You know that the amber warning is really meant for north east england. We normally do ok when an amber is issued over yorkshire.

Doesn't take much for those organised snow showers drift a bit further north than forecast...

24 hours is a long time:good:

Yep. Amber warnings are the kiss of death for snow chances! The number of times amber warnings for snow in my area have been wrong far outweigh those that have been correct.

Whatever happens is a bonus as I assumed the snow last week would be the end of winter!

Totally agree, been in the posh seats too many times to be moved back into Economy.

Many people believe there is more chance of snow at Easter than at Christmas. Certainly, snow at this time of year is not uncommon. Below are statistics from the Met Office:

Month                  Average Days of Snow

November                          1.7

December                           3.9

January                                7.6

February                              6.8

March                                   4.2

April                                       2.3

Anyone understand why the bbc forecast for Tadcaster is vastly different to the Met office?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/0/2636335

Meant to be making a trip from Todmorden to Tadcaster and back tomorrow!

Hi. It's because the BBC no longer use met office for their forecasts. They lost the contract and so is now from MeteoGroup for TV, radio and website. 

Met still provide warning details though on BBC, very confusing lol!

I know, other half won't be impressed of it snows :-) I foresee much pub time :-)

2 weeks is a long time in weather world, plenty of time for things to change.

No reason to care, just pointing out how many times lately you had an amber warning for snow for it not to happen in reality and a neighbouring county gets it instead...

It is then a plessure to read all the doom n gloom from this thread.

Of course all in bants

Suppose your right to be fair but latest update shows Yorkshire well in the firing line for this one.

So if it snows all day on Saturday, and stops some time Sunday morning will it melt like it did the other thursday or will it hang around for a few days like the first beast, i dont mind it snowing all day saturday as long as i can get across the m62 at 3pm on Sunday

Hills around Whitby are getting a pasting again. Really does seem to be the spot to be if you want to live on the East Coast, yet still have snow. Pity its transport links are almost none existent so living there has to be a pain.

GFS delays the cold some what so we should see light rain turning to snow by about mid morning. Temps at 6am around 3C to 5C so above normal but rapidly fall away to freezing or just below so could cause problems with ice around mid morning.
