  1. Oh ok! That makes sense now. Sorry, should have looked further before posting that, but thanks for your help. Is it because the GFS isn’t as high res as some models.
  2. The chance of some surface based thunderstorms in the far southeast, moving north east- south west. With up to 450kj/g there are more likely to be pulse storms rather than organised, but the isolated stronger cell can’t be ruled out. Only a 50% chance of lightning today though. I really hope convective weather pick up on this for today’s small chance of seeing the first thunderstorm in the southeast. As being in Essex missed the last storms from the last heatwave. Also funnily enough I have never seen estofex issue a forecast and not convective weather. Maybe the chief forecaster is busy this week!
  3. Can see there being happy faces tonight and tommorow morning, just had a hefty snow shower briefly covered everything with a cm of snow on canvey, salt doing it’s job which I layed, 3 grit runs tonight, 7pm, 12am , 4am, more for the morning but that won’t be me! Day off tommorow then! I do think to myself how nice it would look with no salt melting it away, just once don’t worry all my route was gritted, camvey, benfleet, thundersley, every main road gritted! You should see how many roads are on my route, we grit smaller roads too!!
  4. Precipitation building near burnham om crouch, building south, if it keeps building further south may form a band of snow.
  5. From 1700 hours tonight onwards is the time for us in Se Essex and east London , winds veer more NEly and lose some of the easterly component, dragging more moisture and increasing convections, hence why the steamers on models are at a Ne/Sw trajectory. Only just begun
  6. I’m currently in london today on a course, been seeing the snow in canvey !At home for the amber warning tonight and tommorow! Think you will be able to use the sledge? Near the sea wall?
  7. Yellow echoes more predominantly showing across the SE now, this evening and tonight is gonna be interesting for sure
  8. Hence why i haven’t seen it ! At least we know we are in for a treat, showers cropping up slightly further south no just NE of wash, runs in line with METO forecast vid this evening, with flurry’s kissing east anglia by 10/11 pm!
  9. Yes all other regional threads are intact strange that we are split up, must be the busiest, well it’s always the te too in regional discussions
  10. If you was on my route I’d blast your drive!
  11. Always goes smoothly in the night time, when we have 6pm runs is when it gets interesting, the hydraulics for the ploughs have been tested, they haven’t been used in years! Must be exceptional chances of 6inches or more! ( threshold for plough use)
  12. Yes looking for some signs, some further south now, but thought I’d mention it so people can see instability is there, want it to come quicker though man!
  13. We are truly the only ones who are in both
  14. I’m in both! Your guess is as good as mine, I can see why it’s been split, London being the capital and a lot of us from here but no other regional threads have been cut in half, oh well
