What a beautiful day....

Well, that's all I wanted to say really. What a cracker! Wish we could bottle it and share it with everyone who isnt surrounded right now by bright sunshine and snow-topped mountains. Bon weekend.

Hmmm..... I've just driven from Aberdeen to Glasgow. Sunshine all the way and snow to be seen on the mountain tops. Only difference being - the temp was about 4 degrees, whereas I've just read that Perpignan hit 20.2 degrees this pm. The highest recorded for this date since 1875. As a lover of warmth, I know which snow-topped mountains I'd like to have seen today.

Enjoy!

And just as staggeringly mild a week later. The local press has - rightly - had other things on its mind. And the sign on my local pharmacy is always optimistic (26 degrees anybody?). But it must have been 20 plus or minus on 9 Jan. Is there any site which gives good backward-looking data for the last few days?

Many thanks. 29.4 degrees max on 10/01 looks a bit anomalous, though I don't speak from experience - I was on a train heading north.

Another cracker of a day today. Had lunch at the Tramontane in Port Vendres, sitting on the port in the sunshine with moule frites and café gourmand to sigh for....Life is sooooo hard! 8) 8) :lol:

We are so loving this warm weather. Since we left Ireland on Sunday they've had heavy snowfall followed by Storm Rachel! Our kids are so jealous of us! Unfortunately we only have a few days left to soak up as much sun as we can :(

It was really hot. I was gardening in shirtsleeves and had to wear a hat. That reading will be a little on the high side though as my weather station is in the sun and even though there is a louvred cover over the temperature sensor it can get to a few degrees over true shade temperature if there is no wind.

If you want really exact current readings try http://airportnavfinder.com/airport/LFMP/#com
