    Right now Thursday/Friday is looking good for the region. Some things are going for us at present - cold air mass, the region on the northern side of the LP & relatively light winds should all help with potential snow. The slow moving LP system seems to chuck in a lot of precipitation at us and some of this will probably be wintry as early as Thursday morning for high ground but the best chances for more of us will be Thursday night into Friday. 

    I'm still going for a real mixed bag, obviously the further inland and higher up you are the better for the real white stuff, settling in places too I suspect. I think I'm more likely to see rain, sleet, soft hail here near the coast but who knows snow can be so random at times especially in these unusual setups, fingers crossed!

    Nice and fresh on the tops with snow becoming powdery & forming a glaze layer. -2C at present.

    Looks like someone was looking for an argument in here (and in other parts of the forum as it goes), those posts have been removed now, so please refresh the screen if you still see them. 

    About 2 inches now.. Never expected this.

    Just thought I'd share these, stumbled on them just now. Courtesy of the Liverpool Echo.

    An afternoon walk on the park lake. The overnight fall of snow ruined skating chances on Sefton Park lake but many people had the experience of walking on the lake. The Parks Department allowed this for the first time in 15 years. Liverpool, Merseyside. 21st January 1963.

    Other than having open moorland on my doorstep,  there’s not a lot of advantages of living up in the clouds but hopefully a bit of snow later this week will make up for the wet misty crap which seems to have lasted for months.

    Based on current output which may and probably will change, Thursday evening into Friday morning looks likely to be the period of time when snow is most likely to fall to relatively low levels. Nightime cooling will help, light winds, dewpoints, uppers and thicknesses all look just about right side of marginal. Anywhere with a bit of height away from coast could see quite a bit. All though dependent on whether any precipitation actually falls, and where, and how intense it becomes. Evaporative cooling situation, the heavier it is the colder the air will become.

    It will be nice just to see first snows on the fells, and hoping to be able to step into some over the weekend, and the cold air isn't going anywhere fast so it should stick, even if it retreats to the most highest ground.

    A messy 72hrs coming up expect weather warnings to be issued either tomorrow or Thursday for snow for the higher ground of the region as Damion has posted above Thursday night into Friday morning looks the prime time for snow to fall to lower levels.looks like the LP systems will just spin round the main trough instead of departing to our NE thanks to the huge block to our East so even into Saturday PPN looks like heading our way although by this stage snow will be restricted to the highest hills as the DP and 850s start to rise not that you will feel the difference as it will still feel cold at the surface.

    Not posted for a few months, I always find the transition period between summer and winter a bit tedious and mundane weather wise. Great pictures above btw Day 10, thanks for sharing. It's great to be looking at the potential for snow again. Friday looks the optimum period around these parts and whilst I don't expect any settling snow, it would be great to see snow falling a least. Those higher up and towards the East of our region will do quite well I suspect.

    Friday afternoon is my prediction as the LP front wraps around from the E NE meeting straight Northerlies and look at all that moisture. Uplands potentially a good pasting.

    Thanks, likewise! That's a beauty of a chart above. Winds screaming down from the N/NNW. Much excitement now, I can see a sleet symbol for these parts at midnight Thurs/Fri on the automated output 😆

    Great photos Day 10. I'm no expert on Liverpool buses, but the bus in view looks a bit too modern for it to be 6th Feb 1968. The great west coast snowstorm of 5th/6th February 1996 perhaps?

    Hi, me neither. All images and text taken from the Echo, I'll get onto them now and tell them you're not impressed with the inaccuracies 😂

    Small upgrades today. Looks like the snow opportunities have increased a tad into the weekend as well.

    I just don't see what there is to get excited about, might be some transient snowfall across higher ground in the region but the window is a small one and as soon as the low deepens and the NE'ly winds dig in then that's it for snowfall risk anywhere due to winds mixing the cold air out and winds coming in from a warm north sea.

    The outlook on the models is just awful, the set up pattern is fine but we are really looking for scraps in terms of cold but yet you think looking at the model thread, we are heading into a significant cold spell. Certainly no cold from the east anytime soon and even worse we are likely too see snow melt over Scandinavia with that big blocking high. 

    As for the Euro 4, hard to take a model too seriously when it thinks its going to snow out in the North Sea with uppers of - 4. Just not possible.

    Hold on a moment. I've just had a look at my very good Philip Eden book and he has an entry for 5th Feb 1968, "another unpredicted snowfall hit much of the Western Midlands, Cheshire and Lancashire, with many places reporting over 25cm of undrifted snow.... the urban areas of Merseyside...... were particularly badly affected".

    So possibly the date of the photo is correct although I'm still not convinced that they had such buses around in 1968. Strange how we've been talking recently about the great NW snowfall on another 5th Feb, this time 28 years later in 1996. If I'm still around, I shall await 5th Feb 2024 with bated breath!

    If the Echo want to take me to court for wasting their time, tell them my name is Klopp, J Klopp 😁

    Not sure who's get excited folk are just discussing possibilities which after all this is a discussion thread,not seen any ramping on here just discussing what the models are showing.i agree no cold from the east,I would suggest look north for something colder and would not rule out a potent Northerly before months end and no this is not a ramp or guaranteed forecast just my view as to were we could be heading.

    No harm in discussing what the *short term* models are showing? However transient it may be some snow is better than no snow.
