Re: Weather!

Beautiful again, but a tad cooler, a little breeze, and the air is all 'fresh' again.

Re: Weather!

Very hot again today- now dark and rumbling. Will it, won't it?

Edit- oh yes, deluge and high winds.

Re: Weather!

Didn't last long ... most of the rumbling seemed to come from the South.

Re: Weather!

Just got a flood warning for the river Emme, from the conflence of the river Grüene to the Aare.

There's an app called MeteoSwiss, this app is linked to local warning systems. Quite useful for snow, winds...first time I see a flood warning for the places I have marked as my interest for me.

Re: Weather!

Here's an article with a few clips of the floodwave and the wood it carried. Quite impressive, the locals must have been informed about it as there many spectators.

Re: Weather!

As theother thread has turned toxic, I’ll post this here.

Just received an Alert Suisse message that all open fires AND Fireworks are banned throughout Vaud. I doubt we are the only Canton. August 1 may be even more boring than usual.

The cats are celebrating…

We received the same alert for Neuchâtel but it’s only for private firework events and displays. The official ones will still go ahead.

Our commune had already joined with a couple of other communes and opted for a sound and light display instead of the traditional fireworks anyway.

Re: Weather!

Please make it stop. No A/C in the office, brain semi functional.

I'm hoping the forecast for the weekend is true and we drop 10 degrees after a bit of liquid falling from the sky.

And humidity has gone through the roof. Be careful what you wish for.

Nor here and looking at the projected trajectory on Meteosuisse it doesn’t seem as though they will be coming here.

Re: Weather!

It's going to pass by a few kms south of us. 30 degrees air and 17.5 degrees dew point now.
