I'm finding the uncertainty exciting and excruciating :D

So glad I'm not at work this weekend, I can just enjoy/despair at the madness.

It was certainly a busier Saturday shift than usual today, thankfully off tomorrow!

Interesting.

For tonight we have got a lot of heavy rain. On BBC it is saying the temp will be zero at 11pm and then it will warm to 4 degrees by 5 am.

But it's based on model data rather than actual observations. It's a "best guess" if you like.

Do you have access to the new Met Office doppler radar that shows actual snow falling rather than just model based predictions?

They happily told the public on twitter about it earlier, then later mentioned it not for public use.

Gone are the days of having to wait half an hour for the Met Office radar to update. I love having 5 minute updates, it makes tracking things so, so much easier!
