You got wet snow yet Chris? Radar says so, still sleety here but wet snow can't be far off even for an hour or so. 

Plenty of snow showers on the cards tonight early tomorrow.

MO update There is a small chance of a weather system approaching the northwest over the weekend, which could bring significant amounts of snow on meeting the cold air. However, this is still ver

A few pics of the stunning local snowfall

Off we go again with another snow chase. ?

The issue with Cumbria is the huge elevation differences in extremely short areas of the county. You can walk a few miles or less and climb several hundred metres, when talking about snowfall that's the difference between heavy rain and a blizzard on occasions.

I'm back in from a bike ride through the city centre, up to Debdale and back home along the Fallowfield loop. My highest point was 77m according to Strava, more like 30m at home. It's raining everywhere, what differs is what's mixed in. Higher up, there are proper snow flakes,  lower down, more like sleet flakes. There's a thin slushy covering in places that the rain isn't warm enough to melt.

Guys, how long did it rain for before it turned to snow.

 No not yet, still sleet. 2.0°C. Tonight is looking excellent and seems to be upgraded slightly on last few runs again.

Yes - Been there in it all and worn the T-shirt "microclimates" including bailing the tent out in Sunny Seatoller - Marra always unlucky for a (Coastal) Cumbrian

Get up the kirkstone pass. It’s like five minutes in a car and there’s plenty of snow

This point has been regularly made to Barmada Casten, however I think they only count snow that falls in the town centre as a proper snowfall. As someone who lived there a little while, that's a recipe for complete disaster.

Wow!!

Streamers overnight joe?

Need to be very cautious.. but yes.

They don’t kick in until 3am, peaking at 6am and continuing until mid morning potentially. 

The trajectory looks relatively narrow so some places could do very well, others less so. See the image...

This is a real test for this model - I will be extremely impressed if we wake up to snow tomorrow morning. 19013009_2906.gif
