The Midlands - Weather Chat


Recommended Posts

Folks, there was never going to be much if anything at low levels, was always going to be a 300m+ setup, as we had no real cold in place

 

I did see a good heavy flurry last night, was only going to be leading edge snow before the milder air moved in

 

0n models, cold shot possible late next week 30th, but looks like a high level snow setup again

A cold clear day, With everything still frozen. A few shots while out walking earlier. Temp 0.4c Dp -1.9c WC 0.2c

METO should have followed the map 

Great Longstone at 11.00am this morning pretty difficult journey, what with fog and blowing snow very tricky approx. 20 to 25cms   also plenty of vids from Beeley Moor most are at 250m to 350mtrs

Nothing here. Just wet.

 

Can I just say that the NMM did pretty well. It seemed pretty accurate with it's distribution of rain, sleet and snow and also with the location and PPN intensity. 

 

So wrong side of marginal for probably the 1000th time. I'd just love, for once, to see a non marginal event. -2c outside, -10c uppers etc. Good solid snow that settles immediately. Yawnnnn

You could always move to the Peak District SSIB! :) 

 

Probably didn't help that the METO were ramping up yesterday whilst the models were quietly downgrading it

Knew the game was up about 7pm last night, when dew points crept above zero and my met office app changed from all night snowfest, to sleet and then rain by dawn! The whole thing was further north than expected and with it the mild sector.

Disappointing but then my hopes were never high. Looks like we may seem some more north westerly attacks towards end of month, so further potential falls for the north and high ground in midlands. Not seeing much for low ground.

hopeless! Can't they get ANYTHING right?

Is your reading correct ?

 

I have 2.4C on my reading here between Solihull and Shirley.

Still warmer than forecast.

 

According to MetO (BBC at 8:20 and 8:30) Temp max for the midlands today will be 5C in Gloucsr.-

Here was forecast to be 3 in Bham and 4 in the South East Mids.

 

At 05:00 this morning I looked out to heavy rain, but still quite a covering on the grass.

 

I see that it is still snowing in Stoke. That appears to have been the snow line north. (About 100 miles further north than forecast due to that pesky low pressure sticking around South Wales for too long. It seems to be filling insitu.

Just took this shot..

Nice one PM-yes your elevation makes a big difference.

I had a brief sprinkling around 11pm last night but it soon went and now it's just a dull drizzly morning.

Realistically  a marginal event was always the favourite outcome and so it proved.

well I for one give up now.  all these marginal events are becoming too common and this winter is rapidly turning into a non starter as far as snow is concerned for the midlands south.  I am going to stop listening to the models too as they are too unreliable and just stop being so optimistic as regards snow and cold.  Britain is very good at producing cold rain and wind but not much else.  If I could move abroad I would.  Tired of it now.

Well the Nottingham snow shield worked a treat albeit slighly late kicking in, went to bed at 11pm to heavy snow beginning to settle, woke up this morning to nothing & drizzle LOL

 

However by all accounts North of Nottingham eg Mansfield etc does have a decent covering, another case of so near yet so far. However can't grumble too much this winter after the treat we had boxing day

Just been to the South east thread....

 

Dare I tell you?

 

They are reporting colder air from the continent is filtering in now.

The drizzle is turning to snow across east of Anglia and Kent even into East london on a south east flow.

This is also the source of the air for us now.

 

It may turn back later here.

Don't tease so!

I don't think the collective psyche on this forum can take any more emotional roller coaster - lol
