    Incredibly windy here this evening. Power went out about an hour ago and has just come back on.  I didn't think it was going to get this gusty down here in the south :80:

    Good Evening Southwesterners and Central Southerners,

     

    I normally post on the Southeast/EA thread, but as my local football team (Chelmsford City) are travelling to Weston Super Mare to play a match in the Vanarama South league on Saturday afternoon I would appreciate any observations as to whether the game is likely to go ahead.

     

    I have provisionally booked to travel on the Supporters Club which leaves at 09.00 hours, but do not want to travel all the way there if there is a serious likelihood that it may be postponed.

     

    Kind Regards

     

    Dave

    Dave I wish our internet had not gone down as I'd have replied far far sooner! Sorry.

    Weston's pitch is notorious this season after the late FA Cup postponement and they have had several more off since then.

    They probably have light rain tonight then there is the squally front in the morning before a sunny afternoon so more water for the pitch.

    Surely they will have an early inspection to prevent unnecessary travelling by your team etc.

    On another note, what a crazily balmy day and even weirder was the temperature rising further after sunset along with a gale blowing!

    Made it to 12.4C just before the real gale started, and since then it's retreated back to 11 point somethings, fluctuated up and down. 11.3C now. I've lost count how many times this winter it's been warmer at night than during the following day! I do hope my one lie-in of the week is not interrupted by rain against my window tomorrow morning.

    That is insane for January 9th, a potential record-breaker perhaps? As I type, I'm sitting in Air Temps of 14.1c which is the warmest it has been all day. Pretty darn blustery out there now even this far inland and it could be a bit of a testing Friday night rush-hour for some.

     

    Was pretty remarkable and quite possibly as this page suggests the 1964-2007 record for Yeovilton was just below 15c but they reached 16.1c yesterday.

     

    Reached 16.3c in the end here

     

    Had a brief drizzly squall recently that dropped the temp a degree to a freezing 12.9c lol (equalling the overnight min, it had risen back to 13.9c)

     

    Quite windy this morning, wasn't too bad yesterday here as we seem to be relatively sheltered from W/WSW winds.

    Cold front very weak down here. Much more so than expected. Past a short while back with no more than a whimper. Very windy and temperature falling back quickly though.

    Yea but all relative really. I was expecting a strong line squall for all with hail etc. As with all the cold fronts down here they get quickly weakened down by that stubborn belt of High pressure continually to our South. Pressure already up past 1015mbs and rising rapidly. It was certainly an unnoticed affair as it passed here.

    same here on west mendip Gibby ,a non event realy ,but chins up gang a very interesting week next week coming up and could get very news worthy ,but i feel the azores high needs to shove off a little .midweek storm still possible at round about later wednesday ,but at five days away positioning critical .tonights late night fax should tell us or hint at possible track , i feel the human input from the met is usually not far off the mark but they should have a fair idea come later sunday .well IF current models come off we could see some surprises next week later ,as any features capable of producing our craved after snow will appear nearer the time .so lets hope model runs ticking away right now at the time of this post show a slight deflation of our friend MR Azores . :cold:  :rofl:

    Temps been falling all day, didn't notice any squall or rainfall line here. Noticeably cooler out there right now. Here's to some excitement this week.

    V windy here early hours and into daylight early morn.

    Fence down in two places. Snapped posts so pretty gusty i'd say.

    From Ian in the mod thread... Could have a couple happy members in here:

    Good agreement now between 12z EC and UKMO global/4km modelling on snow-prone areas of south next week (Exmoor/Quantocks; Dartmoor; Mendips & environs). Assessment of E4 suggests circa 2-5cm possible over these uplands. Some wet snow/sleet still likely to lower levels in same general area(s) late Tuesday as WBFL drops to ca. 200m.

    Time for me to get back model watching it seems as things get interesting next week.

    I miss the good old days of Ian F's posts in this thread of the snow forecast for the region... It's been a couple of years now since we've had anything decent. Let's hopevthings get upgraded

    Is mulls on holiday yet?!

    Interesting tweets from Ian on twitter 

     

     @fergieweather

    W COUNTRY Focus this week: 1. Late Tues, when wintry showers may align up Bristol Channel, with snow poss, e.g. Mendips plateau; N Som/B&NES

     

    W COUNTRY CONT'D ...2. Weds night-Thurs, with deep area of low pressure to N threatening strong winds (gales/severe gales) for SW/S England

    The signal re late Tues remains closely aligned in UKMO HRES and EC prognoses. The issue we are watchful for is favourable flow for alignment of showers directly E from Bristol Channel (EC has flow slightly more backed). WBFL at circa 200m phasing with that, and although we divide E4 snow accumulation by at least 2 in these set-ups (it yields showers that are too 'clumpy'), it would be fair to gauge upland amounts as 2-5cm generally. Mendips looks a strong likelihood; the more backed EC solution extending this N to parts of Cotswolds.
