    Hot anticyclonic summers, snow, extreme wind
  1. Caught in a mix of moderate to blizzard-like wet snow and graupel walking home from Richmond to Twickenham, turned into mostly sideways wet snow in the heavier bursts, heard some thunder too, lovely surprise!
  2. Now living in Twickenham (need to update location) = first pulse of heavy rain looks set to miss, but it doesn't appear to be all that thundery, oh well. Later however with the cells north of Caen, by the Channel Islands and the beast over east brittany/west of Orléans look promising , if not potent (french replqcement keyboard (French Wife), can't find the exclaimation point, but (and I'm a conservative storm type)
  3. Model Banter, Moans and Ramps Spring/Summer 2015.

    Factor 50 should do it, but I'm more concerned about stubborn elderly relatives who want to 'enjoy the sun' :/
  4. Model Banter, Moans and Ramps Spring/Summer 2015.

    I have a wedding in Central Paris on July the 4th and I'm becoming increasingly concerned that no-one is taking these high temps seriously. Obviously they won't be 45/46, more like 35/36 but my family have very pale, typical English ruddy skin, and they do not seem to be taking heed of my concerns :/

    Snowing in Leicester city centre Although very lightly at the minute

    Looking at the radar track it looks to be dissipating just in time to "hit" leicester haha, typical! Bedtime!
  7. Atlantic Storm 14th - 15th January

    Worth me staying up for it then?
  8. The Midlands - Weather Chat

    Tomorrow's wind further south than predicted maybe? I'm staying up for the squall line, but if it's only rain and isn't wind-or-other-interesting-weather-feature-based, then I may just call it a night
  9. Atlantic Storm 14th - 15th January

    I'm staying up for it to hit Leicester, could be a long night for me!
  10. Atlantic Storm 14th - 15th January

    Sorry to quote you... but it's certainly lost its lack of breadth (whether that translates to any permutation of more/less intensity over more time?), and the radar at 00:30 from swansea north looks nasty. Also, the hinge on my ill-advised semi-open window just broke in a gust, but I think that's just the poor build quality of my flat...
  11. Atlantic Storm 14th - 15th January

    I know, I'm hoping for the former for some excitement, just hope it maintains structure/develops. From a purely meteorological geek perspective of course, hopefully everyone stays safe. It's turned up a notch in the last 30 minutes here
  12. Atlantic Storm 14th - 15th January

    Anyone reckon Torro's hint of a LEWP could be right, or just a bit of excited forecasting? EDIT: I'm going with the latter
  13. Atlantic Storm 14th - 15th January

    First noticable gusts of the night here in Leicester, later could be the windiest I've ever experienced in the very un-windy city
  14. Atlantic Storm 14th - 15th January

    xcweather wind map/forecast states 63mph gusts at its east midlands location at midnight - 1mph short of beaufort 11 (Violent storm force) - still baffled by the bbc's lack of mention of any inland wind risk? Granted, the wind speed most likely won't be that high, but still? Also, the storm looks beautiful:
