  1. My grandma lived in Leigh on sea and her porch collapsed (corrugated plastic roof) under the weight of snow in January 1987.
  2. That's what the models are currently saying. It doesn't mean it will. Still time for a backtrack.
  3. I'm not sure how it's possible for it to be "always correct" when it varies so much from run to run. I'm not suggesting it's alone, but saying it must be wrong sometimes.
  4. Obviously that chart won't verify precisely, and furthermore it's a snapshot, but if it did, I'd say you'd have a cold continental flow for all NE of a line from the Solent to South Wales.
  5. Do you mean 'mean' as in average, or 'mean' as in evil? Or...both?
  6. Good chart, but sorry MWB, are those accumulated totals between now and 14/7? Not that low away from South coast, really...
  7. Quite. Today looked like an absolute stinker a week ago. Furthermore - I know this is is model output discussion but- it's interesting to note that apparently neither Meto or BBC are backing the apocalyptic scenario being painted by some on this site. The models are not at one. Professional forecasts suggest that those showing an extremely wet scenario do not represent the form horse. Nobody knows but I suggest that ark building is not yet required.
  8. Struck me that snorefest winters have been had before but rarely with such little cold chasing from models that have offered very little hope at all, so far. Even LRFs have proved good. Is this a sign of model improvement, I wonder?
  9. That's what they get from a UK or NW Europe High - movement of cold air south from Russia or Eastern Scandinavia. Part and parcel.
  10. Interesting run. Generally, my initial reaction would be to laugh and say this will be tomorrow's digital fish wrapper in 12 hours' time. Yet...at under T192 maybe not to be dismissed out of hand. And there have been hints to support it. Let's see whether any other runs support it. If not, then my initial reaction would seem right.
  11. *Voiceover*: "As in previous winters, the dice did not fall...." ?
  12. Hello fellow Roystonian. I currently have 36.8C. @Kirkcaldy Weather nominated us as the hotspot. I hate to disappoint that there is now no recognised station here, but I will do my best as a substitute. That might turn out to be our max. Generally, I would expect Cambridge to be slightly warmer than us as it is lower.
