  1. Forgive my ignorance. But I'm seeing posts that say we don't want a Nina if we want cold/ice/snow. At the same time I'm seeing posts that say it was a moderate Nina in 2010. November and December 2010 was the best I've experienced in the UK. Here in North Wales the garden pond was frozen solid on bonfire night and we had snow and sub zero temps for almost 2 months before the breakdown into mild zonality happened just before New year's. So what am I missing here? Thanks
  2. My street just been hit, powers gone. Next storm is even bigger, constant roar coming from the south. Really sounds like a USA storm
  3. Just heard the first thunder of they day. North Wales. It been a hell of a week so far, full tank of fuel and cameras are ready.
  4. Same here, Dinorwig. Got a good view south over the mountains. Seems to be coming straight up
  5. Most insane thunderstorm I've experienced in the UK. I visit Florida every year so I'm accustomed to lighting but the storm that just hit us in North Wales had the loudest thunder I've ever heard and an amazing shelf cloud on its approach. Positive CG lightning all round, unmistakable.
  6. A Tornado crossed the Menai straights earlier. Not my video. Edit: just seen its already been posted F020CD28-6690-4EB9-97BF-B1F259B032DC.MOV

  9. 89mph on my roof mounted station in Dinorwic North West Wales. I’m a camera man for the BBC and ive seen my fair share of extreme environments, without exaggeration its like a hurricane out there. Rain is very heavy and very persistent. My house is 977ft ASL Not the worst i’ve seen here mind....yet
  10. I live in snowdonia, in a village nearly 1000ft above sea level, with an open view over to the irish sea. Yes we are accustomed to very high winds, snow, heavy rain, and yes our buildings are built with this in mind vs low lying towns and cities inland. Our roofs are built to “high wind area” codes. We do often get 70-80mph gusts in winter without loosing any roof slates. However, if lowland areas are forecast 70mph+ then I reckon we at elevated positions are in for a loud night indeed. BBC doesnt have my vilage bellow 70mph+ into 85mph for 24 hours. 24 hours is a very long time to be a
