  1. Now that conditions have turned right for snow, can that yellow/green blob of precip over London stall and intensify? Pretty please? ?
  2. Light/moderate proper snow finally in W12 - says a lot about this winter that I’m excited ?
  3. Make that 50/50 - just need the colder air to dig further south and that heavier blob to the NW to come here to increase evaporative cooling! Edit: Mostly snow now, but stopping ?‍♂️
  4. Probably 70/30 rain/snow here in Shepherds Bush now, fear that’s the best we may get!
  5. More snowflakes and less rain now - milder air moving away south judging by the increased reports of wintry stuff further south? Or something else at play?
  6. You have to go into the graphics archive and move to the most recent frame
  7. Glad someone's with me - although there seems to be enough scope for them to build NNW, the overall movement seems NNE - and while I enjoyed a wonderful light-show in the early hours of Wednesday (plus the little bonus cell earlier), I would quite like a prolonged system to move overhead. Fingers crossed I guess!
  8. So, we got a short but sweet cell over central(ish) London about 45 minutes ago (W12) - and now I'm wondering whether the western-most extent of the main body of storms will at least still glance us? All seems a bit too far east, although I may be being rather paranoid ?
  9. It’s been beautiful here in Acton for the best part of the day, I’ve been watching convection reach it’s limit and drop away. But there’s the odd cloud that looks to be reaching higher now, very pretty, maybe there might be a shower over London at some point this evening. Looking SSW towards the Richmond - Twickenham - Feltham region, there’s the odd bit of convection that looks good
  10. Very spring-like shower here in Acton a few minutes ago, suddenly dark, then gusty with heavy rain/hail - and now beautiful clear skies coming in again. I really really want these cold conditions to verify, but if not, I could deal with this kind of spring weather ?
  11. Thanks for your reply Nick. Just light snow here then - can hardly complain, it's been snow all day in margianal west London.... Hopefully our opportunity tonight come to fruition..... SNOW DAY!!! Although I'll be in L'Hôpital tommorow anyway.... bloody epilpsy
  12. Any chance that once this heavy band of precip that's passed through London and Kent leaves, that the precip behind will perk up? Or will we just have light snow?
  13. Absolute pelters on the Acton/Ealing border too, it's been half an hour of very very heavy snow, maybe 2cm in 45 minutes
  14. Snowing in Leicester city centre Although very lightly at the minute
  15. Looking at the radar track it looks to be dissipating just in time to "hit" leicester haha, typical! Bedtime!
  16. Tomorrow's wind further south than predicted maybe? I'm staying up for the squall line, but if it's only rain and isn't wind-or-other-interesting-weather-feature-based, then I may just call it a night
  17. I'm staying up for it to hit Leicester, could be a long night for me!
  18. Sorry to quote you... but it's certainly lost its lack of breadth (whether that translates to any permutation of more/less intensity over more time?), and the radar at 00:30 from swansea north looks nasty. Also, the hinge on my ill-advised semi-open window just broke in a gust, but I think that's just the poor build quality of my flat...
  19. I know, I'm hoping for the former for some excitement, just hope it maintains structure/develops. From a purely meteorological geek perspective of course, hopefully everyone stays safe. It's turned up a notch in the last 30 minutes here
  20. Anyone reckon Torro's hint of a LEWP could be right, or just a bit of excited forecasting? EDIT: I'm going with the latter
