    Hello Guys & Girls, First of all I just want to say a huge thank you to all of you for all the messages of support and the PM's you sent me, you are an ok bunch aren't you! So, thank you.

    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

    stopped now here.

    We literally went straight through that narrow band with two beefy bits either side. So unlucky

    Snowing again, looks very wintry...not causing too many issues at my level but higher ground to the east might be getting a decent covering

    think the next bit of steamer will just miss here to the south but can’t complain

    Wine poured - check

    Dry spell over - check

    snowing again! i hope there is no gap this time so the melting stops 🙂

    After a walk in the snow it seemed like a good idea to open a bottle of mulled wine.

    I’d forgot how discussing it was so the missus has the bottle all to herself and I’ll open a bottle of red instead😀

    Yes but below 270ft you need heavy stuff it seems

    Even the lightest stuff was snow here. It’s dropped the temps down too.

    Sounds like a good shout, mulled wine seems to sound good at the tome.

    Im on the red as well while peaking out the blinds.

    Lost some intensity by the looks of the radar and my snow has melted so back to square one.

    Big gaps opening up now in the streamer now. Will any heavy stuff reach here I wonder or is the die out starting?

    Doesn't look very good now, mainly light showers.

    The streamer seems to be breaking up a bit now as it hits the Pennines but hopefully it will have enough energy to make it over to this side.

    Yep, other streamer starting to die out. The one that’s just gone over came at a bad time really. Nothing was still frozen. It just needed to wait another hour or two to freeze again 😞 all melted. Back to square one.

    Didn't last long here as band had really narrowed. However, can't complain as we have seen snow falling 4 days out of the last 6. I suspect the East of the region may do quite well overnight, but probably just scraps in the West.

    Any one explain why no shower activity further north of Northumberland, everything seems to be starting south of Newcastle?

    We have about a couple of cm here so nothing noteworthy. Radar looks promising in North Yorkshire hopefully this can move SW wards.

    Yeah it’s strange that.

    the narrow band just south of the Tyne looks pretty intense as it heads in across County Durham.

    I might just have a drive up to Barnard Castle to see if the opticians is open😂

    Pfft. Band will be dead by the time it hits Manchester. 
     

    Coming from the Irish Sea the showers have no issues reaching the East coast. They come from the East and the Pennines just destroy them
