  3. Where's the best place on here to add monthly stats from my weather station?

  4. Just had a nice heavy snow shower in Scarborough....At last! :)

  5. Worst storm surge for 30 years expected tomorrow on the East Coast according to environment agency. Yet the news headline is about Nigella Lawson?! Seriously! http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/news/151065.aspx

      It's a joke that the Lawson saga is headline news full stop. Shame on the BBC - becoming more and more like a tabloid.

      I thought that...a policewoman gets shot and the main headline was about a TV chef's drug taking history.

      yep she must be a preety good cook because she is all over the news down here too

  6. How does the lightning detector work? Just seen 10 strikes to the North of Scarborough. Closest storm is up toward Newcastle. Nothing near on radar or lightning detector.

  7. Wow, Another great storm, White over with hail and frequent lightning. Didn't cover a big area on't radar but it was an intense little bugger!!

  8. Frequent heavy showers here in Scarborough, 32mm's in the last 24hrs with more lined up...

      How much did you get in 2010? Parts of the NYM got nearly 50 inches in 2010!!

    3. PMPhotography


      Aye, 3-4 inch at any one time in 2010. 4 miles inland at Ayton you could double that and a bit more.

  11. -9.1Cmin here in Scarborough! Brrrrr!

  12. Awesome snow today. started at 11.30 and just stopped now! 5 inches and town brought to a standstill. Pics in gallery! :)

  13. Sums it up perfectly. 30 seconds in and you'll understand!!

  14. It's snowing pretty decently here in Scarborough with a covering on the roads. Didn't expect it being so close to the coast!

  15. Just had a phone call from the BBC asking if they could use my photographs i took today! Hmmmm OK then!! :)

  16. Camping next Friday and Saturday. Do I risk the tent or try and hire one of these eco pod things for warmth and shelter? Charts don't look too bad but Meto outlook sounds awful. Any suggestions?

    1. Paul


      I'd go for a pod!

  17. Iv'e been seeing some strange flashing in the sky tonight for the last couple of hours. It's a crystal clear sky. Just cycled to the chemist along the coast road and saw frequent flashes over the North sea. Checked the radar and looks like there's a storm about 100 miles out to sea. I'm amazed at how far the light has travelled from the lightning. quite an impressive sight!!

    1. PMPhotography


      Oh and quite a low strike count on the radar. Iv'e seen about 10 flashes in the last half hour!

  18. Just checked MO forecast for 11th July here in scarborough. It shows constant heavy rain icon from 22.00 tonight till 04.00 on Thursday morning! Max temp 13C! Feels like 11C! SCORCHIO! ;)

    2. Gorky


      I wouldn't be surprised if almost all of that rain was between 7:15 and 7:30. It was falling off the roof like a waterfall when I got up!

  20. This is not good, woke to a crash of thunder, still thinking it's midnight it's that dark. Stuck my head out of the window and the gardens flooded and road is a river.

    1. Gorky
