  1. Met Office yellow alert for rain tomorrow now here. Some locally high rainfall possible but hopefully no issues from this. Last month saw some pretty bad flooding from downpours in places.

      'Tis gorgeous here too. I did some gardening early, after lunch and popped my shorts a t-shirt on. Chilly easterly in the shade though, but gloriously warm sunshine.

      UHI doesn't really affect max temps Daniel, that's why Heathrow is usually the hot spot and central London isn't. Mostly affects night-time temperatures.

      I say Cheltenham or Pershore.

      37C somewhere in SW midlands

  4. 31c already predicted for here on Tuesday! 32-34c on the day looking ever more possible imo given temps often seem to exceed forecasts a little in set ups like this! 

  5. Crikey, satellite shows little true clear skies over much of Europe currently. Lots of convective/infill cloud. :(

  6. Still about 20c at nearly 10pm. Still sitting outside comfortably in t shirt and shorts. Bliss. :D

  7. 25c and lots of hot sunshine. BBQ in about an hour and some Cornish Rattler cyder to hand. Days like these are unbeatable. :D

  8. Already fast approaching 16c! Could be on for that 20c today! :D

  9. If only all northerlies were this interesting!!! Sun, sleet, hail, snow, rain, gusty winds and 2 thunderstorms this evening!!! :D

  10. Wow! Don't think I have ever seen so many individual showers on the radar!!!

      I've seen similar but when something amazing happens it tends to not happen here...

      Popcorn convection 

  11. What is wrong with 2016? :( Prince has died aged 57. Another famous face gone! :(

  12. First 20c of the year has been reached! Prize goes to Porthmadog in Wales. :)

      Sort of makes sense how this is one of the earliest Spring's on record down here.

      William it's been average 

  13. Time for some sunbathing me thinks. Stunning day today and lucky it coincides with my day off. :D

      Make sure you use sun protection.

  14. Surprise very heavy snowfall here in Stourbridge this morning. The perks of being up early! ;)

      had snow here as well, but missed it falling, must have been back edge snow, around 7am, normally up then but not today

      I caught a video of the snow on Twitter looked like a good covering in Stafford 

  15. Surprise surprise to see that cloud amounts have been vastly overestimated today. Turning into a lovely pleasant sunny day. :)

      We've had increasingly gloomy skies since around 2 this afternoon.

      Cloudier here now but for the vast majority of the afternoon it has been glorious here. Far cry from the cloudy symbol forecasts! Indeed Daniel it has not been as great for you in the East, often a case in Spring that North Sea cloud especially affects eastern parts. Today was perhaps more a bit of luck with timing of when the gap in cloud arrived. Fortunate it was in time for the afternoon here. :)

  16. What a stunning crystal clear blue sky day. Really really pleasant in the sun. Time to cut the lawn! :)

    1. Mapantz

      Yep! I did my first cut of the year a few days ago- really is nice out there. :)

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      Nice but very hazy here, not good for views or the blueest sky so could do with some clearer air really

  17. Another fantastic day! Really pleasant in the sun. :)

  18. Thought it has been glorious in the sun today. It's strength really starting to show now. Lots of fresh growth in the woods and the birds tweeting till late. Could have easily been April! 

  19. UV index climbs to 2 here this week. A sure sign spring and summer is coming! :D

      Yes it is getting that time of year when southwest peninsula starts noticing the strengthening sun

      Shame the UV index has to increase though really!

      Yeah an ever strengthening sun now, you can feel the warmth in it on clear & calm days. Noticed last week it made short work of the frost once you get to late morning onwards. There was -6/-7c in some places at dawn and by the afternoon the temp was up to around 5c. 

  20. Fantastic snowy evening here in Stockholm. Had a few cm's within about an hour and a bit.

      Isn't Scandinavian snow brilliant! We went to Sweden and Denmark a few years ago in January in the middle of a big snow event. The night we arrived nearly a metre of snow fell but it was almost effortless getting around the city the next day. Enjoy your trip...

  21. Plenty of snow here!!!!.... On my train to Stockholm! Lol

  22. Washington about to get 2ft of snow. Why can't we ever get nearthat here from Atlantic lows? :(

      Daffs must be a bit confused, come March leaves will be falling down. Who has hijacked costa's status update?  Wasn't me.

      Lol, I am having notifications galore here. ;)

  24. So brilliant to see snowfall and a covering again. Been a long time coming. :)

  25. Don't think I have much energy to chase the cold now. Another GFS run, even more watering down of the cold. Barely anything now and really will be amazed if we get below 0 next week. All in all, not far from average.

      The Atlantic will probably be in charge come next Saturday
