This is actually one of Husband's pictures taken of hang gliders on the South Downs on one of his long distance walks. I thought it might cheer us all up in this really gloomy awful sunless rainy weather we are having.
I have kept weather records for over 30 years. Last year during the floods we clocked up 78mm of rain in 24 hours. I have a tipping bucket digital wireless rain gauge and wireless temperature sensors etc. I think over the 30 years the most dramatic change is in the overnight temperatures. I used to record -12C on occasions in the 1970's and 80's, now everyone gets excited if the overnight temperatures dip below -4C. We used to get 'freezing days' where the temperature never climbs above zero - not any more.
