      It seems as if everything is at is peak with the hurricanes and storms. Probably because it's been so benign for the last few years? Does all this hurricane activity influence our winter? 

    4. lassie23


      increases the chances of extreme drizzle

  2. Same - in east London. One flash, one massive crack of thunder then nothing.
  3. Hurricane Irma

    An interesting piece from the editor of the herald today on St Maarten. Giving some background on previous hurricanes and how he thinks they'll fair this time round https://thedailyherald.sx/editorial/69215-stay-safe
  4. Curious to know the temp/humidity last night. Felt like one of the warmest nights of the year. Certainly changed this morning though

      Between 94-97% humidity and between 9.5 to 10.5C. According to the nearest Metoffice station to you.

      Thanks! Humidity seems right but temp seems very low unless that was minima. At bedtime upstairs was recording 30oC in doors. 

  5. Wow so hot and humid here tonight. Hoping it cools down soon
  6. Medical issues

    I'm surprised too. He's def one of the old guard. I'll get him to go to the optician. That's great for you. Pleased it was so quick. That's exactly the response he got that he had to wait til it was worse. Thanks for the reply
  7. Medical issues

    Hi, Where was this? My Dad has stopped driving at night as he can barely see with the headlights, his Doctor says he has cataracts yet his doctor wont refer him to have them removed. So frustrating
  8. Need your suggestions. I do a lot of driving and have a gut feeling we are gonna get loads of snow this year (wishful thinking). Anyone recommended great cars in the snow? I was thinking you can't go wrong with Range Rover

      I think the one you need is the NCAR model. :girl_devil:

      Buy a 4x4.

  9. Stunning radar tonight. That would be the best snow streamer in years if it was winter. Shame it's August. I shall not put the heating on tonight...I shall not put he heating on tonight!

      Fingers crossed for winter. 

  10. Had a good storm here about 2:30. About 20 mins of CG lightning, loud thunder, hail and torrential rain. Heavens have just opened again but no thunder or lightning
  11. The grass has never been greener and I was tempted to put the heating on last night. Is this really August!

      15c at night and you want the heating on?! Single digit temps, I might agree with you.

      It was 15oC at 3pm....it def dropped lower than round these parts that night

  12. Actually got sunburnt today. Got the shorts out and did the gardens. Very nice and quite hot at times. Oh how tomorrow will be different
  13. It has been really windy here the last few days but today just had coffee in the garden in the sun (albeit with some layers on)
  14. Instinct tells me if we can't get summer now then we'll probably end up having an indian summer. Love September/Oct when its warm and sunny. It helps with the impending feeling of doom of what is a british winter lol

    1. karyo


      Is there such a thing as a British winter?

    2. cheeky_monkey


      Its been a hot summer here in Alberta so far

      So I've heard CM - lots of smoke in Canmore from the BC fires though. Hope it's going well out there for you 

  15. Wow - so windy. Some branches are down in the back garden. Stormy just without the rain
