I still think there will be a little evaporating of some snow, at least for places that don't get a good base cover

Frost yesterday morning, but it disappeared as soon as the Sun hit it

Considering the carnage that follows a little wintry spell, i think the infra-structure of the Uk, is about to get testing big time, from the weather

Funnily enough I had pretty much the same response. I  just mentioned being prepared on a car journey.  I  said "Find out the hard way then":wallbash:

Reminds me of some of these blokes you see walking around in shorts and flip flops in March. They see a bit of sunshine and think it' summer. and  look at a few daffodils and think Winters over. :D

BBC weather.....a disgrace.  Thin wedge of Eastern seaboard seeing very mild, most of N America in the freezer but they talk of NYC mild/warmth.  Classic propaganda as the layman will say.....really warm in America.  Shte

 

BFTP.

Lol, or because the +26C was a new February record temperature in New York and a big population centre so thought it was a point of interest to mention, whereas the cold in other areas is normal or not record breaking?

The thought of 'propaganda' probably didn't even cross their mind.

Actually the last time I remember them talking about USA weather (may have been occurrences since, I don't watch all forecasts), was them talking about severe cold/snow earlier this winter with -39C being a record for a certain location...

My husband is the same,I've been trying to warn him all he says is "yes dear" , nods , but with a glazed look in his eyes as it is weather related.

Well I've got my stock of favourite goodies in, 5 mile walk to nearest town, I will savour every bite. mawhahahah.

I am driving up from London to Fort William on Saturday 3rd of June looking at the charts it may be a challenging journey. Definatly something to keep a close eye on as the time gets closer.  My BMW is not the most snow friendly car.  On the plus side if I make it it it looks like I will have plenty of opportunity of putting my snow blades to good use!  

3rd is a Sunday, month until Wimbledon!

Too far off to take it seriously but If that low forms I hope it’s more like last nights run. Brings the warmer temps in too soon on this. I’m heading to the east coast of Yorkshire Friday so I’m hoping to see some insane snow amounts. Well if I make it there!

Ian McCaskill began his famous Feb 1991 "grim outlook" forecast by first highlighting the expectional warm temperatures in the eastern US. 

Such to see such nonsense talk of "propaganda" on this website, which is insulting to these professional forecasters.

I've got to drive fromLeeds to Newcastle on Monday,returning Wednesday.  Should I take a shovel?

I’d be postponing the trip, if possible. Imagine being stuck on a motorway for hours in that cold. The showers look lively for that part of the UK.

Yes I would kill that trip now, don't think the highway boys will be wanting to dig you out of the snow, they will be struggling as it is.

And so the incredible output continues unabated. As the back end of next week creeps into high-res, we'll get a good idea of quite how severe this could end up. It could be quite something based on this morning's output with that approaching low threatening, although I'm guessing this is more likely to end up going further south than currently modeled.

As expected we're now getting the MetO firming up on the locality of potential disruption. We now have 5-10cm maxes quoted locally for both Mon and Tue. Not sure my location will see quite that, but would be surprised to see less than 5-10cms across these two days. Somewhere in the warning zone for Mon and Tue is going to get a pasting, and that's before Wed/Thu are done with us.

 

Certainly, the language they're using is consistent with some huge accumulations, so I'd expect more localised amber warnings to start appearing over the weekend. The mention of rural locations being cut off would probably translate to, what, 20-30 cms at least? That is a worrying prospect for many and we should remember that. If Wednesday and Thursday provide similar accumulations, somewhere is going to be buried by the time the week's out.

All very interesting for us weather geeks. Aside from the obvious fun, there's a very tough week approaching for many, with the obvious risk to life on the roads and very difficult commuting conditions.

If uppers are likely to be as 91 how come we are not going to be getting the snow that we did in 91. If the cold pool is of similar depth. Perhaps low pressure was closer by in 91. I am not saying we wont get snow, just that in 91 there was a strong signal of heavy persistent snow from the start

Thanks for sending the jet so far south, weather Gods. It's raining and 16°C in the Canaries now. Who do I complain to?

I have a feeling us in Skegness could end up cut off a lot of the predicted snow is aiming at us. Anyone i've spoke to has dismissed it as just a bit of "cold rain" 😣

I remember back in 91 we had a few kinks in the isobars then. Looking at the latest charts something similar is looking likely this time round so looking very positive!

He's forecasting from the day before the event. Wait until Sunday/Monday forecasts to possibly see similarities.
