Yorkshire & E England Regional Weather Discussion

Recommended Posts

At least I'll have some black ice to look forward to on my way home from work in the early hours 

The met office should get that right at least.

I'll warn my insurance company now.

This band is lacking intensity over the region, no chance snow will get to lower levels unless we see it get heavier.

Had Sleet/Snow from almost minute one, but never been heavy enough to cause any issues on a wet ground....there is a light covering on the hills though....

It will be down to now casting, But I wouldn’t be to optimistic of them reaching the east of the Pennines. I think only the far west of our Region will really benefit from them and still not everyone will see them even in those areas. The main threat will be Ice it’s very wet out there and with the temps dropping sharply below freezing after sunset it could get very dangerous indeed. 

And yes Thursdays event needs to track further north than some models suggest but I’m hopeful..  However I’ve seen it so many times when these southward trends get hold we end up with a none event as it scuttles through just to our south as the midlands gets buried..🙄lol. 

Look beyond the hopecasting and you see that the system on GFS and ECM (and others) pivots somewhere over Yorkshire. Currently a bit north of me I think. There's a lot of desperate hope to send it south but (like today) it isn't happening. I do think it is arriving a bit more slowly, though, and it might arrive some hours later than thought.

Today pretty much as expected here - constant medium and heavy snow for up to four hours but with very little sticking because of daytime temperatures. Metoffice pretty much correct on temperatures, BBC on timing.

Thursday is a nighttime/early morning event and it does make a difference.

As very much expected today was a non event... the timing wind direction and temperatures were just all wrong for this to work.

Thursday looks better but it depends on the intensity of the precipitation....

Precipitation just not heavy enough this side of the Pennines as expected.

However I am not giving up on later in the week or February as a whole so onwards and upwards for me.  Well we can't go any further down!  😂

Weather warning system again too slow to update. Snow warning should be confined to the Pennines and ice warning should be left as it is.

Now dry. Haven't looked much at Thursday Friday although it may have shifted further south. Sunday peak district may see some snow rain and sleet elsewhere.

Miserable end to the day here, I think we may see some snow on the back edge of the weather front for about 10 minutes before it finally clears.

Need cheering up? Watch the SE England thread when most of it falls as rain 😂🤣. Although to be fair the front is turning snowier now...

Thursday looks a lot better because of wind direction and cold uppers over us. Shape of the low makes a big difference, we want to avoid milder air propping up the eastern flank!

And yes the south of England may miss out again! There will be a few angry users I think!

I thought this spell may have delivered this week, but then I realised I am in Hull...

Thursday delayed a little and precipitation weaker but still on. Looks like it will turn rain on the back edge.

Amazing to think that despite this winter feeling generally chilly (even December never felt that warm) we are thursdays snow event away from joining the endless of Autumn 2014 as failing to provide snowcover by the end of January. The dustings don't count, i am yet to wake up to a 1cm cover.
