    Just wondering. It looks very pink on the NW radar. 

    I did mention it earlier that we been in the pink under radar a lot todsy and not much happened somebody did say to it doesn't always get I right. Always think Kettering  Corby it strange can get loads others don't like between Xmas new year.  Places like wellingborough didn't get much or Peterborough be we got 4 5 inches  other times miss out totally very odd.

    Anyone with a macro lens needs to go and photograph the amazing snowflakes falling right now. This is the best i can do

    So, both hi res models over which whose territory this system is evolving - Hirlam and Arpege (both I would have a lot of respect for) - have very decent accumulations forecast by Friday morning from

    GFS 12z  location of the precipitation tomorow at 06:00. Progress south is near non existent through the day as it tracks east. Whatever we get tomorrow will likely be just the odd dusting.

    I wouldn't worry a bout not seeing anything on radar out in the North Sea - this is convective snow, which I believe means it forms as it comes over the sea. It isn't like Britain's normal snow, ie frontal snow, where you have snow-bearing clouds coming across the sea. this is more sort of forming-as-it-arrives...

    Well the BBC national and regional forecasts looked good for here tonight and tomorrow. Mentioned Shropshire also being affected by the Polar Low. They also said it would be wet snow and would stick more quickly. Slightly less cold air in that low.

    Looks like the end of the week may actually bring two spells of snow. One Thursday night and one Friday.

    i thought the netweather radar was fed from the MET. Ive got them open side by side and they're identical.

    It is, the met office precip graphic is indeed a prediction, however it highlights the chance that this low could expand into a much larger area of precipitation 

    I could have probably worded that post a little better :oops:

    I wonder whether the approaching trough in the N Sea can invigorate shower activity ahead of it?

    its typical, we had a really good snowfall back in early December but it wasnt cold enough to stick around for more than 1 day, now when we get really cold weather we end up getting zilch snow.  can't win.

    I believe the wind direction is likely to shift from a North Easterly to more of a Easterly; this will change distribution.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
