Well at least the build up gave me the kick in the ass I needed to go tidy the garden. Nothing left to blow about if things go bombastic ! Oh apart from 2 very large 100 year old chestnut trees !

Can anyone tell me why there's the possibility of snow across the country this week? As far as I can see the temp at 850hPa is only -4 at most. I thought one of the many conditions we needed for snow was -8 temps at 850hPa.

Edit : scratch that, MT just answered my question in the other thread

I don't think there is much chance of snow, apart from higher ground. MT thinks likewise, and has posted his breakdown in the other thread.

Well it seems thurs/fri is a no go now. Was fun while it lasted. If it is infact gone as latest charts are predicting I don't think anyone thought it would vanish so quickly. I thought it would decline over a few days.

Really? Wasn't it just one run?
It could easily come back as quick as it went.
Heres me hoping.

The thing that is changing the most is that Wednesday, the sort of forgotten day in all this discussion, is now looking the most active of all. And I certainly wouldn't want to close the door on eventual development of something severe on Thursday night, models that downgrade at 72-96h have been known to upgrade back again at 48-60h. It is very much wait and see on the final chapter this week, but there will be lots of weather to report in the next three days. Glad to see this division of threads, I won't post in here like this again, but just wanted to comment on what had been said already.

Yeah Pangea, the word 'if' was the biggie in my comment. Guess we'll know better in the morning.
