Anyone know a link for a good fre radar please ?

Aye its been pretty shocking this side of the Pennine's so far this winter. The lack of real convective Easterlies over the last few years has been very apparent.

I decided to drive up to the Dales today to get my snowfix, these pics are at Greenhow Hill this afternoon around 400m.

Shout out to MetO for the image

 

That shield of cloud, already developing without the warmth of the Irish Sea, does seem to look destined for here as the low drags it back around itself? I wonder what it is carrying? We see troughs develop so quickly and with a volatile set up like this maybe even lower regions could cop for some winteriness if the precip draws down the cold from aloft? What D'ya reckon? about 4 hrs or so out from us?

 

EDIT: And very well spotted Bryan629!!!

Pateley was a sleet fest, up the hill however...... :D 

I was in Kettlewell earlier in the day and decided to venture onto Cam Gill Road which in parts has an elevation of over 500m. Safe to say if I hadnt of turned around I would of still been up there now!

Showers currently not making it over the Pennines so this could be crucial if I'm going to see anything wintry tonight.

Just to enlighten us a bit this is the latest from meto for this week

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Tuesday, unsettled with showers, some heavy and prolonged, wintry on hills. Wednesday and Thursday, cold with showers turning increasingly to sleet or snow as a strong easterly wind sets in.

People on the model forum are looking too far ahead. This week could be interesting indeed :)

Woke up to noting but rain and a downgrade on the Met Office weather site this morning.

You do the get feeling that if we are to see any proper snow things need to get a move on.

There's a chance of showers on Thursday but here in Yorkshire our best chance is by far the frontal assault on Friday. It will be somewhat marginal but being east of the Pennines we stand a reasonable chance of tipping the balance.

 

The main thing to watch for is the triple point, we need that south of us for the front to occlude otherwise its snow to rain at best.

 

Not sure about the rest of you but here in Leeds we do have a knack for marginal events so i'm optimistic.

 

..

 

This is roughly the triple point..

It would also help a lot if we had SE winds ahead of the front as per the raw UKMO..

Met Office does not have the SE undercut but does occlude the front..

Well our coverage of snow was short lived, as soon as the sun rose and sent the temps a few degrees higher it turned to rain. I'm guessing that it's going to be a mainly snowless winter this year, hopefully Fridays will deliver us a bit of the white stuff..fingers crossed

Some sleet this morning so still no snow this winter. Looked at Fridays as this is looking on dodgy ground as milder air pushes in fairly quickly and with dew points being above freezing as the rain arrives. So very marginal and I expect any snow to be confined to the peak district again. The same thing killed this mornings snow threat. Low dew points moving away in front of the front.

The sucky winter continues.

Yesterday's national forcast for today, showed a band of rain sweeping accross from the west to hit us by mid morning, and then lasting till about 5pm.

 

It never happened, and it has been a lovely afternoon here.

 

That's 2 days that has happened, as again, the national forcast said more or less the same would happen on Friday, but it didn't
