We have the technology. We have the capability. We just need a bit of a whip round....if ever there was a need for a crowd fund.

They are fab. Managed to go on a tour last year as they are based in Stroud in the summer and we had a snowball fight with 25oC temps soooo much fun

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

Morning all, chillier than I was expecting this morning, currently 0.8 but dipped down to just below freezing overnight to -0.1. We seem to have had more frosts this year than we have for quite a number of years, makes a nice change :)

Oooo, lucky you. I imagine they're quite expensive to hire but tremendous fun having snow in high summer. Oh to win the lottery.

Morning! Dull and overcast here with a temp of  5.5c. Looking forward to some colder days so that I have an excuse to put the wood burner on in the daytime, whilst saving on the central heating. LPG gas is expensive!

So far this winter has been good for frosts and sunny weather. But by now I would have expected to have been able to use my sledge in the Brecon Beacons at least once! We've always been able to, almost every year without fail.

I can't help feeling that by 2020, there will be a 'flip' to much colder winters. Watch this space...

Beautiful sunny start, light ground frost, clouded over completely for about an hour from half nine and now a mixture of blue skies and variable cloud cover.

You are probably right NK. I'm just trying to remain positive.. I'm down in the dumps at the moment in general and would love some snow to cheer me up. I hate this time of year when the weather seems to promise so much and then not deliver. Praying we get upgrades soon. :sorry:

To be honest the embedded systems in place this winter have really steered the colder weather around us, and so it will continue. The sooner we move out of this into Spring the better, it's too far set now to do anything than small surprises, one or two days if we are lucky. Spring showers and summer thunderstorms now there's gorgeous for you. Let's not get low folks, this season is what it is, ignoring the MAD lot where acceptance of seasonal flows are "Stoopid".

A grey morning here, max tmp 5.6C. Wind has just recently veered round completely to the East, so things are set to change, albeit just for a few days.

Have to admit I'm completely bemused by the changes to the Model threads. Surely it would just have been easier to ban the troublemakers?

Hoping for a few rogue showers. Otherwise, yes, it was lovely to be out in the garden in warm sunshine last weekend...

I don't think there are really any trouble makers, just different folk wanting different things. Personally speaking, when there's a teeny whiff of possible snow brewing I struggle/lose the will to live trying to catch up on the Mod thread after a day at work, pages and pages of one liners to trawl through to get even a vague idea of what's happening. I reckon the new slower, more in-depth thread is brilliant for folk like me, far quicker to catch up and a better overall view of what's happening without all the 'boomtastic' posts.

Had a bit of rain not long ago giving 0.4mm. Nothing showing on the radar here but some of it was heavier than drizzle so would've thought it would show on there. Just in time for the dog walk.
