    Temp rising fast now, was -4.1c half an our ago, now -3.6c

    Really annoying the way the snow prediction charts above have rain for the coast. Still have a bad feeling about this.

    You will probably see snow falling at some stage, but onto already wet ground when the front pushes in. That will be the case in most areas in North Somerset, a wet ground rain/sleet/snow event. Up on the Mendips will be a different story.

    Morning weather fiends. -2.2 here with a dp of -2.9. I still have a feeling about a sleet/rain event imby just too close to the coast.

    Today and tomorrow will be fascinating for a our region in terms of how much snow any of us will see.  The set up is really a near nowcast situation with very small changes in the track of the LP and position of the frontal band being critical.  I'll show the overnight, current and "live" charts (the live charts "should" auto update every 10 minutes - you may need to refresh the page). It's currently -4.5c here and -6c at Exeter airport (0600).

    I hope so Matty. I am in central Bournemouth so only 6m asl and it's tricky to get any decent snow here. Thus set up is a strange one so who knows.

    Thanks David! Those live charts are super helpful.

    It was an ice rink outside last night, but as you can see from the live temps Salcombe is now just above freezing. Wind has also picked up so no scraping required at all this morning!?

    Good luck to everyone today, other parts of Devon and further north or east should have fun!

    That's always been possible, albeit briefly for areas further north in the region.  The further south you area, and lower down nearer the coast (ie Bristol channel coasts), that's more than possible.

    Ian F's forecast from last night really indicates that initially temperatures will not be cold enough for snow, looks pretty wet at first then it will turn to snow later in evening. By then the ground will be wet, so accumulation amounts will be a couple cm at best. Coastal areas in North Somerset probably staying pretty damp and miserable. Up over the hills will be a different story, all round looks a damp wintry mess, for N. Somerset. PPM pretty patchy too.

    edit. as per AWD above.

    I think it will be mostly rain for Weston, other side of the M5 will be all snow. Might be tricky getting out of Bristol later, but  once on the A370 near Backwell should be back into the rain.

    Surely if the front was earlier then it will be cloudy by now but it's not...

    Just for fun, here is a map of where I think, based on yesterday's and this mornings model output and broadbrush trends I've noticed;

    IMG_20190131_072119.thumb.jpg.7c98b65adc7d9fef2049158e24c28410.jpg

     

    Purple area = best area.  This area could see 10cm - 20cm of snowfall, especially over the Brecons.

    Blue areas = I can see a split developing in the heavier PPN, with areas in northern parts of the southern coastal counties doing well, as well as the moors of the SW.  Mendips, across to the Salisbury plain etc, as well as north Dorset.  This area could see 5cm - 10cm of snow, perhaps up to around 12cm on the SW moors.

    Green area = This area, with the exception of West and South Somerset includes most inland areas of the West Country and Hampshire.  Coastal areas along the Bristol channel and extreme southern coastal towns aren't included in this area as I believe, to start with at least, the PPN could be more sleety than snowy here.  Lower areas of this area could see 1cm - 4cm of snowfall, higher areas and rural areas could see 3cm - 7cm.  It's a large area so some local variations may apply based on topographic influences.

    Yellow area = everybody away from southern Cornwall.  Due to the nature of this event, no model or forecast will be 100% right, so anyone in our region is at risk of a dusting of snow at least.  This area is there to cater for that.

    Like I said, just for fun, just my thoughts and opinions right now.
