    Couple from earlier, the icy fog has finally started to give way but it deposited a decent bit of rime on most of the trees and vegetation.

    Temp here still at -3.8°C.

    Huge temperature difference, locations not far apart. Inland and coastal.

    Interesting met office app update. The band of ppn whether it be rain sleet or snow lasts barely 3 hours till it's over for this location. No pivot here!

    It's interesting that they are forecasting heavy snow for Lee-On-The-Solent beach yet Alverstoke is sleet despite the Lee location being as close to the coast as you can get. I'm beginning to wonder if this is going to be a now-casting event for our location.

    I think the amber warning is more about the snow falling circa rush hour.

    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.

    "A band of rain will arrive from the southwest on Thursday afternoon, quickly turning to snow and becoming heavy at times. 3 to 7 cm is likely to accumulate quickly - within two to three hours - with up to 10 cm in some places."

    This is going to the wire. Do I believe the Met Office or Lloyds32 ?

    As my post clearly stated, it was what Ian F said last night...Please feel free to view his forecast.

    As he also said, the forecast will homed in TODAY with regards to warnings (as per the Amber) and a more clearer picture. So basically its not what I think, its what Ian F said last and night the Meto text today.
