    Did you see the snow this morning? It was a nice surprise after yesterday's non-event!

     

    Hey noggin - nice to see you :)

    I had the day off today so, of course, I had a lie in after a silly night "on the watch" - which was fruitless.

    I did see that a flurry must have taken place when I got up. But I didn't see falling snow!

    Now, granted, I got up at 9:00am - that's probably taking liberties LOL. I had a great sleep, though!

    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

    Clouds just started covering the moon. There are only 47 pixel's worth of precipitation-bearing cloud left on the last 15 minute frame of the free radar that I use. I'm really clutching at straws here.

    Thank you.....it's nice to be back! I got up at 5.30 am and by 6 o'clock it was snowing nicely. The side roads were ghastly until about 8.30 when the sun came out and it all melted away. I wish I hadn't to be working as I would have loved to take some pictures and post them here. Still, there is plenty more Winter to come!

    Should learn to keep my mouth shut as it all died after my last message. Yes easterlys are the ticket for southern coasters just so precarious.

    I remember living in purbeck about 94 I think, we had tremendous snow that year. Even Upton got some then. Not sure how that came about in terms of where the cold came from East north or North West. All I remember is a front pushed in from France. Great day flying over the Lytchetts on the side of West man at worth Matravers. I remember the pub landlord converting a plastic barrel huge thing he cut it in half long ways and chucked himself shown the hill. The next time he did it all the pub dogs were in it too. Anyway I digress that was the best snow for me in Dorset. 

    I guess you're probably referring to the event of 15 February 1994.

    Even low lying parts of Devon and Cornwall saw lying snow from that, although near sea level it tended to stick around only for a day or two.  However, I think there's a good chance that on Dartmoor it would have stuck around for about a week.

    Hehe noggin 5:30 <-- what's that all about? More fool me that I missed the snow! This winter does feel different from the last few years, we're definitely in a better place for cold.

    Could be Feb before we see some action but at least it isn't all Atlantic rain.

    Some pixels off the radar got to me and there are great bid splodges on the patio......of RAIN

    The nearest weather station to me says Temp:2.4C and DP: 0.6 so be it. Sounds about right. Even 0.1 degree over Dew Point doesn't work around here unless it's gushing down.

    Running through the 18Z GFS the outlook looks chilly but dry. Next chance of snow (for our region) on this particular run doesn't look like manifesting itself until past 240 hours and out there, there's no point in looking.

    I'll take the dry away as a plus point, also some nice crisp sunny days (interspered with dredgy grey days) as the sun starts to climb higher and makes our daytime a little bit longer.

    If we get to anything like this (below) from the ECM at 10 days, then interest will start to peak again.

    Fantastic that's the one. Was a glorious day.

    Of all my years lurking I have rarely visited this thread. What an idiot I am! 

    I used to live in Keynsham/Mangotsfield nr Bristol but now I'm in Swindon. They are not that far apart really but what a difference in weather. 

    I didn't have high hopes for yesterday, I never do when snow is predicted. But we got a nice dusting and my work colleagues we're happy. I rarely tell them anything, they think I'm nuts! 

    Anyway, this thread is awesome and here is to the rest of winter, another whole 2.5 months to go!

    Thursday evening gave quite a few showers of graupel, sleet, and snow (often all within a couple minutes) here, though turned slightly more sleety with more rain in despite the temperature at the surface falling.

    There was ~2cm on the nearby hill that reaches 247m. Dartmoor had a bit more.

    Windy, mostly sunny and reached 6.1C yesterday.

    Frost hollow in full force this morning, -3.8C here (min -3.9C) and only this area seems to be below freezing in Devon. Looking at xcweather, the lowest observations on that are -3C and up in Scotland.

    Right, hopefully my temperature today won't reach a crazy 15c I have given it some cover. Hopefully it shouldn't warm up too much in there, but will see later I guess. If anyone else has a better idea that won't cost me loads, I'm all ears!

    Stunning place up there at the best of times but when it's snowed ..... it's just beautiful.

    had a great run up there yesterday battling the winds and can't wait to do it again.

    take care mate and enjoy your weekend.

    6 1c here. Supposedly. Sun and temp gauges et al. Incidentally when walking up on the higher ground we had a shower thinking might get a cheeky snow flake instead rain. So the milder air is definitely in.

    It's a shame EC monthly wasn't showing mild and mobile pattern consistently....would've been the worst winter for 100 years if we go on verification alone :nonono:
