Meto now showing snow showers on Tuesday here. 

Just an observation - the fatball feeders in the garden are emptying in days rather than weeks and birds like thrushes and corvids who ignore them are decimating the fatballs!

Nature knows! :D

animals are very receptive creatures...

If that bloody front on Tuesday stalls 10 miles west of me turning Reading into a winter wonderland, but keeping us green, there will be tantrums ??

Don't worry I think it may stall further west than that, reading will miss out too.

According to that TWO forecast that someone posted, snow might spread from the east later next week...I dare say that, for that to happen, things will have to get pushed away to the west. The GFS certainly isn't indicating anything like that...YET.

Keep watching the models and enjoy the drizzle, eh?:shok:

It can happen

PTB 8 ( the most extreme ) shows this at 114 with the Atlantic hitting the buffers west of Ireland

I think a trough on the fax charts will move across us on Sunday, so maybe snow for all from that.

Also, I know things are looking dry at the moment, but disturbances in the cold flow cannot be discounted. I think these can crop up at any time too.

I’m not so sure it’s looking dry actually this region will do best for convective snow showers / possible streamer(s). With snow on ground it won’t melt really, nights will be very cold -10C possible quite widely in rural locations. With the flow looking slack it looks perfect for some really low minima.

The models IMO are notorious for downplaying convective PPN. It’s very much a nowcasting thing.

I nicked this off Nick :D  Potential for some serious amount of snow in most eastern counties even where @alexisj9 is!
