A very disturbed night due to frequent gusting winds, not so much rain as I was expecting here but a real Bristol Channel rain maker for a large swathe of this region!

Git heavy snow in Princetown!

 

Radar looking good for you this morning! rain/sleet mix.....heavy on the rain down here, but now sunshine (whats that?) Walking up to Peak Hill / Leather Tor might catch a flake.

 

current temps 2.8 

dew point 0.7

 

If to get some snow I need the ppn to get a bit more intense.

You've had your fair share of snow this winter now! ;):)

I cant disagree AWD! Shame it barely settles.... Next time it does, in going to do as the Russians do and stock pile it!

Thanks mate, I reckon if you go up about 100 metres you would catch a flake mate....

It's amazing how local topography and wind direction can change situations in any one place. Yesterday was nowhere near as bad in my locality than was expected. Yes it was very windy and gusty but my Max gust was 47mph in the evening. With regard to rainfall as I predicted here yesterday morning we faired very well with just passing scuds of rain from decaying showers as they whizzed through. Yet 12 hours later and a wind shift to the West has led to a thoroughly wet night here with incessant showers and a cold raw West wind has given me 12mm since midnight and probably more to come through the day. I also witnessed some sleety bits hitting the windows a while back. If only we were 1000ft higher asl.

 

Just one look at the cloud movements around the UK and the North Atlantic indicate what turmoil the atmosphere is in with swirling fronts and depressions all over the place some in cold air.

wind gusts got me out of bed, very loud and also hard rain

 

sluice gates not in action

This is most interesting and fits in with one of my suspicions - that the problem is a mix of the sheer volume of water and the capacity of the final outfalls to discharge it. If those sluice gates have been left permanently lowered it is probable that the channel behind them has become heavily silted so even if the gates are  raised the flow might still be restricted.

I suspect insurers might be interested in that bit of video as it could lead to a mighty negligence claim!

 

Mods - could this post be copied to Somerset Flooding thread where it really ought to be seen. (I don't know how top do that)

This may be of interest to some in this area. I posted it in the climate area where it belongs but I know many don't visit there. This is not an attempt to introduce climate change as a subject but merely of general interest. Maybe the sea level rise at Newlyn

 

The Southwest Observatory.

Really rough night last night, heard a loud bang around 10pm, wondered what the hell it was, after going outside and looking around, found one of my bat boxes on the floor. thankfully it just missed the car, and also there were no bats in at the time.

Another wintry shower of sleet/hail and wet snow mixed in.

 

Nothing to write home about but also at the same time it's about as good as it gets this winter thus far.

 

Temperature and dew point has been lowering slowly this afternoon too which is encouraging if we can see some big showers this evening.

 

3.3c dewpoint of -1
