It would certainly be preferable to what is happening in this part of the world at the moment. Sandbags rather than snowmen abound.

Lots of snow forecast for Highlands, however.

14C in Bavaria! Packing the thermals is beginning to look rather optimistic.

Sunny and a little warm in Ireland.

Yes, yes, not the UK, but close by.

Supposed to be here Sunday and Monday. You may yet be lucky if it takes its time moving in!

Just in time for us to fly back from Southern State... (where, actually, it's been alternately 70F and 42F).

(Ah no - on edit - no snow for us being only 4 miles from the coast. Might be icy driving from the airport though).

I'm due to fly out of Luton early Monday morning... I'm keeping an eye on things, because I certainly do NOT want to drive across the Royal County in the snow!

I do not want snow.

I can lend spikes and spare walking poles if necessary.

I enjoyed some pretty serious snow in Jerusalem.  (Following the thunderstorms, gales and cold driving rain in Tel Aviv.) 

Some snow here next week would really do me nicely.  And then I can head back to Israel for the sabbatical and enjoy an early and genuine spring: reliably in the 20s as of mid-March.
