  1. Keep the faith for Sunday guys, in my experience over the years these low pressure systems are unpredictable even up to 6 -12 hours out and more often than not tend to track further south than modelled. Now, i'm not saying we are going to be knee deep in snow, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this tracking further south than progged and some us snow starved southerners seeing the white stuff. Anyone else follow my thoughts?
  2. Well good morning fellow southerners and south westerners. It looks like I've managed to drag my sorry rear end out of summer hibernation just in time to see the latest possibilities of snow for us snow starved southerners stand on a knife edge. Track south Mr Low Pressure god damn it lol. Hope everyone is well.
  3. Famous last words lol.............. A week in weather forecasting is a life time. 48hrs is about as far as I trust and even then snowcasting can come down to looking out the window. That said, that setup would be much more favourable for our neck of the woods so fingers crossed. Hop on the roller coaster but beware its gonna be a bumpy ride. Snizzle lol, I had a very light dusting of snizzle on the car this morning, tiny little ice crystals.
  4. Agreed, we are always too far South and either too far west or too far east or its all rain. One day our time will come again! To be honest be always tend to fair better when the cold air has established itself and the mild air from the Atlantic tries to push back in and if you are very lucky the fabled Channel Low. Seems quite a few fellow South/South Western folk are also suffering from no snow hangovers!!! Back to the drawing board (Charts) to see when our next let down will be lol Oh the joy of British Winter. Congrats to those that go some of the white stuff!
  5. Yes Dorsetbred, very sleety mix at the moment and I am literally spitting distance from the sea!!
  6. Ha Ha Jethro, your snow obsession is impressive!!!! I'm always the optimist but even my half full glass is now empty having drunk it all in despair. Hick
  7. That is a great post Martin, as a new poster I didn't want to start telling people not to place too much faith in these weather apps for fear of being told to do one before making friends!! Am I right in thinking these apps only use raw data?
  8. Temperature and dew points fairly steady here in Bournemouth. I feel the rain band will have passed before the cold air digs in. I think that other than the usual suspects ie. Dartmoor, Salisbury etc there are going to be a lot of disappointed people. Is it me or has the media gone crazy, they seem to be reporting snowmageddon coming
  9. Jay!!! Had me searching for Cardiff Webcams then lol
  10. Someone has taken the temperature sensor indoors lol
  11. It does seem the forecasters are really struggling to get a handle on this event especially for us folk down south. I guess its because its so marginal it literally could go either way and far too many factors involved in forecasting snow i.e you can have 6 inches of snow in one area and 5 miles down the road it can be pouring with rain. Who would be a meteorologist in balmy Britain, tough gig!!
  12. Agreed, I think you will be fine, I think this region is unlikely to see large amounts of settling snow, I'm trying to be optimistic but my heart says this is more likely to be a rain/sleet fest
  13. Thank you my fellow south dorset friend, I think its gonna be a bumpy ride today.
  14. Thank you for the warm welcome. Probably a bit of both to be honest!! Having a had a quick look at the latest charts, I think unless you have a bit of altitude most places are going to get rain/sleet and I also think this band is going to go through a lot quicker than expected with out giving the cold a chance to dig in. I hope im wrong and ever the optimist, now back to the radar lol
  15. Good Morning Guys Long time lurker here, been a member for probably 5 years on and off and thought it was about time I popped my head round the door to say hello to my fellow South/South West residents . An interesting day weather wise, hope at least some of us see the white stuff . I will keep you posted from here in sunny sunny Bournemouth!! Actually just started to rain lol
