Only slightly colder than us Cathy.

Maz, Mags says it's nice in Perth as well. Here we have had a rainy night and it's still mizzling but we need it. They promise us a warmer spell at weekend. Glass falling slightly at 29.4"

Quite a lot of rain yesterday. Drier looking this morning and the glass is tending to rise. 29.25".

In case you're wondering why I keep this post going, some climate researcher in the future might find it useful.

Dry, Glass at 29.2". Very little wind but what there is is from the south. Another good walking day!

Quite a lot of rain in the night. Shipping forecast this morning was a list of gale warnings and glass is dropping. We may be in for the heavy rain we have been needing but according to the Met Office the worst hit counties in the east will not share it.

Jack and I got caught in the heaviest shower I have seen for months as we came back from lunchtime walk, heavy rain and hail slanting down. Jack was not amused! Rain and strong winds forecast for today, forecast up to 80mph further north coming in from the SW. Glass is at 29.2" and hasn't started to fall yet. If and when it does it will be sudden. Met Men say that the cause of the exceptional low in the Atlantic is a bend in the jet stream which is tending to the south as it nears us. Didn't know they could do that. No relief in it for the SE, they are to stay dry.

A bit like our weather.
It was so wet and windy here yesterday, my Peach Tree went from being in full leaf to no leaf during the course of the afternoon! I have a back yard full of the leaves, and even found some on the front door mat this morning, so they have had an interesting journey. Peach tree is against the back fence! at least I can prune it now....not today....when it stops bucketting down.


get your people to phone my people and we will do lunch...MAZ Go to Top of Page

Stiff breeze here even in the town but no 80mph. The lilac tree in the front garden whipped about like a flag in the wind but survived, blossom stayed on as well! I got worried about it at one point, the roots were moving slightly in the ground but I think it's OK. Glass up to 29.3" and a lioght spattering of raindrops at the moment. Forecast to clear and a frost tonight. Cover those tender plants!

Just walked round the town, a few branches knocked out of trees but nothing serious. What did strike me was one quiye large branch that had been ripped out of one of the trees on the old sidings. Can you remember them felling the two big Horse Chestnut trees near the bus stop a few years ago? Since they went, several trees have been damaged or even uprooted on the green. The Horse Chestnuts were evidently breaking the wind before it reached the green. One of the trees nearest the road (the direction the wind came from) was doing the same job but lost a big branch. The others are OK.

Quite wild up here, and I was very anxious about my new poly tunnel ..but it was fine, though the cover over our pump house has blown off. It was too wild to go down an investigate last night, but we are off to attempt repairs this morning.
We recorded gusts up to 35mph, which doesn't sound like much, but it makes it hard to stand up on an open hillside!
At one point yesterday the barometer shot up to 31 in less than half an hour, and the wind dropped right away, a little while later the barometer dropped steeply and the wind picked up again. It must have been the "eye of the storm" passing over.

Just back from 3 weeks in the tin tent, first week in Shropshire was lovely, second one in Mid Wales was a mixture of cloud and sun but very little rain, the past five days spent on Anglesey were extremely windy, with gales yesterday morning and torrential rain which cleared to leave a sunny afternoon.  The sea at Rhosnegre was really wild, very picturesque.
