    Hi mate, it appears you've magically had 4" fall in just one spot. Are you Uri Geller?

    4 inch, I wish, to be fair the grass has had a bit more, but only 1cm accumulated on the damp surfaces

    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

    Well this is pretty rubbish right now. I'm on 5am start at work in Durham city so we will see what I wake up to. Metoffice website has me down for heavy snow from 11pm until 6am then light snow all tomorrow. BBC heavy snow from midnight. And when BBC don't know what to do they just copy and paste the previous days lol

    Sorry but this is rubbish. There is actually less activity between the Northumberland streamer and the Teesside streamer (not that either of them are very good) than an hour ago.

    I've noticed people keep pushing this back... now it's "nah, it was never due to get going until Monday". Sat pm... then Sunday... then  Sunday evening/night... I'm spotting a pattern.

    I think for me the synoptics we need are slowly but surely developing which is why I remain hopeful, granted it is taking longer than I anticipated to get there. However, there's still a good 72 hours before the pattern is due to change which is still plenty of time to deliver the goods.

    Can't deny it's rubbish right now. I think I'm going to have a whiskey and see what's happens in an hour or so. 

     

    Keep the faith Nick keep the faith 🤣🤣

    Off topic, my daughter introduced me to a 'Godfather Cocktail' this evening, it's simply whisky and amaretto over ice. It's an amazing drink just thought I'd share if you have never tried it 🙂

    I've been quiet today as I was told on Saturday night and this morning when I said it was disappointing and my luck wasn't in that I was being negative and it will come. Tomorrow will be the day. Well tomorrow may never come. 

    The original forecast was for heavy stuff Sat afternoon through to Monday with showers right through the week before a south westerly front hit on Thursday and dumped another few inches. Then it was Saturday night. Then Sunday morning. Then it was 'yeah this morning was always going to be quiet, wait till later'. Now it's showers Mon to Wed and dry after that. 

    If we get a good dumping over the next 48 hours I'll eat my hat, but I can see 2 or 3cm blowing in the wind as all we'll get sadly this week. The jury is out for the rest of this month but it looks to be cold with HP so no snow, but high gas bills. 

    Anyway, I blame myself. I bought a new sledge on Saturday morning for my little one.

    I must admit it I'm surprised but the streamers seem to be failing. They just don't seem to want to get going. The one in Northern Scotland is producing big meaty blobs ours are just more rubbish graupel clouds. I ain't gonna waste another night on this sh%te!! I'm beginning to lose interest in this whole cold spell to be honest.

    That actually sounds canny to be fair and I have both.  In fact I'm going to try it now.... will a pint glass do?

    That's my short of choice. Or an amaretto sour, that is something else. We went to an AI hotel in Crete (remember when you could go abroad) and disarrono was on the menu. I must have put a couple of bottles full back in sours.

    I don't think height makes a difference as the air is so cold, I just imagine you got hit by the PPN more than they did in the Team Valley. 

    Still no real signs of proper convection though, no idea how much on the radar is actually reaching the ground but if you get a heavier burst, it will settle right away. 

    It does make a difference, looking around the Gateshead, Newcastle, north Durham area you could see lower areas had little lying snow.  Earlier today the air wasn’t as cold as it is now.

    That is why when you see weather forecasts they always forecast more snow for higher ground.

    There can be no snow at Gateshead centre but up here we can have a good couple of inches. This is a common occurrence each winter.

    I'm with you. Believe me, I desperately wanted my negativity to be proved unduly pessimistic, rather than realistic, but at the moment... :/

    I was down the team valley earlier too from whickham. Same intensity of shi... Showers as up in Whickham where there's a thin blowy layer, yet it was melting on the valley instantly. It was 1 degree down there and - 1 up at home, so there's definitely something in it.

    there’s nothing to watch other than that too the north-east scotland  which was never sinking south in an easterly flow. the ‘streamers’ are tiny and not beefing up. snooze time.

    Don't lose faith - the North East had what is now in east Lincolnshire - that has now moved south and we are getting slightly heavier showers all be it still graupel - just wait to see what happens.

    I was up there the other day to see the snow,its just under 500 feet asl around there 

    Yes we get a lot more snow than the surrounding areas due to that little bit of height.

    When I quote snow depths I always try to say my location near the QE as often there is very little in Gateshead town centre and people may think you are exaggerating.

    We're the same in Whickham. Whenever I mention people tend to say 'ah near the Metro Centre'. We are, however there's your choice of 3 huge hills to travel up to get here. We're closer in altitude to Stanley. My house is 175m ASL

    Latest radar shows a gap between our sh**te we've got now and what the Scots are getting it has been noticable today that

    this has been drifing slowly south today, the stuff in Scotland is what I was hoping we got today - Anybody know why there is a gap?

    I would like to think we are going to get what the Scots are getting in the next few days coz they look like proper beasty snow showers not the pussys we,ve got now

    The APERGE & GEM 3 hour accumulated rainfall (snowfall) charts are encouraging for Mon afternoon through to Wed morning, APRRGE in particular shows a 24 hour streamer of decent intensity over the North East... a significant improvement from what it showed this morning!

      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.
