All falling as snow here.  Coast must be marginal then but thunder and lightning is good to see / hear too so a little added bonus.  Nothing behind this so unless it gets going soon it'll be dry crisp and sunny.

Quite disappointing with the shower activity here but i predicted the North to do better.

Are we due more showers through the morning as it looks very quiet at the moment.

No more snow in sight for Darlo at the moment I've put up a rough arrow of the direction they're moving

According to BBC weather, the main activity is going to be concentrated down your way.  However.  The only thing I believe is the radar.

Just look as those streamers forming

This afternoon/evening we should see the most but even Saturday you wouldn’t rule showers out

I know mainly for the north of the region at the moment (missing me) but nice to see some this morning.  NS looks quiet for Wearside and Durham once these pass through but as we know the NS can easily spark more showers.  Dropped another 1+cm in that lat shower so happy.  Now to get some work done!

 

Is the wind direction supposed to change again?

 

Blue skies beginning to show now @Summer Sun - you can stop the sun-dance now it's worked lol

The wind is changing gradually to a Northerly - So the showers will hit just down the costal strip later

So how will Boro and the south of the region do in that?  I didn't think they did well in a Northerly?  I can do well in one but prefer NE / E

Looking at XC Weather I can't see a northerly wind direction setting up?  The winds which steer the showers onto land remains E/NE erly throughout today.

Winds turn more of a northerly through the night tonight as the high pushes in from west. 

Currently situation here is DRIP DRIP lol.

Gap between the to bands of showers will decrease, the area of showers over yorkshire and out in the north sea are slowly building and will eventually reach more southern parts of the region later.

We just need the sun to go down asap and the showers to be better than last night and we might be in with a chance lol. 

I don't class it as a good snow day if i can still see grass 😂

Well did a bit work and then checked the radar and as Doctor says showers pepping up nicely again.  May take an hour or so to reach us on the east coast but still lots to play for.  Strange as it's not really melting here either - still a good couple CM down and remained that way for now.

 

Edit: can see a fair number of radar returns are showing sleet but as is the case in these setups nowcasting is needed to confirm the conditions on the ground.

Set off to drive to Bamburgh this morning from Newcastle decided to turn round at Stannington as conditions were not good - heavy snow and almost down to one lane - spoke to my friend who I was meant to meet who was driving back to Durham said between Beadnell and A1 number of cars in ditch, and A1 from Ellingham down to Felton was down to one lane where dual carriageway. Good covering in Newcastle but showers seem to be passing to the north at the moment

Morpeth already had 2" from last night and has been under a streamer for a while.  Still under it.   That area of Northumberland seems to be a sweet spot for streamers.  In March last year they got one and had 3 times snow depth of me and in 2010 they had over 2ft of snow just north of Morpeth due to streamers.
