  1. Past hour
  2. Looks like next weekend will be a good day for storm chasers in the UK then. They could be seeing their first proper storm outbreak this year.
  3. Global Glacier Mass Loss During the GRACE Satellite Mission (2002-2016) https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/feart.2019.00096/full
  4. Yes indeed. Just forecasting isolated showers now for tommorow. Beginning to wonder if we will ever see any meaningful rain here in the capital.
  5. This video captures perfectly the frustrating nature of that storm system. Amazing watching it approach - frequent lightning - but I remember the rain was so intense around our area that night, and the lightning frequency seemed to drop significantly once the storm got close. IIRC it never really seemed to go overhead, rather it formed an active band over East Sussex and travelled NW into London. A fantastic video nonetheless, expecially enjoyed the start - fantastic watching the huge flashes approaching over the sea - but I remember being really disappointed with how that worked out for the central south, and the rain made any photography almost impossible. Sadly one of the only big events we got last year... here’s hoping this summer can redress the balance?
  6. Good persisting signs of "summer warmth from south" don't want to jinx it by using the plume word just yet.
  7. Maybe not standpipes (though I seriously think a hosepipe ban is likely), but the following would suggest that things are bad here in East Anglia: https://www.fwi.co.uk/arable/crop-management/irrigation/drought-measures-increasingly-likely-farmers-warned
  8. Most western nations seem to experience that disconnect to one degree or another, but I do think the UK is one of the worst for people losing connection with nature and farming.
  9. Coming along nicely ... June as it stands looks primed to be a decent month, perhaps some unsettled spells but in the main, dry and warm.
  10. Today

  12. Friday 31 June - Sunday 9 June Cool in the north and still rather mixed for many on Friday, with cloud and rather humid conditions in central and southern areas will continuing to push northwards, accompanied by occasional rain and drizzle. Into the weekend, pressure is expected to build to the south or southeast of the UK, with any rain then becoming confined to northwestern areas and more in the way of dry weather establishing itself. For many parts into the following week, we should then see a fair amount of dry weather with some sunshine and the potential for temperatures to trend upwards, with increasingly warm conditions likely at times. However, during early June, there are also signals for occasional bouts of more unsettled weather, perhaps in the form of heavy thundery showers. Monday 10 June - Monday 24 June Whilst confidence is low throughout this period, the most probable trend for the middle two weeks of June is for a relatively settled weather picture across the UK. Whilst this may bring spells of dry and often sunny weather, warmer day time temperatures may occasionally trigger heavy, possibly thundery showers. However there still remains a risk of areas of low pressure bringing longer spells of rain across the UK at times, perhaps with some stronger winds. Temperatures will be near normal or warm overall for the time of year. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast
  13. What a difference a year makes. This time last year we watching developments over France. My video and cheap plug for my YouTube channel @Flash bang flash bang etc, that promise is providing I can get a pass from work. If so, the more the merrier ✈🌩. Will be last minute of course. Europe lacks the up to 8 day ahead storm forecasts that the USA get courtesy of NWS, sadly.
  14. I think there's a disconnect between crops struggling to grow in fields and all those goods that magically come out of thin air, down at the local Tesco? But, hey, so long as we can keep washing the Saharan dust from our shiny, black 4x4s, everything'll be okay...
  15. After a wet start most of the heavy stuff has cleared some sprinkles through the afternoon probably fairly breezy tho and a lot cooler compared to Friday
  16. From recent viewing I think the Alps have had well over average snowfall this May, Someone good with links can confirm this, but feel spring arrived very late in the Alps this year. Esp on the higher slopes even the Edlewissespitze cam I normally view its only really just been cleared this year for the summer.
  17. People ignore it when i'm realistic, so I might as well try hyperbole!
  18. The FV3 (great model!) ends with some scorching potential down over Spain, Portugal and France! It does, however, take an altogether more phlegmatic approach to things, when compared to its older sibling?
  19. An exaggeration there - not even a host pipe ban in EA you not going to be using standpipes by July ... !!
  20. Been saying just the same for months now,unfortunately its not looking good at all. Quite a few on here don't seem to grasp how bad it really is.
  21. Bar any late changes Coventry City will be playing their home games next season at Birmingham City next season
  22. Record May snowfall sees Mammoth ski resort in California announce it will remain open into August. https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-mammoth-snowfall-record-20190524-story.html The snowfall has already topped May 2015’s record of 28 inches, further adding to the enormous dump of powder that Mammoth has received. A total of 489 inches have accumulated at the main lodge, and 715 inches have been recorded at the summit. The ski resort’s current base depth is between 90 and 155 inches.
  23. Yes an interesting evolution on GFS...period between 144 and 168 seems to be pivatol... room for upgrades on EC in this timeframe.
  24. According to some of the Netweather geniuses, I'm supposed to be enthusiastic about a summer that might be hotter and drier than last year. Here's a hint - if I wanted to live in a $%&8"$ desert, I'd move to one!
  25. Long way off folks so caution required.... But the 6z ending is just fabulous!! I said I hope my Northern neighbours can get a little of the action... And here it is... +12 uppers in the far North.... In the words of Bernard Matthews.... .. Bootiful.....
