  1. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    The models this morning are interesting to say the least - it might be that we should be more concerned about the very deep depression crossing just to the north of us (at the moment!) as our area is on the immediate southern flank and we end up with severe gales overnight Wednesday into Thursday. It’ll probably adjust N or S over the next few days, but the 06z GFS this morning had us on the wrong end sustained wind speeds well over 50mph with gusts over 80. One to watch. If it adjusts south and we end up on the N flank, the wind risk is probably lower but it might mean a greater snow risk. Lively week potentially coming up.

    Models giving the possibility of a snow event on the 27th that could impact us, although it's looking rather marginal at present - worth keeping an eye on the model thread over the next couple of days.

    Yep, raining here too now.
  4. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    Still going here but very, very light now.
  5. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    Excellent. Pleased for you. I work in Lincoln, so at least my drive to work tomorrow should be picturesque.
  6. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    Well, don't write it off just yet, as LO predicted, it's starting to beef up a little now. Whereabouts do you live, SO?
  7. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    Thanks LO - it's fine though, last week we had a wonderful day of really beefy snow showers right on the coast which was the first decent lying snow we'd had since 2013, so if this one fizzles out over me, I can live with that if more snow-starved bits of our patch do better. Share and share alike, I say!

    It's started snowing now but it's extremely light - the marginality is demonstrated by the fact that it's really coming down in Ludford, about 10 miles west of me but here we have intermittent light stuff.
  9. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    Yeah, looks like we will be right on the northern edge of it - still dry here but it’s snowing down the road at Ludford.

    Fingers crossed the cloud cover dissipates for you. It was cloudy here until about 9pm, so hopefully it happens for you overnight.
  11. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    What’s your temperature Sparky? It’s -2 here so We should be OK for a while once it all arrives.

    Looking like a snow-to-rain event for my neck of the woods, as the wind backs round to the east tomorrow afternoon and the dew points pick up. Lincoln/Sleaford/Bourne west should stay as snow.

    EURO4 output is now out and it still looks good for us - perhaps a slight upgrade for the western most parts of Lincs and Cambs, reflected by the Met adjusting the amber warning area just a bit further east.
  14. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    I think that’s wise. Whilst the bbc forecast this morning was quite bullish about the prospect of snow right to the coast in Lincs, Norfolk and Suffolk, the GFS and ECM control were a bit more marginal. That said, we had snow on the beach just over a week ago in conditions not much more favourable than tomorrow’s are predicted to be, so certainly not game over - not by a long way.
  15. Winter 2017/18 Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Norfolk

    It was a cold, breezy but beautiful day out on the Lincolnshire coast today. As for the rest of the weekend, still all to play for. Recent BBC forecast looked very promising if you want snow.
