Just about stopped here now. Must say it was better than expected. It as felt like such a long time since I've seen snow falling, also feels like ages since I was basking in the May heatwave whilst i was doing weekend night shifts. Onwards and upwards

On a positive note does anybody know what the certainty is on the Tuesday event and wether the snowfall will be significant?

My understanding is were looking at a couple of cm's on low levels across the region.

Aside from the ECM carcrash this morning, i expect snow warnings for the above to come out either today or tomorrow for our region.

Agreed, I think this system is pretty well nailed on now and with even colder air tucking in behind it could be one of those rare events when rain turns to snow or stays as snow right through.

that would make a change from the default setting of a bit of snow that can’t wait to turn slushy as the mandatory warm sector moves in.

as for who sees the most snow, very much up for grabs but I would imagine the usual mountain areas, North Wales, Cumbria etc should get a few hours of heavy snow as the front passes through but hopefully everyone will join in the action.

Only just looked the models for the first time since yesterday and what a shocker! I hope the ECM doesn't get this right because it just looks changeable and not particularly wintry apart from Tuesday which still looks ok.

The gfs is the best looking of the bunch but even this one has added complications next week. It looks great in the distant FI but to be honest when next week is looking questionable then it is pointless looking further than that.

Let's hope it is a wobble and the cold spell gets nailed in future runs.

Oh Absoulty even the GFS 6z which in comparison to the last few days has totally car crashed there are plenty of snow oppertunities even in FI there is a cold NW delivering snow to our region in fact I would even say the GFS 6z was a good run for our region but I would get linched if I said that in the MOD thread looking forward to see if this trend continues this Evening

All Cushty as far as I am concerned

Totally agree mate, the 6z run is actually better for our region in terms of snow chances. I still maintain this could be a very very good cold spell coming up and lasting well into Feb whichever way you look at it.

All eyes on Tuesday first ❄️

The problem is timescales, we were staring down the barrell of reliable cold, now we're back to pining for FI charts to come off. Who's to say we won't get disappointing again?

Looks like a slight upgrade from the Meto for the west of the region this morning for Mon/Tues. At what point can we expect to see a significant upgrade? Tomorrow?

I see disappointment all round in the MOD thread with the ECM not playing ball again. I've never viewed easterly's as delivering the goods for much of our region away from the eastern side anyway?

Yes mate Tuesday is looking fantastic for me that is were FI starts the models are having so many problems with the storm coming out of the US and trying to contend with SSW I think once the exact track of the US storm is sorted  we will start seeing the boom charts again.
