Very windy here, half metre waves on the Rhine and throwing up a lot of water spray.

Bright sunshine and a beautiful day here in Wigan. Makes me wonder what we're coming home to on Saturday.

I don't think you're going to be very surprised.

If you really want to get updates on your local weather then look here.

This is a network of home weather stations that are internet capable. You search a location, pull up a map and can click on the nearest one; if you are lucky then even in the same street.

I'm not surprised people would check the weather in their street on the internet, ROFL.
It's also greaet for Medea, who likes to keep her shutters down for days

Not knocking your link, it's cool. What I liked most the first second was it telling me it was 54° in Zurich. Just when I grabbed my shoes and wanted to run out I noticed it was Fahrenheit

Re: Weather!

15°C - not what I call warm. But at 14°C outside, our heating system automatically turns off.
Guess that's what you guys call a catch 22.

Re: Weather!

Well THAT was gorgeous- sat on the kitchen steps to the garden with a friend and chatted all day in the warm sunshine- with the birds all around. You could practically see all the plants in the borders growing as we had a good laugh and a chinwag

It's all relative.

For Zurich, it's probably as gorgeous as it gets.

Re: Weather!

No snow up in t'Jura. Woke to a bit of fog (VERY unusual up here) then a lovely sunny day, but not particularly warm. Worked in garden - will be off looking for morels tomorrow morning- when warmth arrives. 21C on Thursday.

It would have gone pretty quickly, if Basel's weather is any guide (which it isn't, it's always way nicer here than in Zurich). It will be 26° here on Thursday, apparently.
