Re: 23 July 2018. How hot is it where you are in the UK?

Tomorrow's forecast is now showing 32 instead of 36. Apparently the thermometer in my parents' garden showed 32.1 this afternoon (same as Tuesday). No storms here yet.

Ouch, the forecast for Norwich on Friday is now 36 degrees! Must be a record for East Anglia. But only 23 degrees on Saturday, thank goodness, with thundery rain overnight!

Re: 23 July 2018. How hot is it where you are in the UK?

The official advice of keeping curtains and windows closed during the day seems to have made things worse here. My flat is slightly warmer now than it was this time yesterday, with a similar outdoor temperature and more cloud. I'd rather have a hot breeze coming in than no breeze at all!

Re: Tropo NL

DAB has gone crazy! French, Dutch, German and even Norwegian stations are listed, although NRK isn’t strong enough for audio.

Several Belgian transmitters at full RDS and unshiftable on the car radio while driving around town.
It was the same here just after 4pm.

Re: Continental DAB 26/6/18

My portable DAB radio is normally quite good at picking up foreign signals during strong tropo, but nothing so far today. Netherlands are blasting in on FM though.

Re: Bit of a tropo goin' down

Mainly UK things for me when I last checked. But I also had strong signals from Lille and average signals from Germany/NL/Belgium.

Re: Dutch Mega-Tropo

D'oh, I didn't check the radio or this forum last night, and this morning I was listening to a podcast until the last minute before I had to get out of the car, but I did notice the Netherlands seemed strong.

It had mostly gone by the time I checked at around 16.30.
