      Oh well, various bits of info are telling me max 50 mph gusts for south east with next weeks storm, so im going to invent a new weather description = 'breezy galeish'.

  2. A message to the gfs 18z, please bring next weeks storm 150 miles south, thanks.

      Evening thunder

      Thunderbolt it was pretty newsworthy so would not say boring in terms of meteorology, I could say December 2010 was boring because I don't like cold and snow (I do really)

  5. If you block someone, for whatever reason, why on earth would you still want see their posts ? Is that not just a little counter productive ? I havent blocked anyone by the way, love you all kiss kiss lol

      Ha ha, im glad for him that hes blocked me because if we get snow in the south he would be seeing my face a lot !! Poor guy, must have been horrific for him with my storm rachel ramps. 'Big Grin'

  6. Wow, what a monumental difference in quality on youtube with my camcorders files as opposed to my camera in video mode, all i have to do now is get my car camera mount to accept the weight of my camcorder. not that theres any storms to chase for the foreseable future :o(

  7. Had family dinner, my niece loves text speak - we got OMG (oh my god) and BTDUBS which translates to BTW which further translates to 'by the way' then 'Evvs Bovvs' which is 'Whatever, am I bothered' and loads more !!

  9. Are we allowed to try and learn how to read charts in the regional threads, or is that for the learning area only ?

      It's not quite - when people talk about 528dam air, it's the distance between 1000hpa (near to but not actually always on the surface) and 500hpa.

    3. Steve C

      Steve C

      Really? I understand wrt to snowfall events, that an adjustment has to be made for the surface level pressure- ie lower pressure means lower thickness levels are needed, but thought that the normal charts posted don't show that adjustment. I'd always look for 500 - 1000 hPa thickness charts to assess snow probability, rather than the 'normal' ones - maybe I need to revisit the learners' area...

    4. mickeyb44

      mickeyb44

      Thanks guys, its all still confusing for me. Anyway I should be asking these questions in the learning area. Im now hoping for a light dusting of snow tonight. :o)

      I normally am, it's just in terms of snow, tomorrow/Weds at least down south looks a bit tougher to achieve. Not ruling it out by any means... ;)

      I think it all started to go wrong when we started to measure snow depth in centermetres rather than inches !!.

      At this rate, in a few years, wet snow will be considered the new benchmark for a good winter.

      Im not as experienced as you lot but, what about the brief easterly thursday as mentioned on beeb tv ? Is it rubbish ? I dont know......

      It may be a 'blink and you'll miss it' sort of Easterly, but more runs needed to be absolutely sure of that. I don't think anyone really can have any confidence what happens from around mid week onwards.

      Thanks, heres the forecast from monty python

  17. Not going to bother with the countryfile forecast, based on latest ecm i am now a moaning southerner ! Pah, rubbish, not worthy of the term 'storm' in my area. See you all tomorrow.

      No need for that comment what so ever. I've been on Netweather 3 years yes, but have many more years experience of chart viewing ect etc. i don't need to explain myself to you anyway. And please don't talk to me/or about me because i blocked you yesterday and am no longer interested in anything you have to say. Now, if you have any decency in you, you'll respect my wishes and leave me be. If you don't i will report you

      Picking my toys up now and put back in pram, must try to remember not to let the gfs wind me up for about 10 days in advance and only start looking seriously when its in the 72 hour timeframe. Sorry for my moan :o))

  18. Thats it, im blaming my sister because she hates snow. Its all her fault. :o))

      Trouble is, the south east in the past has been crippled with regards to infrastructure, even from wea events and no one wants the hassle of dealing with it anymore, that i can understand i suppose.

    3. mickeyb44

      typo 'weak events'

      1cm of snow brings London to a halt lol

  19. A little while ago we had starnge white objects about the size of a 2 pence piec falling from the sky. I was terrified, nearly called the police - thought it was a terrorist poison attack. What the hell was that stuff ? :o))

      Watched harry potter with my nephew last week, it was fab, Im a trekky too. Mixed feelings in the south east regional thread at the moment. some writing off the cold spell and saying we wont get a proper snow event. they may, sadly be right.

      In TNG I think I remember them talking about having control of weather on Earth. Imagine, a snow lottery each Christmas!

      can you imagine if we were going to get a foot and a half to two feet of snow in short space of time. it wouldnt be a red warning, it would be a 'super gold plus' we are all going to die, warning.

      LOL! Could you imagine if it only did 4 inches instead :-0
