  1. Took a good 3 weeks for this to finally go - Ah East North Easterly I love you so much
  2. Dont think I will be beating the 34cm level snow I got on the 2nd December 2010 somehow - Oh we can dream
  3. Going to be interesting in here from 3pm onwards tomorrow afternoon thats for sure
  4. If you put into Google "BBC Weather" and play the video from a few hours ago that might cheers you up mate
  5. Am not getting the Conveyor coming out of the Calais area towards Kent pushing West North Westwards through Kent, Surrey, London etc Where are the BBC getting that from, it looks like the Precip approaches from the SW heads NE, Pivots and Peters out ? Anyone know from the above graphics what models are showing that ?
  6. Shoreham Airport is mighty Impressive for 20z -3c Temp -5c Dewpoint Wonder how low Benson will go tonight if it keeps clear skies
  7. Cheers Jon And yep I know you will out down some country lane walking to the Local pub with your book ready to read in front of a roaring fire
  8. Yh sorry Darren that's only for East Anglia would be good to see a Map for areas South and West of the Thames agree
  9. Latest from Dan - And bear in mind he is getting far more info than what we see and it is fresh off the bat not like the recorded Met and BBC efforts from hours ago This Map looks on the money to me
  10. Rude Oh believe me that wasnt rude that was polite. Move on look at some charts and have a go at a forecast yourself
  11. Am sure you know the answer to that being a Met Student, Its not hard to work out, Or do you mean the Saturday Risk
  12. Thats just Guy Fawkes's way of getting some Rain and Mild on a map, it must be killing him to talk of snow through gritted teeth poor lad
  13. Not expecting much in SE Essex just a dusting but go about 45 miles (As the Crow Flies) South and West to say Junction 6 of the M25 and it should be a whole lot better. One of those fronts that edges North and East from the SW and loses intensity the further North and East it goes, seen these set ups countless times and never ever have we done well from it in Essex. Saturday might be our saving grace with the NW Moving Precip from La Frrance
  14. Looks great for you guys down in the South West - Good luck and for gods sake dont sit at a computer get out and enjoy it!
  15. When Mother Nature picks on me whilst chasing Tornadoes in the Spring I go outside cry a bit throw a tantrum esp when the Tornado happens on a storm 50 miles South of me What I am getting at is with Ma Nature it's not personal every event is different and it's pot luck where the Lps go and where the Precip falls You are sounding hard done by and you really are not as Dan says parts of Norfolk had just under a foot from an Easterly 11 months ago
  16. Dewpoints will save most of us Ranging from -2c to -4c throughout, -6 Uppers will get it done
  17. Wasnt meant to be patronising but if you are studying Meteorology am guessing at UEA then surely you could see the Low Pressure was losing intensity (Dan calls it Upper Forcing) then you could see that the Northern Extent of the Precip was struggling and with no heavy precip at 36f dewpoints it simply wasnt going to fall as snow, as the precip shield has waxed and waned away moving out towards the east when the favourable conditions (EG Dp's around freezing were there) the precip wasnt strong enough for the Norfolk area. I always like to go through the event after it has happened to try and see why things happened and why things never happened and wrote a paper on the infamous 2009 Snow Event that many Met Students have asked to do studies on (That event was triggered by an Inversion around the Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex Coasts) that stopped the Snow from reaching the ground other than polystyrene balls with cloud tops at 37,000ft and Uppers of -14. The same Convective storms moved from the ENE to WSW and gave over a foot of snow to London. Its all a learning process, was not meant to be patronising in any way
  18. Erm Yes it was 100% Marginal, what forecasts have you been watching for the last few days ?? If you want to see the Video I shared from Dan yesterday it pretty much went as he said it would, a period of rain with dewpoints not condusive to snow, lowering as the undercutting cold air spread from the NW turning the rain to snow. You were just unlucky to be under the part of the precip that shrank in size and intensity meaning the evaporative cooling process did not affect your part of Norfolk. It might be a good idea to learn the mechanics and processes of weather dynamics before making statements like that
  19. Thanks for putting in your location, just to confirm was not talking about the radar earlier sorry for the confusion Sarah. Crossed wires I think Thursday looks a lot better for all the region as much less marginal unless you are within 5-10 miles of the Coast. And it should be more solidly 2-5cm across the board.
  20. Was just finding it interessting that when the Cold Undercut occured there was a narrow strip of Dewpoints that stayed around 1-2c from Mid Kent through SE Essex and up into Suffolk and Norfolk probably brought about by the SE Onshore flow which kept it as rain longer in those areas. The map that was shon earlier shoed it brilliantly - Dont know where your neck of the woods is as you dont have a location on your profile
