Potentially quite stormy on Wednesday

Models are struggling to get a handle on things, but wednesday looks at the very least wet and blowy and potentially rather more than that, especially in the NW.

A deep low looks set to skirt us to the west and some models have been developing a tight little secondary low over us as it passes by. No met office warnings out yet, but one to watch.

Yuck ~ autumnal weather and not very festive.

Metoffice warnings for Wednesday and Thursday.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 26-Nov-18 16:16:47

Thanks for posting the link Gloria. It looks like quite nasty for Ireland, northern Ireland and the western side of Scotland in terms of wind, elsewhere, blowy but not awful, then a squeeze in the NE side of scotland.

It all seems a bit delayed, compared to a couple of days ago and the worst may well be on Thursday now.

GloriaSmud Mon 26-Nov-18 19:14:20

It doesn't look that great from tomorrow onwards really, what with the rain coming in from the SW/west to start with. Friday looks better but it's a bit of a wet/wild middle of the week.

Some thoughts from Netweather and TheWeatherOutlook.

AnyFucker Mon 26-Nov-18 19:17:35

Hope it's blown over by on me hols.

Last Feb the feckin' snow nearly kiboshed us.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 26-Nov-18 20:21:31

True, tomorrow looks soggy for most at some point.

TokyoSushi Mon 26-Nov-18 20:44:22

Hurrah! Here you are, it was just something on the local news Facebook page that said they'd named it so not a reliable source! grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 26-Nov-18 21:26:13

There's a low potential for blizzards over the Brecon Beacons tomorrow.

GloriaSmud Tue 27-Nov-18 13:03:51

Rain has just arrived here (Leicester) and it's a chilly 5.4C

GloriaSmud Tue 27-Nov-18 13:05:06

Band of rain showing up well here.

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 27-Nov-18 14:09:42

It's officially revolting here in central southern england now!

BlackAmericanoNoSugar Tue 27-Nov-18 14:14:23

I misread that as ‘politically quite stormy on Wednesday ‘, I was thinking that’s not news. 😂

We had dreadful weather here in Dublin this morning and there’s a yellow warning for tomorrow

helzapoppin2 Tue 27-Nov-18 14:44:59

Wouldn’t you know it? It’s the day for putting out the recycling!

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 27-Nov-18 15:00:38

There's a potential squall line developing currently along the back edge of the rain, crossing the West Country. If it gets very wild can people let me know please. - it looks quite interesting on radar.

twoheaped Tue 27-Nov-18 15:02:38

I'm on the Lancs/Yorkshire border. It is very windy/gusty up here.
Rain but nothing out of the ordinary.

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 27-Nov-18 15:29:30

thanks for the report twoheaped smile

GloriaSmud Tue 27-Nov-18 16:28:09

Officially revolting here too (I'm liking that as a way to describe things!) Afternoon school run was 'interesting' i.e. cold and very wet and it was also almost dark at 3.40pm as we got home.

BentNeckLady Tue 27-Nov-18 16:31:45

Been horrible in the West Midlands today. Foggy this morning and it’s beeb bucketing down all afternoon. Horrible!

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 27-Nov-18 21:44:10

It looks like there will be wide spread gusts of 50-60mph tomorrow in the west, but also along the SE coast for a time. Lots of rain.
Continuing wet and wild on Thursday. I'd expect some low level surface flooding and perhaps some travel disruption (mostly cos the rail network seems totally pants recently)

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 28-Nov-18 07:59:38

No real change to the forecast this morning. It's noticeably mild outside today.

GloriaSmud Wed 28-Nov-18 10:43:55

Yes, certainly mild now ~ temperature's risen to 12C here (Leicester) but it's drizzly and dull.

Updated weather warnings ~ most of England/eastern coasts of Scotland covered by a wind warning from early tomorrow.

Perihelion Wed 28-Nov-18 14:33:03

Suddenly got windy in Edinburgh. And looking at the rainfall rafar, not so much a squall line as a squall lump incoming.
DD must have seen a weather forecast as she appears to have gone to school in boots, rather than the mesh trainers, I've been saying might not keep her feet dry...

GloriaSmud Wed 28-Nov-18 15:50:08

We've just had a bit of a squall go through here. Gusty wind, almost horizontal rain and soaked clothes again.
I didn't think today's school run could be any more unpleasant than yesterdays. I was wrong!

whatsthestory123 Wed 28-Nov-18 16:41:35

been pretty much raining for last 48hrs and tomorrow looks grim if not worse with winds

nannynick Wed 28-Nov-18 20:27:01

River levels are increasing in some areas. Looking at the Ballater camera and chart it is very noticeable how much the river level has gone up in the past 5 hours.

A useful site for seeing river level data across the UK is GaugeMap:

whatsthestory123 Wed 28-Nov-18 20:48:27

yes im guessing Wales must be high

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 28-Nov-18 21:42:18

Tomorrow looks potentially rather disruptive even out of the met office warning areas - the conditions look like they may be conducive to producing a squall line with damaging gusts and potential hail and lightning as it passes through. Be prepared for travel issues.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 29-Nov-18 07:09:01

Updated warnings with an extended area over the south.

Makinglists Thu 29-Nov-18 07:52:15

Win has really got up here on the outskirts of Plymouth in the last hour. think Its going to be an interesting walk to school.

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Thu 29-Nov-18 08:30:48

Very very windy here. All I can hear is wind and stuff crashing about.

Recycling day, so might need to go and find the boxes in a minute.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 29-Nov-18 09:15:55

That Will be down to the squall line developing. Watch it as it comes through people.

Perihelion Thu 29-Nov-18 09:31:37

My new winter wellies arrived yesterday grin, perfect for today.

brizzledrizzle Thu 29-Nov-18 09:35:43

Wet and windy down here, quite gusty.

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Thu 29-Nov-18 09:44:56

I think the new Met Office site might be missing a warning about wheely bins barrelling down the pavement at you.

brizzledrizzle Thu 29-Nov-18 09:59:32

They also need a warning about garden chairs going for a dip in ponds.

GloriaSmud Thu 29-Nov-18 10:08:19

Main lot of rain cleared quite quickly here and it's brightened up nicely but it's very windy.
Squall line showing up well here on netweather's radar.

GloriaSmud Thu 29-Nov-18 10:11:59

It's looking rather stormy on the Dawlish webcam.

GloriaSmud Thu 29-Nov-18 11:03:27

It's gone quite dark here (Leicester) ~ squall line approaching.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 29-Nov-18 11:14:05

Squall line broke up in the south sad that's sad for me, I was looking forward to it.

Meet0nTheIedge Thu 29-Nov-18 11:15:11

It's extremely windy here, seemed to pick up strength between 9 and 10am (Surrey/Hants border). Not much rain though.

GloriaSmud Thu 29-Nov-18 11:19:25

I don't think Leicester's going to get the full-on version ~ it looks like a bit of a 'splodge' in the middle of the line, moving towards us at the moment!

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 29-Nov-18 11:49:29

Often the most interesting weather occurs where a squall line breaks a little and one part moves just slightly ahead of another iyswim. I'll see if I can get back on the radar.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 29-Nov-18 11:51:35

You can see breaks quite nicely in the line...

BlackeyedGruesome Thu 29-Nov-18 12:14:03

Have I just slept through it? Yes I was asleep this morning. Is it with you Gloria? I can work it out from there.

GloriaSmud Thu 29-Nov-18 12:53:21

Blackeyed ~ It was all a bit of a very 'damp squib' in the end. A bit blustery, quick burst of rain and that was it! I think we ended up being at the top of the squall line, where it had disintegrated into a 'splodge.'
Not very exciting at all sad

Meet0nTheIedge Thu 29-Nov-18 14:10:23

Sun's out now smile

BlackeyedGruesome Fri 30-Nov-18 20:38:25

Thanks. Twas a bit windy on the way back from shopping but nothing like some of the other squall lines that have gone through here.
