    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

    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.

    well Boxing Day event was marginal for us as it started as heavy rain before finally turning to snow resulting in a brief covering for an hour before it turned back to rain again.  just hope whatever turns up in the coming week offers something a bit more exciting for all of us and at least a few hours of heavy snow leaving snow cover for a day or more.  I would settle for that.

    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

    This is what i mean come Tuesday..... All Subject to :whistling:.........SLIDER HEAVEN :smile:

    Notable just how cold that wind is out there.

     

    Not really expecting much over the weekend...and neither is the Met Office forecast which has been good for here so far this winter.

     

    Only Monday is within range on the forecast at the moment...looking forward to seeing how they handle next week.

    snow freak....It's a LOW thats incoming from the North/Northwest and slides ('slider') down the Uk South/Southeast

    But this one is a SNOW-LOW  :cold:  :cold:  :cold:  because theres cold air inplace on the east side of the LOW, inwhich = SNOW FOR THE UK :D

    It looks like it from the charts Dancer posted. Whether it happens like that of course is a different matter, nonetheless, very encouraging.

    12Z GFS looks snowier than the 06Z {mon-wed), but 06Z showed a beast from the east 12Z dosen't, but all way off yet, and we have a very exciting period coming up on netweather!

    Despite the optimism of the charts, the MetO 5-dayer has virtually no snow in the forecast for Ludlow.

    Blustery and very cold feeling here right now, but dry. Temp 4.7C.

    How are we seeing next week then in terms of snowfall? Is this low going to push far enough west to reach the midlands as at the moment looks dry for us in the west midlands?

    Whereabouts are you in the west Midlands? Can you add your location to your avatar so that when you report mountains of snow we know where it is!

    Don't believe all you read in the MOD thread.

    Too far west -- we will get no snow. (say west coast of Ireland.) unless it turns up the Channel. (Unlikely)

    Crossing Northern Ireland and down thru Wales - continuous snow here.

    Down the Irish Sea and over West Mids. Potential for maximum snow, but could turn to rain for a while.

    Towards East Midlands would represent rain. and sleet for most people in the midlands.

     

    A lot of people on the MOD thread are in the south and they are desperate for it to move to the west and then up the Channel.

     

    Also much depends upon the shape of the low. If rounder (and hence deeper) it will bring in more mild air and be a sleety mix.

     

    We need it to be as elongated as possible to avoid a warmer sector and hence best results for us

    The real excitement starts just out of range of the 5 dayer. But it's a good idea to keep feet on the ground until the forecasts firm up on anything. Little bits and pieces of interest for the weekend on the forecast that may or may not be worth looking out for.

     

    Tomorrow evening onwards will be the time when I would like to see things starting to appear on the more public forecasts. And they of course could still change dramatically through the weekend!

    Meanwhile, shower bands approaching from the west in a similar way to Tuesday evening. Shame there's not as much cold air around this time.

    Theres going to be alot of towing and froing between all the models regarding PPN for the up and coming SNOW next week, wouldn't fancy being the Met Office over the weekend :crazy:

    My biggest concern is the LOW (slider) being too far west and sinking over Ireland, better for cold but not for SNOW..... ATM best potential for snow since March 2013 :drinks:
