Decided to drop into the ground and check it out ready for Tuesday night.
Despite this snow there isn't any on the pitch it has all been blown against the perimeter walls.
The Wimblebury terrace is clear however the Heath Hayes end terrace has snow with one big drift.
With a thaw forecast I don't think waterlogging will be a problem it's just a simple case of will the ground be frost free by Tuesday?
The approaches to the ground are relatively clear just frosty.
Has the grass can clearly be seen and with Monday and Tuesdsy forecast to be very mild I would say it's seventy thirty that it will be on.
So don't get making other arrangements you may regret it.

We are forecast some relatively mild temperatures on Monday and Tuesday so I agree that it is likely that the game will go ahead. Much needed given the fixture pile up that we will face if we continue to win our cup fixtures.

Do your predictions include the four or five inches if snow we had last night?

It's (almost) like 1963 all over again, for those of us of a certain age who remember that....

(albeit in those days the schools didn't close and everyone made it into work.... :twisted: )

On my way round from Tesco dropped in to see how the ground was doing for Tuesday night.
The pitch is almost clear of snow apart from the main stand side which does have a light covering.
The Heath Hayes terrace still has snow on it and the drift is slowly reducing.
The outside areas could best be described has slushy.
Underneath the main stand there appears to be a waterfall from somewhere above and appears to be close to flooding.
Wouldn't want that to overflow onto the pitch and equipment underneath may be at risk.
Whether this is burst pipes or just thawing snow above I don't know.
So I would still say seventy thirty on with the main danger coming from flooding from underneath main stand.

Bradford City v MK Dons JUST postponed, waterlogged pitch.

World gone mad, have they not heard of early inspections in the Football League?!

:roll: :doh:

The weather forecast for Monday is a little uncertain. It’s either going to rain heavily or snow depending on which forecast you look at. Either way the pitch conditions will be far from ideal.

Not sure if Keys Park counts as "higher ground" for tomorrow's possible weather warnings, but it will certainly take a stud...

The weather forecast is better than one might have been led to believe,so I've no doubt the pitch will be in excellent condition thanks in no small way to the grounds people.
The weather looks good after Monday which means the pitch should stand up well to its imminent battering.
After Monday I'll miss a few but I'm really looking forward to seeing Atherton collieries at KP next Thursday.

Bad planning on your part there! :mrgreen:

I was out from 2300 until 0700, 0-3c, steady rain and sleet (though colleagues who cover Hednesford/Rugeley and Telford report snow)

The pitch will have taken a right soaking, if the three games on it this week survive I wouldn't want to be trying to walk across it on Sunday!

Plenty of postponements in the top two NL tiers too

http://www.thenationalleague.org.uk/match-info/fixtures

(Barrow v Flyde postponed to Tuesday, that's quick thinking, if a tad optimistic...)

Kidder might have been my plan C (and it's still on at the moment) but other circumstances have intervened....

Start of Birmingham Cricket League delayed by a week due to soggy pitches.

Stourbridge aren't in it any more but no doubt all the feeder leagues will be doing the same.

Just as well or the WMG might find football and cricket being played on it at the same time....
