Went to the Pennines in the end. Should have gone to Teesdale, but there wasn't time, so settled for Weardale. Couple of shots...  

Here you go... I ventured fully out. 27991638_1593131500722016_1995411088115499008_n.mp4

Have to say the SE thread better than any soap opera. They're attacking each other cos some have snizzle and some dont, the place is in melt down.  Thank God for regionals and happy to see that w

Is there any chance some of the knowledgeable people in this region can give us any hope? 

All the other threads seem to be southern based.

I hope we can see some of the white stuff next week.  

I will do an update over the weekend for next week, very topsy turvy the out-put at the moment. 

And to be fair, pinpointing the low pressures for next week will be very hard, making snow predictions impossible a couple of days out with very fine margins between rain/snow etc

Yellow warning for Ice issued

Between 01:00 Sun 27th and 11:00 Sun 27th

  • Durham
  • Northumberland

Icy stretches possible early on Sunday.

What to expect

  • Probably ice on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, making for slower journeys
  • Increased likelihood of accidents and/or injuries from falls

Further details

Following clearance of overnight rain and snow, ice may form quite widely, primarily on untreated surfaces. A cover of 1- 2 cm snow may also affect some upland routes, chiefly above 300m elevation.

I have a feeling next week is going to be very hard to watch as we miss out JUST on the snow. I Know the low isn't positioned exactly yet but normally in these situations its a southerly encounter. 

I guess this is why the cold and banter thread is alive and kicking.

Why does the GFS always have a snow dome above us ? 

I would settle for just one day of proper snowfall, time will tell.

I dare not post in the model thread this year, some proper weird people getting the hump over something that may or may not happen!

Yes,a few flakes coming down here at the moment.

 

Certainly an interesting week coming up,and a forecasting nightmare!

Yeah light snow here, have to say the accuweather minutecast app was spot on even when the radar looked fruitless here for 7am, when I checked 3hrs earlier. For now

Tuesday and into Wednesday seems to have the most focus in the mad thread atm the track of the low is proving very tricky could be further north and bring more of the UK into the snow zone or  it could be further south and take the bulk of it into mainland Europe as well as that we could also have some fronts moving in from the northwest

The beeb say Tuesday & Thursday will have heavy snow showers in Darlo though precipitation percentage doesn't get higher than 50% so it could still go either way

The GFS ens for Newcastle is clearly trending less cold as we head through the opening part of February which is at odds with the met office longer range text forecast

Back end of the coming week has the highest chance of snow going by the snow row

My thoughts:

But first, today is getting very windy and it certainly feels cold in the wind. As the low in N Sea moves south the winds are veering more NNE which is pushing the band of showers inland more and this will give sleet/snow in places this afternoon.

Keep getting little flurries here in aycliffe at only 90m asl.

 

Tuesday night has greatest risk of snow to the south of our region with a couple of hours of snow from an occluded front associated with low to the south.

Thursday is our best chance of widespread and lying snow, but this may turn to rain if low pushes milder air further north.

 

Inbetween these some wintry showers could pop up with cold nights.
