South West and Central Southern England Regional Weather Discussion 09/12/2017 onwards


Recommended Posts

I've looked at this forum for a couple of years now but decided to join.

Heavy rainfall in early hours here but has lightened now,  the met office app is showing some light snow this evening and the wunderground website is showing snow for most of the night, obviously these are changing every time they update. The temperature is currently 7c but is supposed to drop to 2c in the afternoon.

I'm hoping something like the GFS18z last night can come off which showed snow through the whole night here. I'm also hoping that the low tomorrow will correct northwards but i'm unaware what this would require.

I hope many people get snow :)

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

Temp was meant to hit 6-8*C in far S this morning and then fall rapidly in the afternoon, the main issue today-tomorrow is less whether it turns cold enough and more whether there’s sufficient precipitation still falling to produce any lying snow once it has done so. Models are 50:50 on this so I’m not daring to expect much down here in the far S.

Yep - as expected the West Country snow shield going to remain firmly intact. All rain today and then as the system slides away the back edge snow not going to be particularly significant and very unlikely anyway west of Dorset. Sigh. All extremely disappointing for snow hopers... and if my blo*dy roof blows off this morning that will just be perfect. 

Move on to later in the week.

I hope this metoffice forecast is right showing snow in a hour and then snow on and off for the rest of the day but i'm not confident on that!

And look at the temperature contrast!

I'm beginning to lose hope too. We were forecast sleet between 9am and 10am but it's just been rain. So frustrating when the snow is so CLOSE!

It's sunny and calm in NW Bristol - the temp shot up 1 degree to 3.8 in an instant. Is this the eye of it? 

Temp here in Yate has gone from 1.3c to 4.7c in the space of an hour it seems dew point is currently 4.1c also. Might have to get the bbq out at this rate

Temp is dropping here though Smartie, currently 4.8c and still falling. It was 7.0c at 9.15am

Thankfully the wind has died down too.

W COUNTRY 2/2 Later today & this evening, the 'backwash' weakening remnants of the main occluded front sink S. In turn, this introduces a new or renewed risk of sleet/snow into areas not hitherto affected, eg Bristol, N Som & S'wards: not expected as bad as to N, given weakening
