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.

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.

Sun's out now smile

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

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

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

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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

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

It's looking rather stormy on the Dawlish webcam.

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.

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

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 09:35:43

Wet and windy down here, quite gusty.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

Updated warnings with an extended area over the south.

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.

yes im guessing Wales must be high

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 16:41:35

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

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!
