Regional Forecast for North East England

Headline:

Feeling raw, with further snow showers and strong winds.

This Evening and Tonight:

Remaining bitterly cold, with raw easterly winds continuing to bring in scattered blustery snow showers from the North Sea, particularly affecting upland areas. There remains a risk of some further snow accumulation, with drifting of lying snow also expected. Minimum temperature -4 °C.

Friday:

Scattered blustery snow showers will continue to arrive on a strong easterly wind, with further accumulations expected and some drifting, although the latter should improve as winds ease later. Maximum temperature 0 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Remaining very cold with sunny spells and further snow showers, however winds will gradually ease, with temperatures also very gradually rising. Despite this, widespread frosts and icy stretches remain likely.

Went to the Pennines in the end. Should have gone to Teesdale, but there wasn't time, so settled for Weardale. Couple of shots...  

Here you go... I ventured fully out. 27991638_1593131500722016_1995411088115499008_n.mp4

Amazing view from mine right now moon and an angry orange sky!

Yesterday it was "frequent" , today "Scattered"  so probably not much tonight then.  Unless you hit lucky....

Well what a let down then.  The latest Meto forecast has basically downgraded the snow showers - I mean scattered wintry showers in an amber warning?

It says that anywhere the showers do fall further accumulations could occur and I guess with what's already fallen even a few more cms is potentially severe. Maybe that's why.

Got to admit I was a little bit surprised by the extension to the amber warning

The Netweather forecast shows no snow from 10pm tonight until tomorrow morning

least they are saying we could still get snow at the weekend which is an extension of the cold compared to what was expected earlier in the week:)

Still a few snow flurries blowing around in Boro

same here, been like this all day, bit snow, bit graupel... occasional moderate burst.

Still snow in the forecast for the foreseable, so take each day as it comes. Might get a few suprises along the way.

Really think the cold will hang on for a couple of weeks yet with more snow. No where near as cold as this week mind!

I think the reason why we aren' seeing the shower activity is because Emma is a lot further east that expected. I wonder if the met office needs to revise the red warning

As it stands, I still put Nov/Dec 2010 above this for the length of the spell, the sheer weigh and volume of the snow, the fact it was all big flakes, and the fact the Wear froze over!

LOVE the blizzards this time, though. That, for me, is the defining feature of this spell.

East of Newcastle having some heavy showers moving through 

Not particularly heavy, and more snow pellets than snow flakes. Pretty quiet here this afternoon

Completely agree, this is a cold snap not spell. 2009 & 2010 were Bette in terms of snow amounts and longevity

Hi, Ive been watching these forums all day and thought I'd ask the question, please note I'm new to all this weather forecasting.

Is there a chance that Storm Emma could push further North? It has already tracked further east than predicted.

The fact that Storm Emma is further East is the storm does pivot west like forecast could we see the tail of the storm?
