    Looks like a potential streamer developing for Newcastle shortly after 1 pm

    Well this is very underwhelming really the showers that do come to darlo whizz through in a few minutes and deposit tiny amounts that melt away as soon as the sun comes out. We've probably had two beefy showers since 7am the rest not even worth mentioning. All this melt and lack of showers with -12 uppers in place. Really poor fare.

    People's expectations are too high, those sort of events are once a decade if not rarer events. 

     

    Checks calendar 2 years 11 months - nope not a decade 🙂 

     

    People forgetting there was a million relatively lame easterlies like this one between 2010 and 2016 - and presumably beyond (I moved in 2016) 

    Lame is how I'd call this.  However expectations are high because the synoptic evolution was and is far from lame.  The synoptics for the NH are something beyond once in a decade currently. I think that's why people were expecting a bit more. 

     

    But as people have said its early days. A lot can happen between now and Friday.

    😂😂 I'm actually usually the opposite but I think after this latest lockdown and getting over covid for a second time  I was excited to see some of the white stuff.  

    I promise to give me head a wobble and be more positive this afternoon.  

    Keep the faith! Just back from walking the dergs and had 2 very heavy mini blizzards, fantastic! You mentioned walking the dog then getting back to watch the radar, I watch the radar then try and get out when snow is more likely, greatest walking weather, snow and temps freezing or below.

    I'm sure most will see some more heavy squalls this week and who knows, maybe a reload after a little breather))

    If this does continue to be such a poor affair, I think we need seriously to reevaluate our amateur-enthusiast dismissal of what forecasts show leading up to an event.

    You'll probably find that the sun has that little bit more strength now and even if temp was sub zero all day if sun shone snow would melt a bit. Still lovely to be out in, not long back from my walk and at one point was watching a heavy snow shower come in from the coast and the land in the distance was disappearing but facing the sun I could feel a bit wrmth on my face, magical!

    Just the pickup to get rid of lockdown blues))

    That's a good point. MetOffice have changed their outlook for me to light showers from Heavy Snow right through to Wednesday evening, so a big downgrade from them. NetWeather are forecasting the odd light shower (under 0.5mm each 3 hours) tomorrow morning then nothing tomorrrow night and Wednesday. We're told to ignore these due to convection. I'd love for them to be wrong but my money is on the multi-million pound systems sadly. I'd love to be wrong though.

    The latest forecast video from the met office is a lot better than the BBC one

    I was worried that snow showers over the North East wouldn’t make it to Cumbria.

    I need not have worried as there aren’t any showers in the North East!

    Had about the same snow this morning as Darlington which is not a lot.

    Remembering back to Feb 2005 which brought a long draw easterly later in the month but uppers were not cold. I was in the NE then, lots of snow showers but we had lots of melt.

    It's not a Feb 18, uppers not as cold, and no trough feature as yet.

    It is the lack of trough features which is making what looks great on paper a more underwhelming experience so far for many.

    As I'm sat gawping at the radar I think I might be able to see the first signs of two possible streamers setting up. I think another member mentioned it earlier. One for Newcastle area and one further south, possible teesside. Can anyone else confirm this? 

    North East snow beat me to it lol

    It just goes to show that forecasting is really difficult even with supercomputing. I thought this was going to be like 2018 a little, but no. I do think my area will get a little more these coming weeks.....but it's always 2 hrs away, then 6 hrs. On a plus side my colleagues have been digging cars and trucks out on the A66 and I'm on rest days. That's the only thing keeping me smiling today.

     Possible.  Just depends on if they develop or decline before they make land.  Showers seem to be doing both

    I tend to be very wary when forecasters completely downplay an event. Since Saturday we've talked about the low, lack of troughs, high cloud... maybe they saw this and we didn't back on Friday/Saturday.

    That look promising.   Why didnt the BBC pick up on these troughs.  I only watched the forecast 20 minutes ago
