  1. Something resembling sleet falling from the sky. This is the most wintry weather I have seen for a while!
  2. New record for my cheapo chlas Olsen weather station, gust of 65.2mph in the back garden. Minimal damage so far and glad I booked the day off work tomorrow (accident repair centre) as there will be claim after claim for vehicle damage. We are lucky to have some power but must be restricted as there isn't enough voltage to run the heating or anything that needs a few hundred watts. Was the perfect excuse for an afternoon in the Jolly Sailors in Brancaster. Roast, woodburner and good beer!
  3. Is there another radar worth viewing on any other sites? One of the problems of living near the East coast is that the radar coverage doesn't seem to go far beyond the coastline. It would be good to see what's actually happening further out in the North Sea to try and work out if we are likely to get any showers heading our way. Showers just appear to come from nowhere, the coverage to the North and East of Norfolk is quite poor
  4. I have to say it's been picturesque all day, the freezing fog coated everything. Hasn't been above freezing all day, if we don't get the snow at least we had a day to remember for other reasons. Our time will come.
  5. When is the next chance of snow for us snow starved in the North of this region? We've had nothing so far and it's rather depressing. My little boy keeps asking when can we build a snowman daddy? I have attached our highlight from the BBC weather app for this evening......a Dark Cloud Symbol ..
  6. From my untrained eye it looks like the yellow weather warning for snow will be completely pointless for Norfolk especially. Last night was a let down too. Bring on some proper wintry weather rather than the damp squib we've had so far!
  7. Radar seems to show the front decaying in the Norfolk area. I am yet to see a flake of sleet or snow in the Fakenham area
  8. I'm sure your time will come, I was at work near Beetley earlier and there have been cars damaged by hail around Stanfield/Brisley area. I think our most decent chance now and for the rest of Norfolk will be coming up from the channel. For anyone reading living in Norfolk with hail damage to their car, search for Paul Gotts Dent Devils, may be cheaper than an insurance claim and might make the difference between your car being repaired or written off.
  9. wind has got up here in Great Ryburgh, we had a 2 vehicles at work damaged by hailstones. Is the main course yet to come? What we have had so far has been quite significant. I worry as my other half is at a concert outside in the open watching James Arthur, always worrying in these conditions.
  10. Drifting badly on the exposed roads in this area, about 4-5cm here in Great Ryburgh but the snow is blowing off the fields. Local police advising people to keep off the roads. Rather unexpected to be honest
