Alignment of showers through e.g. Bristol area eastwards critical to this.... UKV paints 1-5cm lying snow east of Bristol/Mendips areas/B&NES uplands/M4 corridor S Glos-Wilts (and Exmoor). But we can't yet be sure on the alignment signal shown in the high-res products.

Never mind about snow Ian we have just had one of the most intense hail storms in Radstock I have seen for years. Ice everywhere making our rush hour very difficult

Send it this way Gibby, I doubt his mind (fergies) is on the snow of course but hopefully the Prime Minister's mind is on getting help from overseas. Looking at the news regarding today's storm and its power outages, the widespread flooding and damage to businesses countrywide, we are at A CRISIS POINT. I don't like getting political as this is an unprecedented set of circumstances which has arrived, largely courtesy of Mother Nature but we need HELP, more especially given the time this will take to get back to any kind of normality, weather permitting.

Phew, got that off my chest, time for a soak in the bath and back for more news later.

I have been upstairs watching the intense shower (which has given Gibby's area hail and lfcdude his thunder) pass just to the North of Warminster with the hail curtains showing very well against the clearer dusk background. The hail was swirling beneath the cloud base and I may well have witnessed some rotation a few times.

absolutely fantastic sky clouds as that storm tracked to my south from here about an hour or so ago ,grabed camera which as been out in car for a while battery flat ,grabed my old manual camera no film ,not sure of exact wind gusts here but would say short of burns day storm ,but sat in amazement watching our fir trees .If the synoptics and track of late fridays storm come in to line right it  could be just as bad ,take care all and get some sleep tonight some will see the white stuff some wont ,cheers .

Just got in from work and was sure I saw lightning towards the west just as I left. Just checked the radar and yes!

It been an horrendous day for guys with storm Tini  i do hope people are safe and not putting themselves at risk, ive not been on and posted much as making sure my house is "ok" for Friday  IF  this storm comes off. We had several hours of it being very windy here with some beefy gusts, all quiet calm here now but the sea state is very rough..

 

Now i have heard conflicting evidence about Fridays storm, that one - it is just going to be a deluge of rain and nothing more (this has not come from NW but other weather sites)), two - whereas others are saying it may possibly be like today's storm, and by looking at the ensembles it is still pretty much on. It is too early to tell what this storm will do and im really hoping it dont come off that bad, and three - there will be no storm or accumulative rainfall amounts. So yeah pretty confused at preset, however looking at the runs etc it is still on Posted Image

 

We have had more landslips again today

You can see the threat Ian was alluding too earlier for a covering of snow over the Mendips and surrounding uplands and also the moors of the SW.

I think its going to be hard to predict. Every hour the MO app has changed its mind for dartmoor.

Good evening all! Was driving back from amesbury back to bulford about 35 mins ago as I reached the top of our hill, which on a clear day you can see the white horse. There was a flash of lightning which lit the whole sky. Pretty spectacular. School run was interesting this afternoon as alot of parents were struggling to get to the school with trees done flooded roads and traffic delays mainly caused by traffic lights not working. Im now hoping to see a little bit of snow.
