  1. Wouldn't be surprised to see it intensify again as it moves out over Morecambe Bay. Theres a few cells N/NW of Barrow at the moment. Nothing here other than light rain a few rumbles. The storm to my East just died and pretty quickly too.
  2. I'm just N of Carnforth and its thundering here .... no rain yet although its not far away looking at the sky.
  3. .... And you are further inland than we are here we seem to be in our own little micro climate as far as snow is concerned in this part of the country ..... thats why I hate it when the media in general use terms like widespread and countrywide. I mean its even snowing in Newquay ......
  4. We were on the very northerly edge of the ppn from tuesday night. Left a cm here and there - some of which is still around this morning. There's hardly any snow at all north of Preston, but all the hills to the east of the M6 are snow covered and the lakeland fells all look well covered. We've had more snow over the past 7 days here from showers that we got over the whole of last winter - admittedly not alot by some folks standards but for here up to now its been a snowy winter
  5. No idea why thats there ..... If that euro 4 is to be believed its game over for those of us north of the m58.
  6. That counts as a major snow event for this part of Lancashire
  7. I feared that .... but the fax chart doesn't really tie in with the forecasts - for here at least Its a case of wait and see.
  8. Seems strange as the wind direction for here changes to WSW then SW after midnight.
  9. It is .... but they need to set up in the right pllace for us .... the optimist in me says we'll get the showers .... the realist looking at the wind direction says we need more of a NW not the SW thats forecast into tomorrow.
  10. I fear that after the will it wont it snow of today those of us further north in the region may also miss out on the fun overnight as well. Those ppn charts and the latest met office forecast do not bode well for those further north. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/gcw1fe28j#?date=2019-01-29 https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/gcw1fe28j#?date=2019-01-30
  11. An improvement on rainy sleet .... we have niether here. I like to keep it simple .... its raining
  12. Unless of course if you live between preston and lancaster
  13. Showers already starting to move into Scotland and N Ireland. Mostly snow looking at the radar as well.
  14. Things are looking up folks ..... the rain is getting colder here
  15. Cold wet and thoroughly miserable here. No sign of any snow - its 2.5c.
  16. You aren't the only ones ... we have the same shadow effect here where snow is concerned .... and again it doesn't have the same effect when the rain comes from the same direction
  17. More or less ties in with the latest updates to the met office forecasts .....there's very little snow in the forecast for here now for tomorrow/wed. BUT this has changed twice today already so maybe will change again.
  18. I tend to agree with the posts above ...... you are better off going with what you know for your own location. For a small (ish) part of the UK we often have vastly differing weather conditions within a few miles ...... snow for one is rain for another etc etc. Models/forecasts are great but they can often be wrong.
  19. Thursday was always looking dodgy for how far north the ppn would make it. The models always seem to over estmate the strength of the fronts and under estimate the strength of the cold air block. The SE wind direction also doesnt help imby.
  20. Met office forecast updated ..... now showing snow for my location from tomorrow night through to wed morning ..... ties in with the colder air moving in after the initial front passes through, and the change in wind direction. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/gcw1fe28j#?date=2019-01-30
  21. That euro4 cant be right .... it actually has Preston in the snow
