  1. Those saying "snowing north of the Downs", let's just say the radar is claiming that there's snow in Redhill, but the old and trusty "naked eye" can't make out any precipitation whatsoever right now!
  2. That must be some showers before the main course tomorrow... but I'll keep the curtains open to see what they do in this part of Surrey none the less!
  3. Well I tried to get a timelapse during the storm earlier over the Hampshire/Dorset borders but seems my camera ran out of battery before the rain fell. Pretty clouds though. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152099977746837&l=670693666080099649
  4. Look at what's written and the matrix for both warnings. The amber warning has slightly lower wind gusts in the warning and is an amber warning because the likelihood is higher. The yellow warning is at the bottom of the matrix for likelihood because the wind speeds are higher. It's still a possibility so worth them putting the warning out.
  5. Ah, that'll be what's dumping a lot of rain on me right now then. No thunder right now mush, will let you know if anything makes it over the sound of the FSU - Clemson college football game I'm watching.
  6. To be fair the rain we've got isn't exactly biblical, even if it is fairly heavy.
  7. So I'm just sitting here at 2ish am, casually chatting with one of my best mates in Colorado when a bright flash lights the room. My reaction: WHAT ON EARTH? Is the power supply in Verwood that bad that the flickering is that noticeable? Mid rant, I hear a huge crack of thunder. So yeah, thunderstorm in East Dorset happened I guess?
  8. Looking at whether BN20 will see any storms this weekend... (in Eastbourne for one weekend only)

      Wait and see!

  9. Somehow managed to get shingles, oh the joy!

      Oh dear that ain't good.. don't touch your eyes whatever you do!

    2. Coast


      Get well soon!

      Hope you get better faster than a bolt of lightning.

  10. Guess which clever idiot is going from Dorset to Nottingham this weekend? After Nottingham getting the storms earlier this week and Dorset this weekend. They're taunting me...

      Nottingham might not be shabby for Sunday :D

    I'm a staunch supporter of breakfast and all it stands for but I struggle to eat in the mornings. At the moment it's a couple of waffles with maple syrup in the week, then the weekend will usually be sausage and bacon with barbecue sauce in a French stick or American style pancakes (with either blueberry, banana, strawberry, occasionally added choc chip) with bacon and maple syrup. Can you guess I like maple syrup? If I can't be bothered, then it's a banana (it was this morning).
  12. Hoping for more strikes tonight than the French Civil Service.

      Are you not getting wet now b_s? It looks like something's building down your way.

  13. Ahhhh Coast get yourself up to Nottingham to go to their brewery tap, The Organ Grinder. It's such a good pub! I was sceptical about Blue Monkey when they first emerged while I was at uni but they've won me over, a whisky barrel aged Guerilla I had at The Organ Grinder was loooooovely.
  14. So when does the Azores High start getting squatter's rights?
