Looks like parts of north devon are being down graded back to yellow? Is this because the storm is starting to go in another direction? I am ? ?

Hi south westerners, well I made a punt of three feet of snow a few days back and amazingly I think my punt is still in the game!! With gale force winds, snow drifts may well be much higher than that!

I got a little mocked on the MOD thread when suggesting an historic blizzard for the SW - well of course it isn't 100% in the bag yet as milder air is painfully close to the channel throughout Thursday/Friday - but the closer you get to the rain line, the more snow you are likely to get, I imagine!

For me in Hampshire, even though I'm in the amber warning zone I fear I may miss out altogether as some models take the snow band just west of me. I will console myself with stupendous pictures of blizzards from places that "never" see snow, such as Wembury this morning!!

Good luck coldies, and commiserations mildies (your thaw will come quickly!!)

Looking serious in scotland:

Snow showers already affecting the area will become heavier and more prolonged later on Wednesday afternoon and at times through the evening and overnight period, with 5 cm of snow falling within an hour in some places and lying snow reaching 20-30 cm and possibly 40 cm in a few places by mid morning on Thursday. Strong easterly winds will lead to significant drifting of lying snow.
