  1. this is hilarity. so are the models not up to scratch, or is the weather more unpredictable than ever? i personally think it's flips every day atm, tomorrow we'll be back in Narnia
  2. Meto Uk Further Outlook

    yes, but a flurry of snow, isn't better than significant snow :-P
  3. Meto Uk Further Outlook

    Yes, but it's downgraded the words 'significant snowfall' , so it's probably going to be drier than first thought
  4. nah, it's Netweather members with sledge hammers beating the c**p out of the server :-D
  5. The BBC Weather Forums

    I remember you being on there matey, I've still kept the old name. well it must be at least 15 years ago now? I absolutely loved the BBC forum, it had such an air of fun and true excitement for the weather, which seems to have been weeded out of this forum nowadays.

    I'm not hugely hopeful, but we seem to have had more good surprises than bad so far this winter :-D

    That was the brightest 'red sky at morning' I've seen for years, maybe it's a sign for later on today? there are some pretty cold upper moving back in with this front? Not saying there'll be a lot, just that I think we'll still get a bit of back edge snow
  8. The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion 19/01/2018 Onwards

    snow piling in now :-)

    Birmingham seems to be killing off any showers as they pass over it. must be the urban heat island effect? We've had only two flurries today :-(
  12. The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion 19/01/2018 Onwards

    I can see your shower from Bedworth, looks like an April shower
  13. Well, it's that time of the year again, where we can all start turning our backs from summer, and start looking north and east towards the encroaching snows of Siberia. Lets hope that this year doesn't follow the snowless trends of the past 5, and that we get a winter to remember

    Well this 'cold' spell is turning out rubbish. No snow here and not even a white frost , and it was supposed to be minus 4 last night, we only got to minus 1 here?? How can we be so unlucky in this country??? Cold spells certainly are very weird nowadays, aren't they? Now we have another false easterly to chase in FI (and we know we will). I can't be grudge this winter too much, we've had 7 falls of snow, and two good ones at that, but I'd love just one more good fall of snow before the spring comes :-)
  15. The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion 19/01/2018 Onwards

    Precipitation developing over the Midlands now. Remember 2013 when we weren't expecting snow and all of a sudden it developed over the top of us and gave 10"? Fingers crossed! ;-)
  16. The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion 19/01/2018 Onwards

    9'c here now, only 6 hours ago it was 2'c!!
  17. The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion 19/01/2018 Onwards

    same here, we've now had 6 days of snow falling and settling (even though 4 were a dusting) I think ther reast of the winter will be just as good :-)
  18. Well, this will be the sixth time we've had falling and settling snow here this winter so far (albeit, 4 were dustings) so it's been great! It's a very interesting winter here so far, I've got a good feeling about February too. And even if it's rubbish, I'm sure most parts of the Midlands would be happy with the winter as a whole :-)
  19. The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion 19/01/2018 Onwards

    here, it's 0.8'c, dp of -1.1'c , so enough for snow as it is
  20. Winter 2017 2018 General Discussion

    IDK, we've had 5 snowfalls in this part of the Midlands so far , and two were pretty good (one with 2" and one with 6", and a 3 dustings) we've had at least 15 frosts too and a couple of good storms. I'm actually happy with this winter thus far, and if it goes mild southwesterlies from now on, i'll still be happy :-)
  21. so what of the storm itself wenesday, it's showing severe storm winds of almost hurricane force across the Midlands?
  22. The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion - 07/12/2017 Onwards

    The BBC forecast just get worse. Apparently it's going to get much colder next week, with temps of 6-8'c!! Woah! that will make today's 4.5'c seem tropical!
  23. I finally got around to raiding the microfiches of nuneaton library to find the newspaper clippings of that famous day! Sorry abut the photo quality but i have yet to find any photo's from around here on that day, maybe i should phone the newspaper office and ask if they have any archived? Anyway, here you go.............. You'll have to click to read the whole page as i'm not good a resizing. The things i remember about that day are... Waking up at my aunty's house and haering her excitedly shouting "look out of the window kids!" so we did and saw an amazing sight. Almost 2 feet of level snow in the back yard and in the street out the front of the house, was a line of bumps in the snow where all the cars were parked!! As we opened the door to rush out and play, a 5 foot wall of snow crashed onto the kitchen floor, which we then had to shovel quickly back out lol We then made the long walk back home 4 miles from stockingford to attleborough. the first mile was the worst as there was nothing to clear the snow from the road and walking was an art form! so we had to lift up one leg over the snow then the next for what seemed like ages. Eventually we reached the main road and the walking was much easier as the tractors had managed to get through but that was all. After we reached home, we had to yet again shovel all of the snow back out which had fallen in after opening the front door, then we had the best few days of our lives in the candlelight, playing cards and monopoly and occasionally hearing great slabs of snow crashing to the ground from the roof, which had to be cleared again from the front door lol We had no water or electricity for 4 days and the gas pressure was right down too! We had to melt snow to cook with and made a little 'igloo' in the garden to put all of the freezer stuff in, which worked a treat! The nuneaton area was really badly hit by the blizzard and there were still humps of snow and ice almost two weeks after the blizzard where the snow ploughs had dumped it.
