Not a cloud in the sky. Shame.

Just been out for a walk to the local shops before they shut at 11, crystal clear skies with a bright moon and exceptionally bone dry with a few wafer thin patches of lying snow, lol I've seen frost patches thicker than these!

Off to bed now...just as a few light flakes appear in the breeze and some beefier showers look like they're heading our way.

Good luck, all!

Great to not hear the drip drip drip

Not so great to see zero convection looking east from the Estuary

And where is the wind ?? Clouds are not moving up there

Eerie feel not a sound out there, where has the beast gone or is it purring asleep atm

I do feel this easterly has been so hyped.

Clear skies, no wind. perhaps looks as if some one has burst a bean bag in my garden. 

Does anyone actually remember a proper easterly.

This was hyped as once in 100 yr event. Laughable.

I hope someone somewhere gets a snowdrift.

i don't think it's barely started though? uppers of -17 will be crossing the country in the next 48 hours, I think that's about a once in 20+ year event? Some places will get lots of snow; others less so. but to write it off on the first day seems odd to say the least

Never heard 1 in a 100, I think I heard 1 in 10 or 20 never a 100. 

Possibility is there if a streamer sets up that somewhere gets pasted and this weekend is trending in our favour right now lets hope it continues.

For mid winter it would be a 1 in 20 or 30. This late in winter, well 1 in a 100 isn't unreasonable. 

A few weeks earlier and we would have been looking at 2m temps a good 2 or 3 degrees lower!

It was local radio who Ramped it up as 100 year event.  I do have hope. But  cannot see a countrywide disruption as it stands. 

I cannot remember a good snowfall since we started measuring snow in centimeters. Feet and inches. Those were the days. LOL  Wishing us all to have a heavy duty snowfall.

I see that winds are due to shift back to more of a ENE in the next few hours so showers will starting pushing a bit further in land. We shall wait and see I suppose!

Only in the east could the predicted totals of 10-20cm morph into 0.1 - 0.2cm in such a short space of time :D
