  1. Good storm in Leeds in May 2009 - I remember it well as it occurred at night (a rare occurrence nowadays) - well, convection started in the afternoon, the storm then appeared by late evening and continued into the night. http://youtu.be/b7rn2hLh5fU

    August 1992.

    It was a very cool summer month at Leeds Weather Centre with an average maximum of 19.2C, but it was not exceptionally wet, with 71.9 mm of rain.
  3. I see way more snow than thunderstorms, definitely, thunderstorms were my favourite type of weather a few years ago though because they occurred so frequently it seems, but now I hardly see any.
  4. Not a single overhead storm here last year, truly appalling, never had a year so bad for storms in my entire life. Saw some good storms in the vicinity though, one particular storm affected most of Leeds but this little area on the eastern outskirts totally missed out! Literally a few miles west and there was an absolute deluge. I like to think of it as nature's way of balancing things out - I do quite well for snow, so I can't do well for thunderstorms, too (straws are tightly clutched!). Ah, well, it can only get better, I suppose. Doesn't help that I've already missed out on a few thundery downpours though.

    July/August 1990

    The temperature reached 34.4C at Leeds Weather Centre on the 2nd, 33.2C on the 3rd, with an overnight low of 19.4C. I'd like to see a repeat, purely from a meteorological interest point of view, as opposed to actually enjoying such temperatures.

    The phenomenally wet Autumn of 2000

    I don't recall this event for any particular reason, the stats suggest it was very wet, but for here at least, I see no very strong winds, certainly nothing unusual. Now, if you want to see a proper wind storm, just look at February 1990 with wind gusts of 98 mph at Leeds Weather Centre (surely the highest of any English city?)

    North American Weather (U.S.A & Canada)

    A shame for me, and anyone else who was looking forward to a historic blizzard, so you can save your lecture about people disliking snowfall/snowfall causing problems for someone who cares.

    North American Weather (U.S.A & Canada)

    Started as snow in NY but appears to be raining, which is a shame.
  9. 38.4mm for January, most of which was snow melt.
  10. Didn't even realise that my 'predictions' for both Jan and Feb are exactly the same..

    Atlantic Storms 2013

    Loving this turbulent period of weather - certainly makes up for the lack of snow, very little beats going outside onto an open field with the gale force winds buffeting you (or am I just a nutter?!). LBA peaked at 63mph yesterday.

    Atlantic Storms 2013

    I would like that storm to position itself over the Grampians.

    Atlantic Storms 2013

    Loving the look of these charts, Liam! It's been too quiet for the past few months, and 2012 as a whole, whereas 2011 was dominated by gales.
