    My girlfriend just went to work on the Wirral and told me that there has definitely been some snow in town possibly 1 centimetre although now melting and reported ice pellets on the Wirral.

    Shopping in Bromborough, nothing here.

    Hello Guys & Girls, First of all I just want to say a huge thank you to all of you for all the messages of support and the PM's you sent me, you are an ok bunch aren't you! So, thank you.

    Hi Guys & Girls,  A short message from me while I still have the energy, my Mrs & I are both in our early 40's with asthma, we have made every effort to protect ourselves from from this e

    Shades of Feb 1996' for the NW with the current output - elevation, uppers and frontal / streamer alignment appear in the favour of many eastern areas (e.g. E Cumbria pummelled), but sizeable amounts

    Shower died overhead. Looked like a real beefcake on the radar. It gave a few flakes, a bit of hail and then that’s it?!

    Must say I'm happy to avoid those showers, keeps the white frost around longer which is usually as wintry as its gets here!

    As for snow potential, what a mess it has become, original forecast seemed fairly simple of a band of PPN with mostly snow on it coming down from the north but sadly turning to rain eventually yet now it looks alot more scattered with reduced snow potential although again if you start with snow, very likely it will turn to rain.

    I think right side of marginal everywhere east of a line: Burscough, Kirkby, Huyton, Aigburth, Bromborough, Hooton. West of that it’s a nowcast.

    Wind is  WSW overnight so the Wirral will provide some extra land fetch

    So what if it does or doesn't snow its not the end of the world.

    Original forecast was dry all week so a few places have done very well. Third day of snow on the ground where I am today, near Wigan.

    Yep no complaints here. Still have some lying snow in Withington and I’m impressed how much cover there is down the A34 towards Cheadle.

    Still foggy here, snow on the ground still, very icy conditions treacherous under foot away from gritted main roads.

    But 2 nights running some areas in the south of the region have done better than forecast and received more snow when very little or none was forecast.

    6z EURO4 has removed most snow potential for tonight sadly.. a few showers around 7/8am tomorrow though .

    Tonight’s potential seems to be evaporating but maybe not all is lost - will be interesting to hear from Kasim later.

    I think those forecasts are based on the EPS which must still have a snow signal for tonight.

    Good afternoon all. Slight adjustments to tonight's weather. The trough has shifted circa 80 miles west which has shunted the initial persistent front west & left us in a light westerly flow. Through the early hours this is likely to produce significant shower activity in the region producing a scattered 1-3cm east of the coast. Rain, hail / sleet (30% risk of it being snow) up to coast & sleet wet snow up to the M6 and snow / graupel east of the M6 between 2 and 10am room for adjustments. These showers likely to develop south of Moreacombe bay, develop around St Annes / Liverpool & head into Mcr / Cheshire. Again showers so usual caveats apply, and it's possible these could remain south of Greater Manchester. There is a chance these could become more organized for a time & so locally 3-6cm can't be ruled out east of the A49.

    Then interest turns to early hours Friday for a weak front which will turn sleety later on as the snow level rises to 350-400m later Friday. A scattered 1-2cm possible from this atm, this may increase to 3-5cm to the hills in the east if the front backbuilds as per GFS.

    Looks like the warm layer is mixed out east of the A49. So you can see why inland there's some potential for tonight.

    Well the 2nd event yes that was more of a surprise you could say and was not originally forecast but did eventually get mentioned by the TV forecasts.

    The event on Sunday night into Monday was well modelled beforehand and offered the best chance for snow. Question was going to be how far east was the PPN going to get but with very low thicknesses and no wind, it did offer very favourable snow conditions.

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
