  1. Very confused here, weather for our area showing 12 degrees right through till next weekend here, but then come here and now touting further beast and as cold again, what on earth do you believe. Do I cancel long planned family event for next weekend ?
  2. Are blizzards still a major issue for later in the week and if so where are they going to affect?
  3. Beeb London forecast just said 8/10 degrees by Sat/Sunday, is that likely, seems to go against everything I have read.
  4. Sorry, a bit dim here - BBC forecast and Met office forecast seem to say different things - which forecast shortly take more notice of hearing in mind the BBC's provider? Thanks
  5. At what stage should we be letting friends/family know about this upcoming cold spell, we have elderly parents and a very poorly baby in the family who is in special care 30 miles from home and being visited daily, if this comes off surely transport will be hindered, don't want to worry people unnecessarily but .....
  6. Genuine question here (forgive me a total novice) how do the hpa temperatures translate into what we would see on the ground temperature wise Thanks
  7. Must be one if the few people getting panicked by the amounts of snow currently being suggested on the MOD thread - with elderly relatives who would be housebound and a very premature baby in the family who is a 30 mile round trip in hospital away from home this this snowmagedon would be a total nightmare.
  8. Hope ok to post this in this thread. I am one of the few people on NW who doesn't like snow, mainly due to illness and elderly parents who become housebound when there is snowy /icy weather. Although this period of weather is incredibly interesting I am finding the forecast of significant snow quite worrying - obviously it is very difficult to forecast even when/ if this cold spell will be as cold as thought but at what stage would snowfall he described as significant ?- not to be a party pooper, realise that most here like the cold/snow but it does have it's disadvantages to certain people.
  9. Constant colds, miserable skies and freezing drizzle - just looking forward to Spring now.
  10. TThanks Steve, very informative and helpful, looks as if Wednesday's plans can go ahead.
  11. Can anybody throw any light on any possible snow on Wednesday - trip out arranged which will have to be cancelled if there are any travel issues in our corner.
  12. Just find the mod thread so confusing - same people ramping lorry loads of snow and people following what they say as gospel, with those same people vanishing as soon as the outlook changes to less cold conditions. Rea!ly not easy for anybody new or less knowledgeable to understand particularly as anybody who has an alternative view to deep cold usually gets accused of trolling or told they don't know what they are talking about. Mod thread gets far too emotional which is not helpful for those of us trying to learn which is a shame and very off putting.
  13. All the BBC/MET Office forecasts I have seen are saying a lot milder from Sunday up to Wednesday but MOD forum seems to be saying the reverse - very confused. On a personal note 80 year old father in laws boiler has packed up British Gas next Tuesday - trying to get sorted but bit worrying if I gets any colder.
  14. Looking for Spring now just as it seems that winter is going to make appearance, in the minority here I know but why anybody prefers cold and wintry in March when we could have lovely Spring days is beyond me.
  15. Have to say will be glad of some Spring warmth and the sooner the better. Not sure why people want cold and snow in March ,I would rather be outside than sitting indoors looking at snow through the window.
