Mine’s Bigger than Yours

Post by nking » Wed 10 Feb 2010 11:27 pm

Cumulus has been going since 27th January 2004 and I thought it might be fun to run a Cumulus Record Breaker competition (no prizes or money involved). Unlike the fisherman’s (pc = person) tale about the one that got away, in Cumulus we have records, so no cheating now :o

If you feel that you have a world beating record from your “All Time Records – Highs and Lows” then post it on the forum clearly indicating the record(s) you are claiming. Please include your website address (if applicable), together with location and how long you’ve been running Cumulus (Steve needs this to check off who has donated…. only joking :lol: ).

I’m sure it will be interesting to see this data from around the world, so good luck ;)

Special mention

* I'll just add that back on the 7 Feb 2009 I measured 46.5 with a mercury thermometer positioned where my weather station sensor now is.
* Although it is recorded by Cumulus, it doesn't appear on the records page, I think WestOz's record of 78 days without rain should be listed.
* I have recorded a high of 37.0° C in August 1995 and a low of -43.5° C in January 1994 - a range of 80.5°.

Great idea Neil!! Can this be made into a sticky? ;)

I guess I can't use my weather station glitch last night where I recorded 2121mm rain 160kph wind gust and 48 degree high temp. :(

I have only been collecting since this year so I expect this will be a short lived record, but I'll get the ball rolling anyway with a max of 40.2C. :D

I've only used Cumulus since 25 Oct 2009, so there's bound to be someone with a higher max. than mine.

We had 42.3C at 16:21 on 11 Jan 2010.

I'll just add that back on the 7 Feb 2009 I measured 46.5 with a mercury thermometer positioned where my weather station sensor now is.
Cheers,
Graeme.

Damn I knew mine wouldn't last long. :( ;)

Hey Neil, as you can edit your first post, would you be prepared to update your post with the record holders so that people don't have to read through the entire thread to see the records? :D

I have a couple of jokers to play, but I'm keeping them close to my chest until a few others have had a go ;)

ALthough it is recorded by Cumulus, it doesn't appear on the records page, I think WestOz's record of 78 days without rain should be listed. :)

also I'm sure it will be beaten (Probably by Graeme ;) ) but my highest minimum is 24.5 on 11th Jan 2010
