Probably!

I have a feeling that Thu/Fri is going  to be like 2010 again. About 2" of snow and it immediately turned to rain and it melted pretty quickly - that was a disaster!

Guess that does seem unlikely, but I simply can't see any good reason for the warning in the CS region to have been removed; the modelling is the same as it was with plenty of signs that showers will make it a long way inland. Given the uncertainty over localised higher amounts, some manner of alert seems fair.

I can see their reasoning though; the warning was only ever there because of the chance of a more organised area of snow moving so far south, which has now gone. So it's a matter of the showers perhaps being underplayed. I can only base this on past experience though; no guarantees.

Snow showers and a more organised area of snow will move SW from the North East/Wash area.

There’s a feature coming in from the North Sea and it seems to be tracking SW we need it track SSW.

I was surprised just now when I got a notification saying the snow warning had been cancelled. Looks like they were just updating it as it’s returned now. 

Just had the same, Tuesday one removed, still one for Wednesday.

All forecasts now showing light snow for early wed and snow all day for Thursday.
its all turned to rain from Friday onwards.

Great sunny day here 5c, with a -0.3c lowest around 6am.

Amber warning has gone up. Not in our region but not a million miles from my location either.

I have a sneaky feeling it will go out with a whimper down here. It's all too marginal! The charts show it, and the MetO forecast backs it up with sleet and rain. Going to need some extra luck from mother nature to mend this one.

I think we’ll get snow Thursday evening and over night in to Friday before, as you said, it turns to back to rain. It needs to be the perfect system for us, coming in before receding off to continent. High risk could be high fail... 

 Just want some time for the kids to play in it! 5 days is a long time in the weather world, anything can happen!

Looks like the Hampshire no snow triangle and the Dorset snow shield have combined into one huge snow shield.

Always the same for our region. There's still time but MO know their stuff and their warnings are, more often than not, spot on. We have to face facts. Snow down here is rare and when it's marginal, it's likely to be rain or sleet. Bring on spring lol

If you go on the met for Friday you will see Southampton rain, Eastleigh heavy snow. Kind of tells you how close this is to call. In fact impossible this far out. A slight movement in track at it could go all rain or all snow. Is it to early for a brandy:D

Thanks for the response i guess it is too early just feeling disappointed. I have no real knowledge of weather but there was so much talk of the SSW and cold siberian air arriving which was going to give a proper cold spell. It has arrived later than what was said and now in the last 24 hra its gone by friday morning. So only 3 or 4 cold days. I dont get how it takes so long to arrive but can go so quick! I havent seen any snow since jan2013...

:wallbash:shambles for the central southern community. But I can’t help thinking that they can’t pin point the precipitation 2 days away. I’m sure they will upgrade us again Tommorow!!!!
