South East & East Anglia Regional Discussion - December 29th 2012>

Recommended Posts

Welcome…..this wet and windy stuff is getting a bit much now, maybe we should all go in search of some snow. Unfortunately due to the fact no one on the Netweather forum team would volunteer to drive the bus (you know how we all like a little drinkies) it means you would have to walk….

Before we set off:
please ensure that your location is in your profile, this is especially useful when reporting floods or snow fall..... if we know where you are we can come and rescue you (You can do this by clicking on your profile, then clicking "edit profile". Add your location and save).

Follow the forum team leader’s instructions at all times:

You do not need any particular experience or equipment to join in, although it’s a good idea to wear layers of warm and waterproof clothing that you can take off or put on depending on the latest forecast.

A pair of walking poles could come in handy for checking snow or flood water depth before you go striding forth!

Please note Ski Doo’s and Dinghy’s are not provided!

Top Tip: Don't forget to take energy bars and drinks; they will help to avoid the inevitable mood swings after looking in the MOD threads.

So what are we waiting for………let’s go!

River Thames in Egham and Staines in now on a flood alert...I think with the rain we got coming it's going to flood quite a large amount of land near me..

Windy but dry this morning. Made a nice change for the dog walk. Currently 11.0c

I've checked on my snow risk forecast and 1/1 has gone from 6% to 3%. I am hanging onto a snowflake by a thread. :D

Very minor Coast that. Only at FL30/40 which will only be on final approach.

Flying through the jetstream in the middle of the night is not for the fainthearted! Flying DFW-LHR during THAT tornado season in April 2011 was interesting!

Looked at the other board sounds really depressing there!! no cold for at least two weeks all the cold being pumped into the North Atlantic fuelling the Atlantic express, saying no sign of the pole warming yet, the pattern needs to change and its not

Not sure which model output the last two posts are referring to but I see dry High Pressure dominated weather for most folk in this region from New Year's Day onwards.

Before that however, more deluges, some strong winds and brief wintriness, maybe Thunder too. good.gif

Azores high only holds on for a while before the Atlantic comes in again for another onslaught, might become a little colder ie normal Temps for Jan then wind and rain

Something odd appeared on the simple overview GFS forecast this morning:

Please don't say anything to anyone, it will spread rumours!!!!!!

The atlantic has been relentless and it continues. Seems some of the aquifers are now as full as they have been in a long time and rivers like the thames loddon etc in my patch have so much baseflow that there is becoming even less capacity for any overland flow and runoff...not to mention the fact rivers are constantly being topped up from this too!

Yes true, but that is showing at about t+240 I believe. search.gif

Let us hope the cold comes only for it to be at least a little seasonal for once.

Here's the GFS 6z Air Pressure readings for London as an example of what is becoming a solid trend in the reliable. Rather concerning though, the MetO aren't quite buying the settled scenario just now, with the HP cell being further South, largely over France.
