  1. [13:35] Just had a grey-ish cloud go over then within a few seconds the wind really ramped up (like a downburst/updraft - don't know what the term is, if someone could educate me), then came loads of hail - tiny sized balls. The wind continued, then five minutes after, it all fell quiet again. Short and sharp. 🙂
  2. Snow still lightly falling. It's been so lovely to watch all through the night. ☺️
  3. Had a 'grandad nap' at around 8:30pm and woke back up just before 11pm and -finally- it snowed here in Highworth. The Mother said there wasn't anything when she popped her head out for a fag about an hour before that, so it's all fairly recent. Hopefully it all continues now through the night. Will look so beautiful at first light. (That's a big reason I like snow, everything around looks so picturesque)
  4. NW Radar has had me on [green] sleet (with [red] snow) for 45 minutes, sadly no show, just rain, rain and more rain. (Slight tone to this in hope that it does change) Location: Highworth, Swindon EDIT (16:42) I think I can see a slight flake amongst the rain, that or my eyes are playing up today. EDIT (16:49) It's been transitioning over the past few minutes from rain to sleet and then now to snow. And yeah, we have snow falling.
  5. That one was fairly mild compared to some of the others. Am very pleased with how it all turned out today, finally getting a decent proper storm.
  6. Well, here in Weston-super-Mare, we got battered. Was amazing! Loads of loud bangs and rumbles, not much in the way of visible 'fork' lightning, oh and slight biblical rain. The drain in our back garden turned into a weird garden feature too. That was one amazing storm.
  7. Snowing in Weston-super-Mare from ~3:45am. First snowflake I've seen in three years. Am well pleased.
  8. Popped to ASDA for some cider at 3:45am ... saw white things ... SNOW!!! In WsM!!! *wahey*

  9. Not that I could see, still bright outside et al, however I followed it on the rain radar and also on satellite imagery. At 1800 and 1805 (BST) it looked more like it had a 'hook', then sometime after that (about 30-60 mins), it was dumping its guts - a well defined circle of Purple (on NW radar) ... it was totally mad how ferocious it seemed on radar. I've never seen one so big in my life.
  10. Just looking out my window (South) and there's a big ass 'anvil' (think that's the term?)

    Hurricane Matthew

    GFS 00Z shows Matthew going up, but then curling for a 'round two' ... I'm hoping, for the folks there, the 00Z is having a slight '06Z moment'. :/ (Attachment: Tropical Tidbits)
  12. Activity starting back up again in Clevedon, although no rain at the moment. Just lightning and thunder. Excellent!
  13. Would normally be in Weston-super-Mare, but am currently in Clevedon this week. Plenty of loud rumbles and the rain is currently just starting now -- ooo a good flash and a cracking rumble.
  14. *crosses fingers for today*
    Good luck to all that get a storm or two today. :D
