Recommended Posts

At 200 metres on the south west slopes of the moor and it's still raining. Just got back from Princetown at 450 metres where it is snowing

Think so also mate, we hit the sweet spot again? Yate it getting pretty lucky lately. We have waited a hell of a long time though. 90s was soooo bad.

90s was soooo bad.

Tell me about it - I remember Spirals 🤣

@Stormygirl welcome to the madness and the friendliest place on earth 😄

Cheers zephyr. Got all the radars open and 101 tabs keeping an eye on progress while also doing my tax returns. 😲Luckily my desk is by the window so can see what’s going on. Think I have covered all angles. 🤪

It's good!! South Devon it will aid snow but could more generally up the snow totals for the south west.

Still just rain here on South Dartmoor. It's taking it's time, doesn't the weather realise we're all holding our breath? 🤯🤯

I think it means a pepping up of the precipitation and more likelihood of a more prolonged spell. But I'm sure Karlos will clarify that?

Simply based on the recent changes to Exeters' forecast conditions at the met office site (i.e later and snowier instead of sleet), i assume the system is stalling and pivoting further SW than expected a few hours ago?

Mesolow

(or Sub-synoptic Low) - A mesoscale low-pressure center. Severe weather potential often increases in the area near and just ahead of a mesolow. Mesolow should not be confused with mesocyclone, which is a storm-scale phenomenon.

Temperature and dew point still rising here (3.1°C 1.1°C respectively), I am gathering this will drop soon?

Bugger, snow might even struggle to make it up here....elevation is seemingly the only thing going for me on the edge of the marlborough downs

Temp stable at 2.3°c, dew point -0.2°c, should be a good place to start once the PPN arrives!

Is that a bit like thundersnow but with potential to be longer lasting? Or am I just full of wishful thinking?

Just like Brexit, it is still coming, and even a Corbyn government cannot stop either from happening.

Would be nice, we had some thundersnow in 2004 or around that time, can't really remember but I think it just means increased precip in and around it

Indeed. No snow is better than bad snow... 😬

As long as AJ and the rest of us all get our beer and kebabs all will be well in good ole Blighty. I just feel sorry for the farmers trying to farm kebabs in these inclement conditions, a hard packed cover of six inches of snow does them no good at all.

Absolutely filthy weather in Salcombe! 😀

Very gusty cold winds beginning to blow from more of a SE direction. Rain pepping up as well. Not pleasant out there at all. Cold rain + wind, lovely!

We may get a little snow later on this afternoon but not expecting anything significant to be honest.

Temp here has been hovering around 3.5C for a while but dew point has plummeted to -1.6 now.

BBC has Southampton down for 12 hours of snow from 6pm to 6am, all looking pretty positive I think but until snow starts falling I'll be nervous.

Saw a big snow plow being prepped on the industrial estate at work earlier, I take that as a good sign!

Gone 1.30pm and it still hasn't started ppn in Exeter. It's dark and windy but no ppn just yet. So surely that's slower than expected?

System is definitly pivoting earlier! I would suggest anyone traveling home from work might want to leave earlier as I think this will turn to snow quicker and hit during rush hour.

Difference is under a Corbyn Govt. I wouldn't be surprised to see any snowfall taxed per cm.
