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

    Appears to be some dumpings have landed over Siberia, with what looks like sea ice meeting land across the Laptev Sea. Iceland looks to have a bit more of a covering also in the last few days and if you squint I'm sure even Norway is showing a couple more pixels.
  5. The changing daylight hours thread

    Now we have that out of the way Clocks go BACK four weeks today! Already noticed a vast difference to light levels in the mornings, which I'm grateful for, and in the evenings especially on grey days.
  6. Err you mean Storm Aileen, the one that caused power loss to thousands of homes, brought down trees because they were in full leaf? http://news.sky.com/story/uk-surveys-damage-after-storm-aileen-cuts-power-to-50000-11033703 https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/sep/13/storm-aileen-batters-britain-with-high-winds-and-power-cuts To be fair up where you are escaped being struck but the stronger winds etc which even seemed to bamboozle the Met. Off predictions/warnings DID strike down here during the night when thankfully most were snoozing in bed and out of harms way It wasn't the strongest of storms and had it swept through in late Autumn once trees had dropped then it may not have been named. As it was, it was very early and I do think it warranted the name due to the damage caused and thus was a fair call by Met.Off in that regard.
  7. Earthquake Activity Thread

    This is a handy link for viewing and also displaying how nothing unusual is happening http://earthquakes.volcanodiscovery.com At the very top you can 'Hide' either Volcanoes or Quakes which makes the world map a little easier on the eye

  10. Hurricane Maria

    Tweet won't embed for some unknown reason but rapid strengthening expected to occur and develop into a Cat 4 as she tracks over Puerto Rico which is not good news for those islands.

  12. SE & East Anglia Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/2017 onwards

    Yep, sorry put current gusts link in there and now can't edit, the Top 20 gusts is this one http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=daily;type=maxg

    So where was our wind warning from Meto then? The yellow warning on my app did a big loop avoiding most of our region and according to http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=current;type=maxg Heathrow has recorded a gust of 63mph, so far only beaten by Mumbles Head recording 74mph @ 01.00 ! Has been great to hear the roars and howls this evening/morning though, just hope the trees have stood their ground ok
  14. 63mph gust recorded at Heathrow at 4am http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=current;type=maxg and no wind warning on my Meto app It has been quite lively out there for the last few hours so hope the trees have stood firm, too dark to see right now.
  15. Other phone picks up websites i've been looking at

    Are you both using your home Wi-Fi? I use PC and phone on the same Wi-Fi and it means that both devices are running through with the same identity, as in ISP address and thus see similar behaviour to that which you are seeing. Ad-Block is a great extension to add to browser, some browsers already have it integrated. However, as far as I know the ad-block will only stop you from 'seeing' targeted ads but will not 'turn off' the tracking cookies in the background. I also never go near FB so not quite sure if it will respond as well as normal websites do. Hope this info helps somewhat until a more informed poster can enlighten us both further.
