    Man ECM ensembles are all over the place, still not total agreement on even Sunday yet, though most do agree.

    Most ECM ensembles set up a fairly small area of very large snowfall totals, though the location ranges drastically from each ensemble member. As a rough benchmark though the A3 North eastwards is a decent benchmark, east of that and the totals on a lot of the runs starts to drop quite quickly, there is a sharp gradient between the just too marginal and the 10-20cms of snow barely 50 miles to the west on a lot of runs.

    PS, one run gives a total of 38cms just north-west of London from the two events :)

    MetO has now removed even the traces of sleet for me for Monday, whereas NW has me with 57% of snow for most of the day ?

    You know what will happen. If you travel it will snow and if you decide not to because of possible snow it won't. So the question is how much do you want it to snow?

    Just finishing off looking through the 12z ECM ensembles for Monday, still large uncertainties but at least for the west of the region there IS a majority going for a snow event of some type. A few really go gangbusters (talking 1ft+) but most in the range of 5-15cms in our region (higher totals to the NW of the region). Much smaller chances further east but there really is a ton of time for change still on that front,.

    I see on the radar there's a nice streamer wasting itself in the North Sea. Still I suppose there might be some oil rig workers building a snow man somewhere.:wallbash:

    I guess it could be much worse for me here, just wish the purple could have been extended a good 20-25 miles east.. I do have a small shot at at least a dusting come Sunday morning so i'll be hitting the hay early tomorrow so I can wake up super early (3am-ish) to radar watch and be awake to experience any snow if it arrives before the rain.

    I will try & do a post later but I think monday WILL be the most exciting day of the winter for someone landing 20-30cm of snow - in 50 MPH North Easterlies...

    we will also have a scenario where Monday Say in Chelmsford they are throwing snowballs at each other when in maidstone its pishing down-

    for ease of guidence follow the -1/-2c isotherm line if your North of it your in the jackpot area... ( as well as being in the PPN )

    Yep Steve, most guidance suggests if your just to the west of that snow/rain line then you will have a decent chance at getting quite a sizeable snowfall. Still some things that need to be worked out and there is always a risk of secondary lows forming within both the Sunday and Monday events which will catch the models off guard so we need to watch carefully. I'm feeling quietly happy down in E Hampshire at the moment...
