  1. Look for a desktop scanner with slide scanning functionality - best solution overall.
  2. People will do well to remember this in Winter when posting charts at T+1000 - a completely futile exercise.
  3. Two apps I use are: Rain Alarm, which shows a live radar for the last few hours. Great to see which direction rain is approaching from and how quickly. Thermometer - which I used for running to check the local temperature, the data being pulled from local weather stations. Would be interested to hear of any radar apps that go back more than 3 hours, eg sometimes I want to see the radar from 24 hours ago and scroll forward to now.
  4. On the contrary, the upcoming "storm" has piqued my interest and I've returned to the forum after a break of a couple of weeks. For me, much more interesting than model watching hot oppressive weather, especially at this time of year - quite unusual for August to have such a windy spell. The irony is that the storm may not be named as we are not in the 'right' time of the year.
  5. Awful conditions today 😞

      when your fan blows hot air at you, you know something ain't right

  6. Not sure about that. For me, the week just gone was just right. Mainly dry, not too hot, not too cold. I was at a car show this weekend, and the weather was just right. I went to the same show last year and it was far too hot and uncomfortable and no-one enjoyed it. Yesterday it was sunny and 21C, absolutely perfect. I can't understand why anyone would want it to be hot when we have got the weather on offer that we have presently which is spot on. As for the models, I don't see a lot to be disappointed about in the reliable timeframe (T+144) - the fine and pleasant weather continues! Perfect!
  7. Yes I agree. 28C in Wakefield yesterday and a much more pleasant 19C today. Perfect summer weather!
  8. Not fussed about 30C, too hot. Currently 26C in Wakefield which is quite alright!
  9. Lofthouse, Wakefield. Local weather station reporting 23.0C at 12:31. Not massively hot and overall quite comfortable!
  10. That would be spot on, and much better than 30C plus and high humidity, which even a BBC forecaster said today would feel unbearable. Looking at tonight’s 18z, the 850 temps seem to want to tail off during the day, so temps might be pegged back as the day progresses.
  11. If there’s one thing everyone should learn from this is that you shouldn’t get hooked in by anything over 6 days away (T+144). We know this from snow hunting in the winter and it’s happened now with this plume.
  12. Not a long spell of hot weather though? Seems like it’s going to be all over by Sunday (until next time).
  13. That is a fair point. I am a weather enthusiast but high humidity doesn’t appeal.
  14. How about 25C and low humidity? Most of the population wouldn’t mind warm/hot weather if it wasn’t muggy or sticky. I’m hoping for the models to show a less humid (but still sunny and warm) outcome.
