    I’m sensing that too. My flight home from Spain to Liverpool is Sunday thought I’d missed all the fun. Fingers crossed it may extend a day or two. Some suggestion certainly it may prolong and Friday Saturday is starting to look interesting

    Yes of course the sun speeds up melt rates, however across most of the north west temperature have reached above freezing today, so thawing in the shade also. The models proved quite accurate with this. Here are a selection of temperatures across the region (official stations, from weathercast), even Leek at over 300m almost reached above freezing. The coldest air is further east and south of our area.

     

     Max 2.1 imby but mostly below 1. Very little thaw in the shade here.

    Looks like the Met Office have extended the cold weather for our region

    Regional Forecast for North West England

    Headline:

    Bitterly cold with scattered snow showers.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    A mixture of clear spells and scattered snow showers will continue this evening and overnight. Showers will be heaviest and most frequent in the Pennines with growing accumulations. A widespread severe frost is forecast overnight, feeling bitterly cold. Minimum temperature -9 °C.

    Wednesday:

    Similar cold conditions will continue with a mixture of snow showers and sunny spells. Snow showers will be heavy at times, particularly over higher ground. Feeling bitter with strengthening winds. Maximum temperature 0 °C.

    Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

    Heavy snow showers will continue in the Pennines with significant accumulations. Windy on Thursday and Friday but with showers becoming less intense. More snow is possible later on Saturday.

    It mentions heavy  snow showers for tomorrow and Thursday and Friday and possibility of something more Saturday. Hardly crap

     As today ,tomorrow Thursday and Friday offers nothing here with a vague notion that a system will get this far without stalling ,I'll bet my car on  it not delivering anything here  ,and that's   Only 1 month old ,lol

    Showers that have made it over the Pennines have been dying a death once they have got to lower ground though that shower north of Manchester would have my name on it if it got here.

    thursday and Friday doesn’t look to exciting currently with only flurries forecast so far?
