    Your all taking to much notice of these weather apps. They are next to useless and not meant for enthusiasts like us with time better spent on looking at radars and temperature gauges. My own take is

    There's quite a rash of showers over Japan, they might make it this far?

    Good morning everyone .  Just before I post  The amazing to weather phenomena that I've witnessed this morning ,  I'd like to say Ian Ferguson  if you read this and see this picture you have

    I suspect that I'll see cars covered in snow coming from high-up villages like Four Marks, while Winchester has the odd flake. Still - there's always the entertainment on the MAD thread.

     

    Shhhhhh! *Sob*

    METO have just done the same to me too. Suspect it may be something to do with the expected intensity, not heavy enough for evaporative cooling.

    Maxed out at 6.2 here now 5.7 so slowly on the down. That said I think that is because of the rain getting heavier mind ...

    The colder air doesn't arrive until winds have shifted out of the current WSW quarter and veers to the NW. This process is beginning as can be seen on the XC wind observation site where the temperatures has fallen off to 3C  on Exmoor with the boundary stretching down the Bristol Channel across Devon and South Cornwall.

    Hopefully we will see those 0/10s becoming 8/10s later as it sweeps through ...certainly though nearer rush hour one to track..... I remember the thunderstorm event in the 90s and if it wasn't for seeing people's reactions as it came down from Birmingham with "white out, white out" all the way to Reading, I doubt I would have ever made it home that night...

    Doesn't look like we are going to get snow here in Gosport. But then again if I remember rightly during the last snow event the MetO forecast sleet and we ended up with a brief snow shower. Rain: 5.2mm Rate: 5.2mm/hr. Temps stable.
