    I think those going round in circles dissecting forecasts from different forecasters (or the same ones at different times) are just going to tie themselves in knots here. You're in the SE of England,

    yeah she just text me the same-

    Just had a peak at the 18z UKMO (meso) and it shows the centre of the small low moving SE across the Midlands around 3am then across SE England around 6am, sleet/snow showers swirling around this low

    I'm not. We've already had two complete fails in this region. I'll be excited when I actually see snow falling out of the sky, no point getting excited until then

    Not too excited till the Met come on board and issue warnings for the area

    Until they are on board i think amounts, if any, wont be much

    Hmm... I must be a frost hollow.. I notice always when I see the temps around me I am about 1-2 below them in certain setups..

    Definitely a touch of frost on cars and grass then again I am really rural here

    Good work Lassie. And my holiday booking was much as predicted too:

    Two things to note here. We are flying out to Cuba on 29-Jan, going on holiday without a child for the first time for nearly 20 years, so tornadoes, blizzards and pestilence will be rained down on Gatwick on that day. We will also inevitably miss all the snow over the following fortnight. Though I'll be sorry to miss the fun, I'll raise a mojito or 72 to the forum   8)

     

    Wow! :shok: Good call from Simon Keeling of Weatherweb.net! His summary of the MJO thingy was spot on and so was yours about leaving the country and snow arriving :shok:  Have a great holiday. Parts of America are having some snow flurries at the moment. :D

    Hmm. BBC weather app shows 9c max for me Wednesday. Thursday looks colder but dry and then the cold continues but I'm concerned that PPN will be nowt so no snow in Norwich. We often are on that cusp of two far inland to miss costal showers but not inland enough for real cold temps. Will be interesting few days.... or weeks if the cold sticks around.

    Plenty of occlusions and troughs pushing through the UK giving the risk of showers, again snow is a distinct possibility.

    I don't think the Meto/BBC are going to get drawn into any regional show predictions this early, they never do, as it's far to early to see exactly where any showers will fall.

    Very wise. It should be said that no forecast has called significant snow for London either - nothing to get excited about in our region at this juncture

    Looking cold but dry yet again I fear!

    Not true I'm afraid. They are happy to call for snow in Scotland/NW Eng and the usual spots favoured in this NW dominated winter

    Not really tbh. Calling snow in the NW is a far simpler job in this setup than calling it elsewhere, that's not to say it isn't possible though.

    The warnings at the moment are out specifically for areas mainly exposed to the north westerly winds. Seems logical to me, they will only place warnings up for other areas when they have confidence in a organised band of snow crossing the UK to affect other areas or even now-casting events.

    Everything is possible - but it isn't currently looking likely in our region. I will bet there is no meaningful snow in London I.e. Snow which allows you to go sledging (so 3cm+). I am basing that on the model output rather than hope casting.

    Euphoria then despondency, always within hours of each other.

    Steve Murr is keeping a low profile and that for me is a baf omen for wintry weather in our area.

     

    He just posted in the model thread!!!! It's going to turn cold, there's a risk of snow - if that's your thing enjoy it and stop looking for bad news/the end of the cold/a reason for 'despondency'.

    Well you're brave for making that call because the cold spell is yet to start and is forecast to last for much of next week too, so you're using model output to predict snow at 168 hours+... You may of course be right and certainly in a nw/northerly setup the SE is never going to be in prime position, but the better bet would be to wait and see what comes up.

    Snow is my thing. Am no expert but so many contradictory postings that it sometimes feels there is a bit of trolling going on.

    You bokes have a difficult time moderating this good site, but sometimes think you are not strict enough.

    Contradictory posting means people have a differing opinion - we've all met people who have a glass half empty attitude, and people who have a glass half full attitude. So just because some individuals display those different tendencies and voice different opinions I don't think it makes them trolls. 

     

    What you can do is report posts you think are a problem though and we'll certainly look into it.

    Anyway here is the Euro 4 forecast out to it's furthest time (T48h)

    15012900_2700.gif

    Showers pushing East/south east so again the potential for some wintry showers during the early hours on Thursday morning. The showers look to be falling mainly as snow on here.

    Backed up by some decent 850 temperatures

    15012900_2700.gif

    And dew points

    15012900_2700.gif

     

    Still calling for a dusting in places by Thursday morning.

    METO now thinking end of next week a breakdown to less cold, whereas that had been mid next week.

    Best way to enjoy this cold spell is not get to hung up on whether it will snow and exactly what time.

    We will likely have between 7-9 days potential and even then a snowy breakdown couldn't be ruled out either.

    Will we have bucketload? Unlikely. But reasonably confident of at least some snow.
