East Anglia and North London weather discussion (25/02/2018) onward


Recommended Posts

So whats occurring tonight/tomorrow then for Norfolk? In the sun the snow has melted here today but in the shade it's still over you shoes. Main roads are clear and dry, side roads damp/slushy.

Will we get any more snow now?

Hope it's ok to share some pictures I took whilst out around our little village this morning   I won't bore you with them all, but here's a few of my favourites  

Late Feb sun is strong, but i didn't think it was strong enough to melt roads

The thaw not very far away now. An'interesting winter indeed...and coming now to conclusion. Its been emotional and at times frustrating. Over and out. See ya-all november...ish.

Convection is sharpening for this evening -and indeed overnight.

You get the feeling .....the starters to the main meal...thursday!!!!

Still fancy that disturbance in the flow to head east over our region

Certainly more stirring out in the North Sea at the moment by the looks of it some oranges and yellows reappearing.

Hard to tell but seem destined for Kent at the moment?

Something about this location. Even when heavy showers approach they split up to the north and south and then join after they pass by. I noticed this over the years. I can't figure out why though. Cursed area

I agree, Ive noticed this with storms as well as snow showers!!!

That could well be quite fruitful for the likes of EA and my part of the world - charts certainly show good precipitation potential over the next 16-20 hours 

About time huh ? I'm further west than you in St Neots. It's high time we were in the firing line

Yeah would be better for whoever gets anything as they will hold any accumulation overnight. Looks like midnight onwards could see a fair bit somewhere if that's to be believed.

Agreed! I have to be honest though, it is a bit of a long shot. There's a high probability we won't do well at all until that main system comes in on Friday. Just being realistic 

Best advise is to keep radar watching but the signs are it's not exactly going to be a snow fest for our parts - it'll just be about getting lucky..

Wind's backing more to the north - I'm taking it as a good sign of what this evening and night might bring.?:yahoo:

Nice shower now Pete, getting you too?

The wind has seemingly turned more to an easterly looking at the cloud direction here, which bodes very well for a Thames Streamer (Tickler) to set-up. That shower that just went through appeared out of nowhere, so convection is good.  Could be an interesting night ahead.

My my this sun is strong.

This area is really bereft of much cloud let alone showers over the last 2 days....any reasons?

Cambridge got hit with a couple of hefty snow showers yesterday but other than that it has been a primarily drier sector. 

From memory - easterlies have NEVER favoured these locations highlighted, particularly the more western parts of this zone. For the eastern parts you'd need a solid North/North Easterly to tap into the streamers. When I saw the charts leading up to this cold spell I knew it would be a bit of an uphill struggle as there just wasn't that much in the way of organised activity - the one I did have hope for was last night but this ended up shifting much further North so our county (Cambs) didn't benefit at all. 

The classic conclusion for this kind of cold set up is a big 'finale' dump prior to the mild intrusion - which is Friday night. That'll give the kids most of Saturday morning to play in the snow (forecast 3-6cm) before the onset of the big thaw !
