  1. Bit of blue stuff, with white bits here and there and a yellow thingy. Colourful day today..oh and it's 7.6C to boot..
  2. By George the SSW (Sudden Southern Warming) has occurred as we made it up to 10.6°C at: 13:16 today
  3. Does that include these bitz down 'ere on the sarf coast, where it has usually fizzled by the time it reaches 'ere... Does this suggest the SSW (Snow South of Winchester) might happen?
  4. Morning All, no need to panic today is the same as the one before and the ones before that, it's cloudy. Currently 7.1°C and has flat lined for most of the night on all the measures
  5. Morning All, another Groundhog Day in the making as the cloud persists. Currently Temp: 5.4 °C & Dew Point: 3.9 °C..
  6. Morning All, as I mentioned when I went awol on Thursday with all the cloud expected it would be cloudy on my return, and I’m not disappointed! With an overnight low of -2.8°C it is currently -0.0°C so things area bit white still.
  7. Two things come readily to mind, on your above suggestion. Firstly units that run in thee USA "often" use a different set of frequencies (if the unit is wireless, of course). These frequencies may cause RF interference within the UK and other nearby units, so worth checking before you buy, also if that is the case you will only be able to use offshore add ons to be compatible (again only an issue if the unit is of the wireless kind). Importing items from friends, can sometimes work, although the PO are a lot better at identifying these items these days! Firstly for insurance purposes the sender has to identify the value in case of loss. Saying something costs only $20 instead of $200 could be an issue if it's lost as you have a low value claim for compensation. Second the item is usually defined on the shipping label (and checks for batteries these days are becoming much more common). So if the label says wind sensor $20, the boys at Mt Pleasant will know their prices and determine something like that is worth much more than the stated price. Also you could until recently get items shipped as "gifts" but even those these days are prone to import duty. So unless you are lucky, you have the import duty to be prepared to pay, and also a standing PO charge of around £18 for the Post Office privilege to sting you as they handled your parcel. Just a couple of thoughts.... Regards Db
  8. Morning All, it's.....no let me confirm....yes it's cloudy today. As the temperature has flat-lined for most of the night, it is, as it has been for some time with the Temp: 3.0 °C & Dew Point: -0.6 °C, RH77% @ 1042.8mb
  9. Ha you have to really laugh when Nathan Rao is in full swing. From the Express today,he wrote....”Near unprecedented changes in the atmosphere above the North Pole will collude to create a perfect storm of brutal weather drivers, experts warn.” oh really... as he headlines his article ....Rare TRIPLE polar vortex to trigger HEAVY SNOW across UK in January.....
  10. Hmm, the forecasty thingy for here suggests gross forever.. I'll be going in to hospital tomorrow so a lot more to concern me than clouds right now....but at least when I do come home it will be.......cloudy...
  11. Any chance of a thread title update as it says ...Short range model discussion - into 2018 even if we don't go for a new thread?
  12. Reading the thread title, is it worth bringing it up to date at least even if a new thread isn't started...Stratosphere temperature watch 2017/18!
  13. Morning All, currently with the Temp: -0.7 °C & Dew Point: -2.1 °C, first frost of the year!
  14. Clearing skies might suggest the temperatures may fall away some more yet, as the night is but young. Currently Temp: 6.1 °C & Dew Point: 3.8 °C..
  15. Whoa a New a Year and a new weather.....the yellow thing has come back in the middle of the blue stuff...Currently 4.8°C..
  16. Classic start to the New Year from the Dakly Star who cite “Forecasters have also warned that temperatures will plummet before a three-month deep freeze hits large parts of the country.” Whereas the Met Office quote was “The Met Office added that January will be “unsettled” and said “severe gales are possible” throughout the month.There's a higher chance of seeing colder spells, and given that, as a result, there's a slightly higher chance of snow across the UK. "It's far too early to say in any detail, it might be that parts of Scotland which usually get snow will get more, or you might see snow spread more widely." Not sure they are saying the same as the reported headline....
  17. And WHICH abysmal gloom is that, today, yesterday, the day before yesterday, the day before the day before yesterday, or the day before the day before the day before yesterday?
  18. I love the text it promotes it's website with: As the closest dispensary to DIA, this weed shop is a convenient spot for out-of-state visitors who just got off the plane, and locals who live outside the city. With both recreational and medical marijuana, we offer relaxation for jet-lagged travelers as well as alleviation for our medical patients. We’ll help you understand the differences between our various weed options so you can make the most informed decision possible. Almost as wacky as the Rocky Mountain Arsenal just over the freeway that was in the 90's a producer of chemical weapons...but is now a wildlife refuge (just don't sniff the grass too much...)
  19. With 3/4 million reads (Yes crazy numbers) and the year change, ANY chance of starting a new thread for 2019, please MODS?
  20. Morning All, a damp start after the rain last night, currently overcast with a Temp: 9.3 °C & Dew Point: 8.4 °C..
