  1. With April charging towards its exit, I've found some interesting Dorset (Weather Book)weather items worth a mention:

    "April has the face of a monk but the claws of cat" (relating to how the temperature varies widely in April)

    1933 22nd April -Overnight low of -6C was recorded @ Maiden Newton.

    1938 April no rain at all was measured in Poole, with only 1" (25.4mm) measured from Feb 1st to April 30th

    Well the balloon flight got cancelled due to the wind! You never can win with British weather, sunny and 21c but too windy!! Expect we’ll rebook and it will be calm but wet!

    Anyway, lots of outdoor jobs to do in the sunshine today.

    It was breezy here earlier this morning around 7ish but that has dropped away now....bummer, you cant win at times with the British weather can you?

  3. With more to come....from Knockers' analysis:

    "Through Saturday the fading front stalls in the south so remaining cloudy here with some patchy rain but sunnier to the north..

    A similar scenario pertains over Saturday night and Sunday with the front loitering in the Channel area so still cloudy in the south and sunnier elsewhere."

    I think I'll go back into hibernation until Spring weather really does return...chow
