  1. Well the snow has now settled on roofs, grass and bin lids. Paths out front and roads are mainly clear.
  2. Canterbury surprised to see wet snow starting to lay on the lawn and top of shed roof Is currently sleety snow
  3. Rain , sleet and snow in Canterbury ATM, don't think it will last long, now proper heavy snow..! First of the season
  4. Well there is some "colder" weather in the outlook for around a week or so maybe starting Saturday , maybe Monday. Re the output and model thread. A very wise member of the forum always advise the following. 1) Don't compare 6z,12,18z etc with each other as they use different data sets( well 6/12 do and 18 and 0 do ) it is much better to look for a pattern from one 12z say to the previous day.

  9. Moderate snow in Canterbury from the blob coming off the channel. Not sure it will lay at it is 1.5C , though the ground is either covered in snow or dry..

Most of the road blockages were caused by people going out, unprepared, blocking the roads , so that gritters c
  11. Well in Canterbury now below freezing -0,2C light snow , obviously not melting now ,shed roof and grass have a good covering. Paths still relatively clear.
