    #SNOW RISK MAP Here's the first 'Early' Snow Risk Map for Tuesday & Wednesday of this coming week. Expect changes to this, potentially even quite dramatic changes. Area's outside of any zone could still see snow whilst areas within could still see rain! #uksnow


    In other words they’ve no more idea than the rest of us.

    ......and here visiting in Oxenholme fells look great. A few blizzardy showers over toward Wetherlam. 

    We’ve had a few flakes flying about in the wind and the sky looks full of snow but there’s nothing showing on the radar within 100 miles of here.

    i just hope I don’t look back in a weeks time and this was the only snow I ended up getting.

    How nice would it be if for just once the low corrected north instead of south and gave us all a dumping 🙂 Let's hope.

    Problem is there’s more posters down south and every one of them is sucking the system in their direction so unless they all sod off on holiday at the same time it’s heading south😄

  4. It’s always amazed me how small the weather systems are on this side of the Atlantic compared to those that seem to hammer the West coast of the US and Canada every year.

    over here we fight over 50 miles north, south, east and west and one area only seems to benefit at the expense of another but on the other side of the pond a single weather system will dump massive amounts of snow across hundreds of miles at the same time.

    theres probably a scientific reason for it but it’s frustrating when all most of us want is a memorable countywide snow event.

    looks like somewhere in the Midlands may get clobbered on Tuesday. 

    This set up will cut off our showers too ☹️

    TBH this was alway likely to be the outcome and after just watching the BBC forecast, both them and the Met O seem to be going down the same road of pushing the system far enough north to kill of our showers without allowing us to join in the fun of the frontal snow.

    there’s still time for it to change though but I think this will once again turn out to be a case of our region snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    i haven’t dared go into the mad thread this morning although with the system looking that far north, toys may still be flying as areas further south could see rain instead of snow.

    i may just pluck up courage and sneak in.

    Interesting forecast for our more northern members of the region for Monday, to quote bbc "a spell of more persistent snow moving in". That's certainly popped up quite late and will be a theme of the week I feel.

    @iand61 I feel for you after today mate, watching Everton now from behind the couch. We have been bloody awful lately, a loss wouldn't surprise me at all.

    TBH it was never going to be a different result playing City away but the score was a bit of a sickener.

    anyway staying in the PL was always the main aim with the small matter of ending OGS’s winning start on Tuesday is our next outing.

    to make matters worse i’m offering moral support to my wife’s dry January so I can’t even hide behind a bit of alcohol.

    hopefully a utopian forecast which doesn’t vanish into thin air is on the cards

    Thanks mate will do. Next week is going to be a right headache to forecast, I think to begin with if we get to tomorrow eve still showing snow showers for Tues then that will do for starters. Wed now has snow showers too, the track of the low afterward won't be sorted til probably 24 hours out. Not boring that's for sure!

    Selfishly all I don’t want is the midlands and south getting buried in snow from channel lows while we sit here literally green with envy.

    showers are ok but amounts can vary hugely within a few miles, and as others have already said, having the low further north risks cutting off the showers without necessarily giving us anything from the system itself.

    Give me a couple of weeks with Atlantic fronts bumping into entrenched cold air and dumping heavy snow and I’ll be happy.
