Sorry guys. My mums still in a really bad way. I just wanted to post to quickly say tonight in my opinin is being underestimated. The trend today has been to keep the front as all snow

Around 50cm has fallen across the highest parts of the North York Moors yesterday. Went for a walk this morning at Newgate Bank. Around 30cm of fresh powdery snow underfoot and quite difficult to

Last one from me, great day...just stopped now so 11 hours of snow 👍👏👏 Hope those that missed out get some soon 🤞👍

    So can anyone with more technical knowledge than me explain why this front hasn't moved south as modelled. What's kept it there all day? I'm kinda self teaching myself meteorology so any input much appreciated 😊

    It has to some degree, early on the boundary was diaganol from just north of York and Leeds, it's now flattened to more of a straight east-west but with precipitation angled SW-NE while moving west in the front.

    What the models got wrong was the pace and the main vorcity area but nowcasting has always been advised on the day.

     

    Think of our front like an old gentle curved bridge. Early on we were on the left side, now we are towards the middle.

    Looks good, but is anything actually coming out of the sky?  I’m supposedly under the light precip but nothing falling... 🤷🏼‍♂️🙄

    We now have light sleet!  Maybe with a bit more intensity we might get cooling and snow!

    It is for settling. Struggling on anything but cars below 100m.

    Wow what a day! Haven’t seen snow like that since I was a kid. Seems to be getting lighter now but that’s a good 8 hours of heavy snow, some of the flakes at times were huge 👍

    Well done north and west yorkshire youve made a mockery of the met warnings.

    Just goes to show how hard it is even with all todays upgraded models to forecast snow!

    P!ss poor warnings from the meto as usual. 

    When it became clear late morning that this was going to be a significant event for certain areas a orange warning should have been released for Harrogate and surrounding areas. 

    Exactly. It was obvious since midnight that the front was moving in a very slow pace. Around 9am it almost stalled over North Yorkshire and they should have issued an update and a warning upgrade. The result was several car accidents, whole Harrogate area has left and right cars stucked and 22cm of snow. I don't expect METO to provide exact depth of snow like the US one (I understand it's more difficult to track systems in the UK) but it makes them look more inconsistent when half an hour ago they came with an updated forecast of more 3-7cm.

    Thank for the reply. Everydays a school day on this forum 👍. It's actually started snowing here funnily enough.
