  1. The storms have been cracking from what I've seen in here but I guess I was sort of expecting a lot more activity than what's on the radar.
  2. Blimey. As other have mentioned there's a lot of PWAT in this atmosphere.
  3. Not the same storm, just a line of instability generating one after another over the same location.
  4. Can feel the weak updrafts as clouds bubble up above me here in Quinton, Birmingham.
  5. Band of dynamic rainfall at best for those across NE England.
  6. PerfectStorm

  7. It felt identical to October here today - if it wasn't for the strength of the sun I'd be mistaken for thinking it was so. A lot of Stratocumulus here, quite unusual to see so much coming off the North Sea this far in land and this time of year.
  8. Started off as hail and now has progressed to moderate snow. A thin, wet covering on all surfaces.
  9. Wouldn't look at the euro4, completely useless model. I've been on this forum for close to 10 years and back then it was the 'go to' for short range. However, a lot more short range hi-res models that are much better, have appeared since and have blown the usefulness of the Euro4 away.
  10. Nigh impossible. The adjustment would need to be at least 150-200 miles; at 48hr range, it's never going to be that inaccurate. All the ens look roughly around the same as the op as well.
  11. Unfortunately much of Birmingham too far south and subsequently in the 'warmer' air, many of the showers had to be punchy to produce any notable snow. I took a walk up the hill (230m) and it was still raining there.
  12. Colder air filtering in. Backend snow. Lets see what the next band may bring.
  13. Bit concerning for areas across the midlands if just the Highest points of Wicklow Mountains are red.
  14. About 150m. If you can, get yourself up Darby's hill next Oakham (Near you), that's more than a 100m higher and you stand a much better chance of seeing stuff.
  15. Highest peak in the conurbation is Turner's peak at around 275msl so I'd be very surprised!
  16. I sit at around 170m here just east of Quinton, Birmingham. Quinton itself (20 min walk) sits around 240m and just west of Bearwood (15 min walk) there's a hill that sits at around 260m. If those two peaks don't receive snow then it's hopeless everywhere else across the region away from the Peak District.
  17. Squall line was really disappointing here in Quinton, I've seen far worse in the Summer!
  18. Already gusting over 40mph here in Birmingham. I can hear the satellite aerial on the roof shaking above my room.
