Hello all, 😀
As we all know, the UK is currently in a heatwave (July 27th). It is remarkable so far for not only its strength of the heat but the duration of the heatwave too (Since around June 19th to July 27th (Current),). The media is reporting interviews from UK meteorologists, asking why we are currently in a heatwave, with many answering that it is due to the jet stream marandering North to the UK, thus allowing hot air from a situated high-pressure system over Central Europe to divert up North towards the UK.
That's all fine and dandy, but I ask "Why is the Jetstream maraundering North and why is it currently so weak?" 🤔
So, what do you guys think?
Why are we experiencing such a strong heatwave? As in, what weather drivers are causing it to happen in the first place?
Let's get this discussion going! 😁
I own a Hama EWS-180 temperature meter which has a wireless sensor to measure the outside temperature. The only place I could place it was outside on the grass and today someone mowned the lawn and along with it the sensor :/ I've searched but couldn't find a replacement sensor to buy, so do you have any ideas where can I buy one?
I’m looking at buy a new weather station, I had a Oregon WMR 100 which was very hit and miss and eventually died but I’m looking for something far more reliable and accurate that I can upload all the data to my Mac or PC . I have been toying with either the Davis Vantage cue or Pro 2 , most posting I read suggest those that bought the Vue wish they had the Pro 2 but both seem very good . Any help or advice that can help with my decision pros or cons

A retired police constable turned climatologist claims snow will fall all over the UK this winter! I talk about this in more detail on my blog here but thought I would put it in general discussion as well
The Met Office have already spoken up and said that he doesn't use a scientific way of forecasting and that winter will be cold, it's winter. Ha.
Anyway he goes onto say that Christmas day will be snowy for the north but no luck for the south. Apparently though the south of UK will see large amounts of snow into the new year and temperatures will drop into 5-. He says he is hardly ever wrong so who knows, we might be in for some luck here in the UK.
I personally can only remember one year that we had amazing snow here in the south of the UK. It was great. Either way fingers crossed.

I've got a maplin weather station. I have had it for about 6-7 years now. Weirdly it hasn't stopped working. It's still going strong but I want something that might provide better data and possibly quick data intervals as well.
I know about the Davis stations but they are a little out of my price range. Does anything have any suggestions that are good quality but still fit within a budget?
