Your calendar may say November... but the weather seems to think otherwise.
Blizzards swirled across the North East and snow blanketed parts of the West Country yesterday.
A light scattering of snow was reported in Gloucestershire, an inch fell in Dorset, and up to six inches fell in Somerset in Bath, Frome, Midsomer Norton and the Mendip Hills, after temperatures plummeted on Saturday night.

Strange weather hitting North & South of the UK, central parts wet and cold , expecting the sunshine in a few days hahhaha.
Time to wrap up and stay warm as best you can over the next few winter months, stock up on essentials as best you can and look out for those around you. Stay safe UK.

I'm in the East Anglian region in the UK.

Two days ago, there wasn't a cloud in the sky and it was like summer.

The sun was very bright and I was trying to get a suntan.

It was overcast yesterday but today was another sunny day with no clouds.  I opened the kitchen window to maximise my sunshine and it wasn't cold at all.  There was no wind but some pesky flies came in :(

Aye the weather has been a little crazy of late in the UK,

Infact I would probably say I havnt seen this type of sustained weather (from start to end of the year) ever?

Been a bit of a roller coaster as anonymous pointed out.

One day its sunny, next it's snowing, the following its flooding.

In saying that IN Scotland we get 4 seasons on one day, just as well were semi used to it, and I have a pair of wellies to hand :)

Met Office issues red alert for Wales with blizzards and 12inches of snow expected as public warned to stay inside and avoid all travel

By EMMA REYNOLDS and ANDY DOLAN

PUBLISHED: 11:12, 17 January 2013 | UPDATED: 14:43, 17 January 2013

Families were warned to stay inside tomorrow as blizzards hit Britain tonight and the Met Office issued a red warning for snow in Wales.

The rare and most serious severe weather warning means everyone should take action to protect themselves and others from the impact of extreme weather.

Widespread disruption to travel and other services is likely, with drivers and transport users advised to avoid dangerous areas and have back-up plans.

Up to 12 inches of snow are forecast to blanket the country, with the North West, Wales and the West Midlands worst affected.

I've been awake for four hours today and its snowed nonstop. The local roads are white again. Britain lacks snow ploughs and an urban myth that if you try to clear a path outside of your house and someone falls over you'll get sued for damages.

Suing culture is destroying community helpfulness.

Snow: Britain facing weekend of chaos with eight inches set to fall

Feb. 8, 2013

Britain faces a weekend of travel chaos from a new band of snow, forecasters warned today.

By Andrew Hough

"Swathes of the country face a risk of heavy snowfalls, with some areas expected to receive between six and eight inches of powder.

Authorities warned of a weekend of travel and transport chaos as the snow sweeps across Britain, with temperatures forecast to plummet to well below freezing.

The Met Office issued a near-nationwide severe weather warning from the early hours of Sunday morning, due to the “widespread heavy snow”.

At least four inches could fall in most areas in the early hours of Sunday, with another four inches set to fall as next week begins. Areas of higher ground could experience up to eight inches.

According to forecasts issued today, there is a risk of snow falling over the Midlands, Wales, the North and swathes of Scotland."

Britain faces a weekend of travel chaos

Ha Ha anyone who has lived in Britain knows you face travel chaos every friggin day of the year... sheesh

I could have set up a bed on the A34 when I was in Oxfordshire

Having said that yes the snow etc is a game changer because they won't pay the farmers to come out with their tractors and snow blades to clear the roads like they used to in the old days...  >:(

Rock salt shares should be a good investment  ;)

End of the world? Bizarre 'bubble cloud' formations baffle onlookers

DARK, menacing and bubbly - these images show the outstanding phenomenon which materialised over the skies in Shropshire.

May 14, 2013

Emily Fox

bubble_clouds2-399565.jpgThe clouds formed into large and imposing bubbles (CATERS)

"The skies above Telford formed into dark clouds which turned into grey and imposing bubbles and resembled the advent of an alien landing.

The imposing clouds left onlookers questioning their existence and how they had formed.

In fact, the clouds, known as the lesser-spotted mammatus - appeared as a lobe and were packed full of ice and rain.

According to local forecasters the clouds created a large thunderstorm which drenched much of Britain over the weekend."

Are we really in May? Britain hit by SNOW as 65mph winds sweep across the country and a month's worth of rain falls in just 24 hours

Up to 2in snow reported in Princetown, Devon, and Rhayader, Powys

And 3in snow fell on high ground in Shropshire near Welsh border

Month's rain in 24 hours to 7am today in Pembrey, Carmarthenshire

Slates come off roofs and trees block roads in Devon and Cornwall

Today and tomorrow will see mixture of sunshine and showers in UK

England and Wales will be mainly dry on Saturday but wet on Sunday

by Mark Duell

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas - so it's rather odd that we find ourselves in mid-May.

Snow fell across parts of Britain last night while another area had a month’s rain in just 24 hours as winds of up to 65mph battered the country’s coastlines in unusual weather for the month.

Up to 3in of snow fell in Princetown in Dartmoor, Devon, Rhayader in Powys, and Newcastle-on-Clun in Shropshire - while Pembrey, Carmarthenshire, had 3in of rain in the 24 hours until 7am today.

Climate change warning: Killer winter storms for next THIRTY years

December 8, 2013

Matthew Young

 

KILLER freezes, floods and heatwaves will devastate Britain during the next 30 years, climate ­experts have warned.

 

"Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common.

There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people.

Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges.

Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people."

YELLOW BE AWARE   :)

 

Storm ' Emily ' is set to blast the UK from Thursday in the run up to Xmas.

 

 

Weather Channel forecasters are naming the storm after Wuthering Heights author Emily Bronte, who died 165 years ago next Thursday - the day the storm is expected to strike.
 

Meanwhile, the Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning for northern and western parts of the UK tonight, including Scotland and Northern Ireland, advising of possible travel disruption in those regions.

 

And looking forward to next week there is the chance that potentially strong winds could spread south and east, battering areas still recovering from the worst tidal floods for six decades.

The unsettled weather is being caused by several low pressure systems sweeping across the north Atlantic, between the British Isles and Iceland.

 

Stay safe those of you in the UK

http://uk.weather.com/story/news/storm-emily-threatening-hit-over-christmas-20131212

 

Storm Emily was due to hit parts of Ireland and Scotland on Wednesday night into Thursday morning, with gale force winds predicted.

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/features/25431981

 

 

Outlook for the days ahead

Thursday will remain blustery and feel much colder everywhere with snow showers across Scotland and over higher ground in northern England, Ireland and Wales. There will be up to 20cm of drifting snow for the Scottish Highlands by the end of the day. The next spell of wet and windy weather will sweep eastwards on Friday afternoon and night with gales around coasts, but the winds not as severe as Emily.

Saturday will remain windy and showery, especially later in the day across southern Britain with strong to gale force south westerly winds.

Storm 2.

The next storm risk is late next Monday with models suggesting more explosive cyclogenesis (the build-up of cyclonic circulation) in the Eastern Atlantic. This storm may emulate Emily and bring severe gales to the north on Monday evening and a very wet and windy afternoon and evening to southern Britain.

Storm 3.

Christmas Eve will again be very wet and with strong winds along the Channel. Christmas Day should be brighter for a time in the south while wintry showers and hill snow blow across Scotland. Another storm then threatens to move across southern Britain on Christmas Day - evening and night. The north of the UK less at risk from this one.

Scotland weather: Gale forecast prompts flood warnings

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has issued multiple flood warnings as the country prepares for high winds and rain.

The warnings, indicating "flooding is expected, immediate action required", cover parts of Argyll and Bute, Ayrshire and Arran, west central Scotland and Tayside.

A related amber warning of severe gales has been issued by the Met Office.

Gusts could reach about 90mph in exposed areas.

Western Scotland and the Western Isles are expected to be most affected.

The alert, which applies from 21:00 on Wednesday to 08:00 on Thursday, said the winds could lead to "very high waves" and would be accompanied by heavy rain.

Forecasters said the public should be prepared for disruption to transport and possibly power supplies.

 

Stay safe my friends.

The battle to get home for Christmas:

 

The festive travel plans of millions could be thrown into chaos today as Britain is set to be lashed by stormy weather.

The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning from dawn – with the threat of gusts of up to 80mph and flooding.

 

‘The worst areas will likely be the South West of England, particularly on higher ground. There will certainly be a legacy of rainfall from previous days, so there will be scope for localised flooding.’ 

The Environment Agency had 73 flood alerts and six flood warnings in place at 8pm last night, with most in the South East and South West. 

Residents in York have already been hit by severe flooding after heavy rain across North Yorkshire caused the River Ouse to burst its banks. 

The worst of the weather is expected to pass in time for Christmas Day as the weather turns colder. Forecasters predict it could be a white Christmas in the Scottish Highlands and northerly parts of England and Wales.

Take care and stay safe !

Its been a while since i last posted on here, suffice to say the coastal areas and low land lying areas are worst hit by the rainfall we have been having , so sorry for those of you who have homes that have flooded, my heart really goes out to you all.  :-*

 

Approaching storm for the coming days.

 

http://www.express.co.uk/news/nature/456975/Storm-Brigid-rages-towards-Britain-bringing-150MPH-KILLER-winds-heavy-rain-and-SNOW

 

'APOCALYPTIC': Storm Brigid rages towards UK bringing 150MPH KILLER winds, rain and SNOW

 

Everything these MM whores just has to get bigger and bolder huh folks.

 

The entire country faces at least three days of torrential downpours, savage 150mph gales and weeks of relentless flood misery.

 

Storm Brigid is expected to first hit UK shores later this afternoon before the full force of the onslaught rips into the country tomorrow.

 

Officials have warned Britain will be crippled by frenzied winds capable of up ripping trees and tearing roof slates from buildings.

Rivers already close to overflowing are likely to burst their banks sparking a torrent of flood warnings and alerts across the nation.

Forecasters have warned a run of storms are lined up in the Atlantic threatening torrential rain and gales for at least a week.

 

My advice ; check your weather forecasts locally and have provisions at the ready.

Stay safe UK

Icanseeatoms.

It seems we may be in for a bit of a bumpy ride on Saturday, I'll have to stock up on tea, there has been so much rain over the last few weeks the water table is virtually at ground level in a lot of places causing trees to just topple over in the slightest breeze.The south west has caught the worst with erosion and flooding as can be seen from the pics in previous posts.Here in the south east it's wet,windy/gusty with localised flooding and suicidal trees, I personally have never seen this sort of prolonged extreme weather at this time of year.Thoughts and very best wishes to all those affected.
