    Got a reasonable dusting at Warwick University on the edge of Coventry last night. Hardly anything was settling in Leamington when I left around 2am, so I was quite surprised to see this.
  2. Grasmere often seems to have more lying snow than Keswick - I assume it must be slightly higher above sea level than surrounding areas
  3. It did in Grasmere, but Keswick was completely clear yesterday in the town
  4. Looks like a decent snowfall in Keswick and Grasmere on the webcams
  5. It's been a long time since I posted in here, I've been so busy! Drawn back by the prospect of snow... The North East should have a good chance of snow as it's much easier to get convective snow from the North Sea than to rely on frontal snow, as the rest of the country will have to do. Unfortunately I'm heading south tomorrow to go back to university after Christmas - bad timing or what!
  6. Bit late, but we drove through a fairly big thunderstorm yesterday on the A69 near Hexham with large hail, torrential rain, and fairly frequent lightning. It seemed to die on the radar before it reached Newcastle though!
  7. I can see a flash of lightning every 1-2 minutes to my south west now, it looks very distant, I presume it's from those storms over the south Pennines.
  8. The rain has become quite torrential here.
  9. Torrential rain in Newcastle, the showers are really intensifying as they reach the North East coast. I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of rogue lightning strikes (and there have been a couple in North Yorkshire).
  10. Some convection happening across the North East again, ahead of the front. Cells popping up near York and in Northumberland at the moment.
  11. Did anyone else get around 2 minutes of extremely strong wind? There's loads of damage to the trees outside and the garden furniture has blown across the garden. Heavy hail starting here now and the lightning is directly overhead. Can't believe we've had 2 possible supercell storms in one evening. (Or 3, was the first one also suspected supercell?)
  12. Another storm approaching from the south, this one looks like a direct hit, very strong winds now, sounds like a lorry driving past but it just goes on and on!
  13. Best night time lightning display I have seen in the UK. The storms seem to be skirting over the western suburbs of Newcastle, which is perfect as my house has a good view over towards that direction.
  14. Absolutely incredible lightning to my south west, lightning every 1-2 seconds and increasingly loud thunder. The storms to my east off the coast are still fairly impressive too. I think I've only ever seen night storms like this in Florida.
