  1. 17 days in Greece are coming to an end and I have not seen a single thunderstorm, not even a distant one! The thunderless year continues for me but at least I got a tan.

      October is normally the month that the first rains begin but completely dry and cloudless this year. Last October was similar.

  2. I thought the UK was bad for single use plastic but Greece takes the biscuit. The planet is doomed!

  3. Having a lovely time in Sithonia! Pine forests, mountains and quiet beaches. It's been 7 years since I last holidayed in Greece. I should do more often.

  4. Work done for 3 weeks! Let the holidays commence 🙂

      yes and so is sooty.🤗

  5. One more week in Manchester and then back to Greece for three weeks. The models look quite interesting for Eastern Med. My chances to get a suntan look low as things stand.

      Maybe i will experience my first thunderstorm of 2018 but knowing my weather luck it will probably be just warm rain.

      No, it is an unknown phenomenon there.

      Did we get the frost? None here in Piccadilly but that's not a surprise.

  7. It looks like this September will comfortably get an above average CET. Warm Septembers don't bode well for cold winters.

      It's not necessarily the temperature, it's the rainfall. Dry Septembers don't bode as well for cold Winters as unsettled Septembers but look here in my sample space featuring the September EWP and Winter CET for years that contained a notably cold Winter, a Winter with some notable cold/snow events etc. There's actually more dry Septembers (for EWP anyway) than I would have thought that was followed by cold Winters (or Winters with notable cold/snow events at some stage).

      I think the best Septembers for cold winters are cold and settled ones like 1986 whilst the worst Septembers for winters are warm and unsettled ones like 2011.

  9. Next week is looking cooler than it did a few days ago. Fingers crossed for a cool September to give us a chance for a cold winter.

      I'm expecting a three-hour-long thunderstorm to coincide with the lunar eclipse - the first bloody cloud for almost a week!💩

      To be honest, I would welcome a thunderstorm even it was to miss the eclipse.

      I think the Greek authorities  will have some questions  to answer like not clearing up dead leaf and fir matter  around residential  areas and no evacuation plans in place as in Australia and the US , an utterly tragic event 😓
