    Those beefy showers in Scotland don't seem to be moving south anymore now looks like a straight easterly feed, the stuff to our east looks like it did this morning not much to it, infact to my east hardly anything at all 

    From past events, it's always seemed to me that a NE'ly feed is what we need. I can't see that for a few days.

    Trying to keep the hope here.. although rather wishing I hadn’t told my 6 year old it was coming, must have been asked 100 times. 
     

    Fairly new to looking at radar, can anyone tell me what I’m looking for.. at the minute just looking at what’s over us at the moment.

    There is southernly movement in the Scottish band of showers but maybe no more than 25 miles over past 2 hours, at that rate that unstable air would reach Northumberland in about 5 hours.

    Apologies 10 hours not 5.

    As the low pressure, now over NW France, moves away it will allow the unstable air to our north (currently circled in your pic) to move south and allow the north sea to create convective showers which will be pushed in on the easterly wind.

    Edit: misread your post, seems your adding to my point. 

     

    It was an oversimplified picture for someone asking what to look at on the radar, all they needed to know was their looking for the same level of instability off the coast of NE England.

    It’s not then exact showers we are focusing on it’s the conditions that where there to make them. The instability will come its a matter of time

    Indeed, that area seems to have pepped up significantly in the last hour. Hopefully a sign of increased instability and things get going for the region in the next couple of hours.

    Been snowing lightly all day here in Gateshead near the QE hospital. Light covering on all surfaces that is blowing into small drifts in the wind.

    Hoping the shower activity becomes more organised and intense tomorrow.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
