Snow - not forecast

I was just reading the news reports about this morning's snow in parts of Somerset and Dorset (none here in South Devon). The boundary between rain and snow is still a forecasting headache - in this case the weatherman's explanation on the BBC involved the intensity of the precipitation and the consequent cooling, combined with advection of cold air at the surface in the northerly flow behind a small low.
Although Saturday's forecast did mention snow, it was implied it would be a few short-lived snowflakes at the back edge of the rain in eastern areas.
