North West Regional thread 01/09/18 Onwards......

Recommended Posts

Regions and local authorities affected:

East Midlands

East of England

London & South East England

North East England

North West England

South West England

Wales

West Midlands

Yorkshire & Humber

Further details

Rain and snow is expected to move in from the southwest, moving across England and Wales through Thursday into Friday. This is likely to fall as heavy rain at first across the far southwest of England, but as it meets the cold air established over the rest of the country snow becomes more likely. There is a chance of 2-5cm of snow for some places, timings are currently uncertain. 10cm is possible in places, though there is uncertainty at this stage on where is most likely to see the greater snowfall accumulations. Overnight Thursday into early Friday ice may also become a hazard on any untreated surfaces as temperatures fall below freezing.

Light snow top end of Bollington!

Very odd here in the town centre. A minute of snow, followed by a flip back to a moment of rain, all sorts.

Usual suspects closed.  Cumbrian routes getting battered.

Lmao Liverpool pretty much the only place not included on Thursday's warning.

 It can’t be because of marginality as Thursdays isn’t marginal.

Remember though Dec 17 had us in an amber warning at one stage and We (myself and everywhere at the same latitude in the region) got jack.
