    Another noisy, windy night - that's two interrupted nights this week now but at least no damage and no power cuts!  Reading the south east thread makes me smile though - for once they get to experience weather conditions we get all the time - and they don't like it!  Somewhat breezy out there but otherwise a nice morning now - dry and clear but much better than the heavy rain we had late yesterday.  Maybe a couple of dry days ahead so that's good!

    not likely dry - from beeb forecasts and euro4 - quite a few wintry/snow showers should be packing in over the next two days at least especially tonight into tomorrow - I feel so sorry for them in the south east lol

    Our neighbour now has an unexpected pheasant hut blown across the field into his and its upsidedown looks like its damaged another one blown into a tree wrapping all over the place,these huts are not that small either.

    Stormy night,dead spruce tree uprooted and fell on the fence here,more damage.

    Yes it was a stormy night and very noisy from about 1230 to 0230. Our next door neighbor lost a joining fence and various bits of garden furniture had gone a wandering. I also heard a few bins travelling up the road in the early hours, but there was little real damage. Cold now, this morning and it's been raining sleeting all day so far. Hopefully our elevation 208m might see a bit of whiteness over night :fool:

    It is known by both names the definition is "Graupel (German pronunciation: [ˈɡʁaʊpəl]; English: /ˈɡrpəl/), also called soft hail or snow pellets,[1] is precipitation that forms when supercooled water droplets are collected and freeze on falling snowflakes, forming 2–5 mm (0.08–0.20 in) balls of rime. The term graupel comes from the German language."

    I prefer the term soft hail to the anglicised German word or snow pellets. Just a matter of personal preference. :)

    beeb are underplaying this I should imagine then - sounds good to me - euro4 has to be taken with a pinch of salt anyway, they always under play the potential - yes and this mornings gfs has the front coming in tonight around midnight and then hanging around till 6pm sat - so yes real possibilities

    euro 4 totally backing off the snow potential for tonight - very weird, considering it's flippin bitingly cold in the wind out tonight, will have to catch up on the beeb forecasts as they were adamant that we were gonna get a little something out of this 1st front coming in tonight, i'll report back shortly lol

    Confused - sort of lol - Derek is going for rain/sleet/snow then - snow for mid and north wales - but by the end of the weekend at least we can look forward to milder temps to give us a break from the cold - before the next shot of cold maybe in Feb

    certainly is, it's moving south west to north east and within itself it's shifting north west to south east

    mOD has got to that stage where forecasts are Dire, and life just ain’t worth it.  Meanwhile large bits  of Britain , not the south, grant you , have had or are continuing to have, or will continue to have snow/sleet.  It ain’t that fab you know, once the oooh winter wonderlandness of it has passed and real life kicks in.  Will be quite happy with a teeny bit of mild, just for heating bills respite!
