I’ve seen lightning to the SW from up here in NE Somerset. We have had a few sleety snowy showers over recent hours when the wind really whips up but nothing of note. Incidentally I am not a lover of those BBC Weather or Met Office rainfall apps. Worth £20 a year to subscribe to the V7 radar from here. Even the free radar apps are better than hopecasting from a graphic. I have mine set up to alert me when a shower is approaching then go on sentry duty out of the upstairs window before it arrives. The wife thinks I’m mad.

Thanks Gibby I have the V7 but never knew you could set it up to tell you! 

Do you think we will see much shower activity in this part of region later? I dont understand the warning seems very ott.

Do you have a subscription to the radar? If you do, ask Paul to be added to the beta so you can download it on your Android device. To be fair though, the notifications for rain don't work that well. I haven't had a single notification all day, despite it being enabled.

My wife also thinks I’m completely bonkers, not to mention the elbow I get for letting the warm air out when I open the door for closer inspection :nonono: it’s snow for goodness sake! It’s worth the sacrifice of a slight draft!

No it’s not the V7 radar that alerts me it’s the Weather and Radar app on my iPad and phone that notifies me. I often use it in conjunction with my Facebook weather page. Incidentally the sferics over a South Somerset will be in the Poole area soon. It’s all moving at quite a lick.

Here’s the latest screen grap off my app. It was showing sferics down over Ilchester way but they are now removed. Obviously not been a strike over recent minutes.

That app is a con! On Android, you have to pay for the Pro app, making users think they get the premium radar, and then they tell you that you need a premium subscription on top to be able to view the pro radar. I soon deleted it!

It's snowing in Taunton, dewpoint here is positively tropical so not expecting to see anything.

Who's this Robomod chap? He's messaged me and told me I'm not an active member anymore, cheeky beggar!

Who told you it’s snowing in Taunton ? granted I’m not actually in Taunton at the moment but a bit outside we had a heavy hail shower, accompanied by thunder and lightning!!
