    North East has seen it's biggest fall since Sunderland dropped into League One. 

    8:30 Monday morning..... Colleague - "good weekend?"  Me - "aye not bad" Colleague - "what you do" Me - "watched a weather radar for 16 hours" Colleague - "wtf is wrong with y

    Well I spent the last week convincing my dad it was definitely happening, it was going to be proper snow. He’s spent today taking the mick out of me.  He’s just sent me this he wrote 🙄   F

    Dare I tempt fate and say things are picking up a bit, snow showers moving west from Newcastle and retaining some of their snow as they cross the Pennines into Penrith, got a nice covering of dry snow now. Not much, but beggers and all that.

    Line of showers up wind as well so looking OK, have you seen those big boys just off the coast of Tyneside? I think Newcastle will be the spot tonight.

    Yes the showers appear to be holding more intensity west side of Pennines, we have just missed out on a rash to our south.. we've been very poorly placed today, hoping tomorrow will be better. Wednesday morning looking potentially very good with more of  NE flow.

    Tomorrow night in to Wednesday could be our time to shine, keep the faith! I've just been for a final trip to the bins and actually quite pleased with the accumulation managed over the last 6 hours.

    New day same rubbish, last nights activity quickly died out and now as before we have 3 areas of snow showers.

    One across Southern Scotland, Edinburgh doing well 

    Second across the South of Northern England, Sheffield doing well

    Third large area from The Wash to the Midlands, Birmingham doing well

    some lines of snow in other places as well 

    However, From the NE to Cumbria it’s a snow desert, Radar is clear

    ” Shields Holding At 90% Captain”

    For a very cold easterly like this one the current distribution of showers is a new one on me.

    Plenty on the radar though a bit of luck needed, hopefully the sun will help aid creation of the fluffier type as the graupel is a bit meh

    No new snow overnight, very dissapointing and doesn't look like we are going to get much today. Hoping that overnight into tomorrow saves this cold spell for here.

     

    Was fully expecting a decent covering by this point but only have around an inch. Better than nothing I suppose.

    Not even an a mm here. The slightest of dustings which will be gone as soon as the sun comes up. Very disappointing indeed. Models are backing away from a continuation of the cold too.

    Maybe another cm overnight and looking at the radar that was probably from about an hour ago, was expecting more than that,

    And the latest model output is meh. So the next few days is probably what winter has left to offer.

    Another rubbish night. The reason people are disappointed is the way it was suggested this was a true beast from the east.  I will never again fall for the hysterical forecasts in the MOD thread. I'll stick to the metoffice forecasts and that's about it. 

     

    Lockdown, covid, the rubbish year we've all had, and this was something to look forward to. A few measly showers kicking  about in the North Sea but not even worth talking about. 

     

    People can say tomorrow may deliver goods but a few hours of snow that will melt by the weekend (if it even snows) isn't a beast from the east. Its been the biggest let down in recent years this cold spell. 

     

    Anyway enough of me being negative I've had me say. See what others get over the next few days but stay safe everyone and enjoy what you do get.

    Agree P-M,

     

    Really thought this cold spell would deliver the good for us but it’s almost finished and we’ve had nothing to write home about. 
     

    Just popped over into the Scottish thread and someone has reported 19cm! Don’t even think we have managed more than a cm!

    I’m forgetting yesterday happened because it was naff 😂

    Got a slight covering here this morning but nothing major. Tonight and Wednesday especially look better with a better wind direction. Uppers and dew point are colder today so hopefully less melt in the middle of the day
