  1. Hurricane Irma

    Irma now up to 180mph sustained winds http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCPAT1+shtml/051445.shtml?
  2. Hurricane Irma

    http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/east/catl/h5-loop-rb.html I cannot tell if it's actually undergoing eyewall replacement or not? Seemed like it weakened slightly so maybe it has. The eye is so small it's tricky to see! NHC were expecting it to take place to be fair.
  3. Was not expecting this for Norwich! Couple of cms at least and building quickly!!! EDIT: REALLY big flakes now too!
  4. Can confirm sleety snow in west Norwich Shockingly!
  5. Well, I'm hoping to maybe see a flake or two in Norwich. Stranger things have happened, but the current forecast is for the heavier stuff to be further south. That is if things go to plan, though, and this appears to be an extremely unpredictable situation.
  6. Well, it is the GFS we're talking about here
  7. Just when you thought we were maybe getting slightly better with all those colder winters, our long period of mild winters bring us back to a one small snowflake = panic affair. Modern britishness at its best.
  8. Yes Ian Brown is an absolute Netweather legend in my opinion! Hoping to see something today. Keeping an open mind re snowfall...
  9. I'm a lurker in this particular thread, although I haven't been posting very often recently. However monitoring the models from a tentative distance even I can tell ALL the models have set something up as early as T120 and I am looking forward to how this pans out past this point. I think there is now very high likelihood that some sort of good northerly is on the cards (with a good chance of snow). How this reloads is another matter but just to remind you about how the past few winters went

    Yes one heck of a rain/hail storm that just passed through Norwich!! Might have heard faint thunder as well but not sure...
  14. Oh my, what have I come into here!! nearly 1,000 people reading this thread haha! Very good runs from the models tonight, and -10c 850s I see, must be a sign of something, and cross model ageement?? Cold spell approaching? Maybe.
  15. Mhm this is a good sign for me then! Fingers crossed I see some flakes haha
