  1. That was a fantastic lightning display in Newcastle, constant lightning & thunder.
  2. Best storm in ages in Newcastle; there was some small hail, torrential rain, plenty of cloud to ground lightning and the thunder boomed constantly. It's only 22 degrees now so very refreshing as well!
  3. The rain has turned to wet snow in Keswick. Amazing to think that it was almost 20 degrees two days ago.
  4. There isn't much left around Keswick, just a few patches on Skiddaw.
  5. I was under that snow to the NW of London (I live in Warwickshire during term time) and we got about half a cm, certainly nothing to be jealous of!
  6. The year before last certainly wasn't poor; we had some very heavy snow in January 2013 which stuck around for ages, and also snow in December and March. I think it was often marginal, but it was still a good winter compared with the average. It's far too early to give up on this winter too - in most winters we don't actually get any significant snow before Christmas.
  7. Friday night until Sunday morning could be very snowy for our region if the precipitation curls back around the low on the NE wind as shown on the GFS.
  8. The 18z GFS also gives us some front edge snow as the front moves in on Boxing Day - something to keep an eye on for County Durham & Northumberland especially as a few recent model runs have shown this.
  9. I wouldn't be surprised to see a light wintry flurry on Thursday to give an official white Christmas - hopefully we'll get a more significant northerly next week, although the ensembles are all over the place at the minute!
  10. Terrific lightning display from Port de Pollença in Majorca, I think the storm is actually over in Menorca!

    1. 95 Degrees

      95 Degrees

      I remember being in Port De Pollenca in August 2005 and the storms were incredible, as was the intensity of the rain, still the best thunderstorm/rainI've exprienced up until this point.

      Port de Pollenca is a stunning place. The Pine walk is beautiful and would love to live there. Quite a few celebrities often found in the area!

  11. Frequent lightning display over towards the coast to my north east (I'm in Newcastle), and I can see another smaller storm coming up to the south of it.
  12. Some thunderstorms have popped up in Northumberland and the west of County Durham this evening.
  13. A much sunnier afternoon today, but it was still chilly (about average for start of April)
  14. Grim and cold here in the east, was the same up at Ponteland earlier.
  15. Still getting the occasional rumble of thunder so there must still be some lightning about.
  16. Still getting the occasional flash in Newcastle as the storm moves away inland. That was quite a potent storm including a couple of close cg strikes which has set a few car alarms off!
  17. Some of that rain is falling as sleet / frozen bits in Newcastle this evening.
  18. The rain has turned to snow in Warwickshire, didn't expect that today!

  19. Had that heavy snow shower here too, started as sleet though. Sun back out now but it's only 2C. Very festive!
  20. I for one hope that the storm misses us, there's nothing more unpleasant than severe gales in my opinion. Also I've been in the Midlands for a month so far and it never seems to stop raining!
