Recommended Posts

Light snow on and off for the past hour or here, nothing major and not settling yet just a lot of swirling in the breeze. Radar looks good out to the NE maybe things could get going this afternoon as per the MO warnings

Light snow here again now. Fun, isn't it? Beefing up on the radar as well.

Will I get anything done today... working from home is a blessing and a curse.

You still think there's scope for that, BA? Maybe it's the old rose-tinted glasses overegging the severity of winters gone by! It just feels a bit 'wrong' at the moment - maybe it's the lateness of the season and length of the days making it feel more Spring-like than it actually is. Not temp wise but psychologically at least.

 

The shortwave dropping south tomorrow distorts the flow which is a shame 

i wouldn’t discount anything over the next 72 hours

Worth taking note of BA's post, anything could and probably will happen over the next few days. It's still relatively early on, warnings etc don't even kick in till 12 and so many showers weren't forecasted at this point.

For live radar I use netweather but I like using the metoffice one for forecasted precip.

Well looking at the all the forecasts its not looking good for those in NW London at all until the possible snow of Friday which will be right at the end of this cold spell. It seems we are stuck between all the areas where snow showers are to set up today and tomorrow and then the SE wind dries the whole region out due to the short sea track. It really does go to show that 1991 and 1987 must have had something really special going on to cover 90% of our area in deep snow!

What's happened to the Met Office web site? Has it been down long?

  • Showers in the north and west again ahead of a hot end to the week

    A weather front will bring showery rain to western and northern regions today, as those further southeast enjoy warm sunny spells. Heat then starts to build for the end of the week with 35c on the cards in the southeast. Read the full update here

    Heat building - But not before a northwestern soaking

    The weather has thrown up two things to focus on during the coming hours and days. First the rain across the north and especially northwest of the UK, with some heavy, persistent downpours today in western Scotland in particular. Second, the build of heat later this week from the south, with temperatures forecast to rise into the mid-thirties, for some at least, by Friday. Read the full update here
