  1. Jo, what wind speeds and gusts are we looking at for this one?
  2. That threw hail down when it passed through Swindon, didn't hear any thunder.
  3. Thanks, I thought I was going mad! Sure there were yellow warnings earlier. Then I thought they were in the process of changing them and another would pop up but no. I've tweeted Fergie to find out whats happened!
  4. I thought we had a storm into Saturday / Sunday. Has icon backed away from that now? Yellow warnings dropped. Think I'm getting my storms confused. :)
  5. I just said the same to my work colleague. Started later than planned but it’s made up for it and still falling in Swindon.
  6. At one point I did wonder if we would actually get any lol. I’ll post pictures when it’s lighter outside.
  7. Dry in Swindon at the moment. Just did a quick walk around the estate. Not even a drop or flake in the wind.
  8. Similar here, forecast -5c, got +2c.. damned cloud. at least I didn't have to scrape the car today!
  9. Wasn’t it last winter our Met Office seemed to always wait for the Irish met to name it? Maybe just seemed like it. Does seem odd to name it now. Has there been an unexpected change in the observations in the last hour I wonder?
  10. Temp got to 1.7c max with frost and ice staying on cars, roofs and in gardens out of direct sun today. Temp now 0c
  11. Surprised its not been named given the amber warning now out. I thought that was one of the criteria.
  12. Defo seems like its building up to something and it does sound like its overdue a biggie, I wouldn't be worried, there is not much we can do about it. When will it go up ... I don't think the experts really know and they have said as such in reports today. I understand this volcano is often more active in the autumn. I did read somewhere that if it goes up you should be able to hear the explosion as far away as Paris. No idea if that's really true or not.
  13. I’ve picked up my bin already. It’s not really windy in Swindon at all. Just cold rain
  14. I e only live here since July 2015. This is the first Swindon snow I’ve seen. Oh look a snow plough, that’s a first for today.
  15. Apparently it’s big snow flakes in Keynsham Bristol now. Here in Swindon it’s white!
  16. Yes it’s a little chaotic here because it rained and then snowed. So nothing is gritted. Hearing reports of a lot of accidents and quite a few hills are not passable. I’m on the A4289 and I’ve not yet seen a grittier or plough.
