The weather in Colwyn Bay has been quite rough this morning and it must be bin day in some parts of the area as I've driven past quite a few of the empty green stacker bins which have been blown across the roads.

People often talk about the extremes of weather that we are having now and despite what Donald Trump may say about Global Warming being "fake news"   we know from the scientists and the News that this is actually happening.    We can also see for ourselves, especially older people like me can see that local conditions like wind and sea levels and storms are getting more extreme.
I've attached three photos below which I have attached many many times before and it gave me food for thought.

Photo No1 was taken about 1960
Photo No2  was taken in 1988  ( but was like that in 1992 also )
That is roughly 28 years +  between both photos

Photo No 2 again taken in 1988
Photo No 3  taken in 2019
That is roughly 31 years between photos 

Is that a sign of an acceleration of Global warming or  a catastrophic clanger by the CCBC?

As much as CCBC would like to blame Global warming for the West Shore mess, I think it is just bad planning, I would like to see Trump face to face with an Australian crowd and tell them Global Warming is fake news, my own views on GW are whether natural or man made, we have to act now, and lower our contribution before it is to late.

The storm is looking bad here in Colwyn Bay but other parts of N Wales seem to have had in worse and there is another 24 hours to come of this bad weather

The UK is set to bask in balmy conditions as temperatures warmer than Greece and Spain are expected this weekend.

Forecasters are predicting that the mercury could rise to 20C on Sunday - warmer than the 15C forecast in Athens and the 18C expected in Malaga.

The UK remains in a partial lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak, so people wishing to enjoy the warm spell will have to make do with spending it in their gardens or on their daily exercise outing.

People have been urged to avoid all but essential travel while the pandemic continues.

The warm weather will be tempered, however, by strong winds in North Wales, with gusts reaching 50mph in some places.  refDP

With you there Hugo. We have just lit the fire, crazy in August.

Heavy rain, southerly gale so the garden is taking a real battering. Weather up here has been much cooler this year after a lovely May so things are just coming out and then this happens.

Around 20 years ago climatologists forecast the UK would see a shift towards milder winters, wetter and windier summers and more periods of extreme heat for short spells. If we don't have any snow this year it'll be around seven years since we last saw it.

Our metal garden furniture has just blown over as have some of the large garden flower pots so I've had to put everything on the floor to save further damage.     It's just extremes of weather at the moment
At least I don't live on the West Shore and get sand blasted, it must be awful there today

Saturday won't be too bad, but Fri, Sun, Mon and Tues could be uncomfortable. Biggest problem today is humidity. 64% indoor and more than 80% out.

There is a video on FB of the sand blowing. You expect camels round the next corner !
West Shore was exceedingly busy this afternoon, despite the sand !

Interesting site. Made me a little doubtful though when investigating local things that I was informed that the Grand Hotel had a pool !
