Not a bad met office text forecast for Sunday if snow at this time of year is your thing

 And now they’ve gone with a really vague outlook.

Greetings all. Hope to be back posting more soon. Family illness and a bereavement to contend with.

Ironically 15 March could be a cold wet and even snowy affair for the funeral.

If the flow could slacken off by another 20 mph then Sunday night would be a snowfest around here. As it is looks like the wrong side of marginal with the wind being so strong.

 Minimum 4.9°C, nowhere near a frost as I expected. Maybe places in the far east of the region have got one? 

We got one but by 8 o’clock it had all disappeared as cloud moved in.

rain pretty much constant since mid day and hammering on the conservatory roof a few minutes ago.

all in all a poor day.

No doubt even with your slightly less altitude you will still be seeing a dumping while i will just get sleety rain.

Just had a notification from met office for wind I thought that meant today it’s for Tuesday 😂

I just hope Cheltenham isn’t affected this week, the only week of the year I don’t want it.

It is just luck really - a proper winter and this place would be great - 09/10 was quality here but missed that by 6 months - interesting though the older people mention the 70s where they used to get 3-6ft drifts all the time - where as in the West Midlands the 80s was king - due to the Easterlies, im presuming the 70s was polar NW flows as apart from the late 70s, it doesn't look that snowy a decade looking at the retro charts - perhaps less marginal then due to climate change not having any effect

I moved to Mossley in the mid 80,s and woke up to knee deep snow plus drifting on a few occasions in my school teen years. Mossley Hollins school was well located for snow days.

Honestly believe this will be a nowcast event and I’ve seen us in the warning area and get nothing on many occasion so I’m not worried by this.

Manchester and Liverpool Airport TAFS are both indicating the snow risk tomorrow

One warning area i’m glad that i’m not looking like getting an invite to.

just don’t fancy a few cm of wet slush but up here I wouldn’t be surprised to see something.

Oh hello! Where did this little southerly tracking low spring from for tonight. I do well from knees.

 

Looks like  a classic  cyclonic loop of surface winds. Pretty likely to see a period of snow then; or at least rain to snow; maybe like 8th March last year. Exciting.

 Then tomorrow night another snow chance. As I have said probably the wrong side of marginal for me at the coast though. Quite a lot of CAPE and low T500s however so maybe some convective action.

Yes, i have been thinking by that school looks good when i get the 350 bus, mind you the only place i could afford round there is in that dodgy part, thats probably near 1000ft, top mossley probably even higher and the Hartshead Inn probably the hotspot, they get proper dumpings there.
