Theres no simple answer Snowball!

 

I would say yes, but it's like shooting a rifle at a moving target, it could land anywhere. Like Daniel said a few posts back we are probably 2 miles apart, if that and I just had snow, he had nothing.

Hi Steve. 

 

How do you see that UKMO Day 6 chart going forward? i.e - longevity of cold?

 

Also worth noting that this afternoon's GEFS seem to be sniffing out a possible Easterly later next week. Your thoughts?

 

Cheers.

lol raining and this a cold spell? :/

I appreciate your frustration, but others (myself included for the first time since March 2013) have seen a decent amount of snow falling with much of it sticking, and it's also very early on in the cold spell.

But even if it does, Alex Deakin reiterated a few minutes ago that by the stage it reaches the South East, the snow will be confined to the hills. So maybe the less cold air (which is forecast for Friday) will already be in place?

To be fair they werent keen on some settling snow in some places this afternoon...

Very uncertain. Its going to be a nowcast again.

Tis very Interesting that areas that are along the Estuary have not really had anything due to marginality issues, North Kent, South Essex etc etc whereas head a bit further North or South and Snow seems to have stuck quite readily, these things always interest me much like the 2009 Polystyrene Ball Snow Incident on the 2nd February when Surrey got foot of snow and other areas never even had anything settle!

Oh god don't Paul.

The day where we should of got clobbered 80's style.

It does appear to me on a more South-Easterly track rather than South through Ireland/Wales..

Agreed the track at the moment is good - I actually see it to narrowly miss South West. :oops:

Largely rained in Croydon for an hour now clear skies. Bit of wet snow. Croydon has very variable elevation so it's clearly made a big difference, as the wife reports laying snow on the main roads in Shirley.

The problem with Polar Lows is they have a habit of decaying rapidly as soon as they hit land. Without a warm water source they just die.

Best I think we can hope for is some shower trains out of it funneling through the Cheshire Gap/Wales.

I remember getting a Taxi and he was talking about it saying we could easily get a foot.

 

Woke up to a thaw and sleet.

I installed my weather station in Sept 2013 and this afternoon I've recorded the lowest air pressure yet - 977.3mb! It didn't even get that low during the storms we had last winter...

Interesting as that is the same for me, from midnight the pressure has dropped like a stone , bottomed out at 974 - rain here but the temperature is now dipping away fast at +1 with DP+0.7

Been in a meeting all afternoon at work with floor to ceiling windows. About 2pm it came over SO dark and started snowing quite heavily. Only for about 5 mins or so but was lovely to see my first snowfall of this winter. I work in Slough :)

Yh but we made up for it the next winter with 34cm of level snow from nearly the same set-up, swings and roundabouts it seems, that Inversion that screwed us in 2009 after all those snowless winters was hard to swallow though, but just goes to show just how much has to fall into place for the magical white stuff!

Can't believe that's nearly 6 years to the day , was clued to this forum most of the night , place was buzzing with various reports around the region from S Murr Boooms to your tiny snow balls . I was luck I max out had the biggest snowfall ever , 10 inches , but if I recall the tables turned a bit in jan 13 when that snow fall occuled in your region dumping a decent amount

Sadly feels since 2010 we are slipping back in 90's type winters

Personally I feel this Polar low is going to hit NW England and track towards our region. My current thinking is in a line from my location SE towards London/Essex.
