Hello
I just wondered if anyone has heard about it being really cold next week with snow showers?
Ooh I do hope so (fingers crossed for a snow day).

The myth about being too cold to snow comes about because clear winter nights are colder than under cloud cover and it obviously needs clouds to snow. In reality, never too cold for snow.

I remember being utterly confused when my geography teacher told us 1) the arctic tundra has less rain than the Sahara and 2) it snows in the Sahara <boggle>

I love weather!

And linked in with that youngermother it's often high pressures which give us our coldest temps which tend not to have precipitating clouds.

It' been snowing here for a while. North of Glasgow. Sigh, just in time for Monday morning. Oh Joy.

Thanks, Mute. Will have a look tomorrow.

I'm in West Fife - been snowing fit to burst for the last half hour. sad

Snow has laid here, I'm on the Durham coast. DC2 is over the moon. The dog will be too in the morning. DS1, Dp and I not so excited.

After today's bout there may be a few snow showers around in the north tomorrow. Then Thursday looks like the next proper batch, once again for the north east -mostly Scotland, but perhaps some northern areas of England.

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Mon 03-Dec-12 07:42:10

And watch out for Thursday night into Friday. GFS are showing a bit of a snow fest right down to central England. Met office don't seem to be going for this solution, but the potential is there.......

BBC website is currently forecasting snow here for Wednesday - Staffordshire sad.

I'm in Kent and 2 of my kids break up next week so it can snow after that a bit but not properly until my 3rd breaks up, if you can arrange that grin.

MyMamaToldMe Mon 03-Dec-12 15:01:27

I'm in Kent too, and if it can be arranged for it to start on the 22nd, that would suit me fine! smile

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Mon 03-Dec-12 20:33:04

Just came on to say that GFS shows a chance of snow for the SE and east Anglia for Wednesday morning!

Coconutty Mon 03-Dec-12 20:35:03

Ooh, we've got snow forecast for Wednesday too, very light though and then followed by sleet.

JustFabulous Mon 03-Dec-12 20:36:25

Eek!!

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Mon 03-Dec-12 20:54:21

A chance means quite probably not! But maybe.......

MegGriffin Mon 03-Dec-12 21:36:02

crosses fingers, legs, eyes, toes for snow in SE.

oh please, please pleeeeeeeease.... .* backs up meg *

MrsChristmasVamos Mon 03-Dec-12 21:58:37

I'll back up Meg and Glitter. But I only want a bit now...enough to cover naicely but then melt without the slush bit.

I have shopping to finish ! grin

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Tue 04-Dec-12 18:11:06

Potential is still there for a bit tomorrow.

No sign of warming up at all in the next couple of weeks (maybe the far south will blip up to around 8c sometimes) with some very teasing charts.

GlaikitFizzogTheChristmasElf Tue 04-Dec-12 18:12:59

Snowing here again and it's sitting on the frozen slush from yesterday! Poor ds has never walked on ice before he was just like bambi!

iseenodust Tue 04-Dec-12 18:14:38

DS is desperate for some snow. His friend who is coming to tea next week has just told me he's bringing his sledge. hmm

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Tue 04-Dec-12 18:28:57

Aww glaikit smile

Iseennodust, you never know, there is a chance.......

I waaaaant snow!

This link (if it works) shows maps for the week and the pink bits show snow: http://www.weatheronline.co.uk/cgi-bin/expertcharts?LANG=en&MENU=0000000000&CONT=ukuk&MODELL=gfs&MODELLTYP=1&BASE=-&VAR=weas&HH=61&PANEL=1&ZOOM=1&ARCHIV=0&RES=0&WMO= I hope it doesn't snow much, a bit I can take. I'm in the SE but it doesn't show snow here til Friday. Local weather says tomorrow.
