    ROFL @ South Today team earlier this evening. Sally whatshername turns to the weathercaster and says "it's going to be very very cold tomorrow ".

    Oh yes 7C , since when has that been very very cold? Oh I know, when you live in Barbados.

     

    I thought average max temperature in January was around 5c  :rofl:  :rofl:  Must go look it up now.

     

    Just checked for me it is 4.5c and warmest parts of west country it is around 7  or 8 - 10  for cornish

    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

    Agreed. Trough circa 3am may extend snow showers across even to S of London (hence UKMO warning amended). Meanwhile, latest UKV and MOGREPS signal for snow remains particularly strong for Exmoor and M

    What a beauty!   By far the best chart of the Winter, very much deserving of an OMG for this regional.      You couldn't make it up, just remember as a NWP model chart at t+84 hours, it is jus

    Been here too many times, each run gets progressively worse until we end up with a little sleety wet snow for a day or two before back to mild rubbish. I'll be up early so hope to see a little snow before I jet off to the big city (Bristol) for work.

    WINTER IS OVER ;)

    Not sure it's really started.

    Ok, slight exaggeration but this 'Winter' is fast becoming v similar to the late 90s/early noughties winters, or even early/mid 70s, for those of us a little older.

    On another note i saw today that Moscow and Oslo were above freezing yday - now that's mild for mid-January, so there's not even the normal sub-zero cold to 'import' on any Easterly that may turn up.

    Give it another 10 days or so and i'll be hoping for a warm early Spring, if a snowy spell doesnt turn up.

    Hello, well it's just got below freezing here, I'm not getting my hopes up here but gritters were out earlier and we are under a snow warning again. I have a chance of seeing some snow tonight and it will settle if it happens, it's just what do you guys think of my chances being just 5 miles from the coast?

    Weather app now suggesting top ttemperature on Monday of just 2c. Proper job is that. Funny as 2 hours ago it was suggesting 5c for Monday. No one really knows what's going on.

    I think the models will revert back somewhat tomorrow, and we forget about the here and now - my meto app says 5 hours of snow for 5am onwards tomorrow morning! Temperature here has plummeted to -1.3 so bring it on I say!

    -1.5C currently with -6C uppers over us. The temperature will only go down further overnight. If anything other snow falls in this location given all that, I will be gobsmacked. Good night all!

    From Ian:

    @fergieweather: W COUNTRY So, a bit more upland snow likely early Sat AM; e.g. Mendips. Not impossible for some patchy small amounts of lower-level settling

    Not holding my breath. Although temps and dew points right now look good, all of us in low lying areas (below 100m) are used to seeing rapid increases in these just as the ppn approaches, usually turning what could have been instant snow into a rain > sleet > snow event (or vice versa), if we're very lucky. Further inland (and obviously with elevation) from where I am seem to do better but I'm expecting my current 0.9C and -1.1C DP to rise before that ppn entering the channel hits. (THIS IS VERY IMBY SO GOOD LUCK TO THE REST OF THE REGION!!)

     

    Still won't be able to resist seeing exactly what it holds, though! haha! I have to know!

    Temp and dew points have actually dropped quite substantially here over the last 15 minutes so there's hope yet!

     

    0.6C and DP at -1.3C

    Ian's post in the MOD thread a couple of minutes ago is well worth a read.

     

    Edit: 0.3C   DP -1.4C 

     

    (I don't mean to leave a running commentary on my temps but it does indicate a rather rapid decrease over the last half hour or so)

    Could be an interesting morning the temp has really dropped here in marazion not sure what it is reading but i feel we could be in for a few surprises in the morning.

    As expected, interesting development out in the South Irish Sea pushing towards the channel. Sferics showing off Pembrokeshire coast.

    Right I'm off to sleep see you all at 6am..

    -3.1C and falling it's just what the wet ground needed to be honest as until now it's always fallen on wet warm ground.

    Well, I'm envious of you living in such a beautiful part of the world!

     

    This site can give a semi-decent heads up of nearby (ish) temps, Dew Points, wind speed and direction, etc. not bad considering the westerly flow.

     

    (Google xc weather)

     

    Culdrose and Cambourne looking much better than out in the Scilly approaches but I know you're almost like an island down there in Marazion so who knows!
