  1. Looking like today we are too far west today after being too far east yesterday, oh well stick with the overcast conditions and will need to water this week after so much promises from the earlier forecast of a lot of rain, even tomorrow we look to be too far west again. Currently 18.2°C after an overnight low of 15.5°C at: 05:03 and under grey skies. Maybe later a better chance for some rain, as much as we have seen rainfall, the garden dries out very quickly at this time of year.

    Decided to pop down to Mudeford quay  to enjoy this beautiful evening!  Took my camera along and was treated to the amazing display of noctilucent clouds, obviously others have posted about them already, but Wow!

    Amazing series of shots I am sooooooo jealous, and gutted that I missed it...well done great shots.

  3. The rag is at it already...

    Bournemouth and Poole Weather were even most optimistic. Forecasters say inland temperatures could reach higher than 36c across England, with highs of 43c.

    However, before the warm weather is set to kick in the Met Office has issued another weather warning for thunderstorms on Sunday and Monday.

    The forecaster said: "Thunderstorms may develop bringing torrential rain and lightning, with possible flooding and disruption to travel."

    The warning, which will be in place from 3pm on Sunday until 11.59pm on Monday, covers the whole of Dorset.


  4. Hmm, local rag has posted this today, hmmm

    THUNDERSTORMS could be on the cards again this week, the Met Office has warned, as the unsettled weather continues.

    A yellow weather warning for thunderstorms has been issued for Tuesday and Wednesday.

    The warning comes into force at 6pm on Tuesday and will remain in place until 9pm on Wednesday.

    It covers Bournemouth, Poole and the rest of the county.

    “Torrential rain, hail and lightning” could be seen in some places which would bring with it potential travel disruption and flooding.

    Power cuts and lightning strikes could also occur.

    The Chief Forecaster said: “Through Tuesday evening there is potential for thunderstorms to break out, initially across parts of southern England, before developing more widely overnight and then clearing through Wednesday morning. The thunderstorms may merge into areas of more prolonged and widespread rain for a time on Tuesday night and at first on Wednesday. “

    The spokesperson said between 15 and 30mm of rain could be widespread with as much as 50mm in some locations.

    They added: “After a drier interlude, further thunderstorms may develop in a few places during Wednesday afternoon, mainly south-eastern parts of England. Whilst rain and flooding is likely to be the largest impact, hail, lightning and gusty winds will be additional hazards.”

    No further rain this afternoon after that very heavy shower earlier. Dry and cloudy for the rest of the afternoon since then. 14.2°C 

    It missed you today, we were perfectly positioned for some decent rainfall, and it is still raining, so far 5.8mm 7.4mm with 2mm in the last hour, not that heavy just slow and progressive as the area of rain only slowly moves westwards..This little puppy has been sat over us for the last two hours or so...

    Lovely down at Southbourne.


    Here's the view towards home and the cell that prompted a trip to the beach.


    It's been one of those days that you can look to the 4 main compass points and see different cloud in each quadrant, was sat in the garden earlier watching the cell activity to the north for the last hour or so..Meanwhile here it's been a fine day and 19.6°C at: 15:20
