  1. Well that was unexpected, a good 40 mins or so of big fluffy flakes and a solid covering here at my father's in Wrawby North Lincolnshire, my dog certainly enjoyed it
  2. Quite surprising in a relatively small area how much snow cover has varied, first day back at work (well making an appearance) i started at my fathers near Woodhall Spa it was fairly white big drifts in the road edges , to Brigg and our office snowy but not as much via Scunthorpe which was patchy in comparison back home to Bessacarr (Donny) Mrs had killed car battery and then down to Retford which was even snowier, Donny and Nth Notts seem to have copped more thats for sure, did enjoy snowballing my 3 Jack Russells mind (in works time of course) in all seriousness work was cancelled, least they give the poor squirrels a break
  3. Ah can remember back in 2010 I lived in Winterton, epic times the A1077 was blocked a few times so me and my mates all walked to town via Normanby brrr
  4. Probably right, though I use it to spot chunks way out and see if they intensify and their track
  5. seems fairly decent, certainly was right over night and into this morning http://meteoradar.co.uk/expected-rainfall#
  6. http://meteoradar.co.uk/expected-rainfall# find this useful obviously no guarantee but those 'blobs' can surely only gain further moisture as they come across
  7. Crikey what a difference 24hrs makes snows coming down here heavy, proper covering here and more to come, looking at predicted radar and there's a further few big areas coming in today from out at sea all the way from Denmark, to top it off text at 10.15 last night saying no need to come into work
  8. http://meteoradar.co.uk/expected-rainfall# There's a bigger chunk early hours might be some use to us
  9. Those showers are already pepping up out at sea, though I'd trade them for the NE lots, strewth!
  10. Nice find, lets hope the trajectory improves and the wind shifts
  11. Hoping the forecasts are right and at the least a top up/ few cm's appear as it suggests, maybe night time will help a slow build up of accumulations from these showers we can live in hope im clinging to the fact the shower size is a bit bigger
  12. Does look like the showers are forming bigger already out at sea
  13. Works office will be getting pasted hopefully (Scunthorpe) and i can lay in tomorrow looking at radar and each hr means temps dropping small acorns and all that
  14. Thats not very nice i know Barnsley has more hills than here, but he'll get cold in all the snow
  15. At least there seems to be a bit more intensity to whats forming, nice chunk of showers at the mouth of the Humber building for someone, winds getting up a bit now too, i always wrongly or rightly use tree branches as the yardstick for melt, if its still on them its not too drastic think i need more food maybe a hotdog i think , bread onions, sauce and.....
  16. Strewth so far an anti climax, whilst normally in Doncaster (where i live) stopping my Dads for a few days, was optimistic he lives near the Lincolnshire wolds, whilst theres been a few hefty 10 minute showers its too sporadic to really build up, though we have a light few cms covering, hoping the outlooks right and the showers pick up as the day and night go's on, two days off yesterday and today, i work outside on sports grounds/golf courses so hoping i can manage to wing it for the rest of the week radar seems erratic, though seems more intense showers forming so fingers crossed, anyway late lunch so time for sausage and egg muffins
  17. A few flurries about today looking at the radar, seen a few flakes already
  18. Really localised falls here (east edge of Doncaster) guessing it was snow and sleet mixture overnight as there is a dusting/ Cm or so but scattering between villages, working just south of here and Gringley on the hill which is maybe only 100m or so higher much whiter, had to pop down be rude not too
  19. Hoping as previously said later on in the day things turn more favorable, saying that I've popped down to Retford from Doncaster for work seen the full works already, rain sleet, hail and a brief period of moderate wet snow so anyone higher up should be optimistic, forecast looks OK as it stands, though more flip flopping than a week in Brid
  20. Bits and bobs of light snow coming down here at Robin Hood Airport, not sticking but there's no intensity yet, maybe later who knows, big area showing up on radar to the NE but looks light too. Maybe a trip to North York moors tomorrow night be worth it.
  21. Well that's a turn up for the books a very slight covering here, snow then graupel then snow both fine and big flakes, surprised it stuck but you guys with altitude should be optimistic, its flat as a witches t#t here
  22. Well the storms got here at Kirton Lindsey where im working winds getting up and heavy sleety rain oooh lovely :-s
