It's calm and clear again this morning. The glass is up a bit at 1021mb. The forecast is for full sun but with a bit of scattered cloud at times. The westerly wind is very light rising a bit in the afternoon. The high is 24C and the low 15C. The outlook is slightly cooler but still dry, no rain in sight. Getting a bit boring, we need rain!
06:00. Full sun, cool and pleasant out there but it is shaping up to be a hot one. I shan't be working at full throttle today......

First thing this morning it was clear and cool, almost calm. It's the same now and despite thin cloud in the East the sun is coming though. The glass is up slightly at 1023mb. The forecast is for early sun but a more cloudy day. The light wind starts in the west but gradually moves round through the north ending up as an east wind later tonight. This will give a cooler day, high of 21C and a low of 12C, a bit of a respite from the heat but still dry. The outlook for the next few days is similar to today but warming up again later in the week. No rain anywhere in the forecast.
06:10. A perfect summer morning's walk.... 16C, calm and despite light cloud coming in, full sun. Best part of the day....
I noticed particularly this morning the difference between the conditions on the Town Green and those in Valley Gardens. In the Gardens the trees are doing fine thank you, they are on bottom land with deep root systems and the benefit of the beck and its associated water table. The Green is a different case, it was reclaimed from the old railway sidings and there will be a lot of hard core under it and not a lot of depth of soil. You can see this from the number of surface roots on the trees, they are going out sideways more than down. The consequence is that the trees are parched and showing stress.

Yesterday was more cloudy and bit cooler but still dry. Bit cooler at 21:00 taking Jack out and on top of the duvet last night...... First thing this morning it was overcast again I think, no stars visible. The glass is back slightly on 1022mb. The forecast is for a dry partially overcast day similar to yesterday. The east wind is constant, starts light but gets up to moderate a bit later on giving a high of 19C and a low of 12C. Warms up a bit tomorrow..... Still no rain in the forecast.
06:25. No sun, overcast and cool but nevertheless still tee shirt and waistcoat territory. A pleasant walk and very quiet.

Currently 8C here, with an overnight low predicted at 7C.
So no need for the heater. Not cold enough for us to bother with the heater. ( but I would be interested to know if our UK friends would disagree...please let us know...we just don't feel it is particularly cool)

My heating is set to kick in when house temperature is less than 18C Maz. It has to be cold outside for that to kick in but on the whole I think that I would have a crack of heat.....
Cloudy day yesterday and cooler, very pleasant change! At 21:00 it was calm, cloudy and cool. This morning it's calm, a bit of high thin cloud and cool, we shall have early sun. The glass is down slightly at 1019mb. The forecast is for a sunnier day but still a bit of cloud. The constant very light east wind will give us a high of 21C and a low of 13C a touch warmer. The outlook is for virtually the same weather for the next week at least.
06:05. A calm, cool pleasant morning with the sun moderated by light cloud in the East. Still tee shirt and waistcoat weather. The Shipping forecast gives a uniformly quiet picture over the whole of the Isles....
Still no rain in sight, we can expect some action on water use very soon.

Yesterday was on the whole scattered cloud and good sunny spells but at 21:00 it was 100% overcast and by very thick black cloud that looked as though it had rain in them. No rain though. This morning it is the same, 100% overcast and very little wind. The glass is down a touch at 1018mb. The forecast is for an overcast day with less sun and the chance of a light shower in the early evening. The easterly wind is variable in direction but constant and very light, it will give us 21C high and 14 low tonight. Hints of a change but still no significant rain in the forecast.
05:50. Back from a very pleasant walk on a cool morning, a very red sun in the east when we set off getting in under the cloud but as it rose it lost the battle. A light wind and cool, just right!
I noted two things, the computer shop has moved in next door to the shop vacated by the Linens, a big move and I wish him well.
Stephenson House in Church Street sprouted St George flags yesterday. Mr Stephenson was doing his usual thing, jumping on a band wagon but the wheels came off it immediately. Expect a quick 'U' turn.....

We had a shower of rain last night about 1.30am. The strange noise woke me up!

There is rain about and it feels close to me..... the sooner the better.
Cloud yesterday and at 21:00. Overcast again this morning. The glass is rock steady on 1018mb. The forecast is for an overcast day with some sunny spells and a chance of a light shower any time particularly this afternoon. The wind is a very light variable southerly giving us 20C and 14C tonight. Feels close to me...... Outlook is for more like this.
06:00. A very dull start to the day with heavy overcast. A red sun was peeping through a break in the cloud in the east but soon vanished. I wore a light coat for the first time for weeks. It's calm and dry but it feels as though rain is in the offing.
Two things caught my attention. I have spent most of my life noting the readings on various dials and instruments and the digital readout on the boiler in my bathroom always gets attention. It's very accurate and reached a peak of 29C in the hot weather, it is slowly dropping back and this morning is on 26C. A reliable sign of what's happening to the weather.
The old reception classroom that was in earlier years the school canteen opposite the entrance to Valley Gardens is looking increasingly neglected. It looks to me like a potential development site especially taking account of the garage site behind on the site of the old Corn Mill Dam.
I'm going into the day hoping for significant rain this afternoon!

We had a nice shower between 08:00 and 09:00. Quite heavy. Not enough but a good start and I am sure the plants have appreciated it!

No further rain yesterday. Overcast and dry at 21:00 and the same this morning. The glass is just under 1017mb. The forecast is for a dry sunny day. The wind is light and variable mostly west giving a high of 22C and a low of 13C. The outlook is still settled but perhaps rain on Monday?
05:55. I was wrong about the overcast when it was dark first thing, the sky was almost clear and we have early sun. There has evidently been a shower during the night, there's damp ground about. A pleasant walk!
I took my camera with me this morning, there are one or two pics I have been promising myself.

Image

This was the first.... I'm always banging on about old stones talking to us. This stonework at Dam Side is giving a lot of information. All right it's just a crumbling mess now but try to imagine what it was like when it was new.

Image

Very few people notice this part of Valley Gardens if they come downhill and use the entrance. An asset to the town I think and a credit to the volunteers who look after the gardens.

Image

You may remember me reporting a few weeks ago that a wagon had hit the gatepost on the mortuary yard and cracked it off. All credit to the Council, they have put a new gatepost in and re-hung the gate. This must have been yesterday. Just like new.

Image

Savage's old greengrocary shop has had its shop front refurbished. Can't see any progress at the moment but it looks hopeful.

It was a nice day yesterday, less cloud but no rain. At 21:00 the sky was almost clear, it was calm and warm. This morning first thing it was the same but a perfectly clear sky, I've just had a look outside and it's light earlier but no sign of the sun yet as there is some cloud away to the east. The glass is down a bit at 1012mb. The forecast is for a bright day, no rain, lots of sun and scattered cloud. The wind is a constant light WSW and gives a slightly higher high of 22C and a low of 15C. At the moment they are forecasting a cooler day tomorrow with a chance of thunder showers.
05:45. The sun came out while we were on our way round. Very quiet morning in the town, one pedestrian and one car after we met my mate Brian and his greyhound bitch, always a good meeting! At the moment no sign of the clouds.

Warmer than forecast I think yesterday. At 21:00 it was calm and warm but starting to cloud up. This morning it's the same but a lot more cloud. The glass is down again on 1009mb. The forecast is for rain later in the morning lasting all day, no mention of thunder this morning. The wind will be a constant SW starting light but increasing a bit as the rain comes in. High of 18C and a low of 11C. I hope it does rain, we need it!
