  1. Heavy snow here and sticking too. Multiple accidents reported along the A55. Pete
  2. Massive Thunderstorm here, torrential rain and hail, lane I live in completely flooded. Pete
  3. Temperature has dropped to 25 and it's getting more difficult to see any blue patches of sky. Humidity is off the scale really and we've had a couple of light showers. I've just done a medium wave crackle test and it was negative, there's hardly any breeze to speak of so I reckon that if it happens at all it's going to be a few hours away. We're also in something of a rain shadow here, the Clwydian Hills soak up much of it before it can get here. Pete
  4. 28 degrees a few minutes ago with hazy sunshine. Just got back from Rhyl where the windscreen on our car got hit by a few massive raindrops, a portent of things to come I think. Pete
  5. Survived the storm with the only damage being to my garage roof, however for some reason we lost power at 21:30 and it didn't come back on until 02:15. I'm guessing it was some sort of knock on effect from the storm. Pete
  6. Calmed down here and the Sun is out. Need to go into town now so I should get a good idea of any damage. Interestingly, the large house over the road once had 12 Lombardy Poplars ringing the garden. They were planted sometime in the late 19th century and the first one came down in the great January storm of 1968, the next one in 1975 and gradually their numbers have been reduced to just 2 left standing. I just had a look and both look to have survived , Pete
  7. Sad to report that another large part of Colwyn Bay pier has collapsed into the sea, could well mean the end for this historic listed building. Pete
  8. Section of the M56 near Helsby now closed as is the The Thelwall Viaduct. Seeing reports of local power outages too with traffic lights out at busy junctions. Pete
  9. Garden flooded, part of my garage roof has blown clean off, many branches have come down but thankfully no trees. Many roads around here closed or partially closed with long queues around Queensferry. Wind speed has died down a touch but still some frightening gusts. Pete
  10. National Park Wardens are reporting a 100 mph gust in The Pen-y-Pass, about 5 miles from Capel Curig and very exposed . Pete
  11. Reports from Ellesmere Port of flying trampolines ! Pete
  12. Flintshire Bridge closing now. All rail lines on The Wirral are now closed by fallen trees. Pete
  13. Reports of several trees down on the Wirral Way. Pete
