So I went to bed last night with big flakes coming down and a good covering although a little slushy in places to then wake up to.....

you guessed it a completely wet floor with no evidence at all of snow lol and a doom n gloom model discussion 

Hi Mark, Just the usual, ‘its just one more run doom team showing themselfs again’ this isn’t directed at you at all, but if you read posters that clearly have intellectual understanding, wisdom and judgement of the output......there would’nt be any doom n gloom in the model thread things are still very rosey for cold and snow.....I’m so, so much looking forward to this weeks wintry weather and what it about to bring us.

Afternoon folks. Hope you all had a good Christmas and happy New Year. So not really had much chance look at forthcoming weather predictions, however keeping hearing people mention snow for next Week, so was wondering as to what we can look forward to for the North Staffs area next Week and in Partic Tuesday / Wed?

Yes, but it is still a bit of a worry that it could change so much in 12 hours. But hopefully the wobbles will wobble back.  as you say the trend is still cold

There is always uncertainty in any output, but you’ve been around long enough to see things change from a beastly to a limping lamb in just a few runs, but this time there is so much to back this trend up (cold and snow) I mean the SSW and so on, the problem is the models are really struggling with what’s happening in the US regarding this storm that’s just starting to show it’s hand.....for now sit back and enjoy this weeks Rain to Snow event (tues) and then the Showers Weds and you never know what Thursday/Friday may bring us.....a very interesting week ahead, ENJOY 😉

So, now the snow risk is mainly gone from Tuesday, although there is a small chance of a cheshire gap streamer on tuesday night.

Shame because I was really thinking we'd actually get a good frontal snowfall early next week, ho hum!

Well, there is NO covering it up. The ECM was on the ball last night and has carried this entire cold spell. We have indeed missed the boat and need to wait for the pattern to recycle - could be a couple of days, could be a couple of weeks. I'm still optimistic though, we will get some sort of snowy spell before winter is out. Though we are starting to get to the point now where we NEED one of these cold spells to actually verify before this winter is tucked into 'one of the biggest let downs in history'. 

For your own sanity though, I'd suggest only taking things as gospel when they get to T72... if you are to take one message alone from this winter...it's not to take days 7+ as anything like gospel. These seasonal models are good to look at...but the chaotic atmosphere continues to make them look stupid, time after time.

Still a long way to go yet to say we've missed the boat, (AGREED 7 days+ don't take a gospel)....but to say ECM was on the ball or even the GFS/UKMO....They are all right or wrong until they verify.

This one run two runs whatever you want to call it, it could easily flip back............At least we're not just watching HP suck over us for weeks on end :lazy: 

Edit, Looking at the 12z ens (WOW STILL)....methinks you've given up on this so-called up and coming cold spell far too early if you ask me.

I'd prefer to reserve judgement until we get this weekend out of the way and see what the 12z on Monday brings.

Yes once we get to a nw airflow we usually do quite well although that won’t show up yet

Feeling very confident that I’ll see snow on Tuesday. Not from the front coming through, although some brief back edge is possible, but from showers following.

The air will be more than cold enough by then; circa -7 uppers, dew points around 0 and falling below by evening, 522 dam.

North Westerlies are very good for snow here (Cheshire Gap streamer) but there will also be troughs in the flow that will increase the shower risk more widely, but particularly across England and Wales.

Check out the troughs (black lines) and position of the 528 dam line (dotted line) on the fax charts.

Also check out the GFS precipitation charts for Tuesday. These are low res and so can make showers and snow look more extensive than is actually the case, however, I find that the GFS is better than most models for picking up streamers and showers.

I think the main shower risk is Tuesday afternoon, with the shower risk dying away early Wednesday.

Automated forecasts beginning to pick up on the risk. They’re not very accurate though, especially when it comes to showers.

I’m thinking there could well be a good chance of snow here in the midlands in the next few days, nw winds are a very good direction for us from previous experience. I do feel if your above around 200m you may well get a surprise or 2. Even below 200m may see some snow but obviously not as much. We will see....

Hope so, NMM hi res model almost in range now, also a fairly cold week ahead....can't mention the models atm, except they are looking far more promising that yesterday's saga.

Tomorrow is now into the range of the Euro4 model. Looks good for some of us.
