    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

    Nothing but rain in Bristol & it looks to stay that way for a good while yet.

    Main threat for Bristol area is later today after front has cleared away, to leave scattered "clumps" of PPN around Bristol.

    Hi all, Andy in Poole here. Haven’t posted in a few years. I’m a geography teacher but a complete novice when it comes to understanding the “Snowology” :p jus wondering what our chances are of seeing any of the white stuff potentially tonight into tomorrow. Haven’t read much about that potential low pressure system coming from France in a while and the meto app has hardly any precipitation forecast at all.  Thanks, Andy

    If it does move South then we would be back in the game.

    Is there any chance it will?

    Fully expecting it to in the coming few hours. Had a sudden wind change to the west in the last ten minutes though so it's still going the wrong way.

    This is mental, after a steady fall in temps the winds pick up and the bloody temps shoot up

    Really depends on if we have any precip left later when the temperatures really drop. I’d say probably unlikely for us. ☹️

    Must say the Netwx SR Model has modelled this extremely well so far determining the northern extent of the mild air.

    Its these situations that make it worse when its snowing only 20 miles to are north probably less and cold rain down here and even if it does turn to snow it will never settle but for those that do have the snow enjoy it as it is the first proper snow event since January 18th 2013!

    Incredible as well for areas in Bristol, current temperatures observations show Bristol currently at 5'c, whereas Filton currently at 1'c.

    I can imagine that it's not much fun for [email protected] . Are you in a built up area or on the edge of Camborne ? 

    Im in a built up area and I think fence panels will be splitting and cracking if not being blown down . 

    I'm on the western edge, I'm hoping the worst may be through now.
