North West Regional Weather Discussion 18/12/13


Recommended Posts

Further to my post last night, it looks like there was a wave in the flow for the south. Don't know what charts I was looking at! Anyway, this had the effect of slackening the isobars further north thus ruining stormy prospects here. Even tomorrow is looking like a non-event for the south of the region, though you never know.

 

And yes, I did say "ruining". I'll happily admit I like a good storm. I know some people will be thinking "But what about the potential for death and destruction?" but look at it another way; if we don't get the worst conditions somewhere else will. I'm sure Scotland and NI are fed up getting constantly battered at the moment, and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Friday's storm going the same way (that's still to be decided though). All things considered, given how many Altantic storms there have been we've got off pretty lightly so far. It's like that scene in Pulp Fiction where the guy bursts out of the bathroom shooting at the two gangsters but all of the bullets miss.

 

And enjoy the snow if you get some, but I'm sure I won't be seeing any as long as I have a hole where the sun don't shine.

 

Humbug! :)

2 people has died from the severe weather which is located in Snowdonia and the Lake District which is not under the weather warning. I'm feel sad for them. They didn't know what's coming. Posted Image

 

 

Come on now, of course sympathies to the families, but the Snowdonia death looks unrelated to the weather....and as RAMP says even it was, there are countless days when weather is too bad to be in the hills but it does not warrant a weather warning,

 

As i said earlier, so far the meto have been spot on, to implicate them in two deaths as you did is beyond stupid.

Getting fairly lively here now with wind increasing and gusty along with rain.  Looks like a stormy night in greater Manchester

I was just going to post something very similar myself.Was out earlier and it was a decent nighs weather but has certainly took a turn for the worse this last half hour or so.As for tomorrow, looks like being very windy and possibly even a chance of snow for some.

Is it really meant to pep up this aft as its calm here at the moment.

Not hugely so for our region....north of scotland, Northern ireland and North Wales coasts expected to see strongest wind.   Coasts, Cumbrian fells and the Peak District will possibly see some strong gusts, but nothing too wild.

 

Does feel colder out
