It's been freezing up here in Cumbria, just the other day someone posted on Facebook that it was snowing in Carlisle!

I think we have had 10 full days max of hot sunny weather up here, any other time it's just rain rain and more sodding rain.

I can half believe the Iranian presidents accusations of the West stealing their rain, they are channeling it over the lake district in the UK!!

Just a quick update on the barometer, it has dropped but not by much, still at stormy rather than OMG run!
Hope it stays that way and the weather is just normal for the UK, Frost first thing, bit of fog later before sun breaks through the temp rising to the 30's, when it's all down to the pool, followed by rain, then sleet and ending up with snow and Eskimos asking for shelter!

Then it will be lunch time. Haha

So my theory of cloaked Alien craft seeding the clouds with projectiles disguised as meteors to cause this weather should maybe be postponed


On a serious note, A30 here in Cornwall has approx 2" of standing water, very very heavy rain and is foggy to boot


Not good at all

Funny, was just sat thinking jeez the wind is getting loud out there and then the rain started lashing against the windows as I was scanning recent posts and saw this thread. Yep the storm is here in East Yorks.
I hate the wind. (2.24am here)

Not much in the north east yet...one or two torrential showers, sky very dark, and windy on and off....we can kinda see it coming in from the coast. My ears are popping though, which usually means the pressure is dropping!


We can't ever dismiss stuff like this as just a storm, as we can't have any idea how it will pan out. Look what happened the last time the Met Office famously denied we were to be hit by a hurricane....not that this is one of those, but better to be safe.

Uk Storm bringing 60mph

This is a joke right ?

60mph is nothing but a normal moderate winters day here in Cornwall.

If this was a 'once in a 30 year storm', then they are worth watching.

Its an ordinary winters day. Move along.

i am in the north west ( LANCASHIRE ) and we have a fool proof way of forecasting the weather .

open a window and hold out your hand , if it comes back wet , its raining if it comes back dry , it will rain later .

Normally I would agree with you, this isn't very dramatic for a storm. I've even said that before when we had the last one a few months ago and everyone was acting like it was the end of the world.

However, this isn't just about wind. In fact, the weather reports I have seen suggest that the wind is only going to cause minor damage here and there, mostly with falling branches.

The real problem is the geographic size of this storm, and the rainfall. The Earth can only take so much rainfall before the runoff starts to cause flooding, and as you know there are plenty of places in the UK that flood pretty quickly these days.

The longer it is hovering over us (I heard one report suggesting rain for three days) the higher the risk of large-scale flooding.
