My drive home from work tonight! Shame it didn't stick around!

Snowing here, and now settling quite rapidly. Who'd have thought it.

Radar image shows a lot of shower activity to our NW over Galloway and N Ireland heading in our direction. Just had another very heavy hail/wet snow shower but again short lasting. However, activity in next 12 hours looks like delivering more notable lengthy periods of precipitation with a trough forming in the flow.

3 separate snow showers here today

 

the most prolonged left a good cover on all surfaces that lasted for about 30 mins before the sun melted it

 

feeling very cold -5c wind chill

 

 

Yes not a day to be out on the fells - significant wind chill. Pleased you managed a cover, here the showers have been too fleeting to enable a cover, but we may get lucky overnight.

 

Where is your location?

 

There is often a marked difference in conditions between north and south lakes as well as west and east lakes. Indeed there is a separate entity called central lakes as well centred roughly on Thirlmere-Grasmere-Ambleside-Langdale area extending its influence towards us and Patterdale. which often does well in slow moving trough scenarios when a warm front moves in from the west and we have a SE/S flow, also in any set up when evaporative cooling takes hold i.e. polar air moving in from the sw/west/nw and as it rises it cools over the western fells bringing down temps and aiding shower development, classic territory for homegrown Lakeland snow showers.

Northern end of Bassenthwaite Lake

 

Yes i find south lakes does much better from anything coming in from the west / south west, and the north lakes benefits most from anything Northerly through to Easterly.
