  1. I did think the big East swing this morning look quite suspect based on the radar from yesterday evening and overnight. Probably METO orginal warning was close to the mark, current warning isn't west enough I suspect.
  2. That cell was intense, drove right through the core on the A3.constant lightning and very heavy rain. At its worst visibility was down to about 25m, so very dangerous driving conditions but a cool experience all the same.
  3. Jaynemc I drove through that cell down the A3, at one point visibility was no more than 25m, very dangerous driving condition in the core of that cell. Almost constant lighting, spotted some great cc lightning on the way in.
  4. Probably a little snow this evening but I suspect probably a dusting for most, not too strong looking and pretty small coverage and quick moving. 1-2hrs of light-mod snow it seems at the moment IF it does make it. Far from certain. It will be a nice bonus but I'd not expect much at all. Expectations need to be low IMO
  5. Ended up with about 2 inches here, not a bad effort and even the road eventually got a coating.
  6. Interesting to see how this is evolving. Bands are now lining up south-north and not making a great deal of progress west. Places with snow falling have a good few hours yet, esp in the far west of the region. Back in end of system looks interesting from Brighton-Lobdon and some interesting convective cells in the channel heading NNW.
  7. No expecting too much where I am. Unfortunately looks like the bands have setup in such a way that I will probably only get a little snow. Am in the middle of a slight dead zone, heavier stuff nearby but only a thin wedge before more light tosh again.
  8. You watch that will probably be wrong now. Hirlam has done so well, but watch it bust and not give us a thing! If it comes off probably a quick 2-3cms, it moves through quite quickly unfortunately.
  9. Just the way it goes sometimes. Hirlam once again has been great with picking up new trends before other models. Interestingly the GFS has slowed things down, as has some other models which may allow a longer spell of light to moderate snow over the west of the area.
  10. Will probably need to expand the Amber warning northwards based on what is happening.
  11. What is really evident is that we now have the dry powdery type of snow. Very little here but what we do have is settling instantly.
  12. Precip is strengthening over the west of the region as the forcing starts to increase from the east, small area over Surrey, stronger area between Slough and Reading. Remember 9pm is when things get real interesting!
  13. Yeah radar suggesting moderate snows setting into S.Essex, Paul the UKV 17z update puts you into the bullseye around 9-10pm, snowfall rates around 2 inches an hour at that point in time!
  14. Not completely, but it is making it stronger than it likely is. Going to be a long night folks, things are steadily getting going still.
  15. What is interesting is on UKV it is 100% a streamer,but there is alot of embedded convection as well, it kinda is like 2009 in that respect, having looked at a radar image from 23z that day, its not that dissimilar.Biggest difference is we haven't got as long with the favourable conditions...IF the models are right about the evolution of the low...
