  2. Hi sunnijim, Yes, of course I'm just around the corner from your Hither Green "Base." My Wife and Stepson, heard some Thunder around 10 last Night, from those Cells that tracked to the North of the Thames. But Yours Truly was totally oblivious to it, as I'd "crashed out" earlier, due to all the sleepless Nights I've had, during this Heatwave. Regards, Tom.
  3. Couldn't agree more Daniel, I'm astonished by the lack of T/Storms in our area of S.E.London, not only this Summer but also the last 2 Summers as well. More proof, if it were needed, that heat doesn't necessarily equate, to Thunder. No trigger in the Atmosphere, no Thunder. Regards, Tom.
  4. Hi snowblind, Don't forget, that the Dutch Radar link I Posted, shows Forecast animation. Note the Time Scale, along the bottom. That suggests that those T/Storms, will be staying over Continental Europe. Regards, Tom.
  5. Hi snowblind, Yes, I was thinking the same myself. Think it's going to be a case of Radar watching, to see if anything pops up. Regards, Tom.
  6. Afternoon all, Just got up from my Afternoon nap, and our Close has some surface water on it. Went for a lie down, just after Paul S. mentioned a Thames type Streamer setting up, on the Storms Thread. Very impressed with the METOs Fax chart again, with a Forecast Convergence Zone setting up, just N. of London. I wasn't woken by any Thunder though, and at the moment doesn't appear to be any sferics about. But it seems as though Forecasts are suggesting some around, Tonight. Nothing approaching from the East on Dutch Radar, now. https://www.buienradar.nl/ Some big T/Storms over Germany, and Northern parts of Holland but the steering flow is set to turn into the S.W./W., over the other side of the North Sea. Regards, Tom.
  7. Hi Jackie, Yes I plan to include the Group 1, Prix Jacques le Marois, in the Competition. More details on that, later. Regards, Tom.
  8. Afternoon all, I hope yourself and your Families, are all well and Virus free. Well it was still an uncomfortable night for sleeping, although the Temperature was lower than recent Nights, the humidity was higher. It feels much more pleasant now, though. Much thanks for Tomorrows' Selections, Jackie (DRECKLY), ^^^^. I'll get those entered up. I will now Post up details of the Format for additional Category 3 - BRISTLE BOYS WEEKEND HANDICAP PATENT. As B.B. enjoys Betting in Handicaps, I've focused his additional Category, around those Races. The Bet Bristle Boy has chosen, is a Patent. PATENT A bet involving three selections and seven bets – three singles, three doubles and one treble. It is the equivalent of a Trixie but with the addition of three singles. For example, a 50p Each Way Patent would cost £7.00. You will be asked to Select a Horse in the ultracompetitive, Great St. Wilfrid Handicap (3.15 Ripon (Sun). For your other 2 Selections, you will be given the choice of the other 8 Televised Handicaps, to be run over the Weekend. I will now Post the link to the Declarations for LEG 1, the Great Wilfrid Handicap. You MUST Select your Leg 1 Selection, from this Race. Please Copy/Paste your Leg 1 Selection, into the Box provided below.

  9. Keep hearing this "blast from the past", and it's been driving me mad!! It's from a Belgian guy called Roger Francois Jouret, better known as Plastic Bertrand. He was famous for his 1978 International Hit Single - Ca plane pour moi. Which evidently is a French idiomatic expression, that loosely translates as - "Everything's going well for me." Regards, Tom.
  10. Morning all, Although a lot cooler this Morning, as some have stated above, still very humid. Not surprising when you view the recent Air Temperatures, alongside the Dew Points, around our Region. See Meteociel Charts for both, below: TEMPERATURES DEW POINTS The Air above our Region, is almost fully saturated. Have been impressed with the METO's Fax Charts, recently. Their Forecasting of likely Convergence Zones, have been pretty accurate in my Book. Their Forecast Fax Chart for Midnight, last Night, indicated a likely Convergence Zone, close to the Thames. This resulted in a train of Thundery Weather, stretching ENE > WSW across N.London, and parts of our Region. They suggest there will be a similar set up, in the same area again at Midnight, Tonight. And it's still Forecast to be there, around Midday Tomorrow. We had some flashes of Lightning and cracks of Thunder, around 10 PM last Night, here in S.E.London. I was totally oblivious to it, had "crashed out" earlier, courtesy of the number of sleepless Nights I've had recently. There's obviously plenty of "juice" in the Atmosphere, as can be seen from the Thundery ppn, tracking across East Anglia, at the moment. If I were a Storm lover (and I'm not), I wouldn't give up hope of seeing some pyrotechnics, just yet!! Very pleased to see Overnight Model Runs continue with a theme of cooler conditions, and those deep orange 500mb colours, being "chased" away now. With it turning more unsettled, I wouldn't mind placing a small Wager, on there being an equivalent amount of Thunder in my "neck of the woods" in the next few Weeks, to what I've witnessed in the nigh on last 8 and a half Summer Months, with Temperatures still relatively high. To paraphrase a saying used in Bill Clinton's, successful 1992 Presidential Campaign: "It's the unstable Atmosphere, Stupid". Regards, Tom.
  11. Evening all, From a distinctly cooler (thankfully) feeling, South East London. I hope yourself and your Families, are all well and Virus free. Below, are the Racing Post links to the Declarations for Saturdays' 7 Competition Races. Select 1 Horse in each Race.

  12. It's at this time, as the steering flow turns to the East in Winter, I Post up a link to the Dutch Radar Site, Buienradar: https://www.buienradar.nl/ I wonder if those T/Storms crashing away over Belgium and the South of the Netherlands will get sucked towards us. Regards, Tom.
  13. Hi Angela, Yes, it's what our Thames Corridor dwellers crave in the Winter Months. I vividly remember a back building T/Storm Streamer, that set up across N.Kent/S.E.London, at the end of a very warm/humid spell in September, a few Years ago. I was TomSE20 at the time, and living in Anerley. I can remember Steve Murr having his Basement Flat flooded by the event. I think he lived in Bexleyheath, then. If you view the current Radar animation, you can see the steering flow, turn more into the E, rather than S.E. https://en.meteox.com/en-gb?fc=0&lightning=1 Regards, Tom.
  14. Turned very gloomy here in Lee, S.E.London. Noticed a trough line along the Thames Estuary on the Meto's Fax Chart, for later on Today. It could be that the convergence showing on that Map, that Mark Wheeler Posted earlier, has started to lift further North, and causing that "train" of thundery weather to lift North with it. Regards, Tom.
  15. Afternoon all, I hope Malcolm doesn't mind, as the Thread is busy with the interesting Weather around our Region, at the moment but would like to return briefly to my comment about "A" Level results. Although it's not Weather related, it is pertinent to the South East Regional Thread, I will reveal why in a moment, I'm a really proud Great Uncle Tom, this Afternoon. Just heard that my Great Niece, got an A * in Art, and an A in both Film and Geography. Here she is below, with her amazing Painting of Chartwell House, near Westerham: - next to it, an image of the real thing - I think you'll admit, not a bad likeness. She certainly doesn't get that talent from her Great Uncle. I can't Paint or Draw, for "toffee". She did the Painting as a present for her Grandfather's (my Brother-in-Law), 70th Birthday. My Brother-in-Law does volunteer work at Chartwell, taking visitors around the Family Home of Winston Churchill. No surprise to me, with that standard of work, that she achieved an A*. Regards, Tom.
