met office warnings For tomorrow for Scotland and NW England, extending to Yorkshire. NW Scotlant in particular looks awful with blizzard conditions.

I'm not quite sure about the warnings for England, I'm going to be really interested to see how they pan out. Tuesday scattered sleet and snow showers for many.

Bright sunshine a minute ago, now dark skies and hail! and snow!

A bit of snow here (North Yorkshire), but nothing much. Its pretty much gone now though. According to Met Office it might snow a bit this aft, but its due to rain later.

South Herts
There was ice on my Wheely bin this morning. But still sunny and very cold wind.

North Staffs - snow just hit here. Massive flakes, and it is really swirly because the wind is still so bad. Doesn't look to be settling so far <crosses fingers>

Crumbs. It's coming down like billio here. Whatever billio is like.

Sheffield has had loads today-woke to about 3 inches. Stopped for a couple of hours and now back on with a vengeance.

mankyscotslass Tue 05-Feb-13 14:36:54

Started again here about 2ish, still going now, but not as heavy. It's starting to lie again now though.

Snowing here, Leics, quite hard. Will now be doing the anxious foot shuffling wait of anxiousness till DS2 gets home in his taxi. His school is quite a way away. I really felt the temperature drop quite suddenly too.

Hope it doesn't linger too long.

WhispersOfWickedness Tue 05-Feb-13 15:31:27

Woah, where did this snow come from?! I diligently checked my met office app before I left the house to pick DS up from preschool and it just said cloudy until rain this evening confused Got to preschool and it started snowing big fat flakes and is still going half an hour later confused

StillSlightlyCrumpled Tue 05-Feb-13 15:36:54

Actually forget that. I think the sudden drop in temperature was because I hadn't shut the back door properly after letting the dog our blushhmmgrin.

WhispersOfWickedness Tue 05-Feb-13 15:40:46

grin At crumpled

Well, I just checked again, this is definitely rain according to the met office hmm I never knew rain could make everything look so white!

Oodsigma Tue 05-Feb-13 16:15:49

Met office spot on here. Sleet at 12 pm exactly as the funeral cars arrived hmm

I wonder if its a case of evaporative cooling WoW. If heavy rain or snow falls into dry air it can cool the air down as it evaporates. This can take the air to below zero and make it snow when all other factors reckon it should be rain.

ood sad

Snowing in south midlands, weather forecast was rain.

It was really sunny this morning! And only the wind was cold iyswim.

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 05-Feb-13 16:32:03

Any yet here I've got a washing line full dry and been admiring my new snowdrops peeking out (was a bit worried about them as I'd moved them last spring)

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 05-Feb-13 16:32:36

mind you, the wind is bitter and the heating was broke at work....

WhispersOfWickedness Tue 05-Feb-13 17:18:24

sad Ood

Really interesting explanation, Kitten, thank you smile
It seems to have stopped now smile But we are supposed to have more 'rain' later, could this fall as snow too?confused

digerd Tue 05-Feb-13 17:26:17

I did my washing yesterday late afternoon and hung it on curtain rails and my picture rail and some radiators in rooms other than where I sit. I don't have anything that needs ironing <grin,smug face>.
Really cold NE wind .
+4 here atm. Just looked at the sky, but as dark don't know if it is blue sky still. Humidity out says only 65% so relatively dry - when cloudy is always 80%.
South Herts. Fearing a below freezing temp tonight unless it clouds over

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 05-Feb-13 17:26:38

It might do, but looking at reports a right old mix is falling!

LottieJenkins Tue 05-Feb-13 18:05:43

The snow is bucketing down here in North Suffolk! There was nothing at 5pm and now the whole garden and path is covered!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 05-Feb-13 18:18:11

oooo, now thats a bit unexpected (at least by me Lottie!!)

Sparklingbrook Tue 05-Feb-13 18:38:06

OYBBK, I have had two texts now saying 'snow tomorrow' but that can't be right. confused I am sure Worcestershire isn't due any is it?

digerd Tue 05-Feb-13 18:39:01

South Herts
It'd been raining, I just noticed. So at least the night temp will be milder. So why was my humidity saying 65%% - now 69% ?? That's weird.

digerd Tue 05-Feb-13 18:51:02

ps unless skies clear or it turns to snow in the night. Put my heating up at 6pm as was too cold.

redwellybluewelly Tue 05-Feb-13 18:58:40

Bat Shit Crazy Snow now here - got a good two inches in Norwich - started at approx 4.30pm as I was walking back from the shop and it stopped about half an hour ago

bloody hate snow nothing on any of my weather websites and surprised by the size of the flakes, they were huge! (Had some on Saturday too btw but didn't stick around about 2pm)
