  1. Still snowing but is lighter than when I posted earlier, wind is picking up though, or is coming in from a slightly different direction. Could go either way, but there is plenty of snow left in those clouds ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. Whatever happens, don't trust the radar, apparently it's completely dry in my location at the moment, but on further inspection, it's still snowing at a decent intensity!
  3. Still snowing heavily hear in mudeford, settling on all surfaces! This after everything was soaking wet, so don't give up if if things are looking bleak.
  4. Don't usually post in here as my expertise in reading the models is limited to say the least! However, I feel that we are entering a period of great uncertainty, so how anyone is able to say with certainty that, THIS model or THAT model has been proven correct are asking to have egg on their faces! In my opinion, if the output can change at such short notice, then it can easily change back just as quickly, especially with easterlies down-welling from the stratosphere, nothing is certain!

    The hunt for cold - Model discussion (late November)

    What once was a Very angry looking lobe of the vortex out west, is now looking less ominous by the hour! Whatever happens it will be totally fascinating to see how things unfold over the next few days.

    Lol, you are not far off๐Ÿคฃ Warbreck is the highest point at 112ft ,which makes it 4452nd highest point in England ๐Ÿ˜‰ either way it still made a difference from one of the lowest points!

    The hunt for cold - Model discussion (late November)

    I believe so, it also made me realize how important hight is to snow depth, my paper round finished at the highest point in Blackpool, and by the time I got to deliver the morning papers that where obviously deleyed until around 2pm (no kidding) you couldn't even open gates to deliver the papers, absolutely amazing! Also it was the one and only time I have ever experienced true community spirit, checking on the elderly, helping to clear roads and so on, anyway slightly off topic, sorry mods

    I lived in blackpool back in 96, Most amount of snow I ever experienced came from this event, started snowing around 1 pm and didn't stop for over 24hs! Unfortunately I now live on the south coast, unless the next Ice age appears anytime soon, I would say it's likely to be my biggest event! lol But I still enjoy the chase!

    The changing daylight hours thread

    Well I must be a very optimistic person! Even though we are still a few days away from the solstice, today marks the day for the earliest sunset! actually I am also pretty happy after we have passed the autumn equinox, knowing that the rate of change in daylight starts to reduce from that point on ๐Ÿ˜ I agree that the mornings can be a bit unpleasant, but having lighter evenings is much more of use to myself, and probably for most other people.
  10. ๐Ÿ˜ not all that active but lovely deep rumbles of thunder, and rain!
  11. ๐Ÿ™„ The wait continues Back to the weather, a shower has formed just off the coast of Bournemouth, looks very threatening but will it give us any lightning? Nothing in the forecast so probably not ๐Ÿ˜‘
  12. This is what it looks like from here
  13. I'm currently sat at Whitefield moor in the new forest, and I've just heard thunder from the very same cell! It does look messy though.
  14. It's looking rather menacing isn't it! I promised I would take the little one out the next time there was a storm, (she's about to turn 7) but for some reason she's starting to chicken out ๐Ÿ˜‚ Hopefully she won't be too frightened โ›ˆ๏ธโ›ˆ๏ธโ›ˆ๏ธ
  15. I can see that cell near Brighton, and I'm in Christchurch,, it's exploded in the last few minutes!
