    Admire your optimism but been burnt a little too many times with prospects of fronts coming in from the Atlantic against colder air for our region

    Mid March 2004, the amber alert given by the met office for mid January 2013 only for it too develop a low and it all sank southwards. Early February 2012, for western parts, eastern parts did pretty well though.

    I can only think of the front that ended the January 2013 cold spell that really delivered anything in the last decade.

    18th Jan 2019 - dusting— several hours heavy snow followed by ice pellets;

    22nd Jan 2019 - dusting - several hours heavy snow.

    these were all good events for me and that was when I was in Crosby.

    @cheshire snow I'm sure the whole thread would agree with me here that you are an extremely valued member of the forum, do not let an idiot like that come in here and disrupt what is the best thread o

    Latest GFS has the front over Ireland and delayed I think people are chasing rainbows with this breakdown uppers slowly mixed out with the cold at the surface then a quick pulse of a dying front to finish of the cold 

     

    which is a shame because the whole region can do really well at the breakdown especially a slow protracted one.

    the sun is out and it’s -4 and it’s glorious

    This is pretty bonkers compared to me, I live within maybe 10 miles of both of these areas, (Halewood is about 6km away) , and arguably we live furter in Land.  yet my records are vastly different.  Ive even checked photos i took.

     

    ? Feb 2006 - 10 cm;   Ahh - you mean March 12th 2006.  we had about 12cm. from a stalled front from the west
    23 Dec 2009 - 10 cm;   I think we managed about 6cm 

    13th Jan 2010 - 5 cm;  about the same

    18th Feb 2010 - 2 cm;  Cant remember this one

    21st Feb 2010 - 5 cm; Neithr this one

    25th Jan 2013 - 5 cm; yeh we had snow every friday for about 3 weeks... these two where the biggest if I remember correctly

    13th Feb 2013 - 5 cm; ^

    21st March 2013 - 5 cm; we had about 2cm. We went to Hong Kong the following day.  I took My Prince2 Foundation exam on this day on the outskirts of Chester, I remember we had maybe a dusting, Ellesmere port had none as I drove on the M53 through it to the exam centre.  Chester had about 7cm.  Where as Broughton 6 miles south of where I live had 40cm in one night.


    8th March 2018 - 10 cm;  we had less than 2cm  it was mostly Dry.  Snow would pump up from the south east and die between chester and wales.  

    18th Jan 2019 - dusting— several hours heavy snow followed by ice pellets; Less than 1cm

    22nd Jan 2019 - dusting - several hours heavy snow. Less than 1cm

     

    Its so infuriating that we come so close ...every ...time....

    My neice is 9 going on 10.  Shes never made a snowman in her garden, never been sledging. never seen deep snow.

    Beautiful crisp winters morning down to -4c here last night and likely to be even colder tonight maybe an ice day tomorrow. Cold block looks more stubborn than first forecast on the 6z too.

    Still 0C here, was -4.5 overnight. On my morning exercise ride, I rode my bike straight across the top of the last puddle remaining from Christoph near the river. It's still a couple of inches deep so either frozen solid or thick enough to bear my weight.

    No mild spell on the GFS 06z run temperature no higher than 6c and that's only 1 day out to the 25th Feb.

    Cold air fighting back?

    Different scenarios, Chris.

    For instance 23rd December 2009 was a front coming up from the south, not an Atlantic breakdown

    21st February 2010 was a small low that tracked across the region, that wasn't an Atlantic breakdown, so was 18th February 2010. They were systems  already embedded in a cold airmass.

    @russwirral

    Yeah that’s right 12th March 2006, knew it was sometime around then.

     

    Crazy the differences over a few miles. Maybe I should’ve stayed in Crosby then lol.

    Just got a light snow flurry here, certainly looks a bit heavier than radar says it is.

     

     

    Looks as though showers from the NE could be making it through - we'll know for certain when we see what this does

    My mood is dwindling by the second 😂

    Preston : Dec 2009 & 2010 about 6cm each

    ....the end😢

    Amazed how many fronts move up from the south and stop at Southport before slipping away. Nothing in 2018...nadda

    I think we're looking at 2 or 3 very cold nights and then that's the end.

    Very poor.

    If these showers can't start surviving the Pennines could be some good falls. 

     

    Each one seems to be getting further than the last so far.

    There's the two main directions snow have come from next week. No wonder @chicken soup was so adamant that Easterly's would be crap in this neck of the woods. Awful cold spell, woke up to a covering one day and dustings the rest but with 600m hills to kill precip from one direction and 500m hills to kill it from another direction, no wonder it's dung.

     

    All eyes on breakdown.

    To be fair that's exactly what the warning is saying 'Unlikely but High Impact'
