    I thought this site might be of interest to some ,its independent weather stations over the UK ,might be a good idea to get live real time weather across the country http://www.weatherstations.co.uk/aws_map.htm

    It's settling now 

    I think snow chances this evening for most of us that live at low-levels will depend very much on how quickly the colder and drier arctic air undercuts the rain from the NW - which will relate to how

    I've only just realised what a bunch of nutters we all are lol. All this drama for a 'bit' of snow .... I've spent hours if not days n days watching all this unfold .....Now all I'm left with is about

    There are a lot of variables required for white fluffy stuff to fall out of the sky, but one of the most important indicators is the 500hPa thickness. This parameter needs to be 528dm or below for the chances of snow to be greater than that of rain. The lower it is the better chance. Here's the chart for 6pm tonight,

    528dm.gif

    All but the far eastern part of Kent is primed for snow by then - even in Eastern Kent it's still 50/50 probability. By 9pm the entire country is under 520dm air where the probability is that stuff coming out of the sky will be snow.

    528dm1.gif

    Of course, the forecast has to verify, and tonights event relies on this colder air arriving before the rain disappears. If the precipitation comes later, that's a good thing as it increases chances that the cold air will arrive before the rain disappears. If the low tracks more southerly, that's a good thing; it's projected warm sector is forecasted to be on it's southern side. If the low is flabby and weaker then the precipitation will be more widely distributed, another good thing, as more people are likely to see snow, albeit armageddon amounts become less likely.

    Indeed. He was a character and as I said above played a star role in one of the biggest LOL moments in NW history. I can't remember the year though, must of 2010 I reckon. Anyone able to dig out that thread?

    Yes would be good to see him back. It will take a sniff of a Thames Streamer to get him on I reckon though...

    Good morning,  south eastern contingent. 

    Just poped in quick. 

    This morning s 6z gfs has potentially the sharpest cold spell/incursion for our little part of the world in many 'a' moons -12/14 850hpas looking distinctive as we move through next week with ample opportunities for convection= precipitation in snow flurry/shower penertation. 

    I'll pop back in later as we move towards a possible back edgr conversion to "at least" falling snow this evening/ tomorrow. ..still lots of resolve on this yet. ..have a good en.
