    Some people are disgusting, let's make money by taking people sandbags and letting them flood. Makes me sick.

    Morning..

    Had some sleet here last night in a very heavy squall around midnight, the wind roared and made the house creak so I got up to look and it was sleeting! Massive flakes in the rain. I recorded it for proof and also in case they're the only flakes I see this winter..will post it later when I work out how!

    Had a long hail shower this morning with a decent covering, maybe I'll submit that to the snow cup :rofl:

    Hi Surrey, what do they represent then as they are virtually the same as the Meto gust charts?

     

    I believe it is the higher winds within the storm it's self, it gives an indication as to where the upper winds are

    They would likely not upgrade to amber until they are sure, and closer to the time. As we saw for Wales yesterday, the red was issued in the morning.Mal

    Hi Mal slight disagreement there. Amber warnings were out on monday for yesterdays storm. would not surprise me if we went amber today

    Good morning,

    Very dark and gloomy and chilly here, wind gusted all night but not as bad as some storms we have had, still gusting a bit, cant hear any rain.Had one massive gust in the night which dislodged the loft hatch and woke me.

    As to these terror storms, are they like terror-dactyls?

    Yea I reckon warnings will get changed today. A few rumbles just gone midnight and lightning alarm was gong off with some stuff bobbing along in the channel.

    Luke check out google they have had people saying its not just a case of putting sandbags down they have to be put down a certain way to be effective.

    Looks like we may get a dry slot this afternoon, here's hoping eh.

    Based on previous days, I expect METO to upgraded warnings within the next few hours.

    70mph gusts in land is looking possible at the moment, which is certainly a bit worrying.

    Morning all. :)

    Early cloud and drizzle has departed, leaving a sunny day, with just a few wisps of cirrus. It'd be pleasant, if it could last.

    Just had that heavy hail shower Surrey, temp has dropped as a result, brr! Water levels of the Thames have dropped a little here, which is great. Big concerns about tomorrow's deluge/stormy winds. Just what we don't need!

    Lovely and sun here best make the most of it and get and tidy the garden back up.

    Weekly newspaper had me rather confused, 3 families had to evacuated due to flooding , yet although sand bags issued, our cllr Jason ablewhite district council leader is yet to be convinced that dredging the great river Ouse will prevent flooding.

    This is what he

    Quoted. . If you dredge a river right through it can help with normal rainfall ?

    Afternoon each. Out at 09:00 this morning and it was a tad chilly. But nice and sunny and a little less chilly on way home. Dry here but gusty.

    I see we are in for another battering tomorrow. Hope you folks who are in flood zones are ok. Surely this must end soon. Personally, I like this rough weather, but it must be b***dy horrific for flood victims.

    Anyway, you're not forgotten by us lot on NW. :) take care.

    Tomorrow's storm is looking like the biggest of the winter so far for our region with potentially 65-70mph gusts even in and around the London area which would probably mean 85-90mph along the south coast is quite possible, I'm certain that MetO will update and upgrade the warnings within the next 12 hours.

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
