    Well I didn't expect tt post in this thread again this season but here goes. I had a week in the mountains, payed little attention to the forecast back home, come back today to the mini beast and snow on the ground and now - more falling snow.

    Interesting developments tonight.The westward progression against the almost stalled fronts coming out of an apparent circulation to the SE of the UK. I really have not had much chance to look at charts or the fax outputs to work out if its the Thames Streamer or frontal stuff from France wrapping around the circulation. Either way, seems as though there will be more of the white stuff for the region.

     

    It will be interesting to see how the band from the East deals with the circulation in the SW and the constant bands stretching across the southwest. Two things could happen.

    The westerly component ceases and the bands from the east either stall, fizzle, or merge with the existing bands. Or, the momentum of the band moving west begins to move it all on.

    Really a nowcast this, time will tell.

    By the time it reaches here, probably another cm or 2 I would imagine.

    MetO Filton forecast is for snow from 7pm until 3am, with it being heavy at 1am and 2am. So I shall have to clear the blooming drive again in the morning. Having mixed feelings about this...............??

    I rolled a huge ball of snow up around the garden earlier. I want to see how long I can hold on to it this week.

    Met Office has been flicking around a bit for me, but it's now saying light snow starting at 8pm, heavy snow at 11, 12 and 1, and light snow again at 2am.
