  1. What a difference around 40 miles makes! 15.1c here under sunny skies, started off very foggy this morning but soon cleared.
  2. Snowfall amounts last night was around 4cm on top of the 8cm we had from Saturday night. 12cm in March is unheard of here! Seems the snow is shrinking from wind evaporation rather than melting as temperatures are still below freezing and there is a lack of puddles that you would normally see from the melting snow. What a weekend its been and a great March so far! Its possible that Easter week could be another blast, but with the ever strengthening Sun at this time of the year, I think this will be more limited. Current conditions: Temperature -1.0c Dew: -4.8c Feels like -5.9c Wind now NE.
  3. Haha I used to live in Portsmouth but moved 20 miles East to Chichester... I'd still call that Southern
  4. South of the M4 is where the heaviest Snow is... How often is that said?
  5. Now snowing steadily here, laying on all surfaces for the first time (except in the heavier bands last night). Temp: -1.0c
  6. Expanding. Was watching this too. Most likely a response to the area moving in from the SE providing some further uplift.
  7. Took a break from the radar this afternoon to focus on sport. While I was outside clearing the car I noticed that the NE wind had once again picked up. Checked the radar and well, round 2 is just on my doorstep! Unexpected.
  8. Had some lightning reporting on the radar and from other sites. Anyone witnessed this? Area's near the South Coast of Devon (Plymouth area too) looks like to pick up some increased snow totals in the next few hours as the bands slowly creep N/NWards. Some impressive bands with this system.
  9. There is a cap at the mid layers, preventing instability over the UK. You can tell as there is no lightning activity in the showers over Northern areas which happens with North Sea convection in cold spells. The cap for us is preventing any heavy precipitation levels in the band
  10. Lack of moisture and forcing (via a front or trough). Storm Emma was the spark that was needed
  11. Cloud heights also starting to increase now. Clearly backed up by the radar intensifying south of the IOW
  12. Snowing moderately here, cars now covered. Pavements still struggling ground temperature is at 0.7c right now, after a high of 7c this morning. Slowly getting there!
  13. The greens on the radar are about to arrive at my location, lets see what they bring intensity wise!
  14. Its developing right now, appears to be extending over the IOW
  15. Decided to take a break from the radars at 7pm, but what a change East of the IOW! Expecting some heavier snow shortly! (wasn't expecting much here at all)
