  1. She's back after briefly being killed off! Reformed as a tropical storm and NHC reckon hurricane in next couple of days. May well impact UK weather too but little early to say as yet. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/graphics_at3.shtml?start#contents
  2. Yep, same here near Modbury Lyn. Miserable day so far, rain alternating between moderate and heavy. Wind has also picked up a bit in the last hour. Looks like a conveyor belt of rain for a good few hours yet. Lovely!
  3. Yes, a pretty wild night down in the South Hams too. Some torrential bursts of rain and really strong winds for few minutes, think roughly between 2 and 3am. Don't quote me though, wasn't really awake. I only noticed one flash of lightning, Blitzortung historical maps seem to back up the fact there wasn't that much going on, beyond the heavy rain and gusty winds. Not much fun for the many campers round here I don't suppose!
  4. Beautiful morning in the South Hams. Interesting to see the Metcheck live temps showing 23/24c round here. Appreciate not 100% accurate but certainly rings true, it feels surprisingly warm and humid out this morning.
  5. Very intrigued to see how it pans out tomorrow. We are camping in Stratford upon Avon, our glamping hut is SO toasty this evening. Tomorrow evening sounds like it'll be even more unbearable, 33deg is the daytime high forecast! Mostly I'm interested to see how the potential storms pan out. It's been a very long time since we were underneath anything special in the Kingsbridge area of the South Hams. Only saving grace not being home is that it looks like storm action will be pretty widespread, so expecting a tough night with the kids if that's the case
  6. Checked into the MOD thread...! Next week looking very interesting. We are away from Devon glamping in a shed (lol) in Stratford upon Avon. The NW 10 day forecast for Stratford has a "feels like" temperature of 44deg for Wednesday, haha! Imagine...
  7. Yes Germany lighting up like a Christmas tree again! https://leixner.de/ This one I linked to a few weeks back, it's Brücken in Rhineland-Palatinate. Looks like it may be in the firing line in the next half hour or so.
  8. Afternoon all! Nice and warm again today. However interesting little development to the north of Modbury/Kingsbridge. Cloud visibly building but not moving fast in any particular direction. Sat24 clearly shows it building up over the past hour or so. Maybe a rogue hefty shower on the way?
  9. 25 degrees here. That line of cloud started encroaching in the distance but hasn't moved for a while. So nice and sunny here in the mighty South Hams!
  10. Very muggy start to the day here in the South Hams. Showers already building up, can't say I'm surprised as skies have been looking pretty unstable all morning. This is the current view looking west.
  11. Another nice day in the South Hams. Breezy yet again, and not as warm as yesterday. Don't have an accurate temperature but looking at current station readings it seems we are around the 20 degree mark right now. I'd say 50/50 that we may get the warmest temps of the week tomorrow, all depends how quick the cooler air arrives here. Somewhere in our region should hit 30 either today or tomorrow, surely?!
  12. 18 degrees here near Modbury in the South Hams. As per the rest of the region, very keen breeze which is keeping it feeling fresh. Will be interesting to see if there are one or two sheltered spots in the region that manage to escape the effects of that breeze on the temperature.
  13. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/uk-warnings#?date=2019-06-27&id=8ae98b28-5feb-4e8b-ad94-86be8cccb234&details Bit breezy then...
  14. Made it to a shade over 24 degrees this afternoon near Modbury. Nice spells of sunshine from about 2pm onwards, slightly hazier now but pretty good going to be fair!
  15. Was quite a nice start this morning between Kingsbridge and Modbury, plenty of sunshine but now it's clouded over. Certainly felt warm at about 8.40 when the sun was out. By the way, is this a legitimate station down in Plymouth? It was recording 22.9 deg just before 10am, which to be honest I can well imagine as the sun has been out there pretty much all morning: https://www.metcheck.com/WEATHER/live_weather_station_24hrs.asp?ID=5556&Station=Plymouth&VarIn= If so, goes to show that if we do get a good spell of unbroken sunshine, expect those temps to climb nicely!
