    As someone was posting snow pics I thought I would post these from when I lived in Dorset. The south dorset chaps on here will know that this is Worth Matravers on the southern tip of purbeck.  Photo taken in dec 2010 (of course). We rarely got snow here other notable years were 1994 96 and 2009.

     

    I'll only post the one as I don't want to embarrass you all with pics of my 3 level foot  :D

    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

    I often doubt the accuracy of the NW precip type radar feature because it snowed last week when showing as rain and vice versa has also occurred.

     

    Currently it is suggesting sleet over the Mendips and surrounds, anybody know if that is correct?

     

    It's not actually that cold at the moment, 4.1c and feeling reasonable.

    Yes we have steady sleet here, at one point we had a few wet flakes mixed in but it is just 1c to warm I think.

     

    Snow line is probably about 400m

    Its my birthday and I'll cry if I want to................................... cry if I want............... yep, you get got the picture.  :hi:

     

    If all else fails, just laugh at Mother Nature is doing to us.  :yahoo:

     

    Seemingly by Friday, some double-digits are due out West again, colder further East then an alternating remix (music on the brain!) of what we have endured most part of the Winter, brief PM flows interspersed with brief Ridges then rinse repeat. Looking to stay that way until late January I believe, limited snow hopes but maybe the highest hills will cop some temporary stuff.  :bomb:

    I am all a bout sharing.. Love to see whole region get a covering of the white stuff, then at least I know I'll get buried with no marginal rubbish..  :hi:   

     

    Long time coming this winter though :nonono:

     

    Think we should re-name our seasons - Spring, summer and the rainy season... :wallbash:

    Call me a pessimist, but I fully expect that trough shown on the ECM to be further east and for us to just be on the wrong side of it and any major cold.  :angry:
