    12z EC Det shows what could happen should all the stars align correctly for parts of the West Country.

    Not to be taken literally of course, these charts are crap for detail.  Just to give a broad brush idea of what COULD happen for some of us towards the end of the week.

    I wouldn't worry about the temperatures dropping now, as they'll rise again as the front slips South.

    You can tell where the cloud cover is in the east! We are seemingly 4 degrees colder here under clear skies

    Looking at the models and the thoughts of the pros we'd be very unlucky not to get stuck under stalling fronts at some point, producing decent snowfall for many. The potential is definitely there for a few decent dumpings for the region followed by a continuation of the cold.

    Defo! I think everyone will hit the jackpot judging by the latest output.. Fergie hinting at this going on into March possibly

    But colder air is cutting in from Northwest not east I thought

    I'm sort of in 'no mans' land there, with plenty of snow to the west and east!  However, like you say, detail will change.

    It will do, yes.

    I meant that the 2m temperatures now will have no bearing on what falls from the sky during the early hours.

    Actually quite taken aback by the westward momentum coming in now. If only we could of got the cold air in sooner for early hours as going by that I think there is more precip than I gave it credit for.

    I wouldn't take it literally.  I'm not a fan of the above type charts, I posted more to demonstrate what "potentially could" happen if luck was on our side, for some of us.  

    Things will change between now and then, for sure though.

    Indeed, plenty of eye candy at the end of week for our region from ECM.

    Normally I’d say oh it’s such a long way off, which it is, but there is support from other models for this outcome. So maybe our turn end of next week.

    I was hoping for a bit of an upgrade from the 15Z for overnight. Sadly, not the case!

    There was a time during winter when they used to have a separate Central Southern England thread around the time I joined this forum. Mapantz would be able to confirm when it was I suspect.

    Yes there was! I was in it!

    Don't worry mate, just think, Cornwall gets some of the best weather during the summer months.

    Temp bottomed out here and is back on the rise. Associated with the cloud to the East I expect?!

    5°C and rain circa midnight.

    BIG shift to colder weather dominating at the surface from the latest 12z Meteograms.  Look at how Friday and into the weekend have trended well down, a degree or two above freezing as a median for Bristol well into the weekend;

    IMG_20210206_193233.thumb.jpg.7f07a033a4040bd80d983954df206f96.jpg

    Compared to the ones from the same time last night;

    IMG_20210206_193302.thumb.jpg.7b792c2c8ad831330c25c526843647a9.jpg

    Clear shift to colder surface conditions remaining.
