  1. It took a while but first named Atlantic storm is on the map, TS Don. ESE of Barbados, its way south and likely to stay south with the track being West. This storm developed very quickly. Some strengthening expect but unlikely to become a Hurricance. it is fairly common for named storms to take stay south in the early part of the season, so nothing unusual there. We have stopped writing new property insurance busieness in Grenada, st Lucia, Barbados and St. Vincent until storm passes. The talk on Twitter now (Philip Klotzbach) is that the season shows more signs of active usual activity.
  2. Nothing came of 94L not even and rainy weekend, here in Antigua. In fact cloudless skies this afternoon and 34c !! 94L might however reappear later this week around the Bahamas. Onto the next one.
  3. First decent tropical wave of the season now offshore from west africa. From NHC ...TROPICAL WAVES... A tropical wave that exited the coast of Africa yesterday extends from 13N20W to 04N20W, moving westward at 15 to 20 kt. This wave is embedded in a deep moisture surge and inverted 700 mb trough. An area of numerous moderate and isolated strong convection is noted from 03N to 10N between 15W and 25W.
  4. Living and working for a leading insurer based in Antigua for the next 3 years. Only a few weeks to go before it's all eyes west Africa coast for those first tropical waves. It's all the talk in the office, plus earthquakes!
  5. Great input this year, catacol.!
  6. Check out hotel artic, Illulissat, Greenland. - 32 today and the bay completely frozen. It doesn't always  do that.

      Thanks. I am having a look :)

  7. A bit disappointing. A dusting on the tops of the Cotswolds and now skies have cleared and temp dropped to 1c.
  8. Parts of the Cotswolds are over 200 meters (Cleeve hill is over 300) so pretty confident we will see some decent snow this afternoon.
  9. So, 10 days on from 30th December = 9th Jan. and a scandi high favoured. Seems like a great shout GP.
  10. If all goes to plan the Brecon Beacons should see snow - right height, right location. I live just north of Cheltenham and quite often Cotwolds (Cleeve Hill) and Malverns can be clear but look across to the black mountains they are often white.
  11. To my eyes we are about to see a significant change in Synoptics so far seen this winter. The blocking highs of December are moving and for the first time we can look north west for our weather and with this originating from Greenland directions it will be a very raw and seasonal mix of all sorts, which has to include snow. Both GFS and ECM are now showing this change for next week and I wouldn't look beyond 192 as that rarely varifies. So a long awaited change on its way and it's a wintry one !
  12. Thanks. Certainly did a better job copying across that I did.
  13. RE the link don't think that is displaying properly. Basis Joe is saying big flip for Western Europe with Eurasia vortex setting up in Scandinavia in first week of January. Big chill coming. We shall see
  14. something for discussion. Happy Christmas all
