So this is it, the end of winter. Time to look forward to Spring.....
Wait, what's this?
So for the time being, we will remain as one for this cold spell. Plenty of potential for substantial snowfall, initially from the east and maybe later from fronts from the south. Possibly 10-20cm up to early Thursday, no point talking about depths for the front later on Thursday but if it does arrive like the UKMO there there could be real carnage.
Anyway, best of luck for everyone in the region. Just a request please, be civil as per the usual notions of showers some will get a lot more than others over the coming days. There is no point in arguing or point scoring here. Just sit back and watch the snow pile in of the north sea in a fashion we haven't seen in years.
During the 28th the weather was rather humid, but there were no signs in our part of the approaching chaos that was to hit the hythe/kent area that night, even though the forecasts warned of possible storms. By late evening about 10pm, I could hear rumbles and decided to look outside to see if it was a Thunderstorm or just some old person putting the bin out. Sure enough from then on, it turned from the odd flash, to strikes and flashes every few mins. One of the most amazing storms I have ever seen in my life. What was really gutting though, was I didn't have a fully charged camera and missed out on many strikes that not only knocked our power out, but set car alarms off!
