    Looks like the icon has dropped the ppn on Tuesday further south on this run. Funny as alluded earlier the MO app (even those apps aren't much cop) persisting with snow for South Devon. All eyes Thursday. Chance of an ice day locally too on Tuesday. All good stuff.

    Surprised the council didn't replace the street light at the front, and all the others down the road... yet, they are lovely ambers.

    A few new LED ones have cropped up in the area though, and it's looking a bit out of picture so guess they'll do the rest when they find a few quid (easy...)

    Meanwhile, snow rain edging in now, temp 2.9°C

    If you’re feeling annoyed about our potential we still have next Friday/sat snow event!  for some reason metoffice app is showing snow for 6 hours on Tuesday but most models take it into the sea?

    Yeah there's one down on the walk to Downton, the village down. In the dark it's hard to tell whether it's car headlights or what...

    I'm sure there will be many features popping up out of the blue this week!

    Exactly. Worse things happen at Dancing Ledge..

    Incidentally, the 18Z UKV is quite a downgrade even in the Southeast. I hope it doesn't, because that would be gutting after the hysteria that has developed.

    Massively encouraged by the Met’s amber warning no less. Not that it needed that to produce the hysteria that has been going on.

    I’ve kept out of the MOD or MAD thread as it’s known these past couple of days as it just got too much in there. I feel for you moderators having the job of trying to keep order in there.

    Just have to be patient. Can't expect the white stuff right at the very start of the cold spell. When the deep cold is entrenched snow could pop up anywhere! Let's hope everyone gets some.

    The main thing is we are actually getting the cold in place now, with the next stage being where and when it's going to snow, which could well be a nowcasting event!

    I'm very encouraged this evening looking at the westward progression of that low tonight. We could get some surprises this week for sure. Feels very cold out there this evening already.

    Yes it's far more west and far more precip attached. It's a long way out from what was expected and timings are wrong too.

    Drizzle now after a dry day. Currently 4.4°C although it feels colder than that. It's also rising slowly at the moment although that shouldn't go on for much longer.

    I’m wondering if it’s heavy enough we might get evaporated cooling which may change it over quicker.

    Yes that's quite possible for sure! Already signs its turning to snow quite low down the country already.

    North Devon has snow forecast on the bbc and met now for the middle of the week - which is an improvement from an entirely dry outlook yesterday.

    I can see east and North Dorset getting some snow of this tonight now. Wouldn't surprise me at all. In fact looking at the westward progression that's showing tonight and the fact that wind will be picking up I can see some surprises heading much further west than precip models are showing this week. I'm confident were see something at some stage now.
