  2. 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 .

    If the ECM, ICON, switch back i will go skinny dipping in lake Windermere lol. It's the other models as well though they took a big step towards the Icon.

    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 .

  4. 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 ..

  5. 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 .❄️

    Met office update, no cold until end of Jan NOT week 3 as previously suggested. 

    The wait goes on. 

    The game goes on ,but tomorrow's update could be different again .The warming as taken place ,I'm sure we will soon see some brilliant charts appearing, unexpected ,sudden ,mind blowing output . I'm up the wood shed right now ,it's freezing ,frost as just melted ,we await this evening's output, STELLAS all round gang.

  7. Good morning cold lovers .I do like the look of the 192 hrs chart on the ECM this morning ,not taking it as gospel but this evenings run could be interesting ,perhaps more in our favour ,lets keep our fingers and toes crossed .it does look like things become more mobile as we reach around the latter stages of  the GFS , so perhaps some hope for us snow lovers .i know we are all waiting behind the settee hoping for that magical run  of charts that show cold snow frost etc but we must remain Strong .Todays met office update due out soon ,perhaps we can gleen something from that .AN update from my local squirrels ,they are out enjoying the mild weather ,but going around chattering ,think they are saying Block moving north prepare for winter ,stock pile the food ,but i may be mistaken .take care all ,Stellas all round  and enjoy yesterdays left overs .?:yahoo:.ps my dog is getting excited ,perhaps something afoot .

  8. good day to all my fellow posters on this very interesting forum , probably the best top weather forum on this planet .I have very good friends in Canada [ just north of Toronto ) They emigrated back in the mid 1970 s and my late wifes very best friend as worked in the weather business but now retired .I have had the pleasure on many occasions to visit weather centres in Canada and in this country ,especially when i was a Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society ,but now demoted as i stopped paying my dues 5 yrs ago .The point is ,looking 5 days ahead with modern technology is prone to mistakes ,looking 7 days ahead is a head ache ,10 DAYS AHEAD , A BIT OF A HEAD BANGER .And us Snow lovers are trying to predict what will be happening beyond that .As i type i expect the latest Met office outlook is ready to go on line ,for me personally i follow this ,but only out to about 15 days , i always look at the ECM up to 7 days ,so as of now i do think better cold weather charts are just around the corner . with the SSW going on its going to be hard for any forecast model to get to grips with forecasts charts in our Neck of the woods .On about woods i have been up the wood shed this morning early ,had a good conversation with myself , checked on the local wild life and came to the conclusion that a big upgrade is a coming ,even the local squirrels are collecting peoples recycling ,two more squirrels seen wearing scarves up the woods today .Right gang ,must start preparing for tomorrows food ,i have my two boys coming plus grand daughter and a friend of mine ,also the dog ,i will be regularly popping in to this forum ,happy Christmas to all STellas all round ,enjoy .:yahoo::yahoo:?.
