BBC breakfast weather avoided showing any graphics of snow pushing southeast lol, trying to avoid embarrassment maybe in case it doesn't happen?

They never do and the the high resolution models still aren't running quite far enough to capture everything. 06z should however. I suspect that is why.

Still with snow on Tuesday it will just be a case of watching radar and seeing what reports come in upstream.

A bit underwhelmed with the ITV weather forecast on GMB this morning.  Graphics basically looked like a sleety mess for tomorrow night.  Think I'm going to adopt the glass is half empty pessimistic approach for tomorrow night's potential to avoid disappointment!

Tues looks like the starters before the msin course Thursday

1-5 cms possible then a top up Thursday possibly another 5

Yes I must admit that the Meto text update doesn't sound as aggressive with disruptive snow.... it did always say "a chance of" but as seems to be the theme this winter, any chances just seem to fizzle to nothing. Guess we'll have to wait and see on the actual night.... and then we'll be knackering ourselves out to work out Thursday, lol!! Plodding onwards......

Do think it’s gonna be that snow that just settles on grass and roofs

reckon paths and roads should be ok

better than a kick in the proverbials

Good Morning, on my way to work it was daylight, as i approached Lowestoft it was pitch black as if it was nigh time again, then the heavens opened up , started as very sleety rain, then more and more wet flakes mixed in, the back end of the heavy shower was nice fluffy big flakes of snow, now back to rain. just shows how evaporative cooling works bringing the temp down, temp started at 3 and was down to 1 in he heaviest burst. if you look at the radar you can clearly see the cell develope with the peek above Lowestoft.

I am sure people will look to criticise METO but I think warning was wise and whilst favoured spots lower still broadly s few cms.

Morning

That’s a shame - still time for it to upgrade though a little right? 😊

Currently 0.8c DP -1.6c and sunny

A low of -1.1 here last night, lovely crisp, cold, sunny morning. No matter what falls from the sky tomorrow night, at least we have a wintry feel to the weather coming up this week!

Ever the optimists in there. I expect chaos when it inevitably doesn't come to fruition. I don't know how many times weather enthusiasts still don't learn the lesson not to take far out charts as gospel.

It's a nowcast event, nobody can be sure of where, what and how much will fall, it's only opinions...we only have to think back a week and remember some were surprised and some like myself amazed that all around me had snow yet I had pretty much 5mins of zilch.

As for the Meto, they are in a no win situation, if it comes to a lot of nothing for someones backyard in that warning zone they'll get blasted, a couple of miles can make all the difference, as can timing.

We should be happy we have something to focus on!

Looks like good potential for snow in my area all this week.

Surely we must get something out of either tomorrow, or Thursday, or Saturday or Monday or Tuesday next week. 😂

From the sound of it I should have visited the mod thread before getting excited about the colours on this.

ICON 06z looking good for places away from the SW part of the region, the further NE/NW you are in this region, the better.

Indeed for places north of the Thames, looks like it stays as snow the whole way through for you guys.

Time of arrival however is exceptionally poor for us, right at peak daytime heating. Could do with it getting delayed or brought forward 3-4hrs. Either side would be better.

Just awoken to a lot of ups and downs re Tuesday. Some people saying it's going to be great others saying 2cms.. Depends what model you're looking at I guess. I'd still like to think UKMO will be right, as that looks very nice indeed.

Met going for 1-3cm at best , so no snowmageddon but maybe a slushy covering which for many would be a start to this crummy winter so far !!

Thought Norf Arts might be in with a shot.

Yes I have accepted the fact all we will have is a cold rain fest... hopefully the folks further inland might see a bit of snow, but even that's looking debatable now too.

I think a very good shot unless the GFS is correct with the angle of the front.

ICON  06z has also made the front a little more active this time around compared to the 00z run with broadly 2-4cms forecasted in this region, with a peak at 5-6cms in local spots.
