Summertime

It’s only going to be short-lived, but it was summertime here at Ynyslas today. It was pretty chilly to start with which was ideal as I had a run session to do. I therefore got that in before it warmed up. It was nothing too exciting, just a run towards Tre Ddol and back with...

Wide Skies and Tall Clouds

There are some nice big Cumulonimbus clouds out there today. Blue skies in between the downpours and a brisk breeze, but quite mild for December. I picked a sunny interlude for a stroll down to the postbox and then back along the beach. The sunny interlude did mean that there were big clouds all around....

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...

Weather Station Updates

I’ve been making some changes to the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station pages lately. So, this is what’s new. 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...
