Yorkshire and E England regional thread 30 Jan 2019 onwards

Recommended Posts

Here in Sheffield we seem on course to crack the 100mm mark for this month-and that's in spite of last week's heatwave.

Eye passed one hundred mm mark and that's with only two weak storms. Up the 19th it was a very dry month. 

Storms were in north Sheffield and Rotherham today judging by the radar. If we were under that may have made close to 150mm

looks like hull yet again dodging the heavy thunderstorms forecast.

Yes, same here.  Really did think we would get some of the heavy showers overnight, but no.
Looks like I'd better get round with the watering can then !

Morning all, 

Again I thought we were in for a real soaking overnight but just measured  1.5 cm rainfall. 

See what else comes today and how bad these winds turn out.

Friday looks wet but the weekend I wouldn't be surprised if the east stayed dry all weekend. For us the showers look to a be a nuisance value stopping everything from drying out.

What a soggy evening it is. Very autumnal and noticed the sycamore trees opposite are showing autumn signs with leaves going yellow. Surprised as it hasn't been a cold month near average and already closing on average rainfall.

Can anyone help me? I need decent records of wind speeds on the 8th and 9th of February this year in Ackworth (Pontefract). This was for during Storm Erik. I've found some wind stations on weather underground, but I'm not sure their recorded speeds are right. Can anyone help?!

Gust of 65mph here at 7am on the 9th. the 8th topped at 50mph.
That doesn't help much but anyone with a decent private station and records should be able to dig out similar stats.
However wind speeds can be very localised and a poorly sited anemometer might read far lower than an official site.

Got down to 3c last night here!

That's pretty low for early September?

Last year we got below 1C on 31st August, with fairy dry ground and clear sky it will soon tumble if there's not much wind.
Cool northerly flow was established yesterday with outstanding visibility this morning.
I took this yesterday looking south from Blakey Ridge with the last pokey showers heading towards York and Leeds.
The southern skyline main features on such a day were three large coal power stations but now the horizon is fringed with ranks of giant turbines.
