  1. For those after live news streams there's a couple you can watch here: ABC https://www.pscp.tv/w/1RDGlNVBNBOxL?q=dorian CBS https://www.periscope.tv/w/1zqKVEyZWmXxB?q=dorian
  2. Here's a link to a couple of live webcams from Rocky Bay, Great Abaco: https://www.rockybay.com/webcam_page.htm?wp=RB Location info: https://www.google.com/maps/place/26°30'00.0"N+77°00'00.0"W/@26.5143034,-77.0094787,12z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d26.5!4d-77
  3. You might want to read this for a possible explanation Cheeky. It's connected with a weaker vortex in the north pole causing a displacement of the colder air and a wavier jet stream. https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2019/01/30/this-is-why-global-warming-is-responsible-for-freezing-temperatures-across-the-usa/#f72a23ed8cf8
  4. You could argue that a global economic collapse is the only way we'll ever actually reduce our carbon emissions! The more economically active we are the more of the earth's resources are consumed, the more of a throwaway society we live in (whether it's cars, phones, washing machines etc) and the more fossil fuel is burnt. As well as being less wasteful communities need to become more locally self sufficient so there is less of a need to transport manufactured goods and produce half way around the planet. Brexit, for example, which the greens are vehemently against, is actually something that would help/encourage/force us to do just that.
  5. Hi everyone, not expecting any fireworks here in my part of Wiltshire but good luck to those of you further east. Let's hope tonight lives up to the hype. Can't believe how many excited thunder and lightening enthusiasts are on this forum right now!
  6. This stream is petty decent... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wi_F0Qj6_A
  7. Car thermometer read -11 at 8am here. Spent a good 15 minutes defrosting it then couldn't get it off the drive!
  8. That very slow moving area of snow over Hampshire is edging this way just enough to catch the edge of it
  9. Easily 12+ cm of laying snow here since 9pm last night but what's falling now is the heaviest so far. When will it end?
  10. Still experencing moderate snowfall here in NE Wiltshire, pretty surprised to be honest! Radar wasn't looking too encouraging earlier.
  11. Still snowing nicely here south of Marlborough but looks like it will fizzle out soon. Definitely at the higher end of my expectations! Work is closed too so all good
  12. The heavier the snow the less likely you'll be able to sleep. But, handily, the heavier the snow the less likely you'll be able to get to work for it to matter
  13. Latest met forecast (6pm) is still showing 7 hours of heavy snow between 10pm and 4am. Weird.
  14. Exactly what I'm thinking now unfortunately (for us). Hopefully there's a reasonable chance of 2nd round later on?
  15. Don't write this off just yet guys - local forecasts are still looking good (including Frome!). It's unusual to see large swathes of red or orange snow on the radar to be fair - the yellow is still pretty heavy!
