The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion - 07/12/2017 Onwards

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised by how localised it was last night. Nuneaton which is 10 miles doen the road from my girlfriends house in Rugby hardly saw any settling snow and neither did Coventry which is 20 miles away. This was the scene in Rugby at 10am this morning, a fair bit of snow around...

What a day... well it was snowing very heavy when I went to bed. Woke up at 6am to the sound of all the power cutting out, great... I look outside, a good 7 or 8cm I think. Though I was super tired so went back to bed til 10am. By the time I got up it had melted considerably, probably half that amount. Anyway still no sign of power 4 hours later. Another 4 hours go by and it's now 2pm, no power. Suddenly I hear helicopters, look out my window, and I can see one and hear another!. It was one of those electricity line inspection helicopters flying in the fields just outside my house, clearly they were still trying to find where the fault had developed. At the same time there was a small fleet of 5 or 6 Wester Power Distribution land rover defenders driving through the village and surrounding fields trying to find the fault. Anyway as of 5 minutes ago the power came back on, so they obviously found it.

I got a fairly decent video of the helicopter. Pretty cool. It cuts off abrubtly as the end as I switch to the photo mode to try and get some good snaps too, :D

 

 

Really cool! Whereabouts in South Leicestershire are you again? I went through some villages on my way home this morning and they had been plastered. South Kilworth and Welford especially.

Willoughby Waterleys :D

Yeah can't remember ever having two good events in one winter, let alone 2 weeks apart. Though it's a bit annoying they have both been either while I am on holiday or at the weekend, I want to be snowed in so I can't get to work :D:D

Not far from those villages that I went through then! Haha I know! I'd love to see a proper Easterly set up at some point this Winter. It probably won't happen as they're quite rare but it would top off what has already been a brilliant Winter for snow in the Midlands and we still have 2-3 months left! 

Normally we're lucky if we see a dusting.

Maybe some snow showers later here when the winds turn more WNW? can see them in the distance to the west.

If not, back to Madrid on Sunday although living in Spain I have been surprised just by how consistently cold those nights are in the winter, most morning in December started off around -3/-4c though very dry air so almost never a frost.

the wind is set to veer more north westerly later, so we may get a few rogue showers into the central midlands overnight.

If so, we'll have been spoilt :-)
