  1. Big snowflakes now in Matlock. Just after the MetO cancelled all our snow symbols and turned them all to rain
  2. First big flakes of snow appearing here now, with still small amounts of rain mixed in
  3. Just starting to lightly rain in Tansley (a village above Matlock). Temperature dropping and starting to feel very very cold now.
  4. MetO have us down for heavy snow most of the day. The radar shows lots of rain heading this way though! We are on standby for rushing back to school to collect my eldest though!
  5. Yellow MO warning just issued for snow on Monday.
  6. As I’m a bit of a newbie here (joined during last ‘Beast’) can someone explain the Netweather forecast to me? We are not showing as having anymore snow tonight or tomorrow on any other forecasts. Yet the Netweather forecast shows us as 95% sure of snow each hour through tonight and until tomorrow lunch. What do they base their forecasts on?
  7. Getting very thick here now. About to enter another big heavy patch on the radar too.
  8. Getting a fair covering here now in the Derbyshire Dales.
  9. Done We’ve just gone from that downgrade to a massive upgrade now. Ha ha. MO can’t make up their minds! We are having big flurries now. Still not much settling though.
  10. Matlock in Derbyshire. All our nice heavy snow symbols have just changed to light snow, apart from a few still showing in the early hours of tomorrow. An hour ago we were showing heavy snow from 4pm today until tomorrow breakfast time.
  11. Met Office have just downgraded my area for this afternoon and evening.
  12. Smack bang in the amber warning here for tomorrow and Sunday (Derbyshire Dales). Fingers crossed!
  13. Yeah it’s a lie. I’ve been there this evening. That’s been on the map for hours and I don’t know why!
  14. I’m 5 mins from Wirksworth (I’m in another village in Matlock) and have been there to have my hair done earlier. Me and the hairdresser were laughing about the orange/yellow blob stuck over the map. There was nothing coming down at all! I keep noticing it’s still there when checking the radar for here. Must be a glitch?
  15. Thanks for the welcome Yes, we are often quite lucky up here if there is snow to be had. The strangest thing I’ve found about this weather happening is how it’s hit places who don’t normally get as much as us. Notts got a load before we did and yet usual winters we end up with double what Notts do. It’s been a very strange week to watch unfold!
  16. Hi, newbie here Been lurking since the beginning of this Beast from the East I’m in Matlock in the Derbyshire Dales. We had a lot of snow earlier this week. Nothing today so far, but MO has just given out heavy snow for the next 3 hours here.
