Title: What's the weather like where you are? - 2021
Post by: JayG on January 01, 2021, 10:49
Dull, cold but not icy and freezing thank goodness.

We had a cold night and a frost again.  Now it is pretty grey and not warming up that much.  It did have a feeble attempt at snowing earlier on, but it was not even enough to call it snizzle (the snow equivalent of drizzle)  :lol:

We only had a bit of frost yesterday on the cars, but it was pretty grey all day.  Milder shade of grey today and that is about the best I can say for it.

Still dull - less cold  ::)

Temp dipped just below zero overnight in the greenhouse and 2C outside now, with some pale blue patches in the sky. Dead calm.

It froze, it snowed, it froze, it sort of thawed then it rained overnight and now. We have a thick layer of black ice. Glad to be housebound.

Currently 33 degrees Fahrenheit or 1 degree Celsius. Cloudy, gray, depressing, but most of the snow melted from the New Years ice storm. I might go outside for a walk soon, though. It actually has been a pretty reasonable winter so far.

Heavy grey sky and it only stopped raining for a few minutes while I was eating lunch  ::)
I was hoping to get a walk round the block, at least, without getting soaked like I did yesterday  :(

We are promised sun this afternoon, but it doesnt look that hopeful at the moment.

Post by: John on January 06, 2021, 23:59
It's already -3.6C out there, and falling. Fire loaded up to go down slowly tonight and the central heating set to come on for an hour at 3am. Very think insulation in the loft is good but the thick solid stone walls are not efficient insulation. Oh for a cavity wall with insulation. Still, we got through -15C in 2010 so this should be a doddle.

Hope you're not frozen in John  :ohmy:
Here, it is just above freezing so could open the greenhouse doors :) Low was -0.3C and outside now it is +0.3C  ::)
Forecast is for it to stay much the same, but the nice Meridian weather lady did promise me some sunshine today  ::)  :nowink: we'll see .....

Cold, wet and miserable here too.  The sky went really dark earlier this afternoon and we thought 'here we go' but nothing happened (fortunately).   We've had big blobs, drizzle and everything in between.  The roofers are supposedly working for us tomorrow but how they can remove tiles from the gully and then re-lead and replace the tiles remains to be seen.

We had snow overnight, but as the temperature rose to 2C it turned to rain (again) that has washed the snow away.
So at least the path is now flooded with water rather than being a sheet of ice   :lol: :lol:

Apocalyptic rain forecast and amber flood warnings for this part of the world today, but have only had 8mm so far.
BBC Look North mobilised all its resources today to report on the unfolding catastrophe, but could only report slightly elevated river levels.  ::)
For the sake of those in high risk areas, hope both they and the Met office continue to have reason to feel embarrassed over the next few days...  :wacko:

About 8C which isn't bad - RAIN! Lots of rain  :ohmy: not as bad as threatened .. yet.  The whole day on the met office forecast is heavy rain, 95% or 90% confidence level.

Same as every body else, very wet and windy.   Driving  to work this morning when we got to the coastal road we usually use u p the west of the Wight, at really exposed areas, Paul had problems to keep the van on our side of the road.   The sea was very rough but there were still some surfers still out there (silly fools).

We have got our residual white stuff from yesterday, but it is all crunchy and iced now.  It started melting yesterday afternoon, then re-froze as the light faded.

Blue sky and sunshine, but chilly at the moment.  I think the final melt will be starting soon.

Reached a whopping 22C this afternoon, mostly overcast, but with occasional sun, following rain and wind early this morning. That kind of warmth this time of year is unusual, even for here.

It was warm enough that I was able to go for an evening walk in just a T-shirt. Well, not just the shirt... I was wearing pants. And shoes...

had some snow here through the night but had to go out for the jab that was booked for  today so driving about twelve miles  to there was ok roads clear snow melted but its trying its hardest to snow since we got home so taking things easy today

I'm pleased we went down the allotments last week to cut some thick branches of the trees that where hanging over the plot with permission from the farmer of cause the wife and me trimmed all the bows to cut up for the fire then  cut up all the small branches put them in heaps  to burn come spring or when the weather warms up it took us two days to do this job but time well spent outdoors in the fresh air

anyway i got a call from the farmer who told me we had made a good job of the trees brownie points or what :lol:

The wind again is bitterly cold and we've had a few flurries of snow, but very fine and nothing to be concerned about.  Patches of the road that are prone to  collecting water or field 'run off' were a bit icy this morning.  I'm not at work tomorrow so can stay at home in the warm but on Wednesday we are expecting our second big delivery of timber (if it can get here).

We have just had a good covering of snow... Our heated greenhouse has a covering of snow this time! It is still up to temperature, as I can see the snow just starting to slide down the roof. We are expecting -5C before the week is out. That is very unusual here as we are only a few yards from the sea, which usually keeps us a bit warmer - less cold?

The wind is bitterly cold and blows straight into our workshop and poor Paul has had a lot of glass to cut today.   There were still some (I think) silly idiots out surfing at 8.30 this morning.  Still no snow apart from somebody  'up there' shaking his head and  letting his dandruff land on us.  :D

Still dry and bright but bitterly cold. So cold my wireless thermometer and rain gauge has gone mad. It isn't actually -41.1 nor have we had 124mm of rain in the last hour!
A little warmer than yesterday I guess as the potting shed didn't fall below 5C with the heater holding temp in there.

Very sunny but cold & frozen on my trip to defrost the chickens water, my neighbour told me it was -4 on her outdoor thermometer, but without the wind today it was a lot nicer on the allotment site, so much so I did 4 laps round the site.

Getting windier and the rain is getting heavier, it has been raining on and off all day. Not looking forward to the journey up the Milly tomorrow as in places it is very exposed and we have been blown across the road before  now.

Hoolie for sure overnight, now still very windy.

It was raining earlier but we have some sun now. I have to stay in to wait for a delivery, but I feel a greenhouse moment coming on. I could plant some early spuds to get going, sow some seeds and maybe rig up a climbing frame for mangetout peas :D

Another chilly, gusty morning, with threatening dark clouds  :( Low of 3C overnight in the greenhouse
I'm certainly not in any hurry to sow outside, this year, given the MetO  long-range weather forecast to the end of the month *sigh* Don't think the early spuds will be planted for St Patrick's day on Wednesday, either  ::)

Temperatures potentially much colder than average in the south, particularly the south east, where showers could be wintry for a time, but likely milder across the north. The end of the period will most likely see another period of unsettled weather, with spells of rain and some strong winds crossing all parts of the UK, interspersed with drier and brighter interludes. Temperatures are expected to be at or slightly below average for this time of year by the end of the period.

Well they got that wrong, today was supposed to be warmer than yesterday.  Can't see England, presume it's floated off somewhere.   :D The colder wind has returned and we had a few  short sharp showers.  We did notice a lot of seagulls  sitting in fields on our way home which is often a sign that bad weather out to sea is due to hit soon.  The sea was a lot rougher as well and the 'silly' surfers were out in force.

It's looking rather nice out there again :)
Bit grey but bright enough and around 13C at the moment, dry with a little breeze.
Hopefully I can catch up some more.

It's grey, 8C with a gusty, cold NE wind, so not very pleasant - especially as we were spoilt for the last couple of days *sigh*
5C overnight in the greenhouse.

Temperature has dropped off from the lovely sunny day yesterday.  Sky has turned from blue to cloudy. And the Easter forecast isn't any reason to go out places around here.

We are still in miserable grey mode, but the wind has dropped and is now from the West, so feels much nicer out there, although still only 5C atm. Overnight low in the greenhouse was 4C
Forecast is for a sunny and warmer afternoon, so hopefully I'll be on the plot then :)

Bitter cold! Currently 0⁰c in my greenhouse! We've had a bit of a frost with a very light shower of sleet that happened overnight.
Its a beautiful crisp morning with not a cloud in the bright blue sky but there's a proper icy wind that chills to the bone!

Yesterday was .. interesting..
Rain which dried up in sunshine. Snow which burnt off then more snow then hail then snow which burnt off for a fine evening close to the day!

This morning there's sunshine melting off a bit of snow, so it must have snowed in the night. It should be dry and cold today

Groundhog day yet again - slight ground frost overnight followed by sunny morning and a tendency to cloud over in the afternoon - plenty warm enough for some aerobic weeding.

Have had next to no rain here for several weeks - am going to have to deploy the hose a little earlier than usual this year, although I've got a funny feeling it was the same last year too...  :unsure:

After a freeze a couple weeks ago, we are headed back down to 2 C tonight, with a strong wind!  At least it's sunny.

Since I took the orchids outside after the (alleged) last frost date on April 15, I'll need to put a tarp on the ground, plants on the tarp, and old blankets on top of that.  Then back up to a high of 29 C next Tuesday!! ???

No rain but it kept going dark and we thought ' here it comes' but nothing.  Chilly wind that feels 'damp'.  We really do need it though.

We started with blue sky, now there are a few more grey clouds about, still got a the breeze. Now more Easterly then Northerly, but still cold.
It's 8C now and the max in the Met0 forecast is only10C  :(

Just taken all the tomato plants out to the greenhouses and the overnight low in there was only 1.3C *sob*

Not much better here Mum, grey and cool. When the sun peeps out it warms rapidly, but not for long. My toms are in the greenhouse permanently now as the temps are just staying warm enough at night. I don't want them to be spoiled little brats as most of them are going outside this year.

I'd say we've got proper March here. Raining at crack of dawn, cleared to grey, hailed on the allotment, not been warm since. The sun looked at the area and went away again.

It went in a lunchtime and now it's 9C outside and we have drizzle, better than no rain I suppose  ::)

I think you should check that - otherwise you've got no cover if the house burned down or something. Try contacting them, the worst they can do is say no.

Grey skies, around 6C, wind getting up but best of all nearly a whole millimetre of rain so far. That's a whole litre of the wet stuff per square metre. With luck, a lot more to come. Yes, it's a bank holiday!

I related that badly.  Yes I am fully insured with no limits etc.   However the insurance companies are very clever at saying well you havent maintained it.    I just cannot be bothered after the last 6 months debacle.

Some friends of ours had a huge battle with the insurance when their house burned down. The funny thing was they won each argument and ended up with over twice what they originally claimed. I think they just looked at it as their new hobby.

Meanwhile, the winds have really picked up here and we've had 28mm of rain. Things will be growing again! :)

Wet day and still raining - 10mm so far which is twice the total for the whole of April.

Fair old wind from the SW which should be a milder direction, but with the air temp only 7.6C it sure don't feel warm to me out there!  :ohmy:

We had two very short showers yesterday that really did nothing.  The wind has really picked up during today but no rain whatsoever.    It is very dark though.  Not looking forward to the drive to work tomorrow along the Milly as we always have what we call 'wobbly wheels'  when the gusts of wind catch us.  In some places we are only 8 feet away from the cliff edge.

In some places we are only 8 feet away from the cliff edge.
We took a road that looked much faster than the main road to Ronda in Spain. It was narrow and wound up the mountain with endless drops to the side.Eventually we reached the mountaintop town. I staggered from the car, shaking, into the nearest bar and downed a double brandy. We took the easy road down.

It's still very windy here and down at 5C but the greenhouses appear to have survived. We've had 56mm of rain over the last 24 hours. Expect the grass will be fair shooting up now - which will cheer the farmers who are having to supplement the pasture feed.

Just before I went to bed, I put buckets out to catch some rain - but they just ended up blown against the hedge  :nowink:
Bright, 10C and very breezy this morning (gusting at 38mph!)  so daren't risk taking the tomatoes out to the greenhouse they'd get flattened on the way  ::)

Bit more rain this morning but brightening up a little now. Still cold at 9C and a bit breezy. Really cutting wind. Can we have may weather now, please?
Last night, around 9pm, massive, heavy and low solid black clouds came over with lightening flashes. That was weird!

Showery here - not too warm at 12C either.

Been drizzling on and off all morning,  I got soaked popping up to the Co op.
Then it eased off a bit, but now we've got a full-scale thunderstorm and torrential rain, overflowing the gutters. So the footpath is flooded again  ::)

A grey, mild day 11C; after a mild, damp night, 9C overnight in the greenhouse.
More rain showers forecast for this afternoon  ::)

Really am getting fed up with this now - but there's not much change in the forecast for, at least, another couple of weeks *sigh*

Raining again by 11.30am  :(

It was a bit grey this morning and there were showers around, but I went to the plot for a quick visit.  Hid under the trees a couple of times when more showers struck, then the sun came out and we had a bonus of T-shirt weather for a couple of hours  :)

I stayed to make the most of it and did a load of planting out and weeding, then the clouds gathered again.  As I pulled onto the drive there was thunder rumbling overhead  ::)

Yup! Bright sun so I dashed to the plots to plant my tall peas, just got them in and heard a rumble in the distance. I looked up and a big black cloud was on its way - got home just as the first heavy drops started. Boy, was I lucky it was a deluge  ::) The path is flooded again but at least I didn't have to water the peas :nowink:

4C overnight in the greenhouse and only 11C in there now. Everything inside is dripping so door now open wide, but we have a wind warning from lunchtime and full-on storm force wind warning for tomorrow. So I guess the grape vine will get mildew again this year.... Maybe time to dig it out  :ohmy:

Early morning, it is 15 C now, and clear, 28 C later.

Next week could be tough, we are expecting 35 C or more on Tuesday, highs above 32 C from Sunday to Saturday, forecast chances for rain are slim.  Plans to install a shallow well for irrigation never quite materialized, I think I may regret that when I get the water bill.

The wind is really getting up now as well. I've just put the clamps on, and the wires across, the Vitavia greenhouse's double doors, and moved lightweight tubs into the lee of the hedge, so they won't blow around.
Better safe than sorry  ::)

I think the local wind force measure has broken, as it's saying no wind or gusts  :lol: Met office interactive is showing gusts about 48mph.
Low of 8c overnight and 10C now, I daren't open the greenhouse to check the inside low  temp though  :ohmy:
Good luck everybody, stay safe.

Beautiful hot suns today but with a breeze to cool you & trick you into forgetting to use the sun tan lotion! Yesterday I was in the pool with the grandchildren in their garden (it is heated & 2ft deep- 5yr old granddaughter told me we were having a pool party lol)

Saturday was glorious, Son and wife, and grandchildren put on their wet suits and said the sea was lovely, I sat and watched !     Yesterday was the same, sat on the greensward beside the beach and played a variety of bat and ball games.  Today, it is hotter still, but they have gone now, all the washing is getting dry quickly.  But still the wind is coming from the NE.

Can people visiting not only  pick up their rubbish but also learn to drive!  Five times on our way home we have been cut up/ had     people jump lights/drive at under the speed limit.  I mean 20mph down a 50mph road!  Visit the Island by all means but behave yourselves, roll on September when you leave us alone again.

We've had some rain, which is good as I was thinking of watering. Grey skies but the clouds should burn off this afternoon and it's a lot cooler. Not so good for sitting out on the patio but better for working outside.

We've had a few days of wonderful dry heat, but that changed yesterday when we had a brief shower and since then we've had cloud cover, which as Mr Lard said has just made it muggy and oppressive. Signs of the clouds breaking just now so hopefully it'll be a bit more pleasant later in the day.

They've just issued an amber warning  for the Island for fog and 'other ' weather for the next couple of days.  I'm fed up with all this panic, it's since the 'hurricane' which wasn't going to happen and then did.  We've had so many warnings of 'thundery' weather and then nothing happens.  'Crying wolf' springs to mind because I ignore them now but one day I am going to get  caught out.  :nowink:

We've had a few showers but nothing else.  It's really dark and muggy, we've got the main lights on and the doors open.  There's no draught and no bird song.  It rained over night as the flat roof had it's usual puddles.

Rained overnight yesterday on and off, but no storms.  Today was cooler, but still humid.  It started raining again about an hour ago and was quite heavy for a while.  I have the window open to catch a breeze and swear I can hear the garden plants sighing with relief  :)

just a max of 17c today, quite blowy NNE.   It has absolutely poured down, and as my carport has been taken down, ready for the new-build, my garage is a bit wet !!!    But need the roofer before the carport can be constructed.   ::)

Today looks set for a greyish day, possibly a little drizzle later.

About 20 minutes of sunshine over the whole weekend and nearly 24 hours of continuous rain on Friday. What a waste of 16 hours of daylight.

This site which I picked up off a weather forum shows how wet it has been in the SE in June so far, largely thanks to Friday

Another miserable attempt at a summer day. 13C and rain all day. The weather has been dreadful in the SE over the last five days at a time of the year you really don't need it. Most of my holidays in the Scottish Highlands over the last 30 years have had better weather than this last week in Sussex.

Hardly anything in the way of rain (again - can't view the running totals until the whole month's data is loaded by my local weather station, but I'd be surprised if we'd had much more than half an inch of rain in the whole of June so far here.)

It's a real shame that I can't share some of ours  ::) Just lately it seems hardly a day goes by without some rain - and quite heavy rain at times  :( It's spoilt this year's roses and the plot is getting weedy because it's rarely dry enough to hoe.
So it's no surprise to open the curtains this morning, to see more grey sky and rain  :( It's all very depressing..

We really don't. After the very dry April, May was cool and wet, June started off warm and sunny and rapidly deteriorated from then on. When we are about to relax COVID restrictions, the last thing the battered tourist industry needs (or most people) is a lousy washout summer. We had this nonsense last year after a sunny and bone dry April and May, restrictions eased in June, which turned into the 13th wettest on record.

From about 3 o'clock it started to get darker and darker and finally started to rain at  5   pm and has not stopped since.   There is a storm warning out for the Island tonight.  Lower lying plants are waving around but the taller ones are hardly moving.

Wind (outside, not inside  ::)) woke me up at 5 and I couldn't get back to sleep.
I had to go outside and clamp the greenhouse door together, as it is gusting at 35mph from the SW directly into the greenhouse  :ohmy:
So all my planning what I was going to do on the allotment, this morning, was a waste of time ..

Small amount of rain last night, about 0.5mm - but enough to dampen everything. Grey day today but not cold, running around 17C
Light rain to come later according to the met office - followed by a dry weather for 3 days. We'll see! :)

It is so disappointing, the winds have dropped a bit, but it is still more than usual from the SW.     No signs of sun, just grey clouds.  The last few days it has suddenly got better with sun about 6pm.  I am running in and out of the greenhouse with special plants in containers, and hanging baskets taken down and sitting on the ground  >:(

A bit overcast, but the clouds are quite high so not as grey as it could be.  We got away with just one decent sized shower yesterday, so I am hoping for the same today.

All this rain means the weeds at the plot are going crazy.  The veg is growing as well, but we all know which grow faster  ::)

Yesterday afternoon was nice sunny and warm, so got al my strimming done on the plot.

Good job 'cos today is cloudy, cool, 14C, and very, very wet. Rained most of the night, light drizzle now - but the MetO has issued a weather warning for heavy rain today  :ohmy: Pfft!

Awakened at 5:45am by two cats demanding breakfast. Loudly. Fed them and back to bed until 8:30 which was later than planned. The polytunnel, despite being open at both ends to allow a cooling breeze and only having been in full sun for half an hour, was 28C
It's really scorchio already. Hotter than the met office's predicted 24C midday peak. A day for sitting in the shade.

Summer has finally arrived in the SE, but as usual the pendulum swings the other way. Weeks of 18C with cloud and rain swings to 30C and sunny. I'm not complaining too loudly but if it were 5C cooler it would be ideal. Happy mediums seem to be very rare these days.

Yesterday I was on the community plot and my plot for a couple of hours in the afternoon, and just didn't have the energy to do anything physical beyond watering and a small amount of weeding. I don't know if it was purely the weather, or the second COVID jab an hour earlier, but I felt the life being sucked out of me as the afternoon went on.

From what I've heard, it's probably best to avoid strenuous exercise for a day or two after a vaccination as your body concentrates on building up your defences. Sounds reasonable to me, anyway.

I have largely been taking it easy this weekend, mainly because I find it unpleasant to do anything strenuous in 30+C heat. Preparing for distrubed sleep as the upstairs of my house is estimated around 28C and it is forecast to not drop below 18C overnight. At least I only have to deal with it for a week.

It was a lot easier to sleep than I had anticipated. Left windows open all night, slept on top of duvet, and house had cooled to 21C by morning. If you suffer in cold damp weather you have my sympathy, that sums up three quarters of the UK's climate. You must have been fed up in May/June this year, two consecutive wet months in SE England, at a time of the year the weather is normally pretty good .

Much harder to sleep last night. I did do some weight training at the gym late evening (amazing how many people are training at quarter to midnight) which meant I couldn't leave the windows open all evening, so my house was more stuffy than the previous night when I went to bed. I'm not going out this evening so will be able to optimise the cooling.

Another hot day, not as hot as yesterday, though!
There are a line of thunderstorms that seem to be tracking Eastwards, just to the North of us, we can see the clouds, hear the distant thunder - but are getting none of the rain  ::) It's a shame, it would save me having to water everything tonight  ::)

It was bearable until about 11am and after that it was hide under the sunshade on the patio.  Watering heavily - but moving a sprinkler in the dark is not as easy as in the day. They call me the midnight waterer :) (with apologies to the Rolling Stones)

Lovely and sunny with a slight breeze cooling things down a bit  8)

Plants in the garden borders are beginning to look a bit crispy, so I'll have to get the hose out later, I was rather hoping the thunderstorms would get here before I had to  ::)

The most scorchio day we've had so far and it's around 29C. Strangely it's a bit cooler in my little greenhouse with the jungle of sweet corn and tom leaves and white shading paint on the outside glass but I've given it a good damping down anyway.

29C is today's max (again) - clouded up somewhat now and I can see a couple of thunderstorms have formed just to the south of us, heading in the Coventry/Birmingham direction if they last that long...

Definitely had enough too, although the sweetcorn has loved it (6' tall without the tassels, which are just forming on one or two of them, probably just in time to get drenched by the forecast thunderstorms.  :unsure: :nowink:)

Too hot overnight again (28c) but feels a bit better outside this morning, slight breeze so I've opened everything up in an attempt to get some fresher air in. Every time I check the forecast the rain has moved a few hours further away  :( It really needs a good soaking to take the edge of things now.

Cooler here this morning with a breeze, which is far preferable to the hot airless feel we have had. 

Our rain is predicted for the early hours of tomorrow morning followed by the end of the world.  Well maybe not that bad, but storm, torrential rain and flash flooding warnings have been issued  :ohmy:

Dramatic clouds scudding across the sky but only a few drops of the much needed rain have arrived so far. Reasonably warm though. Heavier rain is promised for later.

Nice warm day yesterday with the promise of heavy showers in the afternoon.

In the event, my garden stayed bone dry, whereas a friend walking in a park about 4 miles away got drenched!

Today, pleasantly warm start although the wind is starting to pick up as the weather front approaches (allegedly!  :unsure:  ;))

Rain started about midday and has alternated between drizzle and heavy.  It's a bit breezy but nothing like they said.  Call this a storm, I call it a normal autumnal day!  I might have to eat those words later though.  :D

Next week it's back up to a balmy 34 C (so "cool" is relative; 26 C in August is considered VERY comfortable).
 
It's not too unusual for a tropical storm (or what's left of it) to work it's way north to the Atlantic coast again. Especially storms that re-emerge at the New York coast, or further north, could cross the Atlantic!  On occasion, sometimes our rain storm later becomes your rain storm!

Warm enough at 20C and dry (although we had a spot of light rain around 7:30am) with grey skies. Possibly brightening up later. The Indian Summer forecast has been downgraded to One Nice Day which is scheduled for tomorrow.

I wasn't sure where to put this, but it is weather, and may be of interest.

Hurricane Larry is forecast to bring feet of snow and possibly hurricane-force wind to the east coast of Greenland:
https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/09/10/weather/hurricane-larry-forecast-weekend-snow-greenland/index.html (https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/09/10/weather/hurricane-larry-forecast-weekend-snow-greenland/index.html)

If I were in the UK, I'd be monitoring where that storm is headed next. Most likely impact would be more wind, rain, and surf along the coast, though not at hurricane intensity.

If I were in the UK, I'd be monitoring where that storm is headed next. Most likely impact would be more wind, rain, and surf along the coast, though not at hurricane intensity.
Most often our weather in the west of the UK comes in from the Atlantic. I can usually get a good feel for what's due by looking at current weather in Dublin - roughly 130Km away across the the sea.
Currently it looks to be a pleasant, dry day ahead :)
Around 20C, no wind and light cloud in a blue sky - intermittent sunshine.

Chilly, overcast and breezy here.  It seems wrong that places further north are warmer than here in the south.  I've had to have the light on all day as it's been so dark. Not looking forward to the forecast for the weekend when it's supposed to get even colder.

We had the frost yesterday night/morning. Twas chilly planting out the late daffodil bulbs for the neighbour and having a fight with her rampant nasturtiums to go into the last brown bin collection.

It's warmer outside this morning but there's the threat of gales (Amber) and rain with a bit of snow thrown in later. Well I say warmer but throw in the wind chill and maybe not.

That's such a risk with old buildings like churches. There was a fatality quite a few years ago in the city centre in a similar incident  :ohmy:  :(. Our buildings manager promptly went onto our church roof and checked for / removed a piece of stone which could have had a similar fate. He thought better to ask for permission to do so afterwards, than risk the same outcome  :(

The wind has eased back to just the occasional 30mph gust and it has stopped raining now, and the sky is clearing thank goodness, as the footpath is flooded again.
A few odd branches down in neighbour's garden, and a fence down along the terrace, but can't see much other damage.
We had 6 small power cuts, the longest was 10 minutes and by the time I'd found the matches and candles, the lights were back on  :D

Well it's calm now, phew. Greenhouses survived, which I was really worried about. Aerobin composter lid has vanished - hope it turns up. The big shed has lost some of its roofing felt. I was hoping it would stay dry until I can fix it but it's been drizzling.
I suppose I'd best face up to sorting out everything that's blown about on the patio...

Cold but calm.  There was another tree down in the park this morning, but I'm not sure if that happened yesterday or last night. There a bit of sunshine about but nothing worth getting excited over.

Wind is calm - which is nice.

Grey, mizzle and 7C - which isn't as cold as I was lead to believe by the forecasts.....
 ::) I'm pleased about that, though  :D

Same here. The dampness is horrible though - making it feel much colder than it actually is.

WInd came up in the night and it's really blowy out there. Few spits of rain. Quite warm at 6C last night but it's dropped this morning to just 2C

Rain has stopped and it's trying to brighten up.  A grey day.

Spits and spots of rain, here, but it is still very dark and still, 3C

Dark, frequent blustery showers, and only 4.4C ('feels like' 1.4C) - yuk!  :(
