  1. I'm not quite sure if EURO4 gives tomorrow's possible snow event justice. It looks underwhelming for most and feel like we should see more snow on the back-edge of the front. Thickness look in and around the 528 dam mark. Dew-points marginal at around 0 or 1'c. 850hpa temperatures look between -5 and -6'c; -7'c across parts of East Midlands. 2m Temps look around 2'c I just cannot see how these parameters represent no snow potential along the back-edge of the front, I mean EURO4 shows no snow potential whatsoever for North England southwards.
  2. ICON 6z is coming out at the moment and so far trough dropping more of a SSE direction compared to a ESE direction.
  3. As many have said already it is a knife-edge scenario! The low coming out of the US is EXTREMELY hard to model, and the likeliness of any models nailing its track and intensity down at this time is still unlikely. Until we know how it acts in the next 48 hours is crucial to what we see. If the low takes an unexpected track we could still see large changes at such a small range. I hardly see people comment about the GFS P when it does verify better than the standard GFS. Don’t forget GFS P also follows the ICON & ECM solution.
  4. GFS P 12z by T222 showing a SIGNIFICANT snow event for the majority North England southwards as we see the low undercut.
  5. GFS P 12z, following a similar route to its 6z run just a slightly slower evolution, very good nevertheless! By T138, the Azores and Arctic highs have linked and we looked primed for a very cold E/NE'ly.
  6. What even is happening to the GFS 12z by T300, I've not seen anything like this ever. Oh my the easterlies!
  7. Conversely, the pattern is extremely volatile within the 4/5 day time frame and will lead to differences thereafter and it is model discussion so why not comment pre 96? No malice intended I just don't see a problem! Safe to say I think GFS 6z will get there, just appears to be a slower evolution. Less amplified as others have noted too! Also the GFS is painting an extremely snowy 24 hours from T90 onwards.
  8. GFS P 18z, by T102 it is clear that much more energy is being sent southwards in comparison to 12z.
  9. Final post from me, I'm having way too much fun over a GFS chart. Am I right in thinking the down-welling of easterly winds in the troposphere has fully occurred by this point
  10. According to the GFS 18z, much of the UK spends between T162 to T384 under -8 uppers! That corresponds to 8/9 days in a row with temperatures not getting above freezing... almost!
  11. What trigger low are you on about? The one moving off into Eastern Europe? ALERT: -14 uppers along the East Coast of UK!
  12. Anyone for -16'c uppers?; that cold pool over Scandinavia tho...
  13. Look at the Arctic High spreading towards Greenland, I'm confident that we'll see an easterly here. Hope we can see the heights out in the Atlantic link up.
  14. Nothing too much to note on GFS 18z at the moment by T66... The low coming off the US East Coast is a tad further west along with the rest of the pattern to the west of the UK. Fingers crossed for an improvement going forward now.
  15. Agreed with Shaky, very poor 18z run and is much worse with a much flatter pattern. 12z chart first, 18z second. Back-edge snow still possible on the front moving SE but for the most part cold rain.
