Hello
I just wondered if anyone has heard about it being really cold next week with snow showers?
Ooh I do hope so (fingers crossed for a snow day).

Urgh. I hope not

Someone on facebook said next week is going to be really cold (so must be true). I looked on met office and it mentioned wintery showers and on metcheck showed snow showers so I though i'd ask one of our super weather experts if they knew anything.

scotland and the midlands probably, further south, I doubt it

MegGriffin Tue 20-Nov-12 16:08:19

I'm in the south.

MegGriffin Tue 20-Nov-12 16:08:59

Oh well I can dream I suppose.

It best not in the south. 8mo pg and a hill to/from the dcs school. I will not be happy if it snows!

I've bought DS a sledge, so it won't snow for 20 years!

I know it's going to be very cold in the South middle of next week. Minus 2 at night and 4 degrees during the day. No snow forecast though

Stacey are you me?! smile

Actually I'm not ready so you can't be grin

I will use current condition as supreme excuse to stay indoors and NOT go to school, hurrah.

Well, I'm working backwards at the moment, looking at the 6 th dec, GFS has a lovely wintery chart, with a high pressure blocking the Atlantic. Temps of freezing and snow across the northern half. Now of course it's way too early to be accurate but its very exciting!

Coming forward to beginning dec we have temps in the 0-5c range and looking showery.

They're getting quite excited on met-monkey (weather message board) that for next week, the signs are there that colder weather is a-coming. I don't think they can tell at the moment what form this cold could be ~ it could just be frost, fog etc and that's it, or it might start as frost, fog and then after a while, move on to snow. The last few days of November/beginning of December could be interesting!

What about South Wales?

Will we be getting any of the white stuff?

BelleDameSousMistletoe Tue 20-Nov-12 22:01:16

No. Please tell me it's not going to snow anywhere in the UK next week?

Bloody bastard snow. I live in Yorkshire on a bastard hill that's not gritted. As if that's not bad enough, I have to go to Glasgow and Edinburgh on Wedneday and Thursday next week. <sobs>

Next week.....
<drum roll>

According to gfs Maybe widespread wintery showers even in the south grin GFS shows it much colder, temps a little above zero.

Met office seem to be going for a milder option.

We will see which is right.

Exciting!

Too early to say when and where! Not expecting prolonged stuff out of this set up, just a taste of winter.

Ooh I do hope so.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 20-Nov-12 22:05:29

Just a taste is fine to start with!

I'm keen to find out how my new car goes in the snow!

Moodykat Tue 20-Nov-12 22:06:28

No no no! Not next week, I have no boiler!

I guess the most likely scenario is wintry over northern hills, but GFS suggests more...

Piemistress Tue 20-Nov-12 22:09:11

Hopefully not as I am moving house!!

RooneyMara Wed 21-Nov-12 07:27:48

I'm bewildered that anyone would be looking forward to driving in the snow grin I tried it two years ago, never again.

Is it a specially winter tyred car? Sounds brill if so!
