    Frying Pan Tower's flag could take another battering if tropical storm winds hit the Carolina coasts again tomorrow!

    https://www.downtownapalachicola.com/downtown-webcam/ Not a beach one, from what I can see now in the darkness but this is in the predicted landfall area. So could be ok for viewing tomorrow, if it remains streaming!
  5. For a clearer European Snow Cover View I found this one which pulls it's data from IMS @ NOAA, it does however appear to be updating 1 day behind the usual NHemisphere map but is still quite nice http://zoz.cbk.waw.pl/snieg/en/

    1.2°C Bright sunny skies with 50% ish milky cloud streaks, frost on cars but grass too dead to record a frost or anything really lol

    SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 26/03/2018 onwards

    Been up in the NW for last couple of months and long sleeves had crept out again, although frequent rain and sunshine has returned the grass back to lush fresh green with autumnal colours bursting out all over the place. Returned down to the SE on Thursday night and it's still warm with dead brown grass down here! Even though cooler today I'm still in short sleeves with windows open at 9.30pm Misty dank morning and 5.2mm of rainfall recorded today, we still need more to retain some balance but I won't grumble at blue skies and sunshine when/if they return but can we please not have plume humidity, it's quite useless and not needed for thunder and lightning.

    Have you turned your heating on yet ?

    Nope Although to be fair, I've been up in the NW for last couple of months and long sleeves had crept out again. Returned down to the SE on Thursday night and it's still warm with dead grass down here! Even though cooler today I'm still in short sleeves with windows open at 9.30pm

    European Storm & Convective Discussion

    The Saffir-Simpson scale measures hurricane from a Category 1 up to a Category 5. These ocean formed tropical cyclones require warm SST's of at least 26/27c to reach hurricane status and travel in an East > West direction. The tropical cyclones that are formed in the Med. with cooler SST's and travel West > East are unlikely (never?) to reach beyond a Category 1, I believe but maybe someone more knowledgeable will correct that. So to my understanding, these storms are limited in Category strength due to the cooler SST's, so a scale is not really required, plus they travel in a different direction. These reasons make sense in my mind for a hybrid name and where to find them. Hope this helps, if only a little ☺

    It is not in the Atlantic or Eastern Pacific. It has however reached the required min. wind speed of 74mph to gain hurricane status and thus has been upgraded to Medicane (Mediterranean + Hurricane = Medicane). Is that what you meant with regard to it not being a 'legit hurricane ' ?
  12. Lovely thunderstorm passed over Liverpool area beginning with sheet lightning and loud rumbling thunder at 4pm to go on to give a few CG's and spectacular cracks with gusting winds and short sharp heavy raindrops which led into a few more cracks with a heavy hail shower dropping peas by 4.45pm then it was all over with blue skies and breaking the clouds. Still pretty blowy out there, fantastic 24hrs of weather

    Storm Bronagh- Atlantic Storm 2

    Not in my usual SE spot right now but am a few minutes East of Liverpool and from approx 1am til 1.30am the wind was immense with splatters of rainfall throughout. I thought it was a squall passing through to begin with but after 5 mins guessed it couldn't be and radar shows no squall for round here! for those that do get a squall line passing, it should be a good'un just don't go outside!
  15. Just scanning through the threads and seeing the 'usual' posts but hark! Is that wobbly voices I hear in the model thread? All the FI charts appearing and that's all we should focus on! I thought it was July right now, not January
