  1. After much deliberation I decided to stay in Bournemouth and headed for Southbourne clifftop. Was treated to a spectacular light show, largely from IC lightning, and then got pummelled by torrential rain and reasonably large hail (sounded like really big hail from inside the car)! Then went up to Picket Post just off the A31 near Burley and saw lots of CGs, mainly from the cells pushing inland to the east of me. All in all, a great night, but the sparsity of CGs in the Channel and the quietness of the thunder, even when lightning was overhead and constant, left me a little unfulfilled, which I realise is nuts considering the lack of storms here for what seems like an age. From a personal perspective, I much preferred the storms of 2014 & 2015, but last night was pretty amazing nonetheless!
  2. Thanks - I don't really understand the dynamics but it doesn't feel right - steering winds seem very much to be SW-NE. It's all too far east to be worth going to the coast and in case there's a display on the distant horizon. Think I'll take an early night (and leave the curtains open just in case)!
  3. Storm not arrived here yet, but this looks like a cracking HD live webcam. https://www.webcam-harlingen.nl/
  4. Not seen any CGs, but IC lightning is constant on this one right now: https://wwitv.com/tv_channels/b6409-Scheveningen-webcam.htm
  5. This one could be good - incoming? https://www.feratel.com/en/webcams/netherlands/drimmelen.html
  6. Rain now turning to big sleet in north Bournemouth. Thank heavens - my nerves are shredded!!!
  7. Please can you provide a link to the dedicated cold spell thread? TIA.
  8. If memory serves that was a polar low that dropped down and stalled in the English Channel. Bournemouth was under a Met O Red Warning but the low tracked a little too far east before stalling and we ended up getting naff all snow whilst the A3 corridor took a pasting.
  9. Mother Of All Storms going off right now in the North Adriatic, off the coast of Venice.
  10. 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.
