  1. No problem @Climate_Eyes starting to get a little heavier now just south of you.
  2. NW radar extra has Emma inching slightly further East perhaps parallel with the A3 corridor. Very fine light powder in Horndean.
  3. I thought that a few frames ago but it seems to be adjusting further East as we speak in line with what Chris Fawkes is saying. Keep the faith Bro!
  4. In the same boat as you. Hoping that the hirlam is right now after putting all my eggs in the aperge basket! Think I have the same nagging doubt as you though in reality.
  5. We have some bonus light snow here which is not part of the main event but good to have an aperitif before dinner!
  6. I hate to be pedantic @Smartie but it doesn't get frosty but a wet windscreen can turn to ice - I know, I know it sounds daft!
  7. I think it is called snow sublimation where moisture from the snow is extracted straight into the air without turning to water first. I stand to be corrected if I haven't explained this very well!
  8. I read somewhere today that the air is so dry that the moisture is literally sucked away from the lying snow decreasing its mass to almost nothing.
  9. Unless I'm going mad I cant see your signature or the link @Gibby. Ignore that comment @Gibby forgot I turned sugnatures off!
  10. Same here. One minute there's not a cloud in the sky and you think that's it for the day then it clouds over and we have a few flakes. I know that's the nature of showers before anyone says anything but the contrast is quite amazing as the little purplely one has said!
  11. A few flakes here in East Hampshire so far but according to the NW radar extra we are in for a few more. The showers seem to pep up when the sun comes out. I'd be happy to see a little bit of settling snow today.
  12. Not even teasing down here FH! Beautiful blue sky and sunshine. The showers seem to be to the North and South of us here. Wondering if the South Downs are influencing the showers path.
  13. Just paid for the radar extra via the website on your recommendation @Jayfromcardiff and it's well worth the £3.49 for the month. Cheers mate.
  14. Perhaps I didn't word that particularly well Knocker and it wasn't meant to be a negative comment just a reflection of my own confused thinking on the matter!. I'm not having a pop at the models and I agree with you that it is a complex situation to get a handle on bearing in mind that situation is still 96 hours away. My post was really about how it has warmed up (relatively speaking!) overnight with no frost but Nights King has pointed me in the right direction on that point. Have a good day Knocks.
  15. Thanks Nights King. Your point is very pertinent in terms of an Easterly being an irregular event. Everything we're used to about the prevailing weather seems back to front! I have seen some Easterly's in my 54 years but I forget about the drier air as we normally associate them with snow. I'm also assuming the models are struggling with the low on Friday for the very same reason - there is not as much data for this kind of situation. Looking at the fax charts and seeing the cold front moving East to West looks kind of weird. Anyhow, hope all is well beyond the wall and if you could
  16. It's been a clear night in Horndean so I expected to wake up to -5 temp and thick frost. However it's -1 and no frost. It has been a lot colder over recent nights which I assumed would get progressively colder. A little confused to say the least unless we are in a small pocket if relatively warmer air. Ideas anyone? ❄❄❄❄
  17. Whatever software you use that is a striking and informative chart!
  18. Amazing what a bit of elevation will do. When I left Horndean this morning I was wandering what all the fuss was about until I got to Butser on the A3 and it was really coming down!
  19. It was snowing quite heavily and settling at Cheesefoot Head on the A272 coming in to work in Winchester I guess due to the slightly higher elevation. Horrendous in Winchester now. Gloomy and wet.
