    I'm in the TC and there is nothing resembling snow falling here... We are about to come out of the heavy band too looking at the radar an its even looking like we might get a pause in the precipitation within an hour or so.

    Heavy rain on and off the last hour or so in Shrewsbury. To low and to west today I think (most of the precip will have passed over by the time its colder tonight I think) West of here could be game on later.

    RIP THE CNN RAILING Insane goings on multiple live streams... Unreal sustained wind speeds live on TV...

    Just got back from two weeks in the Wildschönau which was 13 days of very hot weather and the last day friday the 24th a cloudy rain cold day (we crossed the boarder and went up the Wendelstein on the Cog railway. But in the good weather days, we had some fantastic days out in Austria/Germany, Krimml Waterfalls (amazing), Berchtesgaden and a trip on the Konigsee electric boats (reminded me of Milford Sound in New Zealand), went to Achensee which was another stunning place. Went to watch FC Wacker Insbruck play a game, lovely stadium while the wife and Daughter visited the crystal world! And on the quet days enjoyed the Wildshonau and all the amazing walks that there is there including taking part in the Schatzberg March! (not ideal 6.30 am start for a holiday!). Had a great time being our 4 summer holiday to Austria in 4 years (3 in the Wildschonau, and one near the Swizz boarder). Next year looking at moving a little further to the east, east of Salzburg or somewhere between Insbruck and the Swizz Border... lots of time to plan yet... Also saw the news of the floods at Sallbach... that's where my folks go every summer... they were shocked to see how bad the flash floods were there last Thursday night! Great country, great people.... cannot recommend enough!
  7. Line of storms from the Brecons up to South Snowdonia now heading northeast... anywhere in the west midlands could be in the game this afternoon. Slow moving though....
  8. This storm is mental, hail now, still going almost 45 minutes later, T and L, strong winds.... we are getting battered. Reports of flooding arond town coming in. Best storm I can remember hitting that town for a good few years No chase required!
  9. The wind got right up during that nasty little cell that went over. Looked at Twitter to see what others reporting around town and saw this! Looks to be back building over town and down towards Bridgenorth... line of cells developing.
  10. Another storm with T and L in Shrewsbury... Heavy rain again.
  11. Can confirm that, was about 20 mins ago from a storm that passed just west of town. Another cell passed over with heavy rain but no lightening. More development in South Shropshire for us to keep an eye on.
  12. Massive storm going on here in Leamington Spa right now. Constant rolling thunder with big booms. The sky constantly alight. Torrential rain. Epic.

    All this talk of snow and here in Shrewsbury we just had an epic hail storm and lightening and thunder! Close too. Crazy.
  14. Snows picked up in Shrewsbury again after a couple of hours of nothing. Look to be under light moderate snowfall for a fir few hours year looking at the radar as it inches north. Might fragment though. Unlike yesterday, hardly any snowmelt in the dry spells, two days of low ground temps and below zero today has helped.
  15. under a band in the West that’s over Shrewsbury and north shropshire and it’s getting more intense as morning goes on. Clear on the radar grabs for the last half hour. No schools shut here but they might get caught out by this. Even if if they were shut no one would know as the shropshire council website crashed and can’t viewed! Classic.
