    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

    Some very snizzly conditions likely here shortly, take care that snizzle pellets don't get in your eyes.

    Evening all, just watched Fergie's forecast, his advice is take everything with a pinch of salt for the foreseeable. Might get milder at the weekend, might not, might snow, might not, currently no clear way forward.

    Personally, I'd be surprised if the cold caves into the milder weather from the SW without putting up a bit of a fight. Deep cold is usually quite difficult to shift unless there's a large push from the Atlantic and what's currently seen as incoming from that direction isn't a big, strong low pressure system.

    Strange that he is moving away so much from the forecasts that are being  put out by the Met Office, looks pretty much nailed on change from Sunday onwards.

    Crikey - Look at Thursday.. could be 13 or 14°C in parts of the SW if it were to come off like that. Doubtful though.

    Thoughts on Saturday? Met office accumulation chart shows around 15-20cm for SE Wales, is that a load of rubbish?

    A bit more oomph to the snow further east. Falling moderately at the moment in NE Hampshire, and beginning to accumulate to more than just a dusting.

    Could be dry, could be wet, could be cold, could be mild, could be snowy, could be cloudy, could be sunny, could be windy.

    However, it's not looking like there is going to be any thunderstorm activity nor is there going to be a heatwave.

    I think that just about covers it for now.  😁😁

    Id almost put money on less than 1cm of snow for most of west country this cold spell.. 🙄

    Undeniable agreement in 12z Ens for a return to nearer average conditions from Sunday onwards now, for my area at least, (May differ in timing for other areas).  These are for Bristol;

    Good chance we will go out with a whimper according to the ens too, with only a few offering something wintry on Saturday, before milder air arrives.

    That ICON run earlier seems a long long time ago now.  I think there is more chance of Trump being re-elected than that coming off.

    A long time ago? It was released at 3pm.  A few hours.

    Latest MetO forecast posted 2 hours ago mentions snow risk in the SW on Friday. Although I think that risk has to be for the far SW? I don't think any model has the PPN pushing very far inland at all. (Could be wrong though.) One to keep an eye on for the most snow starved maybe?

    I think they do it for click bait!  No better than the tabloids at times!

    Think I may have jinxed it, the M3 streamer seems to have died. There is some moisture over Buckinghamshire and around London, might transfer SW later (if it has any energy left by then).

    Latest 18z ICON consistent in giving Devon some snowfall Thursday night into Friday morning.  Won't bother posting all the charts, here is a couple below as a snapshot;

    iconeu_uk1-42-59-0.thumb.png.186b6d3bd494364f7ba3695643aeb6b5.png

    iconeu_uk1-42-60-0.thumb.png.82c379febc22727b85f4339d0d6927bc.png

    Actually brings it slightly further NE into Somerset too.  Mainly light snow but nonetheless, something for snow starved Devonshire members to keep an eye on (and possibly Somerset folk here too).

    Im not looking at the models this even but thought I'd look in and have a quick look at some comments then noticed someone called Jimbob saying 15oC in the south. I did have to chuckle at that one. 😆
