Yorkshire, Lincolnshire And The Pennines Cold Spell Discussion

Recommended Posts

many thanks to those who have already replied but for those who have been out and may not have seen my request re the snow yesterday:-

morning folks

Yet another favour from me PLEASE?

would you mind giving me, again I know, your snow depths from yesterday only IF you can differentiate from any previous fall.

I'd be grateful for any pm's along with your post code as well.

Many thanks if you can do that-and PLEASE try not to exaggerate, as with a detailed report

a) it will be obvious and

your report might well not appear when I EVENTUALLY get round to writing up this snowfall.

very many thanks.

With the permission of the two mods in this area if I may I'll repeat this until it seems I have most reports in?

thanks

John

Radar not looking that exciting just yest for us here in north lincs, I ve a brother in Newcastle and he says hes got over a foot of snow.

havent been on here for a number of days, but cannot get over this snow and the cold so far this winter. unbelievable, yesterday we got sent home from 6th form/school and the snow on the ground covered your feet as you walked in it and the snow on the grass was around 20 cm deep in my garden and the snow has drifted alot too. i walked home after 6th form got shut yesterday and i walked through a footpath whic is seperated by wonderful fields and scenary and on the sides of the footpath the snow was brilliant, it was all blown to the sides and it really did pile up. i havent seen anything like it and the snow is thicker than that of feb 09. i also woke up to find the front of my house breeding more and more icicles. yesterday there was only few and now they have breeded and grown. bless them lol.clap.gif

A partly cloudy day here with occasional snow showers. The roads werent too bad this morning but by the journey home from work this evening they had frozen solid. The temperature has also started to plummet in the last hour or so. Now -3.0C after a max today of 1.9C. The dewpoint is -6.7C signalling the cold air from the east.

Theres still 3.5cm of snow at the moment. It did suffer from slight thawing and compacting overnight as the temperature increased but has been topped up by the few heavy showers today. We're now onto our 13th day of lying snow by the Metoffice definition this winter, which is more than the last five winters (2004/05 - 2008/09) put together!

A Weird thing just happened.

We had a snow shower about an hour ago which topped up our 7 inches with a further quarter of an inch. Just been outside and not a cloud in view but its snowing from nothing !

Can see the stars etc but shiny small crystals are falling moderately. Never ever seen anything like it before biggrin.gif

Theres our low

Actually a fair bit further North than the GFS showed and other models..

http://www.sat24.com/scan

Do you think it may stay on that more northerly course? .... Is there anything from stopping the system from pushing ppn inland as alot of forecasts seem to have the ppn hitting about 20-30 miles inland and just slipping southwards and exiting once more.

That looks to me like its starting to move slightly SW towards the humber. Its the one look North are worried about i believe followed by concern over a similar event on Sunday.Current conditions: -3°CRealfeel®-9°C Partly Cloudy Humidity: 80% Dew Point: -5° C Pressure: 1010 mb Visibility: 16 km LO

I must admit it's a nice developing low, it's detail on the satellites is fantastic. It's actually deepening more than i thought.

It will sink southwards, and if its sinks SW then bingo :fool:

I hope it gets far enough inland to affect me but that seems very unlikely ... but hopefully it will be far enough north to give your area a good amount ... as you seem to have missed out on the bigger totals yesterday. Good luck !

Just seen Paul Hudson on BBC Look North he is hinting at the possibility of disruption in Lincolnshire due to snow and strengthening winds causing drifting, also the snow could push in land as the day wears on.LO

It seemed to me to be south lincolnshire ,although he said there was a lot of uncertainty for the low.
