South West and Central Southern England Regional Weather Discussion 03/03/2018 Onwards


Recommended Posts

About 2cm here (apart from on paths/roads that are a bit warm) which looks quite pretty. 

Didn't sleep too well and probably got 3-4 hours, despite/because I was thinking that I should sleep to recharge for today. Could have slept this morning, but I've been reading the forum and watching that band make painfully slow progress towards here lol.

It had better get here soon though, hazy sun here with the temp up to +0.3C (not forecast) and the snow is starting to melt off some cars etc. Finally seems to be a bit more movement on it.

BINGO!    Full House.....  ;-)   Oh my goodness, my giddy aunt What is this, spring with a new slant? I said I didn't want you, go away snow But I'm here again, eyes all aglow

To help pass the time, lets play a game....Netweather South West Thread Bingo.....no prizes for the winner apart from the accolade of being a bit of a smarty pants

tapering off now......an awesome batch of snow, much more than forecasted & modelled here!.....I don't think there'll be any surprises here today for this neck of the woods so eyes down to Dorset, Cornwall & for my family down in Brixham, Torbay...a dumping there is imminent!

Snowing very heavy here with much larger flakes.
Settling nicely on top of last nights.

See this morning's forecasts have more snow later this evening.

Morning all, back from a 2 1/2 hr round trip to bath to get my wife into work as she is a ward manager at the RUH, I have to say my expectations have been surpassed, really heavy snow and at least 4-5 inches

This is unbelievable for mid March.

We have around 10-15cm, it's still snowing and some more to come.

It's also currently -1.5c at 9am in mid March

Unbelievable

Think it could be game over soon for us on the isle of Wight.

 

More like 'game paused' (until this evening) - but not without a heavier burst beforehand judging by what's approaching you from the SE.

Also, I'd not be surprised to see a few showers on and off for the rest of the day, so even the 'pause' my not be absolute.

Morning update: 13 hours of continuous snow in my corner of Wiltshire since 7pm last night has left a covering of 12-15cm everywhere!  Definitely more than the main event two weeks ago and that wasn't too shabby either.  Will have to go for a walk and take some pics as it looks amazing out there!

Going out in it soon to take the dog for a walk, probably pop to Sainsburys to get some bread and milk:D

Just done a check on the snow And it’s in between real powdery stuff and slightly moist, so snowman ⛄️ building shouldn’t be an issue. Arsenè mark II will soon be underway ?

Just realising how much melt a bit of weak sun and the temp reaching +0.3C has caused to my delicate 2cm. A shame really as that's a potential (going by the forecast) ice day gone.

Ah well, best make the most of today and hope the next lot is heavy enough to overcome any warmth that added to the ground :D

Thinks it's time the snow gods turn on that switch....snow should start to intensify and become more widespread for areas west of the band.

I gave in to the dogs, couldn't take anymore of their 'let me at it' looks through the doors. Table ruler measures 12cm, add on the non measuring bit at the end and it's closer to 13, still coming down well but much smaller, finer flakes now. Learnt two lessons in the process of taking these.....1st, don't have a ciggie in your mouth whilst raising the camera to take a pic...it's really not good! 2nd, the pop outside crocs kept by the backdoor are NOT suitable footware in 5inches of snow. No fool like an old fool eh.

7-8cm level 12cm drifts, i prefer this over last time because it has settled evenly all over the ground. Also this time the snow must be wetter because it has stuck to all the cars and trees, like a winter wonderland.

It's up to 1.5c here now.  Starting to cloud over to the East, so hopefully that will cap the rise. I'm going insane looking at that meteociel radar.  It's looking more promising than Round 1 and it just has to traverse the South Hams peninsula now.  I'm nervous about snow/rain boundary.
