    There's a good site that looks at the conditions at Barrow - http://seaice.alaska...row_massbalance

    The data doesn't go back a long way but roughly speaking in recent years the lasting ice forms on the Chukchi sea (in the webcam) about the start of November on average, so nothing to be concerned about yet.

    In the severe melt year of 2007, the ice returned on 15th December, so that could be something to look for this year.

    Blue doing well, Red not!

    Posted Image First chance of snow away from tallest mountains monday?

    Hmm, high ground only. Anything below 1000m is likely to be sleet or very cold rain.

    This time last year managed to produce snow down to about 500m over much of the Highlands, uppers look similiar tomorrow, so I wouldn't be surprised to see snow down to at least 600m, with sleet around 400m mark. All very normal for the time of year. The Lakeland Fells haven't experienced any wintriness so far this new season, but we really need a cold arctic plunge to do this. In cold Octobers such as 1992, 1993 snow fell down to very low levels, also 2008 thanks to cold arctic airmass. However, the fells don't normally see their first proper snows before mid November, but from now on the chances increase markedly..

    Friday to Sunday Snow Cover

    Thinking that South Norway will keep a positive amount of snow this week and the more northerly negatives may go.

    Fresh snow in Kiruna Sweden. post-15601-0-42432100-1350263664_thumb.j

    The area west of the Siberian high pressure will be our chance to see for the snow move farther west by next weekend.

    Snow risk for Scotland decreased from what it was and ten days to more snow chances....subject to change! Posted Imagepost-15601-0-73848800-1350262631_thumb.p

    The wallpaper on my phone is a webcam that auto updates and woke up this morning to a luvverly sight.

    Looks like some of the Alps have had a dumping! Maybe the updated map tomorrow will show white over the Alps.

    With a chart like that, snow must have been a miracle event anywhere away from the extreme NW Europe! Lol

    There was a snow event on the 30th Ocotober (I think it was the 30th). Brought a meter of snow to the peaks of cairngorm etc, but as was the pattern last year, it was gone within the week. I do also remember Madden jumping on that event as a precursor to his "Epic" winter. Posted Image

    Following on from my earlier pic... it's still coming down in parts of the Alps! Love seeing the first snows arrive there. It means Winter ain't far away. :)post-15539-0-80853800-1350306376_thumb.p
