    Just when I was ready to give up on the Great British Winter, along came the proper winters of 2008-09, 09-10, 10-11 & 12-13 to restore the faith. A new trend perhaps?

  1. 19.0C and 27.1mm for me please.
  2. Dear weathergods, please can we have that other weather back again - you know, the nice stuff? Blowy overnight. Lots of debris on the road - branches, down, etc. Some disruption on the railways, too. Sunshine and showers and still breezy this morning. Garden: bit of a state. Currently 13.8C. Hopefully, the nice version of summer will return soon!
  3. Flash crash bang wallop! For the past hour or so. Some torrential rain, too. Towers had been building since mid-morning and they delivered. Max of 21.7C.
  4. Excellent - many thanks as ever to everyone who makes this competition happen and good fun and interesting, too. Just hope I'm as accurate with June's prediction (flaming about covers it)!
  5. Non-event. One distant rumble, a few drops of rain and that was that. Nothing registered on the rain gauge, so that's now day 20 of no measurable rainfall. Sun is back out splitting the evening skies and it's 22C at almost 8pm. Braw!
  6. First few spots of rain here. No crash bang yet. Max of 23.8C.
  7. Matter of time here, too: hazy sunshine this morning, 20C already and humidity 84%. Bring it!
  8. Day 19 of the dry spell here. Looking at that chart, somehow don't think we'll be making it to 20 days in a row. This morning: low cloud + mist/general murk. Humid. Currently 15.5C. Yesterday was the warmest day of the year so far, with a max of 24.5C. Bring on the storms!
  9. Mist and low cloud took a while to burn aff today, but we managed sunshine and a max of 20.3C this arvo. Signs of a more unsettled (thundery?) blip as the week progresses, but the jet is still waaaaay up north, so reasonable optimism that the predominantly settled stuff will return over the weekend. Needless to say, after seventeen days without any rainfall, the Earn is looking rather low. Lang may it continue!
  10. Just braw. Maxed out at 24.4C this afternoon - and it's still 23C at 8pm.
  11. Rinse and repeat. Another belter.
