Things are getting exceptionally exciting from Sunday onwards. For many a day it   is a long fetch pretty much straight easterly. Every so often you get a wiggle in the isobars that will enhance showers and result in potentially highly disruptive snow.

We've had the occasional easterly before but it’s only been a direct hit for about 24hrs before turning NEly or SEly.....this is what makes this different as it’s just goes on. In cases like this my experience suggests that Yorkshire is often in the sweet spot.

My home city of Sheffield, Barnsley, Leeds and along the eastern side of high ground is often clobbered by this scenario. We may get that OmG moment when we draw the curtains in morning after morning!

I’ve just done, that’s my ramp, I really held it in for ages but it’s out and I’m relieved! Now breath. Lol

Oh I hope your right! :) this winter has been pretty poor  even though we have had a couple of snow days! people are saying this could be better than 2010! which makes me excited but also have to stay grounded as don't want to be let down so until we have a red warning in place then I'll be happy with 7-9 inches of snow lol :p

How cool would a red warning be!!! ?

We had one over Sheffield in 2013 I think but it wasn’t as bad as forecast, they suggested potentially 60cm over eastern high ground but we still had 20cm .... which is still cool.

Yeah some of those charts for early next week remind me of that amazing spell late November early December 2010.

I'm not greedy in terms of snow but if we could top the 14 inches we had then I would be fairly happy.  :rofl:

I won't complain! and it's set to be 10+ days of cold so least its not gonna melt straight away would be nice to enjoy it for a few days! :) hopefully by saturday we can firm up on details and be very sure what is coming  our way

@Frosty. whats your thoughts on yorkshire doing well outta this cold next week?

Really very well if the models stay in their current trend, the North sea will turn into a snow making machine and with a strengthening easterly flow the snow showers would be driven well inland with drifting / disruption..I expect yellow and red warnings next week.:)

Unless BBC weather are right in which case it will be dry with sunny spells!..completely different to the met office latest update..unbelievable!! To me it looks like an unstable easterly which is also what the models are showing.

Nice to have Frosty contribute to our regional thread. In fact I reckon we've got a decent bunch of knowledgeable people in our region!

 

I remember when I joined this forum in 2010 I used to message frosty and ask him alot about yorkshire lol still got the messages! :) 2010 was the best and its looking highly likely some of us will see a repeat!! :)

Central northern England and being east of the pennines is great for a hopefully snowy easterly!:D

I remember going to bed in Feb 1991 (aged 13) and it was snowing a bit, and in the morning waking up for school. I was living in Bradford at the time. It was 8.30am and my Mum and Dad normally woke me at 7.30am. I wondered by they hadn't woken me, and I drew the curtains............ sharp intake of breath! A true OMG moment that I will remember til the day I die!

Be AWARE the mod thread has gone nuts!!! 

The toy throwing and temper tantrums have started

To be honest we have heard it all before, but so confusing for those like me, who are still attempting to learn!

will it won't it, that is the question......but why oh why is it always snow related? Do we have a hissy fit if it's 20c or 30c, NO we just get on with it.....

I joined this forum in 2010 during an epic snow event, was it fun... hell yes. Will it be cold next week, yes. Will it snow, probably somewhere. Will we all be back next winter, yes for sure because the regional threads are friendly and I enjoy gaining knowledge off the more experienced members. 

Whatever does or doesn't fall out of the sky next week, enjoy the charts and enjoy learning...but remember it's just the weather

Seems to have quietened down on there now. Dunno what they found wrong. Got our first little snow symbol for end of Monday. It's still outside the reliable time frame annoyingly the early push much weakened. From comments earlier in the week the setup should provide plenty of snow showers. We shall see.
