      Bargain direct flights to Denver (under £500) so had to take them!

  2. Back from my Arizona chase! Got some stunning lightning pics to upload. Now the long 9 month wait until I next see storms :(

  3. Mid way through the Arizona storm chase, temperatures regularly into the mid 40s but biblical lightning. Also a beautiful part of the world.

      Anything 40 odd a no go for me..

    2. Mokidugway


      I'm in Arizona in three weeks time looking forward  to some flash flood chasing around slot canyons 

  4. Currently in Dublin ahead of flying to Phoenix tomorrow for the Netweather Arizona monsoon storm chase!



      The heat is on but with spectacular pay back?

    2. Wiltshire_snow_lover


      Good luck, Have fun

    1. Yarmy

      moaning? I'll be a puddle on the floor

    3. c00ps


      July 1 2015 or 16 it was 35oC with humidity felt like 40oC. It wasn't nice.

    4. Weather26


      Right someone reset the model, they're drunk.

  9. There is nothing to suggest us hitting 35c next week, let alone 40c! Where are these ramps coming from?!

      It's disappointing to see respected posters shouting 35-40c in the MOD thread, there is nothing of the sort being shown. It's staying very warm with occasional 30s but nothing extreme, thankfully. However, it wouldn't take much of a synoptic shift to push us well above that.

    3. lassie23


      i hope it rains soon as fires are breaking out and deep cracks are showing up everywhere

    4. weatherguru14


      Louis Lear? another  bbc lovely 🙄

      The sights are worse than the sounds but it is a close call.

      and the nude shoppers in aldi

    4. dusk


      Largely, the sights / sounds / smells of "council" then?


  11. 10,000 miles and 3 weeks later my first storm chase of the year comes to an end. Despite a very difficult season we still saw tornadoes, numerous supercells and epic lightning. Roll on Arizona next month. 

  12. Heathrow today, Texas tomorrow! :D

  13.  Will be boarding my flight to tornado alley this time next week :D

    1. mikeofmacc


      Awesome! Have fun and stay safe. Are you on T3 too?

    2. Nick L

      Nick L

      Yeah I'm staff for both Tour 2 and 3 :)

      Hot in the wall to wall sunshine here. But cool in the shade and zero tonight. That's cool.

      I would almost say it's cold, but I won't because I definitely have no life.

      Well compared to what we'll see in 7 days time, the weather today is far more preferable. Actually had some hope of the weekend being nice (20 or so) ECM 12z is a nightmare and would produce mid-high 20s widely if it verifies. Thats too much.

  16. Really cool and fresh few days coming up!

    1. Dami


      oh goody:nea:

  17. Ridiculous rainfall totals in the offing for Sunday/Monday. 100mm possible in the SE if some output is to be believed.

  18. Start of Tour 1 coming into view on the GFS, chase season is almost here! :D

    1. jtay


      The GFS suggests that it might finally kick off Tue/Wed/Thur next week. Let's hope that's just the start.

    2. Mokidugway


      Might be in Oklahoma at beginning of June on business for 5 days , might get lucky 😀😀

    3. Nick L

      Nick L

      Yeah a few days of fun before it quietens down again by the looks of things :( And I'll still be out there until mid-June Moki so I'm hoping it will be active too!

  19. Now why can't all summer heat be like this? Lovely!

      All I've done these last 2 days is sneeze. My head's banging and my already pathetic tolerance for heat is sorely under strain. I don't know how you southerners do it. I would have topped myself long ago.

      When I was out, I was surprised how I tolerated the heat as it usually makes my joints swell and ache a lot.  It is a lot cooler indoors, I have got my cardigan and dressing gown.  I might have to out again to get myself warm.

  20. Ava, Oklahoma started the day at 0c. It was 38c by afternoon. What a climate.

      That's way too hot for me!

      How do you even dress for weather like that?! Scarf and coat in the morning, melt regardless of what you have on in the afternoon!

  21. Now where are my shorts...

  22. Actually feels summer-like this evening. Love it.

  23. Sky Sports reporter at the Burton game wrapped up in a winter coat and scarf. Is she having a laugh?! It's gorgeous out there!

      Echoes the point I made in the spring thread yesterday, Nick. we all feel the temps differently. I'm in t shirts without a coat at 12c. Some people can wear winter coats in 28c heat. If she still feels cold in this, then she's a very blessed individual.

    3. MP-R


      I don't think I've ever seen anyone in a full winter coat in 28C heat, not even when I lived in Madrid where they whip them out at 20C. There really must be some oddities around!

  24. Day 5 without seeing sunlight. Human sacrifices have increased in Aylesbury.
