  1. Maybe a chance that someone will see thundersnow. If I do, it will be a first as not experienced it before.
  2. Still over 2 days away but I am keeping my eyes on Monday as a day where there could be a few "spring style" thundery hail showers around.... in winter.
  3. A short video of Storm Doris over the countryside around Belper https://www.newsflare.com/video/109464/weather-nature/gale-force-winds-from-storm-doris
  4. I've just been out driving and walking around the surrounding countryside of Belper and lots of debris on the roads such as twigs, branches, rubbish and other small items. I came across some downed trees too. Some of the gusts seemed very powerful, especially up around Crich. It seems to have died down a lot now, still breezy but the worse appears to be over for here.
  5. Looks like a windy day tomorrow where I am. It will likely be already very windy as I travel to work but most of the action will occur whilst I am in work. I think I will be taking my camcorder to work tomorrow as may be able to capture some interesting wind footage over my lunch break
  6. Looks like the first real interesting weather of the year for these parts. The GFS 12z slightly delays it as compared to the 06z which has the effect of it deepening more over our shores than out over the North Sea. The strongest winds from Doris still look to be off the east coast through the afternoon. Wind gusts look to be in the region of 60-70mph across a swathe of N England and the N Midlands, plenty strong enough for some disruption but nothing too out of the ordinary. It will come as a bit of a shock though after what has been a very quiet Autumn/Winter for wind events.
  7. Light snow falling here but it won't settle unless it gains intensity as the ground is too wet.
  8. Only a very light dusting here but the hills are white so will be taking a walk/drive up there soon
  9. Snow shower over Belper currently, not settling though. Some decent sized flakes at first but now more like snow grains/graupel.
  10. Agreed. Although admittedly this thread does go into semi-hibernation at this time of the year the correct thread for discussing winter storms would be the one indicated above. This one is for storms and showers of the convective variety.
  11. Going to be heading up the Peak District tomorrow for my snow fix. I've not seen snow since May 1st and that doesn't really count as it was in the Alps
  12. It looks like I will miss most of this snow, which suits me as I want to be able to get to work. Ideally though I would like there to be snow cover over the Peaks for the weekend so I can get out and about in it.
  13. Thanks Roger. I will lock this thread so as to avoid the confusion of people are posting in two places. Feel free to post your thoughts in the thread Jo has mentioned above.
  14. There were no overhead thunderstorms in Derby as far as I know but 5 days whereby I heard thunder, all of it fairly distant. 18 thunderstorms seen and heard if I include chasing (not all of them overhead though). Best storms were the afternoon of the 7th June around Bedfordshire and the evening/night of the 15th/16th September across Berkshire/Hampshire. Also chased some good storms on the 12th June from the Midlands through the Home Counties and into Essex and on the 28th May over Somerset.
  15. Chuffed to see three snippets of my videos used in the C4 documentary Britain's Wildest Weather 2016.
