    Yellow Warning of Snow for London & South East England :

    Milton Keynes

    Yellow Warning of Snow for East of England :

    Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Bedford, Central Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire

    Rain is expected to turn to snow on Saturday, more particularly on high ground but with an increasing risk at lower levels. 5 cm or so could accumulate above 200 m in the Pennines, whilst ice forming on power lines in strong winds poses a threat of local power cuts. Ice on roads and pavements will also be a risk, especially in the north of the region. At low levels the main risk of snow is later in the day, and a lot of falling snow will melt on the ground, though some accumulations of a few cm here could not be ruled out.

    Valid from:

    0300 on Sat 9 Mar 2013

    Valid to:

    2100 on Sat 9 Mar 2013

    Cold air coming south and cutting underneath a frontal zone will bring the risk of snow and ice. Temperatures will be marginal for snow at low levels, and the ground has been warmed by the recent mild spell, though any sustained intensity could allow accumulations even to low levels. Winds on high ground could gust to more than 50 MPH increasing the risk of damage where rain freezes on power lines, especially over the north Pennines.

    Yellow Alert of Snow for London & South East England :

    Kent, Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex, East Sussex, Southampton, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth & Brighton and Hove

    A spell of sleet and snow is expected, starting on Sunday evening in SW England, and affecting southern England more widely on Sunday night and Monday morning. Snow will be accompanied by a strong easterly wind which will accentuate the very cold feel. Accumulations of 3 - 5 cm could occur quite widely over southern counties, and the public are advised to be aware of this wintry hazard.

    Valid from:

    2000 on Sun 10 Mar 2013

    Valid to:

    2100 on Mon 11 Mar 2013

    A low pressure system moving up from the Atlantic will come up against the influx of cold air from the north, bringing persistent sleet and snow. At the same time winds will increase, with gusts to 50 MPH on coasts and hills. At this stage there is uncertainty about how far north precipitation will push, and also the extent to which snow will settle on the recently warmed ground and this warning is likely to be updated.

    I know what you mean JP, been watching its ' progress ' for several hours now. In the meantime it just keeps on raining here

    would not mind a shower moving that slow if it was above us and was snowing

    wishful thinking

    the rate the front is moving it will be cold enough to snow before it gets here rofl.gif

    these are just for a giggle but nice to look at

    Must admit looking a bit iffy for Cheltenham racing next week, although any snow threat could recede away south, come the first race on Tuesday. Big blow to our industry, if we lost a day or twos racing, in what is our busiest week of the year along with Royal Ascot!

    Looking a bit iffy for Cheltenham racing next week, although snow threat could recede away south on Tuesday, just before the first race. If we lost one or twos' day racing, would be a big blow to the industry, in what is our busiest week of the year, along with

    Royal Ascot! help.gif

    They might try and run the big championship races, Champion Hurdle (Tues), Queen Mother Chase (Weds), at the end of racing say Thurs, Fri.

    Or as they did the other year, tag the races on to the cards say on Weds, Thurs, Fri, if they just lost Tues.

    Dont know if you remember, gale force winds blew down the marquees and temporary stands, causing the abandonment of racing for 1 day.

    ^^ Not in uxbridge I suspect !

    Latest output suggests ppn moving well north into London and other home counties.

    Uxbridge should do fine if verifying

    I remember the gold cup being delayed for 90 minutes of so due to snow when I was just a wee lad. The Thinker came steaming up the hill to win. Hot favourite (Forgive and Forget, I think!) down the field

    cough

    ^^ Not in uxbridge I suspect !

    , cough,cough.being almost in exact alignment with m4 corridoor, and the northern most extent(as it currently) stands,i would suggest that location (uxbridge) where myself resides,is on course,perhaps as myself susspects, there is more than optimism for snowfall.how much imo is the only thing open to question.further the stage is setting for an encrouch on northern extent. Followed by the off slide LPS, drawing,and encouragment of convection (snow form) drawing westward,to that and/or simular locations...regards.

    remember the abandonment well

    very well publicised

    Anyone would of thought it was the storm of 86 lol

    Jokes a side I know it's a very serious business and next weeks weather will certainly hamper your industry mate

    Even a few hour postponement = a hell of a lot of money

    Yes, I remember that but wasnt working in the industry then. Back in 89/ early 90s worked at the racecourse now and again and was at Cheltenham for Desert Orchids Gold Cup. We (colleagues) stayed down in the Cotswolds for the week, Gold Cup morning we had 3"/4" of snow outside our hotel but the other side of Cleeve Hill the snow hadnt settled down at Cheltenham but I have never felt so cold on a racecourse as that day, we had driving sleet for most of the afternoon. Fortunately I spent most of the afternoon working in the hospitality boxes and got to see David Elsworth bring the Gold Cup into the box I was working in.
