    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

    Just got caught in a Heavy shower ( just rain i'm afraid ) the wind was really whipping up and still is.... :cold:

     

    Saturday morning is starting to look interesting as a marked trough is heading down from the NW that could deliver a covering of SNOW for some

    Some GEFS members are going for alot of PPN but as we all know with SNOW the finer details make all the difference.

     

    Just waiting for the lastest FAX charts to come out......It may lead to nothing but you never know..... One to keep an eye on :D

    Does anyone know if Northampton can expect to see any significant snow in the next week or will it mostly be confined to the north and west?

    A heavy shower of small hail followed by 5 minutes of snow about an hour ago. The ground was whitened but it's gradually thawing now. The roads were covered in about 1cm of slippery slush.

    A bit too early to say, to be honest. I think the further north one is, the greater the chance of seeing something wintry.

    No chance of snow tonight or tomorrow looking at latest BBC forecast.

    The temperatures they show are far too high and they just show rain in Midlands.

    Hilly areas may see some snow but it doesn't look likely any low lying areas will get snow tomorrow or tonight

    looking at the bbc forecast.

    There don't seem to be many showers tomorrow either looking at the maps they showed earlier.

    Hope they are wrong!

    if this turns out to be another 'marginal' snow event I will lose all faith.  Just one or two snow events during a 3-4 month winter is hardly asking for the earth for heaven's sake.  c'mon weather, just do it.

    snow freak; Saturday could be marginal or maybe nowt for some! the best chance of seeing proper SNOW will be early next week

    as the Cloud starts increasing on Monday/Tuesday with more Widespread snow into western parts later,

    this will be the one that'll be more UK Widespread than a few showers that may or may not come together to give us a covering on Saturday morning, but we will see.

    Keep The Faith :D

    Its bound to be marginal but they are the ones with the greatest rewards and proper heavy snow I think your area will be ok. All is open to change though and the met have no clue.
