    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

    Wintry showers of hail and rain are the order of the day on a strong northerly wind At the moment that is gusting 45mph and with a temp of 6C I don't think I will be venturing very far, It's worth a quick glance at the Camborne 00 sounding which is good example of being in an unstable Arctic airstream. Tropopause down to 431mb. :shok:

    As expected the Cotswolds and the even longer track from NW eventualy meant the showers fizzled out. Few flakes in the wind. 

    Seen by the radar in space of 20-40 mins.

    Typical. Missed even a sprinkle by 5 miles again. At least I didn't waste time staying up to see it fail.

    Looks like the band of ppn is quite a bit further west than thought and arriving quite a few hours earlier. Could be a few suprises I think.

    Yes seems to me the band is heading directly south good luck to all in its path.

    Same shower blowing through Warminster, only the 3rd time in nearly 4 years living in this house that there has been a dusting.

    South glos gap holding strong at the moment hope it fills in

    is it me or is the main band coming down the UK a bit more west than forecast? 

    Yeah it is! Taking a look at models it's quite a lot further west. Think it is predicted to swing off to the east mind, but we live in hope!

    Attached is Arpege, Euro 4 and Hirlam respectively - Euro 4 is slightly behind as its only 6 hour intervals, but looks closer to the mark than the other two!

    The band coming down from the North at the moment is not only slightly further west but seems to be moving slightly faster then anticipated also it's already an hour a head it seems

    Do however expect it to swing round the East and move SEwards in the coming hours! More Eastern members may get a covering but even with it being further west, I don't think I have much of a chance!

    Even if it did make it here, it's still 4C somehow, so would definitely be rain. That's up from earlier in the night, why weather gods why?

    NMM 00z take on the situation - band further west as it moves South and predominantly snow:

    nmmuk-42-11-0.png

    Puts me just inside the band. However, NMM 00z didn't really identify any of the showers that have fallen west of here overnight and are falling now:

    nmmuk-42-7-0.png

    This may suggest that it is underplaying the extent somewhat in those areas. Also current track is further South (about an hour ahead) than modelled on this run.

    EDIT - BBC Graphics have updated, but even though they have backdated to 6am, they don't accurately represent the precipitation that was falling at that time, so not much confidence in their forecast, which has all the snow this morning in the south-east again, in direct conflict with the metoffice graphic in the post above.

    Current temperature -0.3C following overnight minimum of -0.4C.
