A cold clear day, With everything still frozen. A few shots while out walking earlier. Temp 0.4c Dp -1.9c WC 0.2c

METO should have followed the map 

Great Longstone at 11.00am this morning pretty difficult journey, what with fog and blowing snow very tricky approx. 20 to 25cms   also plenty of vids from Beeley Moor most are at 250m to 350mtrs

Hi Midlanders ! Looking for some info, my County football team are playing Nottinghamshire at Rainworth FC on Sunday.

Is there anyone from the area on here ? Do you have much lying snow, if so, I doubt the game will be played, unless a quick thaw and it drains quick.

Thanks

 

cannot see any low level snow surviving friday's fairly big mild sector, say under 200m, I'd expect full thaw

I live about 300yards from Rainworth FC lol

 

Roads are pretty much ok, about 3-4cm of snow on garden/grass/footie pitch, but it's due to warm up by the weekend. Sunny on Saturday 5deg and up to 7degrees on Sunday so would have thought the game will be on :)

Funnily enough I was going to say as the colder air creeps back over us then we may see some light snow if there's anything left from the damn thing.

 

Yes SSIB,

 

Signs of the drier air creeping in from the south east

I started off with a temp of about 2.4C around 09:00, got up to a max of 2.8C (dp of 0.3C)at 13:00.

It has now dropped back to a temp of 2.2C, with a dew point of -0.3C so anything falling will probably be wintry.

How spooky is that, thanks for the info, fingers crossed the pitch is fit for Sunday then. Thanks again

The Earthtools website should be able to tell you the ASL for anywhere in the UK, Bigsnow.

The only thing faulty with the MetO warnings were the people who failed to read what the warnings actually said!  

If you can't read, get Mummy to read them for you.   The pweety yellow piccy-tures do not depict where snow is actually expected to fall .....

At last a voice of reason this place fills me with despair sometimes :(

video from this morning north Derbyshire. 20 min drive even in the panda it was a worry, but took it steady and no probs, just drove in tractor tracks.

 

not sure on ASL on both towns, Matlock Youth hostel is around 180 to 190, I have free app on smart phone that displays asl when out, pretty handy.

I have family in Wirksworth so will check this weekend. (I know my house is at 185m but as we know here a 10 min walk can take you to 250 easy

eh? where did I mention Nick F? nothing to do with Nick, it's to do with cold spells being reliant on MJO etc, when GFS is as flat as a pancake

Never mentioned that you did mention Nick, i was just pointing out that your were saying that the MJO, teleconnections are crap! and a times i do agree but not all,

Nick said "the medium to long range outlook into the beginning of February is certainly looking rosy for cold lovers looking at the teleconnections and MJO"

He's Current opinion on the teleconnections and MJO has bases ....and yours......that they are just Crap!

For those in the Midlands who've seen little snow so far, then this Winter needs to be repaired. I think it's broken. :/

 

Come on guys.

 

December about 1degree above average

January looks to  be heading for normal to 0.5C above average. (though could still change)..

 

It looks like many other winter's past to me.

 

The temperature has been about 1C just to high for the midlands to receive widespread snowfall inspite of very good synoptics.

 

I hope this isn't taken the wrong way, but Cohen's predictions(OPI Man) look pretty well spot on to me. 

 

His forecast was for the UK was mild Decemeber, becoming colder during Jauary and then a much colder than average for february. so there is at least one forecast that isn't bust yet.

PS He said we might be just too far west to get te full cold so don't go overboard with expectations.. 

 

Still a full 8 weeks to get substantial snowfalls (if thats what you are after), so please keep a balanced attitude and see what is given to us.

 

I for one have found this winters synoptics very interesting as things keep popping up unforcasted (I hope this tendency might well come to our benefit soon).
