  1. Nipped outside for a few mins and wind has picked up a fair bit and what little there is has been drifting
  2. Will be interesting to see what happens cos that rush up from France looks to have got pretty stuck in the Channel and even decaying, although some looks to have edged in a little towards the SW coast when watching radar It's been flurries all night here dropping down to light flutters but no further depth, we're still on a BIG oooo 2mm, if that!

    -5.9°C and still dropping!

    Wind event is overnight in the early hours of Thursday morning, so strap the bins down Info on the strength and track of the storm is still updating and will be until Wednesday itself, I'm not sure but think that 22mph by the BBC is their progged average wind speed so doesn't include gust speeds! Right now it looks to be a windy night but nothing we're not used to when it's stormy although gusts could make it sound a bit crazy noisy at times. Don't pay too much attention to the dramatic posts in the mad Mod thread about the wind, you are better off following what is said in here for realistic info and there is a dedicated thread for these winds over in the Storm Discussion section.

    Sun is up and just a few wisps of clouds around, the temp has just taken a dip down to -3.2°C that's the lowest for this month....so far! If we can't have snow then clear crisp sunny days will do me

    This one Ice? As you say, looks good and pixels showing up nicely in UK with that smattering all down the west

    Bah! Well that fizzled out completely between Northampton/MiltonK. and is as far west as Worcester now Maybe a few in top of our area got a sprinkle?

    Hi Moogy Often when temperature 'blips' are seen it corresponds to a change in the Barometric Pressure, such readings should be widely available on the weather stations you are looking at. Example : Here right now the Barometer 1007.4 hPa & Steady and Temperature 0.1°C If rain was on it's way then it would say 'Falling Rapidly' or 'Falling Slowly' and the hPa reading would be decreasing whilst the temperature would very likely be rising as the moist air moves into the cold dryer air. These are general guidelines for this time of year and are a little different during warmer weather/Summer but for the moment stick with looking for drop in Barometric Pressure when you see rise in temperature and hopefully you will begin to see the connection. There are likely other reasons which could effect what you have seen and those with better understanding will hopefully offer their guidance but that general rule of thumb has helped me understand what's going on before and after such temperature changes in a short space of time.

    Appears to be some dumpings have landed over Siberia, with what looks like sea ice meeting land across the Laptev Sea. Iceland looks to have a bit more of a covering also in the last few days and if you squint I'm sure even Norway is showing a couple more pixels.
  13. The changing daylight hours thread

    Now we have that out of the way Clocks go BACK four weeks today! Already noticed a vast difference to light levels in the mornings, which I'm grateful for, and in the evenings especially on grey days.
  14. Err you mean Storm Aileen, the one that caused power loss to thousands of homes, brought down trees because they were in full leaf? http://news.sky.com/story/uk-surveys-damage-after-storm-aileen-cuts-power-to-50000-11033703 https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/sep/13/storm-aileen-batters-britain-with-high-winds-and-power-cuts To be fair up where you are escaped being struck but the stronger winds etc which even seemed to bamboozle the Met. Off predictions/warnings DID strike down here during the night when thankfully most were snoozing in bed and out of harms way It wasn't the strongest of storms and had it swept through in late Autumn once trees had dropped then it may not have been named. As it was, it was very early and I do think it warranted the name due to the damage caused and thus was a fair call by Met.Off in that regard.

    This is a handy link for viewing and also displaying how nothing unusual is happening http://earthquakes.volcanodiscovery.com At the very top you can 'Hide' either Volcanoes or Quakes which makes the world map a little easier on the eye
