  1. Im not saying a word ...just 24 hrs earlier...I kept saying it and I’ll say it again you can’t forecast snow 48hrs In this country let alone 10 days , deary me
  2. So here we go... everyone in the model room getting overly excited... I’m not saying anything... we have been here many times before...weather quest have said the chance of this happening at this stage only 22%... I. Two days time I bet it be all downgraded ...watch this space
  3. Morning All, so first day of Winter starts of with 3c and some damp conditions here in Norfolk the odd shower coming of the coast overnight. I do get annoyed looking at the model comments. I know it’s a hobby for lots of them I get that... but why do they always get excited looking at charts 10 days away that show snow and freezing temperatures. We live on a island surrounded by relatively warm seas and as we know chances of a snowy December is very rare .look at 2010 yes it happened but It was a 1 in 50 year event. Met office and Weatherquest in Norwich have all gone for a mild winter with occasionally cold snaps which in my eyes is a typical UK winter. Those in the model forum looking for weeks of freezing temperatures need to move to Russia if that’s what you want.
  4. Morning, well Seems to be a lot of ifs buts or maybes for the heat this coming week. Last Wednesday temperatures were expected of around 32c for Norwich, now 20c due to the slight shift In wind direction with it coming of the North Sea, I think that’ will be the big player to see where the highest temperature will be for the UK... personally I think the UK June record will be safe just...
  5. Last 2 weeks is the most rain we have seen in this part of Norfolk for around 18months, as some already said we had the best summer in years 2018, and had a very mild and dry winter and spoilt with feb and April. We all knew 2019 summer was going to be awful. I have a feeling it’s going to be similar to 2012 I really do. On the bright side if there is any my grass is green compared how brown it was by mid June
  6. Not great outlook this morning, we must knew this was going to happen after the summer last year, it was never going to be repeated. One fact Iceland who had the coldest and wettest Summer on record last year due to our constant HP, which sent all the LP to them have had stunning weather last couple of weeks and looks that way for the next couple weeks too.
  7. I totally agree with you , absolutely stunning afternoon 14c here not a breath of wind felt like mid May, sorry to all the losers out there on the model thread who are hating this, get a life lads! head to Canada for the week if you want the cold.
  8. Let’s all breath , why an earth the people In the model thread still wanting a mega freeze.? I just don’t get it they have hardly mentioned what’s happened in the last few days . I’m ready to really annoy them and tell them I’m looking for spring like weather..... roll on the warmth!
  9. Can anyone in the Norfolk Suffolk area last time we had snow that came in from the west that has caused distribution? Everytime this event Comes in from the west, we either have the front fizzle out, or cold wet/ sleety rain, I’d be absolutely shocked if I was to come here on Wednesday morning to say we have a white out.
  10. The met office has had the same 30 day outlook since mid December, covering all eventually
  11. I know lots of people on the model thread desperate to look for anything cold. I love telling them the world as a whole as we all know is warming rapidly chances of long cold winters in this Country is never going to happen they hate hearing it. Yes we will get events like the “beast from the east” nothing more. This current mild weather is boring but if it saves me on heating cost, than I’m happy with that!
  12. Morning, looks like the general weather pattern for the rest of the month is your typical December mix of mild and odd day of chilly air. Nothing to get to excited about. This follows on excalty like the last 6 Decembers. We all seem to forget especially the MODEL forum that our planet is warming the days of long term cold has gone. Only short lived events like “the beast from the east” may only occur every 10 years or so. The model thread now turning their attention to the new year , but again any of you guys remember 2 months of jan and feb being well below average.?.. apart from 2013 we haven’t seen anything since. I may be wrong , but as other posters have pointed out on here I’m sure some of our model guys are feeding the “two weekchart” that always appears to have snow and cold to the daily express. Ha!
  13. Lol, the great biggest con from the Met Office, the guys up north not happy! Just very cold rain not the snow they was hoping. The hunt for cold thread has also gone absolutely quite. I know model watching is their hobby but we can’t even get this forecast right 24hrs before the event let alone posters putting up charts 2 weeks away and peeing themselves with excitement and then chunking all their dolls out the pram couple days later because the cold has gone. Always worth a chuckle
  14. Completely agree, makes me laugh they get so excited and lose sleep when any sign that snow has gone. Charts 2 weeks ahead in winter will never be reliable. this weekend prime example!!
