  1. Country wide snow event showing again on the GFS for Tuesday. How likely to happen do you all think this is??? ?
  2. Great winter for my neck of the woods. Had several sizeable snow events and must have seen 20 or so days with falling snow. Solid 8/10 winter for me and I too think this will be the start of a run of colder winters. Exciting times ahead ??
  3. Absolutely caking it down here and adding to the accumulations from yesterday. Best winter since 2010 here...
  4. Some heavier precipitation is slowly heading towards the midlands so i’d expect it to be here around 8pm. Links in well with the met office forecast so the heaviest of the snow should be yet to come.
  5. From looking at the radar it looks like the heavier snow starts to kick in around 5pm onwards. Looking good for Birmingham westwards especially. Seems like it should get more intense through the evening and may last till around midnight. But even in the eastern midlands there could be accumulating snow too. Anyone want to make a guess of how much each part of the region will get?
  6. BBC national forecast has snow pushing up all the way to Northern England by Friday night. We will all get a pasting if that’s correct. It’s either sticking to its guns or very slow at updating their graphics...
  7. The latest BBC graphics are still showing the same as they were yesterday, bringing Thursdays low front as far as the central midlands. I think even the West Midlands could see a good covering from this as it seems to linger around for several hours. , Then it goes onto show the Synoptics for Friday once again bringing the snow front through the Midlands:
  8. The low eventually gets all the way to Scotland on this run. Hoping the models settle on this kind of solution which would bring a snow event to our region.
  9. We had about 15 minutes of drizzle and then 45 minutes of moderate snow which sadly didn't settle. Then it stayed cold and dry throughout the day. Tomorrow looks horrible but Sunday may give us occasional snow showers if they blow far enough inland from the Cheshire gap... (GFS is probably overdoing it though)
  10. Ive only been weather model watching for a few years and i've never seen north westerly winds in winter blow widespread -8 across the country like they are doing this year. Look at Sunday night. -8 uppers widespread and even -10 into Scotland from a North Westerly flow.
  11. Anywhere may catch some snow showers on Sunday afternoon as shown on the chart below. North western areas most favored but showers could blow well inland if the wind is strong enough...
  12. So far this winter has probably been the best since 2012/13. Here in the midlands we've had 10 plus occasions of falling snow, massive snow event in early December and it's felt pretty damn cold even though the CET might not do it justice. Not to mention there is an imminent SSW happening which may bring further spells of cold and snow into the rest of February and maybe into March? What does everyone else think of this winter so far???
  13. Had a small dusting of snow here in Birmingham. The radar looks quiet now for the next couple of hours but the next band of light snow is slowly heading southwards from Yorkshire. The BBC weather graphics show the precipitation right back over us at 6pm so could be a little more to come later...
