  2. Knocker, i really enjoy reading your posts, informative and well constructed, please dont give up this thread!
  3. Snowing Heavily for the last hour- Met just gone Amber for Monday (further Snow) this could turn out to be quite an event for parts of the southwest.
  4. Dartmoor update,(Throwleigh), been snowing since early this morning and still going, must be 20-30 cm with bigger drifts, looks like its carrying on thru Friday, hope it finishes before the wine runs out!

      I'd be most interested to hear your views once tomorrow is over, if you have the time, please.  There seem to be conflicting thoughts at present regarding mid-January; some professionals whose Tweets are posted in the relevant thread suggest a compact and powerful PV throughout the month, but there was a hint of possible blocking?

      Agreed - there has been another argument surrounding the value of teleonnectios, with the usual suspects claiming that they're useless and providing "evidence" that amounts to a few non-experts saying that winter was over before Christmas.

      Perhaps I ought to have said "more knowledgeable" or "more experienced"?

  6. Snow on Dartmoor showing on the Netweather Radar, Rain at 800 feet
  7. Snowing and windy here, at last nice to see, don't know how long its going to last tho
  8. Hi Nick, the reason Ian has stopped posting detail is because some idiot copied and posted an item to Facebook.

    Hope this helps.

    January 17th - 14 degrees warm and spring like, then on January 20th it started getting colder, I wonder if January 2017 is starting to bear a resemblance?
