  • Am camping and riding in the South Downs National Park this week, and it’s been scorchio. Today was supposed to be thunder and showers on and off, but not a sniff of them. It’s been more overcast and a lot cooler but absolutely perfect for riding off-road, Tuesday and Wednesday were just too hot to do more than 20 miles. Tonight it’ll just be cool enough for a fire, yay

  • I drove across a large part of the South Downs National Park yesterday afternoon through an absolutely torrential thunderstorm. You got lucky.

  • well after 5 days of the met office telling me it was torrential rain and thunder in the next 2 hrs every time i looked at their website, finally got a bit of rain last night, 10 mins of heavy rain

    the area round maidenhead had a monster lightning storm last night, watched it's progress on the thundermaps website, as it was due over london .... according to the met office, another lie

    nice cool breeze through the house today though,

    met office still predicting rain ... fuck 'em going shopping and leaving the roof windows open with confidence

  • Finally cool and grey today. From looking at the weather forecast for next couple of weeks - that was it for the summer, right? Gently dropping down to highs of 20 by the end of the month.

  • Until the meteor hits, sure

  • Well yes, there's always that

  • Can somebody update with the pluviometer readings please?

  • XII cubitum X pedes

    hail caesar

  • When I went there in the nineties it was freezing.

  • Sunday's reading was recorded in Furnace Creek in Death Valley.

  • Great British summer weather for testing a new, lightweight tent.

  • it's raining.

  • Everyone:
    Has anyone got a recommendation for a uk weather app, (for iphone)? Used to have Met Office one, seems to have disappeared.

  • Dark Sky is the one.

    Owned by Apple now so I guess they'll consolidate it into their stock weather app but available separately for now...

  • I wrote a weather app for Arduino using the Dark Sky API but Apple withdrew the free API literally days after I finished it. Cunts!

  • And they withdrew the app from Android. I've still not found one to definitively replace it yet.

    @Skülly I'm using Windy at the moment which seems nice but possibly too detailed.

  • Ouch. Yeah, don’t think that’s coming back either.

  • socks shoes and long sleeve shirts have made a reappearance round the house
    still in shorts but knees getting chilly

  • what a beautiful morning
    chilly misty sunrises ftw

  • Snow forecast for west London for Friday.
    Studded tyre day?

  • Really? The forecasts I have seen just say sleet

  • A day for building socially distanced snowmen.
