The Cherbourg dangler

We’ve had around 5 cm of fresh snow this morning here in mid-Devon to add to the 5 cm or so that we got overnight, in a spell of moderate snow that’s now moving away W’NW across Devon. There’s an interesting convergence line that’s pluming a line of showers northwest across the Channel from the Cherbourg peninsula towards Devon. At the moment that looks like it might keep the snow falling in this part of the world for the rest of the afternoon, as the latest models suggest it will. I saw this type of convergence happen in an easterly from Cherbourg that affected Guernsey in the last cold spell, but this is a new direction for me.
