SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 01/01/2018 onwards


Recommended Posts

And the text reads 

Tonight:

Thickening cloud bringing a spell of heavy rain through the evening. Turning more showery into the early hours with winds becoming very strong. Coastal gales or severe gales developing later. Minimum temperature 3 °C.

I personally think they are waiting on seeing what the storm does on approach, if we cast our minds back 2 weeks ago we got issued a wind warning 3 hours before it was due to take affect

If everyone on here could be friendly and (ideally) find a sense of humour, that would just be hunky dorey.

So just to clarify CK1981 because I have not seen you say this 2,350 times in the last 136 pages of this thread you think there will be something interesting around Mid Month ??? Dont want to go to be

Have nade my first mini snow man. First in 5 years.

It's the update text that makes the odd choice obvious - "This is an update to the warning, shrinking the yellow area and also the validity period.Gusts of 50-60 mph are likely quite widely. There is some uncertainty over the peak gusts, but there is a small chance of winds reaching 70 mph in places - most likely across coastal north Wales and northwest England during the middle part of the night and then across parts of Lincolnshire and East Anglia early on Thursday morning."

Very odd considering AROME, ARPERGE, ICON and the Germans are showing exactly those speeds across most of England, higher along Channel coasts and even higher in EA early morning.

Morning all, Gritters were out late last night in the Croydon Borough as a precaution which was a sensible idea. Latest GFS model shows the SE will bear the brunt of the oncoming storm around 07:00 hrs tomorrow morning. Will there be more twists and turns :nea:

Must be hard to forecast these storms as they develop so quickly. Doesn’t look too severe at the moment, though Norfolk is at risk of storm force gusts. The rest of our region could see gusts up to 50-60 mph. If the low bombs quicker though, it’ll be more severe. The storm continues to deepen as it leaves the UK, giving the Netherlands and parts of Germany a battering tomorrow.

Latest temps around London for 12:00 from the Met site has us up to 7c generally but Heathrow is showing as -5c, yes, minus!!:blink2: :rofl:

 

Edit, now up to 8c at 13:00 down on the South Coast, places like Horsham and Hertsmonceux.

Latest surface analysis has the low already deeper than the GFS 06z is showing... Think the met Office in Exeter are probably watching this develop by the hour, granted they are not for the same time.. Only 1 hour out.. 

Now racy kicks in its up to what the storm and jet want to do..

So according to the BBC forecast the south coast is going to get a bit of rain for a bit, then a bit of wind for a bit. 

Seems pretty standard weather for the winter here !

Oh I don't know, Tom - a couple of cans of Baked Bean & Brussels Sprout Soup ought to stir things up a bit?:bad::D

Thanks for the suggestion Edward.

Maybe the Met Office will upgrade their warnings???

We're expecting a rough night especially in the early hours with the winds forecast here.. We could be let off with gusts peaking 50-55mph or if some other models are correct we could be facing more serious gusts of close to 75-80mph here. I guess we'll have to wait and see, nobody seems to have any clue on what exactly the storm will do as it strengthens!

I went out in the garden and took my cover off the bike this morning. I then put it back on, went through the house and got in the car. No thanks!

it felt raw this morning, although apparently it was 3c!

Beautiful morning, the ground is dry as a bone here, can’t remember the last time I saw the path dry in the morning. It’s nice but not even one snow shower :sorry: I agree that it quite windy here already so I’m not sure what that will bring tonight/tomorrow. What a awful winter AGAIN .

Yes, when I read “more runs needed” in the MOD thread 5 years ago(last time I had lying snow) I didn’t think they meant thousands more.

Pressure looks to be below 990 now at 988, also surprised this chat is not busy as its going to be the windiest night this season. 

I think the uncertainty is a big factor of whether people are interested or not, plus I think we've already had windier then what the max overnight could be. It could be disruptive but nothing out of the ordinary is forecast
