  1. Four new severe flood warnings on the Rivers Steeping and Lymn in East Lincolnshire, bringing the current UK total to 8. Flood warnings for England - GOV.UK FLOOD-WARNING-INFORMATION.SERVICE.GOV.UK Check your risk of flooding: get current flood warnings, river and sea levels, check the 5-day forecast or use flood risk maps
  2. I use a Sigma 24mm f1.4 from their 'art' range - primarily for astrophotography but it's also great for storms too. I tend to use liveview to manually focus but infinity on this lens is pretty good so in a hurry I feel confident going with that. In terms of tomorrow night, I guess it depends on the cap and whether temps and humidity gets high enough to erode it and when that happens. I'll be driving over the Wolds around 9pm tomorrow night, so I'll need to remember the tripod and cable release.
  3. Brutal frost and freezing fog here this morning that's slow to clear. Looking like we might get something in the way of snow showers overnight tonight.
  4. Not here, they're not. I guess I forget how big a county Lincs is. Very wintery evening here, with snow settling and it's very windy with a biting chill. Only a dusting at the moment, but the radar suggests a decent covering overnight. Feels like mid-January.
  5. What forecast are you getting that from, because the local radio and TV forecasts have both identified a snow risk from overnight tonight.
  6. Back at Saltfleetby today and the key feature is the wind strength, we’ve had sustained wind speeds of over 45mph for the last two hours with our highest gust of 57mph. It’s painfully cold out there today, so of course there’s a flood alert for the coast this evening. Working that is going to be tough.
  7. Pretty wild day with very impressive drifting. Photo below taken alongside the B1200 between Manby and Saltfleetby where visibility was about 10 feet in places.
  8. Three inches or so on the Lincs Coast today, now dry but extensive drifting in the strong easterly. It’s absolutely perishing in the wind and drifting snow is making travel on the coast road very tricky north of Mablethorpe.
  9. About three inches fell overnight in Louth, which will make my drive out to Saltfleetby this morning fun and games, but it's certainly the deepest snow we've had since 2013. Looking at the radar, It looks like it's going to be a tricky old day...
  10. Light dusting overnight here, which makes this a very disappointing spell so far for us, given the Synoptics.
  11. Light dusting here this morning, and flurries on and off for the last hour.
  12. It's the former - you can track the ppn on the 18z GFS run and it now looks like it's heading more SE rather than SSE, if it verifies that way, of course. It also looks slightly more extensive, thankfully for us.
