    General Volcanic Activity Thread!

    Indeed, much too early. Lulls in activity are normal, and an eruption is said to be continuous if it occurs within 3 months of the beginning of such a lull, and is not distinctly of a different type (eg, different magma chemistry). Alas, we'll know when we know, and I wouldn't be counting any chickens before then.
  2. There have been bigger, and there have been stronger... but it's also going to be a lovely summer storm in the UK, so I figured it's worthy of its own thread.
  3. What? No thread for Hurricane Chris (https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2018/CHRIS.shtml?), or subtropical Storm Debbie (Current, but not for long!)? I know the Atlantic's quiet, but it's not THAT quiet!

    Hurricane Beryl

    Guess who's back? Back again. Beryl's back....

    Tropical Depression 3

    The NHC map says TS, but the forecast advisory (2100z) refers to Hurricane Chris in the title. Methinks it's been upgraded, but I'm not sure. Either way, the tip of Newfoundland takes the brunt of it. EDIT: Confirmed. 5pm EDT discussion declares an upgrade to Hurricane status. Now lets go spin some fish!
  6. Seems to have been quite active this season... wouldn't be surprised to see a season on the quiet side coming up. That said, if we don't see many hurricanes, I expect to see at least one of the majors being pretty darned major. That heat has to go somewhere!
  7. And over Coventry.
  8. 6pm. Coventry. Snow. We had some. Dusting on the pavements, and where the traffic doesn't run on the roads.
  9. I have to say, I'm loving the 50/50 chance of "torrential" snow in Coventry next thursday.

    Hurricane Ophelia

    Stich get tends to occur just on the outside of a frontal hook, so I'm not sure you'd see it on a slp chart. Alas, I do not have a eurosat link. I'm sure someone else here does though.

    Hurricane Ophelia

    Is the new one a fully fledged system yet? They might have a little dance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fujiwhara_effect#Extratropical_cyclones

    Hurricane Ophelia

    You should propose that as the proper terminology for it to Met Eireann, right away! lol

    Hurricane Ophelia

    On a rather serious note... some deaths many of us probably hadn't considered...

    Hurricane Ophelia

    ... and more importantly, what happened to the wifi west of Scotland?

    Hurricane Ophelia

    Huh. According to Met Eireann, the fastest gust today was at Fastnet Lighthouse, not Roche's point as I erroneously said earlier - 191 km/h (118.682 mph)
