    To be fair to NK, If someone said it snowed in Wareham, it would be considered faker news than being illegal to drive in a red warning zone.

    I didnt know it was fake news. it sounded quite logical to me to be fair.

    Snowing steadily I'd say in Taunton , and you can see ho the wind whips it up into mini swirls and deposits it elsewhere. 

    Really cant get over how cold it is . The heating gone off and in minutes you notice it's effect . :cold:

    My place of work is officially closed now and possibly for tomorrow as well.

    Nothing to worry about. It'll still get here. :)

    It shows that the cold air is more stubborn than the models initially thought.

    Anyone got any thoughts about Gloucestershire later? Latest BBC forecast didn’t look so good here. Damn, lived in Somerset for 6 years and only saw a bit of snow twice! Looks like the place to be..

    It's been pretty reliable this week for my location. It changes all the time but they get it roughly right.

    I've discovered 510 horses through the rear wheels makes for a rather hairy journey to work in these conditions :D

    Think I may bottle it and take the work van home back to Weymouth once we abandon ship here (hopefully) later on today!

    Forecast for the whole of Devon to be covered in snow later apart from a tiny patch above barnstaple and braunton. Anyone know what's going on there?  :)

    I'm late to the party again tis morning.  Horrible when work gets in the way isn't it :)

    Very light snow and calm winds here in SW Devon at the moment. Air temp -4.4c, DP -5.8c, 90% RH.  Hence feeling much colder than yesterday.

    I'm off to scan from page 182 onwards to se what I've missed!

    EARLY MORNING REVIEW

    Good morning and welcome to "Spring" everyone :)  This is an "interim update".  

    The big day is here. I've had my first settling snow since moving down here permanently 3 years ago. Here's a very modest pic. Many who missed out completely so far should have had a little overnight and right now.

                   From Inside   0700                                                   0705

    Before I starting writing part 3 of my report (see part 1 on page 170 and part 2 on page 184 for loads of live charts) I will do a quick round up of current conditions and overnight developments. Most of these charts are at fixed times so that comparisons can be done later in the day but I'll start with the live radar and satellite ones for reference..

    lastsnowradar_uk.gif    lastsnowradar.gif   anim_ir.gif  anim_ir_color.gif

    Before a few of you start panicking, this snow is NOT the main event which "should" develop later this afternoon and into this evening (as forecast yesterday) and we have our own "red" warning from 1500 today. There have been a few misleading local forecasts which seem to have suggested that this is the main event now and push it all through at breakneck speed (wrong!). The Met O seem to have a better handle on this and the BBC may well start to regret dropping their service. The red warning (and the previous amber warning) are totally at odds with the local BBC forecast.

                         0000 GMT                                                       0600 GMT                                            0100 GMT                                                      0500 GMT

    The snow that pushed eastwards and then northwards into France yesterday was quite well ahead of storm Emma. That initial band of snow over France has weakened and dispersed. The "all France" radar does not show the Channel snow properly. What happened was that the leading bands of snow from France moved across the Channel in the small hours and engaged with the remains of the streamer. This has introduced some additional moisture and the band has expanded and "may" become self sustaining and bridge the gap to the main event later today or we may get a lull as it pushes northwards. So look at it as an appertizer before things really wind up later on :)

    Wind Chart Explanations:
    This maps show the average wind in real time recorded by weather stations in France and neighboring countries. The red arrows represent the direction of the wind of the stations, and the white arrows (only on the all France chart) represent the direction of the wind calculated at any point of the map according to that of the stations. The colour represents the average strength of the wind. These are the most recent observations of the present time and not forecasts.

    Brief comments:

    The milder air has made very little northward progress in France during the last 12 hours and the area of southerly winds is still confined to the south west of Biscay. The deep cold over us is still in place and today will see some March lowest max temp records broken.The Scandi HP has only declined slightly and remains in situ (for now), maintaining the block, holding off the northward progress of the LP. The flow has veered slightly more towards the east-south-east overnight with east-south-easterly to easterly winds continuing and strengthening. The Met O fax shows the "ghost" warm front ahead of the other fronts. This is only upper level less cold air climbing well over the surface cold - I discussed this in previous posts and will pick up on it in part 3 of my main report later this morning. Prepare to be snowed in :D   David

    Due to the way Meteoalarm works.. it cannot split local areas up when it comes to warnings, so if a red warning is issued for Devon and Cornwall, it shows for the whole Southwest and so it shows up on my website too. Quite a sight  to behold!

    AMG.

    Trying not to be (too) stupid in it but this morning an empty work carpark and falling snow equates to doughnuts in my book.
