    Im thinking the METO will put out an amber warning soon, rain means no gritting can be done so roads could become awful should even a small amount lie...maybe the east of our region would see this too.

    I think amber is hopeful... :rofl:

    Lets wait for it to turn to sleet first eh. :hi:

    Your all taking to much notice of these weather apps. They are next to useless and not meant for enthusiasts like us with time better spent on looking at radars and temperature gauges. My own take is

    There's quite a rash of showers over Japan, they might make it this far?

    Good morning everyone .  Just before I post  The amazing to weather phenomena that I've witnessed this morning ,  I'd like to say Ian Ferguson  if you read this and see this picture you have

    Right I have to go and teach for an hour.....I fear that snow hope references will somehow pop into a discussion on germination techniques and greenhouse elf and safety. Could be the quickest session ever!

    To our SE I don't think it's hopeful, rush hour wet snow is really not good.  Even if it's only a few mm of the stuff - I don't think our region will get Amber, but the east of it could get some snow so you never know.

    The meto will be monitoring it closely and not want to install panic if not necessary of course.

    Yep, going to take this opportunity to get some work done as watching climbing temperatures is about as much fun as Ebola

    METO and BBC web now back to 2 hours of heavy snow - I've never seen so much flip flop, I can't see it changing back to 3 unless the front stalls a little

    2 hours is still not bad though. Especially if it's big wet flakes!

    I have my solution....I've got lots of pics of my garden covered in snow, lots taken from the perspective of just outside the French windows, so.....if I get the best looking one with the deepest snow printed on a roller blind, I can just unfurl it when the forecast fails to deliver the dream. Other than a couple of confused spaniels excitedly wanting to play outside, what could possibly go wrong?
