North West Regional Discussion 3 June 2020 onwards


Recommended Posts

UK Radar appearing like a smorgasbord of unrulyness at the moment, with a messy arrangement of showers and patches of rain scattered about all over the place.  The low pressure is dominating the scene for the next few days.  That said we've only had light rain on and off here today and quite lucky to not get any of the beefier showers mainly brewing out to the west.

Nice and fresh on the tops with snow becoming powdery & forming a glaze layer. -2C at present.

About 2 inches now.. Never expected this. 

Looks like someone was looking for an argument in here (and in other parts of the forum as it goes), those posts have been removed now, so please refresh the screen if you still see them.

Certainly a warmer outlook but by no means settled. Certainly nothing like we saw last month with those cloud free skies day after day. Looks like some interesting cloudscapes coming up. Strong June sun with instability into the mix means there could be some decent convection.

It's been quite sodden here with a conveyor belt of easterly driven showers easily making it over to this side of Pens...although intensity somewhat dampened by the hills to the east.  Wondering if we might scrape a thundery shower later tomorrow?  It'll be hit for some, a miss for others.

According to the met office App there are no storms forecast for today for south Cheshire only a 5% risk of PPN a high of 24c and sunny intervals forecast for today

C.S

I could be wrong but I think the terrain in this part of South Cheshire is too flat to support the build up of big thunderstorms. The biggest thunderstorm I've encountered in my 20 years here was on 19th June 2007, which was a storm which caused great damage in the Severn valley and then moved east, and I've seen a lot worse than that at our caravan close to the North Yorkshire Moors. I hope in a way that I may be 'eating my words (or hat!)' later in the day as I like to see Nature at its spectacular best, particularly when I'm indoors, but I have my doubts. We shall see!

Very heavy rain earlier on this morning. Now just cloudy.

Confusing mixed messages today' forecasts - Met Office have a weather warning for heavy thundery downpours this afternoon, BBC saying mostly dry - who to believe?

Fully agree, and our storm chasers seem to be similarly confused, see separate thread!

BBC forecast on Thursday had thunderstorms in the south of the region this afternoon and more on Sunday. Now nothing but two days of sunny spells on the latest video forecast? But then Met Office put out a yellow warning?

Radar looks dead at the moment, a few bit and bobs bubbling up but very localised.  Cloud cover has increased this afternoon and less sunny spells than earlier.  Yellow warning goes out to 7pm, but some forecasts indicate a possibility of a thundery shower after this time into first part of the night.

Very active T-Storm just passed overhead, no CG strikes seemed like it's all in cloud at high altitude, lot's of rain too

First storm of the year too

It's been a long long time since we had a proper overhead storm here. They've gone left, right and just missed but last time we had a very decent storm.. (consider overhead strikes) was probably 2001 maybe 2003. Since then they've been close but no cigar .. as rare as a good snowfall if you will. It looks unfortunately to be a bit late in the day for storms here now so it looks like that trend will continue. Could do with a downpour still to be honest whether there is thunder or not
