  1. Trying to be optimistic, though finding it hard today, no sunshine yet. It is humid and temperature is quite nice, looking at the radar and feeling as if the warnings and forcasts have way over shot what was ecpected, i guess there is time for it to change but i honestly thought their would be more going on down the south coast and towards london.
  2. View to my east! its growing...
  3. Towers going up looking out eastwards from Wellingborough, south east midlands.
  4. Looking at a few charts etc, and just my own opinion I have drawn a little guesstimate of where things may fire up and direction. if course could be 50 or so miles north or south. What we all recon? Peter.
  5. Feeling very warm and humid. Looks to be building to my south, my location being south east midlands! Feels very ripe for more explosive storms.
  6. Good morning, Well what a night! Me and a couple of friends traveled from Rushden down to the Dunstable downs as a middle ground for any chasing, also it was a good high up position for seeing anything in the distance. About 10pm we could see the storms flashing away over London and decided to head just north west of London close to the M25, this was a good choice. We then kept slightly a head of it as we headed to Aylesbury and then headed back home for about 2am as the we could see it would be following us. So much lightning to view, it almost hurt your eyes, will not forget this storm in a hurry. Fingers crossed for more this way today! Peter
  7. Very shocked to see as much snow right now in Northamptonshire! Looking at the radar, the amount of precip is more than I expected and travelling a lot further east, the stupid BBC app suggests no snow all night, but looking at it this powdery stuff will continue all night maybe even get heavier!
  8. Trouble is the forecast models where there, in front of us, telling us how bad it could be. As fun as it is chasing and forecasting these models I cant help but sometimes think of it as nothing more than glorified guessing, forecasting is pretty darn good 3 - 5 days ahead but anything longer and it just can't be done especially on an island that has so much weather influences from around us.
  9. Shocked and disappointed at the huge changes in the weather after constant progression of cold weather forcasts and models, it maybe cold but its nothing on the scale it suggested and this warm breakdown at the end of the week will ruin any chance of deep snow for my area.
  10. My guess this big chuck maybe the big event but it will continue NNE in direction and could grow and be quite an eventful night for many?
  11. To many people thinking its over, its not over. The cloud is building rapidly across southern midlands now, I think the weather alert exists till tomorrow morning due to more storms coming over night.
  12. Cloud building quickly here over Northamptonshire/Bedfordshire, was clear blue skies about an hour ago with very high temperatures! Something tells me there may be more to come this evening.
  13. What's the chance of anything developing further north this afternoon/ evening, across East Midlands?
  14. I can confirm the cell in Northamptonshire as the bright lightening woke me up. However it's gone quiet for now and I think that's because it's only just gone up, it might be a sign of storms about to break out elsewhere between the cold front and further east.
