Default Met Office "Invent" Large scale, detailed, radar

We are lucky, living near Exeter, to be included in one of only 3
areas made available to the public of their large scale radar. It is
presently really interesting for me to watch this band of, hopefully
snow, not rain, approach Dawlish.

It's worth noting that you can see a much larger area around London than
you would think particularly if you head north as the precipitation can be
seen as far as the North Sea in Yorkshire. I ahven't looked at the other
areas.

Light snow started bang on cue, but the detail afforded by the radar
allows me to see the band of quite heavy snow breaking up nicely as it
approached Dawlish after crossing the higher ground to the north. Very
interesting, but a tad disappointing!

Thanks for the link. V useful as I'm on the extreme NE edge of the
London map, (just NW of Ingatestone). Like you, I've found it very
accurate as that W-E band of snow, just north of London, moved in,
with the intensity on the radar matching exactly my experiences here
on the ground.

Snow continuous since 07.00. Light earlier, now moderate.
Accumulation around 10cm. Temp rose to 0.6C at 10.45 from an
overnight low of -1.0 but now dropping again and currently 0.1C

From the look of the latest forecast for this area, we're in for an
interesting afternoon, perhaps?

Wow - 10cm there Tom? Good news as I like to walk and bird watch at Warley
Place which is high and to my NW so should be at least 5cm. Only 3cm here
as has been mostly light today and thawing slightly. I blame this radar as I
am 1 mile off the eastern edge!
