8th December - Today's News: Widespread Floods Across Eastern Australia

The temperature in my back garden rose to the heady heights of -4.9c yesterday afternoon, by far the coldest day I've ever recorded. Whilst I wasn't able to get out and take any photos during the brief period in the afternoon when the fog cleared and the sun shone on a frozen winter wonderland, I did get out with tripod for some night-time shots after work. I think they came out rather well!


And on a different note, a friend on Ukweatherworld found this little cartoon which seems to be based exactly on the 'Vale Effect' whereby storms always pass around rather than over Evesham!

And back to the weather news, and it's much of the same old same old, I'm afraid as North York Moors drivers stranded in heavy snow and fresh snow brings Scotland to a halt

We were caught out by a perfect storm says Salmond

It's cold and snowy across the Atlantic too with Northern Maine digging out of snowstorm as snowfall blankets Montreal and there's a 'monster' storm set to cause travel chaos in US this weekend

Torrential rain hits Melbourne with much of Australia awash, worse to come. Fortunately, Western Australia isn't affected so no concerns about the 3rd Test in Perth next week. The final two Tests in Melbourne and Sydney may be affected by rain though - well I did forecast a wet summer down under!
