  1. Hi gang ,5 brilliant flashes over the last 10 minutes here on west mendip. Rain torrential , looks like a line of intense rain approaching here ,only heard the thunder twice it appears to be further east than Winscombe .probably 22 mm in the last 5 hrs or so .Tomorrow looking good for some if theres a few sunny breaks , got a gut feeling some very newsworthy weather about ,stay safe , rain now very torrential and lightning becoming frequent, cheers .

  2. Hi gang, think we are all at Boiling point, like the Atmosphere today .please beleive me from experience, any predictions from any model whether European British or Jo blogs will be struggling today to get any precise track of storms correct, rainfall and all the fireworks etc that go with it ,but certainly looking like an interesting eventful night and days to come .I think many of you will get to experience your wishes but please stay safe ,there are many thousands of our population scared of violent storms my partner included, she had her chimney badly damaged years ago  and TV was melted to a Ball .It will certainly be a Radar evening and night, cells i think popping up , well gang don't forget to take out your Tv Aerial, and do  not climb up on your roof for a better view !! .Sausage baps and brown sauce on me ,take care all ,Mother Nature The Stage is set ,cheers.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 ,

  5. 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 .

  6. 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 .

  7. 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 .

  8. 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 .

  9. Hi gang ,thats the big question every time with day 10 charts  , yes south could be Balmy or take it all further south and it could be game on for some wintry ness. So again today we have no real Boom  ,but could all change tonight at 7pm ish ,but the hunt is still on ,possibility of a cold trough setting up to our east in time for February, low 850 s and and warm sea temp some beefy snow showers PERhaps ,cheers .
