South East & East Anglia Regional Discussion - September 24th 2012>

Recommended Posts

Anyone else feel as disappointed as me with Karin? was expecting so much more from her down south.

I always thought it was just a matter of chance really. Late last week it didn't seem certain that the storm would even reach the UK. I always felt that the worst of the weather (rain anyway) would be where the front ground to a halt after moving north. It seems like this has happened over the north of England, particularly on the western side.

In terms of strong winds, then a strong September storm would be very unlikely to equal a strong storm in, say, December or January, so we still have that to look forward to.smile.png

There's still a chance of interesting weather here before all this finishes anyway, imo.smile.png

A bit off topic folks, sorry; but how do you quote just one part of a post and not the whole thing? Multi quote and quote both 'do' the whole thing with iPad. :(

Hi K,

I don't know, as I just delete the parts I don't want to reply to. No help at all unfortunately. Hopefully a technophile can help you.

Early start tomorrow for me, so I'm off to bed now. Exhausted today too!sad.png

Not finished yet, just might be a sting in it's tail..

We can expect everything but snow i think.. what if it was all snow! well it just does not work that way, i always say it can hiss it down with rain but when it comes to snow it rarely does large amounts.

Whoever said in an earlier post that there may be some early morning lightning was spot on. Quite a bit over Norwich at 05:00 am in the south. Lovely. Very clear starry morning too with Orion high above and saw a couple of very high meteorites. :D

Anyway...Mornin each. Have a good day. :)

Here's something to keep an eye (and ear!) out for later along coastal areas

12_20.gif

Now if you want to discover the secret to long life and happiness, you better get yourself onto the coast in Sussex:

Sea air the secret of long life as census shows Bexhill-on-Sea is Britain's centenarian capital

Perhaps it is the fresh sea air or the sunshine, but for almost 200 years the residents of Bexhill-on-Sea have been noted for their longevity.

Now that reputation has been borne out by official figures, after the first detailed analysis of last year’s census showed that the Sussex resort has more centenarians per head of population than anywhere else in the country. According to a breakdown of returns published yesterday, there are 66 people over the age of 100 in the borough of Rother, which centres on Bexhill.

A further 1,722 residents are in their 90s, with almost 7,000 in their 80s out of a total population of 90,600.

Remarkably, the second and third highest concentrations of centenarians are in neighbouring Worthing and Eastbourne while the Arun area of Sussex also makes it into the top 10 alongside the Scilly Isles, Torbay and Bournemouth. But Bexhill’s place at the top of the list will some as no surprise to locals.

A print hanging in the town’s museum commemorates a special dinner in 1819 attended by 25 gentlemen in their eighties – a unusual feat at the time, with 15 in their 70s waiting at the tables. Its headline reads “A Remarkable example of Longevityâ€.

First settled in Anglo Saxon times, the village was known for its health properties even before it was developed as a coastal resort in the first half of the 19th Century.

Although it does have some mineral springs, plans to develop Bexhill as a spa floundered because of the metallic water was judged unpalatable. During the age of Empire it was a popular place for British colonial officials to send their children to be educated, boasting around 350 boarding schools. Its reputation as a place to retire was already firmly established a century ago.

“There is a local joke that people retire to Bexhill and then forget to die,†said Julian Porter, curator of Bexhill Museum.

“It was always seen as a healthy place, a safe place and of course very sunny.â€

A recent survey ranked Bexhill as the sunniest resort in Britain, with as much as four hours of sunshine per week more than the average for seaside towns in Britain.

The centenarian hotspots:

Rother: 66 people of 90,588 are centenarians (0.073pc)

Worthing: 64 people of 10,4640 are centenarians (0.061pc)

Eastbourne: 54 people of 99,412 are centenarians (0.05pc)

West Somerset: 18 people of 34,675 are centenarians (0.052pc)

Torbay: 65 people of 130,959 are centenarians (0.05pc)

West Dorset: 48 people of 99,264 are centenarians (0.048pc)

East Devon: 61 people of 132,457 are centenarians (0.046pc)

Bournemouth: 84 people of 183,491 are centenarians (0.046pc)

Isles of Scilly: One person of 2,203 are centenarians (0.045pc)

Malvern Hills: 32 people of 74,631 are centenarians (0.043pc)

The lowest concentrations:

Central Bedfordshire:19 people of 25,4381 are centenarians (0.007pc)

Newham: 23 people of 30,7984 are centenarians (0.007pc)

South Derbyshire: seven people of 94,611 are centenarians (0.007pc)

Stockton-on-Tees: 14 people of 191,610 are centenarians (0.007pc)

Southwark: 21 people of 288,283 are centenarians (0.007pc)

Tower Hamlets: 18 people of 254,096 are centenarians (0.007pc)

Merthyr Tydfil: four people of 58,802 are centenarians (0.007pc)

Corby: four people of 61,255 are centenarians (0.007pc)

Tamworth: four people of 76,813 are centenarians (0.005pc)

City of London: no centenarians among 7,375 people (0pc)

Some great anvils to the SE, over the open sea at the moment. The wind direction here means they are staying offshore.

I guess the warning, posted by MK above, is because the wind direction will change later and bring them onshore. Could be an interesting night for those near the coast (and a little way inland) then; I'm guessing there must have already been heavy showers earlier this morning in South Kent, Sussex etc. due to the winds being onshore?

Substantial shower when I woke up around 5.30 this morning and I did contemplate turning over and calling in with a sicky!! As i never have, I couldn't bare the guilt of being in bed all day feigning illness.....

The main chances of thunderstorm activity are for this morning in the SE I think.

A few miles further West is the place to be (but not to many wrinklies please)

After a lull for an hour this morning (and a few minutes of actual sunshine) it has just started to pour down again. Still could be worse, could be this time tomorrow.....
