First one from me.

it’s not snowing, first time have said that since first thing this morning when i woke up and it wasn’t snowing.

it probably won’t snow tomorrow either but Sunday is going to see the heaviest snow of the winter IMBY, guaranteed to happen as on Sunday I’ll be in someone’s else’s back yard where they get even less no snow than I do.

Would you like a different story tonight?

You get caugjht in the worst blizzard since 62/62 and all the hotel rooms are full in Buxton. The power has failed and your car has run out of fuel. Even McDonalds is closed and the kids are driving you mad. ITV, Sky and all the other news organisations are powerless to travel to Buxton as the conditions are too bad for helicopters to attempt a flight. Edit  The pubs have run out of beer and spirits.

 

Please continue....

Just had a look at wunderground for my location and it is suggesting a very snowy day here at 200m- pretty much heavy snow showers all day with 1-3 inches accumulating.

I suspect that is derived from GFS so i will be circumspect , however, its the most bullish i have seen for MBY for a good while, its normally one of the more cautious forecasting sites so who knows.

Think a lot will depend if any streamers setup, we surely are due an irish sea streamer heading towards greater manchester!!

The meto app for moorside oldham is beautiful, it really is, heavy snow all day with temps not going above zero.

The caveat again being the apps are not the most reliable, still, id rather it showed that than nothing.

FWIW GFS18Z ramps up the uppers even more with -9  uppers now across the region- thats 515 Dam- no way should it be marginal anywhere if thats correct.
