  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. I hope you stay dry mate but, as a Burnley fan I hope you come away disappointed and able to concentrate on the others trophies you are still in for i can’t see it though
  4. Yeah but knowing our look it will be telling us that the midlands and south will be getting heavy snow and blizzards with the northern extent somewhere around stoke.
  5. Is it just me who feels really short changed when you see a weather warning for you area only to find it relates to ice. on this occasion i’m just outside the yellow zone but it irritates all the same, it’s not like ice even does anything. heavy rain, heavy snow, high winds you can see something happening but I can open my freezer door and see ice. sorry a bit of a tongue in cheek moment and it can cause accidents but it just shows how dull our region is weather wise when the best we can achieve is a warning for ice. if drizzle warranted a warning though, we’d be on permanent red alert.
  6. It’s difficult to get any further from the sea than here and not many live higher than I do but i’m not that optimistic about seeing anything more than a slushy mess, as you say the wind will be to strong with too much of the cold being mixed out. even if we do get something lying I can’t imagine it lasting that long into the day, yes it will feel damn cold in the wind but forecast temperatures are at best average and probably on the mild side. never mind, hopefully plenty of opportunities coming up next week.
  7. Remember it well, we went to London for the weekend and the only snow we saw was photos and news coverages of it burying the north. we had almost a foot othe stuff at home, by the time got home it had all melted
  8. Don’t worry folks, the channel low is back on so it’s all ok again in the mad thread. at least now I can concentrate on how many goals Citeh puts past us this afternoon without the additional worry of whether it will be snow or cold rain on a Tesco car park in north London. i’ll worry about our own underwhelming snowcast nearer the time.
  9. I haven’t had time to read 14 pages of whether it will be day after tomorrow conditions in the Home Counties but it’s a bit more depressing in the mod thread this morning so I can only assume that the model output isn’t as favourable as it was. cold and hopefully snow is coming though and although it’s probably the usual areas which benefit the most I hope we all have at least a few days of settling snow to look forward to.
  10. Isn’t it the GFS which has moved the system south and got our friends in the south excited about disruptive snow or is this a different event.
  11. Folks in the mad thread are much happier again now as it looks like their snowmagedon is back on after once again pinching our bloody weather system. i haven’t looked myself but it sounds like they are expecting feet of the stuff with everyone north of the midlands getting jack s**t. Anyway history says they will end up being being right but until the Met O agrees with them i’ll keep my shovel at the ready.
  12. I’m here but I know what you mean about no names showing. anyway only just got in so are we still in upgrade mode for our region next week and is it still dodge the low flying toys in the mad thread. Dare I have a full on ramp here and say that the Met. O forecast for the next couple of weeks has memories of the late 70’s and early 80’s winters about it. yes there will no doubt be downgrades but there are plenty of snow opportunities showing and the chance of severe frosts so all I all it could be a damn site worse
  13. Slightest covering of new snow on the cars overnight but just damp and misty now.
  14. Yesterday’s sleety crap and last nights better effort at proper snow has left a couple of inches of the stuff here so I suppose I can’t complain. conditions would make for a cracking winter walking day, shame i’m In work
  15. Thanks for the update, i’d got settled so it saved me getting up and looking. the roads were covered earlier when I went down the valley to the well known German supermarket but I thought that was it for the day so anything else is a bonus.
  16. Well i’m off to work now so someone can have my chair if they want it. good luck with your snow folks.
  17. Bloody hell is it my eyes or are there really 80 members in the northwest regional thread at 6 in the morning. better get the emergency chairs out,
  18. 2nd morning with snow on the ground here as I don’t count the late October dandruff event only a but couple of cm so far but it’s still falling and with a half decent forecast we could end the day with a decent covering.
  19. Peeeeeeing down here so it’s looking like back edge snow or nothing, at least until tomorrow’s showers get going.
  20. Meto extended outlook still looks good for the region with plenty of snow chances and with a decent shot at something substantial over the next few days, things are certainly looking up after the grim crap of the last few months. it’s very much a case of wait and see but i think my love hate relationship with snow is going to be tested shortly.
  21. Looks like the wrist slashing and pram bashing of yesterday has died down in the mad thread so I assume the models are showing something a bit better overnight. There doesn’t sound to be much sign of the fabled easterly though with most of the action over coming days being from the NW so for once, our region could be prime spot for some decent snow. as usual from this direction though, uppers and ground temperatures could be a bit marginal so altitude may be a factor but intensity should help in bringing snow to the lower levels found in parts exposed to the NW. hopefully we all see something better than a bit of transient crap and move away from what has so far been one hell of a frustrating and depressing winter.
  22. Saying North West usually means of the British Isles so it’s a damn large area and my guess is the sweet spots being NW Scotland and N Ireland. but it’s nice to hear and when it comes to snow, certainly better than hearing South East
  23. Agreed, I think this system is pretty well nailed on now and with even colder air tucking in behind it could be one of those rare events when rain turns to snow or stays as snow right through. that would make a change from the default setting of a bit of snow that can’t wait to turn slushy as the mandatory warm sector moves in. as for who sees the most snow, very much up for grabs but I would imagine the usual mountain areas, North Wales, Cumbria etc should get a few hours of heavy snow as the front passes through but hopefully everyone will join in the action.
