  1. On the otherhand last April temps were widely 21c 22c in the Northwest, similar up on the Orme. Brillaint spring sunshine. T-shirt and shorts. Headed down to West Shore Beach, picnic, football, beers..to be greated with thick Sea Mist 14c. Quite an amazing contrast,
  2. We got a decent fall last year and there was next to nothing in town but as you say largely mild here compared to Manchester. Ive noticed it is on average just 1c colder up on the Orme than at sea level. I'm still getting to grips with the local conditions.Seems most heavy preciptiion hits Colwyn Bay area or diverts down along the Conwy valley. Having said that locals in the area on twitter were amazed last year when i posted the snow on the Orme.
  3. A lot of snow on the Welsh mountains on way home from work. Clouds looking like they were delivering more. Nice to look at from a distance. Of course nothing lower down. Have been used to this after living in Manchester for years and working to the south of Stockport and being able to see the Peaks. Pasted
  4. I saw myself and it sure as hell looked like snow to me. However, as I say, I can only report hail
  5. Bizarre, I'm at least 130m higher up and last shower was hail.
  6. The Dec 2010 low temps were ridiculous, -10 at 4pm only 3 miles outside a major urban city centre. I built my daughter a sledge out of a bread crate but then had to pull her round for an hour as it just wasn't cutting through the snow. I built up a sweat at -10!
  7. It looks like it's stallling due to the ENE winds rather than a proper pivot which sends the preciptional spiralling round pivot point. Happened a few years back, possibly Feb or March 2014 not sure, pivot point South Manchester, remained largely dry sent snow up to Yorkshire and back where it came from North Wales. I asked on the mod thread the other day about this pivot point senario because in my experience if you are right on the pivot point. you actually get virtually nothing. The reply was at the pivot point you get the most (snow) If it stalls over you yep. But not pivot,
  8. Do you remember the ruler straight westerly streamer of Dec 2009? Or was it 2010. Pretty sure 2009. Straight off the Irish. No more than 10/15 miles North to South. Inches and Inches off that in South Manchester. Really localised. Another great event was the Jan2010 Northerly trough which delivered big time for a lot of the region as a whole. I still reckon winters of 2009 and 2010 will become added to the mythological one's of '47 '63 '79 '81 etc. Feb 1996 another one that gave a decent covering in Chorlton/South Manc although nowhere near as much as previously mentioned event
  9. OK maybe South East looking good to be fair. As that's a phone screen shot when is that for?
  10. Forgive me for massively over simplifying things, but some of these winter "events" are near enough repeater events to an extent. After living in Manchester for nearly 30 years I knew as well many of you that this current event would correct well, well south. If Northern extent modelled Stoke or Liverpool/Hull then there's no chance. As you will know. Gone well south of most models predictions today though. Further to that if you got a cold Westerly or West North West direction even lowland South Manchester can cop it big time. It's rare but I see Chorlton did well on Tues night, go
  11. Has been backbuilding since 9am. Gone very light now, think it's running out of steam. But still, can't grumble
  12. In the balance then for me..but as I said it's still chucking it down now so good luck to others for tomorrow
