    I have a plan......   All this marginal/north of the M4 malarkey is too boring to tolerate any longer, we've got to do something. Considering just how much rain we get down here, we could have the m

    I know where you are Mapantz!  I wondered if you would turn up last night... I was a bit shy to go up to someone and say ... 'excuse me but have you seen  Mapantz?' :) Looking forward to 3am when we have a little chance of some soft white stuff!

    Haha! Well I did turn up for 20mins in the quay last night- soaked through! I was on a bit of a mission last night, several jaeger's in a short space of time. Feel free to say hello though, I don't bite, I suck! LOL

    Clearish skies here - water on the car roof frozen solid, but the wind has really come up. Can see distant lightning to the South, towards Poole I guess. Let's hope something we all want really gets going in the early hours; curtains at the ready!!!

    Wouldn't worry about it, if only 2-5cm forecast on high ground i doubt there's going to be much lower down. Also it should melt fast by afternoon with milder and wetter weather coming in.

    I like the look of what's developing out in the Channel approaches / South Irish Sea. Intensifying with each refresh.

    Warming up nicely here as usual. 2.2oC to 4.4oC in last hour. Typical!

    Make that 4.7oC, surely the warmest place in UK at the mo.

    Now 4.9oC.

    Hoping to get the vest and flip flops out tomorrow morning.

    Same here, the shower just the NW of Oxford. Sleet in Kidlington, Snow in Carterton/Witney/Burford.

    Hoping the next shower to the West, has more eastward movement.

    Yeah, I'm thinking get in the car and see what happens but leave at 6am and BBC weather has forecast snow all night there. Heavy at times. In two minds.

    Lightning observed. Temp now up to 2.5C.

    Never had lying snow from showers, has to be a front or developing LP system.
