  1. Looking at maps of 'public' weather stations it might. While the data from them is often la la, they do show that the SE has warmed up even more with now most of the ones around London showing around 30c on the Mets own public station list - http://wow.metoffice.gov.uk/ Indicates its probably going to get in the 29's somewhere.
  2. If that was in January people would be over joyed, can't imagine there will be many people being glad that the Met is predicted cold and snow for April though! Can snow in May here though, so we are not over with Winter till then.
  3. Yeah, god knows how you could measure this. On our flat areas on our fields we have 0 snow, and its really similar to the pictures of the Siberian Tundra, but anywhere that has a divet or a slope is covered in snow. Drifts over 2 foot in places but they are also random.
  4. CMC has been beating it a lot in the verification stats lately, so its arguable its the 4th best model. Really is a joke how poorly funded it has become and with no sign that will change.
  5. Hills around Whitby are getting a pasting again. Really does seem to be the spot to be if you want to live on the East Coast, yet still have snow. Pity its transport links are almost none existent so living there has to be a pain.
  6. Amber now for parts of the NW for snow - Saturday night / Sunday morning.
  7. Amber is out - Covers South Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and almost all West Yorkshire. Starts 16:00 Sat till 10:00 Sunday.
  8. Lancashire and a lot of the NW is now under 2 weather warnings for tomorrow - Snow one now goes to the west coast - except the bit by Blackpool. New Wind one - So Blizzards tomorrow morning.
  9. Met office is updating the warnings. Looks like an Amber is coming for parts of our region for tomorrow, going on the updated yellows. Also Wind warning now over Lancashire and very western most parts of the region.
  10. Get the train / plane on Friday. BA cancels all the local flights first and given the weather they will be the first to go, really wouldn't risk it if you can't afford the delay.
  11. Its not just South Yorkshire. This event is so far lining up to be very good for the region - BUT it doesn't really start till 30 hours away, so wont really have a clear idea till tomorrow morning as to where exactly the precip is going. Note Met Office moved Friday, Saturday and Sunday's warnings to cover the whole region and into Lancashire now, which given the models keep showing this part of the Pennines getting a pasting its not surprising. Was only yesterday the last bit of very stubborn snow melted as well
  12. Really is coming down again. Still got 2 foot high snow drifts here from the last lot as it seems the temps so far haven't been high enough to make a massive dent its only the sunlight that shifts it.
  13. Looks like we may have a lul for a day or 2 then all starts again. Long range models really not showing a realistic breakdown aka Jet stream moving from being at the Equator, only real hope is the Azores high to some how magic its way up to near us that would at least provide a respite of sorts.
  14. As its really really bad on the high bits. Just heard reliable 2nd hand information (person who works with the Gritters) that West Yorkshire and possibly North Yorkshire will be out of Grit by tonight. So its going to get a whole lot worse - so if you need anything and you have access to a gritted road get it now as the roads could become impassible.
  15. March 2013 was odd, in that over Skipton way it was bad, but just on the border and around Colne & Clitheroe it was a LOT worse. I know a few farmers near here lost their whole flocks as they got buried. 1 small village and a few hamlets that are less than 2 miles away as the crow files were completely cut off for over a week - the main A6068 (the road the M65 turns into) was shut for 2 days. All that wasn't so much the depth though it was the speed it came down just completely stopped everything.
