    Snow cover lasted till 2PM despite all the sunshine, now pouring down and blowing a hooley. Falling and lying snow, unbroken sun, torrential rain and gales- we have had more weather in the last 24 hours than the previous 4 months.

    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

    Hard to say but the low seems to have parked itself NW of Ireland ? looks a bit further south then forecast ? Temp still going up here 11.0c. Squall should be arriving 5-10 min.

    Tomorrow's wind further south than predicted maybe? I'm staying up for the squall line, but if it's only rain and isn't wind-or-other-interesting-weather-feature-based, then I may just call it a night

    Well it's gone through and nothing exceptional here. 32 mph gust and some heavy rain for about 15 min, will have to see what happens later today  :) Will be interested to see if the low has tracked differently to forecast ? and if that alters things.

    Some great short term upgrades this morning on the GFS, going for a feature similar to Tuesday to sweep across tomorrow afternoon with similar upper's then another feature early hours of Saturday with surfaces temps sub zero.

    No point fretting over Monday/Tuesday's low from run to run yet as they always shift 100 miles south/west last minute anyway.

    Don't worry, you can't call snow 3 hours away, let alone 3 days, it will not be bone dry.

    Storm did not amount to much here, with a max gust in the 48mph range. 

     

    Meanwhile the temp has plummeted since the skies cleared and is now just 0.4C. I can see the car taking on that "I'm just about to ice up" look.

    Lots of wind overnight, a few overturned wheelie bins on the way to work this morning.  Very mild overnight, reaching the dizzying heights of 9.1C.  Down to 4.6C now and the wind seems to have subsided.  2.8mm overnight rain.

    An interesting week or two coming up  :D

     

    Feels bitter already here a strong S/W wind gusting 32mph.

    Temp 4.1c

    Dp 1.8c

    WH -0.3c 

     

    Tomorrow we see much colder air sink S/E over the Midlands which heralds the start of the up-coming cold spell. Snow Frosts and sub-zero temps here we come  :cold:  :yahoo:
