Thanks.

    SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 07/11/2018

    Some back edge snow for some on the radar.
  3. Detail still to be ironed out reg snow potential next week, And I wouldn't trust any runs hemispherically past day 5 currently.. Nice to see -17c surface temps for the highlands though!
  4. As the cold front moves through S/E Sunday some pretty high winds to be expected especially for West S/W coastal regions. Snow showers for some especially over high ground continuing into the new week with some hard frosts especially under any clearing sky's and cold days under a brisk wind.

    Snow on the Scottish Mountains.

    Some sad news.. https://www.facebook.com/groups/snowpatchesscotland/permalink/981968862003165/ Some very sad news today. Dr Adam Watson passed away peacefully this morning. Not only a snow patch legend, but the person most responsible for our understanding of so much in Scotland's uplands. His daughter Jenny wanted people to know. From a personal perspective, I owe him a debt of gratitude that I'll never be able to repay. An inspirational man.

    A thin covering of snow here that's just fallen.
  7. A wintry run this morning for next week, Lows swinging further South so snow chances will be a plenty, Even for the South!
  8. Just Models please, No Meto extended chat in here that's for another thread. Thanks.
  9. Thought I would open a thread to observe and follow the cold PM shot over the next few days. Yellow Meto warnings are already out for snow and ice, And the models show plenty of snow showers packing in behind into tomorrow and Wednesday. The Radar will be a must.. Good luck all.

    Yes during recent Easterlys all the snow just blows away and fills the lanes here. I have always favoured a PM flow.

    Yes Flash is not to far from me and have worked there numerous times on Farms, Some odd folk though.. As you say we could have snow showers Tue/Wed/Thu. Radar watching at the ready!

    Yellow warnings out now for snow and ice. I do think the details will change somewhat and be updated nearer the time.. A band of rain and hill snow will move southeastwards across the UK during Monday evening and overnight. A brief spell of wet snow is possible on high ground of southern Scotland, northern England and north Wales, with some small accumulations possible. Behind this surface temperatures will rapidly fall away with some ice forming on some surfaces. Once the rain has cleared, some hail, sleet and snow showers will follow from the northwest, with 1-3 cm above 200 metres and some small accumulations expected at lower levels.

    Plenty of small villages/Hamlets round here with pub B&B which do much better than Buxton due to alt and colder temps, Agree it's the highest town, Take a look at Flash for instance.. No idea if the Cat Fiddle has a new landlord yet as they do B&B.

    Yes it's looking good tonight into tomo, I will prob stop up late tonight to see how it arrives here..Would not surprise me if Meto out a yellow warning.
  21. GFSP showing a cold PM blast Mon/Tue next week, With -9/-10 uppers over the majority of the UK and possible widespread snowfall. GFS making it more a Northerly flow.. Certainly a wintry outlook looking at the models this morning with temps mainly keeping below avg.
  22. Yes agree, Here are the 850's certainly altitude makes all the difference. Early days yet for tiny changes but with a -7 wind chill we shall see..
