@exodusPolar vortex migrating to Siberia allowing heights to rise over Greenland and possible retrogression of uk high. It COULD be very interesting indeed and I'm sure Mr Murr is keeping an eye on it.

It's settling now 

I think snow chances this evening for most of us that live at low-levels will depend very much on how quickly the colder and drier arctic air undercuts the rain from the NW - which will relate to how

I've only just realised what a bunch of nutters we all are lol. All this drama for a 'bit' of snow .... I've spent hours if not days n days watching all this unfold .....Now all I'm left with is about

17 severe flood warnings in place, not good at all.

And with regards to the models.....not good at all for 'proper' winter in the semi reliable timeframe. Credit to met office and ukmo model for not properly buying into the easterly

next week.

We managed a grass frost here last night at -0.5 c with ice crystals remaining on the temp sensor all day, and my weather station recorded its lowest wind chill at -6 c at 30 mph

Lets hope that next weekend its all change to something more 'winter'.......

i do agree a bit   if the  wind  was  north   , or northeast  ,or east  yes  but  its blowing  of the  land  that should keep the  water  back, and i lived down this coast all my  life!!

Sorry have to totally disagree with you.

The main surge tide compenent is NW or N winds and I have worked on the water all my life....

As per now the tide is 2.21m over prediction.

The only good point is that its only 1 hour after low water.

This evenings high tide passed and was a very close call here. Sealife centre and other prone spots were just spared by the sea unlike in 2013. Everyone that went down to view stayed a reasonably distance back and was safe aswell, sea defences did there job and kept 75% of it all on the prom but waves hit the seawall and went straight up 35-4 feet in the air at times.

Unfortunately not looking as good for others further South down the coastline.. Good luck to those with property at risk, stay safe.

Edit: photos taken an hour before high tide, i was down the whole time and checked flood prone areas afterwards to make sure everything was good and nobody needed any help. Water rose to about a foot below the top of the seawall, was a close call indeed..

As far as I can tell the peak has gone from the Essex coast.

Its now dropped to 2.09m over prediction, which means its slowing down steadily. 

Lucky strike the main surge was over low water.

Chances are it will still be  big tide but not something that causes to much harm (fingers crossed).

Reports of flooding coming in from Lowestoft area, a hotel and supermarket.

I think it was inevitable, given the conditions, JJ1...Shame on all those who've been writing it all off as hyperbole.:cc_confused:

I'm trying to find out more, if that's right, then part of the town as well must be flooded.

I just hope that all those folks concerned heeded their warnings? And HT at Jaywick Sands isn't until about 12:15 am...Wake-up peeps, heed your warnings?

I am although I feel pretty tired of the winter already- this pic sums things up & this current let down- so much potential wasted yet again- at the best time of Winter -

IMG_1675.PNG

a shift of 150 miles south west has totally removed the deep cold to be replaced with 'chilly' weather- scuppering our best chance of deep cold since 2010, infact what the models showed surface temp wise 2 days ago have probably only arrived in Kent on about 10 occasions ( covering over 3 days ) in the last 30 years-  

perspective wise if each winter is 90 days in 30 years of 2700 days we will be lucky to have observed 40 days of this type of deep cold condition - thats about 1.5% of the time- 

after this let down im ALMOST out of interesT...

All the hi res models currently showing a period of potential (probably only temporary) snow on Sunday for parts of EA and the SE (esp Kent) as a weather front drops down into the entrenched cold air, Will be interesting to see how this pans out as time goes on.

On another note, hope all those on the coast stay safe tonight.

It is immensely frustrating that every time we seem close to a great pattern setting up, something comes along to scupper it. 

Maybe we'll get a shot at a HP retrogression to Greenland a bit further down the line that could open up possibilities? Certainly some promise in the charts, but of course so far this winter promise has led to nothing........
