Game over or is there hope?

At one time, I was hopeful... but now I'm less so: days and days of nothing looks like the 'form horse'. In the meantime, it's sweat, sweat, sweat!💦

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.

I think for those of us in the extreme south east, sussex kent border eastwards, are going to get zilch, hardly any sferics, and it all looks to be curving in a north westerly direction

It’s clouded over here in SE Kent and just had 5 minutes of crazy wind but I can’t see any of that storm action moving this way unfortunately

Hi Everyone, my first post here.. Just wondering if it will storm tonight as this afternoon’s activity completely missed me but I was right in the middle of It all, was so strange

Welcome to the forum Follywood. It doesn't look like you will see any storms tonight. The large area of storm activity crossing the Channel from France is expected to get no further than the South Coast and die out. But tomorrow offers a better chance of more widespread storms for our Region, so many of us will be glued to the forecasts and radar from the off. :oldsmile:

Just got back this afternoon from our 5 (which turned into 6) night trip to Leamington, Swansea and Bath with my parents. Had a lovely time, two amazing restaurants in Swansea, a day at The Mumbles and a day in Tenby... missed the storms there on Monday as we left just as they were starting...

Bath was so nice we paid for an extra night in a posh hotel rather than the premier inn!! Did the tourist thing and took the open top bus tours, played mini golf and had a great tapas meal in a restaurant owned by friends of my sister.

Thank goodness for hotel air con is all i can say though!! We were supposed to stay a little longer today but my mum had a funny turn when we were taking the cases back to the car this morning! She has low BP and went very faint... we think it was heat exhaustion/ stroke from yesterday but she maintains it was something from breakfast. It was like she was having a stroke, so got an ambulance but they gave her the all clear and we came straight home! Very worrying, especially for our daughter to see!

Anyway... the weather...

We missed the thunder here in Holmbury St Mary earlier... watched it building over this way as we drove back from Haywards Heath, got back here no rain at the top of the hills, some in HSM lots of rumbles!! Checked the radar when we got in and it all seemed to have bubbled up over us!

Hope it comes tonight🤞

Hope the radar forecast on Home and Dry is wrong... it shows the storm hitting the south coast and then just spreading between 11-midnight and not pushing inland 🤦😢

Can see frequent flashes to the South and SW from here too. No thunder and it’s dead calm again...want that lovely breeze back to flush the heat out of upstairs

23 outside actually feels quite cool, who would think that in uk at 10.30 at night, sure I could hear rumbles of thunder in the distance seen no lightning yet

Can hear reasonably regular distant thunder in the channel

Some nice cloud to sea forks every 2 or three minutes.

So a 3/10 so far certainly better than nothing!

In my head i has it that the stuff in the channel was to move up to the south coast and die out. Now I realise that it was always due to just stall. There’s no flow to bring anything into south east England

Well then...way back when I was wee, there were two things that were a given: East Anglia got not only the best thunderstorms in summer, but also some of the best snowstorms, in winter... Did I move here 50-years' too late!:oldgrin:

Well, only about 30 years to be truthful!

I moved to Norfolk in 1986 - our first winter 86/87 we had huge snowfalls, were snowed in and the windchill was something like -15! And then after that it was all about the storms for probably a good 15-20 years. I used to do dog training classes at my old house on a Wed eve, I lost count of the times my friend phoned me and said "have you got a storm cos it's bloody awful here", or I'd be phoning round saying "training cancelled again, sorry!" Always on a blooming Wednesday....
