I have a feeling if you don't grab this soon somebody else will

 

"Wasn't it enough that we lived through the wettest December & January for over 200 years that no one alive has experienced?"

 

Very good but I'm high and dry (Thankfully) compared to many others, so I'll let somebody from another flood-prone county have that accolade, I think it perhaps should read 250 plus years, but that's just nitpicking.

This is definetly one of the windiest and vile days so far this winter, which is saying something this year.

Even in the middle of urban Bristol, the wind is ferocious at times, with strong gusts blowing debry around.

Add to that squally cold rain and it really isn't a day for a picnic in the park.

Not long to go now before a slow ease of the strongest winds, although remaining breezy for the rest of the day.

Then tomorrow it's a game of chase the snowflake before we do it all again later on Friday.

Bristol (Clifton) suspension bridge is currently closed due to high winds.

Extremely rare for that to close.

Railway line to Severn Beach also closed due to trees on the line.

Old Severn Crossing also closed due to high winds.

Numerous roads around the West Country affected by fallen trees etc. Too many to list individually.

Looking like an awkward commute home for many tonight.

Sun is poking through the clouds an the winds easing a bit after what was a pretty awful morning.  I was out in the field earlier with the drawstrings on my hood done up so tight that I looked like Kenny from Southpark, I had such a miniscule face.  The icy rain being blown into my face was painful.

 

I've got tubs lining the window sills catching the rain coming in and we have a moat around the house.  We have put pallets outside the door to walk on between the house and the car.  Wind gusts were just shy of 70mph at one point.

AJ is currently filming a squall passing over him and here are some radar grabs showing what's about just now within that area of the region.

just posted up in the severe thread.....large hail and a funnel cloud report just to the west of Lyneham around 20 mins ago.....there's no useable footage sadly as it was mainly hidden by the treeline but I'm sure it was a funnel cloud as opposed to an intense hail shaft

Sun is out here, just 10mm of rain. I'm going to need a substantial amount to reach the target of 50 to 80mm which the MO projected to fall from yesterday until Saturday.

MO has me down for heavy snow tomorrow morning for a whole hour! Further up the moor there is potential of snow on and off for 12 hours . If this cold zonal then its certainly interesting for those at altitude.

 

Backed up by Euro4. Exmoor and mendips as well in on the action

55mph at 14:29pm

Still windy, but not as strong.

Rain has eased now and its getting brighter, only had 5mm of rain in total today.

 

The worst looks to have missed us this time, looking forward to another dry spell for the next 24 hours or so.

Just saw the news about the suspension bridge.  I saw the BBC highlighting something hanging or stuck on the bridge, did anyone see? Got no sound in the office on TV.

I know our weather has been bad but i reckon Jersey /Guernsey have had it far far worse ( wonder what their 2/3month rainfall totals are!)

Everytime we have rain i notice they have red and pinks and blues showing over their regions, must be pure cloudbusts there but prolonged!!!

I noticed on the radar a segment of even more torrential rain (hail too) at the back edge of the front as it whizzed away to the East so guess that was what provided your large hail and funnel cloud!

 

The strongest winds here came immediately after the persistent torrential rain stopped and there has followed a sunny hour with a few hail showers which are racing Eastwards at approx 60mph judging by the NW Radar zoomed in.

 

The temperature has yo-yoed again, after a cold start to the day it reached 8.4c as the front cleared but it is down to 6.9c now.

Horrible here, the rain was very heavy for a couple of hours, surely racked up some relatively high totals! Seems so, as the local stream flooded once again! Very strong winds as well, debatably the strongest of the winter - power went out a couple of times at college. Take care all, vile conditions to be out in!
