  1. Afternoon All. Happy Easter wx forecast - Increasing clouds with little temperature change. ===================================================================== Temperature : 8.4°C (Feels like 7.9°C) Dewpoint : 5.2°C Humidity : 80% Pressure : 1009.8mb and Falling Slowly over 3 hours Now rain here yet, despite the radar suggesting we are now under the rain shadow. I don't think it will be long.
  2. The radar is looking like the streamer that has been feeding Torbay all day is getting nudged Westwards by the approaching band?
  3. Hi @tomjwlx, Is this showing a trough out to the EDIT *WEST* of Land's End and a ridge running from Truro towards Exeter? If so, has the ridge probably been responsible for killing the PPB in that area?
  4. The grass is sloooowly starting to turn white again and the temp is falling from +1.0 to +0.2 in the last hour. For those willing to click on a link, here is the Blizzard Part 2: PL9 Edition, in 16 seconds. https://webcam.io/clips/ZN5oA0
  5. Well I was resisting posting as I didn't want to let the SW team down, and it seems it might not be over just yet! So, as you have asked for updates @Man With Beard, I'd say at the moment, it is sadly another "close, but no cigar" IMBY, Most of the South Hams has been hammered, but the extreme South West of the South Hams has its shields up again. We had an hour of snow from 11:30 that turned everything white apart from the roads. It has all but gone now. The kids in the local park have resorted to using their sledges on the slide! I'm eagerly watching the next batch heading across from Kingsbridge, but it continues to evaporate before it reaches here. After that, it looks like there is another chance coming in from the South, but my suspicion, based on radar progress alone, is that the Eastern edge will break up and anything that is left will be to the West. Sorry if that sounds negative - I've had a great time, really I have! I shall remember the fine powder snow and roaring Easterly for many years to come, but the reality is that the snowfall *volumes* have not been that dramatic in this area.
  6. Only kidding with it being covered in snow Perfectly happy with it keeping a tiny 19AH bike battery topped up. I'm a fair weather biker - shan't be going out on it today
  7. I'm off for a walk along the costal path. Right after I've left a lousy review for the Oxford solar battery charger I bought a few days ago. Absolute junk
  8. Yep - definitely premature. . . . Looks like I got the arrow direction badly wrong. It must have been a slight change in intensity making it look like it was starting to drift North (and the future radar prediction shows that?) But it still seems to be marching in. Here it comes Cornwall!
  9. EDIT - OK, maybe a little premature. Heavy is snow flurry as I type. But I think it will be on and off instead of On for 6 hours! It looks like it's going to miss PL9 again It's ben heading right towards us for the last 6 hours, but has just started to drift North by the looks of things. I think I will have to move.
  10. Wow - and that was on very wet roads. Super fine stuff starting to fall here. I think this is going to be much more dramatic than the Beast Mk1 for this corner of our region.
  11. What's the predictions for the stuff that is still coming out of Cherbourg? Is it likely to continue to dogleg into South Devon & Cornwall or is it more likely to "whip lash" out and flick northwards?
  12. Yep - and temp starting to fall again By the way, looking at your signature, did you not catch that massive thunder storm in May last year? It was awesome.
  13. It's up to 1.5c here now. Starting to cloud over to the East, so hopefully that will cap the rise. I'm going insane looking at that meteociel radar. It's looking more promising than Round 1 and it just has to traverse the South Hams peninsula now. I'm nervous about snow/rain boundary.
  14. Morning all, There's going to be a few surprised Devonian and Cornish Folk if this kicks off! Current conditions! . . . .
