  1. Yorkshire & E England Regional Weather Discussion

    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?
  3. Yorkshire & E England Regional Weather Discussion

    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?
  5. Yorkshire & E England Regional Weather Discussion

    I doubt it. The showers don't look that heavy.
  6. 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.
  7. Yorkshire & E England Regional Weather Discussion

    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.
  9. Yes, the local weather office is now expecting "well over 15cm" to fall by the morning in Guernsey and Alderney.
  10. 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.
  12. 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.
  14. BBC just said very little, if any snow, away from the hills and mountains of the NW this week. Less cold and wet and windy mid week and then cooler and drier towards the end of week. I suspected it wasn't going to be the cold people were saying just yesterday. Even here in Lerwick 4C isn't cold!
  15. Really underwhelming forecast on the BBC for the next few days. Wintery in the NW with snow on hills....rain, sleet and hail at the coasts and low levels in the north and west. Southern areas average with periods of wind and rain.
