    The Mendips might just scrape into that zone. Fingers crossed.

    You've missed out the  other three info-graphic's that went with that tweet. They separated them to make it easier to understand.

    Work have decided to send us home, although I live a 10 minute bike ride away! It's all good!

    Anyhow, that wind is incredibly raw and with the light snow now sticking to everything and blowing around, it looks like I'm somewhere in Scandinavia, not Bristol!

    Now this is where those of us on the eastern fringe need a bit of luck. Heavier bursts in the channel will produce a good fall here in Portsmouth by 3pm ... if they can keep their current intensity. Come on!!!

    Steve drew big blue lines to indicate the direction of travel. Try looking at it through the bottom of a wine glass....

    Thought I would join in with you mad snow geeks!?

    Only moved to Bournemouth a year ago & didnt expect to has snow so soon in the tropics!

    Wife went away to Fuerverentura yesterday. I have the pleasure of renovating the spare bedroom, would have been so gutted to have missed any snow. So a little sweeteer for me! ?.
