  1. This coming week isn't that great dispite the large high pressure. Slow moving pattern bringing warm, mostly cloudy and showery conditions. East Wales, W Midlands and the NW will be best. Some parts of the east coast could be cool and full all week. Thundery showers across C S England on most days. Far from perfect weather. Temps 14-25 C.

    Very latest forecast says rain away from 200m + in the Peaks and Pennines and even here it won't last long. Far NE England will do best away from the coasts. Milder air further north.

    Well constant showers, but nothing to warrant an Amber Warning yet. I thought the showers were meant to merge to produce longer spells of snow this evening in our region? Maybe still time....

    Why does the Metoffice have our region under a yellow warning for today and tomorrow? Only very light snow around and nothing really forecast, so I am ot sure why they have issued one recently?

    The revised yellow and amber warnings maybe due to the initial front being further north. It may also be that as this pushes into Lincolnshire, North Nottinghamshire and S Yorkshire it may intensify as it meets the very cold air and strong SE breeze aiding convection. Not sure, but a possibility.

    That first band is already into parts of S Lincolnshire and seems to be pushing north so it could reach S of the Humber by 3pm? What do you think?

    I doubt it. The showers don't look that heavy.
  8. My friend says they have around 20cm. Alderney has over a foot with higher drifts. Ironic that they have the highest totals so far across the UK.

    No, the North Sea is still warmer than the Baltic Sea and parts of N Germany saw massive convection there. I suspect that it is due to the strength of the wind. Lighter yesterday. There will be some heavier showers today, but I don't see them surviving more than around 50 miles in land. Lincolnshire and E Yorkshire could do well today and tonight. Maybe NE Nottinghamshire to.

    In terms of snowfall, this has to be the worst easterly! On Sunday, the warnings mentioned that rural communities to the east are likely to become cut off due to heavy, drifting snowfall. There was even mentions of thunder snow showers. Those have now been watered down. I suspect, come the weekend some places will still have no snow cover.
  11. Yes, the local weather office is now expecting "well over 15cm" to fall by the morning in Guernsey and Alderney.
  12. Strangely, the Channel Islands - Guernsey is reporting 8cm of snow so far...... probably the highest total so far in England. Plus severe drifting with over a ft drifts in rural areas.

    This event did not warrant a warning. Absolutely pathetic.
  14. Week ahead. Cold = yes, significant snow and a memorable event = no!

    Unfortunately, the slow progression of the front will allow temperatures to rose slightly ahead of the main PPN. I suspect areas in the East on low levels will be disappointed to see it be sleety rather than snowy this afternoon. Odd really to see western parts of England snowier than the east. I suspect you will have to be around 200m to see decent accumulations - albeit temporary.
