  1. Some good ingredients in play today for some nice storm development. Surprised none of the storm forecast sites seem to be picking up any warnings today - maybe some good storms but nothing too severe? Precip charts look very good with some moderate CAPE. Maybe I'm missing something? These sort of set ups historically are good for some weak tornado's/funnels
  2. That’s the place to be just ahead of the main clump - that sure looks a possible supercell. Anyone near this?
  3. Nice structure to this storm - is it showing signs of supercell structure looking at that radar? Either way we’ve had a pelting in Ely - constant thunder and very heavy precipitation
  4. Also to note - Meto warning pretty accurate so far as far as the zone of the storms.... impressive
  5. Some nice storms popping up now around Cambridge - just had a sharp burst, first 'rain' in over a month. No thunder / lightning yet though
  6. Well here we go again - I admit I was overly pessimistic before the last spell but even I got a decent dosing in the end. The amount of instability that followed did surprise me somewhat - the charts certainly underplayed this factor last time but the Meto did seem to pick up the potential. As for this spell, the charts are indicating some good potential around the Wash/Thames. I have to admit though I am far more optimistic this time round - knowing what sort of instability the last lot of cold produced, it could be good times for us in the east if the set-up does continue on it's track.... I am going to go for the charts underplaying snow potential at the moment, and similar places getting another decent pasting this time round (Saturday night/Sunday).. Speaking to my elderly relatives they do recall decent snow in March and even April back in the day... so anything is certainly possible. We have all got too used to mild winters lately hence the surprise factor here! I have to admit in all my years of following the weather I cannot recall such vicious easterly intrusions.... it really is fascinating and very rare. It's a nice change!
  7. Meto seem to be convinced the main belt of snow won't get much further north than London but BBC and GFS say it pushing well into EA.... we'lll just have to see. GFS say 3-4cm possible though so there has to be a little bit of hope... all about how far that front pushes North. Overall been a great week of deep cold. Am I looking forward to spring now though? You bet!!! lol
  8. Latest charts show it fizzling out quite a bit with every run.... not looking that likely to give us much decent at the moment
  9. Just had the best crazy snow storm of the week nr Cambs - threw down a good couple of CM's of fresh snow Anther one incoming before the quiet period begins I suspect Making the most of this as Fridays chances of a decent dump seem to be going down the swanny! Crazy snow.mp4
  10. Although radar still looks ok drier air coming in now - convection/showers will likely start to fizzle, worst of todays snow has most likely passed.
  11. Must admit I'm impressed with the longevity of the shower activity today - expected it to all peter out this morning. Wind strength seems to have pepped up the snow squalls I still anticipate it to die down this afternoon but it's good fun until then! Not much in the way of decent snow totals from today's showers though.
  12. It will die a death over next few hours I reckon , dry for most by this eve according to the charts
  13. Don't fear - you've done better than most! A mere 1-2cm here near Cambs
  14. Looking likely we'll get snow but just how much is the question... the models vary with every output from a proper dump to just a 2-3cm event.
  15. About a CM here this morning but we are right on the edge of where it fizzles out. Looked promising earlier but its all just fizzling as soon as it gets inland - typically what I'd expect from this kind of set up! Never mind. South & East Cambs is just not the place to be in an Easterly...
