    All those innocent people ,I cry for you all ,and a thought on the amount of people affected ,parents ,children brothers and sisters etc etc it must run into hundreds if not over the thousand , we have a beautiful planet ,how can intelligent human beings be so filled with hate ,not just this EVent but all acts of killing . Would be great IF something good comes of this event ,heres hoping .
  2. Very interesting day to come for us storm watchers , probably mid afternoon onwards fir any storms down here in Somerset ,but yesterday afternoon saw a good bit of action [very localised ]which just suddenly flared up from a very small area on the Radar ,best of luck gang .
  3. Afternoon all ,yesterday was a great day here in parts of my area [Somerset ] torrential rain and several overhead thunder claps . my garden looked great with loads of bedding plants in bloom ,well now they look tatty and broken as the force of the rain hit them hard ,well lets hope for some action later and perhaps some late evening storms to light up the sky ,heres hoping Gang .
  4. will be very interesting if that mass of action does make it to our shores ,fairly confident it could but seems to be very slow moving and i,m at great pain to how far north and west it will get ,heres hoping but my kneck of the woods ,somerset would need a good throw of the dice ,lets hope that some of us get some good action tonight ,cheers .
  5. we had a very short lived cloudburst this afternoon on west mendip ,neighbour who was out clearing his gutter said he heard distant thunder ,gone pretty chilly here now ,despite the showers not a bad day ,cheers .
  6. Afternoon ,can confirm distant Thunder ,but not sure what direction cell is ,looking at sky probably south of Bristol i,m 6 miles east of Weston , looks like more general rain into our area about 8pm ish , take care all .
  7. Same here ,brilliant start to the day, those not working like me Enjoy as next couple of days look rather blowy wet ,welcome back the Atlantic ,gave my lawn a cut tuesday ,birds took nearly all of the grass cuttings to build nests ,also Queen wasp arrived up our shed [gave me the shivers ]AS other poster pointed out somewhere ,radar looked impressive here yesterday but not much fell ,cheers .
  8. Would be great if some of us could see some white stuff overnight ,probably with a good bit of hight would be the best quess . But real concerns for the strength of the wind and direction ,any trees already weak could be uprooted and i dont think it will take massive gusts ,and potential is certainly there . a night for radar watching if ones up to it , shame its not all 6 weeks back ,take care all ,got a feeling in my water [thatchers cider ]that next winter will be the holy grail of winters , best of luck for tonight ,at least we do have some heavy precipitation which should help ,sausage bap coming up cheers .
  9. Afternoon all ,I have been popping in most days for a good read .some interesting charts in the further outlook if its wintry weather you are looking for ,but before then some mild in the forecast ,lets hope that synoptics for a good lowland snow fall come together in the outlook it is getting late but theres every possibility but i,m sure it will take a good deal of luck . well i got my fix early today ,nothing settling but definate magical flakes falling to greet the morning ,take care all cheers
  10. Afternoon ,just been out with old friends, meal plus a thatchers gold ,crikey blowing a gale here earlier . just noticed on radar a nice area of something developing across east wales moving in this direction ,weather warnings being put out for many areas today ,shame we arent back four weeks or so but does look like higher ground could see the white stuff fingers crossed ,cheers all .
  11. Fantastic post ,sums up winter for me too ,must get my ears syringed ready for next winters Model discussions ,here we are End of Meteorological winter and some good charts on offer today ,cheers .
  12. Good evening Gang ,i,v not posted in quite awhile and my Towel is still In . Things looking very good for cold and Snow fall chances in further outlook Ok its very nearly spring but the weather can deliver given good synoptics and charts currently showing the possibility although at odds with each other but all show cold cyclonic conditions .we will i feel need good precipitation rates a good source of cold air some good 850 temperatures and a fair share of luck depending on your particular location .Lets hope gang after this very long virtually snowless mushy windswept and certainly wet for many winter, we can all get something falling from the sky this early Spring , Stellas all round cheers
  13. Yes i will be flicking my Halogen light on IF any sleet snow arrives ,more so out my back garden as it does not effect neighbours so much ,setting up garden furniture [for photo me hopes ] come thurs morning . going by past events with similar synoptics ,i,d say still very hard to forecast ,we need some good precipitation around ,slow moving system ,and some good or fair luck ,but certainly i,d say a good chance ,just love the landscape with snow around .cheers .
  14. Good morning ,The cold is in [hooray] so something to be happy with . looking at all current charts and Data we will i feel be having an interesting and nail biting Model output Discussion and i,m sure plenty of twists and turns . Next weeks action currently shown tues/wed will probably go down near to the wire ,Fax charts eagerly awaited for finer detail . Very briefely [if only weather presenters had more air time ,i,m pretty sure that would save a lot of confusion for many ]question ,at what time frame was tonights tomorrows snow showers pushing in from the east forecast ,i,m pretty sure it wasnt that long ago ,my point the weather later next week may be totally different to what we currently expect . great forum ,chins up gang its not over yet cheers
  15. A big thank you for that information ,this must be the top weather forum around ,exciting times and plenty of interesting synoptics ,i,m pretty sure if tv weather presenters had far more air time which at one time I wrote to bbc about we would not need the web so much ,perhaps its best that we dont get any more info as this would takeaway the hunt a bit .cheers .
  16. yes all very frustrating ,at least we are looking at Potential over coming week or so ,and given that things at the week range seem to present themselves all of a sudden i,m hoping we can get lucky . i personally have Not given up on this week end just yet as its 48 hrs away or so ,at least next week cold air will hopefully be in place to our east and south east . So best of luck to all those that get the magical white stuff ,and i,m sure there will be some ,Fax charts should be interesting ,catch you all later cheers
  17. HI ALL ,just had steady sleet with proper flakes of snow although wet snow ,sun back out but something setting up across west wales ,certainly more wintry and more i hope to come .
  18. Just gone very black towards the west ,no wind here ,possibly some hail or sleet inciming i hope . this weekend shows promises but got a feeling we will need plenty of luck ,forecasters edging their bets so i feel that is sometimes good news .cheers .
  19. Very windy here on mendip but winds not as strong as gusts last night . I suppose stronger winds are expected over lunch time ,i remember back during burns day storm the winds seemed to pick up very suddenly and lasted a couple of hours ,Snow chances more i think come this weekend but we need everything to fall right for us ,but you never know lows a bit further south colder 850s and we could get some fingers crossed .
  20. like to report that one hell of a shower just passed here ,rain torrential with gusty winds but only lasted minutes . we have been lucky so far this winter here on west mendip but tomorrow looks a fowl day ,although trees are not in leaf i can remember a large tree being felled in the burns day storm and the noise of that still sticks in my mind now ,take care all .
  21. Some very interesting watching coming up ,and still time for our holy grail ,but very frustrating i know . Would like to thank frosty and all others for their interesting in put over the winter so far .cheers .
  22. Deflating yes ,but maybe that higher pressure over the far north may just may send lows later in its modelling further south . IT does seem though that rain fall totals will continue ,and possible named storms ,damn it i need my fix ,chins up gang still time left ,interesting model discussion
  23. Come on gang ,fall in line and act like a team ,we possibly have some interesting model discussion coming up . give it a few days and the charts could be very wintry ECM rolling out soon , relax and enjoy our very frustrating hobby """ cheers .
  24. Been watching charts and studying weather for many a year ,current output looks very interesting but as others have pointed out the carrot is usually right out in longer range . but looking at todays output what is going on in the northern hemisphere is very unusual including the last several years ,this is where i have my Straw clutch ,we still have frigid arctic temperatures so i,m pretty sure somewhere down the line our time will come ,looks like the fair possibility now of seeing named storms into february as well ,i,m pretty confident that by the end of next weekend we will have a huge trough to our east but what follows it across from the west is still uncertain ,unless of course it manifests itself from the north ,if widespread snow does come in the uk including south of M4 i shall be cracking open those STEllas ,hang on gang its still just about January february can be brutal ,Gfs out soon we still have frigid arctic temperatures as in the polar regions .of course not at present in the uk .
  25. I realy liked this mornings ECM run ,ok the best charts were the last couple and so tonight we realy want to see these charts come a bit closer . taking in what is available on the net further outlooks SSW s etc and of course our professionals down at exeter i,m keeping my hopes up for maybe after next weekend ,but i,m ready for a fall as this hobby is full of let downs if you are chasing your dream synoptics . Gfs now rolling out and soon the main models will be setting out their thoughts ,we have had a sniff of the Arctic lets get plastered ,cheers gang catch you all up later .
