 GFS doesn’t want much on Monday night but  does have potential  and Mett/BBC seem quite confident.

GFS does show a little snow for Wednesday morning but with a very tenuous atmospheric profile. Freezing levels are low but between 1000–5000 ft the temperature is only around -1. Anyway that’s 4 days away

I'm starting to think it's my fault, I keep going to bed on a Friday thinking I really must get the cars cleaned tomorrow cos they are both filthy and it's doing my head in, hence it rains every Saturday!!!

Sleet here at the moment turning into heavy rain. Snow line looks to be over 200metres today.

haha - we'll see.

6Z gfs again brings plenty of snow but im not sure i believe GFS precip charts even at 24 hours, unless its rain when of course it will always be right.

Enjoy the game today, 2500 making the short journey from Oldham, should be a cracking atmosphere, our fans are amazingly vocal esp away from home.

That’s back in the day when we used to get snow.

i think i’d struggle to make anything from what we’ve got on the ground now unless I put it in a glass, stick some red dye in it and sell it as strawberry slush.

usual irony is that if the amount of rain that has fallen in the last couple of hours had been snow we’d have had the heaviest fall for several years but it wasn’t and the roads were like rivers.

all eyes on tomorrow.

Heavy sleet here. Was rain but its clearly got melting flakes on the car windscreen.

 

No grren or pink on the radar either so proves it can be relied upon.

At 2c this morning it was snowing, at 2.5c now it is all rain without even a bit of sleet.

oh the joy of the north west’s most common import, the mild sector :wallbash:

 Ppn type is computed using NWP and METAR obs.

850s were negative earlier, now positive so no surprise there.
