    Dear Snow, Why are you just going to Staffordshire? All they have over there is oatcakes and speed cameras. Much nicer here, why haven't we seen you for 4 years? Remember December 2010? We had so

    Phew, made it......

    Couple of videos from my drive into the Peaks today when I had to turn round as conditions got worse. No doubt in something better I could have gone on but in a Citroen C2, I have to be careful as the

    Pouring with rain here, wind blowing a gale outside. Feels like a proper winter day. 

    Edit: Are we in line for that deepening low out in the Atlantic or is it more likely to hit France? Can't find anything about it on here.

    wouldn't say winters day, I'd say more like autumn

    this looks interesting as a battle sets up this time next week, setup on this run too far east, but east midlands will see a dumping if this run comes off, FI though

    Just got a feeling that the band of precipitation that is forecast to cross our region Saturday Night, could produce some wet snow.

    Those higher up may see some wet snow tonight. Maybe, if I jump high enough I may be able to catch a few flakes myself!

    A few sleet showers here around midnight and shortly after.

    It's a sign of hard times when I'm posting about every passing sleet shower in the middle of winter!

    Mean while over on the Model thread mayhem has broken out as the GFS has finally climbed onto the back of the Euros, and has produced an absolutely stonking run for us!

    It shows light snow flurries starting later this week and then produces several days of continuous snow  (2 -3) followed by snow showers from the East.   Guess that a foot would be widespread  :yahoo:

    I always thought the GFS was the best  model!:D:D

    Whats the betting that the Euros now pull back!

    Anyway its cheered up my sunday!

    Hi there DWW...

    Back from my winter dreams....

    Lets wake this forum up!!!

    The 12;00 GFS is still very cold and getting even colder going out to the end. (2 weeks!) of the run. It is not as snowy as the 06;00  previous run.

    METO is remaining constant and unwavering, although it is  now suggesting a slow moving area of snow for next weekend.:yahoo:

    GEM just doesn't want it to warm up.. ever I :D:cold:think!

    All models are now pointing towards a blocked easterly spell  for most of February.:)

    ECM still to come .... Don't let it backtrack and I think we are on.:diablo:

    The colder air is now expected to be arriving on Wednesday.

    They are foreseeing a rain to snow event for the Peak District north. Each run is seeing progressively colder upper temperatures reaching the UK. Could we be lucky even earlier than the weekend?.

    Wha-hey guys... This could be the best cold  spell in years.:D:D:D:hi:

    MIA:yahoo:

    Right now ---- lets have no negativity from the Staffordshirdshire area  :friends:

    Following on from my post yesterday.

    ECM brought everyone down (I must have put a jinx on it), with a total outlier . Where did that come from?.

    However it returned to the fold this morning. Still very cold this weekend and we could well have 2 - 4inches on sunday.

    After then it starts to get  more complicated,  with the Azores high trying to get in on the act.

    Could go two ways now -

    1) Ridges over the UK, and it is likely the cold spell will be temporary, though with hard night frosts. 

    2 ) It goes further west and north. Then it could be game on... With a link up between the highs over Iceland and Scandi we could be in the freezer for a month or more.

    Still we will have a 4 or 5 day cold spell now to look forward to, with increasing opportunities for snow around the MIdlands.

    So lets keep the mood high in here.:yahoo::cold::)

     

    Edit just to say we hit a low of -3,4C this morning, a high of 5.3C at lunchtime, and we are now dropping to 4.5C as the heavy rain (with a bit of sleet on car windscreen) swept in one and a half hours ago.
