    Not to far away from us in North Norfolk had snow this afternoon for about 3 hours, all gone now thankfully. We just had a power cut🙀

    Ok guys and gals, for those who want some snow look out, approximately from the Midlands heading North into Scotland could see moderate to heavy snow late Wednesday through Thursday. Snow showers for Friday almost anywhere.

    Bobcat, have you considered a career in meteorology?

    @stu-c, ha ha ha no, I just don’t like winter. I try and be prepared for what it brings. I was a teenager in 1962/63 when we had the heavy snow and freezing temperatures for a couple of months then the floods that followed as it thawed.

    Hope you, wherever you live, don’t get to much of the white stuff👍

    I wouldn’t mind a little bit. Been dying to try the RS out in the snow. My Fiesta ST wasn’t very good in it. I remember sliding back down a hill waiting for the bang. Luckily it didn’t happen.

    Seen no snow in the Midlands yet.

    You might be lucky (Midlands)

    Wednesday 12 February – Sunday 16 February
    Staying unsettled albeit gradually turning milder
    Wednesday will see a persistence of the recent chilly, windy and showery weather. Some of the showers will be wintry in the north and west of the UK with further snow over hills. Thursday then looks set to be unsettled with showers and longer outbreaks of rain. Parts of southern Scotland and northern England will have a threat of settling snow for a time. A temporary ridge of high pressure should then bring drier weather for Thursday night but with a widespread frost.
    A change appears likely on Friday as winds swing around to a southerly direction, bringing milder conditions for most. However, the north and west are likely to become wet and windy. Another unsettled and windy weekend to come. Outbreaks of heavy rain look like spreading from southwest to northeast across much of the country. The rain is likely to be accompanied by strong or locally gale force winds. However, Saturday will be quite widely mild. Turning chillier in the north on Sunday.

    Wet and windy at times, most frequently in the nor
    Next week, the unsettled theme to the weather is likely to continue for many. Low pressure areas passing to the north will bring bands of rain from west to east across the UK at times. The rain is likely to be occasionally accompanied by strong winds. Wettest conditions are likely to be over Scotland, Northern Ireland and Cumbria with rainfall amounts well-above normal there. However, there will also be some drier, brighter and calmer interludes. Indications are for the best of any settled weather to be in the middle part of the week and over southern Britain. Temperatures are likely to be often near or a little above the seasonal average. A lower risk of snow compared to this week with any snow mainly confined to upland areas of Scotland.

    @wheely, there are several guys on here running winter tyres. It could be an idea and start a new thread, you’ll get good help and advice from them.
