Bring it on - either the LOW is taking more of a southerly track or the rain looks heavier to produce evaporative cooling and turn rain to snow even as far south as Plymouth, south Devon?
I'll take that any day! - But law of sods is that we will get a sleety mixture of rain to snow and wet snow with ground too wet for snow to settle!
NOW Look at this upgrade for the south on Friday? Additional and more prolonged snow showers across the south - maybe to top up' additional snow cover? - This would be x2 to days snow would be falling in the south if this verifies and this persistent area of snow in the south was not well picked up by models and or any BBC forecast a few days ago! - Plus remember the weather for the week ahead end of last week or was it Sunday? When I asked one member if they knew her name? - Well, it was Alina Jenkins and she said it will most likely turn milder by end of next week (now this week!) - When in fact the milder sector lost the war and the LP is sinking southwards on Thursday night, linger off English channel and heading into France and Bay of Biscay and NOT going northwards!! Below pic demonstrates this well! The Met Office are poor at calling an easterly but well done to the Met office short to medium-range about low's taking southerly tracks into the bay of biscay and as they move northwards at times saying the fact that there could be more significant rain or snow!
If tomorrow does materialise and we are lucky then tomorrow 31st Jan - tomorrow could be the first time the south west has seen significant snow in January since January 2013. - Since then all we have seen at best are sleet showers, Jan 2016, Jan 2018 but never any significant snow mid winter (Jan). Tomorrow is the last day of mid winter (31st) - can we do this for the first time since Jan 2013?
Pic below as alluded to above? Where did this spell of more prolonged snow come from for the south?
What do you make of this Rob - Hampshire guy?
