    Its flipping cold out there in the wind today, I managed to last a total of about 25 minutes having a walk around the field before it got too cold and I made my way back home for a warm cuppa. Easily -12'c facing Eastwards with a consistent gale and light snow-pellets hitting my face whilst feeling like sharp needles, its certainly not a day to be out on the higher moors unprepared for it.

    Complete bust here in W Manchester but completely expected.

    It is why I never get excited about Easterlies  for the NW as we need embedded troughs in strong flow to benefit which are as rare as hens teeth.

    The real kick in the teeth is that we very likely won't get any snow from attempted breakdowns from the West, just a slow mixing out of the cold uppers and remaining cold at the surface until rain finally moves in.

    Maybe I shouldn't have got out of bed today 🤐

    Even here it’s been a very poor showing after tonight it’s gonna be dry but bone chillingly cold -10 Wednesday night 🥶

    I am surprised at how poor the shower activity has been just to sporadic.

    and yeah there will be no breakdown for us

    Well its 0ºC here now currently; I made the stupid decision to try and train in the garage whilst I've still got sinusitis and I've had such an immense nose bleed I've covered myself, the garage floor, the freezer, my bench and the driveway with blood 🤣

     

    I think a few more days off training might be a good idea 🤬🤨

     

    Back on track; can see grey clouds looming in the distance and heading this way; that wind is still spritely!

    For those south of the region I might be wrong but there looks to be a streamer of sorts developing N of Sheffield east towards Hull moving westwards. Peak District/ North/mid Cheshire/ Greater Manchester East and South of the city might be in for a few more showers if it sets up shop and maintains intensity. There’s some beefy looking ones in a line around Scunthorpe currently. It’s going to be a radar watch kind of evening ❄️🤞😊

    Showers have just not been heavy and persistent enough today.  It's certainly had a wintry feel with bitter wind chill and falling light snow but it's only stuck to grassy areas nothing on the roads.  Not sure the script is going to change drastically until the next phase of wintry weather.  Oh well at least it's not raging mild south westerlies with copious amounts of rain.

    At least the wind will dry the land out

    I think there is slow drift southwards with these "streamers", they were to the north of Scunthorpe about an hour ago. Its hard to tell because its individual cells

    Our best shot for a decent event is Saturday.. but even then , if we do get a covering , it will be washed away shortly after. but ill take that over nothing.

      Calm start to the week, but Autumn Equinox ushers in gales for the north later in the week

      High pressure builds in across the south first half of this week, bringing fine & dry weather for most. But from mid-week, a strong jet stream arriving will introduce windier and more unsettled conditions in the north, with risk of gales Thursday. Read the full update here
