  1. Absolutely insane rain in last 10 minutes in haywards heath West Sussex
  2. Are we expecting the channel to fire up tonight again?
  3. Lovely day here in haywards heath West Sussex, not a cloud in the sky. Currently 25.7c
  4. Just had a 5 minute shower here in haywards heath West Sussex, been a lovely hot sunny day today with a high temperature of 25.6c Currently 21.4c and has a stormy feeling
  5. amazing the difference in temps within a small area, by 9am this morning it was 15c and sunny most of the day. high of 19.3c, currently its 16.8c Hoping for a storm tonight or over next few days, but I don't get my hopes up as haywards heath often misses out with them going to the sides (i think due to the south downs)
  6. I'm probably a bit crue for thinking this but I want a thunder storm more than i normally do tonight, my teeenage daughter has 2 of her mates staying over, and they are camping in the garden it a tent lol Does look like there is some in the channel about an hour away from here in west Sussex
  7. In my garden in haywards Heath it reached 28.0c at 1:54pm today Currently 24.5c Absolutely amazing weather for April, typical it would be right after the 2 week school holidays
  8. No rain here in Burgess Hill so far today, still time for that to change though I guess. I think we will be in the other extreme within 2 weeks, with temps in the mid 20's and talk of hosepipe bans
  9. LOL whats that all about? last time I checked you had stones on the beach anyway
  10. Haywards Heath Air temp in my back garden 0.0c (DP reading -3.3c) (garden weather station) Tarmac road out front of house reading 1.3c on the surface (read with laser thermometer) grass in back garden reading 1.5c on surface (laser thermometer) grass in back garden @ 1cm depth reading 3.3c (read using probe thermometer)
  11. I've noticed round here that i have 6mm of snow on cars, bins etc. but the snow on the grass and paths etc has melted away. I have a probe in the soil in the back garden 1cm deep and it's reading 3.4c, the air temp 10 feet above that probe is 0.0c, so i guess the warmth last week from the sun is still in the ground, my drive hasnt been gritted but is bone dry with zero snow, yet the cars have it on them
  12. Morning everyone We got a dusting here in Haywards Heath West Sussex, 6mm to be exact As it is the weekend I was up for taking the family to the snow with our sledges, can anyone help and tell me which direction I need to travel to find better snow enough for sledging?
  13. When the kids go to bed I'm thinking of going out for a drive in my 4x4 Hilux to find the snow with both my brothers, earlier today I thought it looked like within a hour of Haywards Heath (Maybe Box hill?) we would find good amount of snow, is that not looking the case now? Where is a high up place that will have good amount of snow tonight, nearest to Haywards Heath in West Sussex?
  14. I just took the temp of the road outside my house with a laser thermometer and it's 1.2c, with air temp on my garden weather station of -0.7c
  15. more times than not this happens, it did in the last spell 3 weeks ago, and has done many times in last 20 years of me radar/model watching on the internet. It's normally mid Sussex with Haywards Heath being the centre, I wonder if it's to do with the topography of the land with the south downs etc.
