  1. Sorry but I don’t get this ? This isn’t a day 10 chart or am I missing something here ?
  2. Some much needed rain over the past few weeks to fill the underground reserves and various local ponds and rivers. Hopefully we avoid anymore long dry spells.
  3. Just back from a great game of footy in the driving rain. Love it.
  4. Can’t be bad, being woken up by an unexpected bang in the morning. It is Friday after all
  5. Definitely wouldn’t say no to a bit of frost & fog, but frost seems to be the new snow.
  6. So Glad they put the Amber warning out for Thunderstorms . Torrential drizzle here all day
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/aug/29/the-air-conditioning-trap-how-cold-air-is-heating-the-world interesting read in the Guardian today.
  8. The earth is undoubtedly warming at an alarming rate and to be honest I think that hundreds of millions of additional AC units would do huge environmental damage. Not only do they release harmful gases that damage the ozone layer but also the raw energy needed to run them 24/7 wouldn’t be great not to mention the artificial warming of towns and cities. Unfortunately everyone’s got to do their bit.
  9. Just been on the Met office website having a look at 2018-19 rainfall averages compared to 1981-2010 average. Looks below normal for the south east to me but I’ll bow to your superior knowledge on this one.
  10. I think it’s more a culmination of the lack of rain over the past 2-3 years in the south east including in the winter rather than a few passing showers in summer that might make the ground a bit soggy. Definitely noticeable around here that ponds that are normally full of life are either bone dry or have a muddy puddle in the middle.
  11. It certainly is needed around these parts. Local lake to us looks more like the Serengeti.
  12. EPS certainly suggesting the south & south east will be at least a couple of degrees below average next week.
