    Haha just saw that myself, Pom. Looks great for us in the west but all will see snow at some point in the North.

    The ones in the south of england shouldn't be complaining to much.....looks like some place could get a good dumping when the precipitation merge with the cold air.

    Looking good for us still.....thursday evening looks interesting.

    Im sure there is many variables - but what is the optimum temp for it to snow ??

     

    For laying snow, you need 0 degrees or below from where the snow leaves the cloud until it reaches the ground.

    The dew point has to be zero or below for the snow to stick on the ground. You can have falling snow with air temperatures above zero.
