As I mentioned in the other topic the band will weaken considerably as it pushes southwards

Its not just that. They showed rain for the coast of wales and SW England when they are obviously having snow. Was even rain on the coasts of Scotland.

this regards to the cold spell. why is it leeds never ever ever gets temperatures like -15? manchester got down to that and what makes leeds for example diffeent. its every cold spell an dit never fails to surprise me. i don't think it ever hardly drops below -5 in spells like this. why does it never get minus double digits. here we are predicted -10 tonght, my guess leeds will be -6 or something. bloody annoying.

Heavy Snow Sun 10 Jan

There is a moderate risk of severe weather affecting many parts of Wales and England.

There is potential for further outbreaks of snow, which could locally become heavy and prolonged at times, especially in the south. This will lead to further icy stretches on roads and pavements.

Issued at: 1105 Thu 7 Jan

CAn someone explain to me where Sunday's supposed snow is coming from? Is it just going to be many heavy showers or something more organised - both Sky, the Beeb and the met seem to be hinting at something but nothing looks "organised" on the charts (except the fax - what's the difference between a front in solid black and one that is just an outline?)

12z Fax chart for midday Sunday (I think)

There's a developing area of low pressure crossing from the continent bringing instability. The hollow symbols on the front indicate a upper cold front.

"Upper fronts represent the boundaries between air masses at levels above the surface. For instance, the passage of an upper warm front may bring warmer air at an altitude of 10,000 ft, without bringing a change of air mass at the surface. "

Excellent - thanks for that. Now I know what to look for I will allow my hopes to elevate somewhat! :D

Just in case anyone was interested, as these got lost at the end of the last thread, but the Eden in Appleby has ice flowing down it!
