Well, it was raining here most of the day. Approx 21 degrees C.

Funko
04-04-2005, 11:40:49
Rain at 21C? Urgh. Nightmare.

Greg W
04-04-2005, 11:44:35
Why? It's a comfortable temperature, so you're not freezing your arse off, and the rain slows most people down on the road. :beer:

Rain at 2 C, now that is fun.

Greg W
04-04-2005, 11:48:33
Rain at 40 C - now that's fun. Specially when it stops, and humidity hits 90%, and it's still 38 C.

Sounds like a tropical rain forest or something.

Greg W

Actually, someone was telling me the other day about something I'd never heard of before. When it's cold, but not cold enough to form snow. However it is cold enough to form ice as soon as the water hits anything. Called an Ice Storm.

Now that sounds nasty.

40C? Is that even surviveable?

I thought human enzymes started breaking down above 37.

I was exaggerating. I'd find 21 quite hot though.

We get abuse from the North Americans for not being able to handle the cold either.

Indeed, 30+C and high humidity is a killer. We get it here sometimes and wish to be in Egypt with 40C but dry air.

Bite me. Try using some vaguelly real (http://www.auinfo.com/sydney.htm)* figures, such as:
Sydney Rainfall
Average Rainfall - mm

Winter(June-Aug): 104

Looks like those are monthly averages within each period, so add together and triple. Look at my full breakdown from worldclimate.com.

You live in a very wet place.

Greg W
04-04-2005, 12:18:59
I think the big difference is that when it rains here, it rains a lot. Not lots of drizel.

Funko
04-04-2005, 12:21:46
Yes. An English friend of mine who was living in Sydney for a bit, before deciding he had to return to civilisation ;) , said that he thought it was quite ironic that the only time he's ever owned an umbrella was when he moved to Sydney because you really needed one there. :)

Oh, 40 degree temps are very, very rare. 40 degrees with rain is almost unheard of. I have suffered it once though.

I don't actually believe that statistic anyway. It's not foggy more days than it isn't fog's relatively rare.

You need to put spaces in - format it in notepad (or anything using a monospace font) and then post it into the code tag.

Well, I managed to find this (http://www.weatherdownunder.net/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=140) on Sydney:Rain days were also well below average for the year. Only 107 rain days were recorded in Sydney (historical average 136 days). I make it 152 for London. So it does rain more often in London than Sydney. :p

Funko
04-04-2005, 13:26:04
So it rains 15 days a year less but you get nearly double the rainfall.

HA! Losers!

Greg W
04-04-2005, 13:28:47
Well, more like 50% more. And about 95% less fog. :p

Different sources. :)

Found a decent Met Office source:

http://www.metoffice.com/climate/uk/location/england/

Visibility

Many parts of England, especially those relatively remote from the industrial and populous areas of both Britain and mainland Europe, enjoy good visibility. This is particularly true of much of the coastline, the mountains and the moorlands.

Over high ground in England fog statistics are scarce, but because moist air often spreads across the country, hill fog can be both extensive and frequent and is a potential hazard to be borne in mind by walkers. Contrast the average 233 days of fog a year at 0900 UTC between 1963 and 1976 at Great Dun Fell in Cumbria (at 857 metres), with the 1961-90 figure of six days for Carlisle (at 26 metres) in the same county.

It's an 850 meter (2,800 ft) high fell in cumbria that also has 114 days of gales a year. It's basically foggy because it's in the clouds most of the time. :lol:

Greg W
04-04-2005, 13:58:09
I reckon they're doing the stats from the air, and haven't been able to see through the smog in London yet, so they're presuming there's fog...

Funko
04-04-2005, 13:59:20
It's not 1890...

trying to find info about fog I found out that one month in Westminster in 1890 they had 0 hours of sunlight!

the first one was in the valley.. the difference between the valley and the mountains where I lived was a bit of temperature and a lot of rain (Detroit which wasa bit above us had 82.5 inches of percipitation and 82 inches of snowfall, we had basically all that in rain (even the valley gets more snow than us))

the second is minnesota

and I won't post it right now, but Maryland has similiar year long averages as the valley, but is hotter int he summer (And for longer) and colder in the winter)
