Hey there mr blue.

The sun is shining in the sky...... here in a stunningly green west Wales - and we are soaking up every worthwhile moment.

Brilliant. Cool

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

For the younger members of the forum...

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

It's certainly made the fish a little more active now the waters have warmed up. Fishing yesterday, and again today.  Thumbs Up

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Re: Hey there mr blue.

Just arrived home from a heatwave in the US and it looks like there is another one hereCool Today is forecast to break a record for the May Day Bank holiday. The old record was 23.6º but so far today this has already been exceeded with a temperature of 24.2º. A few hours left for it to go even higher and London is expected to reach 28º this afternoon.

According to the 'Trend' it has plenty of time to set a new record.

Re: Hey there mr blue.

Funny how we always move away from Celsius to Fahrenheit when it gets warm, is this indecision or ‘reporting’ sensationalism ?

Re: Hey there mr blue.

According to the ITV London news it reached 28.7C at Northolt.

Since the bank holiday can fall on any date from the 1st to 7th May, going on about it being "the hottest May Day bank holiday ever" is a bit misleading, and since it was also only introduced in 1978, "ever" in this case means 40 years.  I think they said it was almost this hot on 7th May in 1995.  I remember it was 29C when we celebrated 50 years since the end of WWII on the 8th May that year.

I seem to remember that forecasters, at least on the BBC, were instructed only to give the Celsius values for temperatures in the 1970s.  I'm not sure when or why they reverted to giving them in both scales.  You don't learn a foreign language if simultaneous translation is always available.

I have no problem using both scales, or converting from one to the other, at least for temperature from a few degrees below freezing to the highest we get here.  If you remember that 32F is 0C, 61F is 16C, 82F is 28C, and there is 1.8F in each 1C, you can easily do the conversion in your head.
