  4. The next person to use an App forecast and go into one in here will be banned ! How many times can you say the same thing, apps are useless , automated forecasts are crap. The weather doesn’t behave according to an app. Will people please stop checking apps every 10 minutes and just wait and see what happens . Moan over ! NS newly assigned App moderator !

  5. Bang on Catch - given the strength of the warming and the sheer beauty of the split dynamics it has pretty much been a textbook transfer of the split from stratosphere to troposphere. Here first off to frame this is the seminal Baldwin and Dunkerton Paper on NAM dynamics - NAO/AO From this study you can see the impacts of the SSW elongated over time as the warming down wells and impacts on the troposphere( where our weather happens). Then, to this years episode - this tweet from Amy Butler tells the story that means we had the instant tropospheric response that the perfect

  7. Morning all Obviously, focus on the immediate both in terms of snowfall and the complex LP moving WNW and its interaction with the cold air over the British Isles. That's for others - I'll look further ahead to where we might be by Sunday March 11th or Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday or Jackpot Day for a pub with a carvery. Starting as always with the ECM 00Z OP at T+240: A shallow LP is over the north east of the British Isles and winds are light here but further south and west winds are from a NW'ly direction. The LP is part of a complex trough elongated north-south

  10. I’m from Liverpool but have been based in Spain since the start of the year. I used to spend a lot of my holidays in Scotland , I love the place and the people. I’m really enjoying seeing these pictures and amazing snowfall your all getting. Continue with the videos and pictures they’re making me smile after feeling a bit home sick. Your a good bunch on here. Wish I was up there now and not in this boring 20 degree heat. Hope you all enjoy the snow and obviously all stay safe out there!!! Keep this great thread going!!!

  11. Morning All 2 key items of note this morning * All models agree on the Eastern track of the PPN today -still with varying degrees of moisture - however London is certainly now in the game as well as all the original areas * UKMO 00z now follows the ECM in terms of 500MB profiles & extending the cold all the way through the run, whats interesting ( almost incredible ) is the now, solid continuation of the E / SE convective flow for the N / NE part of the UK ( accompanied by low heights ) as well as the continued risk of frontal weather pushing in from the S / SW turning to sn

  12. If you are still up and able to do so and it is safe to do so you should get out a wee walk just now, it's beautiful. Very rare to have the streets to myself and unlike anything I've ever seen in Motherwell before.

  13. Not a lot to add really. First saw the possibility of a SSW end of December (through classic precursor pattern in trop) - thought it might occur late Jan, but had to wait until 11th Feb - so that forecast proved reasonable. Main thing was how the SSW developed from then. The area of the split was favourable (from Atlantic to Pacific) and by early Feb I could see that the first phase was of the SSW was the destruction of the Siberian vortex. This opened the door for any downwelling to increase the likelihood of height rises to the NE. But also by this time, significantly the second residual str

  18. This week has highlighted many thing for me. 1) That modelling, even in ths digital age, is still remarkably unreliable for some weather events depsite what the “public’ are told about the increasing accuracy of forecasting. 2) the population as a whole do not have the resilience that they had 5 years ago, let alone 27 years ago. To hear a man virtually crying in tantrum on the SE news that he couldn’t get his train to Tonbridge was laughable. Prevously there would have been a typically British shrug of the shoulders and gone to the pub instead after helping their neightbours out first. In all

A few years back everyone in the West Country were celebrating a rash of Storms that were in Biscay and 8 hours later the SE got slammed all unforecasted Expect the Unexpected

  26. There are some awesome drifts now, the farmer has dug out the road to the main road but it's filling back in. Main road is a 3ft deep 12ft wide snowplough shaped channel through the snow drifts, also filling back in.

  28. Look, this snow now is bonus snow if you have it! Light snow on and off all day across the region, then the main course later So can you please stop the frankly wrong posts of non event, it’s if nothing else pessimistic, but actually dangerous if people look in here see a post and head out!

  29. Just wanted to say thanks again to Knocker for his extremely informative and well written updates. For those very much in the minority such as myself who regularly read these pages simply to acquire accurate information as to the forecast itself, they really are greatly appreciated.

  30. Today the continuing evolution takes on another phase so best to start with a quick appraisal of where we stand this morning. Currently the is a very severe frost with heavy snow showers still persisting, predominately still in the north/north east But as can be seen from the above fax Emma is getting organized and by 1800 is in the Bay of Biscay moving north as are also the associated fronts with the upper and warm fronts having already encroached the south. In fact the 00 Herstmonceux sounding indicates the approaching front quite well at 600mb These are the bare b
