  1. It's been up to around 33C this afternoon but now there's a belt of light rain crossing us here in Taunton. But for once the radar isn't telling the truth - the rain simply isn't reaching ground level - it's still as dry as a bone!
  2. Max of 28.3C yesterday here in my sheltered garden in Taunton. Max of 22.7C today at 11.30 this morning but less than 3 hours later and it’s already down to 16.0C and falling steadily. That's it - summer's over!
  3. Still only moderately windy - gusts to 20.6 mph recently, but it seems to be easing. 1.8mm of rain so far, in the half hour after midnight. Temperature steady at 16.6C. Pressure STILL falling - down to 978.3 mb now. Been falling ever since 5.30 pm yesterday..... The worst must be over by now - time for bed.
  4. The rain cleared around midnight - 14mm for the day, most of it after about 9 pm. Wind picked up not long ago and it's getting a bit noisy out there now but not as windy as yesterday afternoon yet. Things rattling and bouncing around in other people's gardens..... Max gust tonight - 28.2 mph - sounds like more.... Pressure falling rapidly - down to 980.7 mb. Temperature risen to 16.6C
  5. I lived in Townsville in North Queensland from 1967 to 1976. Our summers were just six months of day-after-day sunshine and temperatures around 30C or more. I used to long to be able to draw in a lung-chilling breath of fresh cold air. Thats why 1976 in the UK felt so excessive - I think we recorded (in Chichester, W. Sussex) ten consecutive days of temperatures over 80F (27C) and many more were close to that figure. Oh - and winters in Townsville (daily temperatures around 23C) were almost as bad - rain most days around 4 pm - like clockwork. Variety is the spice of life - don't tell m
  6. Hot is one thing - heat is another!!! That was just one particularly HOT day in 1989. The summer of 1976 just went on and on - non-stop HEAT. That's what made it so memorable.
  7. A simple question - I hope! Where do we post monthly weather summaries? Found it!! Wasn't open when I asked. My monthly summary duly posted.
  8. Please read my signature. Then THINK!!! How many others feel the same way - you're getting worse than BBC - repeat after repeat. Bye bye for now
  9. Silly boy aren't I? No comments please!! I never get round to thinking of all your other useful skills and facilities! There's always quite enough to keep me busy on the forum alone. Many thanks http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif
  10. Please help with 12Z charts. I can get onto the www.wetterzentrale.com/pics/ site easily enough and I can find the 12Z forecast charts. However they show a 9 chart page which, when I click on it, enlarges – but still 9 charts. How can I get just one 12Z chart? Is there a seperate page for each day? Bear in mind that I can't read/speak German! For example, should I wish to attach one to a post, where can I find a single image to download? I know I'm stupid but.........
  11. Makes sense, Snowman and Paul. Ta. Just wanted to make sure that I don't get moaned at!!
  12. Ta Paul Gotcha! I asked because I thought that the timing of the posting (i.e. Midnight) indicates that you should post info either for the day before (or should that have been posted ON the day before) or info at the time of the entry. It's obviously for AT THE TIME info. Thanks. So when should you post records for the whole day, i.e. a summary? Any time, I guess?
  13. Please can someone explain about Current Conditions and Reports: Weather Reports. The first post at about midnight usually says “Please post your weather reports here.” Does that mean reports of weather conditions – at the time of the report? - or for the day before up to midnight?
