  1. Sun coming out in Ashford. Angry looking towers to my east. Let’s see...
  2. Not sure we have the topography for that to happen here in the UK. It's not just about difference in air mass temperature. It's about having a very warm and moist air mass that is capped by dryer air aloft, building masses amount of CAPE which is unleashed when the cap is eroded by the strong upper winds. Like a shaken fizzy bottle and the lid comes off! We just don't get that special mix of conditions and nor are we likely to as it has more to do with geography than climate change. However the mechanism you describe could result in more flooding events. Anyway I'm eroding the thread! I'm not convinced on any electrics today however large rainfall amounts over a local area are a real risk. On top of the deluge this morning is why we have an Amber alert.
  3. Christ. Watching that radar is like pulling teeth! Just melts away mid channel, reminds me of watching imported storms in the summer!
  4. If anyone wants sobering up here is a day 7 forecast chart from January 2017 and what actually occurred!
  5. It’s nuts in Ashford right now. Imagine a burst of heavy rain, now turn it into snow, impressive! More to come yet!
  6. Lol, I’ll never get bored, had a blast today but when you run your own business it all becomes a bit more serious.
  7. Well, looks like another pasting for us in Ashford again! Hoping for another inch or so but to be honest, bunked off today I’ve got to get s..t done tomorrow!
  8. Looks like all the gravy for the far SE for the next few hours. Long night ahead yet and we await the exact placement of the CV zone yet.
  9. To be honest I wasn’t expecting much from this set up in Ashford, right on the SE side of the higher risk area and winds looked too Easterly for us out here further east. However, wind direction is a bit more NE and showers seem to be lining up and I’m a bit more hopeful. Limited time offer though as winds are expected to veer more east then SE. Need to pile in those showers while we can, 0.5 Kentimeters in the last shower!
  10. Evening all I’m booked on a fishing trip launching from Dungeness on Sunday. Really hope the wind gets up and it’s cancelled because the thought of standing on a rocking boat in freezing temps is not my idea of fun! Come on easterly wind, blow and bring snow, I don’t wanna go (fishing)!
  11. Speaking as a resident Ashfordian we do best in a NE wind. Current outlook is good but maybe not as good as it could be. The extreme nature of this event though would suggest that the diffence between Lyminge and Ashford will be negligible the key diffence being altitude, not a big factor in this situation. That would give you the advantage in more marginal outlooks though.
