  1. Do you think it will be predominantly overcast this week? Meto are keen on going with bits of sun but lots of cloud. Anyhow, at least the rain's holding off for my plans up to midweek.
  2. View to my south. Poxy moderate rain shower incoming!
  3. 27 - 7 times 30 - once 32 - 0
  4. Thanks, yeah Portland is known to be significantly cooler than surrounding areas because of it's location sticking out into the channel. Still don't understand why temperature forecasts for Weymouth are so varied and close and if not the same as Portland, as that's dead wrong!
  5. Can someone explain why there's usually a 5 - 10 degree variation in temps between different forecasters for my area? I believe we reached 26° here today. Met office not far out. I'm blaming the fact the weather station is at Portland bill? bbc wants to believe that the temperature there is the same as here. So irritating, i've had people message me saying the weather here is crap - no.. it's actually pretty hot!
  6. Eclipse has been visible here since it began to pass out of the shadow, probably couldn't see it earlier because the haze blocked it out. Budget smartphone camera provides the evidence!
  7. After it rained last night there appears to spots of sand/dust all over the cars! Instead of cleaning anything off it made it dirtier!
  8. Looked like it would rain for a few hours but had about 40 seconds of rain and the chances of anything more extreme than that are diminishing.
  9. Quite right! Even the most recent forecast has no mention of it down in the SE. I'm wondering this too. Meanwhile, showers are appearing in the Winchester area.
  10. What is this "dome" y'all refer to? Apologies, I haven't been here very long, want to know what to blame the lack of storms on.
  11. Today.. not a heatwave at all. Worst weather i've seen for a long time. Lots of rain and mist. Thick mist and barely above 14°C this evening.
  12. I've been wondering why some sites like the BBC has been forecasting temperatures for my area at least 3+ degrees below what they have been. The most extreme case was last Thursday they only preducted a high of 21° yet it ended up being 26°, even at the beach. Does this have to do with the fact that their station is situated on Portland? I remember when Emma hit, there was a significant difference in temperature between Portland and Weymouth yet that apparently wasn't the case. It just bugs me, seeing places like Bournemouth and Lyme Regis in the high twenties but poor Weymouth having forecast temps similar to the Hebrides.
  13. Very light rain shower this morning. Thank god most of that stuff to the west has missed me. Wanted a good thunderstorm but most certainly don't want what's over Devon and Cornwall right now.
  14. Well.. the fog's lifted in the past half hour (Weymouth)
