  1. Just saw a beautiful fork over Aycliffe. Only very faint thunder. I can't get the radar to work to see the track. Wind has just picked up.
  2. Just wondering if anyone knows how long this is supposed to last? Snowing heavily in Aycliffe & have friends trying to come through from Stanhope. Cheers
  3. Far North Of England - Weather Chat

    Same in Aycliffe, I'm not usually scared of storms but this one is very menacing!
  4. Severe Atlantic storms 8-10th January

    In newton Aycliffe and it's definitely breezy, originally from the north coast of Antrim so this is making me quite homesick! Had to batten down the hatches earlier now I'm enjoying the storm. Just wondering if anyone knows how much stronger it could get?
  5. I have no way of measuring but the wind here in dl5 is howling. I'm originally from the north coast of Ireland so I'm not easily impressed - this has def got me checking the forecast and watching out the window. It's been very windy here since about 3pm. Steadily worse until now. Def making me homesick lol
  6. Rolling thunder on DL5 - moving north easterly glad I left work early
  7. I've stopped looking at the radar doomed to read storm reports rather than make them. I moved here from Northern Ireland and my home town has had thunderstorms everyday for the last week. Maybe it's me lol
  8. Guess ill be sleeping with the bedroom curtains open and hoping I get woken up by any action that occurs lol
  9. Had a heavy shower and one measly rumble of thunder oh well. Maybe next time lol
  10. Torrential rain and thunder in Carlisle - heading due east - will be sitting patiently waiting to see if we can get our share fingers crossed!
  11. Thanks summer sun :-) I won't stay up late tonight hoping then lol
  12. It's so humid! Lots of towering clouds floating past.... If ever I thought there might be a storm it's today, I would love to see some nighttime lightening. Any thoughts?
  13. Power cut for about 10 mins in Dl5 - there was a bright flash of lightening. Seemed to die after that. Hopeful for more to come. :-) makes a nice change to have some exciting weather for a change!
  14. Electricity went off for about 10 mins after some cg lightening. It's gone very quiet....
  15. Very bright lightening right overhead - long low rumble of thunder. Heavy rain has tailed off but I get the feeling it's just taking a breath lol
