It doesn’t look quite as severe as Ciara but will still be a significant storm. Looks like the rain will be more of an issue than the wind in our region but will still be very windy, especially if we get any squall lines.

Famous last words, we are paying close attention to tomorrow when a squall is expected to move through that's what the strong winds are on the GFS again tomorrow.. It brings nearly 90mph to the south coast and 80mph inland as it moves through.. Although I can't see that happening

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

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

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 ?

Well... Its a bit gusty here already in Tunbridge Wells.  And so many of the fields are waterlogged already.  My friend has bought her cows in... Mud nearly up to the top of her Wellington Boots...And before any of our resident comedians comment the cows are in her barn NOT her house! ??????????

I have a lake at the back of my garden its an old gravel pit that was bought and incoperated into the massive garden that belongs to the house a few doors down from me.. It's nearly over top thankfully there is bank in the way to stop it flooding my garden however back in 2015 I think it was, it did flood my garden and now all the people around the lake are worried again.. It must draim a lot of water from the local area or have a small stream that feeds into.. When it's light I'll take photos and I gaurntee by tomorrow afternoon it's over.

Just seen the latest weather forecast, they have definitely have overreacted with the rain for this part of the region, looks like it’s is mostly going to miss the Far East which is good news, light patchy rain with the odd heavy burst passing through during today, Sunday now looks rain better too, again patchy rain with the odd heavy showers. No where near the prolonged rain that was expected. Let’s see how bad the wind will be then?

Looks like "Dennis the Menace" is going to gatecrash, mine and my Wife's 10th Wedding Anniversay, with no repeat of the Snow Grains we experienced outside Sidcup Registry Office, in 2010.

Hope you all have an enjoyable Day, and stay safe!!

Regards,

Tom. :hi:

Forecast for SE region is for heavy rain later Saturday and most of Sunday, with Amber warnings, so which forecast are you looking at. 

I was meaning this part of Norfolk not to have the continuation of rain

Sorry, your location doesn't show on mobile for some reason. Yes no warnings for Norfolk, but still Amber warning here, alas.

Happy Anniversary Tom.  Hope you have a great day despite the weather.

Thanks S.Q.1,

Poor Colette has had to do an early Morning shift, at the Chislehurst Care Home where she works.

But I've told her, under no circumstances is she to stay on and do a double shift, on our Wedding Anniversary.

I don't care if they're short staffed, especially after that insulting £5 Amazon Gift Voucher "Christmas Box", that the Staff were given.(Btw, Colette hasn't received hers yet!!).An en suite Room costs the Resident £1,500 per Week and if the Residents don't have any savings, Bromley Social Services  have to pay BUPA.

So, someone is seeing that money but it certainly isn't the Staff!!:nonono: No doubt the CEO, is doing ok.

I know I'm biased but I happen to think it's a national disgrace, how little importance we attach to caring for the ill and elderley, in this Country.

Right, I'll get off my Soapbox now.

Meanwhile in Weather news, the rain from Dennis is knocking on our door.

Tom.   :hi:

GFS has amped up the storm somewhat on recent runs, though I was looking at the Met Office impact matrix and that was less severe than Ciara. It’ll still be a significant event. These storms do have a habit of throwing a surprise or two in. For our area near the Thames, it’s the rain amounts that are of more concern.
