Live Snow Reports – Heavy Snow Right Now + Storm Surge Tomorrow.

The cold arctic blast is certainly living up to it's expectations:

  • Heavy snow in London and the South East corner of England with 2-10cm away from the city centre
  • Thousands evacuate East Coast in preparation for storm surge tomorrow

Snow in London tonight:

The snow right now in the South East of England with places like Kent, Surrey and Greater London seeing several cm's, is expected to ease now, and the attention turns to other risks and severe impacts.



There has also been a lot of snow in Scotland, with blizzard conditions expected in places here overnight.

The storm surge expected tomorrow means thousands have been evacuated on the East Coast. The severe gales bringing the surge will also allow for blizzard conditions in the high ground of Scotland and blustery snow showers down the East Coast tomorrow morning.

Some snow showers will affect Irish Sea Coasts overnight, for example Liverpool bay.

Most inland areas are expected to remain largely dry tonight, although an area of snow may give some light precipitation in land across Northern England towards the early hours, this feature will be more significant on the East Coast with 1-3cm patchy cover in places.

Latest Forecast | Cold Blast late next and growing Snow Risk |

Although this week will start on a relatively mild, windy and unsettled note, a frontal system on Wednesday will dive south introducing a much colder flow on Wednesday night, the colder than average temperatures will last until around the first part of the weekend, after that the forecast becomes uncertain.



Snow Risk: please access your area on our snow risk map, for further information / detail.

Snow Risk in detail: the colder air on Thursday will bring with it snow showers, however these will be confined to Northern and North Western parts, although some precipitation may filter further in land to spoil a mostly dry day for Eastern and Southern areas.

These are the 3 main regions most at risk of #disruption due to snow on Thursday:

Northern Ireland and Ireland: Snow showers will be fairly frequent and widespread here, giving patchy cover of 1-5cm.

Scotland: much of Scotland will see significant snow showers, with disruption likely over higher routes.

North West England and North Wales: these areas are located close to the Irish Sea, which will pick up moisture and desposit heavy snow showers, some areas, even to low ground could see up to 5cm, however the more disruptive snow will be on higher ground.

Elsewhere: for most of the Country, we aren't expecting much snowfall at this stage. There may be some showers making it over the Pennines into North Eastern and Eastern England, however these will be few and far between. On Thursday we expect temporary high ground cover and a few flakes to some lower level areas in the South.

Forecast for the weekend commencing Friday Night 13th January:

Remaining much colder than average with wintry flurries around Coastal areas and an ice risk inland. winds still fairly strong so a significant wind chill factor.

There could be another spell of snow, in the North on Saturday.

Confidence diminishes on Sunday however a slight moderation of the cold is likely into the following week, with a return to frosty and dull weather.

United Kingdom set for Arctic Shot, as first Cold Air of the Winter arrives.

It's been a frustrating winter so far for snow lovers and cold weather geeks, though thankfully those of us whom rely on clear roads, it has been a very giving winter, although there has been a seasonable amount of frost and ice on offer.

The jet stream is going to strengthen over the coming days, meaning much more unsettled, wet and windy conditions are on offer next week. However, from Friday and into next weekend, expect a slight but notable dip in the temperatures, with wintry showers falling around Northern Coasts.

There could be some snowflakes further South to, in any heavier showers next weekend, however any snow here will be temporary and is not expected to pose any travel disruption. The change to colder conditions could also come with some strong, stormy winds in Scotland, the far North of England and Northern Ireland as frequent wintry showers are expected next weekend, between the 12th and 15th of January, signs are it will turn slightly milder during the following week commencing 16th January...

 

Winter Storm Helena Brings Heavy Snow for South East

Named Winter Storm Helena, targeting New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and North and South Carolina states, the storm will intensity in the next few hours to bring heavy and rather unusual snowfall totals of up to 10" across some parts of North Carolina and Virginia *particularly the Virginia/North Carolina border. However a more widespread area including the East Coast and as far South as South Carolina will be affected by milder accumulations.



In the next 12 hours, the storm will intensify, before gradually migrating North Eastwards affecting coastal areas such as Atlanta City and New York City, the storm will eventually dissipate by the later stages of the weekend. TIME OF ALERT: RIGHT NOW UNTIL SUNDAY 7AM.

Here's a map of the worst affected areas from this snow storm:

ALERTS ISSUED FOR MAJOR CHRISTMAS UK STORM

The first cause for concern is the second named storm of the season, Storm Barbara, this storm’s severe weather will affect Northern UK throughout Friday with gusts widely reaching 60-70mph across Scotland, Northern England and Coastal areas of Northern Ireland, however the brunt of this storm will affect North Western Scotland. The strong winds will also extend further South accompanied by heavy rain during Friday afternoon. Significant snow wall fall on Friday night and Saturday (Xmas Eve) in the Scotland above 200 to 300 meters of elevation.

We are however most worried about Sunday’s (Christmas Day’s) impacts from severe weather. See a detailed forecast for your region by using our interactive map:



After a generally cold, breezy day on Saturday with the after affects of Friday’s wind still being felt in the North; another “storm” will arrive on Sunday, this one for Christmas day, bringing more widespread Gales for much of Central and Northern UK and yet again more severe gales, perhaps storm force winds in the far North; much of Central, Northern Scotland and Northern Ireland affected by this storm.
It will also bring widespread heavy rain making for a very miserable Christmas day for most with generally windy conditions which could cause isolated flooding and downed trees across Central and Southern Britain.
The North will again experience the brunt of the stormy weather; with the potential for 100mph (100kmh) wind gusts across Scotland. It must be noted, that this storm could downgrade or upgrade a little, however the risk is high for this severe weather to arrive on Christmas day.

The risks are similar to Friday in the North, and include isolated power outages, downed trees and where heavy rain accompanies, flooding is possible further South as the nasty conditions extend South on Christmas day.

Certainly a very disruptive Christmas is very possible.
