  1. Clear skies and 5c now, making it warmer than at any point during the rain before. Can already tell it's over here.
  2. Yeah all we needed for that to happen was a literal piece of the polar vortex to dive down from the Arctic straight into the UK.
  3. Looked like it was going to turn to snow but gave up and went back to rain. How can we be doing worse than both the west cost and inland? Surely its got to be one or the other?
  4. Finally starting to cool down now. 3C DP of 1C, sleety rain.
  5. 100% rain still. Back in familiar territory with sleet/snow to my west, south, east and north
  6. Lmao Liverpool pretty much the only place not included on Thursday's warning.
  7. Uppers will be at their highest about now. Most of the region back in -5 or colder at 3pm though.
  8. South of the region is exactly in the center of that huge mass of snow on Thursday according to the 6.30pm BBC forecast.
  9. Hoping to avoid tonight's showers as they will be rain anyway, get a good frost instead for tomorrow.
  10. We really are one of the worst places in the UK for snow. No doubt the worst along our latitude line. My hopes are on Thursday as an Atlantic low with Easterly/Southeasterly winds is one of the very few scenarios where we do well in (West facing coast with Easterly winds means we get maximum cold from the land upstream).
  11. Its a case of the cold behind the front playing catch up, which is why the east of the country will do better as the front slows down. There has been a tiny bit of a slow down for our region too. Yesterday was showing the front clearing my area by 3pm, today my area is in the middle of the front at 3pm. If it can slow down a bit more our snow chances improve.
  12. Yes, front is rain to snow for most lowland areas with not much accumulation. Oops forgot to update, Liverpool at the moment.
  13. 18z very good for our region, snow showers piling in non-stop on Tuesday night. 10cm for some places.
  14. Sorry but 5 days of settled snow on the Pennines is just about acceptable for one month of winter, never mind an entire winter. Expectations that we get a two week cold spell once a winter are very reasonable.
  15. That was special, definitely in my top 3 snow events. 6 inches of snow accumulated in one hour then in the following days the settled snow had the texture of sand because it was so cold.
  16. Looks worryingly flat at 96 but manages to recover at t144. Hopefully that Atlantic low doesn't break through though. Edit: All good, Scandi high is in
  17. Looked like it was going to accumulate at one point but lost intensity. Still all snow even in the light patches, which is very encouraging for Tuesday as to me, that looks more favourable than today.
  18. 100% snow here in Liverpool, lovely surprise. If its snow here, should be snow for everyone else too.
  19. ECM a bit different to last night but its still following its 46 day model broadly. Have to favour the model that agrees with its long range charts.
  20. Think we all needed that ECM run tonight. Good to see it following the week 2 ecm46 charts.
  21. Much better orientation on that low, similar to ECM but happens a bit earlier. Not seeing any real block after that, but its a start at least.
