    Cloud heights also starting to increase now. Clearly backed up by the radar intensifying south of the IOW

    Can anyone answer this, how has this easterly delivered snow less than 24 hours after arrived whereas the last easterly didn't deliver anything meaningful for 3 days?

    Lack of moisture and forcing (via a front or trough). Storm Emma was the spark that was needed

    Because the low delivering the moisture and warmth this time, arrived sooner. The beast got the cold flow in for quite a time before storm Emma embraced him.

    Doing my head in waiting for the heavier snow, it's dragging it's heels lol. At this rate it'll arrive 6am.

    Hop across the channel, its over here, nice size snowflakes,  certainly bigger than with  beast 1 the other week.

    OK that makes sense, but this time round wasn't there a cap on convection at quite a low level?

    No - I looked at the radar this morning from East Anglia northwards and was very surprised. I'd be very interested for some of the experienced members to pick the bones out of the last few weeks.

    I'm trying to bank my analysis of these last few weeks for when easterlies of this potency arrive again*. For me the scenario remains the same, get the cold air in place and watch with fascination at what unfolds afterwards, Very hard for any model to accurately predict what will happen.

    Not studied the skew-T .. but I find those difficult anyway. A moderate cap wouldn't change things, would it?

    Here in Keynsham, we've been stuck on the edge of the heavier snow all day, a covering of dandruff here whereas areas slightly south and west have been blanketed, not again.

    Hi everyone, snowing moderately here which is starting to lay. Really enjoyed the humorous posts tonight too, it's cheered me up as I have shingles for the second time so far this year and you've all helped to make me feel better along with the snow ?

    I don't have that option, I've been warned by the missus no alarms so I have no choice.

    There is a cap at the mid layers, preventing instability over the UK. You can tell as there is no lightning activity in the showers over Northern areas which happens with North Sea convection in cold spells.

    The cap for us is preventing any heavy precipitation levels in the band
