    Southern movement of the snowline- but I just dont buy into any of the hope that snow will fall for the south - south of Bristol anyway. Good old fashioned gut instinct tells me we simply dont have the entrenched cold (yet) and I cannot believe that an atlantic slider diving into an existing trough (that hasnt really yet delivered any proper cold down here) is going to come to anything.

    And if there was even the slightest chance that the system could slide still further south and deliver anything then we would have a met yellow warning. 

    Winter is coming this year I think - but for the south we need to wait for the next wave or even the easterly one thereafter.

    I'm sure we can get away posting in either of them!

    Do you think it will be an all snow event for us north of Oxford?

    I think I'm at the 'knife edge ' and I think the Thames and the Chilterns behind play a huge role. I can often see snow on the chilterns and we have naff all. I am pretty convinced it'll rain here and snow across the river

    Catacol did you not get the memo, good news only :acute:

    joking aside I probably agree with you, but that’s why there’s no pressure for us, anything will be a bonus really!

    I fear you are right Catacol, but we have a chance as colder air feeds back as the system moves through Sun night into Monday.

    Well I guess we get central south news!  You always get the better weather north of Oxford when it comes to snow

    Hi Beasterly! Good to see a few of us in here. Further north of Oxfordshire certainly, closer to here and further south a mix of rain/sleet/snow. But general feeling is a more sleet/snow mix here now.

    Finally back on the forum after disappointing winters last few years and good to see you're still hanging around!

    Setting my alarm to 6am hoping rain/sleet would have turned to snow by then!

    MoW COUNTRY Sunday update: Risk of snow extends a bit further south by tomorrow AM, *roughly* M4 corridor N'ward, but local-level detail will remain impossible until events unfolding. Risk wind gusts 55-70+mph N Devon/Somerset/exposed Bristol Channel during AM needs emphasising.
