  1. Its brilliant to see so many posters come out of their Summer Hiberanation, gearing up during this Autumn and to the coming winter! This place is buzzing tonight!!! But who can't get excited when your a coldie and the ECM teases you with this.... All fun and games of course just for now, cause we all know how fate likes to tease us and when it looks all too good to be true, its snatched away before our very eyes! But there is much to be optimistic about this year! Let the roller-coaster that is model watching, commence!
  2. Dry sunny September followed by a mild/wet first half of October and a cool/dry second half, leading into a cool/crisp yet sunny first half of November and ending with a cold second half, with some snow in places. That would be perfect IMO.
  3. Well, here we go again! Good to see so many posters coming out of Summer hibernation. Good to see some small snow gains in Siberia. Early days, but may it keep on progressing!
  4. I probably overestimated. Looking back at the records, south-east of the country had an averaged temperature anomaly of around 25c since around 19th June.
  5. Hello all, As we all know, the UK is currently in a heatwave (July 27th). It is remarkable so far for not only its strength of the heat but the duration of the heatwave too (Since around June 19th to July 27th (Current),). The media is reporting interviews from UK meteorologists, asking why we are currently in a heatwave, with many answering that it is due to the jet stream marandering North to the UK, thus allowing hot air from a situated high-pressure system over Central Europe to divert up North towards the UK. That's all fine and dandy, but I ask "Why is the Jetstream maraundering North and why is it currently so weak?" So, what do you guys think? Why are we experiencing such a strong heatwave? As in, what weather drivers are causing it to happen in the first place? Let's get this discussion going!
  6. I have to agree. North-easterly winds at this time of year are pretty much useless (It cold is what you're after,). It will only deliver cool, cloudy, rainy days. Pretty much the week we're in now.
  7. Cool, cloudy and a little misty in Central London. Annoyingly, if we got this same setup in the middle of Jan, it would be a lot colder. Hey ho, can't really complain though. Roll on the sunshine!
  8. Hey guys. Don't usually write during the Spring/Summer on the forum, but thought I would drop in and talk a bit. After the cold end of winter (And getting fed up with therian and cool weather), hoping we'll get some lovely warm weather to brighten us all up. Next week, maybe?
  9. Hey guys! The weather must know its the 5th Anniversary of March 2013! Started snowing moderately in Central London around 8am in the morning, though nothing settled and left everything wet - was too warm. Just walked up the high street and it got even colder with the windchill very biting cold and small snow flakes falling. Looks good after 4pm overnight for our region, so keep the faith guys!
  10. I live up the road from you, Jo! I live around Mornington Crescent. It's a small world after all and all that
  11. Hello, once again guys! I ventured out to Regents Park again this morning - canal still frozen over and places had about 10inches of snow. The windchill was at l;east-15c went it picked up, maybe even -17c! Anyway, cold spell is ending in the south of England with a BANG as moderate/heavy snow falling in the capital!
  12. You are indeed correct. I remember that day - 18th December 2010 - as a polar low brought heavy snowfall across London and the South East. I was watching BBC News all the while to get weather updates and around 11.30a.m, the Amber warning turned into a Red warning for Snow. If I had some proof I would post it but I can't, for the life of me, find a thing online!
  13. Latest radar shows PPN intensifying out in the English Channel up from France, progressing up to us more NE than initially predicted. Could be looking at some strong falls for SW parts of our region (London and Home Counties). Also, latest 12z HIRLAM shows this for 5pm this evening.... When you take into consideration what the radar is currently showing, it does make one think that it could be on to something...
  14. Proper light snow falling in Central London now.
  15. Hey guys. A quieter day here in Central London thus far. Had a further 1-2cm overnight and into the morning. Snow flurry has started from some of the PPN coming up from Storm Emma. Vey cold and windchill is still brutal!
