Plymouth Weather This Weekend

Can anyone tell me what the weather was like in Plymouth this weekend (esp. Saturday).

I cancelled a dive trip on the back of some mucky looking forecasts on Friday morning, and now a little nagging voice in my head is wondering if I was right!

Thanks

David

Don't worry mate it was crap (can I say that?) - unless Exmouth and Torbay had much different weather you only missed being in the pub all day - rain lots of wind and generally nasty on Saturday.

Sunday on the other hand was quite pleasant although still quite lumpy in sheltered areas it was ok and the sun shone!

Better luck next time!

Good call!

It was rough - fairly torrential rain for much of Saturday and strong wind, rough sea etc. Better luck next time...

Jono,

Gazza, Had organised a weekend on the Scylla and the James Egan Layne. Nothing desparately deep or challenging, just gentle bubbling about!

All, Thanks.

David

rads,

Next time you are thinking of coming down, check out this site/thresd. I have found it surprisingly accurate.
