Some sleety wet snow now. 🙂 First bit of actual wintry weather I’ve seen this Winter so far.

can't agree with first PS!, unless uppers support snow, let's have it dry

Do you ever shower or bathe mate? You seem to be particularly against harmless water droplets falling from the sky! 

Just playing! 😁

2018 was VERY dry and should winter continue in this vein then we will be struggling big time in summer with a drought on our hands, there will be plenty wishing for rain then! Overall though, it's nothing to do with that. Endless dry days with no actual WEATHER grew boring in about...June! So let's have some active weather if we can't get snow in - the weather is after all, what we are all on this forum for!

Good health to you mate.

did you used to be called Summer Sun? I know, we all like different weather types, mine is dry, all year round, but if temps support snow, then dry is boring agree there

No mate - I only post during the winter times, but a few faces will remember me! To jog your memory, I live in Rugeley! You may remember me under my old username, Radders.  I was only playing in fairness, I just want some weather to chase - endless days of dry and still weather do nothing for me, I find summer painfully boring unless we have big storms to play with. None of that this year!

I can see @MattStoke is still around - does @Staffordshire still post?

I know, was just a SS style post, SS posted in media thread from bbc weather, not great really, not much snow for our area, according to that

because of the change to our winters over last 20 years or so, I actually prefer Summer, not keen on rain, Atlantic air, bit of frost, then more rain

Looks like we’re a bit too far East as everything has been skirting past us to the West all day but hopefully that will change as the night progresses. 

 

That band of precipitation coming up from the SW may actually go over us giving a few surprises.

All we've had in the last 2 days is loads of nasty cold rain, it's funny looking at the  Netweather radar how the red and green turns to blue as soon as it reaches Shropshire, except over the highest parts, then goes back to red and green further east. It's not like we're dodging all the heavy stuff here either, it just won't turn wintry. Snowline seems to be 200m lower everywhere else.

To be honest we did very well last winter, and I'd rather have it dry and frosty than get loads of non-sticking stuff (especially if other places nearby get a covering)- but 18th January and still no snow this winter quarter.

So I went to bed last night with big flakes coming down and a good covering although a little slushy in places to then wake up to.....

you guessed it a completely wet floor with no evidence at all of snow lol and a doom n gloom model discussion

Just over 10cm of lying snow here with the snow yesterday evening much heavier ( at times ) than forecast and not dying out until the early hours.

Yh not a good day so far weather wise. At least it can only get better now. Tuesday looks like a decent chance.

Onto Tuesday for the next chance of snow then. Possible backedge snow from a frontal system coming in from the north west. Then wintry showers following in a north west flow.

Lots of dodging of toys being thrown in the MOD thread today yet we're not even in February yet; and down in the far south (Poole) last March we had two snow events in March (each had ice days too). Winter is far from over. Plenty of time still for us all to see some snow.

Simple fact is....some people are bloody impatient and behave like spoilt brats when things don't turn out how the way they want it to. The weather is going to do whatever it bloody well wishes and will always be one step ahead of humanity!..

welcome to the modern Eera, not like when I was a bairn!

good I've seen some snow, white over for around 30 minutes, not bad effort for 2019, Tue to Thur next week chances too, then milder from the west, then back to snow chasing in FI
