Right then. Haven’t caught up with this thread yet so these are just my initial thoughts. I have no shame in saying that this is a rather imby post because it has to be as the coastal strip will be experiencing different conditions to inland next week regardless of what happens. 

 The first thing that strikes me is the impressive lapse rates that we will have from Tuesday morning onwards,with 500 mbar temperatures constantly between -35 and -40; so potential for some very lively showers. Lightning will occur probably quite frequently around the area, especially during the night and in the coldest pockets of air.

850 mbar temperatures do not seem to me to be conducive for coastal falling snow all the time, so I am only expecting to see snow in very heavy and/or prolonged showers. At the very least though I’m expecting a rarther interesting week of  convection with showers of hail, graupel and sleet, with wet snow at times.

Friday night looks interesting to me if forecasts continue to suggest winds veering northerly; I can see a snow event for the coast at that point. 

 In summary, I am not expecting any lying snow here except for possibly an hour or two here and there, although I expect coverings of hail and graupel to be rather persistent.  I do expect to see falling snow but only transiently.  Apart from that, looking forward to the convective potential and to reading other reports from across the region even though they will most likely make me jealous. :-) 

Quick one from me bit busy.

Spot on mate, pretty much agree with you on what will from from the sky around these parts. Maybe a better chance when nights falls. Interesting what you say on the SST's.

 

Snow Watch for the region.

Still consistently moving closer with time.

A bit further on, keep an eye out for a potential spell of snow Weds eve, no time to elaborate and it may well miss us but here it is.

I live in Bolton but we tend to get lumped in with manchester in forecasts even though our weather is usually noticeably colder during cold spells. But my Meto app and and other app are both still saying rain until Friday. I’m finding it hard to believe that will be right?

Which app NWS?

I live near Burnley at 220m.

My Meto app says rain too, apart from sleet on Tuesday night.

I usually ignore it though because it's really really poor in my experience.

Down to t81 now for the first sign of snow showers for some.

Showers of hail, graupel, sleet & snow start to spread and grow in intensity, I fancy some lucky parts are going to do very well (can see Will jumping up & down). Should be fun for most whatever falls really, it's a belter of a Northwesterly!

There's that band of possible snow zipping across the more southern parts of the region again, one to definitely keep an eye on.

Oh now GFS 12z showing winds backing off-shore Wednesday night as that little low crosses. This could be very very interesting if it occurs like that. My anticipation increasing now for next week.

My wife' a nurse and Tameside expect her to turn up regardless of the conditions. That' going to be an arduous walk of 11 miles round trip.

She'll get there just in time to set off home and vis versa.

Anyway, can't have Will stealing all the snow. I'll settle for 7" by early Thursday.

Normally we seem to be chasing a small window of opportunity before wind direction veers/showers die out etc. However, next week looks like repeated days of opportunities. What could possibly go wrong.......lol

I like Jo Blyth on Granada but where the hell did she get that forecast from.

Tuesday and Wednesday giving a chance of a few wintry showers and graphics showing nothing but rain.

looks like it’s a case of sod the computer models and experts on Netweather and wait for the Ox or Eno to put the final nail in the coffin for our region.
