  1. Mother Of All Storms going off right now in the North Adriatic, off the coast of Venice.
  2. And that's a 20% chance of the all-time UK record being broken!!! 30% chance of the July record being broken, according to the Met O's Chief Forecaster.
  3. High pressure is becoming so dominant it's now taking over the Icelandic low pressure!
  4. Torrential downpour just west of Poole. Thunder heard.
  5. Thor's just put 50p in the meter!
  6. I'm on Bournemouth's West Cliff and there's loooaaads more lightning out in the Channel than is being picked up by the lightning apps.
  7. I'm torn. Champion's League or out chasing the storms. I've git a feeling they could be a bit special this evening.
  8. Yes, thing happening all of a sudden here in Bournemouth. Looking very good!
  9. Blitzortung WAAAAY off the mark. The lightning is non stop. Continental style!
  10. On Bournemouth clifftop. CONSTANT lightning. It's April. Bloody insane!!
  11. Walking back from the shop earlier this evening and big (positive?) CG came out of the back of the cloud/blue right down 100-200m in front of me. MASSIVE thunderclap - loudest I've heard for many years. Can't believe BFTE2 was only a few weeks ago!
  12. I'm still very hopeful for this weekend but from an IMBY point of view (and yours I suspect), my fear is that the frontal snow will be more prevalent in the far SW, with most of the convection in the NE, leaving us in a drier middle section.
  13. Here's an interesting excerpt: "We have not seen such an absence of deep cold pool events since the 1970s, and therefore, in spite of global warming, who is to say that, following 1956 and 1987, the next extremely deep cold pool event will not visit us in January or February 2018?" Considering that was written in Jan 2011, that's not a bad call!
  14. Although in fairness, the CFS showed an easterly and very cold start to March a long, long way back if memory serves me right.
