  1. I caught my Mrs turning it up last night from the normal 20c to 21c (she is a right wimp for cold), we have our heating on 24/7 365 days a year. It's on a thermostat without any timers set, so if it drops below the set temperature then on comes the heating. I have heard it kick on a few times this month, but only for short periods as it doesn't take it long to heat the house 1 or 2 degrees. up stairs is cooler as the thermostatic rad valves are set at 18c, so only downstairs is normally 20c.
  2. nice one thanks for that, shoreham i'm sure would be bit higher wind as is other side of the downs and is on the coast. Stupid me hadn't thought of wunderground
  3. Max gust in my back garden was 39.1mph Is there a website that can tell me what max gust was on weather stations near me? would like to compare with mine to see if it reads about right to others near me.
  4. Hurricane Irma

    I've been in hurricane season, not just because it is cheaper but because I would be up for being caught up in a hurricane
  5. Been a lovely sunny morning here, few light clouds about, but still quite hot at 24.6c in the shade. I'm not expecting any thunderstorms in my area tonight, purely going off past experience of normally missing out on them, they often come close enough to let me know i'm missing out, but that is as far as they come lol
  6. peaked here about 20 minutes ago at 32.6c, just about to leave to go banger racing which will be hot as anything tonight
  7. 27c in my garden by 9:43am 26c in the factory I work in, good job i started at 6am today and will skip my lunch break so I can finish at 1:30am Will we see any storms today in the south east?
  8. my weather station has recorded 21.3mm of rain just since midnight, plus the 11.9mm it recorded last night that's 33.2mm in 24 hours in my garden, most it's had in a long long time. 29.8mph max gust today so far, I expect that to go up a fair bit yet looking at the forecast... good old British summer has arrived lol
  9. Raining in Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill
  10. Ha yeah it is a bit mad isn't it Haywards Heath to Nordkapp and back, crossing Dover to Calais is only part i'm not driving. Last time I did this route it worked out 5000 miles round trip (done in 10 nights!) but as i'm taking my Mrs and 3 kids this time I thought I would make it a bit more relaxing and do it in 20 nights, plus the kids will be flying back with the Mrs from Norway so not to miss out on as much school time. One things for sure we will see some snow! and have some cool memories hopefully.
  11. It's a shame we don't seem to be able to get any snow anymore in the south, especially while parts of Europe seem to have done well this year. I've just booked up my ferry crossing and will be setting off to drive to Norway next week with my caravan, first time i'm taking the kids with me so we can all get our snow fix
  12. I'm looking forward to it, cold spell is win win for me, it will either be cold and dry which i much prefer for outdoor stuff I have stacked up waiting to do, or it could even be cold and snowy which is even better. All options still on the table at this stage it seems.
  13. What are we expecting the peak of the wind to get to Sussex today, around 9pm?
  14. The lights flickering is due to electric brakers tripping out from a short , due to the wind and snow, tree branches etc, they switch over to another feed within spit seconds, but you notice it on your lights. It hasnt happened here in haywards heath at my house, but that could be because i have LED bulbs in every room rather than the typicle engery saver bulb most have
