The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion 19/01/2018 Onwards


Recommended Posts

Lots of snow showers today, many more than yesterday, but all light stuff. Melts very fast in any proper sunshine -- the sun really does have some power in it now. Not too bad to be out in, definitely preferable to our normal wet snow, since you can just brush your coat down when you go back inside. Max so far today 1.0 °C; if that isn't beaten it'll be the lowest max here since December.

Anyone with a macro lens needs to go and photograph the amazing snowflakes falling right now. This is the best i can do

So, both hi res models over which whose territory this system is evolving - Hirlam and Arpege (both I would have a lot of respect for) - have very decent accumulations forecast by Friday morning from

The really cold air starting to arrive now. Current temp' is -3.2c and was down to -3.7c  twenty minutes  ago after a heavy snow shower.

Yep...

It looks as if it is getting colder.

The BBC forecast said that it would be 2 degrees colder tomorrow with a much stronger wind, as the Easterly kicks in.

So it seems that the low overnight had some higher uppers which prevented the progress of the really cold easterlies.

That looks now as if it has been  swept out of the way as on the wider radar you can see these bands moving around the low which is now off the SE coast of Ireland.. 

So those guys reporting  'a pxssy cat' of a beast were actually correct.

In the last shower through here (20mins), we had every possible type of snow as the temp dropped from a high of 3C to a low of -1.4C as small heavy drifting snow (after the polystyrene had left a deposit) blew through. Finished off with some beautiful pillow sized flakes.

Is this the  nature of the beast?

Certainly is great to watch  :D.

Edit - was funny to see that the editor had changed pxssy to 'feline'!

Just checked the dutch radar forecast for tonight and it actually shows a stream of snow showers beginning around 6pm this evening into the midlands and lasting pretty much all night!!

Got a link Shaky?  something else to look at.

Certainly a more active - and therefore more interesting - day for Midlands shower activity compared to yesterday for most of us.

From what I can tell, everything is still approaching us from a NE direction - is that due to change?

Yep...

Will become a straight easterly by tomorrow apparently(and strengthen). That is why the streamer report from Holland is interesting.

Numerous snow showers here from mid morning onwards with some heavy ones bringing temporary white out conditions. Between the showers the snow is melting on pavements and roads but grass all covered now in about a centimeter. (or maybe two in parts)

Looks like a rash of showers will push on through tomorrow afternoon as the wind changes to more of a SE’ly.

Proper heavy snow here, visibility dropped right down, light levels dropped right down, settling on all surfaces inc wet tarmac car-park - exception being the line where all the school-run cars come in and out, rpesumably with salty grit on their tyres from the top road they turn in off! But even that's starting to cover over. 
 

 

A local Wunderground reckons -0.1C, feels like -0.7C, DP -2C.

LE3, West End of Leicester.... @ 15.00hrs Tuesday 27th Feb 2018. Report.

Suns out, few wispy clouds, no signs of any convective activity within 15 miles... Ish, current temp is stable at -0.7c, still as a cup of tea on a frozen mill pond, no sign of any snow in the next couple or 3 hours, nothing lying anywhere either...!!
