  1. At the moment the National weather warning, the yellow, gives same risk/impacts to east Wales/ northern England as SE England and East Anglia. All still at Unlikely It was issued on Sunday night, although was time shortened yesterday to make way for the next broad brush TS yellow Fri/Sat. Night-time seems to overrule, even in mid summer
  2. Interestingly if you have looked at the @ MetOffice twitter feed today, there is no mention of Thunderstorms at all. You can name another type of storm (confusing- someone has already asked me that )
  3. Met Office social media team have a whole online campaign for the new names list - as long as they start with A to D because storm naming itself hardly every happens. (in the West region, other regions are available. ) Previous lists - https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/uk-storm-centre/index
  4. I'll add the blog link in https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/news/10924-thunderstorm-warnings---are-they-hitting-the-spot and some examples from today . In this article, it was looking at how Storm forecasting didn't fit well into the red/amber/yellow system. That system does have it's own issues realting to public understanding and response but the blanket yellow TS warnings that are now in place for 4 days (weds-Sat) just don't work. Which is why I included the US and Australian examples. Interesting topic though
  5. A widespread early warning for Thunderstorms later this week does give an early heads-up but is the current national warning system working for the public when storms and lightning appear? Read more here
  6. More cloud than the model had at 8am The SW breeze should help areas to lee of high ground
  7. The UK weather for the weekend of 12th/13th June. It is looking hot by Sunday. Patchy low cloud in the west but a lot of fine, sunny weather on the way with temperatures widely in the 20s, and locally perhaps 30's Celsius Read more here
  8. On Thursday morning, there will be a partial solar eclipse visible from the UK, although there will be cloud for some. The full Annular eclipse will be visible over Canada and the Arctic circle. Read more here
  9. I'm hoping I've still got my eclipse glasses filed under E.
