  1. Wow is that really chafford. Left lakeside at 8 was coming down hard but nothing had settled. Came through laiandon hills and it was like the Alps was scary with a van going sideways in front. Got the other side to noak bridge and nothing is settling. It's mad how localising the difference between settling and not is.
  2. Almost and look at date 25th. GP is going to bang on with the 26th his a bit good.
  3. Nobody will be saying no snow forecast if 384 comes off, everyone will be buried and had enough for winter before the 1st of December 🤣
  4. Next frame would be absolutely carnage as that Chanel low moves east the blizzards commence 2010 all over again
  5. generally think they are far worse on a weekend. I get the impression they are like most big government departments and run on a Skelton staff with only junior members on the weekend. The junior staff are probably told to just read from the computer generated forecast. if they were looking at latest radar and pressure readings across France they would see there is a small low to east of Paris which has nudged slightly north over last couple of hours. This was not modelled as see 12z GFS. we don't have streamer as such but the precipitation on northern edge is being slightly intensified a hits north sea/Estuary. I haven't a clue whether that low will continue to move north/north west/north east or dissipate. Even if the Met office were/are looking at the radar I doubt they would hazard a forecast as its a dynamic situation and they probably haven't a clue, they would probably wait until the 18z models come out then adjust forecast.
  6. looks like there is small low centred over Reims maybe pushing slightly north, was not on any model, so what is does is any ones guess there is a lot of precipitation there moving into Champagne region it couldn't make it could it? https://www.meteociel.fr/observations-meteo/radar.php
  7. 18z Hirlam looks really good from 6am tomorrow for 24 hours, spreads it around the region aswell
  8. I did say earlier people were believing this spell was over too early. Radar shows snow coming back into south London in about 30minutes and GFS looks better for midweek onwards. would be not surprised if tomorrow is colder than expected as the low tonight looks further east so will pull in more of a continental feed, slight thaw start of week before going cold again next weekend.
  9. further east than planned Definitely sending some energy off to the East. next hour watching that radar could be interesting and not just for tonight if that low is sending a shortwave east we will pull the colder Dew points and uppers back in, might get a bit more snow tomorrow, lets see what is does and what 18z says before declaring this spell over.
  10. everyone talking like this over, not so sure myself. we have all week the models fail to even predict snowfall accurately. that lot in channel should be going towards Plymouth as low goes north. looks like low is disrupting a bit to be and sending a shortwave east from radar. keep an eye on the eastern end of precip near Le H arve that big blob may shear into in next hour and places in Sussex/kent coast may get bonus snowfall.
  11. its drifting, look in the Wales tread pictures with no snow on car roofs, bins, etc but drifting against parked cars so you can't see the wheels they got another good 5-6 hours of that lucky sods.
  12. @Bricriu the remains of the streamers early on still giving light showers across London. 1am radar update looking good low and associated precip now around 50 miles north east of HIRlam modelling at this time. looking really could for all in south tomorrow. believe it or not central London currently looking the sweet spot that will have the Met office worried when they wake up!!
  13. @stubbys the colours are the upper level winds speeds in KPH, these winds steer the clouds and of the precipitation. the lines with the arrows show which direction.
  14. yep correct the low is moving up in north east direction the precipitation flows around the low. centre of low is still miles out to west of Spain but moves up towards Biscay for tomorrow pushing the front on its north east edge up towards us.
  15. hi stubbys the French band gives impression of winds going NE but is illusion. the low is moving up in a north easterly direction from bay Biscay, the band of snow on its front is actually being blown in WNW direction as below, but on radar we see the north east edge of low coming up towards us each frame which gives the ilustion of showers going in north easterly direction. ETA for band to hit south coast 3:30am heavy stuff to arrive 7am ish.
