Yorkshire & E England Regional Weather Discussion

Recommended Posts

We must have a good 4 or 5" here in Scunthorpe now, the dual carriageway in front of my house is covered in snow, was supposed to meet an outside party to supervise a street lamp repair in Beverley, his attitude was awful, his contractors were 6 mile outside of Beverley and he felt I should still drive 36 mile to Beverley! The severity of the weather was completely lost on him! I said it won't benefit him or I if I get stuck in my car somewhere because if I can't get there to safety brief them, the work won't be happening. I was in disbelief at his attitude! It's been complete white out conditions here! I have put a stop to the work and told him to pick a date next week - no one messes with my safety :-) I've rang my mum who lives in Beverley and she confirmed it's as bad in Beverley, she put her little dog out for a wee at 5am and lost him briefly in the back garden due to the blizzards :-)

My partner hasn't ventured to work in Lincoln either today, it's bad there too.

I think places like leeds and bradford (city centres) could get in on game soon, the showers are aligning more favourably for these areas now

I really hope you are right. We are in Clayton nr Bfd City Centre. Its all been a bit of a let down. Are the charts showing us in line fpr a dumping?

Crikey what a difference 24hrs makes snows coming down here heavy, proper covering here and more to come, looking at predicted radar and there's a further few big areas coming in today from out at sea all the way from Denmark, to top it off text at 10.15 last night saying no need to come into work :yahoo:

Not even half a cm here this morning, grass is still visible. What a complete and utter let down. A potent easterly with -16C 850hPa temps and we've still had knack all.

I give up!

Anyone read 'The Snow'by Adam Roberts? 

And this is how the world will end...

"The snow started falling on the sixth of September, soft noiseless flakes filling the sky like a swarm of white moths, or like static interference on your TV screen -- whichever metaphor, nature of technology, you find the more evocative. Snow everywhere, all through the air, with that distinctive sense of hurrying that a vigorous snowfall brings with it. Everything in a rush, busy-busy snowflakes. And, simultaneously, paradoxically, everything is hushed, calm, as quiet as cancer, as white as death.

And at the beginning people were happy."

But the snow doesn't stop. It falls and falls and falls. Until it lies three miles thick across the whole of the earth. Six billion people have died. Perhaps 150,000 survive.

But those 150,000 need help, they need support, they need organising, governing. And so the lies begin. Lies about how the snow started. Lies about who is to blame. Lies about who is left. Lies about what really lies beneath. Less

3 inch in Bingley(LOW DOWN).

That 20 min blizzard was probably the heaviest I've seen.

Snowing fairly heavy now with more to come by looks of things.

I think with the wind being strong it will be drifting as well as the radar don't take that into account also! :) many happy people today and plenty more snow to come

An earthquake with a 3.2 magnitude has struck Cumbria, the British Geological Survey has said.

Could this have an effect on direction the snow moves in ??

We have good covering in Hessle but nothing significant nowhere near what thought would get but still enjoying this weather even if snowfall totals have being poor.
