Same to you JayG - I was thinking the same thing about the weather, after reading some of the long-range forecasts  :ohmy:

Clear skies above and damp on the ground. Sad lack of frost so far this autumn/early winter so it's not drying at ground level.

It has been grey but milder the last couple of days so I've managed a few hours each day on the plot. Light rain started about 3.15pm and brought me home, the start of more to come according to the forecast.

Just below freezing overnight and still feeling very cold at 2C, grey and miserable looking, with it.

Should be getting milder now for the next 10 days.

Then possibly much colder from about the 20th, with an Arctic blast because of the split in the polar vortex? Have to wait and see, of course, but that's what the weather models are predicting at the moment  :ohmy:

Say what  :ohmy:  That sounds a bit drastic, along the lines of 'The engines canna take any more Captain' in Star Trek   :lol:

Vortexes aside, this morning's plan of getting some pruning done in the front garden have been abandoned as after 10 minutes, I couldn't feel my hands or feet any more and then it started hailing.  Time to wimp out and get back indoors  :ohmy:

Its leaden skies, cold and generally grey here today.

It's slowly getting colder here as well. Now it is  -1C but everything is still damp from some sleety rain. Ice beginning to form on the birds' water, though.
Stay safe on the roads today, everyone, I don't think I'll be going out.

We had a spell of proper big snow yesterday, late on in the afternoon.  Luckily it stopped after an hour and it was too wet for it to stick to the roads, but the roofs and gardens are covered here.  No sign of it melting this morning yet.  It is too cold for that.
Title: Re: What's the weather like where you are? - 2019
Post by: John on January 23, 2019, 11:13
Bit of snow but melting quite quickly. Just over 2 and patches of blue in the sky - even the odd bit of sunshine!

A symphony of windscreen scraping up and down my road at around 8 this morning told me the temperature had probably fallen to below zero (-1.4C actually.) How I love being retired sometimes!  :)

No snow at all here, and clear blue skies - not quite sure whether it's lovely enough to go out as the temperature is still hovering around zero.  :unsure:

2C, feel factor -3C.   Last night -4C for real.   Bitterly cold north wind, too cold to stay in Town.   Its the lazy wind, you know, the one where it is so lazy it doesn't go round you, it just blasts straight through you.   Mrs Bouquet

Lay listening to the wind and worrying until 3:30 am when I just had to take the torch and check. Not that I could have done anything, but all looked OK. Fell asleep around 5:00 am - looks to be still OK and it's slightly calmer although anything not fixed has been flying around.
Still pretty windy out there but it's supposed to calm down this afternoon.  Fingers crossed!

Through the window, it looks like March here  :) In reality it is 6C, bright, bit of blue sometimes, but with strong gusts from the North howling down the chimney.
Thankfully the greenhouses are protected from the wind when it blows that way.

Apparently -6 overnight. No the frost hasn't lifted where the sun hasn't been on the ground very much. Paths in shady areas still frosty. Apparently there's a fair chance of some snow, snow and sleet, snow showers overnight. More likely to be out on the hills inland. We shall see.

Just heavy rain and wind here, was supposed to hit us at 4 pm.  Hovercraft cancelled at 2pm and we have had warnings from the car ferries of delays all day due to          'adverse weather'.  Not happening at the moment but we've got used to the car ferry  cancellations which are usually 'technical difficulties''

Cold with a dusting - icing sugar type - will melt if the sun comes out. It's a touch warmer than yesterday. But the ground is so cold that stuff hangs about - the frost hasn't lifted properly for days.

Warmer than yesterday (that was bleak with the windchill), but a couple of inches of snow and more coming down.  School in this village is open, but the smaller one in the next is closed, as is the big secondary in Chippy!  No kids out on the sledging field yet .... :)  The ponies are definitely unimpressed.

Just sleety rain here all night and on and off all day, one of the benefits (apparently) of being surrounded by water.   Paul went to work this morning and said that the further west he went on the Island the worse the snow conditions got.   Still sleety now but the wind is still high but the sea is actually quite calm.

Actually raining quite heavily here at the moment - thought it had forgotten how.

No wind yet, but when Freda arrives I daresay I'll be listening out for the sound of wheelie bins being blown over and wondering whether it's one or all 3 of mine (yet to come up with a foolproof way of securing both the lids and the bins - filling them with concrete and superglueing the lids shut is the ultimate plan but would have one or two drawbacks... :wacko:)

Just came in from the potting shed (I improved the lighting so can pot up at night now) - the wind is howling and horizontal rain battering the windows. And as I wrote that I realised I've left the heater turned up so I've got to go back out! Argghhhh!

Freya was a relatively tame little beast here (despite getting her name wrong!)

The weather front did deliver 5mm of rain yesterday, which is an absolute deluge compared to recent weeks.  :)

Still quite windy here but very bright at the moment.

There was a deluge here at 1am which woke me up, hammering on windows and gutters overflowing  ::) the wind never amounted to much, really, as the highest gust was 30mph.
The temperature dropped as the storm passed and it's now 6C, the sky is a lighter grey than yesterday and there's a light breeze.

Dodged the rain and hail today to nip to the plot to survey the damage from last night's wind. My plot was fine (it's well sheltered) but I spent quarter of an hour finding the polycarbonate panels from my friend's greenhouse and putting them back in for him. He's buying the drinks on Wednesday ;)

Woken up to a lovely morning.  The wind has gone and the sun is shining.  Makes us wonder why we scurried around yesterday in the drizzle to get outside jobs done as we had believed the forecast that today was going to be even worse.  Mind you, that is the position at the moment, it could all change in the blink of an eye! :D

Unsurprisingly I also woke up to the same, but it is beginning to cloud over again now, and the breeze has strengthened :(  It's only 8C so still got 2 woollies on  :(

Dry, breezy and cold - but rain is promised later. I suggested we sell up and move to somewhere warm and dry but Val is dead set against living in the sahara. My pal in Norway says it's -3 and snowing so some have it worse.

Lovely day here in Oxford, too, and forecast to continue all week  -  so, wouldn't you know it, it's when we're booked to go off to Fuerteventura for 9 days (Where they're talking about rain!).  After pottering in the garden at home most of the day I dropped in at the allotment around 5pm, just to check everything was snug - in my foolhardy way I already have tender stuff in the greenhouses, and salads in high-level trays. And I was stunned to discover that dahlias are starting to show through!

I have around 2 dozen dahlia plants at the allotments, and my practice for the past several years has been to leave them in the ground over-winter, heavily mulched with whatever comes to hand. Last autumn it so happened that the council delivered us 3 big trailers-full of their park compost, and each of my dahlias had about a barrow-full tipped onto it. So the top of the mound of mulch would be around 10 inches higher than ground level.....   And 5 or 6 of the mounds have small dahlia shoots showing through!

I'm flabbergasted. I'm guessing it must be to do with th very warm weather we had for most of February. Last year, after the Beast from the East, they didn't start showing through til late June, and I lost 6 or 7 of my favourites. Frost is forecast for the Oxford area tonight, but I shall have to be off for an early flight, so no opportunity to do anything about the situation, though I did wedge 5-litre water bottles with their bottoms cut off into the compost around the revealed shoots.

It's in the hands of the gods  -  I shall just have to try not to fret about it all while away, and be interested to find whatever I find when i return on Thursday 4 April. At least I won't now have to negotiate Brexit while I'm away....

About 10C which isn't too bad as there is hardly any wind. Generally grey, odd minutes of sunshine breaking through. It's beginning to dry out which is good as the son-in-law is mowing the field for me :) I think he prefers it to being made to go shopping!

Really mild, not particularly sunny but enough to get me outside.   Front garden weeded, forked over (so it looks nice) and the lawn mown.  Highest cut possible as this lawn is in the shade, lower cut next week when it has had a chance to dry out a bit.   My front lawn is better than the back lawn which is only moss really as it is on a slope down towards the house.

Poured down last night - which wasn't a bad thing as I'd already had to water some beds. Today has been very April - except for two hailstorms. The second one really hammered down, trapping me in the potting shed - so near yet so far from a desperately needed cup of tea!

Rather warm with a hazy sky with a little cooling breeze. Left the g-house with its missing opening window ajar overnight and by 10am it was 32 degrees inside. Mini g-house plants doing fine and managed to plant my climbing French bean in its gro-bag pot inserted at one end of the g-h bed. Just trying to summon up the energy to transplant some brassicas, courgettes and a couple of other things but methinks I'll cool off inside then have another go.

Lovely and warm, about 17c.  Sky not blue, but hazy white.  Nice breeze.   Did go into garden at 12.30am last night, as there was a very clear sky and moon.   Put the plants back in the greenhouse.(I forgot  :D)

I've got a Pop-Up at a local pub tomorrow, luckily in shade, then it should be getting cooler and showery for rest of the week, which is why I sowed 2 rows of parsnips. Nice and warm and showers to keep them moist!

The sea mist rolled in about 3pm today and now we can't even see the other end of the garden, consequently it feels rather cold and damp.  Looking out the front window I can see that others, like us, have lights on.  Funnily enough the heating hasn't cut in (set to come on at 17 degrees).

It's been quite gusty today, enough to stop me going to get the paper - but we've had no more than a quick shower, which hardly collected in the buckets/saucers - so some more rain would certainly help here.
There is some in tonight's forecast (23% chance according to the BBC, 60% according to MetO  ::) ) so fingers crossed !

It was a pleasant change to wake up this morning to see some blue in the sky and the trees not dancing round like some demented music conductor.
However, when I got down to the plot to survey the damage I was not so pleased. The broadies have taken a real battering, with some stems torn from the plants.

Oh John, what an awful thing to happen just when you've got a new g-house!  :( As we live a mile from the coast the winds can really rip around here, but the only thing that's recently happened to my rather sturdy one is a missing opening window that blew off last year, plus the original concrete foundations have somewhat sunk over the years which in winter creates a nice paddling pool as you enter! I wish I could help to supply you with more plants, but then you're not one to give up are you!  ;) Today the weather is quite nice and warm and there's not a lot of breeze but the sky is looking a bit overcast.

Now it's 10C and wet, that gentle drizzle that soaks you just wandering the 25ft to the greenhouse, and it looks set for the day. We really do need the rain though, so I'm not complaining - honest  :nowink:

Like most people I  plan my work depending on weather but the number of times recently, we have forecasts that have been wildly off but also useless - one from the Met office recently "The following month will have dry periods interspersed with rain, some cloud and in between the sun will shine"

David Kings WeatherWithoutTechnology is very accurate but mainly for the SE of England.

Yes that's the sort of thing. Quite often you want a general indication that we are going into a wet / dry period  and you can make plans accordingly.

Then back this up with a BBC forecast. However, since the BBC moved away from the Met Office service the forecasts haven't been accurate even two days in advance.

It is quite noteworthy how accurate the amateur weather forecasters are just based on historical patterns and observing nature.

thanks again

In unsettled conditions it can be helpful in the short term to know how long you've got before rain arrives - there are several different websites available but I find this one easy to use (click the 'Anim On' button to see the track of the rain in almost real time.):

I don't believe it! Got the grass edges strimmed and went off to get petrol as the mower was empty. Beautiful sunshine and blue skies. Came back from the garage, got the mower running and the skies went black - it's pouring down now.
Nothing in the BBC or Met Office predicted  :mad: :mad: :mad:
Polytunnel when it eases off, for me.

Last night I put the plastic cover over my mini g-house and shut the doors because it was so cold. Today it started out the same temps, then this afternoon I had to remove the cover, do quite a lot of watering then leave the doors open because it got rather hot in there.  :blush:

Down to 5C last night in the greenhouse, despite the forecast for 8-9C  >:( still the toms were ok and I had brought the peppers back inside.
12C outside now with grey skies, we're in for another soaking by the look of things....at least that'll help with the greenfly overload  ::)

We've still got our CH on for periods - it's an old house and stone walls lose heat. But they're cool in a heatwave!

That very fine rain (that makes you wetter than the big blobs) until about 10am and then sunshine.  I really wanted to cut the front lawn but again it was too damp and would have 'mangled' rather than mown.  So   many different forecasts for the weekend, ranging from a heatwave to thunderstorms, I don't know who to believe.  It is very muggy so I expect the latter.

Some welcome rain yesterday here  as we have had so little rain, well just a few drizzly days since the last rain (7mm) on 8th May.

Yesterday went like this;
24 mm of rain from 6am til 11 am yesterday and a lovely sunny spell for the afternoon.
It then rained again from 4-6 pm and 9 pm to midnight, making a total of 34 mm yesterday.
It was then dry for a few of the early hours, but the rain and wind picked up at 3-5 pm, 3.4 mm, WSW winds of 15-23 mph and a handful of gusts 32-37 mph.

It is dry now and brightening up, wind has dropped to a breeze and looking to be dry for the rest of the weekend.

Been picking up plenty of slugs and snails this morning (rain bringing them out) from around the runner/broad/french beans, peas, potatoes and sweetcorn, but luckily all the plants are well on their way and their nibbling has not made any difference. 
With the the dry weather we have had lately, I was thinking they had moved on elsewhere.
Have a bucket load of them now making nematodes for next years crop.

A welcome 8mm of rain yesterday, and a little bit more this morning - pretty windy though, gusting up to 32mph, which is a bit of a challenge for my young bean and sweetcorn plants to cope with after only about a week in the great outdoors.  :unsure:

Only 13C, so feeling pretty chilly too.

Minimum of 10C overnight and thundery, but it's warming up now 14C. Was sunny first thing but clouds coming and going now, but at least we've lost the heavy rain warnings from the forecast thank goodness.
Hopefully I can get to the plot later to check if there's any damage.

Thunderstorm started while I was on the plots. Spent a while tidying the shed hoping it would ease off, but it didn't. By the time I headed home the water on the footpath was up to my ankles - so don't think anything will need watering for a while  :dry:

Watering = done (on automatic).. Just need the heat lamp back as nights not encouraging growth although the weeds seem happy (as usual).

Dry at the moment - not due to last even though the sun is pushing through... rain later.

(Sounds like the shipping forecast - visibility.. Where's my glasses?)

We had plans (don't we all). Nothing much in the garden to day but the garage is full to bursting and needs a thorough seeing to.... on hold until a whole day of dry is forecast.

It was a nice morning but I had other things to do than gardening.  Then a couple of hours in the allotment shop this afternoon, followed by ambitious (!) plans to plant out my sweetcorn after having re-weeded the bed.

As soon as I got to the plot, the heavens opened  :mad:  As I wasn't minded to get thoroughly soaked for the second time in two days (the difficulties of showing people around plots !), cue lots of hiding in the greenhouse with rain thundering down, and taking the opportunity to tie up the tomatoes and remove all those side shoots that are now big enough to challenge the main stem  ::) :ohmy:

Remember the song from Grease called "Stranded at the drive in"?  Well, I now have my own version:

"Trapped in the greenhouse"   :lol:

It was a bit grey all morning here yesterday.  I made it to the plot for lunchtime(ish) and got caught with a couple of heavy showers that had us all running for the big yew tree by the gate.  It is obligingly spreading enough to act as an umbrella for several soggy allotmenteers  :lol:

Most packed up and went home, but I carried on weeding, the sun came out and it turned out to be a lovely afternoon.  Finally tore myself away about 5.30, when I realised the time and remembered we were meeting friends later, so needed to get home and de-grub.

Rooting around weeding in damp, lovely smelling soil with the warmth of the sun of your back is the perfect way to unwind in my book  :D  Today we already have the rain, but if it clears up a bit, I'm off for another weeding session.

Compared to yesterday which was glorious sunshine, today has been overcast.  We've just got in from going to the local tip and it feels very muggy and there's not a bird noise to be heard.  It's also very still and there is a 'damp' feel to the air.  Not looking forward to the next 24 hours at all although on the news this morning it did seem to miss us.

Today was scorchio - just boiling. Around 30 in the shade and precious little shade. Bit of a disaster day as one of the cherry trees looks like someone set about it with a baseball bat.

It's around 24 degrees outside in the shade - not too bad in the sun as there's a fair breeze coming in from the sea. Sunburn risk though - high UV but you don't feel too hot in the breeze. Greenhouse and polytunnel well watered so we should be OK.

A mere 22C here at the moment - a bit overcast but the showers have all missed here so far...

The advantage of having an old stone house is that it is cool in a heatwave and by the time the heatwave is passed the warmth is just about reaching inside! :)

I got blown, in not quite a straight line, across the road this morning, but luckily I'd chosen a big gap in the traffic before I stepped off the kerb  :lol:

Some dead branches blown down along the footpath, though. No sign of it easing off just yet. Roses and Dahlias flowers trashed in the garden :(

It's been raining stair rods here all day. The powers that be pumped out 7000 gallons of flood water next to the pub by the railway station over the other side of the river bridge yesterday and the dip has filled up again today. All the usual places have the usual amount of escapee water from the river or where the drains don't work properly. Be fun to see if any buses get out of the village tomorrow - get in they can but unless someone drains the road further along towards Newcastle it will be boating only.

We've been to the Garlic Festival today where if you were in a sheltered spot it was lovely, down the aisles between the stalls it was really windy, and a cold wind at that!  Warning, there is a new garlic available, their hottest one yet!  I forget the name in detail at the moment, begins with an 'L', Laugberg, of something similar. They were also pushing the 'black garlic' which is heat treated over time and is recommended to be added to sweet things.  I didn't try the black garlic ice cream or beer!  :D

Lovely looking day today - bright sunshine for the most part but a cold wind and it was gusty. Not good on my eye (had a cataract done Tuesday). Took refuge in the polytunnel but some pollen in there was making my eyes itch and rubbing is not recommended. Gave in and returned indoors.
Garlic ice cream.. sounds interesting Wighty! :)

It was down to 8.5C in the greenhouse last night, heavy dew outside and 14C now. It looks like it will be a lovely day - but there's loads of condensation in the greenhouse to dry off when the sun gets to it.
Don't think the peppers are liking that much, and time to strip all the bottom foliage of the tom plants.

Gah, COLD.
Last night it went from a bit nippy to waking up BALTIC and making hot water bottles at 12:30 am.
The boiler is in our room and sounds like a pile driver so we can't have it on at night or we don't sleep.

The kids were cosy and warm in their room. They have children sleeping bags, blankets on their bed shelves in case they want them and a duvet. So they were so ridiculously cosy and kicking the covers off.

Me + boiler induced no sleep = dozy zombie murder bear. Like that-> >:(  :mad: all day. I also drop, knock over burn, destroy hurt and swear at all the things.

Every time you doze off RANNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN. RUMBLE RUMBLE

WHOOSH

RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN RAAANNNNNN.

I hate that * thing. Seriously there's a downstairs cupboard and the entire kitchen, why would you risk murder and monoxide poisoning by having it in the bedroom? Also it's far away from the kitchen where most of the hot water will be wanted. So you waste hot water by running it to the opposite end of the entire house. It loses heat in that distance and when you stop there's the entire pipe sitting going cold full of unused water. Also it often forgets what it's doing or gets bored and switches off. usually when you stop watching the tap so you end up with a sink of cold water.

So Today it is a good day to dry. Three loads out

Rained for 3 days stopping briefly yesterday. It only stopped because I put the dryer and then it cleared up to fool me into putting the laundry out. 30 minutes, just beginning to relax before it sneak attack deluged. Gorgeous out the back where I was in the kitchen. Then it struck. Husband said the front of the house was shaking with the wind and rain as it suddenly went black at the front window. While being gloriously sunny and bright out the back window.

It's just having a break up here. Blue sky and sun this morning but it's going downhill again from the looks of it out there. Supposed to rain overnight then we might get some dry days .... Might.

Yesterday we had HAIL  :ohmy:. It wasn't freezing here but it was close to 0C last night. The bridges are out further north.

Today everywhere else in BBC Radio Scotland land seems to be lovely (blue skies) but it's really windy and there's showers blowing through. Still put the washing out, the wind is blowing more out than the showers are putting in.I maybe being a prat, but it's working and I have Gale force proof pegs.

It was down to 8C in the greenhouse last night, the vine has started dropping its leaves.
A lovely bright day but there's a really cold northwesterly wind, 25C inside the greenhouse in the lee of the hedge, though, which is where I've just had my afternoon cuppa  :D

It is very grey today with lots of heavy cloud.   My heating has been on a bit, but I have just switch the de-humidifier on.   Lots of condensation on the glass.  Probably a combination of airing the washing on the rads, and everywhere being so damp.   Two very big spiders in here last night, so it must be getting colder.   Mrs B

Light harr (sea fog) or normal fog. Hopefully it'll clear up and be lovely like it was yesterday.
By light Harr I mean I can see to the end of the street. Harr means you can't see to the end of the porch.

Being me, here's my laundry comment, lucky I took the laundry in rather than leaving the damp items out.

The weatherman claims it is sunny, the radar shows no rain but it's grey and drizzling on and off! And the outdoor thermometer isn't correct at 3.1 - I reckon it's around 8

Been raining heavily and continuously since 0200 this morning - 36mm so far (inch and a half) and it's not done with yet.  :(

Now two and a half inches (63mm) and still raining heavily - not national news of course but many here are remembering the floods of 2007.  :nowink:

Thanks John - not facing any obvious risk where I live, but with today's total now at 3" and still raining some people in this area are bound to have problems.

Here it is grey and very Novemberish.  I had to scrape the car when I got out of work yesterday night and it was a thin coat of ice on the windows, not frost  :ohmy:

Unusual online weather forecast today in that every hour from last midnight to midnight tonight is forecast to be 8C - so far that is the case.

Not so accurate is the rain prediction - much less than forecast, although it's managing to be equally unpleasant out there thanks to thick mist all afternoon.  8)

It was absolutely wild last night, hail and howling winds which woke us up several times. We were out several times checking on the garden because of things banging around. Also to get some of the washing in at 2am-duvet cover and blankets, we left the smaller items outside. It was freezing but clear and relatively calm when we went to bed so I daftly thought it'd be fine.

Hooray for storm force pegs, worth every penny. We've never lost a single item, and that's from and including every winter storm since Storm Frank!

Glad your okay John and I hope everyone else is fine?

absolutely terrible. rain rain and rain Justas it was drying up even had one day down the allotments but today its back to winter we stood waiting for the bus this morning and it was raining and the bus was fifteen minuets late and the bus heater had packed up  :mad:

so it was a b------dy cold 45 minuets ride then the bus terminated about 15 minuets walk from the shopping centre because the drivers changed over and the next driver refused to drive the bus without a heater but never told us so we sat there like melons till another passenger said are we stopping here yes the driver said I'm waiting for someone to come and fix it  >:(

so we all got of the bus and made  our way to town in the rain both the wife and me where very cold but got warm going  into Wiko but after a bit of shopping we got the bus home and the heater was working ok on that one

There's a word for drivers like that, Rowland, but we don't use that word on the forums!

It's rained here but not as heavily as the other day. The ground is saturated and water was coming out in a stream from the bottom of the retaining wall at the back of the house.

Grey and 4C it's been the same temperature all night, as well - perhaps the station's gauge is stuck  :D

We've got thunder and lightening tonight  :ohmy:
Quite wet and windy out there too. It's about 2 degrees at the moment and we may have a bit of snow later apparently.

It's been OK here although the river has been up and down like a yo-yo over the last few weeks.  As soon as the council clear the cycle paths after the river has gone down, back it is again!

Same old grey and damp today - but at least it's a tad calmer and milder :) I'm off to get the bus to go shopping, but I'm bound to get soaked at some point. Seems a recurring theme lately  :nowink:

We had really thick fog overnight, but that lifted quickly this morning. Another cold but bright day today, but as Roland said, rain expected late afternoon right through to tomorrow.

Bright and mild today, went for a walk down the country lanes with the sprog and marvelled at just how much water was running off the farmer's fields after all the rain we've had!

The sun has gone back to bed, and it is dead flat calm, and feeling colder.   I don't remember it being so still for a long time.  I hope it is not the lull before the storm  :ohmy:

Just been to Sandown for a walk along the beach but it was so windy that it was blowing the sand in our faces, so did some emergency shopping (bread) and came back home . Just in time as it is now drizzling.

Um, sorry John we didn't. Couldn't really see what was in front of  us as we were having to look sideways otherwise you would have been 'sandblasted'.  Next time we go down we'll have a look for you but don't get too hopeful after all this time.  :D
