Another Weekend in Lockdown

Another weekend in lockdown and things in Ynyslas were pretty much the same as they have been every weekend lately. The beach was looking lovely in the sunny spells. The torrential downpours were impressive in their own right. At one point on Sunday afternoon the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station was reading a rain rate...

Scorchio Surf Ski

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far according to the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station at 24.8ºC. We broke that today though with 26.7ºC – scorcher! It’s not a record for the month of May in Wales, but it’s not far off. It was such a nice day that I just had...

Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station

The weather station in our back garden now has a 2nd online home right here on A Simple Life of Luxury. It is hoped that it that will make it more accessible to locals and visitors alike. I have been running a weather station that uploads live data every minute from Ynyslas to the web...

Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis

It looks as though we are about to be hit by another storm. Storm Dennis is following hot on the heels of Storm Ciara. There is quite a lot of flooding locally and a fair bit of damage was done along the seafront in Borth and Aberystwyth but for the most part the sea defences...

Earning the Frosty Badge!

Brrrr, that was a chilly frosty one. Minus 4ºC on the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station when I headed out for a surf ski paddle this morning. The grass was crusty with frost, the sun was just putting in an appearance and wisps of mist were rising from the sea. Tiny waves lapped against the...

Rainfall Data The dry weather early in the year made me realise that the rainfall data that is presented on the weather station pages was a little lacking in detail. In my defence there was a...

Ynyslas Savannah

Yawn yawn… Hot, sunny and still no rain. How much longer can this go on? We’re not complaining as it’s lovely here in this weather and the beach is always calling. Barefeet and boardshorts has been the order of the day here for a while now along with at least twice daily trips to the...

The Heatwave Continues

Heatwave We’re getting used to this heatwave now. It’s once again 28.1ºC out there at the moment and it doesn’t even feel that hot now as we’ve seen temperatures up above 30ºC every day for the last week. Before that it was up into the mid to high 20’s for a while and we haven’t...

Mist & Murk

Whilst many places in the country seem to have wall to wall sunshine and summery weather, we have yet again had nothing but mist and murk with temperatures in single figures thanks to a thick sea fog . I did manage to hobble over to the beach with my surf ski for some nice waves...

After the Storm

After the crazy few days of weather thanks to Storm Emma with a healthy helping hand from Ivor, things finally quietened down on Sunday. There was still plenty of snow lying around here and there even at sea level and plenty more in the hills, but the destruction caused by the storm was clear. Storm...
