    I haven't even ventured into the Mod thread so far this season after 'mild gate' (late last January) when I dared to mention a few times that the ecm model at days 9/10 were trending to bring in mild conditions on a few runs and as 99% in there were looking for increasing cold on the back of the BBC/MetO and was it the European or Glosea monthly updates?...I was vilified by a few regular posters and one's I never heard of (whom I won't mention) even to type mild at the time and at that timescale.

    Needless to say in true Alan Partridge style I wasn't wrong and 'had the last laugh' and yes be careful what you say in that thread if you dare to post just make sure it's what the majority want to hear.

    Dunstable got a good snow cover but melted in the afternoon. Hills around the area did ok. I drove to the highest point in the Chiltrens to have my snow fix. Some photos from Wendover Wood this mornin

    Shower cloud lit up nicely by the low sun earlier this evening north of Heathrow where I work.

    Nice bit of snow here this morning, so that means it won’t go down as one of the worst winters I can remember but only by the skin of its teeth . Photos below ?

    Radar showing some sleet in parts of East anglia anyone confirm that? 

    I'd be surprised, temperatures are going up here...8.5c currently.

    Should i let them know that the October Fog Index says no, put them all out of their misery. They might as well close that thread until the storm season as I just had a look in there and the trend is no longer our friend and winter is over.......AGAIN

    A couple places in some parts of East anglia are a few degrees colder than that but I suspect that wintriness was on high ground.

    Sure its not heavier rain, if the weather type is off, on the netweather radar, the brighter the colours the heavier the rain

    I think that's on the basis of Judah Cohen's tweet or whatever his name is...if I had a pound for every time he's been wrong as well! ?

    I know that? No I specifically switched to precipitation type and the green indicated sleet really shouldn't be surprising given a chilly air mass.??

    After a wet afternoon, heavy snow here in Prague now with surfaces quickly going white! October/November Fog Index accurate as had plenty of dense fogs in the last few weeks.

    When I got in the car after work it had an ice warning on it which is the first one this year for me it was sitting at the 3 degrees. I then went food shopping and by around 18.30 the temperature had shot up to 9. I’m keeping an eye on the weather for Thursday and the weather warning that we have. I’m so fed up with this wet weather now. We were lucky to have two dry remembrance services once on Sunday and again yesterday.

    It was that yucky wet snow that I dislike but was great to see the huge flakes and so many of them!

    Didn't actually feel quite as cold today.  Saw some places in Ireland and Okehampton have got some snow.

    It’s unlikely to be strictly sleet as such; I believe the ‘sleet’ colour can also be shown in place of graupel, ice pellets, hail, and even just cold rain in some circumstances (despite the fact that a separate colour exists for hail as well). It’s just how the radar chooses to compute what is falling, and can be influenced by factors such as elevation ASL, dew point, etc.

    I wonder exactly how it determines it?
