    Missed out on a proper dusting of snow by about 5 miles last night, just trace amounts to be found this morning.

    Some small flakes whirling about in the wind out there in the past hour, gradually increasing in number.

    The 'Hampshire Triangle of Radar Mystery' is in full effect now. Seems to be something heavier hiding within it. Always keeps me guessing until the last 10 minutes in a NE to ENE flow! 😝

    LOL Good name for it! I can confirm nothing is happening over Winch right now. Anyone know what the triangle is about? Reminds me of a the bermuda triangle!! I'm scared!

    All apps can be misleading as they are purely raw data. Need to look at the percentages as well. On the face of it for here later, visually you’d think this is great. In reality we probably won’t see a single flake.

    Enough to make pavements wet which isnt ideal.

    Pretty much stopped here now but there is still the odd flake coming down. Feeling a bit better after that, seeing as we been very unlucky here on the Island so far this year. Here's 2 from my house, nice little icing sugar dusting 🙂

    Look at the precip intensity picking up. Possible back building there also.

    I've been watching that for the last couple of hours, it literally isn't moving anywhere.  

    Places under that must have a good covering by now.

    With this weather insides the best place to be upon Mendip, remember my Dad telling me that during the winter of 62/3  we were living in Shipham, and that the local authority took over the firm he was working for.  They had to clear snow by hand ,with little mechanical help ,from Longbottom right through to Charterhouse, he said that as fast as they were clearing it ,it was blowing back in .Apparently ,he developed pneumonia as a result .  Remember two  old Priddy blokes telling me years ago, the seasons on Mendip are 6 weeks in front , 6 weeks behind, and an overcoat colder. Having worked  there  during winter on more than one occasion, I can well believe it.

    You've got to be a hardy soul up here that's for sure. And I'm moving higher up the hills to Priddy, got to throw in huge amounts of Mendip murk up there, low lying cloud that shrouds the hill tops.

     

    Quite a heavy graupel shower here at the mo.

    Yes really intensifying over Milton Keynes area. If it can just start moving then we could potentially get some good snow.
