Recommended Posts

A very gusty morning from the SE with hazy sun and all manner of mid to high level cloud types. Out working it feels like a stand off between winter and spring.

This photo was meant to be with my previous post! Snow clinging onto the Westbury side of Salisbury Plain. Also shows the various cloud types well.

There were still some snow piles on the small roads between Bradford and Corsham at the weekend.

good afternoon gang ,There certainly is potential for Snow this weekend ,over many years of weather watching ,in this sort of set up forecasters wont stick their necks out too far because fronts etc can evolve very quickly in deep cold air .Already today Warnings have gone out for variouse parts of the country ,and although at the moment we are just outside the warning areas There could be a big shift tomorrow , Fax charts ,curtain twitching Radar and Lamp post watching on the menu again folks .Now food ,hot crispy sausages in bread with brown sauce ,crackly belly pork ,breast lamb stuffed, with chips BUT i do have a healthy day three times a week with veg fruit and some protean ,as i promised my Late wife back in November that i would look after myself .No one to tell me off now if i make the curtains dirty when Twitching ,well gang evening charts are on the way , best of luck to all that like the magical snow ,:cold::yahoo:.

If the flow remains as is with some of the models then we should do quite well again albeit this time a different type of snow than previously, the wetter type which damages trees and power lines as it did in the channel Islands a few years back...........

Even at my advanced years im going to do an Open University course during the Summer,this will get me ready for Model Discussion next Winter,you  need to be very knowledgeable in the areas of sniping,backbiting,post reporting,ignore button use,if your lecturer feels you are adapt at all of these skills,whilst having limited knowledge of the weather,you get an Advanced Clueless Diploma,which allows you into various forums of this kind.

Looking at tonight's radar...some very heavy echoes in Cornwall atm. Is that a squall line extending through Truro southward or just a heavy shower band?

I did their short course on meteorology through their future learn site. Was really interesting but I'm still out of my depth over there, though there are definitely people who use 50 words where one will do

Looks like a squall line embedded within the main rain band, in which case its probably marking the position of the cold front.

This rain seems to be moving very very slowly ,as not moved much north east  from my location  north somerset ,for several hours now ,so expect some locations will see high totals ,probably the high pressure dropping  down from the Arctic which is influencing todays Front .Interesting weekend coming up ,and IF the Dice falls right for our area we could pick up some Snowfall , cheers all .

Temp  managed to get to 10.6 °C in a gusty South-easterly wind. It's just started to rain, and the wind has increased slightly.

Looking at stations around here it looks like we’re getting towards about half of that  at around 20mm now, very wet out there

Cab see why if you've been stuck under the rain that arrived here a couple of hours ago as it's not exactly light rain.

I think the Met nailed their warning to be honest, we’ve been under the rain since about 12 I think and we’re just on the edge of it for a good few hours, places to the west of me have been sat under the heavy rain all day so they must be saturated!
