  1. and if you look at the radar it looks like the first front is pivoting and heading back through cornwall, squashed from both sides
  2. north Cornwall got a pasting this afternoon. some kids had to leave school early and then bus got stuck. some teachers had to abandon their cars. wasn't forecast to be this bad

    does this mean that cycle 24 is showing signs that it's not going to be as low aS 23 and therefore 25 is going to be more active that people are thought to believe?

    I thought solar min is not until 2019 and so c25 won't start until 2019/20 ????

    Winter 2018/19

    a stopped clock is right twice a day 😁
  10. We had a lovely day here in Bude north cornwall coast snowing early this morning with a good covering. Then the sun came out with blue skies for most of the day and the snow melted. Now we have heavy snow and back to a covering again.
  11. Yes it is Bude scenes like this haven't been seen since 2010/11 amazing really to see so late in the year
  12. Cornwall at sea level!!! Amazing to see this in March!! And the worst/best is yet to come today
  13. Hi festiv, Do you know what the roads a like going into prince town and surrounding area? Cheers
  14. Please no repeat of "that ECM" a few years ago when everything was a dead cert, even down to t48 and then... well we know what. Can remember even the met, bbc etc were certain. Is this set up Any different? Are we in a better position? Or could it all go horribly wrong again?
  15. I wouldn't they're the phrase "mild sector" and "oh dear" is already being used😁😁 jerk reactions already coming out , hilarious!!
  16. I took this pic at ny local beach un Bude begining of Jan as you can see there's a 12 ft sand wall at the top of the beach its usually flat from the beach huts all the way down to the seamade from the massive waves during end of december and jan, so yes we had a stormy December/January and haven't you checked the forecast recently Hillbilly???? Feb looks to be starting off very cold indeed. So I would say Ian has been the most accurate when forecasting winter 2017/18 than any other lrf I read!
  17. So there we have it folks,after a lot of doubters and people saying in ain't gonna happen another box for Ian can be ticked. After a stormy December and Jan ( for me wnyway) after a 12 foot sand wall was produced by storm laden seas battering the southwest coast (I've lived here for 15 years and never witnessed this before) right on cue, as if by magic we have a bitter start to Feb 2018 and where's the cold coming from?? Yes, the East. Hats off to you Ian calling it almost to the day and from so far out!!! I'll tell you something if this was netweather's forecast certain people would be all over it!!
  18. Well that's an "imby comment" because in my BY it's been a hell of a stormy Jan and Feb so I reckon it's 1-1 and I have every confidence in the next prediction of a cold end of Jan/ beginning of Feb cold and if he gets the next round correct he'll be most accurate out of any LR forecaster as always time will tell
  19. WHAT?? Well down here in Cornwall we have had a really stormy December, so stormy in places a 12ft sand wall has been left on our local beaches, lived here for 15 years and never seen this before. So I would say Ian is spot on so far and if it's a cold end of Jan and Feb then I think people should listen
  20. Reliable was a bit tongue and cheek as nothing this far out is reliable when talking about an event a month away, but a SSW is still a distinct possibility !
