    I live about 7 miles from Ruthin - proper snow in the Vale again!

    A couple of CMs here and still coming down steadily. Real powdery stuff - nice.

    Christmas Eve Gale of 1997

    Scariest weather event I have experienced. Felt like a hurricane! At the time, I had a 1.5 metre directional satellite dish on the flat part of our top roof, bolted to a large, old-fashioned 3" thick paving slab, which probably weighed more than I do. Before the internet I used the dish to watch worldwide news & events, so it was a big 'sail'. Over the course of a couple of hours in the evening it 'walked' along the flat roof - thump, thump, thump - it moved about 15 yards before it, thankfully, fell over. We couldn't go into the single story kitchen for fear of it falling through the roof and moved the cars from the front, just in case. Proper scary. I didn't have a weather station then - good job! The damage around here the next day was everywhere. I remember feeling sad driving to my parents the next morning and seeing so many houses without electricity - all those kids with new playstations etc. that were useless!

    That is as per the forecast - bit of a quiet spell for a few hours.

    NE Wales looks to be in the sweet spot starting overnight tonight, and through the weekend, so hoping for some luck. Even got text from Daughter's school warning of risk they won't be open. Happy Days!

    New Radar apps RAIN SNOW

    Paul - getting the ios version out ahead of this cold snap would be very smart for NW - even if a few bugs still exist.
  11. Thanks Feb - I'll re-evaluate my reliance on yr.no when I haven't got the time to trawl MC.
  12. That's what I read from the charts but yr.no shows nothing. Odd.
  13. YR.NO for my location (NE Wales) has just updated following the 12z, and it shows not a snowflake for the next 10 days. I thought YR was usually just a straigh take from ECM, but am I mistaken, given the 12z output I have just looked through?
  14. I just have my console mounted by my PC which I keep on 24/7 - that works just fine. Wunderground rapid fire updates at the same frequency as my station (3 secs) without the need for web hosting - all depends on who you are presenting the data for. Mapantz has a nice professional-looking web portal, but mine is for my use (and other Wunderground viewers) so it's horses for courses.
  15. Oh, and without buying an IP logger (or something like that) you have to have your PC on for data to get online.
