A  beautiful winters day here blue skies arctic airstream, fells etched white , lovely, biting wind. We had a slight dusting first thing, but all the shower activity has been to our SW.

My eyes are turning to tomorrow, wind is going to change to a westerly, and I suspect we will pick up quite a few showers as the day wears on, just when everywhere else starts to see them diminish. BBC forecast is showing some snow tomorrow evening..

Sunday - very messy, a wait and see picture, would be good to have a couple of inches - I remain optimistic, from an imby perspective could do with the front edging about 100 miles north but can't be greedy and this wouldn't suit southern parts of the region as it would very marginal, alas the region is just about on the right side of marginal.

Euro4 seems ok it pushes precipitation northwards fine. Heaviest stuff over Wales

It is very good for your area, Liverpool, Cheshire and the Pennines.

Question. Does Manchester airport cancel there flights in advance of the amber weather warning? I'm catching a plane to Tenerife at 10AM Sunday.

No.

It would cost the airport thousands of pounds for a weather warning that could not happen.

It's a snow shadow.  When it's rain it has no problem dumping it's stuff over Greater Manchester and it's conurbations.  Still hopefully we'll see a period of falling snow on Sunday, but expect other parts especially the peaks and tops of pens will see quite a bit if the forecast holds true.

If we all get in our cars ,face west,accelerate fast to increase Earth s rotational speed thus increasing the weather systems angular momentum further north. :D

I like your thinking

I think Greater Manchester will be just about be in the sweet spot on Sunday, of course the rain/snow shadow could still be an issue. As it stands Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside, North Central Wales, North & East Midlands (Peaks Derbyshire) & perhaps South Yorkshire look to be the best places for some disruptive snow.

Its like this every snow event it's only the times it's not forecast we in Merseyside seem to get any. We had absolutely nothing here in my part of st Helens even tho some areas of my time claim to have had some snow.
