    Why do people keep mentioning streamers when we've had nothing close to one. I think it's time people woke up a little in here. People are circling small showers on the radar then are getting disappointed. 

    I'm not saying there isn't potential, but some common sense would help. 

    Exactly. Those are not streamers

    Hopefully the winds are due to start moving more to a NE direction this evening around 7-8pm

    Oh well, the whole of Tyneside sitting in a huge gap between bulky looking showers, as has been the case for 36 hrs but seems to be changing.......to a bigger !!??"*%\#ing gap! My 2cm outside is shrinking and have clear skies almost to the horizon in the North to East quarter, the Tyneside Gap is growing!

    Do you ever do well out of the so called battleground events Damian ?

    Yes we do depending on line of attack. A SE draw of air ahead of the front is required and preferably a negative aligned trough which then stalls in situ, as happened in early Feb 96. 

    We often see heavy snow from active positively aligned warm fronts moving into cold air, but the snow will quickly thaw once the front moves through. Much prefer rain to snow events  but we more often see snow to rain events.

    Last Feb we had our only decent snow when a front moved in to reldtivfly cold air on 24th, about 3 inches but all gone by mid afternoon!

    Lovely sunny day today, bit chilly but managed to get the grass cut.

    Might sit out with a glass of wine later if the sun stays out.

    Lovely 😠

    Look! North Cumbria is the only sunny place of Europe.

    Now where is that Cork screw?

    I've been through the fine mesh models and this is when each of the models believe the Border streamer will shift it's attention to us snow starved people.

    ICON-EU 2am Wednesday

    OK, so zooming out and looking at the radar (bad move), am I right in thinking that the heavy showers that are piling and have been piling into Dundee/Edinburgh/etc are basically what we thought we'd get?

    So there seems to be fairly good agreement that it WILL pay a visit, just when is up for debate. Fingers crossed we can go out with a big bang, because the last 3 days have been disappointing to say the least.

    One guess as to which will be proved right. There's a subtle clue in the formatting.

    Can't say that I'm not a little disappointed in the shower activity in darlo so far today. Apart from our great one this morning about 7.30am there has really been nothing of note. Roofs are all pretty much snowless now but the roads and pavements still well covered. Here's hoping for an uptick in activity soon.

    It's times like this when you look around the street and start to realise how much your house is losing heat through the roof, mine has none on but across the road the house which is empty is still covered in snow.

    Must say though that it was 3 degrees here earlier, no ice days.

    Plenty of heavy snow showers all morning here in Newton Aycliffe, good covering now too. 😁❄️

    Was in Seaburn this morning, proper bitter in that wind with a couple of hail/snow showers.

    A690 and on to A1 at Durham, got caught in a big hail then snow shower.

    I appreciate that some aren't getting much, but there plenty around the NE at the moment.
