  1. It’s been beautiful here in Acton for the best part of the day, I’ve been watching convection reach it’s limit and drop away. But there’s the odd cloud that looks to be reaching higher now, very pretty, maybe there might be a shower over London at some point this evening. Looking SSW towards the Richmond - Twickenham - Feltham region, there’s the odd bit of convection that looks good
  2. Heaviest snow I think I've ever seen in the last 5 minutes in Acton
  3. Very spring-like shower here in Acton a few minutes ago, suddenly dark, then gusty with heavy rain/hail - and now beautiful clear skies coming in again. I really really want these cold conditions to verify, but if not, I could deal with this kind of spring weather 😊
  4. Thanks for your reply Nick. Just light snow here then - can hardly complain, it's been snow all day in margianal west London.... Hopefully our opportunity tonight come to fruition..... SNOW DAY!!! Although I'll be in L'Hôpital tommorow anyway.... bloody epilpsy
  5. Any chance that once this heavy band of precip that's passed through London and Kent leaves, that the precip behind will perk up? Or will we just have light snow?
  6. Absolute pelters on the Acton/Ealing border too, it's been half an hour of very very heavy snow, maybe 2cm in 45 minutes
  7. 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!
  8. 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)

    Factor 50 should do it, but I'm more concerned about stubborn elderly relatives who want to 'enjoy the sun' :/

    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 :/
