  3. The Parklife Festival has finished and the thousands of basic teenagers and young adults are leaving the city. The thought that one day in the not so distant future those people will procreate leaves me speechless.

      I suspect Ed means a word for an aquatic bird, starts with 's' and ends in 'hag'.

    You don't like storms Nick? I could kill for one! Manchester has been exceptionally dry through May and overall warm too. Not my kind of weather and June doesn't seem to offer much excitement either.

    I can't blame him! I bet he didn't expect his thread to come to life 4 years later

    Nuisance sunspots continue to appear. Until a couple of weeks ago it looked good for achieving 100 spotless days in June but now I am starting to wonder if it will have to be pushed to July.
  8. We have Alberto already! https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
  9. Thunderstorm activity has increased and became better organised according to the latest advisory. Let's see if we get Alberto this weekend as the system tracks north over the open water. http://www.nola.com/hurricane/index.ssf/2018/05/tropical_depression_gulf.html
  10. Despite the cooler waters, a low pressure system which is currently on the Yucatan peninsula may gradually develop over the next few days as it moves slowly northwards. The forecast track takes it anywhere from west Florida coast to Louisiana. I guess the further west the track is the more chance it has to develop due to the warmer SSTs. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

    I love Budapest, I went 3 times, twice in the summer and once in winter. The summer can be extremely hot (35-40c on most days) but you get the chance to see some spectacular thunderstorms. Also, many tourists in the summer. My winter visit was my favourite one as there are much fewer tourists around and you get to soak up the true atmosphere of the city. A walk up Citadella is highly recommended as you can see the whole city from there. Also try one of the numerous Turkish baths which is a great chance to mix with the locals. A lot of Budapest's magic is due to its bridges and one of them leads to Margaret island. It is in the middle of the river and a true oasis especially on a scorching hot day as it is covered in trees. A great place to relax with a drink and listen to the live music during the summer months. Language was not an issue in any of my visits. Even the people who don't speak english were friendly and happy to help.
  14. Do you know how non-bellissimo was the air that you inhaled in London? Especially on a day with little wind to push the pollution away. At least in Liverpool your lungs are relatively safe.
  15. Of course low humidity makes the heat a bit easier to tolerate. However, low humidity also means almost no chance of rain/storms which makes it extremely boring. It brings me bad memories of my summers in Greece - barren skies for days on end, drought, heat and deadly forest fires. At least in the UK we don't have to worry about forest fires as there are hardly any forests left.

    I've read somewhere that coronal holes are more common when the sun is spotless so we should see them quite frequently in the coming months and years.

    Yes, it's been good indeed! The first snow was in September which I was surprised to see (I went back to the East Pyrenees in September).

    Is there much snow left on the Pyrenees? I was there early May last year and there was still quite a bit.

    Good to see that the new sunspot died a death before it got a chance to be counted.
