    The strangest amber rain warning ever - I wonder if we will get a new warning - although I guess there current one covers it. On a  serious note I really feel for those families having to be evacuated around Didsbury and Northenden - if it all turns to snow at least it may delay some water getting into the river courses as God knows there doesn't need to be any more.

    Hi Guys & Girls,  A short message from me while I still have the energy, my Mrs & I are both in our early 40's with asthma, we have made every effort to protect ourselves from from this e

    Shades of Feb 1996' for the NW with the current output - elevation, uppers and frontal / streamer alignment appear in the favour of many eastern areas (e.g. E Cumbria pummelled), but sizeable amounts

    Crewe Station getting an unusually good covering. Pelting it down with 50p size flakes here - 2cm lying and the heaviest probably yet to come after 10pm.

    I'm absolutely incredulous.. quite fascinated at the local differences here. I've seen it before many times to be fair. It's all about the wind direction really. South Wirral and Cheshire has a long wind draw off land.. we don't in northwest and north Wirral.. thats why it's raining and sleeting now, as opposed to snowing.

    The snow was mentioned in the rain warning, but perhaps warranted a separate warning for clarity.

    Yes I think the change to snow has probably saved me from flooding it’s still pretty close.

    Only really applies if there's no rapid thaw, last you want is inches of snowmelt in those rivers.

    Why wasn't any of this forecast? worthy of a yellow from the met office this.

     

    If it goes on as long as netweather forecast was suggestion for my area, should have been red. Speaking of which, does anyone know what time the front should fully clear, considering staying up?

    May end up getting more than the 29th Dec event here locally all be it much wetter snow. How is it in Stoke? ❄️️  Heavy pulses moving northwards up the Welsh border Staffs and Shropshire now.

    If its snowing in Halewood there must be a chance, cant be much lower elevation than Halewood and can't be far away.

     

    EDIT : Just looked though and Halewood is slightly further away from the coast than i thought, went there on work once, its a little bit further away from the Centre of Liverpool than i thought.
