  4. So for the first time in its history, net weather has issued a forecast for a mild winter! :-0

      normal winter most likely, like a summer forecast saying it will be warm or very warm with hotter periods, along with a few heavy showers/thunderstorms. It will probably happen somewhere and be correct.

      The Greek meteo expects high pressure across the Med and the Balkans in their winter forecast. This is crap news for us as it means mainly westerly winds for northern Europe.

  5. Travel information is a rare commodity in Sicily. No notice boards and the customer service office is mostly closed. You just turn up at the station and hope for the best. Still better than hiring a car though, they drive like crazy here.

      So far Catania,  Agrigento, valley of temples and Palermo. The sun feels strong even now in early December but the nights are cool.

  7. You know it is going to be another poor winter when all the long range models show mild and all the hopes for cold lie on a potential stratospheric warming. As if we didn’t have a SSW last winter and ended up with a mild winter and record breaking warmth in February. Some people never learn!

      Sorry to hear mate, i hope he will be ok. Will they review his medication?

      They are repeating the bloods tomorrow to see what his white cell levels are compared with last Friday.

      Its difficult with the meds that he's on. They do have side effects but compared with seizures its the less of the two evils. 

      They might take him off the meds but it will be a controlled reduction as its not something that should be stopped instantly.

      Hopefully his white cell levels improve and won't be necessary to make changes to the meds.

      Dear Santa,

      Please can we have a winter with snow like this.

  11. Frosts in Manchester city centre are rare events even in the winter months, so to wake up today and see the first frost of the season was a nice surprise.

      Slight frost this morning, so that's two so far this season. If I manage another couple of frosts by the end of November, this autumn will be classed as severe for Manchester ! 🙂

      Thundery wintry showers

      I went to Morecambe numerous times around 2002-2005, mostly to go ten pin bowling.  I didn't think much of the inner parts of the town, but I thought the sea front was pretty good and that the statue of Eric Morecambe worked really well.  Overall though I preferred Lancaster to Morecambe.

      I love the big Victorian houses in Morecambe and the view of Cumbria from there. It is a charming English town that has kept alive unlike many other English coastal towns that have died a death.

      A wet welcome back to the UK.  Not surprised about the canal, is it serious?

      A very wet welcome. I got drenched last night walking a small distance from the bus stop to my flat. 

      Hopefully not serious so far, just some inconvenience for people who go walking and running on the canal path. 

  15. Thunderstorms are forecast again for this evening. This time the profile is less moist (no southwesterly) and the horizon is clear from low clouds so i expect a better view of the cloud structure. I doubt the storm will be as intense as two days ago but anything is a bonus as this is the last chance before returning to the UK.

      Raining now. The storm moved in quite fast. Irregular thunder, not very frequent. Also it doesn't roll very long indicating that the cb is not very tall. Still nice though 🙂

      Yes that's to the south of me but it is the same storm system.

      It is still thundering here although the main body of the storm is now to the east of me towards the mainland.  For a time visibility was reduced to less than 100 metres due to the intensity of the rain!

      This morning is very calm and the sky clear. Almost like nothing has happened. Some more excitement is possible by tomorrow evening when a trough looks like coming down from the north Adriatic.

  17. The Bura wind is blowing today. It is a dry and cool wind from the east/northeast. It means that the sky is completely cloudless and blue.  This is not my kind of weather lol. Thankfully it won't last and by Sunday we will get a much more moist flow from the southwest and the thunderstorm potential will increase again.

      Yes, the Adriatic storms seemed to decay as they moved out towards Croatia.  Monday and Tuesdays outlook for next week may give rise for a bit of excitement for you, as always we'll wait and see.

      In the end it was a false alarm. Dorian will stay in the Atlantic. Florida has a lucky escape.

      I need rain and lots of it for my garden. I live in Thurrock in the South East which has it's own micro climate and the Met office does not have a weather station for this area, and the borough's rain is not recorded. It has been over a week since there has been any rain and I have to use a 14 litre water can to water my back garden and it takes several trips to do at night and it is a very tiring job.
