  1. Not a bad covering in Chelmsford , considering I wasn't expecting it to turn snow (going off of met office graphics) until midnight here - glad I covered up my block paving driveway I'm halfway through finishing !! - Just got up for photo and just started settling on paving and on road now.
  2. Heavy burst of snow in Chelmsford after heavy rain !!?? - settling on cars/grass not pavements, didn't see that coming !!!!!!!
  3. Tents awning down now, went from 20 - 30mph all night to at least 50 very quickly no rain very windy, our tent still up feel sorry for others, tent rods snapped on few tents around me
  4. Still here camping in Hayle, less rain in my washing up bucket from last night than overnight rainfall last week, was a bit windy, but no damage. Should I give up looking at the weather or am right in thinking the centre of this low is further south and running along over Cornwall and south coast(explaining calmer, conditions here) ?? Edit ... just looked at Sea and it looks wild, wind picked up as well as writing. Using the following for pressure ...http://www.xcweather.co.uk/
  5. Hi, can report still no rain or strong wind in Hayle, clouded over soon after posting this morning.Had light showers on and off, just checked radar and seem to be in that dry arc on the south east of the image. 7:04 pm - hardly any wind now and very light showers (calm before the storm) ???
  6. No storms here. I Can now see 3-4 big what looks like tops of cumulonimbus a long way out to sea across the seascape. Still small cumulus approximately 2 miles at sea developing what looks like a low level/thicker cirrus type cloud around them as I write?? Directly above is virtually clear, odd bit of cloud and warm sunshine. mild pleasant breeze.
  7. Hi, sitting out on hayle beach, sun / part cloud & warm - strangely quite considering, bit of a breeze picking up, small cumulus coming in from the west, no sign of lighting/cumulonimbus, if anything the sky looks clear out at see. Going to check radar.
  8. Hi, thanks - still going to keep close eye on this.But does anybody know why bbc graphics for Hayle (cornwall)Is showing heavy rain for me tonight and wind (wind peaking at 27mph at 10:00am tomorrow- Sunday morning)Is this more of Saturday night / very early Sunday morning event for the Cornish coast ? This is a pain to watch this one, So confusing.
  9. Thanks for the welcomes, yes, born in 1976 but never fortunate to experience that summer, 2003 was the best I remember. Still here and waiting to make a decision on packing up tent. Still a lot of uncertainty with the models. Will check again in the morning. Looks like ECM & GEM are now going for the northerly route. Feeling a bit more relaxed about this, also wind charts do seem threatening,I seem to see them as isobars for some reason !! Waves have picked up a lot this afternoon - something brewing I think, hopefully a nice warm wind, 30mph gusts and some nice 6 ft waves (finge
  10. Sorry, First post on here despite watching for years.But the wind chart shown is what has prompted me. Not got great reception here as camping with wife and 3 kids on exposed coastline in sand dunes at Hayle Cornwall. Just spent first week here, and to be honest the track of this low is playing on my mind, don't think my pop up camper could take 50mph gusts ???. Is this worth packing up and ruining the family holiday or am I just panicking from reading all the worst case possibilities ? a 60% chance is not much help, when would I have a clear idea with this sort of set up and we and the best

    What a crazy day, great photos especially the snow drifts ! - We had a taste of it here in Essex, still cant get over the temperature drop, Icicles and in our case frequent "Mini blizzards" !!! - Imagine if it had kept that up all winter !
