More snow risk?

The jet stream remains below the UK throughout, at least, today and tomorrow and this means that we will see a continuation of the northerly climate dominating.  Overnight we have had some further light snow fall in Hammerwich and today … Continue reading

Any more snow?

The air pressure is beginning to rise slowly and with it so is the air temperature.  The air temperature at 1.5km is also warmer than that for perfect snow conditions.  We can, therefore expect to see any precipitation today to … Continue reading

Match on or off?

After a very light fall of overnight snow we are greeted with a partly bright but cool day.  I would expect that a lot of the junior and non league local football matches will require a pitch inspection and could possibly … Continue reading

Time to find your big coat.

At the time of observation (approximately 06:30 hours) the stars were shining through a thin veil of cloud although some light rain had fallen earlier.  This is a taster of what is in store for the rest of day. It … Continue reading

Another day starts off with a stiff breeze blowing.  We should be becoming accustomed to this kind of weather now but it certainly makes travelling for many precarious.  Drivers of high sided vehicles should take particular note of any local weather … Continue reading
