  1. Good luck. Keep us updated on conditions there if you can.
  2. Just checked the WRF for Buxton. Wow it looks bad there. Freezing at all levels between 4000 feet and surface all day and a massive inversion above that. Still think ice pellets will be the main form of precipitation until later.
  3. Big upgrade now on 06Z WRF. It keeps that sub 0 layer all afternoon at 950/925 mb which is very interesting. Beginning to think snow will quickly transition to ice pellits/freezing rain at all levels though so make the most of any snow you see initially.
  4. Minimum was -0.7°C, 4th air frost of the season.
  5. Hi Looks a little bit milder but not much as we’re in to a polar maritime airmass by then. Looks mostly dry and clear with maybe a few light showers around and a moderate SW breeze. Up the reds. Salah hat-trick again.
  6. Horrible downgrade on 00Z WRF. Wouldn’t even get ice pellets from that. Rain at all levels. Hopefully reverts back on the 06Z.
  7. Assuming precipitation reaches the west coast around 9 AM: Those above about 300 m will see snow; a brief wintery mix transition followed by freezing rain; then rain from late afternoon. Below 300 m, snow quickly changing to ice pellets from the south, continuing until mid afternoon; a brief wintery mix; then rain. The lower you are the longer the ice pellets will last.
  8. The important thing is lower down in the boundary layer, 925–950 MB. Big risk ice pellets.
  9. Met text forecast for Saturday has lost the word Hill which is always good lol. Will post more later.
  10. The WRF 12Z looks good as well, although it would result in a quick transition to ice pellets. If we can hold that inversion at 800 mb back for just a little while then snow would be guaranteed.
  11. Yep, not bothered about accumulations at this stage.
  12. GFS 12Z now shows 3 hours of snow saturday for my location. This transitioning to ice pellets and then rain. DP remains sub-zero untill 15:00.
  13. GFS 12Z now shows 3 hours of snow saturday for my location. This transitioning to ice pellets and then rain. DP remains sub-zero untill 15:00. UPGRADE!
  14. Like they‘ve had a ride on the jet-stream.
  15. Sounds like it still worth upgrading from my Netatmo then from what you say. Will wait a few more months though; see how things are then.
