British Summer Weather
« on: June 22, 2012, 04:35:31 PM »
The Olympic Torch was scheduled to go through our village today, and I was duly asked to take pictures for my brother over there in sunny California.
My wide and I stood for around an hour in the pouring rain, and howling gale, to find that the runners with the torch were inside a bus, and thus we missed them.
Today is the first day of summer. So far I have had over and inch of rain since midnight, not yet 1700 here, and gusts up to 43 mph. There is standing water everywhere, broken branches and leaves , my anemometer masts look like they are at a disco, and the cats have had a pyjama day. I have a wedding tomorrow as well.
So if this is summer roll on winter. Looking at the GRIB data for next week it should get warmer, the rain that is!!!!!!

Best wishes

I know how you feel Mike, not quite so bad over here on the East coast, but it does make you want to pack a bag and move to California for a few days of heat and dry weather.  [cheer]

Could be worse though, could have been going to the Isle of Wight festival  [thunder] [thunder] recording it on Sky 3d instead  [lol]

Howdy Mike, JC, and WeatherCat fans,

I know how you feel Mike, not quite so bad over here on the East coast, but it does make you want to pack a bag and move to California for a few days of heat and dry weather.  [cheer]

Well, when you book your flight be choosy of your destination.  I'm not getting the rain I asked for, but at the moment, Northern California is definitely not the dry heat that you'all are looking for:



On the other hand, the forecast high for Death Valley is: 109˚ F (42.8˚ C) . . . . That should definitely take the "chill" out of your bones!  [sweat2]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Now running close to 50mm of rain, nearing 2400 local time. Wind still blowing, rain still coming, and going to; carry on coming tomorrow. Average rain for June is 67mm for my station, thus approaching a month's rain in 24 hours. And my anemometers masts are still at the disco.

Ho hum

Best wishes
