South East and East Anglia Weather Discussion Sept 2019 onwards


Recommended Posts

Gosh, getting really squally here now - my husband picked the wrong moment to take our Cavalier for a walk as a huge gust shook the house and nearly blew them both off their feet. Raining horizontally - definitely not a day to be out (unless you like that sort of thing).

Dunstable got a good snow cover but melted in the afternoon. Hills around the area did ok. I drove to the highest point in the Chiltrens to have my snow fix. Some photos from Wendover Wood this mornin

Nice bit of snow here this morning, so that means it won’t go down as one of the worst winters I can remember but only by the skin of its teeth . Photos below ?

Shower cloud lit up nicely by the low sun earlier this evening north of Heathrow where I work.

Don't normally get woken up by severe weather in the morning but the wind did a pretty good job on it. Some of the gusts I heard actually worried me of something is going to break outside in my garden.

All latest highest gust all seem to appear north and west at present 

Give it time. Just heard on radio that peak in SE will be around 2pm.

I guess this will be when the band of rain hits ?

Possibly. There will be some squall lines where the gusts will really be exacerbated.

And also include it in the actual post, those tablets and mobiles the location doesn't show even if it's set in the profile.

 

Does using my iPad but not using an iPhone.

Made the management decision not to go to swim school today. Not normally put off by the weather, but as 1. we are still getting used to the new car 2. lots of trees on the way 3. poor bubs nearly got blown over last time 4. other road users.  

Sorry chaps 'Bedfordshire' is all you are getting.

Hello everyone!

Today seems like a good day to join a weather forum. It is already very, very windy here, I'd already lost two roof slates and an old fence panel by 07.30hrs, not looking forward to the rest of the day. I'm near Wisbech, North Cambs.

Very exposed to SW winds here.

Been howling louder hour by hour, starting to roar now. The strongest winds of the winter for sure and the peak winds aren't for another 3-4 hours.

The gusts are definitely strengthening here (just to the south of Dorking town centre). The longest side of my building (first-floor maisonette) is SSW facing so getting a bit of a battering. 

Definitely picked up again, there was a lull for about half an hour. Up here in the Surrey Hills between Holmbury and Leith Hills, facing directly into the oncoming...I suspect a battering will happen!!

Yep, sounds like you will be staring down the barrel of this storm a little later. I guess I am more sheltered down here at the foot of Deepdene and the Surrey Hills to the southwest.
 

I should be doing my freelance work but very distracted by the forum!

As someone without a garden - which house is responsible for which fence. Or is it a shared responsibility? 

Left and the back unless stated in your deeds.. 

Concrete post on my fence snapped at the base just a second ago really strong winds now
