      You could easily replace England with London and Canada with Newcastle ;)

  1. Is anyone elses PSN down? It's under maintanence apparently, but some people can still login :S

    1. SummerNSnow


      10pm tonight if it's sorted! My O/H can get on, but not my son.

    2. Love Snow

      Love Snow


      Update: PSN maintenance is requiring more time than expected, and is now expected to complete tonight. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    3. NUT


      Mine still not working. Getting a little tedious the constant maintemence

  2. One thing to remember, even though the days are longer February is statistically the coldest and most severe of Winter Months in the UK. What a spell this could turn out to be...

  3. GFS going for -10*C for Central London this Sunday Morning. Incredible if true, but then saying that if Heavy Snowfall does go ahead those temperatures would be expected right??

    1. Optimus Prime

      Optimus Prime

      -10c would be a record for C.London. That isn't going to happen.

    2. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      yeah I agree -10C would be exceptionally unlikely to happen in this set up, though the 12z GFS did show it for that area by 9pm on the 19th!


      it even showed -6C tonight..

    3. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      Apparently, -18C in 17th century. But most recent was -10.6*C

  4. Why do people look for downgrades and the end of cold in the model, after searching for it nearly for 3 months. It's beyond me, it's only just starting to arrive. No wonder it wants to get lost...

  5. What happened to the ECM??????

    1. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      Agreed, but it makes it horrible/nervously watching :(

    2. karyo


      The gfs 6z is the worst now!

    3. Karl83


      gfs 6z is not so great to my untrained eye.

  6. London now showing sleet/light snow for Saturday night on the MetOffice website......

  7. November 2010, GFS out on it's own. ECM says Foxtrot Oscar, only for ECM to snuggle up.... here we go again in January 2013!!!

    1. Slowpoke


      We hope & pray!!!

  8. 500 hPA going for a Greenland high, I remember in 2010 the models went for an easterly and Scandinavian High with a Polar Vortex lobe over or close to Greenland. What's similar this time too, is the 500hPa heights is showing above normal over Greenland and Lower over most of Europe, just like 2010... What gives??

    1. NickyB


      That'll do me just fine thanks :-)

    2. TAFKAP


      Sounds good to me.

  9. With the MetOffice forecast Days 6 to 30 so subjective with many words suggesting "turning increasingly wintry into next weekend" and "rather cold and tending colder" to the later period being a lot colder. Surely that's not a good sign?

  10. Heathrow for the year is on 634.56mm rainfall - and it's still filling up!!

    1. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      Yeah, I guess if it was wet from New Year it would have been extremely high.

  11. Wow, cannot wait to see what the ensembles bring... New Years will be fun at this rate. Good old Northerlies, if they show in the models they don't downgrade as much as a blinking easterly... http://cdn.nwstatic.co.uk/gfsimages/gfs.20121219/18/153/h500slp.png

      Not necessarily over us though :)

  12. Wow - 3rd consecutive run of pressure rising Northwest over Greenland of us as energy comes out of Newfoundland. Polar Vortex setting up shop over Scandinavia, are we onto something?? http://forum.netweather.tv/topic/75310-winter-model-discussion-the-hunt-for-cold-18z-171212/#entry2450239

    1. Aaron


      Wishful thinking!

      Still looking likely :D

    1. Mark Bayley

      My thoughts to, i.e. look N/NW for any colder shots over xmas period and into new year!

    2. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      Definately, bloody hate easterlies.. never come to reality.

    3. Mark Bayley

      They always seem to create the most drama!

  13. We love you Chelsea We do, Oh CHELSEA WE LOVE YOU!!

  14. Is it me or do I really like northerlies because the air is so fresh!!??

      Love northerlies for the crisp dry air with sub zero dewpoints and visibility to infinity!

    4. Eugene


      Have to completely agree with bottesford and shuggee, love arctic northerlies for the freshness and beautiful blue skies they bring, northeasterlies sourced from polar regions can be great and so can southeasterlies off a cold france in winter, direct easterlies 9 times out of 10 are pants

      Indeed GLTW The UK doesn't need to be a superpower - many countries that arean't or don't try to be (take scandinavia) have a better quality of live than us, and at the end of the day that's all that matters.

      We may have enough flat land to house 500 million people, but it would be horrible then, and where would all the food and water required come from?

    3. Evening thunder

      Good to see the UK out of recession though.

    4. gottolovethisweather


      Sm, I am pretty sure it is a smokescreen though. The tories are simply up to their outdated tricks again IMO. Anyway, enough of my ranting, I'll be hitting the bottle hard if this continues and then waking up tomorrow wearing my rose tinted shades. The UK is still a wonderful place in spite of all its issues, we are a very fortunate bunch. Iraq, Libya, Syria, Japan anyone?

      Cloud appears to be gone but pretty hazy though, can only see blueness if you look up. I prefer the cleaner air of Devon lol.

    3. Bottesford


      Well the drizzle has stopped.. that's about it!

  17. Out of interest, why does the colder colors (Polar Vortex) go further south over the US than it does the UK/Europe? Even though we are similar latitudes.

    1. summer blizzard

      summer blizzard

      Land, water holds greater atmospheric warmth.

    2. shotski


      What charts are you looking at ? blue may not mean cold.

  18. Anyone watch the One Show just now? They had the MetOffice aircraft in one of the storms looking at the rain. Was rather cool! :D

  19. I dont think there's been a Summer's day in a long while where Blue sky has been achieved in London, hazy yes but not this good... :D

  20. http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2643743 - going by this... a possible decent Summery Spell!
  21. This filing a flight plan for the Olympics Restricted Airspace is absolute B********!!! - So far 1hr wait for a confirmation message, pffft!!

    1. Robbie Garrett

      Robbie Garrett

      Approaching 2hrs... pffft!!

  22. Monday 25°C, Tuesday 30°C, Wednesday 32°C, Thursday 28°C, Friday 27°C.... Summer's definately coming. http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2643743

    1. Milhouse


      I want 30c. A Summer without reaching 30c is always a disappointment.

    2. Scorcher


      It doesn't happen very often either Milhouse, even 2007 just managed 30C. Plenty of time yet as in theory it can happen until early October as last year proved!

    3. Eugene


      What absolute nonsense those temps are for tuesday/wednesday, looks a pleasant dry warm spell not a heatwave
