  1. Hello I am unable to find the correct latitude and longitude as my Climemet weather station is not showing the correct sunrise and sunset times.  I have tried several online find your co-ordinates (latitude and longitude) websites and I get different results from each website.  Please can anyone help me.  I live in South Ockendon in Thurrock.

    1. jtay


      Google Maps tells you.  Pop in your postcode, then double click on your house, or nearby. The Lat/Long appears in a pop up, along with a streetview image.


      Find local businesses, view maps and get driving directions in Google Maps.

      Thank you for your help. I have tried it but it did not give the latitude or longtitude.  I got this when I put my postcode: G74J+2F

      Long: 0.283

      No worries. 👍


  3. It is going to be wet and windy
    for everyone in Europe and UK.
    Especially those live by the sea
    who won't be using their sleigh.
    It will be rain, rain, rain
    and storms that will become the norm.
    Rain will begin their reign
    where the weather will become lukewarm.
    It will be will be wild and mild
    bringing in a frightful rainfest.
    Our snow and frost will then become exiled
    because of the arrival of the pest from the West.

      They also make some nice battered cod fillets

  5. 'Tis the season of the Fall of the leaves
    where they fall down into the eaves.
    There will be plenty of storms
    which will be stronger than the norm.
    Hopefully there will be mist and fog
    for the ramblers and those going on a jog.
    Along with crispy lawns covered in frost
    with spiders webs that are embossed.

      just to add to that...

      ...and i hope that there will be plenty of snow blowing around in the wind

      so that the winter 2020/21 won't be binned:oldgrin:

      it was frosty already

  6. Strepsiades: Who makes the thunder that makes me shake in terror?

    Socrates: It is just the Clouds rocking in the sky.

    Strepsiades: Is nothing sacred! How do they do that?

    Socrates: Simple. When they become completely saturated with moisture, they are forced by Necessity to begin to oscillate to and fro. Every now and again they ram each other and of course, being packed with precipitation, CRASH! A cloudburst!

    Strepsiades: But surely someone must force them to move in the first place. That must be Zeus.

    Socrates: Not at all, it is the whirling of the Celestial.

      Zeus like to relax with a cup of cocoa and a good book these days

    2. lassie23


      he just wants it to snow but it won't ?

    3. Dami


      no i think he's great. I normally look at his forecasts when it's thundery/snowy.

  8. I am still waiting for rain to appear in Thurrock.  It has been a month since the last time, it has rained.

    1. karyo


      Did you get some rain?

    2. Katrine Basso

      Katrine Basso

      Yes, I have had some yesterday and light rain today.

  9. Virtual tour of my 'give nature a home' wildlife garden

  10. My back garden filled with wildflowers, shrubs, saplings and mature trees.

  11. For the past half hour my upstairs neighbour has been nosily shutting and slamming her window shut. Why me? Why? It's getting unbearable. Help!?:olddoh:??‍♀️????????


    1. karyo


      My upstairs neighbour is hyperactive, sometimes she even runs in her apartment!

  14. I know a little Tern who I named Ern
    who is friends with a Roseate Gull called Rose.
    Ern would always would do a good turn
    whenever the Wild West winds blows.
    Even helped a long lost sea-bird Kittiwake
    off the Scottish coast of Buteshire.
    It was caused by a small earthquake in the lake
    sparked off by the country squire's ire.
    So Ern did a weather dance just on the chance
    that it would calm down the winds a little bit.
    He did it in the reverend's church manse
    along with a comedy skit about the vicar's kilt.

  15. What instrument should I get to accurately monitor the wind speed and direction, please.

  16. Sounds like the only weather  the British Isles and Ireland will be getting is very wet, windy, mild and wild weather.:oldsad:

      This winter sucks

  17. Happy New Year Wish

    My Happy New Year wish for you all
    Is for your best year yet,
    A year where life is peaceful,
    And what you want, you get.

    A year in which you cherish
    The past year’s memories,
    And live your life each new day,
    Full of bright expectancies.

    I wish for you  all a holiday
    With happiness galore;
    And when it’s done, I wish you all
    Happy New Year, and many more.

    By Joanna Fuchs




  18. May the  good times and treasures of the present

    become the golden memories of tomorrow.

    Wishing you lot’s of love, joy and happiness.

    May you have the best holidays this year and

    May all your dreams come true.

    Wishing you lot’s of love, joy and happiness.

    I wish that everyone on the weather forum a very happy and a Merry Christmas.

  19. There will be no seasonable weather
    for those in the UK and Ireland.
    Just raining falling down from the aether
    making everything looking grey and bland.

    It does not like it's going to be very festive
    with wet and windy weather into the weekend.
    There is nothing that will be suggestive
    that the mild fest will be coming to an end.

    There will heavy rain for Southern Britain
    and gusty winds that will bring devastation.
    There will  be accidents on the roads and tracks
    as fallen debris will be causing chaos throughout the nation.

    This will be caused an onslaught of low pressure
    weather fronts that will be coming from the Atlantic ocean.
    It will start from Southern Britain and work up towards Cheshire
    this will cause a great deal of anxiety and commotion.

    The oncoming storm will bring heavy prolonged rainfall
    and that there will be strong winds in places.
    It does not seem like winter but more like what you expect in the Fall
    and it will even affect the football and the horse races.

    1. lassie23


      we did say that it was going to be a green christmas

  20. I feel like I am living in the land of the eternal autumn.

    1. cheeky_monkey


      tis better than living in the land of eternal winter :snowman-emoji:

      You can always go into the MOD thread  - its always just about to snow there every day of the week. Roll on Spring....

      It seems like it has been raining every day this week as my garden gets soggier.  All the planters in my back garden are drowned with rainwater and it won't be long before the soil turns into a gruesome mire.??️?️☁️☁️???️?️

  21. The JMA has forecasted that there will be very very unsettled weather for Ireland and the UK from the 7th of December. The beastly westerlies will be bringing higher than average precipitation with copious amounts of rain from the deep low pressure and a strong Atlantic jet-stream.?:oldsad:?️?️?️?️??

      It is the same over here, the only fence that has ever blown over is my neighbour's high fence which is always in a bad state of repair.  I have got the weather trending winter 2019/2020 forecast this morning: https://weathertrending.com/2019/11/30/winter-2019-20-mixed-trending-drier-colder/ and it states that computer model forecasts have been poor as they forecasted mild weather for November, so it makes their forecasts very unreliable. It could be more likely to be a taster winter like the one in 2008 to 2009.

    3. lassie23


      computer models can't agree on the forecast 10 days out let alone months a head

    4. Katrine Basso

      I find that the 48 weather forecasts the most accurate.  It is difficult because I live in Thurrock and the nearest met office is located in Shoeburyness which is 18 miles away from where I live and is on the coast.

  22. Here is a poem based on what the computer models think Ireland and the British Islands autumn, winter and spring weather will be.

    Autumn comes with beautiful misty mornings
    with fine drizzle soaking through the muddy ground.
    There will be many Met Office severe weather warnings
    with strong gales and the swaying of trees that are making no sound.
    The Queen Elizabeth II Thurrock bridge's two lanes will be closed
    causing 20 mile traffic jams as motorists try to stay composed.
    The autumn weather will continue through the winter and spring
    where Ireland and the British Isles will experience severe flooding.
    People will become downhearted as they lose their zing
    at Bonfire night there will be no sound of fireworks exploding.
    This is because of the nights and days of continuous heavy rain
    where other parts of the world will be getting all the frost and snow.
    Ireland and the British Isles begin a get winter weather campaign
    because of the flooded meadows, which has filled everyone with woe.

  23. I have got a few tadpoles, in my newly made back garden pond.  It is a mystery of how the tadpoles got there as there are not any ponds or rivers close by.

      I wonder if the two are linked.

    3. lassie23


      maybe bits are falling off it

    4. Woollymummy


      It is so late in the year for tadpoles, how interesting that they are there!


  24. Listening to the YouTube recording of the Radio 4 Shipping Forecast which had been read on both radio and TV as part of the Arena Radio Night in 1993.


  25. According to the ECMWF, Meteo France we will be having a very wet, wild, mild and stormy winter, with 100% increase in precipitation. It sounds like we'll be having days and nights of rain and gales starting from December and ending in March. They said that there will no Northern Blocking and the winter will be very mild.

      High pressure in Central and South Europe has been a common theme in recent winters sadly.
