Re: UK Storm Fionn impact

Northerners always have more impressive curves! :D

Wind is picking up here now but nothing over 30mph yet. But pressure drop continues to impress. 3.79hPa/hr now. It's tempting to stay up and watch it but I probably won't.

Re: UK Storm Fionn impact

Looks nasty for 0100-0500 for this neck of the woods. I'd be surprised if we get snow here but the Pennines will suffer as usual.

Pressure now dropping at 3.74hPa/hr. Must be a record.

Re: UK Storm Fionn impact

This is not storm Fionn, Ray. This is where the naming system creates so much confusion. Storm Fionn was a small kink in the isobars that delivered gusts in excess of 70mph across Northern Ireland yesterday, so Met Eireann named it. The Met Office didn't name tonight's system, neither did Met Eirea...

Lowest Pressure (sl) 968.98 hPa at 05:33 on 20 November 2016


Cheshire. It's in my location. ;) I'm not talking about lowest pressure. I'm talking about greatest drop (or rise) in pressure in one hour.

Re: UK Storm Fionn impact

But interestingly winds have dropped off slowly all day. I suspect they'll increase significantly as the low moves to the east overnight.

Pressure now falling 3.22hPa /hr. Pity Cumulus doesn't keep these records. This is a big one.

UPDATE: Now dropping at 3.56hPa/hr.

UK Storm Fionn impact

A band of heavy rain has now moved into NW England but what is really noticeable is the big drop in pressure. Currently falling very rapidly at 2.88hPa / hr.

Re: Running both v1 and MX

Ray, since you are running Weatherlink as well, do you have weatherlink.com 2.0? the recently introduced Davis free page https://www.weatherlink.com/bulletin/a3a3c5e7-b8bd-4910-ba3a-f6ad6e1f09d1 My data is stale as I don't run Weatherlink regularly but would like to if I could run VirtualVP reliabl...

Re: Running both v1 and MX

I must be one of the few still running VirtualVP on an XP laptop. I have thought about installing MX but I just like Cumulus 1. I also run WeatherLink. Not sure why really. Just habit. I'll have some serious thinking to do when the laptop eventually dies but it's still performing admirably after nea...

Nice one Paul! I left a simple note. :) I seconded your excellent request for mixing of imperial / metric. Just one point. You might want to remove your email address. The bots will soon pick it up and bombard you. ;) It's OK with that email address, as it's my website email and not my main email. ...

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

After I posted last night WU started showing my station and its data on WU Map. The graphs work on the main WU interface and the current data is also showing. It wasn't yesterday. I think if you're patient Phil things will come back. They obviously have some serious hardware issues but it looks like...

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

Bizarre. My own station ISTOCKPO4 is no longer visible on WU but Cumulus is not reporting any problems.

WU is reporting my station lat/Lon is 0/0. I’ll just wait for them to sort things out. Strange how different stations are having different problems.
