Wahay! I think I'm winning with 1.5 at the moment. If the air stays calm looks like a good chance of a decent frost in the early hours.

edit 1.3 now

Newcastle now down to 2C as well.

Come on you users reading (18 is good), anybody from Newcastle with a report?

Yes you are.

I am actually surprised that Shap is still at 4C and Leeds seems to be doing well compared to the surrounding areas.

Leeds Bradford seems to be stalling or not updating.. the centre of Leeds is at 5c which is pretty good for an urban location.

Good site for airports and official stations.

It's 2.0c now. Very dry air shouldn't help ground frost chances. Temperatures are much more stable now. Hoping for a drop, but becoming less likely. Anything lower than 1c and I would quite pleased.

Going to have a shower in a moment, hopefully some time away from glaring at the ws will help it fall!

EDIT: 2.1c, boo. Bye for a bit.

6.4C. A 1C drop in 30 minutes. Now we're talking! :)
Winter 2012/2013

Snow lying: January: 18th (5-6cm, blowing snow) 19th (3-4cm level) 20th (3-4cm level, slight top up) 21st (5-6cm, proper snow). 25th Jan - (5-6 inches) 26th Jan (a load of slush 3-5cm).
Snow falling: January 18th,19th,20th,21st, 23rd, 25th.
Min temp: -2.1C

12z GEFS suite is very strong on blocking to our N and NE, with an equally strong (if not stronger) signature for block to retrogress towards Greenland in the extended frames as the pv is transferred towards Siberia (which has been a consistent signal now for a few days).

Get set. It's coming.

It has fell to 2.0c again, but it should rise again imo. Should I lay ice against my grass and patio to get a ground frost?!

1.9c, let me turn this frown upside down and say sorry for bothering y'all!


A small variation in temperature, you're probably drawing moisture from the sea, how I don't know, but other people have said that. :lol:

I remember a similar thing last winter, the temperature was fluctuating between -8C and -1C. All in the space of literally minutes, in 5 minutes the temperature could increase by by 5-6C, but then fall right back down again within the space of a few minutes. All due to the breeze being much warmer than the air. The main reason being because the snow was cooling the air considerably only for it to be displaced by a warmer breeze.

6.2C now. Woop :D

Yep - temperatures should generally be stable overnight so it will be 50/50 for me and you to get any ground frost :)

I'm just wondering what is causing temperatures to fall further in some areas then in others.. it seems very mixed across the country right now with no real explanation.

If you would of seen my THREE weather stations reporting the same thing, you wouldn't of believed your eyes. But when you have a foot of snow, clear skies, a VERY STRONG inversion and a breeze of 5mph, it can happen!

The thing I remember most is -8.0C to -1.9C, and that was in 5-6 minutes.

I remember last year when the temp here was falling to about -8/-9c then a breeze would stir and then cause a rise of about 1-2c but it certainly didn't fall back down to -9c within minutes even after the breeze had stopped. I've never known a huge fluctuation and a fall in temp happen within minutes as big as you claim.

Strange place Runcorn ;)
