  1. I'm curious does a stalling hurricane weaken due to lack of energy or if conditions are perfect. It will sit over that source all day long?
  2. Its travelling too fast for any mounts. I see they have one on the top of the flight deck panel. Impressive equipment that's for sure. Unreal footage. Best to watch it all.
  3. That's some pretty big balls! Unreal flying. https://www.dvidshub.net/video/706072/us-air-force-reserve-hurricane-hunters-fly-through-hurricane-dorian
  4. Yeah that is mental in itself. It's all possible, another GSM coming up.
  5. As a qualified pilot, that's some roller coaster. Imagine having to do it multiple times per day - presumably they get used to it. Wouldn't want to sit in the back of that aircraft!
  6. I've been doing some nights (finishing at 4am) and the daylight is really drawing to a close. But I seem to remember how quick winter went, and it was soon June 21st. This winter will probably not be any different, although I suspect we might be in for something more seasonable Nov-Jan, and I don't mean snow. But we are well overdue a wet and wild period.
  7. Just had lightning looking West of London light up the sky. Caught my eye.
  8. Thatll be verified via satellite before that's issued too. Some will be weather reports from satcom enabled aircraft.
  9. Yes. FL = Flight Level on a standard pressure of 1013hPa. So roughly 42,000ft or about 8miles.
  10. Well here is something of interest. It was literally just issued. TOPS of FL420, that's pretty much on par with some of the stuff experienced in Central Africa and the Gulf. Incredible!

  11. 37.7 °C has been recorded at Kew Gardens and Writtle, Essex. My money is on these two doing 38.7°C.
  12. In terms of locations that have no cloud at the moment. There's definitely an area of likely hood. Windy is awesome by the way!
  13. I wonder what the chances are of multiple stations breaking the UK record. That in itself would be more interesting.
  14. 35°c at London City Airport and Heathrow Airport. Cambridge Airport at 36°c
  15. You literally are not far off. These storms are moving at 45-50knots (51-58mph) and with tops of FL380.
  16. Nevermind that, who's the Netweather Members camping on the beach haha!
  17. I managed to get a good fly through those cells before they became very active. They tracked from Elstree along towards Essex, literally no turbulence and was smooth as anything. The cell after this lot though became a Heavy TSRA and was pretty bumpy that I had route further away from it.
