    The FIFA World Cup - Brazil 2014

    They can only beat what's in front of them, no matter how they do it. Germany look good but you can imagine Brazil in the semis, and the Dutch always have looked dodgy at the back.

  5. It's not light at 10pm anymore, some Siberian town is harvesting, and the Daily Star has their top weather correspondents at the fore for the biggest September snow scare ever to grind Britain to a halt, and on an internet forum, a bunch of nutjob enthusiasts are tracking white pixels spread westwards on a map. Life's good. Previous thread here http://forum.netweather.tv/topic/74146-snow-and-ice-in-the-northern-hemisphere-201213/
  6. Only 18 days until the days get better shorter... I jest of course, love the light days, plenty of parties/football to do over the summer, but it's not long until the real fun comes back! Waking up at 5am and it being light is always weird for me, but it's great to be out until 10pm whilst it's light, but nothing compares to walks in the dark at 7/8am in the winter, and even coming back home while it's dark, more eery/festive.
  7. 2 weeks of exams and then it's 10 weeks off!

    Winter 2013-2014 Discussion- Part 2

    My winter f'cast was effectively, a mild start, staying mild, turning cooler and wetter in January and cold in February. It was wrong. Probably spent the majority of winter expecting that shift in late Jan/early Feb... and it didn't surface. Roll on winter 2014/15!

    Your months of year in order of preference

    This winter has taught me... July June May AugustApril September December November March January October February
  12. Just had a look at the EC, that's a suite and a half, especially compared to previous... Time to buckle in- winters REALLY about to start; caution is always urged though, as many on here know...
  13. just had a look at the latest EC- pattern is there now, it's going to get colder from now on; have a feeling this first spell is only the beginning

    Winter 2013-2014 Discussion- Part 2

    I feel as though December didn't go to plan as much as I'd like- mainly due to the lack of any actual cold spell. I'm still optimistic about Jan and Feb; on a limb with the ECMWF atm; but you got to hope that we see that Strat finally see that breakthrough.
  15. think December belongs to the vortex; Jan the interlude and Feb the block is dominant imo

      Fingers crossed you're correct. I don't mind waiting for the white gold to arrive :-)

  16. just seen the latest ECM... merry Christmas and a happy New Year!!

      Are you talking about the ECM 32 dayer? What does it show?

  17. 4.7c. Cold at times, particularly around early-mid month and Christmas time, lots of nearby high pressure though, and a mean SW flow.

    I'll need to update my Extra to see the NMM but yeah, pretty minimal to me- though there will be windows w/ colder air, just got to hope we get lucky and see the first fall.

    First wintry graphic I've seen since March on the HR-EC, here we go...!

    I do believe that we are in for a rather more prolonged, cold spell, rather than snap- it may gradually take some time to get into; but the EC again, is very encouraging and the 216/240 profile leaves you begging for more. 168 is my favourite (IMBY) frame though. -6c to -8c uppers with such a large temp difference? Convection overload, plenty of snow for eastern areas. Plenty of good stuff from the N and NW beforehand for the West as well. All in all, it does look pretty promising.

    Perfection from the EC; best chart I've seen since March or beforehand. Very interesting times ahead, as Nick says, general pattern > local details... but looking at H5 and NWP recently, reason to be excited.

    Model Output Discussion 1st Nov.2013

    My, my, the UKMO has a friend. Classic troughing into central Europe- strong MLB ridging into Greenland with a good retrogressive motion on it, a little unorthodox WAA up there- but the end result is a slack, wintry N'ly for much of the UK at 144. EC's done its job again.

    Model Output Discussion 1st Nov.2013

    Just noticed how synoptically top notch the 0z EC was, especially in comparison to recent suites. UKMO 12z looked good as well, time to see whether the EC 12z can keep up any NWP momentum- anything akin to the 0z would be good, as such a solution moving into a more reliable timeframe can only be a good thing. I think a NW/N flow, turning NE, before high pressure builds is likely. What happens after is up for grabs, but I think after this wknd, the likelyhood for it to turn colder is very much on- just, how cold.
