Well, we told you there was likely to be snow this weekend. The only thing that's changed is that it will probably come a day earlier than we initially thought, but we're certainly not complaining! We're expecting Thursday's rain to turn to snow overnight and for it to snow for most of Friday and Saturday.  This is what it should do.

There is a chance though, that the weather may be too much from the west and not enough from the south. We'll really only know as the system progresses. So check the webcams after 8am on Friday morning and then again during the next couple of days. What we want is lots of that white stuff. When  is the best time to hit the snow after a snowfall? The first fine day after it - good snow and good weather - it doesn't get much better.
