    Ladies and gentlemen you are not going to believe it. After a wait of almost 3 years... 😮  

    I don't suppose I have anything to complain about this winter...      .      

    I've waited years to get a picture of the house covered with snow.  Finally!

    The fickle nature of wet baws. It’s currently 2.3c here with 80% humidity = wet baw temperature of +0.5c. It could snow all night but wouldn’t accumulate. Let’s assume humidity stays around 80%. What I need is the air temperature to drop to 1.7c or below = wet baw temperature below 0c.

    A 0.6c fall in temperature. Not too much to ask, surely? 🤞☺️

    It has been snowing for about 3 hours here, unfortunately very light flurries and nothing on the ground.

    Have you tried clicking the 'choose files' thing? (I'm old too but that's how I do it.)

    Min -0.7C

    Currently -0.2C, had several 5 minute bursts of dry powdery snow overnight. No real accumulations though.

    Will it be an ice day?

    It must be fizzling out between you and where I am. Had a graupel shower about 1 and aside from the occasional flurry blown in the wind that’s it.

    Temp sticking at -0.1c! If nothing else we might scrape our first ice day of the season!

    Thank you Hairy Celt👍 I hate the start of cold spells from the east when on the coast or near enough,it takes a good 3 days to get the conditions right for any real accumulation while you see inland parts not that far away get plenty and still we are not properly 1.8c now and rising dps roll on the proper cold air  do dropped again was -2c an hour ago now it's -5c ,is this the shallow nature of the airmass flow?

    Good for you! Keep up the good work and then enjoy the game.

    Would the team consensus be that it's a tad early for the snow chains?

    Thought so...

    Is that a Land rover Defender? If so, I've never seen one fitted with snow chains, even on the farms higher up. Those machines are pretty much unstoppable in snow.

    Nice colour by the way 👌

    Gotta say I’m really liking the look of the radar at the moment! Those showers are beefing up.

    Should be getting heavier tomorrow through to Wednesday with lower thicknesses and I'd imagine that'll be enough for it to accumulate

    I always put them back to rain radar just to check how heavy they might be, the snow radar I have to say is a bit too deceiving for snow in general lots of false signals etc I take it it's the met that supply it to the site?

    Very heavy showers becoming more frequent. Radar is definitely getting that look about it.. could be a very interesting 48 hours ahead for many.

    The thing with snow is that it blows! So, it can end up some way (sometimes miles!) from where it was when the radar detected it by the time it reaches the ground. 

    And sometimes it never gets to the ground,still see windfarm locations when it snows

    This.

    It is not uncommon (but is rather magical) in winter to have reasonably heavy snow "falling" from a clear starry sky
