Hows the weather there?

It was a summer's day here as well. But, with Gustav on the way to this area by tomorrow night or Monday when the outer bands will reach this area, I think we are n for a small amount of precipitation. The storm is likely to satll here in Central Texas. Oh, what a wonderful week(s) ahead.

Nope.  We were without power this morning and have had one or two little tornados, but I think/hope all we're going to get some nasty wind and rain.

Oh dear that sounds rather nasty but you've had to live through
these storms/hurricanes before.

Seems old Gusty has claimed a few lives already. Thank goodness New Orleans has been evacuated this time. I hope they don't have such a bad time this time.

Sharon not exactly because now the New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagal (sp)
has put a dusk to dawn curfew. Having asked the citizens to leave
the city.

It is going to get very bad for New Orleans. The levees are still in bad shape as the plan to bring them up to standards that could stand a direct hit is in its third year of implementation - third year of a ten year plan.

Also, the area in which most work has been done is the area of the damage caused by the last hurricane. This will not be the area mos adversely affected with this storm. Last time the east bank was most damaged. This time the west bank is the area expected to receive the worst damage while part of the east bank, although not as badly hit , will still be quite severely damaged.

It just doesn't look good for New Orleans.

All we will get here is a lot of rain after landfall and possible a few tornados: nothing compared to what the poor people over there will suffer. And it will cause problems for the US - and world - economy for quite a while. It all has to do with oil and refining. The area that will be hit is the largest concentration of refining in the US and possibly the world. So prices for all petroleum and petroleum products will increase dramatically.

And the northern part of the US will suffer this winter as there will be no way to replace the heating oil that would have been refined in the area that will take the brunt of the storm.

Now

Rain continuing to spread eastwards across the country, with some sleet and snow in parts of Ulster and north Leinster at first. Clearer showery weather extending from the west this afternoon and evening. Highest temperatures 5 to 10 degrees, with the moderate to fresh winds veering northwesterly.

Tonight

Clear spells and scattered showers tonight, largely of rain or hail. Lowest temperatures 1 to 5 degrees in strengthening north to northeast winds. Ground frost forming in some inland areas.

We had some sleat and a frost last night. Temps down to -1

Today: rain/sleat earlier then dry with patchy cloud. Max temp 9 deg.

Now: dry, cold. temp 3 deg

Tonight: patchy cloud, dry. Max temp is forecast at 5 deg??? I think we be lucky if it stays above 0.

Tomorrow: cloudy with some sunny intervals, dry with rain/sleat by the evening. Max daytime temp 5 deg.

Raining in Paignton at the moment, filling up my rainwater harvesting system nicely. Behind every dark cloud there is a silver lining. Temperature dropped off last 2 days, not reaching freezing yet at least.

Cold overnight with frost in many areas, and a risk of icy patches. Showers of rain or hail, some heavy, mainly in parts of the east and southeast. Breezy in coastal areas, with lighter winds inland. Lowest temperatures of minus 1 C to plus 4 C.


Tomorrow

Cold and breezy again tomorrow with sunshine and scattered showers. Showers will mainly affect northern and eastern coasts. Highest temperatures of 6 C to 9 C, with fresh and gusty north to northeast winds.

Cold this evening and tonight with mist and fog becoming widespread, and with some dense fog in places. A little rain or drizzle will affect the northwest, but otherwise it will be dry. Lowest temperatures zero to 5 degrees, with patchy ground frost, where skies stay clear.

Rain in the southwest and west will extend northeastwards this evening, turning heavy in places. Clearer conditions, with occasional rain and hail showers will arrive in Munster and Connaught early tonight. Rain affecting Leinster and Ulster will clear as the night goes on but blustery rain or hail showers will persist in Munster and Connaught. Turning colder overnight but frost is unlikely, owing to fresh or strong winds veering from southeast to southwest. Lowest temperatures 4 to 8 degrees Celsius.
