazardous activity are present at this time, residents of the region near recently active fissures should stay informed, heed Civil Defense warnings, and be prepared, if necessary, to self-evacuate. The aviation color code remains at ORANGE. For definitions of Alert Levels and Aviation Color Codes, see: https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/vhp/about_alerts.html The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) will continue to closely monitor Kīlauea's seismicity, deformation, and gas emissions for any sign of reactivation, and maintain visual surveillance of the summit and LERZ. HVO will continue to issue daily updates and additional messages as needed.

    Too me it looks like the Eruption that's lasted from 1983 has finally ended. Still far to early to be certain next few months will tell. KILAUEA VOLCANO (VNUM #332010) 19°25'16" N 155°17'13" W, Summit Elevation 4091 ft (1247 m) Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE Kīlauea summit and lower East Rift Zone The lull in activity at Kīlauea Volcano continues. No summit collapse events have occurred since August 2, and, with the exception of a small, crusted-over pond of lava deep inside the fissure 8 cone and a few scattered ocean entries, lava stopped flowing in the lower East Rift Zone (LERZ) on August 6. Sulfur dioxide emission rates at both the summit and LERZ are drastically reduced; the combined rate is lower than at any time since late 2007. Earthquake and deformation data show no net accumulation, withdrawal, or significant movement of subsurface magma or pressurization as would be expected if the system was building toward a resumption of activity. It is too soon to tell if this change represents a temporary lull or the end of the LERZ eruption and/or summit collapse activity. In 1955, similar pauses of 5 and 16 days occurred during an 88-day-long LERZ eruption. During the Mauna Ulu eruption (1969-1974), a 3.5 month pause occurred in late 1971. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) will continue to closely monitor Kīlauea’s seismicity, deformation, and gas emissions for any sign of reactivation, and maintain visual surveillance of the summit and LERZ. HVO will continue to issue daily updates and additional messages as needed. The next status report will be issued tomorrow morning unless significant changes occur.
  12. Sunny Sheffield at 18.3C +1.8C above normal. Rainfall unchanged. Models jumping all over the place only a few days ago I was looking at 30C here next week. Now it's saying 17C to 19C. So anything can still happen.
  13. A cool humid day with a gentle south south westerly breeze. Cloudy a few spots of rain. Max temp 17.7C now 16C, Barometer 1016mb falling, Wind F3 SSW, Rainfall trace
  14. Dry cool start to the day Temp 10.7C, low 10.4C, Barometer 1015mb start, Wind F2 SSW, Rainfall nil
  15. A mostly cloudy afternoon which prevented temperatures rising much. Clouds now thinning so may still get a new high for day as temperatures are rising very rapidly in the sun. No sign of the gusty winds mentioned on the beeb TV forecast. Max temp so far 19.3C now 18.4C but gone up a degree in the last ten minutes or so. Barometer 1010mb rising, Wind F2 WSW, Rainfall 3.7mm
