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

Looking colder but dry and snowless at this stage here next week, uppers look marginal and will probably be watered down. Seen the carrot dangled, the garden path, a great ECM run all for it to be nothing but a few frosts and some frontal break down flakes before rain. Obviously, it may be completely wrong and turn into something brillant this time round, but unless it's at T24, it's not all that likely to happen. 

 

Keep a lid on expectations.

The above sounds spot on to me...........

Hi all, 

 

I'm really not getting my hopes up but it would be a lovely birthday present if we were to get snow on Wednesday :D  I think it was 2004 when I last saw birthday snow, I lived in Cardiff then, right on the coast and we got a good covering!

Blimey, look have far we've moved forward in forecasts - just in the last decade or so. Makes you wonder what forecasting will be like by 2050. 

 

Just hope I'm here to see it.

Used to love that old style Weather map! Hated it at first when they changed it to the more modern looking one.

One of the coldest feeling weeks to come in a while, wind chill down to the -10's come Thursday/Friday and that's going to feel Bitter  shiver.gif

Weds/Thurs, Snow Showers coming in from the Northwest, streamer maybe or even the odd trough or two windy.gif

Fax charts will be interesting in the next few days...... troughs can pop up from nowhere in these northerly set ups

 

With Met Office giving out early Warning for parts of the UK already for Weds, it's only time before the rest of the UK will join in..... will all the FUN OF THE FAIR :D

Yeah me too :)  I loved those iconic weather symbols, and when they used to splash the odd extra snowflake around you knew we were in business!

It looks like another non-event for snow this week, apart from the locations that have already had a covering of snow this winter.

 

At best we may see a dusting of snow, but these northerly events are a waste of time for widespread snow.

 

For my location so far it's been a poor winter with no snow on the ground.

Not sure this time as deep low pressure is close by and so surprise falls are very likely to crop up!

It looks like a potent Northwesterly, good news for the midlands and even southeast England ,thanks to the Cheshire gap effect.... :cold:

When there's talk of a Northerly, it isn't really a straight Northerly more of a NW'ly,

The air may come from up North, but that doesn't mean it's coming down the spine of the country in which agreed....a waste of time :doh:

Snow opportune moments becometh the streamer.... Finger-crossed anyway :p

Watch the video Lukey posted earlier today. This shows a forecast for a lot of snow over a lot of the UK brought in by a northerly airflow. Edited by picog

I'm actually quite optimistic for the upcoming spell from an IMBY perspective. At worst, a few days of clear, sunny, frosty weather, which is what a clean northerly generally brings. For those of us in the west, that's a better bet than an easterly, which unless it's very potent generally just brings us grey, raw nothingness. It's certainly better than today's weather! And of course if the northerly includes a few nice disturbances, then it'll be game on.

 

And I'm sure many of us can remember that the January 2010 spell looked like being a non-event for a lot of us a few days out; in the event, it delivered to some extent for most people. Here in Bewdley, we had 8cm of powder snow, three successive ice days and lots of bright winter sunshine. If it hadn't been for the truly amazing December that year, I think Jan 2010 would be a lot fresher in some of our minds.

 

Anyway, it's an experiment: for the last spell I was pessimistic a fair bit. This time round, I'm going to try keeping my spirits up and see whether it makes me feel better. I can't change what the weather does, but I can change how I react to it. :)

Arctic Hare -

 

Lovely balanced post. Try to keep it up if it all turns ars about face!

 

MIA

 

Thanks... and yes, that of course will be the tricky bit! It takes some effort to stay cheerful when you're looking out at hours of cold rain. But I'll try!

I think the best chance of snowfall in this region will be Wednesday night. After than patience might be required for further chances in the first week of February- if the cold remains in place.

This has been a good winter for my little patch of the Midlands - slight disappointment on Tuesday night but still got a covering which was topped up surprisingly on Wednesday around lunchtime. Added to that the excellent Boxing Day event ( which I was away for but saw the great snow over two days later through didn't feel it was my snowfall as I didn't see it falling)

Means that Nottingham has probably got as much out of this frustrating winter as possibly could be got.

This event doesn't scream out as one for my area as it stands through sometimes a North westerly can deliver showers to this area.

Hard to say at this stage. Granted most northerlies deliver little precipitation to the Midlands, however this does look to be a fairly unsettled northerly, with a few troughs.

We also have a bitter north westerly Wednesday into Thursday, which should bring showers well inland.

We are unlikely to see a big fall of snow from this spell, but a few cms may be possible for a few areas, particularly northern and western parts of the region.

Similiar perhaps to Jan 03, but longer lasting than that spell.
