So what idiocy will we see today. Shorts and Tshirted hikers rescued from Snowdon. People being washed into the sea in Newquay whilst taking selfies.....with a dozen surfers in the backgroun

One hell of an atmospheric river of moisture upstream across the Atlantic all the way from Bahamas   Looks ominous and indeed models are indicating another wave of heavy rain to move in toni

Does anyone know what these lines in the rain are about?

Gravity waves (Undular Bores) often show up well in radar & satellite imagery. They can trigger showers & thunderstorms, or even interact with supercells.

That doesn't surprise me as it's the highest airport in England.

Have had many happy landings in worse at LBA!

Just copped for a 'mini squall line' and it was fierce!

If this continues to develop as it heads south some folk will have issues with both rainfall and wind

Be safe people!

EDIT: Yup , the NE leg of the squall has turned electric!

Edit: and that 'secondary low' has now been ingested by the main low

Torrential rain in Darlington from the Squall line

I would be surprised if you didn't hear any thunder, the squall has developed well and is dropping some lightning.

If the models projecting high wind speeds end up being wrong again, then surely they can't be trusted in future situations. Serious doubts about their reliability.

So forecasts still 10-20 mph out in a lot of places. GFS not to be trusted it seems!

Driving rain and gusts lashing against the window outside here, more rain to come overnight which is now showing on radar to the south of Ireland.

Looks like the worst is yet to come. Very wet and likely disruption expected to anyone travelling early tomorrow morning.

There's a new splodge of rain coming across SE Ireland now.

Rain totals from1500 this pm to tomorrow at 1500 (so some of this rain has already fallen, but still lots to fall which hasn't yet).

First ever time i've actually seen hail on the radar, and i've been here for quite some time.

We upgraded the precip type detection last Spring, and part of that really improved the detection of hail ?

the BBC keep showing the rain over SW UK overnight almost like a double squall line,., I wonder if that means we could see a few strikes of lightning over night o,o would be pretty awesome.. though not something I typically see in February ,. 

Then tomorrow looks like colder air moving South... possibly thundery squall showers with hail on a lessening wind

Low tide was around 17:00 so still along way from high tide, yet sprat from waves going over the light house at Porthcawl

Wow warm fronts do not normally squall, this storm is interesting at least.

People asked to stay away from the area on Great Western Beach

Bit of slippage..
