Think this one will be a bust
Turning down the snow forecast
By Simon Keeling in Wombourne, Staffs 18:00hrs 09/2/2012
Temperature: 0.1C Weather: Rain
Ok, this one may be a busted forecast!
Indications are that the snowfall is likely to be far less than originally thought, but the main problem could continue to be ice.
On the forecast chart below we have still highlighted an area of 5+cm of snow, but this is likely to be only over high ground.
In fact, while lecturing to my Masters students at the University of Birmingham earlier today, we talked about what a finely balanced situation this was. This morning it was tipping towards snow, but this evening it is back to rain and ice.
We could see changes taking place again, but to me everything looks a little warm. Which is in contrast to Friday night which is set to be a bone chiller (see below).
