South East and East Anglia weather discussion/Chat - 1st September 2016 onwards

Recommended Posts

Back from my few days in Wales and it's grey and showery here in Suffolk. Currently 11C and almost calm.

As hoped, there was a fair amount of sunshine over there in the west of the UK so I enjoyed visiting some of the regular haunts from my childhood. Here's Barry Island beach on Monday with a wonderful sky and view across the Bristol Channel towards Somerset. No sign of Gavin & Stacey though! :)

Thanks Mark. Yes hopefully I don't have to drive all the way to the lake district this winter to see proper snow :)

This morning hasn't been as pleasant as the past few days, we've still got the showery theme but even between them the sun isn't coming out like is has been :nonono:The rain is heavy at times and its finally starting to feel more autumnal.. Not sure what i think of the weather at this time of the year now!

No rain at the moment here, didn't feel too cold this morning either. At the moment the front and back door are open, there's quite a breeze but i'm sitting in a t-shirt and not feeling over cold although i am thinking about getting a cardie. Cloudy here now.

Quite a nice morning here with sunny spells and felt warm in the sun. Lots of showers now and grey skies, sadly. Plus the wind is back up, no surprise there lol...

Afternoon squad,

Been on the road a lot today all over the place from Sutton to Bicester this morning we drove through some nutty weather on the motorway crazy rain and some pretty large hail sounded like stones being chucked at the van.

Then sunshine and warm slight breeze, then back to showers again! 

Looks like it is about to come down again!

Nice Thames streamer at the moment, pumping a long string of heavy showers in from the estuary - if only this were mid-Jan instead of mid-Oct!

Rained so heavy here it woke me and my 8 month old up at 4am. No idea how much fell but I wouldn't be surprised jf there were some closed roads locally.

Dreadful earlier this morning - grey, windy, outbreaks of rain and a chilly 9C. A quick check of the satellite shows some clearer skies should hopefully move in for most of us as the day progresses. First signs of brightness here, but looks like the sun is already out in Kent and Surrey. :good:

Was already most sunny here this morning, 7:30 may be earlier. Had a dry night here I think. Plenty of convective clouds about but no convection as of yet.

Rained all morning and that east wind has a bit of a bite to it, despite the sun now making an appearance.

Chilly ENE wind blowing through there has been some quite pokey showers feeding through here, in the last 24 hours if only it was a little later in the year, I think November could be interesting.

not a bad start here today. 

Would be quite anxious currently if I was in Corsica at the moment though. Looks like a severe bow echo front is about to batter it! Saw some incredible lightning on a webcam in Marseille in the early hours of this morning too. 

The estofex forecast down there warns of deadly flash flooding, so would not be surprised to see some of this on the news or weather reports.
