What is latest snow update for Bristol area tonight/tom guys?

Are we on the edge or is it really a Devon/Cornwall affair?

From what I've see  it looks like a downgrade. The amber warning on the MetO warning map has shrunk markedly and faded to yellow. Don't know how much to trust that, but on their video thing, it shows the big snow only for the far SW and the Bristol area isn't anywhere near the yellow warning area. Looking proper pants now. 😢😢 

If someone can give me some hope, I would be grateful. 😩😩

HIRLAM and BBC graphics showed us well in the zone.

I must be looking in the wrong place then. 😕😕 Happy to be proved wrong though. Mind you, I'm not much good at this sort of thing........I'll just sit quietly on the sidelines for a bit. 😰😰😰

Up to 10cm. Not sure why Bristol is not yet in the Amber warning area. BBC show heavy snow all over Bristol for most of the night

Yes i doubt they see a point in moving the zones 20 miles north, south, east or west from run to run. Whole region is under a yellow zone with amber not far from Bristol.

Might update later in night I suppose once event starts but i wouldn't get the Bbq out just yet if your just outside of amber zone. :good:

Met office radar looks to be pepping up the ppn as it's heading west towards the region, that first little wave could well hit some Bristol/glos area:)

It looks very light snow, in comparison with the bright echos to the North and South of us.

I have assumed my position, and have perfect view of the street light from my sofa in the lounge. Bar tender (the boy) on hand to fetch drinks upon request. 

Currently snowing!

Happy as a pig in 💩

I'm watching Wales against France, keeping an eye on Aston villa losing! Curtain open incase snow starts and thinking about a Cardiff city win tomorrow lol.

Really, not sure what site your looking at but just checked the met office weather warnings and the amber zone has expanded and extended all the way down to the tip up Cornwall.
