Ooooh you are so close! I'm on Burley road. You on the main bereweeke road in one of those posh houses?

No flakes of snow this end. That or I was too slow and missed it lol.

afraid not..some really nice houses up there! am between bereweeke avenue and weeke school just off stoney lane on the side closer to town.

it was only about 3 flakes and haven't seen any since..:-) According to the netweather radar a sizeable amount of snow should be falling in bournemouth... anyone?

I'm lost ...

went round that loop twice myself, should that read "new thread. Old thread here..."?

Hi,

A few light flakes falling here in Newbury Berkshire but definitely expecting mucho snowo before long. Most Favourable areas so far look like being to me, South Oxfordshire/North West Wiltshire, they can expect a pasting real soon if not already!

Air Temp 0.4c and DP -0.6c so almost identical readings to the event before christmas. If these temps remain in this region that must be a good sign.

Take Care everyone.

Hi all,

The clouds are looming from the west and looking very black (like they do when the sun shines on clouds sometimes). I was getting optimistic but saw that it's raining on the island so I've got my brolly handy as I need to nip to the Co Op! mellow.gif

PompeyFC - know how you feel! Never mind, on a more serious note my other half works for Meals on Wheels service so he's relieved that his drivers can deliver hot meals to his elderly clients safely.

We're in Copnor and just seen someone walk past with their brolly up but it's not raining yet lol.

I think if you look at the radar its the stuff in the channel that will go north east

The first band of snow looks like going across Oxford, Reading and Basingstoke during the rush hour, but appears to be dying out. It's the snow later this evening that looks more interesting.

Like you i am not confident, however i have to say none of the warnings are even valid yet. They start from 6pm. I think if we could see a big blob of rain coming in we would all feel better, but i tis something that is going to develop over us almost, if i understand at all!

To be fair we have not even entered the time period yet for that warning! If you watch the forecast on BBC it looks like the first band will fall as rain/sleet on the extreme coast for the first part of the night, then early tomorrow, when the wind switches direction, it will (or should) fall as snow even here on the coast... For pretty much the whole day too...

These rain showers were have been getting over the last hour or so are just that, showers, not part of the main event anyway... Oh & apparently it has already been falling as snow in Horndean...

Sunnysouthcoast - thanks for that - my parents live in Horndean but mum's not home from work yet. She loves snow just as much as I do so if there's as much of a flake she'll be on the phone lol!

As early as yesterday I saw rain for most coastal areas at first so I'll hold out hope for the timebeing. If it does snow I would prefer it to be during daylight hours as I'd miss it if I was sleeping! It snowed heavily in Stafford over the new year (luckily I was there!) and that wasn't forecast until about an hour beforehand! You just never know...

Pompey FC - I read that on the south west forum - I think it's moving north and east. What will be will be I guess! Still raining in Portsmouth but brightening up a bit.

  • Showers in the north and west again ahead of a hot end to the week

    A weather front will bring showery rain to western and northern regions today, as those further southeast enjoy warm sunny spells. Heat then starts to build for the end of the week with 35c on the cards in the southeast. Read the full update here

    Heat building - But not before a northwestern soaking

    The weather has thrown up two things to focus on during the coming hours and days. First the rain across the north and especially northwest of the UK, with some heavy, persistent downpours today in western Scotland in particular. Second, the build of heat later this week from the south, with temperatures forecast to rise into the mid-thirties, for some at least, by Friday. Read the full update here
