It's all gone very dreary now hasn't it. I thought we were in for a sustained prolonged cold spell.

 

Never mind, it's only the weather.


Where's Andy when you need him?

All we're asking for is 'cold enough for snow'. :cold:

 

Can't be that difficult... is the sea warmer?

Well the met office have another warning for us for Sunday into Monday as has been mentioned - but personally not holding out much hope again at this time - expecting some showers of snow, which will melt shortly later...anything more will be a bonus. Another let down of a winter overall - though marginally better than last years. (Though that is not difficult to beat - assuming its cold, ice and snow you are after).

Yes to that the sea is warming from underneath.

2.4c now that cloud has gone now to get temps to drop and not melt all the snow.

I think the hunt for snow sends the lot of us demented. It's such a rollercoaster. Excitement, disappointment, excitement again. It can be so frustrating at times. Unfortunately we can't control the weather and it will do what the hell it likes, but we can hope and hope we do. :)

Snow for down south was never on until the colder air filtered further south which will be this weekend,  On this forum 90%of people are on here hunting for snow ,rest of the year  me and a few others talk on the other threads ,.we had some snow which is a lot more than last year .the last few days we have been very unlucky just missing out by a couple of centigrade,thats what you get living in southern UK

As these Northerlys are low pressure areas at the moment it's important that we keep an eye on any little sneaky lows (they are very sneaky!) they may increase shower activity :) - just keep an eye out over the w/e ;)

Last night was always progged to be during the mildest part of the spell, with the mildest uppers and as such nothing really was expected.

 

Already another mix of showers here today from rain to hail sleet and snow.

 

To me the main interest has always been from the NNW flow. the cleaner the better.

So far 7 days of falling snow so far this winter, far better than lat year, however only 1 day of snow at 9am, and that was a dusting. would be nice to have a proper covering, not had one in over 2 years now!!!.

How confident is everybody for this coming Sunday night into Monday for the snow starved South?

Wait and see, the dividing line for rain-snow can be VERY thin in these setups

Warmed up to 3.2C earlier today and a big thaw has occurred.

 

Down to 0.6C now and heavy snow being blown around in a very strong WNW wind

Not confident at all. Bet a pound to a penny we will start to hear words in association with this possible event such as "marginal"

If that happens we might as well pack up and go home on this frankly disappointing spell.

Looks like winds will veer more NNW through Saturday AM, allowing for more organised precipitation over W/SW Wales (Streamer). However when looking at upper 850hpa temperatures they vary from -6 to -4C and dew points 0- 1C (Looking at EURO 4).

 

Looks marginal for snow away from about 200m with costal areas seeing rain/sleet/hail, its not to rule out in much heavier bursts the snow will work its way down to low levels for a time but nothing of any substance I don't think.

 

Heres the Met Office forecast for Wales:

 

"This Evening and Tonight:

Isolated wintry showers this evening, but then a more defined line of showers travelling south across country from around midnight. This clearing before dawn, then icy stretches developing. Some showers lingering. Becoming very windy, gales likely at coasts. Feeling cold. Minimum Temperature -2 Â°C.

Saturday:

Cold and mostly dry with sunny spells, but some showers lingering across southwest Wales. Wintry showers becoming more frequent from evening. Winds increasing, with gales along coasts. Maximum Temperature 6 Â°C.

Worth looking at the SWest thread to see the possible snow Tuesday.

 Sound promising see developments comes  quick in a unstable airflow after dark interesting .Heavier showers the better driving dewpoints down better chance for snow.Nice to  see colder air digging in and showers turning back to snow over N ireland.
