    Default How's The Weather There ?



    How's the weather where you are ?? Right at this moment ( 5:30 PM Saturday 19/12/2015......or 12/19/2015, which ever way you look at it ), we've got about 42 deg C ( I think that's about 106 - 107 deg F ) outside, and daylight from about 5 AM till around 9 PM. Ideal flashlight weather...... NOT !! Ha...and we just about cant be any further from the shortest day for us Southern Hemisphereians. ( Bryan Adams - Summer Of 69 crankin' through the TU8200 valve amp and Visaton Classic 200's ) Dreaming of crunchy white lawns and short days/long nights. Ahh well, only six months to go.
    Cheers and beers fronm downunder,
    Mike.

    Yeah, I've seen the news once or twice, and you seem to be getting a few floods also, in certain areas. Stay safe. I'm going to visit there one day after retirement, particularly RAF Conningsby and the Panton bros. farm at East Kirkby, to have a look at a couple of very famous bits of English history, namely PA474 and NX611.

    Cheers.

    Thanks, I am a little lower down(90 miles) from Cumbria(Lake District) . It has been a nightmare for them and thought with them all effected . Right before Christmas and failed by poor flood defences that just moved the flood water further down the river! It's not the first time either for them ......

    Here around Manchester it is rain rain rain although where I am is kind of high up and the nearest river is a 100m or so bellow(and a mile away). Have noticed the roads getting worse though with floods, I blame poor maintenance and leaves etc blocking them. Even the motorway is getting flooded regularly (m60) and can be quite hazardous , more so for traffic on the other side. As the drains over flow and form puddles in the fast lane, cars hit the water and send a huge wave over the central reservation which impaires drivers vision for a few seconds as wipers can't clear the flood in time.

    I digress , but it seems almost a daily occurrence and a serious accident in the waiting .

    Hope you enjoy the visit I do complain a lot about the UK but there are some really beautiful parts to visit . Just bring or borrow an anorak from mr McNair

    12-14 C, some drizzle, mostly cloudy, little bit of wind. Good enough for me

    Christmas time in New England in the US. Normally 30-40 degrees F around this time of year but we're breaking records this December because of funky El Nino wind pattern. Been in the upper 60s for the past few weeks.

    Overall, it's been unseasonably warm. Today, however, we had a few inches of lake effect snow.
    it is supposed to be over 60f this next Wednesday though.

    Not quite as warm just a bit north in Massachusetts, but close. Working outdoors, I'll enjoy these temperatures as long as they last.

    Weather is cool, slight wind, clear skies.

    I'm in central Maryland and we had temperatures in the mid-60s until this week, the warmest Dec. so far. But it's in the low 40s now which is more typical.

    Up in Arctic Norway at 69 degree north, it's 1.6 degree celsius right now. Cloudy, no wind, 35 cm snow on the ground. This time a year, the sun is below the horizon for two months, so it dark outside for about 20 hours a day, with 4 hours of twilight. Great conditions for flashlights and vampires

    Around Geneva, it's been warm and very foggy. Not enough enough snow in the mountains and the skiers are complaining. Took my daughter horse riding today and although it was pretty warm, the damp went to my bones. BBQ a steak tonight and the dampness was tough.

    It's about 65 degrees F (~18 C or so) in Cincinnati Ohio, having a thunder storm this evening & had tornado watches in the afternoon.

    No white Christmas. I at least want to put a fire on - but when we had a house party 2 weeks ago it got up to ~75 F in the house & we had to open the door.

    85° totally sunny, 90% humidity. Just another typical December day in South Florida. Everything is closed, so nothing to do but lay on the beach.

    What a contrast in a week. Whilst we are in El Nino conditions ( for Aus, that means drier, hotter conditions than usual ) at present, its raining and about 17 deg C ( Top of about 22 deg C for today ). Supposedly, we're heading for about 15-20 mm of rain today ( 26/12/2015 8:45am ). Traditionally, El Nino tends to break down here around March - May ( Autumn/Fall for Aus. ). It is nice to hear some decent rain on the roof, after some pretty hot conditions over the last week. Ohh, and a week closer to the shortest day, haha.
    Seems quite a few members are affected by El Nino at present. Interesting to see how it affects your part of the globe.
    Cheers
    Mike.
