  1. Another poor forecast by the MetO for this area

      Lancashire really is the snow starved capital of the UK.

      We have been unlucky this year due to the lack of northwesterlies.

      Indeed, all directions bar the NW are useless for us.

  2. One of the oldest derbies in the world is being played today and not one TV broadcaster is televising it. COYB three points are needed today and increase our unbeaten run to 35 years!

      Yep a draw looks the most likely result, something which will help neither side.

      It's turning into a strange season in the Championship and one where I don't think the usual 50 points will guarantee survival. I can't see either of ending up in a relegation scrap but neither can I see us challenger for a date at Wembley in May.

      I think 52 points at least will be required to stay up, a tall order for us with the way we are playing.

      The lest said about football matches that last longer than cricket matches the better I think lol

  3. I've just received the best news ever. I've got my appointment for a knee replacement and allograft surgery for the 28th March. This is better news than any lottery win or impending blizzard. :)

      Thanks guys for all your kind words.

  4. Loving the GFS in deepest FI, would be the snowiest part of the winter, sorry spring if that verified. Unfortunately my confidence in FI charts is the same as me winning the lottery.

      Personally I think all model runs should end at the 144hrs mark.

    2. I remember Atlantic 252

      I remember Atlantic 252

      would make model thread boring mind you, i remember 5th Dec which set a record over 'that ecm' purely in FI

  5. I managed to get out and about for a nice walk in the woods today, still on crutches and now in a lot of pain. But boy was it worth it, absolute glorious day lots of wildlife including an active hive of honey bees.

    1. UV-RAY

      UV-RAY

      Indeed LB, at least I can get out now and again and I'm still here. There are people far worse off than me.

      7C max here yesterday, warm in the sun but temps are near normal for mid to late February, hardly seen any insects at all, proper spring temps widespread into the early to mid teens is a good while away

    3. UV-RAY

      UV-RAY

      I was quite surprised at the amount of activity outside a wild honeybees hive at this time of year.

  6. With winter drawing to an end, we can now start to evaluate LRF for this season, tbh none of them have been spectacular and if anything it just goes to show how difficult it is in making a LRF for the UK. Hats off to all those who try, but IMO we are still a long way off in making an accurate call for any season,perhaps we will never be able to correctly call a season for the UK, but I still enjoy reading them all .
  7. I'm refusing to be taken for a ride with the next projected cold spell, yes it will get colder but i still think the models are overplaying the signal for snow events.

    1. I remember Atlantic 252

      I remember Atlantic 252

      karyo agree, but a bit contradictory to your post above

    2. Bottesford

      It's the sunshine that's the issue - cold & sunny with frosty nights - yes. But endless low cloud with a raw wind - erm no thanks give me nice mild SWlys over that anytime!

    3. gottolovethisweather

      gottolovethisweather

      nice mild southwesterlies in spring, summer and perhaps autumn but wanting them in winter is absurd. Of course, each to their own but wanting sw'rly winds in winter is akin to wanting endless northerlies in June. Mind you, did that not happen last year?

  8. Well after enduring the last 9 months on crutches and no end in sight, I finally saw a consultant who is capable of sorting my knee out. There's a long waiting time but I'll finally get a knee replacement and reconstructive surgery to my extensor mechanism.

  9. Actually Piers has been nearer the mark this winter than many of our so called experts on here, it appears Piers is easy to make fun off here, but his record is as good as anyones here, sure he gets it wrong at times but look at the Net weather winter forecast, busted in December.
  10. Sunshine and showers a temp of 7.1c and heating turned off, what's there not to like, fabulous!

    1. Aaron

      Aaron

      The heating is off, but will be on later I'm sure, it doesn't feel warm outside, especially with that wind,

    2. Evening thunder

      I windy sunny showery like days like today too.

  11. What a lovely day, almost forgot what it was like to actually have some weather instead of grey laden skies with neither frost nor snow

  12. It's an article RP, not peer reviewed science. I would put up a link but posting from iPad at the moment.
  13. Don Easterbook wrote an excellent article on this over on WUWT. Off course some here will dismiss it as it's not been IPCC approved, LOL.
  14. If I had to give this winter marks out of ten so far, then I'm afraid it would be a four. Really poor cool spell IMBY, current temp 2.4c. I recorded more frost and sub zero temps in Autumn.

    1. Eugene

      Eugene

      9/10 here, max's 0C to -2C for over a week with quite alot of snow, fantastic cold spell

    2. UV-RAY

      UV-RAY

      RD, I'm commenting on conditions IMBY, not yours. Put me on ignore then if it bothers you that much.

    3. Bristle boy

      Bristle boy

      5 out of 10 from me. IMBY - BTL has been on the edge most of the time. Yes, we had a really good fall on Friday. But i'd expect quite a few more snow days, even in an average winter. I'm prob biased towards the classic winters of late 70s/early 80s. Still a few weeks left though.

  15. I've only recorded six frosts all winter, it's a strange cold spell.

    1. UV-RAY

      UV-RAY

      I've seen snow, but temps have been very disappointing staying above freezing day and night bar one during this cold spell. That applies for much of the NW, as we where under constant cloud cover, due to a SE influence in wind direction.

      Faux cold ??

  16. When does the cold spell start?

    1. Aaron

      Aaron

      10 days ago.

    2. UV-RAY

      UV-RAY

      Maybe it will get colder here when it ends then. :)

  17. Worst cold spell ever for those in the West,I've only recorded three nights frost and sub zero temps. Easterly blocks are pants

    1. UV-RAY

      I know, but the gallows humour keeps me going BB. :)

      Unlucky mate i live next to the River Ribble and have had snow on the ground for 7 days.Hopefully tonight will be good for you.

  18. Another non event for many parts of NW England,

  19. Another damp squib for many in the NW of England. Temp here 4.2c after enduring cold rain for most of the morning. I hate easterlies with a passion, only two have delivered in 34 years. Fingers crossed for a pattern change.

    1. UV-RAY

      UV-RAY

      No this a blocking hightto our NE/ East, I'm referrring to a proper NW blast with air sourced from Greenland/ Norther Canada, aka January 1984

    2. Thundery wintry showers

      Thundery wintry showers

      If only NW'lys were generally cold enough- in terms of potency January 1984 was to NW'lys as January 1987 was to E'lys!

      A February 1996 style frontal event for the NW is not out of the question in the current setup though.

    3. UV-RAY

      UV-RAY

      I agree TWS, January 84 was a rather unusual setup, February 96 brought one of heaviest falls on record. Off course these are rare events, but Easterlies bar the 96 and 78/79 ones rarely deliver away from pennine locations.

  20. Not a particular good update after the weekend for us in the West, again.
  21. After reading Ian F latest post in the MOD, they are at presently leaning towards the ECM. So for the short / medium term the above looks highly likely.
  22. The latter bit should get upgraded within the next few days and read milder weather towards the SW and the threat of wintry weather further North, or something like that one hopes.
  23. What intrigues me if intrigues is the right word is do they already have these stories pre-printed and just tinker around with the temps on offer, as it seems all of them have the same apocalyptic headlines.
  24. I think Brian is summing up what the models are showing very well, I still favour the atlantic to win this round.
