I haven’t seen actual direct sunshine in about 4 days
I love rain!
Huh, we're right at the bottom of the eleven year cycle now. Where does 35 years come into play?
You can see my natural skin colour. I'm pure white under that tan!
I'm not a fan of the rain, but I'm glad it's only been 10C-16C this June. June 2018 and June 2017 were 8-week-long heat waves of 30+ C and that got old pretty quickly. At least if it's 10C and you're too cold then you can just put on a coat. If it's 30C and you're down to 1 layer (or in office clothes), then you're stuffed.
It's been a miserable June, I wasn't planning on going away until August but I'm going to have to squeeze in another trip in July if it stays like this.
It's been on the front page of the Beeb for the last few days
Almost middle of winter here, still a comfortable 17 degrees outside
The projection is for the next solar cycle to be the quietest for a very long time.
EDIT: Though seems some differing opinions on that.
Opinions do vary as to what cycle 25 will bring but we're not out of 24 yet! I still don't get where the 35 year comment come from though.
I don't mind rain but its the cold that's doing my head in.
It has rained everyday for weeks top temp was 15c. I hate the cold.
theres the 10-14 yr cycle the theres the 400-500 yr cycle .. the sun gets hotter (1960-1998) then it go's into a minimum ..
last one was Maunder Minimum 1645 to 1715.
theres also a 1000 yr cycle
Pretty sunny here is Spain for the last 2 weeks. Not as hot as it was this time last year though.
It was very dry down here before all this rain, we certainly needed it.
This for me too. Hate the heat, especially when working where our air con isn't great.
Much prefer it at the moment, can actually sleep at night. Last year was horrific, drowning in my own sweat day and night. Everything is so green outside too - it was all mostly dead this time last year.
When I am night fishing and it rains I sleep like a baby lol
Sleep like a Baby? So you wear a nappy and pee and poop with abandon?
been good walking weather tbh and great for the garden ,went down to the fal river ,nice sunny spells
Looks and feels more like late October/November out this morning. Thick wet damp mist here.
Perfect for me this morning. Woke at 5am to get a quick ride in before work, lovely out there.
I didn't realise people had been studying the sun and logging temperatures long enough to establish 1000 year cycles.
