The Northern end of that band will not push much further Eastwards now but the Southern end will continue to swing up from the SW in a North Easterly direction meaning that the band will eventually be

Yes great big flakes here in East Morton for a while. Lovely surprise to wake up to.

whatever happened to the bitter north winds that brought heavy frequent snow showers to east Yorkshire?.totally absent the last few years.one of the main reasons why hull and east Yorkshire have seen hardly any snow since 2010.

Turned to rain here around 9am. Still some of the snow lingering around as its not rained much today / snowed since, although the radar is lively.

Met has us for Heavy snow from 3pm till past Midnight, I will believe it when it happens.

We need a small correction North for the majority of Yorkshire to get lucky with snow on Thur.........it could happen though. The snow will be on the Northern flank and the uppers look cold enough ( and it all comes in the very early morning so the timing is right ) We just need a 100 mile correction N

The models are showing alot of uncertainty to the northern extent of the low so we can't read too much into the position of it yet. I do think it'll be mostly higher ground event around 150m+ if we do see a favourable track. Maybe localised accumulations down to 100m.

For now keep up to date with the meto Yorkshire and Humber text forecast found at the bottom of the local forecast page.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Early frosts and a few wintry showers, but some bright spells. Turning increasingly wet and windy Friday with afternoon hill snow. Saturday brighter with showers and remaining windy.

The local forecasts going for snow here we well.

Amazing how badly you do, do you blame the eastern location or latitude. 

Only in 2014 have i never experienced lying snow. 

..

Snowed here in LS12 too, turned to rain about 9am. Some small patches made it through before melting.

Next chance seems to be Fri/Sat.

Both really. The majority of snow events in recent years have been marginal in nature, so being 7m ASL only 9 miles from the North sea means they have resulted in nothing.

As mentioned above, we dont seem to have been able to get strong setups in recent years. The couple of times we did in Feb/Mar 2018 the precipitation dodged us and we barely had 1cm.

It's generally a couple of degrees too warm now most of the time. We need a good setup with -8C 850hPa temps or lower that lasts for more than 24hrs.

It'll be 3 out of the last 7 winters without any here and two of those had only dustings, so 5 out of 7 really. Totally abysmal.

Has being poor since Jan 2013 apart from Feb/March 2018 here just had dustings or coverings that have melted in an few hours but i can only remember 2013/14 being snowless here this will be second one if we dont get any snow this winter im about 5 miles west of Hull in Hessle. All we seem to get is north west winds which are even rubbish for most of the north west below 100 metres or near the coast because jst get rain/sleet unless really cold uppers.  Good for Buxton and the peaks high ground of north west Scotland etc  useless for near enough everywhere else.

Do you recall your depth in Dec 10 and Jan 10?

At least the Met Office website now suggests the front will reach here on Thursday then even if it does look light.

As for anything tonight there is shower activity (the stuff for Leeds looks to come from Lancaster so follow the showers).

Temp now showing 2c and dew point 1c at leeds bradford airport. Can't see it dropping much further not shaw the 850s of -5/-6 will be quite low enough for any snow tonight.  

Snow line (falling) in the Midlands thread has gone below 80m so i'd not be too concerned.

Problem is their 850s are expected to be a bit lower than ours as the coldest wedge of the air flow is just south of us. Also I expect shower activity to be much stronger through the midlands with the cheshire gap perhaps coming into play later. 

Hope I'm wrong but can't see any more than the odd slushy deposit overnight.
