Re: 2018 - An exceptional (ongoing) summer for the UK

Thanks for clearing that up Mapantz. It did appear out of character. Most of our weather is driven by the jet stream and for a couple of months now that has taken an unusual turn with severe kinks over SW Europe causing poor weather in that part of the world back in May when the sun just kept shinin...

Re: 2018 - An exceptional (ongoing) summer for the UK

I wasn't making a direct comparison. Some parts of the media are doing that. I'd be interested to see the source of your data you use for comparisons. My solar panels have smashed records for May, June and almost certainly, July. My June average is 3.3C above average and July 3.5C above average. Rai...

2018 - An exceptional (ongoing) summer for the UK

The summer of 2018 in the UK is now being compared to that of 1976 which for those of a certain age represents the 'ultimate' summer. I consider a reasonable summer's day to be one where the temp reaches the magical 70F mark. That's 21C. Here is a query from my Access database showing the count of 2...

Re: New Record? Post here.

This station's all-time driest period ended on 12 July with 26 days of no measurable precipitation. Beat the previous record set back in 2011.

Re: New Record? Post here.

Paul, yes, rare times indeed. The green and pleasant land is not so green these days. Somewhat different to the usual description of an English summer - three fine days followed by a thunderstorm. There is rain about 20 miles south but only localised. WE may get some but probably not. Only 8.5hrs to...

Re: New Record? Post here.

Record was out by one day after a power cut messed the PC up. Seven year record broken for longest all-time dry spell. It seems unlikely it will rain today so I'll be back again tomorrow... :D

Ditto! But in a perverse sort of way I do get excited when the possibility of a new record is about to be broken. :D

Indeed it has but the temperature will be somewhat lower. Then again, at this time of year you can read a book outdoors at 11pm. :D

After Orkney that must come as quite a contrast. :D

Re: Where's Steve 2.0

Nice to hear you have a fixed base again Steve. :) I trust you will be setting up a weather station soon. Would you like some of our sunshine? Haven't seen a cloud for days. For Cheshire that is most unusual!

Take care and my best to Mrs Steve. :)

Re: Lowest Monthly Rainfall record desired on website

I'm revisiting this discussion from last year as it's very likely that not only will the June low rainfall record be broken but the all-time monthly one too. Am I right in assuming the all-time record light will not flash as there is no all-time low rainfall record flag set in the core Cumulus progr...
