Right, tomorrow is planned. We're rising early, and if the snow (as expected) hasn't given us enough to play in (my lads are snow starved) then we're heading to higher climates and we're building a sn

I’m disappointed with the snow here today but not as disappointed as my wife will be tomorrow with her valentines present 😬

Just tested the cat out in his new backpack. Ground control to major tomcat. 😅

    I'm actually loving this dry, cold weather. The mud from last week has dried up well and the ground is froze hard. Overnight low of -2.5c and currently -1.9c. 

    Sure it's better than pouring rain, but last night night I went to bed thinking there was a decent chance of three heavy snow spells over the next week with the cold winning, this morning, it's a brief snow spell followed by mild.

    The UKMO model really is the best up to T+120

    I'm delighted the mud has dried. Everytime I've walked the dog he needs a shower to wash the muck off.

    GFS 6z shows Britain getting hammered with heavy snow and Ireland gets rain.

    Very little time for a backtrack now.

    I'm seeing accumulations across a good part of the island from the latest gfs snow accumulations charts.

    For the SW. Better further North. Shows snow from Thursday evening on and off for friday. Max on Friday of 1c . Saturday gets slightly milder high of 3c. Milder in to Sunday. So not washing away quickly for here at least if that forecast is accurate.

    With UKMO that’s game over! My mind starts thinking about Spring when it gets to mid February. You need exceptionally cold weather (Beast 2018) to retain interest, otherwise whatever you get is gone by afternoon anyway, with the stronger sun and longer light. We really are in a god forsaken place weather wise. 
    Soon, the eternal disappointment of Sun seeking will replace the eternal disappointment of Snow seeking....

    For once i would love gfs to be right 3 days of snow and with fronts pushing against the cold.

    If we can at least get a snowy weekend that would be better than nothing. At least we could get out and enjoy it.
