  1. Dark clouds forming overhead. Looks like rain maybe coming!
  2. Rain widely across the region at the moment, with a very nasty band of it near South Yorkshire, no lightning strikes reported yet - but it is very early so unlikely.
  3. Most of the region is under warnings for tomorrow - thunderstorms and heavy rain. We have missed out so far on the Lightning guess that is finally going to change.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Amber now for parts of the NW for snow - Saturday night / Sunday morning.
  10. Amber is out - Covers South Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and almost all West Yorkshire. Starts 16:00 Sat till 10:00 Sunday.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
