    As for staying up to watch for snow ... I don't sleep well as I have my mother living with us and has needs that I attend during night time so if I chose to stay up a little longer to see a glimpse of snow and I get to see a flake or 2 I'm happy so I don't see it as wasting my time !

    I thought it was part of this forums expected winter time activities lol. Shows real dedication, just hope you/we have something to see. I have a mum in law that needs almost constant attention so know how that goes although she is still in her house round the corner with people popping in all the time!!

    Sorry Scrat, I don't, but in potted form it went like this: showers tonight, perhaps wintry, back to sleet then rain tomorrow in the south, rain around on Tues and Weds turning colder Thursday onwards but cloudy and mostly dry, chance of wintry flurries, about 5/6c, at the end the forecaster Nina Ridge said they were very confident the Atlantic was coming back after the end of the week but not quite sure when.

    I still love your Ruskin quote by the way!

    AS

    Thanks so much AS :-).  Shame about the Atlantic really; would just love a brief 'snowy' spell.  Ruskin sums it up rather well I think...

    Here is a weekly forecast from earlier today. Countryfile's was similar. Posted Image

    chilly in Reigate, +2.3c, dewpoint +1.5c (both just risen by 0.1c) Not expecting anything more than at most a sprinkle of snow, and frankly I'd be surprised if we get anything this week that allows me to post a score on the snow depth cup charts.

    Hope the various councils have kept their powder (ie grit/salt) dry for now!

    Hi PS

    I remember saying to my old Dad that I loved being in Brighton or by the sea in winter when it was bleak and stormy, grey, sea merging with grey skies. he looked at me knowingly and said 'there speaks someone who hasn't lived in a seaside town all year round'. It's the same when we go to West Wales, I like to imagine that if I lived there all year I would love the wildness, which I would, but I think after a while at certain times the assault of the rain would get me down. However, it's not been that great down here this winter so hang on in there and you'll hopefully soon be able to describe big easterly skies and brooding snow showers as we gird our loins for another westerly assault

    AS

    Great post as always AS and you make a valid point but.........If i could, I would swop the dross of this outer London suburb for a bleak and stormy seaside town in a heartbeat, and I don't say that lightly. Posted Image

    So my weather station says 3.7'C at the moment but apparent temp is -0.1'C. How does it work that out? dew point and windchill?

    Hi BB, I really understand and I agree, in my West Wales example I think I would have my moments when I wanted to be away from the grey and the bleak, but the times when the sun breaks through a storm and lightens the sea, the switchback dark, light, dark of the windswept cloud-shadowed and sun-lifted hills, moments when crystal light fills every particle of the landscape, even the crevices of lichen-covered stones on the north face of ancient moorland, the sound of a storm rolling in, throwing its weight around then heading off with an 'I'll be back' swagger, the wave and wind-conjured ripples of sand on a low-tide estuary, hard under foot, filled and flattened as the tide's outriders push back in, curlew cries like death as small children hide in the dunes thrilling that they might be lost but, not liking the idea beyond a moment, wanting to be found again.

    Yeah I know but how does it work it out? Is there a standard formula?

    that lot in ireland looks a shade more organised

    Indeed it does - I wonder if it'll make it to here? It's falling as sleet already :)

    hi tom

     

    its a look outside jobby when it gets here

     

    the stuff incoming later looks more likely as should be heavier

     

    however it all depends on how well they hold up on the cross towards us
