    I was about to attempt to get some sleep until I looked at the radar and saw a heavy blob heading towards me. Now I’m waiting for that to arrive instead.

    Still not sticking to concrete or road surfaces. I should imagine they'll be fine by dawn.

    Looking at the radar I think we made tonight's sweet spot. It's pivoting through just North of Bristol. Elly, Jay and me are gonna do well!! :D

    Sod it, I'm just going to stay up now. Not sure if this is a local thing but we've had quite heavy snow for the past few hours even though we were down for light.

    Not sure what is supposed to happen but Cornwall aren't getting much right now, though, are in an Amber warning. Either there is another twist to this or we have a shift in the forecasted system.

    The snow moving west is supposed to stall over that area and then slowly move south meaning the area in the sw has the heavy stuff for longer.

    Thanks. But they've got some catching up to do if they're to get ahead of our stalled snow pivot.

    Trying to hold a phone still for 30 seconds is quite tricky.

    • Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
