The Weather Thread #9

Recommended Posts

Thick fog on Sunday morning, and pretty murky most of the day. Luckily not too cold. It was drizzling when I went to bed.

Unusually wet here; I can see muddy streams running down the fields on the other side of the valley. Forecast says rest of France is fairly dry! Heading for a more typical cold Winter spell though, cold with sunshine all day and hard frosts in the morning.

Lovely here this morning, and mild too. Clouding over though. I hear that we are due a big freeze next week - there's always a last blast, isn't there?

Belting down with rain last night around 11.00pm.....still damp and dreary this morning but with no more rain forecast for a few days - just the colder temps and overnight dips to -3/5 over the next week! I am always sceptical of forecasts more than a few days ahead though; as OH so eloquently puts it ' A seagull only has to f**t over the Atlantic and it'll all blow the other way'! Hence I only ever look a couple of days ahead (weatherwise!) :doh:

Baskervilley

 

Reminds me of when we were driving down to Tregony late at night when we were young. Dad needed a sleep because he was tired and we stopped on Dartmoor. My brother was little and was fidgeting around in the back with mum. I was riding shotgun. He was so angry when it was all quiet at last and I went "OWWWWWOOOOOO!" Can't think why - everyone else laughed.

 

I think we've had reasonable weather this week - rained in the night because I saw the puddles. Spitting a bit this evening but the moon does peek out of the clouds so not bad. Not cold either.

It was clear last night, but cold and overcast again this morning - replay of yesterday really, just colder.

 

Forecast for next week looks horrid; lots of minus temperatures and snow :(

Don't mention the S word.

Beautiful here now, not a cloud in the sky but quite chilly already.

So nice to have a cosy log in the wood burner :D

nice bright day here so far wind picked up a couple of hours ago but it's not to bad to be out in

it was cold enough ( more like a long enough cold snap than how cold it went) over night to put about an inch of frost into the ground down on the plot but I managed to finish digging no2 potato bed so hopefully I can put the rotivator through over the weekend only 22 or 32 days to spud planting weekend depending on weather I start planting St Patrick's day or Good Friday

We've had really nice days - although very cold. Cracking sunsets! Was up in Daventry yesterday and walked around the reservoir - nice in sheltered spots but brrrr that wind! This morning I woke up to big snowflakes floating down like a pigeon preening. Very intermittent. As I type it's getting darker (blue sky to the west though) and a few more flakes. I could hear the children waiting for the school bus - very excited they were! :lol:

That is chilly !!!!

At least it looks like it will get warmer for you towards the end of the week :wink:

 

Has been snowing little snow showers most of the day so far, but the sun has melted most of it.

The Head at my school has been organising phone numbers for just in case on Thursday, the main day my area is forecast snow :dance:

So much easier to deal with when the decision has been made. I get very anxious when it is snowy :(

Snow showers here with a dusting on the ground. We're forecast for snow all week with Thursday being the worst day. Is it wrong for me to want to get fleecy socks for our chooks?! :lol:

- 2 here at the moment and we've just had half an hour of really heavy snow.

My area wasn't meant to be getting snow until Thursday.

 

We got down to -7.1 last night.

I am down south with my dad at the moment; very cold here, some heavy snow showers, but nothing really sticking.

 

I live down South, but am always telling my parents I live up North :lol:

I am more North than they are :wink:

 

Looks like we are about to get another dollop of snow ........

Bitterly cold here. Minus 5 last night and supposed to be colder tonight. As Bernadette probably isn’t totally back to full weight yet I’ve bought a snugglesafe which I’ve been putting under the roosting bars in the Cube when we go to bed, and I’ve blocked the gaps between the poo trays and the back door and the big vent in the back door with rolled up bubble wrap (vents in the sides are still open for some air flow but not at bottom level!).

 

No snow yet...

I drive back through intermittent snow showers, then got between Js 10 and 11 on the M40 and drove into a white-out; down to 40mph and foggies on!

 

It is now -2deg here and we're not expected to get the worst, in terms of both temperature and snow until Thursday :roll:
