    It's really weird but there's nothing falling here. According to the radar I've been under PPN for the past 30-45 mins. Went outside to double check and nothing.

    Can confirm here is Sleet (Yate) so anything north of here in for a good chance to see some snow.

    That's where I can throw that one right out of the water. It was 2.5°C here the other night, with -8°C uppers, and it was raining. Wet bulb temperatures were too high, and the wet bulb freezing line wasn't low enough.

    Eeeeek wow.. Thats erm.. shocking. But worth noting.

    Temperature 1 C here in Stroud. Radar says sleet but just checked and light snow is falling so I'm off to bed happy and hope to dream of a winter wonderland!

    Should be very soon that the wind will pick up out of nowhere. Around 5mph gusts at the moment, but that'll change..

    Yeah. I think it was the initial wind switch that made it register a Southerly for a moment or two, before settling down to a South-Easterly. That should then switch to a Westerly almost instantly.

    Pressure really falling away now!

    I think it's time to get my head down for a couple of hours?! I hope those in our region that are in the running for something snowy do get something during this event. Be sure to post some pictures. :)
