  4. Afternoon met office update This Evening and Tonight: A rather cloudy night is expected with most areas becoming dry and easterly winds continuing to slowly decrease. A sharp frost will affect most parts. Minimum temperature -4 °C. Monday: Monday a little brighter and although mostly dry, a few wintry showers possible in the east later. Daytime thaw of lying snow across lower ground. Further less severe frost overnight. Maximum temperature 5 °C. Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday: Tuesday similar to Monday, but less cold with continued thaw of lying snow. Breezier and milder on Wednesday and Thursday with some rain in places, but also some drier periods.
  5. The last time we had a cold March similar to this year was 2013 what followed in the summer was the driest since 2003 and sunniest since 2006 We also had a prolonged heatwave from July 3rd to 22nd with 30c or more recorded every day from the 13th to 19th Going further back March 2006 was also a cold month June and July that year were very warm to hot followed by a cooler August Be interesting to see what this summer does and if the cold March then warm to hot summer follows
  6. Far less in the way of showers this afternoon as was expected
  7. Met office 16 to 30 day outlook

    UK Outlook for Monday 2 Apr 2018 to Monday 16 Apr 2018: There is significant uncertainty in the forecast throughout this period, but a blocked or slowly changing weather pattern is probable. There will most likely be a balance between Atlantic frontal systems affecting the south and west at times with colder air associated with high pressure out to the northeast. Mixed conditions are likely with wetter than average weather expected across the south, while staying drier and perhaps colder to the north. Further snow is possible, especially in the north. Windy conditions likely at times. Temperatures will likely be below average with further night frosts, and any milder interludes will probably be only brief. Towards mid-month, confidence becomes very low but some warmer days are expected. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast
  8. Meto Uk Further Outlook

    UK Outlook for Friday 23 Mar 2018 to Sunday 1 Apr 2018: The end of the week is likely to be unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by periods of drier, brighter, and sunnier weather. It will often be windy with a coastal gales, at times, and a low risk of severe gales on Friday. Temperatures will be near to normal but locally rather cold, with a risk of overnight frosts. As we head into the final week of March the UK's weather is likely to stay changeable, but with slightly longer periods of drier and bright weather. There remains uncertainty for the Easter Weekend, but there is a signal that we could see weather patterns becoming slow-moving or stalled by cold air and high pressure in the northeast. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast
  9. Just looked out to the garage and shed and I can see dripping from the roofs
  10. Updated warnings Between 10:05 Sun 18th and 23:55 Sun 18th Further snow showers will affect northern England with a few in southeastern parts of England, whilst more significant areas of snow will affect Wales, southern and southwest England. A separate Amber warning is in force for the areas most likely to see disruption from snow. There is a chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel. Damage to trees or other structures increases the chance that power cuts could occur, especially over southwestern parts of England. There is a small chance that some rural communities could become cut off. Icy surfaces increase the risk of accidents and injuries. Significant wind chill and drifting will be added factors, especially over hills. Chief Forecaster's assessment The area of snow affecting Wales, the West Midlands and the West Country this morning will continue to move west, with the most persistent and heavy snow becoming confined to parts of southwest England and the West Country later this afternoon and evening. Snow showers will continue across northern England this afternoon with a few lighter ones in the southeast of England as well. Ice will form on untreated surfaces this evening, particularly where snow has melted through the afternoon. Further accumulations of 1-4 cm of snow are likely, whilst greater amounts will occur locally, mostly covered by the Amber warning area. _______________________________________________________ Between 00:05 Mon 19th and 10:00 Mon 19th Ice is likely to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths. This increases the risk of accidents, as well as injuries due to falls. Further snow is likely across parts of the southwest of England, easing from the north by morning, with a few light snow showers for other southern counties for a time. Chief Forecaster's assessment After a very cold day on Sunday, temperatures are likely to fall well below freezing across many areas into the start of Monday. This will lead to any partly melted snow refreezing. Snow in the south and southwest of England will be slower to clear and may take until morning before dying out completely, whilst some wintry showers may continue to affect eastern coasts, falling onto subzero surfaces. This warning has been updated, chiefly to remove southeast Scotland (covered by a separate warning). https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings#?date=2018-03-18

  12. Met Office loses BBC contract

    Phil Avery on the national forecast the other night took the cloud off as he wanted to show where the snow would be even the forecasters can see the issue between cloud and snow surely that is something they need to fix before next winter
  13. Cold with further snow showers Temp -0.8c
  14. GFS & ECM giving us two different options towards Easter Would be nice if ECM was on the right track and it settled down just in time for the Easter weekend
  15. Morning update from the met office Today: Strong and bitterly cold winds, with sunny intervals and further snow showers. The showers most frequent and heavy through the morning, before tending to become lighter and more scattered later. Snow drifting across hills. Winds easing slowly. Maximum temperature 1 °C. Tonight: A rather cloudy night is expected with most areas becoming dry with easterly winds continuing to slowly decrease. Staying cold with a frost affecting most parts. Minimum temperature -5 °C. Monday: Monday probably a little brighter and mostly dry. Chance of showers in east. Snow will thaw in most places except across highest ground where temperatures remain below freezing. Maximum temperature 5 °C. Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday: Tuesday similar to Monday and slightly milder with snow thawing. Breezier and milder on Wednesday and Thursday with some rain in places, but a lot of dry weather is likely.
