  1. Sorry I'm late, it's only the first contest I've been late for. 2.4*c and 70.4mm please.
  2. Hi there. I have a personal weather station in a suburban back garden. The homemade Stevenson Screen is white, made of wood and has a roof gently sloping towards the back so rain can run off better. With possible cold waves this Winter, I'd like to know what to do if snow falls and/or ice forms on the roof of the screen. Here's the questions. If snow falls on the screen roof and slats/single louvers on the sides of the screen, will that negatively affect max/min outdoor air temperature accuracy by making the temperature readings colder than what the accurate max/min outdoor temperature actually is? If ice/frost forms on the screen roof and slats/single louvers on the sides of the screen, will that negatively affect max/min outdoor temperature accuracy by making the temperature readings colder than what the accurate max/min outdoor temperature actually is? With ice, frost, or snow on the ground, do I brush it off the roof and slats/single louvers of the Stevenson Screen, to prevent colder temperature readings than what the accurate max/min outdoor temperature actually is? With deep snow on the ground, do I brush the snow on the ground away to maintain adequate distance between ground and thermometer, to prevent inaccurate colder temperatures than what the accurate max/min outdoor temperature actually is? Two last questions I've thought of. If it snows, how do I get rainfall totals from melted fallen snow in the automatic rain gauge I have attached in a backward direction to the painted white wooden pole the Stevenson Screen stands on? How would I go about melting fallen snow in the automatic rain gauge? I hope I explained things well. Merry Christmas and thank you.
  3. Some people just need to be nice and also tolerant of other people's opinions. The world would be a better place if some people focused on what they have in common with each other.
  4. I apologise for accusing you of saying that I myself was telling people to "suck it up", I really don't like upsetting people, and I thought that I'd upset you. Regarding people who enjoy people's disappointment and telling them to "suck it up", there are people who just like to wind others up, so it's best to just ignore it, and if they don't get a reaction they'll enjoy, they'll probably stop. I suppose everyone on Netweather realises that the UK's climate is not like Spain. I think I used the Spain analogy to make a point, but my point has come across wrong, so I won't use that analogy again because I now think is as untrue. I would be good for a lot of people if the UK's climate was like Spain, so they wouldn't need to spend hundreds of pounds on holidays. I would agree this weather has been very poor for those who like warmth, sunshine, and dry weather. I hope the weather improves for warmth, sunshine, and dry weather lovers later in the Summer. I suppose this weather we've been having is a bit like December 2015, which is my least favourite weather month of all time. My favourite spell of weather of all time is late November and December 2010.
  5. In those comments, I was judging Summers on hot spells and what the CET is, but I suppose we all recall and feel the weather differently. I suppose cloudy weather, even whilst it's warm isn't that great for a lot of people in Summer, and sunshine levels are more important for some people in judging what they think makes a Summer great for them. I don't think there are many, or maybe any Summers in recorded history that have been warm, dry, and sunny throughout, maybe 1976 comes close.
  6. I also don't think most people complain about the weather because it isn't warm and sunny for weeks on end. I'm just having one of my more vocal days on these forums. I said to my Dad on Tuesday that this weather wouldn't look out of place in October, and warm weather lovers should seek warm, sunny and dry weather in Summer, if that's what makes them happy. I also fully agree that this dull and wet weather that we've been having is very poor for lovers of warm, sunny, and dry weather.
  7. When have I told warm weather lovers to “suck it up”? I’m not the type of person to revel in other peoples disappointment either. If people enjoy hot weather, I don’t have any problem with that, and I have a problem with people who revel in people’s disappointment. I also don’t like being accused of being like that with people because I meant my comments with goodwill. All I have said is that some people need to accept the UK isn’t supposed to be a warm and sunny country. I’ll expand on that comment by saying that compared to places like Spain, the UK isn’t warm and sunny. I also said that warm weather lovers shouldn’t complain as much, compared to coldies who get frustrated in winter. I’ll expand on that comment by saying that over the last seven Summers from 2013-19, there has been at least a couple of hot, dry and sunny spells for warm weather lovers to enjoy, but with some cooler and wetter spells mixed in that they wouldn’t have enjoyed so much. Unfortunately for them, a poor Summer for warmth, sunshine, and dry weather will eventually happen because of the law of averages. Maybe I moaned a bit about my fortunes regarding wintry weather, but I can, like others on these forums, moan about the weather. I’m sorry if I’ve offended some people with my comments, I mean all of my Netweather comments in good nature, and never in my life do I ever intend to be nasty to anyone. I would agree that this Summer has been poor for warmth, sunshine, and dry weather, but nobody can control the weather. Hopefully warm weather lovers will get more of the weather they like later in Summer, and if it makes them happy, I’m happy.
  8. I think some, but not all people on these forums need a reality check. The UK isn’t supposed to be a warm and sunny country. In my opinion, whilst it’s reasonable for people to want some dry, sunny and warm weather during Summer, it’s unreasonable to just expect warm, sunny and dry weather to last for the majority of Summer. Warm/hot weather lovers have been spoiled for the last 7 years, so I feel they shouldn’t be complaining as much as coldies who spend umpteen mild winters looking at cold and snowy day 10 model charts that never really materialise. If it wasn’t for the significant snow event in December 2017, I’d have gone over 7 years without a single notable snow event. Winter 2017-18 was a milder than average winter in the CET area, but had cold snaps to keep coldies happy. March 2018 doesn’t count because that was in meteorological spring, and it wasn’t until early in that March that I got heavy snow from storm Emma. However, with climate change, the Winter frustrations of coldies are only going to gradually worsen.
