  1. As others have mentioned throughly miserable, wet and cold day here, if only it was winter eh!
  2. Huge cell literally developed over my house, constant thunder but no rain, looks like it’s heading NW of Ipswich so anyone in that direction get ready for some action
  3. Storms have avoided here today, was rather nice feeling 22°C earlier now up to 25.6°C probably another 30 plus day coming up
  4. Looks like we've hit the max of 30.9C today here temp just edging back down now, must be the sea breezes kicking in taking the edge off. Edit: Hang on, its on its way back up again!
  5. Light/moderate snow now, had some bigger flakes earlier but nothing settling. Nice to see after 2 years of waiting though! Shame the colder air didn’t undercut earlier
  6. Just 20 odd miles down the road and it couldn’t be more different. Few bigger flakes mixed in now though
  7. Light rain/sleet here in Ipswich, temp and dew both dropping to something which is more conducive for snow but the precipitation isn’t heavy enough it seems
  8. Yes looking a those ensembles and just reading GP thoughts looks a very brief respite to the wind and rain. Will be nice to have a more seasonal feel to the Xmas period before Atlantic onslaught begins again unfortunately
  9. A cracking spell of sleet here now ? This event was so marginal for here but I suppose it was always going to be thus so can’t be too dispondant. Back to medium long term prospect again for me and the hunt for some more winter....
  10. Brief spell of light snow here in Ipswich in the early hours but no covering to speak of, in fact it melted what leftover snow there was remaining from the other day! temps and dp were too marginal. That’s still the case the morning. Looks like some people did ok around the region but haven’t seen any decent depths reported (7cm+) so far... Wintry mix today/this weekend and a few more sliders going forward seems to be the theme... give me a solid ENE any day!
  11. Finally in the game here in Ipswich! Light to moderate snow falling now with a brisk north easterly breeze
  12. Yeah straight northerlies without some oomph are a waste of space unless you live in Norfolk! I actually meant a NEE wind for here is the jackpot direction. As you say seen many 20cm falls from that. Defo something brewing with regards to HLB into the next week. The Siberian high has been meandering with intent
  13. Agreed Chris, NNE is the one for us here in Suffolk but anything from N to E wind direction suits Norfolk. Speaking of which the 6z pipes up with an scandi high...
  14. Moving away from the slight disappointment of the short term here locally I’ve been looking mid term again and on the face it’s not looking ovelry cold (defo not mild though), so would be good to hear your thoughts on next week Steve? More HLB to appear as a response to the SSW downwell as we move through into week 2 and the weakening jet pushed further south? Siberian high seems to be excerting it’s presence more and more perhaps edging slightly further westwards into Scandi?
