  1. Hi gang ,just got back from isle of Man lovely island, flood damage in some locations .Uk rivers falling at present but charts are showing some very wet synoptics over the coming 7 to 10 days and very interesting that the Uk is the place to be if you like  low pressure .last night was amazing crystal clear skys ,jack frost ,scraping of cars and central heating systems sending plumes of steam to make ghostly shapes .great forum and i will be about more, now i have more leisure time. STEllas all round ,and nuts for the squirrels, get stocked up on prozack  cheers gang .

    It will be quite interesting to see how the EPS goes in the longer term this morning as last evening it tracked the positively tilted Atlantic trough east to be more neutrally aligned over the UK as the ridge was shunted east,

    In the meantime I'm down to see young Sidney


    Hope we will be seeing more of young sidney .three months from now hey it could be the beast from the east ,with no food in the cupboards ,and queuing for all sorts of things , but back on topic our warm weather as predicted by todays charts will be most welcome ,cheers get the STellas out .

    Think I'm just going to sit tight in Bristol and see how the night pans out. Will definitely chase if required.

    I had a flat on Dundry hill many years ago   ,about 700 ft amsl ,great views for storms .think we need to wait till tomorrow for details  ,but some corkers very likely for many. I cant see any warnings out yet,  but expecting some later today ,cheers all   .

  7. The sun is shining here in west mendip ,although hazy .looking out towards the south there are some impressive clouds forming  , i think there will be some good storm activity later ,we are now approaching the longest day so thats on our side ,lets hope for some chimney shakers  ,where if you have soot ,it comes falling down chimney . Best of luck to all posters ,cheers legritter .


  8. This in coming storm ,i would say as the potential for damage .Track  ,speed  ,pressure and very important Timing ,just remember the great storm of 1987 ,passed across england in the early hours ,which was a blessing for some another 4hrs later and a few million people would have been out of their beds and on the roads .keep an eye on latest developements ,it could move further north or south , but please gang i personally got caught up in the burns day storm with fallen trees in front of me and behind ,so POtential ,we have been warned , certainly crazy weather ,Stellas on me ,cheers .
