  1. So, has anyone taken the plunge and bought the new WeatherLink live system from Davis? "Now you can stream your sensor data live, effortlessly, to any smart device in your Local Area Network (LAN). WeatherLink Live receives your data from your outside Sensor Suites and add-on sensors and transmits it via Wi-Fi to the WeatherLink Cloud. Setup couldn’t be simpler. (And you can keep your tool box in the garage!) Just download the app, follow the steps, and you’ll be viewing your data on your phone app or desktop in minutes" I like the thought of being able to see the data on my station when I am out and about, but at £250 I'm hesitant to make a purchase until I know if it's as good as it sounds!
  2. Best storm for a few years here. Strong gust front which has left a lot of debris on the road. Lots of power cuts locally and a few sirens. So much more comfortable now, dropped the temperature from 28C to 22C now.
  3. MetOffice text forecast for tomorrow now saying maximum temperature of 39C for East of England. Always tends to be accurate as it's forecaster written rather than automated from raw model data.
  4. I'm sure it's pretty accurate. Official stations near me showed slightly warmer in a few locations. That temperature was recorded at 1.34pm. There was high level cloud sweeping in from the west that day which them tempered maximum temperatures. Highest temperatures were Bury St Edmunds eastwards that day, so many stations as you say did record 32Cish as a max.
  5. Woken up by incredibly loud thunder, house shaking stuff even when at a distance. Heaviest rain my station has ever recorded in 14 years! 1284mm/hr!!!! We only got 1.6mm but we had it in the space of seconds.
  6. Looking back on my records, I recorded 34.3C on 27th July last year which was the peak of the hot spell, think we may well beat that on Thursday. I updated my weather station two years ago from a bog standard David Vantage Pro 2 to a new one with FARS (Fan Aspiration Radiation Shield - for more accurate temp readings) - it was definitely the right choice with these incredible hot spells this year and last.
  7. Well that would certainly make my weekend at Latitude rather interesting! Best pack a mac!
  8. Note that there are new cells developing rapidly north of Rennes (west of the main focus currently). I have a feeling that the radar is really going to come alive over the next hour.
  9. Impressive rainfall rates out towards Woodbridge. Looking close to 150mm/hr so must be a hail core I would assume. I',m in a rubbish on the edge of it.
  10. Impressive rainfall rates on the Suffolk coast right now. Radar suggests close to 150mm/hr. Must be a hail core I would assume. Just getting a rubbish on the edge here but can here the rumbles in the distance.
  11. Something suddenly developing just south of Colchester. Could this be lift off already?
  12. Drove home from Norwich about an hour ago. The amount of standing water and the heavyness of the rain between Long Stratton and Diss, I wouldn't be surprised if some stations did record that, or more.
  13. Interesting to see something a bit more lively suddenly appearing just south of the main rain band on the last 2 or 3 radar returns. Looks just north east of Hastings over the past 20 minutes
