Depending on your personal preferences, this afternoon looks like bring some interesting and/or unpleasant weather as a cold front associated with storm Erik impacts the Region. Strong winds building this morning and peaking around mid-afternoon with gusts widely at 50 - 60 mph. NMM showing an area of even stronger winds moving along the South Coast with gusts up to 70 mph. Both NMM and Arome showing the likelihood of some heavy, squally rain as the front moves through later.

Wonderful. Just in time for the school run! I'll take my umbrella and maybe I'll turn up a la Mary Poppins?!

 

On another note, my bin has fallen over outside. Riveting stuff.

Bit windy, bit Wet and mild Atlantic dross. Default UK winter in full swing.

Missing those minus frosty mornings of last week. 

Usual media hype because some wet and windy weather has been given a name. This time Eric. 

Wouldnt of even made a newsworthy headline on teletex back in the day. Oh the good old days when a 50mph wind gust was just that... a wind gust.

Wind is picking up here now, plus it's bin day, so empty bins falling everywhere, as people are at work.

Wow just looked at radar, looks very active. Lot's of pre frontal showers, then a very active cold front, followed by either a very active trough, or secondary cold front. Not sure I expected all that.

It's v. windy, it's very dull, it's very damp and the wind's at 51mph, in Norwich...so without any irony (okay, maybe a smidge!) I can say...At least it's mild!:yahoo:

The wind is so strong it blew me into NEXT and encouraged me to buy clothes. Next thing you know, it'll be blowing me into a pub. What a shame?!

Well. The radar suggest some heavy rain heading my way. It's already heavy. Does this mean I'd better get my canoe out?! Shame it wasn't like this when we were supposed to get snow!!

Anyone seen the latest Met office update ? Looks pretty decent for our area. From 13th Feb to 22nd Feb it mentions colder than average temps in the South and East with overnight frosts, and a possibility of snow showers from the East. Then in the later period says cold and blocked with snow potential into March!

Now I know these updates haven't exactly covered themselves in glory in recent weeks but interesting nonetheless, does anyone know which models the Met are using to ascertain the possibility of snow showers next week? As I can't see the models we have access to showing this

Have to disagree with this..... lots of trees down in this area, some flooding etc its prob much worse down here towards the coast compared to where you are

Very wet day here, upto 30mm here now which makes it one of the wettest days of the last 6 months and probably the wettest day of the winter thus far. Looking at the models we are about to go from a very wet spell, into a very dry spell in the next 7-10 days! May not have too much more in the way of rainfall this month after Sunday...kind of like December was very front loaded.

Also probably the windiest I've seen in this area since moving here in mid 2017.
