Re: Big drop in temp in Cheshire, UK 25 August 2019.

Interesting charts. Do you have one that shows the visible satellite image? The chart suggests a front but the skies remained clear throughout the transition. Looking at the data uploaded to WU the wind direction at 17:39 was SSE. 5 minutes later it was SW and 5 minutes later was WNW. That’s 157° to...

Re: Big drop in temp in Cheshire, UK 25 August 2019.

There are plenty of cold fronts in the north too and temperature changes can be noticeable. But yesterday’s event was not the result of a cold front. It was something altogether different. I misunderstood you when you said you experienced several of those each year. Perhaps Freddie can say whether y...

Mapantz, are you close to the coast? Might that be a factor? I’m 35 miles from the Irish Sea.

Re: Big drop in temp in Cheshire, UK 25 August 2019.

Hi Freddie, lovely here now and in Shropshire too I see according to Sat24. No repeat performance today I think as it’s much cooler and as we both know no two days in the U.K. are ever the same.

Thanks once again. :clap:

Re: Big drop in temp in Cheshire, UK 25 August 2019.

Hi Freddie, What a brilliant explanation of yesterday's weather. Thank you very much for taking the time to explain it. It's all very complicated and I'm guessing that combination of air is not that common. I can only recall a couple of other occasions when the temp has dropped so quickly and those ...

Big drop in temp in Cheshire, UK 25 August 2019.

Today was a rare day meteorologically. My station recorded a maximum temperature of 31.2C at 14:34 and at 17:44 it was still 30.8C. But in the next hour it dropped 7C to 23.2C with a rise in pressure and change of wind. Full details here. https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/ISTOCKPO4/table/20...

Re: Moving Cumulus to a different pc

And are you running Cumulus with Administrator privileges. 10 is very funny about that. Right-click the Cumulus desktop shortcut, choose Properties, Advanced and make sure Run as Administrator is checked.

A kick up the backside often works wonders! :D At least you have a fall-back should you not want to start a new contract.

Re: New hosting advice

I chose HostPresto based in the UK. They've been great and even helped with some code I was struggling with. £24 per annum. Strongly recommended. https://hostpresto.com

Re: New Record? Post here.

Another horrendous day in Cheadle Hulme with 1.5" (38mm) of rain up to 7pm. That is on top of the 1.85" that fell on Sunday making this July the wettest in this station's history going back to 2009.

Re: New Record? Post here.

Mark, I did notice the wind dropped around the time the max was reached suggesting my enclosed garden was trapping heat. Not much I can do about that really. The real measurement of comfort is the dew point. That made it very uncomfortable all evening.

Re: New Record? Post here.

That is impressive hot air... But July not quite up to your 2018 July high average. Enjoy, and keep cool... Paul July 2018 was very different. Sustained heat but with lower humidity so more comfortable. This year we’ve had heatwaves lasting just a few days. But today’s was exceptional with heat sou...

Re: New Record? Post here.

Four all-time temperature records broken today in what has been an extremely hot day across both the UK and western Europe. Unprecedented for this station in over 10 years of recording. The previous high was 32.1C on 1 July 2015 so it's been well and truly smashed! :o

Re: NOAA Setup monthy columns blank

One point regarding entering averages for temp and rainfall for each month. It’s unlikely the averages will be included in earlier months. You may have to manually regenerate each month since records began. Could be a long job but very rewarding as seeing how far from the monthly (and annual) averag...
