The end of this coming week looks good though for some snow. Met Office site for my nearest location, Ranmoor, shows light snow on and off from Thursday right through to Saturday so that would be great. Should build up nicely by then. Fingers crossed ;):cold:

I cant help but think these would just be snow flurries Chris, of course there may well be disturbances to enhance precip at time such as UKMO, but I remain skeptical for accumulating snowfall for the time being.

Almost snow here tonight, very heavy sleet! Theres slush on the grass and car windscreens!

Definitely evaporative cooling in effect. Temp dropped from 7c to 3c in a very short space of time. It was heavy though. A nice taster of things to come hopefully! :p:cold:

I thought you would be seeing something wintry over your way given how cold it is here in the lowlands.  

Fingers crossed for Wednesday / Thursday onwards!

Sadly didn't keep it up. Short cold snap coming up sadly won't last into next week now and probably won't get much in the way of snow from it. But at least we can pickle a snow flake if we see one.  Endangered species in the last couple of years.

Saturday is looking quite snowy for our part of the world at the moment.  All subject to change of course but I am certainly not downbeat about this upcoming cold spell.

Here's hoping that everybody gets a bit of the white stuff before we call time on this winter.....

In terms of shower activity we move to a nowcasting situation from tomorrow (radar), pressure being pretty high would tend to suggest little shower activity but we have seen instances where there was more activity than forecast. Generally i'll be happy with a shower or two in the coming days but i don't expect it. 

Saturday is the best possibility as a more organised feature gets in more or less the right place.

afternoon all, very surprising and unforecast heavy sleety shower, left a nice icey mix on the brolly when i done the school pick up, temp dropped rapidly and is now 1.3c dew point 0.1c, here is hoping against hope we might see some snow over the next cpl of days down here.

A really depressing forecast from Paul Hudson just now if you like your cold and snow!  

I just cannot believe how much this cold spell seems to have imploded over the last 24 hours.  

Can we at least squeeze out a covering of snow before the end of the weekend?

Edit - At least the latest ECM run gives us coldies some hope from around mid month!

It  seemed realistic to me?

It is disappointing that those hoping for a good covering of snow are likely to be let down, but in fairness this cold snap didn't promise such an event anyway.

Snow  showers most frequent in the east. I don't believe that any model forecasted more than a  dusting of snow over the weekend. The GFS precip charts are low res so can give the impression of greater snow  chances - whereas in reality we are looking  at snow showers with the greatest chance of accumulation over eastward-facing locations at elevation.

White over here just now but still +0.7C so may not last long.
This will be the pattern I suspect.

 

N York Moors in bets prime spot over the coming days I think for snow.
