    Temps have crept upto 1c so not an ice-day here but still bitterly cold - compacted ice on most pavements and side roads and a few inches of snow on grassy areas...

     

    Oldham Church looking very wintery today...

    Moisture from the North Sea. Can see clearly on the radar exactly where the moisture is coming from. Showers becoming reinvigorated as they leave the Pennines, then die a quick death.

     

    They are actually gaining in intensity as they leave the Manchester area and head NE towards Leeds.

    From what I can gather this could well  turn out to be  the last chance saloon, really hope that the stuff that some of us had on Boxing Day doesn't turn out to be our lot for the season.

    Snowfest on the way to NW, if you are watching dont worry

    There isn't........

    Sound familiar, reverse psychology and all that

    Never seen such a messy forecast from the met office for my area. It's heavy snow to sleet to heavy snow. It shows how in all honesty nobody has a clue apart from we get some weather.

    Hi CS, as above really, at least for my location. might get a little sleety snow and patchy light rain. Anywhere further North with some height should get a few CM but nothing like the depths discussed in the MO thread IMO, 10 and 15cm have been mentioned there. I would go less than that. Oddly we may do better Wednesday if the front stalls and pivots as there will be colder draw again by then with the associated warm sectors vanquished. 

     

    I say that based on everything being so marginal Tuesday for DP's to 850's right down to even the amount of ppn and the fact MetO have never been keen on asnow event, always mentioning rain/sleet snow and "snow on hills"

    I think it is better to have low expectations though as anything will be an unexpected bonus for me.

    i dont know what to make of this situation to be honest...so many different opinions...met still have my area down for heavy snow tue night into wednesday...gonna go down to the wire i think.

    The BBC weather showing snow and some sleet for Leyland. That place is at the west of M6 and not far from it.

    So Leyland is lower than Chorley so that means to me is an upgrade. :-)

    Got a horrible feeling it's going to be a non event! The front will raise the wet bulb & dew points, snow likely restricted to high ground. The Met have far more tools to be able to forecast this accurately, hence no warnings have been issued for the region. Who would you believe the GFS or the Met Office!? lol

     

    Been a cold day here with a max of 2.7c.

    Skies have cleared now, suns reminding us that it still exists as it dips down on the western horizon. Could be even colder tonight is the skies remain cloud free.

    We need clear skies tonight. The colder we get the better chance for snow tomorrow evening. :-)
