    The rabbit won't be happy if it can't stay dry, i was just thinking today a lot of half grown wild ones I've been noticing might not survive (with any luck).
    It's spectacularly blizzardy here just now, have done some video, but it won't be up until late or tomorrow am. -6 with it, anyone out on roads tonight wants head examined, truly dangerous if you got stuck and tried to walk far.

    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

    Seems a bit reduced to me too - good for Teeside, bit rubbish for the middle of the region, decent for Northumberland.

    It seems to have reduced all over from the past couple hours.  But more concentrated north and south ATM.  Hopefully it'll pick up again soon.

    And to think some in the MOD thread are hoping these conditions last until the end of March!!

    If only those hoping for it could actually experience what you have I bet they'd soon wish a break in the weather!

    Back after a long day lads. Morning was disappointing and despite every other bloody school in the county being shut, my 6th form was open- it's renowned for never closing so that was expected. Had a notice at around 10am that last period was cancelled and we were to head home at 2:40pm. Interesting for me because the teachers kept stressing to leave early and our school is known for NEVER closing due to snow. I thought that was quite fishy. I personally think the Met Office, via the council, notified the school to close early because they knew what was coming. 

    At around 11am we had some heavy snow along with thunder. Again at 3pm, very heavy snow with thunder and lightning. Visibility hugely reduced and it was a struggle to drive. Arrived at the Town Moor in Newcastle to sledge with friends and couldn't see anything. Absolute whiteout, looked like thick fog. We actually couldn't find the hill it was that heavy. Eventually did, after transversing 1.5ft drifts. At the top of the hill, I've never experienced anything like it. You could see the dark shower clouds roll in from the east. Bitter winds, drifting snow, exceptionally heavy snowfall. Absolutely unbelievable. Felt like I was in the Arctic. Temperature was probably -5 and windchill must have been well below -10. I was on my phone so took my gloves off and had to nearly hang up my hands were that cold. 

    Savour this lads because these low 500 thicknesses are extremely rare. An unbelievable experience for me and being 18, that was the best fall of snow I have ever seen. Trumped what I can remember of 2010 and 2013.

    Yellow warning updated for tonight

    • Darlington
    • Durham
    • Gateshead
    • Hartlepool
    • Middlesbrough
    • Newcastle upon Tyne
    • North Tyneside
    • Northumberland

    • South Tyneside
    • Stockton-on-Tees
    • Sunderland

    Between 20:25 Wed 28th and 23:55 Wed 28th

    Heavy snow showers are expected during today. There is the potential for travel delays on roads, with some stranded vehicles and passengers, as well as delays or cancellations to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected.

    Chief Forecaster's assessment

    Snow showers will bring variable snow cover, with the potential for 10-15 cm of snow where showers are most frequent in the north, while nearby locations may see only 1 to 4 cm. Southeastern areas of England should see overnight showers ease. Strong winds will lead to drifting of snow and severe wind chill, while lightning could be an additional hazard, particularly near coasts. The warning area has been updated again, this time to include parts of southern England where snow showers may produce 1 to 3 cm this evening. Amber and Red warnings are in force for areas seeing higher impacts.

    Aye even in valley bottom (Farndale) it's a total whiteout with drifting. Expect it'll be extremely bad on Blakey Ridge.

    Much as I love hearing about NY and Teeside getting pasted, is there any chance this sort of activity will transfer a bit further north as the night goes on?

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
