    I will be quite encouraging to see bigger increases of sea-cover in the Baltic.
  3. I am also looking for the dry cold weather as my joint pain lessens and my energy levels increase. According to my mobile phone tomorrow is a minimum of 2C and a maximum of 6C, but Thursday and Friday will have minimum and maximum temperatures of 0C and 2C/3C.
  4. Wivensworld I hope your arthritis pain subsided and were able to go to your Rheumatoid Arthritis appointment. The weather has finally become drier but it is still overcast. I am looking forwarded to drier weather as I have washing on the line. I have watched the latest video from Gavin Partridge on YouTube and he said that the 'Beast from the East' is still on. Temperatures will get colder from either Sunday or Monday.

    Thank you Yarmy for your helpful answer and for the website link.
  6. It is the second day of moderate to heavy rainfall for Thurrock. The dampness in the air is affecting me badly as I am experiencing a lot of pain in my joints, more than usual.

  8. Snow And Ice In The Northern Hemisphere 2017/18

    In the past days there have been decreases of ice and snow. The very slow increases of snow and ice have started again. There will be more to come by the end of the week.

  10. Yes, it seems a very long time since there has been widespread heavy snow for the U.K. and Ireland. It is very hard for me to imagine what very cold and very snowy weather will be like. When it will come, the very cold weather will only be forecast 2 to 3 days before it is due to hit the U.K. and Ireland. Any snow coming our way will only appear in the 12 to 24 hour forecasts and they will not be able to know how much will fall. I feel we will have a repeat of the chaos in London and other areas that occurred in February 2009. I have already bought snow boots which I bought two years ago and I still have not had a chance to wear them in snowy weather.
  11. I was born in 1963 at the end of July in Edinburgh. My mother was worried that the snow won't be gone in time of my birth.
  12. A fine sunny day with thin layer of scattered clouds. The cloud base is at 1755 feet. The temperature is 11.8 °C with a last hour variation of +3.6 °C . The wet thermometer is 9.6 °C and the humidity is at 75%. The wind speed is 1.1 miles per hour and the wind direction is from the SSW. The barometer pressure is at 1022.0 mb and the altimeter pressure is at 1025.3 mb. The pressure is falling slowly at -0.3 mb/hr.
  13. It is the third morning of very bright sunshine, with spring like temperatures. The sunshine has been lasting until the late afternoon for the past three days.

    The SpaceWeather.com has a sunspot count of 12 today but Solarham.net has a blank sun today. On the Space Weather.com website it is said that the sunspot on the 15th February was disappearing but they are still recording sunspot numbers for the 16th, 17th and the 18th. I have no way of finding the sunspot count for the 16th and the 17th February on Solarham.net.
  15. I have had this very heavy cold for three weeks now.  It has been over eight years since the last time I was down with influenza.

      TEITS I hope you are feeling a lot better now and have fully recovered.  It must have been awful for you having Pneumonia & Sepsis and ending up in Intensive Care. Yes,  I will be seeing my GP next week.
