End of a stormy day?

It looks like that the rain we had all day here in Paphos came to an end. The Elean webcam showed a promising mood one hour ago...

Chief Cat Spotter active...

I think it is a different cat on the screenshot from Dominic's webcam a couple of days ago.

After the recent windstorm the camera moved slightly... ;)

Re: Seaweed on sea front

The old wall was not really appealing.... https://up.picr.de/42590837wb.jpg I don't think it would help if it was rebuilt. If the wind comes strong from the wrong direction, together with full moon or new moon, then a 50 cm wall would not solve the problem. Interesting is that we have recently much ...

Re: Yellow weather warning issued for storms overnight, Wednesday

I was too worried to leave the computer plucked-in while the lightning strikes were too close to my place, so I missed the first championship matches to watch....a real shame as Leipzig won against City....

Re: Storm

Just coincidence. There will be many gales that fall outside of the so-called coptic calendar, and many coptic dates that are sunny. We already did the experiment a few years ago. Before 25 years when internet weather data were not available for me, I believed what the coptic calendar told me. It h...

Re: Saturday lunchtime, sunshine and huge Barracuda...

Looks lovely as ever Max, never had Barracuda myself but one day will give it a try.Thank you for posting. 8-) It is very rare that they have Barracuda on the menu, this year I think 3 or 4 times. But if you are lucky.... Barracuda is not only tasty but also very healthy. (specially Vitamin D) http...

Re: Storm

Surely you mean that you measured 14 mm of rain; the area is immaterial and is not used by the WMO or the Met offices of any country that I know. As I am German and in Germany, Austria,Switzerland etc.. we learned at school to measure rainfall in mm/m2! Here a Google translation of the German Wikip...

Saturday lunchtime, sunshine and huge Barracuda...

Perhaps last time this year one could sit outside in the Autumn sun and enjoy fresh Barracuda, as Winter is on its way... Anyhow, they informed me that they caught a Barracuda today, but it is a bit large for one person......I said never mind, I will have it. and here we are https://up.picr.de/42578...

Re: Storm

Back to the recent rain. I measured 14 mm/m2 which was the largest amount this Autumn for me. Next Wednesday I expect more of that as we need it desperately.

Re: Early bird photos today

Views definitely worth getting up early for. Thanks for sharing. I am glad you still like these type of photos, even when I posted often similar ones in the past. On the other hand every single pic is unique as nature plays the game....The biggest problem was for me to choose from 28 exposures I di...

Early bird photos today

Luckily it was a clear early morning when I woke up and looked out of the window and realised some interesting clouds are forming at the horizon. So quick out of bed and camera in action... Just before sunrise https://up.picr.de/42556771cf.jpg Orites wind farm, 10 km away https://up.picr.de/42556778...

Weather Underground is showing a peak wind of 25kph for mid-day Wednesday, subsiding rapidly after that. Remember that weather forecasters have in the past been described as professional liars :lol: Well, it is always that people know things better...25 kph.. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Just have...

Re: Windstorm next Wednesday....

I concur. For those who prefer the archaic Beaufort scale, Wednesday afternoon will rise to Near Gale. However the bad weather will be of fairly short duration from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday evening, give or take an hour or two Wednesday Mostly sunny in the morning, becoming sunny in the after...

It is not very often that we have plenty wind in Cyprus, but on Wednesday my German forecast shows high winds with max. speed of 90 km/h. in the wider Paphos district. So hold tight and fix things in your garden which could fly away....
