absolute scorcher !

Post by cordyman » Sun Jul 03, 2011 11:27 am

So the weather this week has been incredibly settled and getting hotter and hotter each day. Was already 20 at 10am this morning.

Very gentle breeze, clear skies with a few whispy clouds and washing dried on line in 15 minutes!

Is there benefits of you being in Brazil? You need sun to boost your system for winter.

Come home Nig.

Winter here is usually relatively dry and pleasant.
I just saw the news on tv and its a shocker. Remeniscent of the UK last winter, tonight is forecast to see record lows in south Brasil. The all time record is -18c but they say tonight it will be -20C in places. Most of the tablelands will be between -7C and -10C which in many places will be record lows.

Will these lows of -10 affect the palms in those areas?

I've just come back from Milton Keynes and the weather is considerably warmer up here than down there.

Gotta love that!

:DD

I think a lot of native palms will suffer defoliation tonight , some of the non-native cultivated species will be killed. Phoenix roebelinni and Archontophoenix are common because even when it goes to a normal low of -4C they burn and recover but this will kill them I think.
Most natives will recover because the cold is unlikely to stay for a long time.

For anyone wanting to know more local temps and current temps around the UK or world see http://www.hardytropicals.co.uk/forum/v ... =19&t=3219

Nigel I think I'll start a topic on the weather forum, as we are still told Warming is occuring, but all continents are recording record cold in their winter over the last 3 years. Something does not add up icon_scratch.
Best regards
