It does look like a trough starting to push in from the Irish sea now. Might be slightly warmer around it but if you had snow today i'd say you will end up with a dusting by morning, even if it does turn to rain for a while..... Has the wind swung more westerly than northwesterly and picked up a little anywhere?


You must have some altitude, temperature up to 2.8c here with sleet.

Andy

what was it earlier?

No precipitation at all just a flash then almost instant thunder, now raining slightly

 

Atmosphere is obviously unstable, sounds promising.

you can see the troughs on the infra red out to sea and in lee of high ground on here. The showers pep up when the air meets coasts or hills etc.  http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/observation/map/#?map=SatelliteIRAndRADAR&zoom=6&lon=-3.16&lat=54.08&fcTime=1421406900

Snowing and lightening flashe

Yeah the lightening woke me up and then the thunder confirmed what the flash was.

Anyway still snowing so it looks like I'll be taking my daughter to work so hopefully the roads will be still clear.

Plenty of snow in the forecast for our region today so an interesting day ahead.

I want that band to drop a tiny bit south

That's very selfish of me though but I want snow. And I can't get back to sleep now.

I'm new to this so not sure what it is? Will check. Good covering of snow last nite on top of ice. It's snowing again now with a breeze.
