South East and East Anglia Weather Discussion Sept 2019 onwards


Recommended Posts

The first frost of South Ockendon, there is light frost on the roofs and all the parked vehicles are covered in frost. I cannot see any frost on the lawns. When I go out to the back garden, I will look out for spider's webs as they look so beautiful when frost/dew covers them.

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 ?

My inside weather station says that the outdoor temperature is 6°C but the Met Office has the temperature at 2°C with the feels like temperature at 0°C.  The sky is 95% clear and they are a scattering of cirrus clouds and in the low horizon there are stratocumulus clouds.

Thick ice on the windscreen this morning - not sure if we got some drizzle that froze but it was so thick I had to actually get the kettle out

very Upsetting morning, had to walk past an accident by bubs school. The whole thing was horrible and although I had no part in it hearing this poor child crying and a person on the ground shook me up. Thankfully Bubs didn't see it. 

Apart from that it was a nice frosty morning. ?

Commuting every day I've seen some horrendous accidents including fatalities. Though bad in themselves, there's nothing so bad as having children involved, either directly or as a bystander. As you say - thankfully your little one didn't see it.

The thing is, apart from writing a lengthy post, it could of been avoided, but the head is sticking her heels in. Very Dangerous bend by the school with 100's forced to walk down and wait by it and it was only a matter of time.

Probably a bit late to this, but first air frost here in outer London, albeit a very slight one. It was gone pretty soon. Today makes me think of winter. Shame this settled period doesn't appear to be lasting long.

11 years ago today  - 28th of October - at about this time, I headed off  to Asda in High Wycombe in my car and to my astonishment,  it started to snow. Over the next hour or two over an inch fell.

It was magical. I remember coming home and seeing our uncarved pumpkins in the yard dusted with snow.?️?

Got down to 0.8 here in Locksbottom this morning,the coldest of the autumn so far.Frost was pretty much gone by 8.30-8.45.The autumn down here has been a strange one with first 3 weeks of September seeing very little if any rainfall but since then we have just had rain on a very regular basis(barely had 2 consecutive dry days in October).With the rain it has also felt cooler than normal compared to previous years but that just might be me as I haven’t looked up averages.

Woken by heavy rain around 5am - shame it’s not a few degrees colder as the showers are coming in from the north east on a little streamer across Kent at the moment! 
Currently 7c and raining - I see it’s much cooler to the north of London where there’s no rain.

Wow if this is the settled weather I'm not looking forward to the unsettled weather. Been tipping it down most of the morning here

It is has been raining for a few hours now in South Ockendon.  This was not forecasted but then I am in an area that does not have it's own area and have to rely on weather forecasts based on Shoeburyness on the coast or Central London which has it's own micro climate.  This is the reason that I cannot rely on weather forecasts, the wunderground personal weather forecast for South Ockendon is unavailable.  I am doubting the reliability of my indoor automated weather station (and it is connected to a small device outside) as it is connects to the nearest weather station which could be 20 miles away from where I live.

I've just calibrated my new one using extrapolation/triangulation of localish weather stations, can you not do similar? I used to live up the road to you in Brentwood, I miss those Thames streamers! 

Beautiful, clear, sunny and cold morning up this way set against some amazing colours, is it me or are the leaves a little more colourful so far this year?

It is the CliMET CM9088 model which has an outdoor sensor that I use to get readings.  I don't know which local weather station, it is connecting to.  The times for the sunrise and sunset are wrong but the instructions do not explain on how to change the times, yet the (clock) time is correct.  I have contacted ClimeMet for instructions as the pdf instructions are not helpful.
