My thoughts only, I think the warm sector will be squeezed out and they’ll be hardly any rain, lots more snow than rain.   ☔️ 🌨🌨🌨🌨🌨🌨  but then again it’s 4 to 5 days away.....GOD that sounds great :yahoo:......NOT the usual 10 daya output 🥴 🤪

It's heavy precipitation as well so should accumulate quickly even if it will be wet snow

Obviously keeping a serious eye on next week, though if the warm sector is going to be anywhere it'll be right over my house. 😛

Glorious winter's day today, though. Had some spare time so went for a nice long walk. Always good seeing the magic 20,000 steps on the pedometer -- I don't get that too often! Fantastic clear, cold air and almost unbroken sunshine. Max only 4.5 °C but who cares, it was lovely. If only this day had arrived before the rain yesterday had turned the side paths to mud slicks. Ah well.

So, remember when I said a few weeks back that we were bound to have a blizzard on 17th January because we were having some windows replaced?

So, I was wrong huh?

Um, the fitters didn’t come today after all. They’ve rescheduled for.... you guessed it... Tuesday 22nd Jan 😂😳😉

Feel underwhelmed by this current cold spell unless you live on top of a mountain there is no meaningful snow predicted. Met and BBC gave us around 3c and sleet and rain all the way to next Thursday. But in the Mod thread they think it will be Narnia its very confusing. I think cold spell but nothing exceptional and cant see any proper snow falling. Off to Buxton next Tuesday for my Snow fix. Still nice having crisp and cold to walk the dog.

Do you not think the forecasts just generalise? They can’t get it right for the same day let alone week away. Yes it does get a bit Narnia in the mods at times but just focus on getting cold here then there will be suprises

Yh i know they can chop and change at an instant. But just a bit disappointing at current projections. Possible Sleet later from mid afternoon but I know it could still go either way. I think Feb could be the month where it gets really special and snowy.

Okay, campers, rise and shine and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cold out there today!

Mate, this cold spell could eclipse anything we've seen for twenty years... just like pulling teeth to get there.

I expected nothing but rain today, and at least there is leading edge.. now if would just anchor up a bit we might be in business.

Do you think it will still be snow if it gets here.

Yeah, but i'm trying to work out if it will turn to rain, it's not terribly heavy so we cant rely on evaporative cooling so much.

Either way it's a bonus shot.

Yh evaporative cooling would happen if it was heavy so let's hope it dosent die out an reaches us after dark will help it being all snow.

-4c overnight currently -2c...hard frost overnight, snow still in places sun didn’t reach yesterday....hoping for a little more than a dusting...will keep an eye on the sky later... if models are to be believed south of Peak District could do well out of today...I think it’ll be persistence of precip rather than intensity...we shall see...now casting and uncertainty what makes the weather interesting and sometimes frustrating

Think anywhere around here especially with any height could get snow today and tonight. Not a lot but some

Snow forecast from 12pm here in Stoke, mix of snow > sleet > snow and then rain as milder air pushes in.

Tuesday looks to have had an upgrade from the BBC, now heavy snower showers for the area from the early hours.
