    Really interesting to see the Met Office graphics displaying snow even over the Channel which is more optimistic than the publicly visible models - Euro4 closest.

    Considering the frontal position looks no further south, I figure evaporative cooling must be the defining factor. Models have shortfalls there, some more than others. I remember how much GFS has been laughed at over that in the past - but that was last relevant here way back in 2013; successful events since then have been entirely surface cold driven.

    So tomorrows a different mechanism for widespread snowfall to what we’ve become usd to dealing with, at least locally to me. Makes it harder to construct personal anticipation as to what tomorrow will bring, but seeing the snow line out over the sea in this graphics has made me the most optimistic I’ve been since the event came into view. I’m about 20 miles inland.

    The ones they sale in Lidl once a year are great, you have temp, dew point, pressure and rainfall measurer for about £50 

    EDIT: and wind

    Indeed and a fantastic Chinese chipper to Zephyr 

    The Chinese is the best for miles around. The Frampton Balti doesn't seem as good as when it first started out, but then we get a decent curry at the Raj over here, so haven't been for ages.

    My first weather station was/is from LIDL. Never gone wrong. Also shows pressure history  and forecast (based on that so pinch of salt). Mine doesn't have a rain gauge, though

    You have better chance the further away from the coast you are. You also have 30 metres better altitude.

    Lol, the Met Office predicts in Reading we'll experience 11 hours of snow?, from Thursday 5pm till Friday 3am with 4/11 hours being heavy snow. 

    Anyway's I'm hoping at least the front is a little further south tomorrow as we'll all experience further snow as the front wraps around.
