    it's disrupting which is good news and will increase moisture advection northwards and eastwards increasing snowfall risk for central/southern & SE England....The ECM modelled this last night

    That's what I was hoping. :D

    When checking met website put in heingstbury head as opposed to Southbourne beach as the first has 3/4 hours heavy snow where as the other has light snow. To be fair they are about 1/4 of a mile apart??

    I am surprised at the difference betwen here and poole but that's ridiculous for Hengistbury and southbourne.

    I'll stay at work then in that case 

    It's a fast developing situ Karl. AJ seems to think it'll be more widespread across all of this thread's areas.

    Beaufort 3.30 for a few bevvies

    Fabulous. Yes it is a worry I think not being able to get to them. Yes we were surprised the other morning when it went into the double minuses just how toasty they were - almost too warm. Think their natural body regulating temp thing is kicking in. Amazing really. Good luck and keep me posted! Us equines need to look out for each other :).. PS West Dartmoor where abouts are you - I have a horse friend in West Dartmoor too with a huuuge 4 x 4

    You need someone with a 4wd tractor if you can find a friendly farmer, I suspect that if they have livestock they will be dealing with their own problems mind!! It won't be the depth of snow but the drifting that will be the problem with a normal 4x4 where a decent tractor will just plough straight through, got one sat in the drive with snow plough on the front but alas a tad far away me thinks!!

    This snow is just like we had back in '78.  It started steadily with heavy powdery snow blowing around and then just carried on snowing.  Lets hope we get as much as we did then.

    Been light to moderate snow here in Piddlehinton for the best part of an hour, just starting to pep up..

    I have never seen such wispy powdery snow outside the Alps in my life. Incredible. Absolutely incredible

    I just can't quite see how we're (Bristol area) are going to get 10-20cm, we had 4 hours of moderate snow earlier and amounted only 2cm.

    Just don't see it happening, hope I'm wrong and we also get half a metre!

    Us horsey lot are hardcore ? couldn't break their outside buckets this morning and had to use a rock to break them, then pick out the ice with my hands, brutal!! My girls are just outside lydford near the firing ranges and clients horses are between Bridestowe and sourton.

    They do regulate their temperatures so well which is why I haven't rugged the two oldies, even the clipped one got too hot in a 300g so she's in 100g at the moment.  Would you still be able to get to yours?

    I was marooned in Devon (Hemyock) in February 1978. It snowed for 40 hours non-stop with an easterly gale. 20ft-30ft drifts. over 2ft level snow (but it could not be measured due to drifts).  Said to be the worst blizzard of the 20th century for Devon (surpassed by 1891). All roads in Devon were said to be closed. M5 was empty. Princetown cut off for a week. And that was followed within 2 days of its ending with a rapid thaw. 

    Let's hope this one is not as bad.

    The disbelief comes from not having an historic reference to such a phenomenon.
