Beautiful morning,bit breezy but i'll take it,roll on spring,soz guy's,but im fed up with this so called winter,absolute pants in my opinion,our winter's have changed dramatically in the last few years

i completely agree, we obviously live very close to each other but its been such a dire winter with not much excitement. I do admit that the little bit of snow that we did have was a little exiting but all its done is rain and be overcast which is very depressing. when its like that it completely bums me out no wonder why people get so depressed  .When  its raining and windy you cant do as much and get stuck in the house more. I do believe the weather plays a huge part in our daily lives and how we function. At least today has brought us some sun  which is lovely to see, makes you feel better when you get up :yahoo:

Yes - Glasgow city centre is a slush fest yet most places 5 miles away to the North, South, East and West have snow on the ground. 

I live 7 miles South of Glasgow City Centre and have a couple of inches so far. (see attached) 

Looks like you could be joining the fun in the near future going by the latest charts - Easterly might be on the table! 

Look forward to seeing some snow pictures in this thread before Winter is over! :cold:

According to met office snow is forecast for the Chiltern hills tonight.  Might only be a dusting but could wake up to a light covering in the morning.

Could well see a covering. Hefty snow showers being modelled. Hit and miss however.

Don’t post them in here, it just exacerbates the agony. :rofl:

five years precisely it will be next week since I’ve seen a covering that’s appalling must be the worst in the region?

not to bad at the moment in there. but there are some who are doubting the coming of the "easterley", as they say in the mad thread "we need more runs", must have been visiting it to often as I am beginning to speak like them now, very sad !!! :rofl:

It's another bite of the cherry at a chart that screams potential:rofl:

I for one aren't too excited about an Easterly, it feels like we've been chasing this Easterly since about Mid-December. 

Chance of a few snow showers through this afternoon, very much a radar watching day for us down here. Clouds have that "snow like" tinge to them, they're just not thick enough at the moment to produce anything.

Currently, it's dry and mostly sunny with a 24mph westerly wind - temp of 6C. I wouldn't rule out waking to a wee dusting, first thing tomorrow afternoon morning!:D

PS: Where have all the fonts gone?

This northwesterly must be pretty strong quite windy here, often get nothing but a small breeze in a north westerly, sheltered by the downs. No showers reaching this corner though as normal from this direction.

Ah chin up guys!

We still have a good 6 weeks of prime time for our snow chances (not including March) I'm not saying we will get any but the possibility is certainly there, as it always is this time of year in Mid Winter.

It's been 5 years since I had any laying snow in Sussex, if anything I see that as increasing my chances of getting some this winter, just due to law of averages. Like if you roll a dice, eventually you roll a 6.

The other thing I will be doing is driving to the snow up north if they have good amount in next few days/weeks, nice road trip with the kids and a night in a hotel somewhere be good family weekend away :)

Today was like days I remember as a kid, hopeful for one of those isolated showers, lots of dirty cloud around but nothing. If you'll looking for desperate, I remember getting up early one saturday because there was talk of snow showers, and I missed it - the fence was wet and all but it was only snow shower that year and I missed it.
