A lovely sunny walk this morning. Feeling quite fresh at 5c.

No frost but drying out in mid winter sunshine which is something to be thankful for.

Back from a wonderful trip to see my brother in Costa Rica 🇨🇷 

was hoping after three weeks away for something more wintery on our return...maybe late January into February might prevail with something colder with something drier sunnier and more seasonal...  

hopefully a big pattern change ahead and our Aussie friends can get relief from the fires too...

The Squall Lines just hitting where I live now, absolutely insane horizontal rain, and I can feel the house shaking from the impact of the wind 😧

 

EDIT: Whelp, that was interesting, rain was moving horizontal right -> left in-front of the lamp post, then there was a roar and it reversed directions for about 10/15 seconds or so, and now it's calmed down (for a given value of calm 😛 ) and gone back to right -> left.  Saw a bin getting blown up the road during it too xD xD

Just 8 hours of sunshine here in the frst half of January. If the second half is equally cloudy it would end as the dullest month on record ( since 2000)

Just waiting for one of my customers systems operating on battery, charged by solar panels to tell me their system is not working.

Forecast says this weekend and Monday will be sunny, so fingers crossed no callouts.

Incoming cold west/NW air sleet snow on the radar wales.

There's a possibility the all time record high air pressure record could be broken here in the next few days. The current record ( since 1963)  is 1047.9 hPa on the 26th/27th January 1992. A look at the latest fax chart indicates something a little over 1048 hPa is possible by early Monday morning.

The first sleet of the month early this afternoon! At least it won't be the first entirely snow/sleet free January on record, the record for the least snowy January is held by 1989 which recorded just one day with sleet falling, quite remarkable at this altitude in the Peak District.

It is very unusual for the Peaks not to have had a good few CM by this stage of Winter. I always relay on the half hour ride to find snow but this year it hasn't happened. Ironic as I will be moving to a snow desert later in the year (Nantwich).
