  2. Lovely big snowflakes now. Best snow for several years here in Arborfield Nr Reading. IMG_0569.MOV
  3. Must be in our region, central southern England. I’m just North of Basingstoke and we have heavy snow again here. Started about an hour ago. Looking at the radar we are in a sweet spot at the moment. The situation around Basingstoke is serious. Lots of people stuck in cars on M3 and surrounding roads. M3 was completely blocked.

  10. What a night, constantly woken by big gusts and our house creeking. Taking my sons to football now (indoors!) so will be able to see any local damage around Arborfield, Reading and Sonning.
  11. Wind has really picked up in the last hour here. Can't measure the speed or gusts but proper stormy now but no rain at present thankfully .
  12. Wind and rain Didn't seem as bad as I expected last night and has been fairly quiet since I got up about 7.30am but the wind has just really picked up, sky darkened considerably and rain started again.
