A retired police constable turned climatologist claims snow will fall all over the UK this winter! I talk about this in more detail on my blog here but thought I would put it in general discussion as well
The Met Office have already spoken up and said that he doesn't use a scientific way of forecasting and that winter will be cold, it's winter. Ha.
Anyway he goes onto say that Christmas day will be snowy for the north but no luck for the south. Apparently though the south of UK will see large amounts of snow into the new year and temperatures will drop into 5-. He says he is hardly ever wrong so who knows, we might be in for some luck here in the UK.
I personally can only remember one year that we had amazing snow here in the south of the UK. It was great. Either way fingers crossed.
SACRA has a new home, and is the first community club on Netweather
For those who don't know, SACRA stands for Snow And Cold Rampers Association, and has been running on the community since 2005. @Snow Queen one has the original membership list (anyone can join), and up to now SACRA lived in a thread on the forums. (This is the thread from last year)
Now, with a bit more space to spread it's wings, SACRA has galleries and a set of snow related topics for members to get involved in. So if you love snow, want to chat about it, post your snow photos, and ramp like crazy about upcoming snow prospects this is your place! To join the club, just click the join club button and you're in, you'll then be able to get involved right away.
Moving into November and it is time to open another thread to discuss the upcoming Winter Sports Season in the Northern Hemisphere.
The Net Weather Ski Centre is here -> https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/travel/ski
This contains a massive range of Skiing related content.
Blogs - This will contain forecast blogs for this coming season, the Alps blogs will start early December to co-incide with the majority of resorts opening (hopefully). Paul will also be adding a number of blogs over the course of the season, which will also cover conditions over the the USA and Canada.
Resort Weather Forecasts - Resort Weather forecasts based on GFS, updated 4 times a day, together with current conditions. Wengen Forecast and Conditions

Scotland Section - There is also a section dedicated to the conditions over Scotland. https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/travel/scotland-ski
This thread will now run throughout the 2017/18 season, so please give your thoughts for the season ahead, and new features you would like to see. A few thoughts :-
Will the winter season start on time this year or will we have to wait until post Christmas for proper low level snow.
Will the USA/Canada continue to have the best of the conditions.
Will the East West Alps split be an issue again this year.
How important are snow cannons to the ongoing viability of ski season.
Any winter topic of your choosing.
Over the course of the season keep bringing those Alpine related stories, whether from local papers or your skiing trips, which made this thread such a joy last year.
