  1. The wind direction definitely makes a big difference in streamers and accumulations. I remember a while back getting 5 cm in Ashford but driving up the M20 to Maidstone and seeing three times this amount. If we don't get embedded troughs there could be large accumulation differences. Nothing worse than seeing a train of Cumulonimbus in the near distance dumping copious amounts of snow up the road.
  2. I was there earlier this year and the weather is simply mental.... Heavy snow showers for a day followed by 80mph winds and driving rain all day followed the next day by the heaviest fall of snow for 80 years. Love their weather.
  3. Yeah that's weird. I was just leaving Iceland last February when they had their biggest fall of snow for 80 years of 20 inches. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/02/28/iceland-turns-winter-wonderland-record-snowfall/ I was surprised the record wasn't bigger tbh.
  4. Be careful you don't get hit by one !
  5. Ashford seems to be in no mans land between the streamers to the east around Folkestone and to west over E. Sussex and West Kent
  6. Just rain here at the moment in Ashford
  7. Although I love snow I'm looking forward to popping down to Camber in the summer to see some storms coming up from France. A lot more frequent than snow but just as interesting/exciting to see
  8. Very nice.... That was an awesome storm,
  9. Just had the furthest strike east in the Channel today !
  10. Estofex Level 1 http://www.estofex.org/ ....."Current opinion based mainly on CAMs (AROME solution) is that a cluster of fast-moving storms will develop in SE England"
  11. Well Estofex showing the possibility of something for the far south east today http://www.estofex.org/ ....."Current opinion based mainly on CAMs (AROME solution) is that a cluster of fast-moving storms will develop in SE England"
  12. Just got back from Dungeness and Camber. I can honestly say I have never seen anything quite like that before. A mixture of CTG and intercloud lightning of varying colours from pink through to golden through to green. Booming thunder but sometimes almost throttled by comparison. Genuinely lightning every half a second as the main cell past up the channel. Roads flooded on the way back to Ashford. A memorable night for sure.
  13. Looking to head down to Dymchurch in an hour or so.... It's a great vantage point to see the storms coming up the Channel
  14. Wherever it's going it's going there .... slowwwwllllllyyyyy
