  1. Hi gang ,having been in this sort of synoptic situation or similar many times , i feel that once we get to 10pm this evening it will become more clear as to areas that could see or not see any storms ,at the moment i am expecting very good lightning displays , and hopefully some localised mega storms .but its going to be a waiting game ,remember how things can suddenly develope , hope you all get to enjoy ,cheers STellas all round.
  2. Hi gang ,here on west mendip ,winscombe ,we have torrential rain ,its been non stop for 30mins .cant hear any thunder but there may be some around rain very noisy .would think that todays weather will become very newsworthy .without getting too technical the Atmosphere is primed , so dont take any forecast for any location as gospel, look at radar ,and satellite, the sun is now at its prime ,hope you all get in on some action .sausage baps all round STella cheers .s on ice ,
  3. Hi gang ,just had a very hvy shower ,no thunder but torrential rain for about 30 seconds, looking good tomorrow for many ,and interesting come late r tomorrow and Thursday, looking forward to tonights updates and met office tomorrow morning, stay safe ,cheers and STellas all round .
  4. Hi gang ,i am eagerly awaiting just 10 mins of window rattling thunder , just had a hvy downpour ,looking good on radar but with gaps between the line of activity heading my way .hope you are all ok ,i am still isolating as vulnerable , but may venture out for a walk soon .Roll on late evening storms ,forked lightning, thunder bolts, soot down the chimney ,and being able to read a book with the amount of continuous lightning, and of course all this will be watched whilst eating sausage baps with brown sauce, think i need a lay down , best of luck gang with your storms STellas all round .cheers .
  5. Good evening gang .I have been lurking around .its now 10 weeks of isolation for me being vulnerable ,but great that my lady friend as been here with me .well todays weather as blown my runner beans over ,they are in pots .well looking at current charts no heatwave, and in the further outlook medium some heat generated rain .Do i want a long hot summer !! ,No Thanks ,that in itself will give all of us Grief on top of grief . Thanks for all of those posters who have kept this forum going ,Clap Clap , take care all ,cheers .
  6. Hi Gang ,certainly some welcome rain for some this week ,cooler just to remind us that its only mid Spring ,but a signal for a warm up again later in the extended charts .Right gang i havent posted much recently but have been a Lurking reading daily .I am classed as Vulnerable, and I'm isolating at home with my new lady friend. The weather since lockdown as been a great help ,with great days in the garden ,unbelievable at 6am in the mornings ,no contrails ,just the odd one late morning usually from Philadelphia or new york area. earlier this week several military planes flew overhead, stay safe gang ,Stay at Home , and If you have any crack open a STElla ,cheers .

    They all scratched.
  8. Hi gang ,yes its great that we May get some nice spring weather during the days .I am isolating so hopefully i can sit up the garden and soak up a but of sun .we all said that the charts would look a bit wintry come spring ,regards high pressure , but far important things are on the table at the moment. Great to read all your posts ,take care all ,cheers .
  9. Hi gang ,just to say i am around and reading the forums .Is there a mini beast crawling towards the uk , something LURKING in some of the long range charts, hope all are keeping well , catch you up later cheers .??.
  10. Hi gang ,here on west mendip the rain as eased off. But the wind as certainly increased, probably touching 50mph just up the hill a bit behind me the trees are realy fancing around .looks like interesting synoptics overnight and up till early afternoon sunday here in the west country .If it was severe snowy weather i would be up all night ,but with my window facing west of south west i will hear it , sausages tonight with onions gravy ,mash and loads of veg ,i only have sausage Baps once a week now ,bring on the snow in March and i may have them twice a week, cheers all ,take care .
  11. Hi gang ,just had a very intense shower ,thunder one clap ,hail and possibly a gust of wind on a par with yesterdays gusts .looking at radar some of these cells look Angry ,my location is west mendip, cheers .
  12. Certainly looks like a stormy spell setting in next weekend, i expect models to start firming up on this soon. Lets just hope that lows dive to our south ,we all need something wintry ,the hunt for cold continues ,cheers all .
  13. Hi gang ,realy hoping tonights ECM Run continues the prospects of a cold shot next week .we have Met office now on board as well ,but at 7 days range details will change , the trouble being where will the High pressure take up residence, and will there be an escape of bottled up cold from the Arctic to benefit the uk for us coldies .certainly our best shot this winter , STELLAS ALL ROUND, cheers gang .
  14. Good evening fellow team Mates .Its been a long frustrating winter So Far ,but i think there is a hunt coming up ,ok i am refering to ECM , And whats possibly going to happen in the upper Atmosphere re SSW , I like the last 2 frames of the Ecm ,that could start the ball rolling . Probably won't finish quite like the ECM says ,but who knows this time next week we could all be staring down the barrel of some nice cold wintry weather .so chins up , toys back in prams we have some wintry weather incoming for some, and remember ,its bone chilling cold to our far north .given the right synoptics it will flood south , we will welcome it with open arms, GFS soon, pub run so expect some fun .I'm on a diet so no sausage baps tonight , Rack of ribs with chicken wings and home made scallops, brown sauce for scallops , plus plum tomatoes .Back to the chase then gang ,cheers.
  15. Would be great to have ,cold high pressure, every one seeing a decent snowfall, sliders ,channel lows ,polar lows forming and moving south across the backbone of the UK, and of course some lake effect snow .lets hope IFF a good SSW does occur we can get it to fall in our favour. Great posts , thanks for all the information and charts , no ones posted on model discussion for 4 hours ,desperate times ,cheers gang .
