  1. That's a pretty bland statement, what's the reasoning for not wanting to leave, possessions perhaps?

    For me it's agoraphobia, but that's a discussion for another thread, I would do all I could to prepare before hand, such as sandbagging, bring electrical items, food, valuables upstairs and torches or candles in case the power goes out, then wait for the water to subside, as long as its below 2 feet, any higher and I'd be scared of being trapped and having to be rescued from a window or the roof.

    The plastic straw thing is a farce. It’ll take 4 years to do that and then another 4 years to ban plastic lids or something.

    I agree, if they're going to take action they need to sort the lot out at the same time, although I'm not sure what they could replace plastic lids with, plastics are 1000 years to decompose and the equivalent, polystyrene can take much much longer.

  3. Naming storms isn't for everyone, and at the same time the Irish met/ and UKMO can get it wrong, but it gives the general public a little more awareness, it's easily shareable on social media with a name to spread awareness. The trouble we may find is when Storm "Grace" hits and causes no issues, Storm "Harry" May hit, and give major impacts, this makes it inconsistent, and if there's enough named storms that don't have much of an effect, when something damaging comes along people aren't going to take notice.

    Unfortunately an easterly is looking unlikely, they have all failed to materialize  this winter so far, no beast from the east

    Looks like we'll have to put up with the guess from the west until then, hopefully more than just a dusting tonight though, unlike the last 2 tuesdays!

    I actually had a brief snow pellet shower yesterday shortly after 3pm, for all of about 30 seconds lol

    I'm a Meteorology student so I find your post to be quite patronising.

    The point that I was making was that we in East Anglia, particularly the eastern side were due to receive snowfall. There were many posts yesterday and earlier today that referenced the fact that the western regions would have marginal conditions due to the fact that the precipitation started there just before dusk, those same posts also stated that precipitation would be snowfall for longer over the eastern regions.

    What occurred was heavy snowfall over the central regions i.e. Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and light drizzly rain over Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. You have just stated yourself that the event did not come to pass as predicted.

    We have now transitioned to snowfall, I don't know what will come with this but at the moment it is not lying aside from on the grass. If the event on Thursday were affecting me I wouldn't be as downbeat. 

    Like stated from previous days, this event was so marginal it'd affect some areas and not others, try and chill out about it, it's not the end of the world! Regarding Thursday there's still a lot to be sorted within the forecast, I've just seen some people posting that we're looking between 5-10cm, yet some models want to give rain to the SE, and snow to Norfolk, the weather will do as it wants, Just keep the faith! 🙂
