    Slightly jealous.... Just as my snow melts away folk further North are getting a top up this evening (Weds 13th Dec):
  3. Live Snow Updates for 24/11/2017

    It's great to see snow falling so heavily in Thurrock. Local weather forecasts keep on saying that the weather for my area is for heavy rain.
  4. Live Snow Updates for 24/11/2017

    Hammering it down in the Midlands, 7 to 8 cm for now with a fair few hours yet to come the totals should around the 15 20 cm

  7. The Winter 2017/18 snow ramping thread

    Well...... the 18z GFS is either hilariously wrong - or a harbinger of day-after-tomorrow conditions. According to the 18z GFS once Caroline has passed, I'm unlikely to see any days with a max temperature over 1C and there are more days where the temperature doesn't make it above freezing than there are days when it does. While there is no snow - having a max temperature of -3.6 at midday, does seem either insane or time to stock up on soup!
  8. The Winter 2017/18 snow ramping thread

    I am beginning to get very very very excited, here in Telford... ginfers are so frimly scorsed I can hardly type! A whole load of snow, NWerly, and then this walloping in on Sunday... It's all literally still *up in the air* of course, but I'm having a luvverly time following the charts!
  9. Areas looking most prone on forecast accumulations charts from Netweather Extra. This would be lying snow, other areas could see flurries, a dusting, or more - this is just a guide. East and SE Britain not likely

  12. The Winter 2017/18 snow ramping thread

    The 'mist' will be the drifting snow, or more likely that your windows will be blocked up by the drifts.. However, at 1-2C, if we get this 'wet' snow it will cause absolute chaos with power lines and trees brought down. Its much better to have it at -1C, in that way it will be lighter, and will drift more. But not as damaging. In my experience from the past the temperature will fall below freezing as we draw in air from further north. Interesting if it does happen though? MIA
  13. The Winter 2017/18 snow ramping thread

    The Midlands are currently forecast on XC to have a foot of snow at nearly 80mph... oh, and "MIST" at 59mph, too...! (For some reason it insists on displaying it twice, sorry... hope that means we get twice the amount of snow! )
