OYBBK of course this is directed to you (and anyone else!).....we are hoping to camp in Buckinghamshire and I have everything crossed for dry weather. What's the chance of that?

Later in the afternoon it became more tolerable in the garden and managed to mend my hosepipe, water 8 climbing roses, several pots, other plants in the garden, do some weeding, and fill up the pond which had gone down again. Took little dog for a cool walk at 6.30pm < still sunny> and when I got back remembered I'd forgotten to turn off the hosepipe filling up the pond!!

Better night temp at +7 and sunny again. Heating came on at 6am, but now gone off for the day smile

Sun disappeared. Sky no longer bright blue!

Don't worry digerd, just need to get this little cold front out of the way then things should brighten up and improve loads this afternoon.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 04-May-13 11:08:04

Oops re the pond! Mine needs refilling too, but hopefully without the garden flooding!

At the moment it is thunder and lightening and pouring down.
Good for the garden but those poor campers sad

And if it is the same at 3pm, no doggie walks in this. It was fine this morning if a bit chilly with no sun.

digerd Sat 04-May-13 12:46:31

But the heating has stayed OFF - hooray. smile

All mine are on various camps this weekend.
I persuaded all of them to take sun hats and sun cream and shorts.

We've had lots of HEAVY showers, ( admitedly inbetween sunny spells) here all morning blush

Just looked out and the sky has developed some blue patches and lighter ones, so in respite at the moment. Temp plummeted from 15 to 12 in 30 minutes. It was 19 at 10.36

digerd Sat 04-May-13 13:01:51

Sun come out again now. smile

Beautiful evening here in Notts. smile

The rain did stop and it became sunny again, but air was cooler.
Last night colder again at +4, but sunny atm.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 05-May-13 08:17:56

It will warm up again through today and tomorrow smile

digerd Sun 05-May-13 10:06:07

Just got back from dog walk. In the sun it was very warm with a fresh breeze. More white clouds arriving from the east though.
But is lovely this morningsmile

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 05-May-13 12:58:56

More clouds than blue sky here. Not unexpected but I wish they would go away!

leesmum Sun 05-May-13 17:45:23

Same here Kitten, not seen the sun at all today, am hoping to need my factor 50 tomorrow wink

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 05-May-13 21:10:22

There will be some cloud around tomorrow but in general I think more sun than cloud.

Forecast giving 3 degrees for obligation, is that right? (Sussex)

Shoud I protect my tomatoes?

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 06-May-13 21:28:56

Obligation? Do you mean overnight? grin where did you get that temp from? I think that a min of around 7c is prob the worst you will see.

However, gales on weds thurs. your plants may need staking!!!

PeneloPeePitstop Mon 06-May-13 21:29:36

Overnight. Lovely autocorrect!

digerd Mon 06-May-13 21:39:31

Had a lovely warm sunny day today and + 10 minimum temp last night.

What is this about only +3 tonight? confused Turned my heating off couple of days ago < it only came on for a short while in the mornings anyway>
15 atm S.Herts.

PeneloPeePitstop Mon 06-May-13 21:51:36

It was Netweather.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 06-May-13 22:23:32

Don't worry GFS does tend to go too low on these night time minima.

digerd Tue 07-May-13 09:25:59

rilliant prediction as bang on +7 last night. Warm and sunny today.

We do still need rain for the garden, though. During the night will be finesmile
