  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.

      Had 4 frosts so far this Autumn.

      All that urban heat where you are keeps them away.

      Yes, I normally don't see any frost here till late November if  am lucky. October 2010 was an exception. I had a proper frost and ice morning on the 21st Oct.

    The last minimum had very long spotless periods and that's what I want to see. Without those there won't be anything special about this cycle.
  3. I thought the UK was bad for single use plastic but Greece takes the biscuit. The planet is doomed!

    I was hoping that the spotless spells would get longer and longer by now but sadly not the case. Today we have two sunspots and a solar flux of 72.

    Hurricane Leslie

    The NHC has shifted the path a bit further north than yesterday. Still quite a bit of disagreement in the models.. The UKMO takes her to northwest Iberia while the GFS is the most southerly.

    Hurricane Leslie

    The NHC has eventually changed Leslie's track. They expect her to take an easterly path and affect southern Iberia. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/graphics_at3.shtml?cone#contents She might even make it to western Med as a tropical depression.

    Hurricane Leslie

    The risk of flash floods must be very high for those areas that are not used to seeing much rain.

    Hurricane Leslie

    The 6z ICON also joins the ECM with a track through southern Portugal and into Spain. The 0z had a path similar to the UKMO

    Hurricane Leslie

    Leslie continues to puzzle with her track. The 0z ECM and Aprege take her towards Portugal while the gfs continues to show impacts for the Canaries and then move her westwards again.

    Hurricane Michael

    Unbelievable how much this hurricane has strengthened in the last 48 hours even beating the models. The only good thing is that he is not hitting the most populated areas of Florida at landfall.

    Hurricane Michael

    Michael is looking healthy this morning with 90mph winds and further strengthening expected during the day. The track still takes him to the Florida Panhandle.so no variation there.

    Hurricane Leslie

    I wish she would turn south and then west again to extend her life.
  13. Well, we had a cracking SSW earlier this year. We shouldn't expect one every winter (although it would be nice).
  14. 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.

  15. It is rising fast! I guess it will go positive this month.
  16. Work done for 3 weeks! Let the holidays commence 🙂

      yes and so is sooty.🤗

  17. Crete is going to get hammered! I just hope the heavy rains miss Athens as the city is very prone to flash floods especially after the recent fires.
  18. This September has turned out a lot better (cooler) than expected. This gives me hope for the winter ahead. Wasn't Sept 2017 about average temperature wise?
  19. High pressure in Alaska continues to pump a lot of warmth into the Arctic, no wonder there is no meaningful refreeze so far and this pattern is set to persist. If anything, Typhoon Tremi is expected to move north over Japan and continue its journey northwards (as a storm system) bringing more warmth into the Arctic.

    Autumn 2018

    I get condensation and dampness mainly in the en suite bedroom from late October to end of February. So I use a dehumidifier for a couple of hours every morning which reduces all that extra moisture. After February the rising sun solves the problem. I also make sure I air the rooms when possible.

    Typhoon mangkhut

    Impressive! Trami is almost stationary now but it is expected to head for southern Japan.

    Autumn 2018

    Oh yes, in July my flat was also like an oven.
  23. Regarding Katla, there is nothing to indicate that the volcano is about to erupt. It may take still a few more years before an eruption takes place. When she erupts, people around the volcano will be affected and the biggest danger are lahars because of the fast melting of the Myrdalsjokull glacier. There will be ashfall too in parts of Iceland but that depends on the wind direction. The biggest effect for the UK will be disruption to air traffic but again that's dependent on the wind direction.

    Autumn 2018

    It was perfectly comfortable in my flat without the heating on. I just put on a long sleeve shirt and that was it. I kept the balcony door closed though for the first time since May.
  25. Consider yourself lucky! No storms at all here this summer. A season to forget! Hopefully we will get thundersnow this December!
