    Just see Darren Bett forecast , snow as far as Soton abd IOW eastward at times but west and southwest according to him and his charts dry all week . 
     

    East to get a pasting of snow good luck to them and enjoy if you can and enjoy that weather as I do.

    The latest GFS has cold in the south until Thursday before it shows milder air Ingres in to Southern UK at least.

    Met starting to hint at the south getting something on Tuesday night Wednesday. A few hours of light snow for southern towns. Plymouth Weymouth Bournemouth etc. Still much time for this to change.

    Nice to have a sunny Saturday. Going to make the most of it, as we might not see it again for a while.

    Mantra for the next few days...... Expect nothing and hope we get some surprises.......would be good to get more than the dusting we had here a couple of weeks back. ❄

    BBC Currently hinting at a westward shift of the Snow area on Sunday . Currently Western extent seems to be somewhere between Portsmouth/Southampton . Knife edge indeed and still uncertain .

    Looking through all the overnight runs all to play for this coming week with snow chances aplenty I think!

    Tonight/tomorrow looks as though at least the eastern parts of our region may get a covering.

    Monday onwards those showers could penetrate well over to our side of the world and if they band together or a disturbance forms (highly likely imho) then who knows what will come our way!

    Then Tuesday night into Weds there is potential for snow in the south and west, possibly even reaching up here.

    And then we start looking at the end of the week where the breakdown snow may well not get very far across the country before being pushed back.

    And to cap it all it's beginning to look like the cold air is going to fight back (or never really go away!) even down here and potentially could turn even colder going into the following week.

    Phew!

    I'll be glued to my radar from tonight onwards for much of the week I think 🤞🙂

    Latest ECM hinting at a battleground situation developing on Thursday/Friday with the cold trying to hang on - could lead to some heavy snow for a time.

    Yep, the Euro4 is keen on that idea.

    A lovely sunny day yesterday, spoilt with a few showers early evening.
    High of 11.8c yesterday at 1pm, 6c at midnight.
    A low 0.9c at 7:30am.
    A very slight frost this morning.
    Now, 2.2c, lovely clear blue skies. light NW wind, 1007.5 hPa

    Forecasts looking good for us for many possible chances of either sleet or light snow from Sunday to Thursday.
    So, hopefully we will get something to smile about during that time.

    Good to have some subzero temps in parts this morning, to get the ground temps lower.

    A good deal of dry weather in parts too, when it could have been a miserable rainy day for most.

    Both raise the likelihood that at least some of us will wake up to a covering of snow tomorrow morning.

     

    Interesting developments for later next week - yesterday’s update to the Met Office outlook looking as shaky as I suspected it might.

    The way it’s shaping up, snow seekers may be urging the front to get in before it fizzles rather than slow and slide.

    Snow risk increased with 6z icon run. Further north too. Dare I say purbeck might get some too?

    Interesting that the showers further North are showing as sleet/snow mix already. 

    Really hope everyone in the thread sees snow this week. 

    Fingers and toes crossed

    Gfs just to far south for most. Nerves are going to be shot as this is 90 hours away.🤣🤣🤣

    My only experience of freezing rain is from March 18 in that BFTE. We had a lot of snow before hand but it ended up transitioning to freezing rain which ended up in a layer of ice on top of the snow. Was very odd, see an example below! I believe this was Storm Emma when we were just outside the red warning zone.
