Snow accumulation by Wednesday?

January 13, 2013 — Leave a comment


The main story for us in Reigate is now COLD but some snow showers mid-week could still deliver 5mm of lying snow in Reigate with a HIGH pressure over Scandinavia bringing bitterly cold north easterlies (-6°C windchill) to the South East with snow showers moving west.  The photo shows the front on Monday finally clearing off by about 5pm.

Update: Friday and the weekend look interesting: a “slider low” undercutting the HIGH (which is loathsome to move) could cause a classic “snow-on-the-leading-edge-of-fronts situation”.  Being sheltered in Reigate on the eastern side of the country this may amount merely to some light snow followed by miserable persistent and cold rain over Saturday. Meanwhile, enjoy the mostly dry but VERY cold weather!
