    Not here, they're not. I guess I forget how big a county Lincs is. Very wintery evening here, with snow settling and it's very windy with a biting chill. Only a dusting at the moment, but the radar suggests a decent covering overnight. Feels like mid-January.

    What forecast are you getting that from, because the local radio and TV forecasts have both identified a snow risk from overnight tonight.

    And, of course, almost all of Lincolnshire.

    Looks like we might get a second round this weekend.....

    Back at Saltfleetby today and the key feature is the wind strength, we’ve had sustained wind speeds of over 45mph for the last two hours with our highest gust of 57mph. It’s painfully cold out there today, so of course there’s a flood alert for the coast this evening. Working that is going to be tough.

    Pretty wild day with very impressive drifting. Photo below taken alongside the B1200 between Manby and Saltfleetby where visibility was about 10 feet in places.

    Three inches or so on the Lincs Coast today, now dry but extensive drifting in the strong easterly. It’s absolutely perishing in the wind and drifting snow is making travel on the coast road very tricky north of Mablethorpe.

    About three inches fell overnight in Louth, which will make my drive out to Saltfleetby this morning fun and games, but it's certainly the deepest snow we've had since 2013. Looking at the radar, It looks like it's going to be a tricky old day...

    Light dusting overnight here, which makes this a very disappointing spell so far for us, given the Synoptics.

    Light dusting here this morning, and flurries on and off for the last hour.

    It's the former - you can track the ppn on the 18z GFS run and it now looks like it's heading more SE rather than SSE, if it verifies that way, of course. It also looks slightly more extensive, thankfully for us.

    I've got to say, if you're sitting on the North York Moors or in The Wolds right now (Lincolnshire or Yorkshire), I think the next week will be pretty memorable.

    Included in the Amber snow warning for Tuesday. It’ll be cold enough for snow, even right on the coast.

    The Met Office warning system is based on impact and probability and at the moment that puts the Amber warning where it is based on the Euro 4 output, but it’s still a model, it isn’t a guarantee. When Amber Warnings have been issued in the past they’ve changed, moved, grown and shrunk often within hours notice. Hardly good reason to throw a wobbly - I’ll bet it changes, probably more than once before the event.

    Yeah, that feature could be a winner if you live in Yorkshire - though it does do a weird split for some reason - so that's something to watch for. Lapse rates look quite impressive for Tuesday, particularly along the coast - real possibility of Thundersnow for us and helpful in keeping the showers going well inland.
