My kitchen timer has become obsolete since I got an Alexa, the fact that she can keep two timers running at the same time helps. 

My nieces just ask her things like 'Alexa - make kitten noises' and 'Alexa - sing in autotune'.

'Alexa - burglar deterrent' makes background noises to make it sould like someone is in the house when you're out.

Quote - John Stevens:

"Afternoon @TomSE12....thank you for updating the “Odds”...I noticed that your “runners and riders’ are based on your original list....my now date is the 29th Feb, not March, which you had changed"

:oops:My apologies John.

I had changed it on my original sheet but not on my Master Copy, which I copy and paste from.

This is how your Entry, should have looked:

John Stevens                29th  FEB               14/1                               25/1

It's a good thing that I'm only a "Virtual" Bookmaker, and not an "actual" one.

Think I would soon go bust, laying 200/1 about a 25/1 chance!!:shok:

Regards,

Tom.   :hi:❄️

Yeah they are nuts speeds now.. Would actually be considered one of the strongest storms for a while if those kinds of winds pulled off.. The jet is aglined perfectly as well during the peak of the winds.. This might aid in higher gusts almost anywhere..

Crazy to think winds could be 70mph in London on Sunday, but the met office don't have much confidence in that happening it seems - so maybe they know best?

True that. 

94mph in Central London during the 1987 storm. At 2am thankfully.

Imagine if it had been 2pm!!!

We’ve really had a battering since early October with wind and rain.

Croydon Council have really ramped up their emergency response teams regarding the severe gales on Sunday. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the current Amber Alert is extended further into the SE..............I wonder if the MetO will issue a Red Alert in some parts on Sunday

There's are very strong possibility that the very powerful influx of energy which will pound the weak magnetosphere from the 9th - 12th Feb is going to greatly influence this oncoming storm........It's like pouring petrol on an existing fire!!

I’m slightly worried I live right on the SE coast where there is going to be strong winds and spring tides ?

I think we're going to see an awful lot of trees down with all the wind and rain. Wouldn't be surprised if this ends up as a red event.

Been looking at this for London.

WWW.THEWEATHEROUTLOOK.COM

Ensemble or probability weather forecasts help to asses confidence levels in the 16 day outlook.

 

The snow row is 17 for Feb 11th, which means 17 of 23 runs are indicating snow on that day. I've been checking it this week and its been as high as 20 and as low as 6. Now this is only 5 days away so this seems like fairly good odds but I expect it will come to nothing as no mention in any forecast of any snow down here. Why is the GFS so bad at forecasting snow it quite often shows snowy charts 5 plus days away that come to nothing? I think someone even posted a chart earlier today of us getting a pasting on the 14th.

Okay peeps red alerts don't think so.. Even in the 100mph winter storms further north reds are never issued.. 

There is nothing unusual about this storm its a winter storm in the depths of winter.. Who would have guessed it?! 

What is a little diffrent is the size of the wind field associated with the storm and to some degree the strength of the winds over such a large area.. 60mph winds are not uncommon in winter even inland.. 70mph + is a little more of a rare beast but still can and does happen.. 

We are still over 24 hours away from this event and while we are now entering model lock down (what I like to call the final hours where models tend to agree) some details will change.. 

It looks like 70mph maybe achieved somewhere inland but I think you will need some height to get around that speed... 

Let's see what the overnight runs do and make some proper guesses tomorrow
