    Severe weather now into the South-west. And on cue the Met Office site crashes ...

    This could be a torrid 36 hours for parts of south-western Britain. It's all very well thinking it's fun, but this will quickly turn life threatening. When people will almost certainly die from this I find it remarkable how blasé the Met Office have been in issuing a Red warning for the South-west. How often do these life-threatening conditions affect these isles? Once in a decade at best.

    Incredible conditions imminent ...

    The red warning really should be extended , not sure why it covers such a small area.

    No problem @Climate_Eyes starting to get a little heavier now just south of you. 

    Cheers, brain is fried from too many late nights radar watching. :crazy:

    Ooh, great stuff. Quite icy/snizzley here again which is still awesome, but hinders adding to the depth. Mustn't grumble though!

    To put this into context - for most areas that are excited about being in the yellow ( see my radar )

    the red is X6 the PPN rates of the yellow !

    Amazing- they should really have some sort of warning

    I'm not doubting it. I'm not having a wobble.  But I can see lots of people getting caught out if this is as bad as the predictions.  Wembury in SW Devon is calm.  Very light snow and the sun is detectable through thin cloud on occasions. No wind to talk of.  Maybe that's unusual looking at other posts, but if it's not, people are going to get caught out.

    Jemma, I am awarding your dog cutest snow poser! That fluff though! :air_kiss:

     

    Sky to my SW has got a bit darker. Maybe a tad too far east.

    I’ve deliberately not had him trimmed so he would stay warm and he had ice balls hanging from his under-belly

    Snowing niceely here following this mornings taster, flakes small at the moment but that looks likely to change very soon :). What areas will likely see a change to freezing rain tonight, is this mainly on the coast or well inland too?

    To get one of those you need to first, stop drinking and second, go to bed. Personally speaking....can't see either happening for me.

    Conditions are getting worse here Steve in Laira -snowing much more heavily and settling but it’s wind which is increasing.

    According to friends Ivybridge is chaotic with blizzards

    BBC News reporter in RED warning Zone Wales recons they are expecting 20cm snow drifts. :rofl:  Anyone reporting on weather needs to study with the MetO for a month or two mandatory.

    Flakes seem to be getting bigger , and coming down harder now. My old stamping grounds of Shipham, and Cheddar look like they're going to get a pasting.

    Here too, it's quite odd. The sun is desperately trying to peek through , but oh boy it's cold and the wind unlike you is swirling the snow around . However what is coming towards me on the netweather radar looks very interesting! 

    Ive fed the birds , the cat is safe and warm , food is in , miss Marple on DVD .im happy lol
