On current check there are 2819 online on the Netweather forum and 958 on TWO. 

Netweather is also far more feature rich on the forum side of things than TWO, so they have it relatively easy.


That said, who do you host with ? AWS and Azure can scale up dynamically pretty damn quickly during traffic spikes from my experience.

I am afraid that is not something I know about :) 

There have been snow flurries/showers on and off all morning but only putting down a very light dusting so far. I am quite interested in tomorrows snow maker, it looks quite good for those who are in its path. Still models at odds with exactly where it will go, the final answer will be revealed this time tomorrow.

Thanks for the summary, Supacell. I was about to catch up on the MOD thread, but I think I'll give it a miss if the wrist slashers are running amok this morning. The negativity in there can become very draining after a while.

looks good on chart SS posted in short range model thread, but looks sleety later Tues

Sleety? With -14 uppers, 504 DAM and negative due points? Not possible.

Just a bit. They're super negative unless there is two feet of snow predicted for London & the south in general, with atleast 4 weeks of sub zero maximima temps...

Couldn't just be happy that we've got atleast 5 days of a potentially historic cold spell for this time of year :yahoo:

 

In other news, lots more showers headed this way, just started snowing here actually. Light but steady. :)

No that's impossible, anything that falls from the sky from now until at least Friday will be snow, after that is still open to question.

All the computer models look good for the Midlands on Friday. GFS is the closest to turning the snow to rain, as usual.

I would imagine that the original post is referring to things turning sleety next Tuesday March 6th. No chance there will be sleet tomorrow.

Report on LE3 

Sunny/cloudy mix, -1.3c sun trying hard, but struggling... Large snowflakes spiralling downwards, no density yet, the snow is sort of making B-Lines for Wall corners and car wiper blade parking spots!!!

I would not bother with apps when it comes to snow showers; and charts can only give an idea. North Nottinghamshire looks very well placed for snow showers this week. I would stick to radar watching from now on :)

Light snow coming down here now. Considering this was formed all the way over in the North Sea and has made it this far west is encouraging.

Yep. To be fair, while most models have not done well showing the showers making it this far inland for today, looking at the Met Office warning areas it seems as though they themselves were expecting them to do so. Who'd have thought it, a professional weather body knowing better than publicly available model outputs :D

XC has a forecast for Monday next week for us to get over THIRTY CM of rain...??? :D 

I think the software is a little 'tired and emotional' at present :D

Some of the flakes are fairly chunky as well so providing intensity picks up at some point there should be a covering.

getting a few light flurries, and a dusting of snow,   then it stops, what little had settled then thaws, that's the current situation where I am at the moment in Burton on Trent.

I’d advise peeps to just enjoy the next few days and not worry about the weekend onwards till Thursday. I still don’t think the models have nailed down the end of this week yet, think the latest ICON run is a step in the right direction. UKMO looks a reasonable evolution also.
