South East and East Anglia Weather Discussion Sept 2019 onwards

Recommended Posts

Looking at the lightening map it seems to be centered around Lydd area. Hopefully it won't die out before it gets to North Kent.

 

Skies are looking grey and miserable and the temperature is 20 deg and climbing slowly. Not sure where the rain is though 🤔

Rumbles of thunder here in Tunbridge Wells and a half-hearted bit of rain.  Very overcast but I suspect not going anywhere.  Fields and garden lawns looking terrible, brown and dead.  On talking with the Farming community it may well be that there is a hay shortage this year.  A Farmer friend of mine has only got half his quota in.  No more grass left..

My fields look dreadful, I don't take hay from them any more but luckily I bought in some from a very early cut at the end of May at £3/standard bale.

Absolutely hammered down here at about 530/630am, next door left her washing out over night, it’s had another thorough rinse! 😅

Its bloody depressing looking out at it.  Another Farmer I know is already buying in grub for his cows, steers and bulls.  I love Autumn and Winter but am dreading the hay situation.  On talking to the Farmer with the cows and I may have this wrong but he implied that the VERY LAST window of opportunity is September, but we've got to have some good rain first.

Looks like we could be in for something  maybe this morning few cells popping up 

Indeed looking interesting for this morning. Convection kicking off all over the Region atm with an active cell on the South Coast. Arome fairly bullish about the activity developing during the morning.

Oh well I think that rain bypassed us..it was more like heat spots than rain spots.

 

Even the portable air con units are chucking out warm air..

 

Getting totally fed up of it - doesn't help either when  you are a woman of a certain age either ☺

Was woken up by loud thunder at 5.20am, managed to doze off and woke up at 7am to everything soaking making it feel tropical and sending the humidity even higher 😞

temp now 22.7C, it's going to be a really uncomfortable day...

Another extremely hot and muggy night - a few more of those to come I suspect! 

Nice to see a bit of organised if elevated convection around our area this morning, looking good for some downpours today and a bit of lightning hopefully... nice to see

The OH said his weather app showed rain at 11am.

I laughed hysterically.

Struggling to get going here, the wind is forecast to veer straight easterly but at the moment there is a lot of mid level cloud and also low cloud moving in off the wash still as the wind stubbornly remains NNE.

Rain has arrived in Cambridge city centre.  Not sure if I heard a distant rumble of thunder or it was a truck going past the building 😅

26c at 9.30am, wind not even enough to notice, 5mph! Another two days of this, surely a storm has to come through here at some point.

Rain approaching north of Cambridge - I'm looking at the cloud bases out my window and they are extremely elevated and looking likely to fizzle. Thereafter I'm not anticipating an active day of storms in EA today but definitely the potential for some isolated storms this evening/tonight. Looks like opportunities increase Wednesday and Thursday slightly. 

Another warm and sticky one for sure!

I'm holidaying in Aldeburgh and this is the first morning it has actually felt hot on the coast. Currently 23 and very humid, dp just below 20. The wind has dropped for the first time in days.

Last night was HORRIFIC I think the worst night I’ve ever had didn’t drop below 21.6C all night and that was outside, with high humidity in upper 70s to lower 80s this unit can’t come soon enough. 😂

Same here. The lounge went from 30 degrees to 27 degrees overnight with upstairs a few degrees hotter again. Ended up sleeping on the floor in our coolest room with a fan going. As others have said, it does look like air conditioning is becoming more of a summer necessity with the growing frequency of temperatures going above 30 degrees.  Let's hope we get that trigger for the storms that @TomSE12 mentioned.

An oppressive 30 degrees here near Gatwick at 10:30. Hotter than yesterday, more chance of a storm later albeit still a slim one. Here's hoping we can get some decent storms down South over the next few days. Surely we can't continue our unlucky streak.

Let us know if it’s any good, be particularly interested to know if it’s noisy. Because I think I’m going to invest in an air con unit for next year, not sure how well they work.

We invested in a portable AC unit last year. Put it off for a couple of years, but wouldn't be without it now. Before switching on, the room was at 28.6°c, at 2100, but it cooled the room quickly

Worked outside pretty much all day yesterday; today is way more humid with just the lightest of E'lys. Just sorted out the chickens and done some random weeding and phew!
