  1. Hearing lots of thunder. Sun's out. No wind. Lovely jubbly.
  2. Anyone know of Swedish Met Sites where I can find long range forecasts for this summer?

      Cheers Spurry!

  3. The sun has made an appearance here in Bristol so hopefully this will get things going.
  4. Too many on here throwing the towel in already. Or is it reverse psychology? The MO warning was valid from 4pm and we're 1 hour and 20 mins into it. Give it a chance.
  5. Tipping down but no thunder and lightning yet
  6. 24c now according to my piece of junk Netatmo Thermometer. Those cells just south of Swindon are heading straight for Bristol. Better extend my lunch break!
  7. Pretty much overcast now Fromey. I spoke too soon!
  8. Just got back from Snowdonia after climbing to the summit yesterday. Was quite the challenge with thunder, lightning, torrential rain and gusty winds, but was worth the sore body today. Managed to capture a couple of cloud shots but only clouds. Mammatus Sunday Morning and some other nice cloud formation which was moving along with a storm later in the day.
  9. Do I don't I climb the Summit of Snowdonia this Sunday? The way I see it Sunday afternoon looks like it could see storms in that area? Advice needed please. I've had this planned for 4 months.

      I'm leaving 6am tomorrow morning to pitch up my tent and assess the area before starting the climb at 7am Sunday Morning. It's a 4 hour drive so wouldn't be there by 10/10.30am.

      Part of me thinks I'm taking a risk by doing this now. The forecast was so good beginning of the week! ha!

      Karl you have potentially answered your own question ... as you have said your going to pitch your tent and asses the area beforehand 🙂 all the best

      Then again the view of the lightning would be awesome from up there 😁

  10. Supposed to be climbing Snowdon Summit this weekend. Forecast has deteriorated throughout the week for that location so it could be a wasted journey if its wet... Although as long as the climbing is done early enough to get back for any light shows, I'll be happy!
  11. I'm hoping for a repeat of April 6th/7th 2008. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1584210/April-snow-worst-for-two-decades.html I cant re-call if Bristol got anything out of this but my mind has images of some pretty heavy snowfall in a short space of time. I'm sure it was April? I was at work at the time and everything was snow covered in 15 minutes and thawed very quickly once the sun came back out. Could be wrong though...
  12. Been snowing for quite a while now. Proper snow day today and temp still hasn't gone above 0c for 3+ days! Sod winter, Spring is where its at!
  13. Snow drift central round here. Good luck to anyone trying to get to work tomorrow!
