    Well, up here in North East Wales we had our first snow of the winter today. :oldgood:

    "BOOM! Could be before Christmas...." "Look at that, it will be after Christmas...." "Ah no, it will be after New Years...." "Plenty of potential for mid-January...."    

    Perhaps we should ban all model charts beyond T+120 hours. We could then go back to the 70-80's and actually watch weather forecasts from professionals. Probably not believing them anyway and happy to

    Unusually for me, I'm not even longing for snow and I LOVE snow. Just want heat and the sun back. Maybe I'm still traumatised from being a hermit for a week during Beast from the East!

    After that awful hot summer in 2018 and seemingly endless mild weather early in winter this colder weather is just what we need.  Finally, the spiders that routinely build webs around the tops of our washing line poles have died off.  About time!

    i dunno about this 50p debate you know. I'm old enough to remember the old bigger 50p coins, and i'm talking that size

    living near the coast in the south-west, it doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's normally marginal

    I've seen the ground get covered fast before, if those 50p's come down hard enough... sadly, the drip drip sounds soon follow, when it stops

    5 hours ago, Deep Snow please said:

    Absolutely! This misconception that big flakes are good is disappointing on a weather forum, where one would expect people to observe snowfall enough to have established the difference. That dry tiny powder snow accumulates far faster because the entire lot settles, whereas much of the 50p flake type wet snow melts as it settles and comes into contact with the warmer surface. We'll know where in Narnia when it pellets it down.

    It depends. I recall several snow events in the 80s where it started with big flakes coming down like bird feathers in the afternoon and reaching 3-6 inches in an hour or two before clearing and freezing at dusk. (I remember because I used to work in front of a series of picture windows and would wonder what my walk home of 3 miles was going to be like.) Perhaps it would pay not to generalise too much. I'd say most often you would probably be correct but mother nature has so many tricks up her sleeve.

    Anybody around Buxton? It's been snowing there for hours, according to radar.

     

    Derbyshire County Council said they had closed the A53, Buxton to Leek road; the A54, Buxton to Congleton road, the A57 Snake Pass and the A537 Buxton to Macclesfield road (Cat and Fiddle).

    Snowing here now. Started as sloppy 50p pieces. Now drier 20p pieces. It's settling on unsalted surfaces even though radar has only said sleet. Temperature dropped from 2.2C to 0.7C.

    oh boy, now we have to deal with the tv, and paper forecasts, that are still using the old data, and telling people a big freeze is on the way, time to walk away from this for a while

    If anything its more the other way round.....its so blatantly obvious that quite a few people are almost completely absent from the MOD thread, and then as soon as there's a downgrade, they absolutely love posting charts that show a slightly worse outcome. 

    Its just people's nature I think, but I do find it funny. There's literally no words to describe that thread, and some of the people in it (from both sides of the camp)

    Just spoke to a Seniro Operational Meteorologist for the Met Office, and they are still going for cold (like the long range forecasts suggests)

    I don't think it's over until UKMO starts jumping ship.. Hoping it'll stay firm, and the others start to follow.

    Does that include into February? Or mostly for the end of January only? ?

     Heavy being the operative word.

    The front looks pretty active on GFS for Tues, so could be a good test of your theory Matt (which I don't disagree with)

    Moved this over here as it's not model discussion. 

     

    I've seen many a heavy and prolonged shower/front result in several inches of snow having begun as rain.

     

    The longer it persists for, combined with how heavy it is and how much temperatures are dropping are all factors in the consideration though. If it's heavy enough it will stick though.

    Must say I'm pleased that the extreme model outputs have disappeared - our local A&E is on the verge of collapse, and the hospital of which it is a part is near-bankrupt.  Bad weather would probably finish both off.

    well there we have it folks, our 1 and only chance of a decent cold spell has all but gone, i have to admit being disappointed, but on the plus side, half marathon training will be alot milder and dryer, and the £10 bet i had with the wife on this being a snowless winter looks very good.

    After February 2018 we were never going to get a cold one this year.
