    On the way back to Chatteris we got caught in an almighty hail storm on the A14 just north of Cambridge, marble sized hail coming down at a torrential rate which slowed the traffic down to around 20mph with the road surface turning into a river. This seemed to be a regular occurance across the region over the past week or so. Some cracking cloudscapes again today and tomorrow looks like a repeat.

    Another day of sunshine and showers, the winds a lot lighter today so it felt quite pleasant in the sunshine.

    Another showery day and luckily the wind has eased. Got home to this though which was nice.
  4. SE & East Anglia Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/2017 onwards

    Raining hard out there now and pretty windy too.

    Plenty of heavy showers today with some close flashes of lightning. Whilst not the settled September weather we have been used to over previous years it certainly has been interesting.
  6. Hurricane Irma

    Can we please keep discussion to Irma, even if the potential carnage is on a vast and potentially tragic scale. Thankyou.

    Well there is a thunderstorm just north of Peterborough at the moment. I have a good view of it whilst i wait for the wife to finish work.

    Another pretty solid day, lots of sunshine with some cumulus floating around, little or no wind with temperatures into the low twenties. A few scattered showers over eastern parts of East Anglia but not much else with the most potent conditions over France and Belgium today with the assoicated trough.

    Well i was down in South Essex last night, slept through the entire thing. Disappointed in myself.

    Well today was pretty bad, grey and pretty damp all day with a chilly breeze. This weather can wait a month or so before it comes back again. Next few days look pretty decent bar a couple of showers.
  11. SE & East Anglia Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/2017 onwards

    Not too bad for most of the day with good sunny spells and the temperature reached 24C. But as soon as the wind veered northerly the temperature has plummetted and the usual procession of low level cloud straight off the wash has begun. The is some outbreaks of drizzle from this as well now.
  12. SE & East Anglia Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/2017 onwards

    We have hit a high of 28C, warmest day since early July. Nice to see that the best weather for the second half of this summer has come at the perfect time for most to enjoy it.... well except me who had to work today.
  13. SE & East Anglia Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/2017 onwards

    Sunny with the temperature up to 27C here. A glorious day.
  14. SE & East Anglia Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/2017 onwards

    Tomorrow is looking glorious with temperatures up a few degrees on today. 26-29C I would say is the maximum, but you never know. The warmth could hold on at least into Tuesday and possibly Wednesday in Kent. Sucks to be me in the Fens, a high of 16C on Wednesday and could be worse underneath the rain from that slow moving cold front.
  15. SE & East Anglia Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/2017 onwards

    A lovely sunny day, just a light northerly wind with temperatures up to 24C.
