Continue your discussions regarding the weather in the Midlands here.

Looks as though there could be a possibility for places to see a little wintry surprise tonight and tomorrow as a disturbance tracks South-Eastwards through the UK. Something for some of the cold weather fans to look forward too. But... can the snow become powerful enough to blow up the snow shields, or will they just be too tough? To find out, just look out your window... :p

Have also included a quote from Weather09's recent post below:

https://forum.netweather.tv/topic/83158-the-midlands-weather-chat/?p=3287860

Looking forward to hopefully seeing some early season snowfall, even if it is a brief episode Latest EURO4 output is modeling snowfall - mainly over high ground - among general precip associated with occlusion(s) dropping south over central parts early morning. Zero-degree isotherm a little high (700-800m per GFS) for lower level snowfall, so ideally need precip to be of mod/heavy intensity to drag colder air aloft and subsequently lower the freezing level. Also, 850-1000hPa thicknesses look to rise beyond 1300m for short time during period of interest, adding to the marginal nature of seeing the white stuff. Provided these factors are favourable, though, few places might get lucky and see temporary covering.

Here's hoping.

BS..

 

I was just sending you a message to say keep your hopes up, when DRL switched the forum, so I thought I'd re-type it..

 

When my kids were about 10 years old, my wife had a major heart problem.She was in hospital for 6 weeks around various hospitals in the midlands. Eventually i was told to have my bags ready to fly to Papworth, as her heart was failing fast

.

It has always amazed me that I managed to keep the kids happy (fed and watered), did the washing, kept visiting my wife twice a day and also kept my job going. (My employers gave me all the time off I needed - but one copes).

 

Keep your chin up, the hospitals are fantastic in an emergency situation.

 

The real point is you must give her ladyship the time to recover, dont push her to hard.

 

The snow will be back next year I am sure, and you will have a lot of opportunities to explore the snowdrifts.....

Only light rain showers atm, wind is a bit too westerly and Wales is gobbling them up. Should turn northerly as the low sinks south but in all honesty I just dont think its cold enough. A touch of air frost is the best I think we can hope for, but even that isnt guaranteed given the lack of it in these setups the last two winters.

Sorry, should have gave more notice that I was starting a new thread.

If anyone wants to throw a snowball at me as punishment (assuming it actually snows tonight), go right ahead.

Yep, heavy wintry shower just passed here as well. Started out as rain/sleet, then gradually transitioned to largely moderate snow as the cold air aloft was dragged downward. Some chunky flakes in there too.

 

Is indeed cause for optimism later on.
