Lampost Watch

So, after being forecast two weeks ago, the cold snap is finally here :-) I could just be normal and just sit back and think if it snows, it snows, but where's the fun in that!

The 528 dam line is the key, any precipitation behind that line is more likely to fall as snow and looking at the charts, it looks like that line will pass over here between 6pm and 8pm tonight. The problem is that most of the precipitation is currently just in front of that line which is why it's all so very finely balanced.

The Cairngorms have already seen some snow and I'm at least expecting the Pennines to see a flake or two through today. We might just see something here but I've remembered to bring the camera in so that's probably put paid to that Nether the less, I'll be keeping a very close eye on that lampost tonight!
