  1. Evening folks, After a beautiful day here in Southend, I just heard a rumble of thunder and dark clouds are moving in from the south.... FC
  2. Afternoon all, first drops of rain fell here in Southend, but there were not that many, the sun is now trying to fight back... Cheers FC update, now I am not sure if that was thunder or an aircraft (checked FR24 and nothing was close) strange weather indeed
  3. Afternoon all, I hope everyone is staying safe, finally a properly warm day here on the Thames Estuary, you know when real warmth arrives because it comes into the house when you have the doors and windows open. I can safely say that this is the first properly warm day. The weather was great yesterday but no real warmth got into the house. That finally happened an hour ago here in Southend, but with all the cloud bubbling up in the area I think we could be seeing some wet stuff a bit later heralding the start of the cool down. Take care all FC
  4. Morning all, A hefty hail, rain and some snow falling in Southend at the moment and lots of wind... Update - now just rain..... Cheers FC
  5. Evening all, It is all very quiet here in the Southend area a few splashes of rain but nothing as dramatic as some other folks have had Cheers FC
  6. huge crack of thunder over the City of London just now, I predict heavy rain in 30 mins when I head out of office Cheers FC
  7. A bit more rain falling in Southend, but nothing dramatic so far.... the wind is incredibly warm... Cheers FC
  8. Evening all, First rumble of distant thunder and the first few drops of rain starting to fall in the Southend area Cheers FC
  9. Morning all, I timed my departure to work very badly, as I stepped out of the front door at 5:00 the heavens opened, I barely got 20 yards up the road and had to retreat and get changed and switch to the car. I did not see any thunder and lightning just heavy rain. When I got to Westcliff station, which is at the bottom of a hill, a river of water had formed a waterfall off the edge of the platform onto the tracks, I have never see that before. Cheers all FC
  10. evening all, Interesting drive from Southend to London this afternoon, I had almost everything, sun, rain, hail, sleet, even a few snow flakes, could have sworn I saw a flash of lightning, but can't be sure on that. Then on the way back this evening I saw the gritters were out on the A127. Highest temp today was 10 degrees, and the lowest (so far) was 2 degrees, according to my car. Interesting weather ? Cheers FC
  11. must get back to work and stop staring out of the window, looks like it has turned back to rain here in Blackfriars.. FC
  12. Not the best pic in the world, but does show the snow attempting to settle on the grass
  13. holy smoke, we have a bit of thunder snow here in Central London, and it is turning white..... Edit... Well I am not sure if you can call 1 flash of lightning and 1 very loud clap of thunder a thunderstorm, but it is still snowing (very wet snow) quite impressed as this was not forecast, the ground is too warm for too much to settle but it is having a go on the grassy areas. FC
  14. Morning all, No scrapping the ice on the windscreen this morning, in fact the car was showing a balmy 6 degrees at 5.30. I saw quite a lot of low cloud and mist around as I caught the train up to the big smoke this morning. Have a good day one and all... Cheers FC
  15. Morning all, I stupidly did not check in here last night (I know very remiss), so I left home in Westcliff this morning in the dry and with no coat, by the time I got to Leigh Station it was pouring down so now I am sporting the bedraggled drowned rat look for the rest of the day, lesson learned. Hopefully I will not catch any chills or colds as a result of my silliness, but I really do not like wearing coats.. Cheers FC
