  1. Morning All, a very mild start after another rainy night, just shy of 10mm. Currently 12.2C.
  2. Morning All, a clear but wet start to the day from an earlier shower around 5am, with showers building to the west. Currently Temp: 7.3 °C & Dew Point: 6.1 °C with RH92%
  3. QS, have a read and watch the video on the following link, I think it may help to provide what you are seeking https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/learning/wind/sudden-stratospheric-warming
  4. Yep sure was, about 40mins ago. Looking at the radar the flow in from the SW seems to be loading and reloading all the time with more showers.
  5. Rainbows are the order of the morning it would seem as passing showers glint in the morning sunlight..
  6. Morning all, another rainy night, walked out the door this morning, heavin it down again.. Another 5.5mm to add tot he monthly total. Currently Temp: 6.9 °C & Dew Point: 6.2 °C with a flat line humidity at 95% (which 5% is dry then as everything looks soaked?)..
  7. Four days of cold, that means it might get to a ground frost down here then, after such a long spell!
  8. Morning All, Groundhog Day today as more of the clear liquid falls on an already soaked garden, with a few hours more to come. Currently Temp: 9.7 °C & Dew Point: 7.8 °C.
  9. Morning All after a clear night we begin the week with a cool start, currently Temp: 2.5 °C & Dew Point: 1.8 °C.
  10. Morning all, after the dire day yesterday, the sun has returned, at least for a while before the next session of rain. Currently Temp: 3.4 °C & Dew Point: 2.7 °C.
  11. Morning All as expected a wet start to the day, with almost 5mm fallen so far, and temperature of 4.2C.
  12. Morning all, a tad breezy out there this morning, partly cloudy and pretty much a flat lined night with Temp: 6.0 °C & Dew Point: 0.3 °C.
  13. Am I allowed to pick charts in here?IF so, then the "So near, yet so far..." chart below says it all:
  14. Here's the formula to help with the conversion: At a given point, snow depth (hs) is related to SWE by the local bulk density (ρb : where depth is measured in centimeters, density in grams per centimeters cubed, ρw is the density of water (1 g cm−3), and SWE is measured in centimeters of water. It depends on many factors and does therefore change according to temperature and snow density(i.e. type), suggesting it can vary anything between 15:1 down to 5:1. Simple way to calculate it wwwit http://www.csgnetwork.com/snowraincvt.html
  15. After a sunny start the day progressed rapidly downhill, peaking @ 8.9C, currently Temp: 7.1 °C & Dew Point: 2.4 °C
  16. Really? With a 10% chance of rain AND a suggested total of 0.2mm, with a snowfall symbol, that sounds like a single snowflake for that sort of depth..
  17. Morning All, a partly cloudy start with a brisk SE breeze this morning and dry, with today's starting Temp: 8.2 °C & Dew Point: 4.4 °C
  18. Morning All after an overnight low of 2.2C currently warmed up to 4.5C, clear and dry.
  19. Classic SUN newspaper headline this morning."Snow and FIVE-DAY freeze from Iceland will batter Britain warns Met Office with 60mph storms and fog from today" So let me get this right 60mph winds and FOG at the same time? Then they go on to say And while temperatures should rise again on Thursday, "disruptive snowfall" then threatens to cause road and rail chaos. How does that make a 5 day FREEZE from today, unless there's a new way of counting, I've not heard of!. An of course we then have to face DISRUPTIVE SNOWFALL... OMG HOW ON EARTH did they resolve all of that when they cite "Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “It turns colder on Sunday with air from Iceland, and it certainly looks cold until midweek in the East."?
