  4. Hi gang ,mates ,friends ,fellow coldies ,hot lovers etc etc ,we have a fantastic forum here on net weather ,there will always be some sort of upset ,but hey take a look around other weather forums sites etc across the northern hemisphere and you will see that our forums are much more lively with loads of information for learning and enjoying .Thanks to all the posters who post weather charts , and go out of their way to give us the info to enjoy our hobby ,three cheers to all of them ,ps im looking forward to some Zonal ,take care all cheers .
  5. Rain radar showing an intense line of rain followed by several hours of yuk weather . No gardening today .may study the very long range charts to see if northern blocking can set up this coming winter 2019/2020 , you never know .My new diet is going well ,meat veg fruit ,but today sausage sandwiches ,batten down the hatches and take care ,cheers .
  6. This in coming storm ,i would say as the potential for damage .Track ,speed ,pressure and very important Timing ,just remember the great storm of 1987 ,passed across england in the early hours ,which was a blessing for some another 4hrs later and a few million people would have been out of their beds and on the roads .keep an eye on latest developements ,it could move further north or south , but please gang i personally got caught up in the burns day storm with fallen trees in front of me and behind ,so POtential ,we have been warned , certainly crazy weather ,Stellas on me ,cheers .
  7.

  8. Its been painfull watching this very mild period unfold but i have accepted it and now looking forward to some gardening .Looking at todays charts March looks like starting more Zonal , so who knows we could get some polar or arctic flows ,with some snow about .Great forum on net weather , certainly a great place to learn , take care all and dont forget the Sun cream ,sausages are on ,brown sauce on table cheers .
  9. Hi gang ,just to let you know that i am on board , im reading the posts , im hoping that we may see the opposite of the present synoptics .And tonights charts have given some joy to the COLD and Snow Hunters ,cheers .
  10. on my return from the wood shed i had a look at the GFS , well certainly a big improvement and lets hope that continues . I always feel that if it turns very mild with no hope ,then perhaps something is lurking around the corner ,a STraw clutch perhaps , but certainly on the 12th of February i for one am still up for the Hunt for cold .still awaiting Exeters update ,so i can try and read between the lines . Thanks again for all those that contribute to this great forum ,let the Hunt resume ,cheers .
  11. Good morning gang, im going up the wood shed with me sausage sandwiches brown sauce .going to do what i did this time last year , so expect big changes in the charts later today ,ecm will show a stonking northern block at 192 hrs ,gfs later today will smell the Coffee ,met office will mention wide spread snowfall ,and the express will have 8 pages of Snow hell , jack daws are all flocking today ,squirrels are barricading their homes with straw ,help iv run out of prozack .I do like the ecm at 10 days , repeat 100 times , and here is the weather forecast , change expected soon ,cheers gang STellas all round .
  12. Just thought i would let all Cold Hunters know that Legritter is about and ready for a good HUNT ,Something is brewing nothing is set in stone .If i may just add todays exeter update , they are seeing high pressure and hinting at something wintry , i know many will say that they have been saying this all winter so far but we have the possibility of high pressure setting up in a good position .So come on Gang , C H Q S ,Cold Hunters Quick Step , sausage sandwiches ,STellas ,cheers
  13. Sorry gang ,i think iv reposted my last post ,but regards tonights charts ,things could be falling right for us its just very very slow and painfull ,just imagine a pot of snow at the end , worth the wait , cheers all .

  16. Hi gang ,with regards the outlook ,some juicy looking charts about can't wait for the Ecm tonight from behind the settee with the dog wagging his tail if they are good .This sub forum reminds me of my military days we are all a little bit naughty ,but we are the wild bunch ,still highly trained and will HUNT THE COLD AND SNOW , present weather front on radar looks impressive, is this the Advance guard of Winter ,hope so let's get the mild mush of this Friday out the way then hope and pray ,cheers gang .
  17. Better go skinny dipping quick as the water will be frozen over soon , charts from Ecm are on a wobble again , but still we have a cold signal ,fingers crossed ,cheers gang , back to bed now to dream ,cheers .
  18. Good afternoon gang ,it was certainly great to see this mornings ECM give us coldies a Boost at its later stages .in any case tonights will again be different on its later frames lets just hope its upgrades or as we say STella runs .so at the moment it looks like next weekend is gearing up to some very interesting wintry synoptics , Low pressure Low 850s , Detail yet to be established ,and we do have the professionals on our side . Having friends of mine in North america and Canada also in to the Weather as given me the info to read their weather forums etc ,and i can say that our Forum is probably the best in the Norther Hemisphere ,And that also is echoed by them .Certainly a very good week coming up as we firm up on our first real shot at winter proper , there will be losers as usual ,but taking all available info at the moment ,and the fact that our local Road maintenance company which is located almost near my home have been out the last few days filling up the grit bins in our village ,and actually have received many large lorry loads of new salt etc gives me a clue as to what memo the met office have sent them as regards the potential for about the 18th /20th JAN onwards ,all very devious of me ,and the fact that Bristol airport have also been given warnings as a neighbour works there , all very Top secret of course but fun putting parts of the jig saw together , { a Serious post , Top secret added for fun .}Let the fun begin ,tonights charts are eagerly awaited ,so crack open some STellas ,and perhaps some Sausage sandwiches to keep our energy levels up ,cheers .
  19. Hi gang ,I may be lurking about but it's great reading all the posts .Although this morning's runs aren't yet showing the perfect synoptics just yet ,I feel that the ecm in its later stages could go on to produce some STONKING charts soon .must Cleen behind my Settee for tonight's runs , cheers gang Stellas on me .
  20. Good morning Gang ,sausage sandwiches with brown sauce , a coffee then up the wood shed to prepare for hopefully the arrival of winter later next week .we have Grit bins in several places in our village , all up till now still have last years leftovers in them but hey Bingo this morning the Lads have been out topping them up . Iwent out and spoke to the gang filling them up and they told me that their bosses had been informed of wintry weather arriving in about a weeks time ,they also said that all the gritting lorries were being checked over at the yard in preparation .i am almost opposite the yard and the several vehicles have been moved this morning ,and yes they are checking them over .On with the charts ,nothing really very wintry showing yet but looks like some very deep and active lows will start to track south east next week , and i am expecting the main charts soon to start to show some good winter interest .this is certainly a slow burner , take care all and catch you all up soon ,Stellas all round , cheers ..
  21. Yes this current gfs run looking interesting , squirrels take note ,it will freeze your nuts off .
  22. For me please keep the hunt for cold forum . I think over the next several days we will start to see some really good charts appearing, not a hunch, but a gradual process bringing much lower 850 mb temperatures south , and possibly STORMY conditions, for me this is a start in the right direction and it's only January 6th , I'm excited ,STELLAS and Sausage naps with brown sauce are on me ,think I meant Naps, damn BAPS .CHEERS .
  23. Morning gang , I am liking the last few frames of the ECM , possible cold zonal .ok not what many of us crave but with a bit of luck if we can get some high pressure to the north of that lot we could start to see some good charts . Very early days as far as the SSW and it's affects , so all to play for , great forum , let the hunt continue , STELLAS all round .
