  1. To be honest we had plenty of sticking snow in plymouth in february and March in 2018, so it can still happen and the channel islands were buried in March 2013!
  2. be warned though my rather limited experience would suggest as time goes on that system will drop further west and south west with every run (from 6 days out) like most channel lows
  3. At the moment its one of those autumns!!! Plenty of time!
  4. Had an impressive temp drop today as a band of heavy hail came in. From 6.3 to 3c in 5 minutes. Elsewhere snow in princetown and up round okehampton. A30 down to one lane. Impressive winter days weather for here and its not even winter!
  5. Scanning the predicted wind gusts on met office app for tomorrow constantine bay in Cornwall looks to have the highest gusts of 78mph. Tasty.
  6. That band is Intensifying. If you are already in it then you have another day of it. Seems to be heading slightly west.
  7. @Bring Back1962-63 I've noted that the ppn in north Devon and Wales has started to creep back west. Lots going on with this system!
  8. They look particularly tasty. Taking an age to move up. Fingers crossed. How's the road through Peter tavy doing?
  9. Yes the Dartmoor rangers have blocked both roads up there. Plenty of cars abandoned.
  10. Yes spotlight suggesting they are cornwall bound plus on saturday when the wind swings to a northerly looks like the Pembroke dangler will be in operation. Somewhere in Cornwall will get a load a snow off that.
  11. What part of Plymouth. I nipped down to marjons at 4 to collect my daughter and wet snow was becoming snow. When I got home here in dousland it had gone all white. But yes snow from the West in Plymouth? Heady days.
  12. Starting to fizzle out here. Classic rain to snow event. Snow does lat on wet surfaces. Just need low temps and a high rate of snow falling!
  13. After 3 hours of rain the snow began and has not stopped chucking down huge flakes for 2 hours. Settling well. Only 30 minutes till the front puffs through. Impressive transition and met office app spot on here. Hope for you all further up. Good luck
  14. At 200 metres on the south west slopes of the moor and it's still raining. Just got back from Princetown at 450 metres where it is snowing
