  1. Started off as rain last night and I woke up at 1am and it had turned to snow leaving a slight covering of snow/slush. Central Cumbria with some elevation has had a decent fall, my other half has just got to work in Penrith there’s a few inches there.
  2. Minus 5.5c this morning, stunning winters day but very chilly hasn’t got above freezing all day. Still very much frozen where the sun hasn’t touched.
  3. Drizzle and 2 degrees, looking forward to some sunnier days and sharp frosts... maybe get some snow in March/April as usual lol
  4. North American Weather (U.S.A & Canada)

    Look at those temperatures!! Frigid or what....
  5. Feeling a bit colder today, poor visibility misty and 3 degrees.
  6. Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    I think the Irish Met have named most of the named storms we've seen so far this winter, they have lower thresholds for wind speeds/warnings. I expect if the Irish Met hadn't have named Eleanor then the UK Met would've given they issued an amber warning for gusts in excess of 80 to 90mph, and you could argue they would've issued a red warning if the storm had impacted the UK during the day at a busier time. Named storm or not, any warning be it yellow amber or red is issued to make people aware of the potential for disruption to their daily lives, obviously the higher up the scale more serious impacts are expected which may prevent us going about our day to day lives, and pose serious risks.
  7. Bit calmer tonight thank god! Ended up having some sleeping tablets last night, Eleanor was rather loud.. sunny cold & frosty come the weekend, nice change 😁

  9. Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    Well my fence didn’t survive Eleanor’s wrath! Probably not the best idea using that stuff, acted like a sail and brought it down! House opposite has lost some tiles off the roof.
  10. Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    Yikes, very strong gusts now in Carlisle! Was trying to go to sleep...
  11. Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    72mph gust well inland over Ireland @ Ballyhaise about 80m elevation.
  12. Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    I believe they were around 60mph, I haven’t seen any model prediction for the wind speeds we’ve just seen over Ireland.
  13. Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    Wind speeds/gusts are quite a bit higher than some of the latest model guidance would’ve had you believe! 90-100mph is quite a noteworthy event.
  14. Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    Met office have issued an amber warning now, risk of 80-90mph gusts! https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/mobile/warnings/uk
