    That truly is outrageous. I hope it's true.

    Let's hope the 0c isotherm is over the region at sea level and not at 300m+

    I think you have a good chance awd.

    Still skeptical about any for us down south I have noticed elevation doesn't help so much in these instances because if your under the warmer air it aint going to make a difference etc unlike a marginal northerly. :nonono:

    You are only down the A36 from me.  Lol.

    With your altitude, you probably have just the same chance as me.

    According to the forecast on my home page, it says I have a 50% chance of snow on Monday. I'd say there's a 100% chance of it being the other 50%.

    Talk about tantalising.....I don't know anything about apps, but a trawl through the MetO website warnings has me 37 miles from the amber area warning for snow and 17 miles from the yellow area warning for snow. Clutching at straws here, but you never know. Also, Filton, which is my nearest MetO observation place has changed from rain to light snow for tomorrow afternoon and evening so I have 3 straws to clutch!

    Prepared for disappointment though!
