  1. 74mph gust reported here in Peterborough. Blown the tree down in my back garden!
  2. One big difference though. The amazing synoptics you see on the 0Z are always more likely in March, April than Dec,Jan, Early Feb. This is why snowfall is more likely in these months than Dec. Also this is what made Dec 2009/2010 so special and very unusual.
  3. Have to be honest nothing in the model output suggests anything exciting except a weak, shortlived N,ly at the moment. I do disagree with your last sentence. A decent snowfall in March away from the areas you mention might be uncommon during the daylight hrs. However what is perfectly possible for low lying areas in the S is a decent snowfall during the night. You do however need to be up early taking your pics before the sun starts thawing the lying snow.
  4. The actual synoptics were chalk and cheese compared to what we just experienced. A cold SE,ly sourced from the continent. Also Leeds recorded -3C that day but much of N England was around 0C.
  5. Can you tell me the exact date and I shall have a look.
  6. What many don't realise about this current cold spell is the -10C uppers that spread from the E came from the NE from the N Sea and not off the continent. As a result the longer set fetch, cloud cover, moisture resulted in higher temps, dewpoints. This was especially true for those living directly on the coast. This cold spell has been exactly what I thought would occur. If you want sub zero max temps in Feb then you really need an E,ly which has the cold pool off the continent. I also find the magical upper temp that im looking for is from -13C and below. The problem is some people post charts on the model thread (precip type) which to some may suggest widespread snow. However if you look into the details the snowfall isn't anywhere near as widespread as the charts suggest. Also some mistake discussing a model run as a forecast!
  7. As convection is now beginning to show near Gt Yarmouth. I imagine snow showers should start developing this afternoon towards Suffolk, Essex and then finally Kent this evening. Amazing how quickly the paths have been drying here which is always a good indicator of dropping dewpoints.
  8. Plenty more action beginning to develop through the Wash.
  9. So Met O warn Kent for snow that will not settle. Heavy snow falling across our region and nothing. Do the Met O do the basic things like looking at the radar lol.
  10. The snow has arrived in Peterborough. May miss out on the heaviest though.
  11. I don't really trust the models in these situations, prefer radar. However apart from the Kent the GFS does not predict much snow. A Wash streaner maybe? Surprisingly the 06Z GFS suggests the risk of snow even on Sunday. Little dubious though.
  12. The models indicated the showers would move further inland today although not as heavy or widespread as the radar suggests. By the way DPs are set to drop during the day.
  13. Those in the SE need to realise a few aspects of this cold spell. Firstly the cold pool is coming from the NE not the continent. As a result you won't experience the cold pool until later on today. Current upper temps. 9pm tonight. Problem is its a very narrow window for the SE. I did say in the model thread how the SE could miss out but the problem is you are ignored when members don't like what you are saying!
