    Something for you snow starved Cornish members to grasp straws at.

    Mainly because it is not likely to happen and if it does, it is likely to be cold rain! 🤪 🤣

    It won't be rain (should it happen) but your other point is probable.

    The model does show a streamer setting up over Southern Cornwall tomorrow.  You never know!

    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!

    Off topic but do you mean these? I’ve noticed them recently too, have tried Googling but can’t find anything. Anyone else know?👽👽👽

    All of the ppn seemingly heading over me is simply fizzling out and producing very light snizzle. It's just too weak. Hopefully see some more organised bands overnight and into tomorrow.

    The BBC app continues with the weather porn that never happens. Judging by that we'd have a good few inches here by the morning but I bet we'll have nothing. The little tease.

    It's the same in the Summer, with every shower being a thunderstorm.

    My advice would be to bin it. Not really sure why it's allowed on the app stores, as a weather app.

    🤞 As our patients down these parts certainly deserves at least one descent snow fall. If you couldn't tell, fatigue has set in for me!  🤯🤣

    I probably live about 20-30 miles outside of that zone lol 

    Is this the channel low that's tracked south or a steamer ?

    Not overly familiar with this guy, aside from the fact he's the local ITV weather presenter for my region (ITV's version of Ian F), but this is their version of events through this week (ITV's forecasts are provided by the Met Office);

    Fair enough mate, you lot down there very rarely get lucky in winter but at least you get some of the best weather in the summer, along with some of the best beaches to enjoy it on.  👍👍

    Not surprised to see this given wind direction and strength tomorrow you could get it coming in off the sea.

    I am in the darker green area of that too. MO app shows nothing (obviously, never seems to get snow right) but realistically, will it happen? Hmmm....

    The app does seem to still think that I'll be getting snow from 6am Thursday until 6am Friday though!

    It's a streamer that this particular model is forecasting for southern Cornwall, pretty much on/off all day tomorrow;

    Very localised, but should you be lucky enough to be under it, you could get a decent covering.

    yes, that's what that "A" shape is. Runways so you can take off/land in all directions. Sometimes they're old wartime airfields rather than current ones.

    It was touched on yesterday, but I'm really interested to know what brought that epic dumping in January 2010 to our parts? (The dumping which was suggesting 40cm for Southampton, it was lowered to around 15-20cm though).

    Thinking back that far, it feels as if this was quite an evolving situation but for the life of me, I cannot remember what the forecasts or models were showing for this. None of the historic threads in the model forum go back that far either.

    I'm just clutching at straws really, what do we need for a similar event? Was it a channel low that pushed a touch further north and ran across the southern quadrant?

    It'll be an old RAF airfield.

    Beka was talking about this triangle on the radar returns, to my East.

    It's a shadow from the radar site at Dean Hill. It means we can never see what's coming from the East in these set ups. It doesn't usually matter, as what's coming is generally nothing.

    I was in Locks Heath then. Brilliant event that was - had to abandon my car in Bursledon tesco and walk the rest of the way home from work.

    It's an almost stationary decaying upper warm front.

    It doesn't seem to be decaying much, given the increase in size and intensity throughout the day so far?

    Summer sun has just posted the meto outlook going into March and it still looks generally cold with possible snowy breakdown attempts for the region all the way through. It's worth taking a look.

    That's the one, we had another event later on in January but it was that one early on which was newsworthy.

    We had cars dumped absolutely everywhere, no one could move. Going by that, it looks to have been a forecast front so not an 'unexpected' event as such.

    What I'd give for something similar!

    If I recall correctly that it was a decaying cold front from the north that somehow developed a low pressure system along its line as it moved slowly south and as it hit the south coast it started circulating moisture from the Channel back northwards into the flow so it kept it going from around 4pm throughout most of the night. We were in an almost unprecedented red warning zone 24-48 hours beforehand (I thought it had to be some sort of error) and was the heaviest fall/accumulation of snow we had here this century.
