Snow/blizzard and sunshine spot over Penwith. They were not joking when they said "more of this to come". The snowfall clouds are so patchy that one minute we are in the sun and the snow on the rooves is thawing, and the next minute we are in a freezing blizzard.
2nd December Snowfall early this morning has left us with a couple of inches of snow everywhere.
Tuesday 29th November, more snow fall. We haven't had very much snow up here but further North and East you can see the fields are covered. Where the snow is landing over the sea it looks like a white mist.
Saturday 27th November, dawn in the east, St. Michael's Mount, panning around to Marazion, Longrock, Penzance with views to Gulval, Heamoor, and towards the north coast.
After the first hail and snow of the year we have a beautiful sunrise. Already the snow is sliding off the roofs in clumps. This was just one minute of a beautiful sunrise. I filmed 6 other clips of 1 minute leading up to when the sun finally creeps up between the clouds, spilling through like liquid gold.
Beautifully quiet. Every now and then there is a thud as the snow slips off of the roof and hits the tarpaulin outside.
It is definitely turned to snow now, getting heavier with large flakes, as your eyes get accustomed to the poor light it does become apparent! While I was videoing this a very cold wind got up. If anyone watching this can get this information to Radio Cornwall for their traffic news etc., it is likely that the roads at the top of Newlyn will be very icy and covered in snow.
5 in the morning and another hailshower, almost snow. This is just random view from bedroom window to back door as light shows up snow falling quite well. While video is running some snow built up on the window ledge falls off onto the tarpaulein. NB folks, beware snow slipping off steeply angled rooves, trees etc.. Radio Cornwall are in the tag because on Wednesday they were warning over and over again that snow was coming. Looking down on Penzance Alverton Heamoor out to Marazion there are no flashing lights of any gritters. We shall see what the roads are like.
As the hail is stopping. Looks like it could be a good base for some decent snow. Despite there being numerous warnings on the radio (Radio Cornwall even) we have not seen any gritters/salters on the roads in the last few days! Don't tell me, cuts!
The hailstorm got quite heavy.
