    According to Spaceweather.com, 2009 did indeed have 260 days spotless, but that wasn't in an unbroken run. I do, however, agree with Yarmy and have to ask you to provide a link for your claim of NASA's October 2018-Aug 2019 forecast.
  2. Hail formed on snow pellets. Got hailed on in July near Gatwick once.
  3. I can't remember witnessing falling snow at 6C in any month.
  4. Sustained wind speeds far higher than I was expecting from the forecast. No thunder.
  5. The uppers are one thing; the temps at ground level will most likely preclude anything white falling in this region. John. Please could you add your location to your profile. Makes it much better for the rest of us to work out what's going one when you're reporting snow outside. Ta.
  6. Agreed. It is ridiculous that for sustained wind speeds of 16 mph, and possible gusts of up to 41 mph (that in a very short window out of the episode, mostly it's predicted gusts of up to 31 mph), London is under a yellow weather warning for the next couple of days. Even sustained wind speeds of 31 mph shouldn't merit a shock horror warning.

    I've not been on here for a while. Have there been any new scientific papers about any possible direct link between the solar cycle and temps in the British Isles. I'd be fascinated to see if there is an 11 / 22 year pattern relating directly to the solar cycle.
  8. Things that tick you off?

    The Italians who never learned to paint!!! What I can't stand is people who are needlessly intolerant.

    I discovered this afternoon that one of my neighbours grew up here: http://www.bran-castle.com/ Even scarier than Hemmydoodles.
  10. September 23rd The End?.

    3 hours, 50 minutes to go until it's proved to be utter bunkum!
  11. Earthquake Activity Thread

    15.1 km down. Risk of surface damage is high in a fairly localised region according to the underlying geology

    You could have warned us! Only if you're very, very bad.

    Tut, Louby. Didn't you see the "Do not unlock" notice?

    Hemmykins!!!! Who unlocked his cage?
