    A shiny new thread!

    So, showers still ongoing for a few days and then the possibility of some giant twigs slipping along the South coast. Whether they'll be close enough with their precipitation is wide open for debate.

    The 15Z UKV is meh, so I didn't bother with it.

    It wasn't a lot but it was enough for a dwarf snowman

    A bit late in posting 😂 but we done very well (relatively) down here in the far west of Cornwall today. Proper snow for a solid 6 hours and unlike elsewhere in the country, no issue with settling. Set

    Thanks @Mapantz 👍

    Unfortunately, the white flag is being raised with regards to any significant snow for Thurs/Fri.  The 12z EC Det and the 15z high Res UKV keeping any PPN restricted to the Devon area, and even here fairly patchy.  This is the best it gets with regards to Thurs/Fri, so maybe some interest for Devon, not so much for elsewhere.

    The 15z UKV does offer something of interest for more northern and eastern members of the region on Saturday though;

    which aligns to the Meto extended forecast of splitting the region in half, with milder Atlantic sourced air over south western parts and colder air remaining over northern and eastern parts of the region;

    Our luck, with regards to snowfall, really isn't on our side at the moment.  For my area, IMBY, Thurs/Fri is now all but gone IMO.  I'm not getting overly enthused by Saturday at this stage either, no doubt that will find a way to go boobs up, although at least it does have the Meto support for now though I suppose.

    I’m going off the UKV 😀 mind you, I went off dry roasted peanuts for a bit but I am very much back on them now. Maybe the UKV will find something in the next couple of days. Not hopeful though.

    First it was Thursday, then it was Friday, now it’s Saturday and marginal at that. The models are having a hard time pinning down who wins, the Atlantic or the Easterly.

    Well after going out for supplies earlier with the worry of being snowed in....tonight we are in the Midst of the great blizzard of the Isle of Wight....this will go down in history and definitely one for the record books...

    Honestly if you look close enough it is snowing very heavily....I am really worried about getting snowed in tonight....

    For me, the money is still on the 'cold block' holding out for the majority of the UK after this weekend.

    The only downside to that is that it will remain dry for pretty much everyone.

    To some of the more knowledgeable - what do we need to look for from the models in the short term, in order for this cold spell to create some instability/troughs etc? At the moment it looks pretty bland for the entire country.

    Thanks Awd. Are you thinking they'll be pretty accurate now at this range or do you think they could still shift a bit either way making a big difference? Cheers in advance.

    For what it's worth, I have a covering of snow in Gloucester again. Persistent light powder stuff but enough to coat the shed roof etc. Fingers crossed for something more significant later this week

    With regards to Thurs/Fri, I think that potential has gone for our location mate, all 12z modelling unanimously agrees that nothing of note will make it further NE than Exeter.  It's definitely become more favourable for Devon and even Cornwall though, although even here, not particularly heavy for long before fragmenting.

    I'd normally forget about what it shows for Saturday too, seeing how this week has gone for us.  The only reason I'm keeping half an eye on it is that it follows the extended Meto forecast I posted earlier quite well (ie remaining colder the further north and east you are in the region with potential for stalling fronts brining snowfall).  It is very much just half an eye for now though.

    Personally my confidence for significant snow for our area has now dropped from low to very low.  I'm literally hanging onto the Meto weekend forecast and their associated models, such as the UKV.

    Thanks for taking the time with your detailed reply. Good to have such knowledgeable posters on here. Fingers crossed for Saturday then.

    Why did they remove it? Especially during covid. We all need a bit of sense of humour during these times.

    You won’t believe this, I just seen an actual snow flake coming out of the sky! The amount of time spent looking at this forum, forecasts and radars has paid off! (Almost)

    It was removed because it was being used to troll people apparently. Ie laughing at people in a nasty way if you know what I mean.

    Snow falling on the webcam in Southampton again. Doesn't look that heavy but nice to see.

    FWIW, the maximum temperature for Bristol on the 12z EC Det over the next 10 DAYS is 3c on Sunday, back to just above freezing into next week.

    Just an observation that's all.

    That would be rain for all coastal areas with an onshore breeze...no good

    I see daytime temps have increased for Wednesday now. By no means warm, but nothing like zero that was being forecast.

    No ice days here this week.

    The wind has dropped right off too.
