February 2001 - project over for this season
January 2001 14:15 High pressure still - yet another fantastic
January 2001 11:59 High pressure continues with a totally clear
sky - a good sunset is guaranteed, and although flashing is past
the movement of the sun across the fllor and back wall at Maeshowe
will be spectacular today
january 2001 12:17 High pressure continues - totally clear - there
will be a good sunset today. Yesterday was perfect but one day
too late for flashing. Pictures will be online later.
January 2001 12:44 High pressure for the next few days is forecast.
Today we have thin cloud and quite a lot of blue sky so a sunset
and flashing is highly likely.
January 2001 14:37 good chance of a sunset today with flashing
as there is a gap in the clouds behind the Hoy Hills
January 2001 excellent sunset but no flashing
January 2001 no sunset
Jnauary 2001 13:56 Some clouds and showers, but also blue patches
today. Good forecast for later in the week so "flashing"
may be observable.
January 2001 12:53 Lovely morning but clouds again in the west.
System crashed yesterday for first time for many days. No sunset
January 2001 13:10 Another lovely sunny and calm day, but humid
and with a bank of cloud in the wst. This amy clear..
January 2001 12:53 Thin cloud and some bright patches, but a bank
of cloud on the horizon. This may clear to allow a sunset - worth
looking back at 14:45
January 2001 13:49 Rain now clearing from SW with brightness and
some blue sky - chance of a sunset
3 January 2001 12:39 Overcast and quite warm. Lovely sunrise,
and some brightness in the west. Worth checking back at 14:45
to see if there is a sunset - there was an excellent one at last!
January 2000 12:46 The snow has all gone and it is much warmer,
but overcast, so no sunset today unless the brightness in the
SW turns into clearance.
January 2000 Happy New Year - no forecast as I was at the Ba'
December 2000 13:15 Nice crisp day with some snow still lying.
Some cloud about so chances of a sunset are not very good
December 2000 13:35 Yet another lovely day with cloud in the west
December 2000 12:55 Snow showers today, but snow is wet. Some
chance of a sunset if there is no cloud behind Hoy.
December 2000 13:29 Yet another lovely day, but again there are
clouds in the west. Worth a check back at 14:40-15:00 GMT
December 2000 11:28 Beautiful sunny day with a little snow - camera
3 is still covered, but may clear when the sun comes around. Good
chance of a sunset so long as a shower does not appear. At present
there is a shower in the SW but this will pass.
December 2000 12:41 A dusting of snow - in fact the exterior camera
is covered in snow, hence the picture! Sunny and clear but clouds
on the horizon. A sunset is very likely.
December - no forecast as I was covering the Ba' - it was a nice
December 2000 13:44 Lovely sunny winter day and a sunset is probable.
Yesterday was also good, but we had dialup problems. Look back
december 2000 13:03 Wind has gone round to north and sky is clearing
so a sunset is possible today and likely tomorrow - ftp problems
again but they will be resolved before 14:30 I hope
December 2000 12:33 Another murky day with 100% cloud cover -
no sunset today. Forecast is for the wind to go round to the north
for Xmas Day and maybe some snow, so possibilty of sunsets then.
December 2000 10:55 Calm and overcast, with SSW wind, and some
brightness in the west. I will update this forecast later.
update at 12:54 Drizzle and low cloud, with Hoy Hills not visible
from Maeshowe, so quite poor prospects for today. Hoever you never
keyn as we say here. Tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday all look possible.
December 2000 12:43 SE wind and rain with falling glass. Depression
tracking through today, so no sunset but there may well be a clearance
by tomorrow, allowing a solstice sunset.
December 2000 12:38 Not very good for today, with cloud and some
rain, but forecast to clear later. Better for tomorrow.
December 2000 11:40 Another very nice sunny, dry, clear winter
day here with very good chance of a sunset. FTP problems yesterday
but the sunset fizzled out anyway. Forecast looks good for later
this week too.
December 2000 12:35 Looking very good for today with a beautiful
clear sky and sunshine - not a winter day at all.
December 2000 12:03 Overcast again today, but very thin cloud
and some brightness in the west as can be seen oun camera. A sunset
is possible today, and also tomorrow. Also a chance of aurora
tonight or tomorrow, see
Oh well - sorry everyone - but it is wall to wall grey today.
December 2000 12:41 Overcast but calm day here. Not much chance
of s sunset though. Forecast looks better for Saturday and Sunday
with a ridge of high pressure due to come over before the next
December 11:33 Stormy day with wind and rain - not much chance
of a sunset - but have a look at 14:30 anyhow to see three cameras
December 13:13 Overcast with rain today - not likely to be a sunset.
Camera has arrived and will be operational later today.
December 10:57 looking very good for today, clear and cloudless
at present. Cam1 working again. New Cam2 awaited.
December 2000 12:39 Clearing from west and looking very good indeed
for a nice sunset. Everything sunctioning fine at Maeshowe. Watch
here from 14:30GMT onwards.
December 2000 Sorry folks - completely overcast with rain so no
sunset. A nice article in the Herald yesterday though.
December 2000 16:24 Apologies for no forecast today - more important
to have systems all up and running. Overcast all day. All computers
are now online again, camera 2 will be installed as soon as received
December 2000 12:23 Not a very nice day with rain and overcast
- no sunset today. Computer down yesterday due to someone turning
off power. Will be up again on 9th December.
December 2000 12:34 Beautiful clear, sunny day. Good sunset today
is virtually certain. Zetnet seems to be down at the moment however.
Beautiful sunset yesterday.
December 2000 12:20 Weather clearing from the west, and suuny
at present, with a good chance of a sunset this afternoon. Some
cloud on horizon, but this may well clear.
December 2000 12:34 Depression passing and forecast to clear from
the west, which is already happening. A sunset is quite possible
today if the clearance is in time. The exterior camera is already
showing brightness in the SW
December 2000 12:45 Sadly after yesterday's wonderful sunset today
is totally overcast and there is no sign of any brightening in
the west. No flashing was obseved yesterday, confirming our theory
and Victor's calculations.
December 2000 12:16 Lovely morning and some possibility of a sunset,
however there is thickening cloud in the NW- worth watching to
December 2000 13:14 After a pleasant start they weather has become
overcast with a rising wind. Soory no sunset today.
December 2000 13:00 Started overcast and rainy. Now clear with
some haze, so a good sunset is in prospect today - worth watching.
Two cameras operational.
November 2000 12:40 A nice sunny day and a possibilit of a sunset.
we hope to be online later today.
November 2000 lovely day today and yesterday - hopefully this
will be what we will have in December!
