After just hearing that there is possibly snow on the way for some parts of the UK this coming weekend, which seems wierd with temperatures on the rise & expected to make 18oC in some parts! Anybody know where the snow is most likely etc. I did say after the last Easter wintry spell that I had a feeling cold snowy weather would return......and Ive been having withdrawl symptoms of cold ramping and staying up all night waiting for wintry weather to arrive......bring it on...... Your thoughts please... :doh:

Highland, Grampian, Tayside and Fife: the places to be for snow this weekend. That is what the models are saying at the moment. I'm praying for the cold weather to become a little more intense and a little more widespread (although the cold weather will indeed make it quite a lot further south, past the Pennines perhaps).

The metoffice have a warning out, should be referred to!

Heavy Snow & Drifting Snow Sat 5 Apr

There is a moderate risk of a severe event affecting parts of northern Scotland. Strong, and increasingly cold northerly winds are expected to bring an increasing risk of snow showers. These are likely to bring 2 to 5cms generally, and as much as 10cms to high ground, where drifting is possible in the strong winds, especially later in the day.

blue is rain but of course the whole of the PPN chance wedge cannot be surrounded by rain, it defeats physics. So I imagine like Cookie says chance is a better way of looking at it.

Yes, big chance, looks pretty good for the Northern part of Ireland atm as far south as maybe the Wicklow mountains.

*sigh*

I'm in the high risk area but doesn't anyone agree that some consistent milder weather would be better?

I like the weather to remain seasonal, and while I enjoyed the snow we got during Easter - I think it would have been a nice way to end the winter.

I remember when i lived in the Isle of Man and was doing my duke of edinburgh gold award practice walk around north barule in the mid/late 90's. It started quite nicely and the first day was fine. Woke up the next day to 4inches of snow around our tent. Then our walk that day was in blizzard conditions and driving snow. It was over 8 inches thick by lunchtime and i tried eating a marsbar from my rucksack and cracked a tooth as it was frozen solid. I had to hold a snowball to my tooth as it was bleeding quite a bit. Then a few of us slid down a frozen waterfall on decending the Laxey valley and i completely crushed my mass tin in my rucksack as it broke my fall. We camped that night but i had to limp down to the camp site as i had a huge bruise on my back. I loved it as it was so unexpected. The rest of the practice was abandoned. Oh the days....... hehe

The local TV and radio are talking about wintry showers for us - shouldn't that be springy showers now? :)
