  1. That "storm" that was over Northampton/Milton Keynes is now going opposite direction, heading for London, what's going on with the weather...? It was moving north' ish, now south' ish, how's this possible?
  2. Nope, been over and checked, light reflecting off a weather balloon near venus and refracting off double yellow lines mate!!!
  3. The Leicester snow shield is on full power still, I took this photo only 5 minutes ago... When I say we have no snow, I mean we really have no snow at all!!!! LE3 0BB
  4. Same with thunderstorms, we either get nowt, and only here and see other people's storms, or we get ommered!! Leicester, that is....
  5. The Leicester snow shield is on full power, been turned up to 11 to help keep the snow away... Its working unfortunately.. Just tiny flurries breaking through....
  6. Is this some sort of low pressure area developing, seems to have a bit of rotation going on..... If not, what is causing this......?
  7. LE3, West End of Leicester.... @ 15.00hrs Tuesday 27th Feb 2018. Report. Suns out, few wispy clouds, no signs of any convective activity within 15 miles... Ish, current temp is stable at -0.7c, still as a cup of tea on a frozen mill pond, no sign of any snow in the next couple or 3 hours, nothing lying anywhere either...!!
  8. Diddly squat in Leicester City (West End) its gone dark a couple of times, but little to nothing fell out the sky, not even any polystyrene!!!
  9. We had a blob like that over Leicester for most of the afternoon........ Did it snow all afternoon.............................? No, it snowed for around 10 mins at 13.30 till 13.40...... Then again at 15.00 for about 5 mins, then again at 16.30 for around another 5 mins, yet nearly the whole time we were under that pink stuff on the snow map... It really hasn't been trustworthy for this event.....
  10. This ere' Polar Low, is now gonna miss the East Midlands, especially the more South Eastern parts Inc South Notts, Leicester, Northampton, etc, and Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Scunthorpe, could get battered..... Hope it gets a slight southerly knock on the next runs.....
  11. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, and thats a big hmm.. Don't think Leicester will get anything overnight tonight, or tomorrow day, just have this feeling in my bones that our little dip will miss out, maybe a cm or 2 Friday, it's not even that cold.... Hovering around 0c to 1c.......
  12. Report on LE3 Sunny/cloudy mix, -1.3c sun trying hard, but struggling... Large snowflakes spiralling downwards, no density yet, the snow is sort of making B-Lines for Wall corners and car wiper blade parking spots!!!
  13. Pink stuff nearing A1/Grantham now (00:10) will streamers set-up on the back of this, triggered by the Wash? Will it reach Leicester by dawn.....??
  14. Leicester has had a virtually thunderless year (2017) I cannot remember a single storm that was ours (less than 4 miles away) Sure, we had a couple of grazers, storms that slipped by in the distance, but cannot recall any that would have had me outside sitting in the car....
  15. Not all lightning is picked up by the detector network, I have been reliably informed that cloud to cloud, in cloud lightning more often than not is not detected.... However, a thunderclap like you're describing sounds like it should be the result of a positive ground strike.... I suppose it could have been missed by the detector grid...
  16. Welcome fellow Leicestershirearian.. on a knife edge with regards yes/no (Thunderstorms) very, very humid, still, stagnant air, need a storm to bring the "PETRICORE" [Apologies if I have misspelled it]
  17. I thought it was reference to a really old, brick-like mobile phone!!!
  18. Is this that pesky anaprop/possible CU tower? It's still meandering about at 00:19 Tuesday morning!!! No visual, or audio, just radar splodge.....
