  1. Right you are. Certainly a good thing, that models are signalling some cold air being ejected southwards. Even if it misses us, it’s not a bad thing in getting the continent cooled down quickly.

    Getting closer now to the south coast. Nothing compared to what’s hitting Majorca yet again. What a week they’ve had there! Been watching another incredible lightning storm on the alcudia cam

    Yes, tonight may well be a last ditch effort for some thunder, and probably the last potential plume event as 2018 draws to a close. Of course, not ruling out any beefy showers as we head further through autumn particularly in coastal areas with still relatively warm SST’s. Keeping my eye on that cluster of heavy showers with a few sferics heading up the channel.

    Seems like them storms in France are the remnants of the Mediterranean madness yesterday and last night. I was watching alcudia bay webcam last night, and it looked absolutely spectacular. For hours on end, non stop anvil crawlers from anywhere east of north and south! A shame about the devastating flooding it all caused though, which I’m sure people are aware of.

    Latest ECM shows a potential hurricane or (medicane) forming south of Italy and then slamming Crete towards Rhodes. I have a friend holidaying in Kos later this week..!

    Forgot what storm it was called back in January that brought very damaging winds across the East Midlands and East Anglia?This could be similar.

    Saturday evening into Sunday 2nd Storm

    Around 18:30 near the wash and 19:00 within the Welland, Nene and Ouse tidal reaches, and then 20:30-21:00 around Yarmouth and Lowestoft. Very worrying.

    Model output discussion - summer rolls on

    I’ll be working on Sunday until 6pm, high water should be around 7-8pm. If this does come off, I’ll be setting the camera up possibly around Kings Lynn by the river Great Ouse or further up the Norfolk coast around Hunstanton, Brancaster, possibly Wells-next-the-sea.

    GFS has been very consistent in modelling this scenario. If it’s still like this tomorrow morning, then very real attention should be paid towards this. Spring tides will be hitting their peak on Sunday! We could well be rivalling the 5th December 2013 in terms of storm surge, with no real improvements to sea defences made since then either.

    A lot can change over the winter. If we see another SSW and a sudden collapse of the PV, then it can soon change very quickly, and we have seen how rapidly the continent can be plunged into a big freeze. If we didn’t have these charts and models, I wouldn’t have ever predicted the extreme cold that hit us at the end of feb this year. I have never felt such a cold wind in all my years of living, out on a night shift on the night of Feb 28th. It was actually quite weirdly warm just days before it hit.

    Even stronger winds along the North Sea coast as it exits Yorkshire. With spring tides and peak winds during Sunday evening, it poses quite a threat with storm surge potential. I’d rather see this binned off quickly!

    Typhoon mangkhut

    Could be comparable to Haiyan or Tip. A real monster of a storm. Despite america having its fair share of devastation from hurricanes, they have it often quite easy compared to the Philippines, which got absolutely shredded to bits from Haiyan back in 2013.

    SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 26/03/2018 onwards

    Back in the UK now from a holiday in Vegas! Saw a couple of beauties in the distance in the surrounding mountain areas and off towards Arizona. The heat over there really is something else though. I will not whine about 30-31c again!!

    I decided to chase that storm that’s just hit north of Spalding! Big mistake, I thought my car was going to get smashed, hail the size of marbles came down and some magnificent CG lightning! Looks like more incoming for this area too. Heading back southbound now!

    Wow, didn’t see that coming, proper loud rumbles and torrential rain!
