  1. Sudden flash of lightning and loud thunder in Gravesend... can't say I was expecting that given it's only been lightly spitting with rain.
  2. Quite a few streaks of lightning and loud thunder here in Gravesend.
  3. That's an ice day confirmed here, it's been absolutely bitter.
  4. Current Heathrow TAF is as follows: EGLL 121056Z 1212/1318 23008KT 9999 -RA BKN020 TEMPO 1212/1216 4000 RA BKN008 BECMG 1215/1217 33016G26KT TEMPO 1216/1220 1200 SNRA BKN004 PROB30 TEMPO 1217/1220 33022G36KT 0500 SN BKN001 BECMG 1219/1222 29012KT 9999 NSW FEW020 TEMPO 1307/1309 30018G28KT 1200 -SN BKN004 BECMG 1309/1311 31020G32KT So they expect rain until 4pm then rain/snow until 8pm with lowish (1.2km) visibility and a chance snow will drop visibility to 500m. If that happened they'd definitely need to space out flights more and thus cancel a few.
  5. Very loud here. Was relieved to see the only damage was a knocked over wheelie bin... But just noticed the shed roof is at a bit of a strange angle :-(
  6. Warning issued by Met Office for Monday now too:
  7. Picking up my new car on Saturday. All good reviews, apart from one comment on Honest John that it 'isn't good on snow'. If that doesn't guarantee a month of blizzards starting from Sunday, nothing will!
  8. -3.4degC this morning compared to a forecast of 0C... with the very marginal situation tomorrow, hopefully we'll see a similar overestimate of temperatures by the forecast...
  9. Just transitioned from sleet to light snow in Gravesend.
  10. Things seem to be getting exciting in the MOD thread, with cold looking like it could extend down south. Though I think this might be the first year I'm (temporarily) not a coldie... not until my central heating gets installed in three weeks as I'm getting tired of wearing two jumpers and a hat indoors and am worried how cold it'll get in here if we weren't having such a mild winter!
  11. My area is only forecasting 40mph gusts at the worst. The fact that it's still under the recently updated warning zone suggests that there's still some uncertainty over the track of the trough even at this late stage. So perhaps all is not lost with regards to the white stuff!
