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

Settled on the cars and road, got some pics - will try and upload later (nothing special like)

Lol what a joke that was. Little bit of snow then just heavy slushy sleet, after a low of -1.4C and now 01.4C. Looks like a proper struggle to get pure wintriness here this year.

We had rain so at least we are consistent, now waiting for tomorrow's downpour. Mind you it was definitely cool last night @-3.2c. So black ice was the order of the morning.

I was thinking the same! Odds on it rains Tuesday too.

Probably lol, I saw a few mentions in the mod thread this morning about it looking good for most of the UK, except the sw! Still there appears to have been a swing back West with the lp with the overnight runs and who's to say this westward push won't continue more, if it does things could be looking up.

Guarantee it'll be m4 north lol, the amount of times that phrase is used is ridiculous.

Just goes to show one can't double guess the weather. Even when conditions are right it won't snow. Probably why I never got above a B in GCSE Physics - half of it doesn't make sense!

 

Fingers crossed something delivers in the next few days. Hasn't been anything less than average for January so far.

Nah, I go north of the A40 this time. ;)

While we're at it, it'll probably be East of the A49 too.

Although this week is a marginal mess for us I see repeated chances of snow throughout the week and even tonight maybe, could end up being a great week or a very damp let down, its my birthday this week so maybe just maybe I can see some snow on the 19th to make it magical  :)

Mhmm .. I think that warning should have been extended further south. I did point out early showers yesterday and day before, and what happens? It gets down to -3°C and a shower passes over, ice everywhere, 8 car pile up at the Bakers arms roundabout. That's twice now, a multi-car pile up happened in December, and no warning was out.

Currently 6.8°C and sunny.

Why do iPads do that?? Type a lengthy post, pop over to another tab, come back to this one to finish typing the post, it refreshes and post gone!

I thought I'd answer that in here s4.. It's down to RAM management. Chrome does the same on 80% of tablets. Coming back to tabs already open (and not refreshing) uses up a fair bit of RAM, a refresh releases that RAM.

I had the same problem on a Samsung tablet with 2GB of RAM. Since switching to a Sony tablet with 3GB, it no longer refreshes when multitasking or switching tabs. A welcome relief, I can tell you!

Something else wrong there as I've never had any refresh issues with either of my tablets, nexus 7 & galaxy note 10.1,with multiple tabs open in chrome both tablets still have loads of ram left! 2gb is more than enough for multitasking.

Edit : also down to which version of android the tablet is running, newer versions have much better ram management, probably why I have no issues as both tablets are running upto date os versions.

Galaxy Pro Tab has one of the highest specs out there, Android 4.4.4 (one before Lollipop) and it still does it. It's the same on the iPad.

Nothing wrong, that's exactly what happens. But, as I said, not on all tablets. I was using a Samsung galaxy tab pro with 2GB of RAM, and it was shocking! The RAM management was terrible on it, 80% in use with just the web browser open. I searched about this, and lots of people reported the same, so I ditched it.

The refreshing of tabs is RAM being released because background pages are being closed to "efficiently" manage the memory.

There used to be a Bandwidth management option to turn on/off preloading of webpages.

So a quick run through with Farmers Weekly weather does suggest that rain will be our major player down here with snow more towards north midlands.

If it's gonna rain then let's keep the temps up to avoid the aggro of black ice which is lethal.

About turn....

From today's Bournemouth Echo after yesterday's warning we have :

UPDATE: Snow now unlikely, say forecasters - weather warning for Sunday cancelled.

I think I'd prefer a clear frosty spell than one with repeated snow let downs and slushy messes. Driving to Reading tomorrow so quite glad no snow is forecast, or even heavy rain for that matter.
