C.S

Looking at glossop and mossley on that forecast temp never gets above 4 c this whole coming week, compared to bbc saying 7c but their forecast for here is based on leek thornecliffe which is miles away, and then rain friday temp only gets to 3c and is 1c for vast majority of the day with rain? On a nearer timescale says light snow for this avo too.... Oh well what will be will be....going for a walk with dog in a while.... Then pub and footy.... Edited by WillinGlossop

Certainly will feel colder in the next few days but I'm not pinning any hopes on Friday's low to be proceeded by a slush fest (because that's all it will be for here). Milder weather will be hot on the heels.  Could be an upgrade but I'll stick with the meto's forecast for now.

 

Just looking at my gallery I've always been able to take a snowy wintery pic for the last 4 years...

i wouldnt use metcheck whatsoever will! it says 4oC for me right now and its actually 6oC.  i check it daily and its always 2oC too warm.  netweather 10 days forecasts are always the most accurate forecasts of the data driven ones!

When i was walking down a canal I saw about 25 Canadian gooses. There is a myth if I see a lot of them, then the cold spell should be due any time in the next few weeks. I'm not giving up on this Winter just yet.

 

I will give up end of March if its stays zonal.

2c drizzle all day and now fog.....lovely.....

Feels cold and peak district forecast says snow but very much doubt it precip not heavy enough.....todays max 3c pretty horrible but had a few breaks with long lasting rainbow at lunchtime before hill fog came in again.... Tomorrow looks to be dry and cold and will probably not get above freezing up here so nice weather for walking....

Someone on the weather TV forecast mentioned the chance of icy conditions tonight.

I wasn't sure what this was so looked it up.

Aparantly it's when the temperature falls close to freezing and water turns solid and is common in some countries in winter.

In the UK it said you can find it in the cold white drawer where you keep your fish fingers.

Been on you tube looking at snow , it must be amazing to live in a country that gets it !!...

Yeah, oh to live in one of those places where winter snow is virtually guaranteed.Greece, Southern US states, North Africa.Seriously though I've just been reading about the latest winter storm to hit the USA, this time places like Georgia and Alabama and due to the fact that they don't usually get snow and therefore done even have ploughs and gritters, just 3 inches of it caused chaos on the roads stranding thousands.That sounds familiar.The other thing was that the storm was a thousand miles across and covered 4 states; our attempts at winter storms are lucky to effect 4 counties.

Looking very windy on Saturday from the WNW, combined with 10 metre tides for liverpool it could result in flooding for the wirral and north wales. Maybe a repeat of the 5th of December, which saw under reported major damage to new brighton, west kirby and Rhyl.

Could be spectacular on new brighton prom......

Temperature down to 1.9c here but the rate of fall is painstakingly slow and I'd be surprised if we get our first sub zero temperature of 2014 tonight.

As for Fridays storm, looks like the chances of snow are less than non existent across all but the highest ground and even there it will probably soon turn back to rain again.
