    The band has been slipping southwards slowly but I'm not sure how long that process will last nor if the band will just run out of steam.

    If we're lucky we might catch the heavy ppn at the end of the band.

    Snow in Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, still just out of reach for Oldham area at present, but it's only a matter of time looking out to the west...more bands lined up.

    Well the forecast looked good but now the predictive PPN chart on the met office suddenly changed to show it fragmenting and breaking up, that's the first 2 hours of heavy snow that the BBC predicted for me bust, its still got heavy snow for the next 10 hours though LOL, oh well 2 down 10 hours to go - not a single flake!!

    I thought the met office and bbc weather apps were too good to be true, although it is very much online with the local weather that Diane did lastnight. And Manchester South didn't get snow till this evening. So try not to get your hopes up too much.

    I think they should be interpreted as that snow could fall in the time period rather that snow will fall continuously during that time period.

    I think some people have looked at it and thought it will be snow non stop from said time to said time. Lol!

    True but it said 6am heavy snow, 7am heavy snow, so you would expect to at least see one flake at some point during that hour, its not like it was based on a run 24 hours ago either, it was updated at 5.10 am!!!!!

    I didn't even know I had had a dusting around tea time yesterday, I was busy but looked out the window at 10pm, on the mountains at 1000ft, theres quite a bit more than a dusting.

    As euro and gfs have a more nw slant to the winds this morning the showers should move more nw to se trajectory which happened yesterday, when at lunchtime we got 1-2cm, more areas such as oldham, and here, should be in firing line this morning through this evening.... Heres a hoping....
