Cold with some snow – Thursday 3rd December 2020 – Sunday 6th December 2020

Hi all,

Winter’s only just arrived and we have our first chance of some snowfall, albeit on the Pennines and surrounding hills but it’s a start. No repeat of December 2010 at this point!

Thursday: A cloudy and cold day with bits and pieces of rain or showers. Some of this falling as sleet or wet-snow above 350M and on the Pennines but it’s not expected to amount to much. Max 5°C

Friday: A day to keep an eye on if you’re travelling on the tops. Rain looks set to come in from the east during the day and with cold air in place this is likely to turn to snow. The snow will be mostly confined to above 250M but don’t be surprised to see some sleet and wet-snow to lower-levels at times. Slightly less cold air towards evening will mean the snow-level will rise. Max 4°C

Weekend: Remaining mostly cloudy and slowly drier. Below average temperatures.

Saturday: Any early rain, sleet and Pennine-snow soon fading away. Staying generally cloudy with limited brightness. Cold and a patchy frost likely overnight. Raw breeze. Max 5°C

Sunday: Drier with bright or sunny spells developing. Odd shower. Lighter winds. Max 5°C

Outlook: Slowly it will become less cold with temperatures returning to a maximum of 8°C. A lot of cloud about with some patchy rain/showers. No sign of conditions cold enough to bring a snow-risk.
