  1. Morning chaps. Model discussion in here please, there’s a thread a plenty for historical weather chat and preferences and all that kind of thing. merci!
  2. I know! He is literally a one man stormshield
  3. Raining torrentially here and some very vivid lightning, even against the daylight. Thunder woke us all up about half an hour ago, all very exciting!
  4. Had to move/hide some posts. Please can we keep this to model discussion, as oppose to a circling pit of blame where those who like heat are given a hard time, and those who prefer the cold are shouted down? It is extremely hard to keep the balance in here, in fact it's been like it all year since we had the significant cold snap. I don't think anyone here wishes the ill effect of the weather on anyone, and it's a bit poor that people feel the need to infer that if someone is talking excitedly about an extreme, then they are wishing harm on people. I am one of those who is interested in the extremes for sure, but. I don't for one second wish that anyone ends up squashed flat by an EF5 tornado. Does this make me a terrible person also? No. It makes me a weather enthusiast. If there isn't already (and I'm sure there is) then may I suggest that if there's the burning desire to debate the impacts of incoming heat/storms/whatever, then someone opens a thread for it. Thanks, please continue.
  5. Loving the updates folks, but please be careful if you are out chasing! Don't take any unnecessary risks or get distracted with your tech and then write off your car! No photo or video is worth getting squashed flat for. Usual other precautions apply (No golf courses, under trees, take shelter etc)..... I'm hoping the channel fuels these imports a bit and we see something just as it gets dark. I'm a little NW of where @Paul Sherman is and I can also confirm we have had zero rain, but lots of convection and some rumbles. Stay Safe all!
  6. Just thought I’d check the window that faces north.. some seriously rapid convection now. This wasn’t here 5 minutes ago!
  7. Less daylight = easier photography!!
  8. Looking s/sw, 31c, very breezy (woo!) heard some grumbles from the Chelmsford effort. biding my time.....
  9. Yeah I stayed put in the end. Glad I did, I’ll be out trying to find somewhere with no trees and some elevation, maybe Thorndon south or maybe down to Coryton.
  10. Yeah, I'm weighing up whether to head up the M11 and see how it unfolds OR sit tight and wait for a chance on an MCS later. Friday traffic though I was kind of spoiled on holiday, but I swear to god I will kick myself if I miss something 50 miles away this afternoon. Also after seeing the towers going up illuminated by the moonlight in the early hours, I'm considering the eclipse might be a photo op. Argh I don't know! At least it's heating up tho.
  11. The Chelmsford cell just keeps on giving! Every time I think it’s going to stop The elevated lightning delivers a crystal clear C-C. Estofex looking interesting (and in line with Nick F’s & Dan H’s forecast too). Just chatting to the folks at Essex weather on Twitter, we have a shared concern about the residual cloud pegging back the temps by lunchtime, so fingers crossed once this lot is through the sun can get going and so it’s thing. I just need to decide if I am going to try and catch the Supercellular potential to my north in the afternoon, or sit tight and wait for the MCS to come to me in the evening. <lazy chasing> but I really don’t want to be caught in Friday traffic! i really ought to go back to bed.
  12. I’m sandwiched between two cells at the moment, the one which is now to my E had some very decent crawlers on it. Both seem to be not trying very hard now though, but what IS a bit good is the Moon illuminating the cloudscapes.
  13. Met office apparently going for a 20% chance of the record being broken Friday according to guidance statement. I’ve not looked at any charts this evening though, but interesting percentage in the mix there, would love to see (as ever) what they’re seeing on MOGREPS
  14. Can you share the Chart so the rest of the readers can see? It’s really helpful to attach an image or two with commentary so we can see what you’re seeing
