  1. 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.

      Cloudless her in Derby too. No wind and quite humid.

      Hope you get those storms you wanted.

      Just a faint hope for Manchester on Sunday.

      Frozen winter will be reality when the food prices go up and it a choice between eating and heating 

  2. Today is the day that I have a good chance for a thunderstorm! The northern part of the Adriatic is coming to life as I type this. 🙂

      Yes the western side of the Adriatic is having lots of fun. I hope it makes it here as it has gone humid.

      Distant storms last night with frequent lightning but nothing overhead. The activity is slowly moving away southwards today and high pressure taking over again sadly.

      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.

  3. Going to Croatia for 2 weeks. I hope I get to see some thunder there.

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

  6. The parties are over! Time to work.

  7. I hope the second half of September is proper wet in Manchester. I will be away and my plants will need watering.

      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.

  8. Where is Moki??

      Thundery wintry showers

      The Morecambe/Lancaster area seems to have had an unusually large amount of thundery activity over the past 2-3 weeks (though not today).  It was a good convective day down here in Exeter today, even had some thunder.

      I was in Morecambe on the hottest day of the summer (I can't rememberbtge exact date now but it was a Thursday ) and I saw an amazing thunderstorm that lasted a while.  It came from the Liverpool area moving north.  The same day Manchester was dry. I noticed many times that the southerly flow is good for coastal areas but terrible for Manchester. 

  11. All the storm activity missed Manchester once again. Just cloudy, warm nothingness.

      Amazing! I'd love to see the cloud that produced all this hail.
