My drive home from work tonight! Shame it didn't stick around!

Snowing here, and now settling quite rapidly. Who'd have thought it.

Looks like the NW will miss out on the snow now with the ppn staying further South than previously predicted. Euro4 has no snow for the NW and ppn not reaching Northern England and MetO latest forecast reflects this.

Looks like Saturdays showers are now are best bet.

Where does the latest Met Office reflect this?

Headline:

Mostly dry this morning, but turning unsettled this afternoon. Cold.

Today:

A bright, frosty start to Boxing Day with patchy freezing fog and isolated showers at first. Becoming cloudy later in the morning with rain spreading northeast during the afternoon, mainly into southern counties, perhaps with some snow, mostly over hills. Maximum Temperature 4 °C.

Tonight:

Some rain across most parts but drier across Cumbria. Rain, sleet and snow clearing southeast after midnight with icy conditions developing. Wintry showers spreading into the northwest by dawn. Minimum Temperature -1 °C.

Saturday:

Cold and icy to start with wintry showers across the northwest, these moving southeast during the morning, some perhaps prolonged. Becoming drier and brighter through the afternoon. Staying cold. Maximum Temperature 3 °C.

Hearing mixed things about the snow potential for this eve.

And I'm a novice at reading the charts.

So GOOD LUCK to everyone in the best region of the uk :)

Yes it does appear to be making more northwards progress on radar. Currently watching weather yr review on BBC news CH. That Atlantic storm conveyor belt was on steroids last winter!

Have I got it wrong? I thought the ppn on the radar now was always forecast to be rain...it's the back edge later and the showers that will follow that may be snow, isn't it?

I believe today's event is more of a nowcast just hope for the best, maybe better chances tomorrow

I agree, a band of showers tomorrow could be of snow, though Metoffice seem to be reserving that one for higher ground atm too. Today's event is better if you're further South and East of the region. Here in warrington, I'm JUST in the yellow warning, probably because it's been mild in the NW England over night due to the rain showers we've had.

This is looking promising!!

That would be good if all snow! Im only available to see MetOffice forecast atm, but if colder air does undercut that, then most of NW England could see something. Day of radar watching I think!

Well it feels cold here, when I checked the temp it was showing +2 (I'm about 2 miles from Liverpool Airport).

The precipitation area on the radar seems to be moving quicker than I thought-I think any ppn we get from the front edge will be rain.

I fully agree.

The just updated Met O. alert areas has taken the main action further south but much of the region, certainly higher ground towards the east is still likely to see something.

How much falls though is still up for grabs but I feel that higher parts of the Peak District and South Penninies could see a good few inches by the time it clears through.

It could certainly be an interesting journey back home over the tops after this afternoons football.

Tomorrow's looking good with plenty of showers packing in from the North West and this may favour areas which miss out on today's event so hopefully we will all see something over the next couple of days.

Currently 2.6c

Had a few rain showers this morning, surprisingly the temp is now 5.0c Dew 4.0c, when I went to bed last night it was cold and frosty! Not looking good for snow away from elevation and we are sitting the colder air up here!
