  1. I wouldn't be surprised to see all that snow to the NW of us gradually pull down to the S/SE so may not be quite over just yet!
  2. Dont really understand the Meto amber warning currently. Heaviest snow risk seems to be to the west between Newbury and Bristol.
  3. Still bone dry up here in the far NE of our region, unfortunately. Looks to be headed our way still but sure is slow going!
  4. It performed pretty well last year during The Beast as I recall. Will be interesting to see if it does well for this event as it keeps the snow going in my location for most of the day tomorrow as well! Interestingly it matches the forecast on my Meto weather app almost exactly!!
  5. Looking at the latest HIRLAM run, it seems to have it about right for the current time: Assuming it continues to be about right, this is what should be on the ground tomorrow morning: ?
  6. Doesn't look like it's pivoting yet to me if you run the radar sequence. Just heading steadily in a NE direction. I guess you should be able to see when it starts pivoting as the precipitation in the Irish Sea will start travelling south-westwards/south which it isn't doing yet.
  7. Just checking the Arpege which looked great earlier.... ....has shunted everything north, not what we want to see! Seems to be a trend this evening in the models (moving things north) but hopefully will trend back south in the morning!!
  8. Definitely not a done deal yet by the look of it as to where will see snow and where will not!
  9. The latest Arpege run for Thursday is amazing if it comes off! Heavy snow from late afternoon all the way through to Friday morning for quite a bit of our region: Accumulated snow from now until 0700 Friday:
  10. According to the Hirlam model run at 6am, there should be quite a lot of snow falling from the showers later on over the West Country. Accumulated snow totals at 1300 tomorrow:
  11. A soggy good morning all. Hopefully this rain will clear up somewhen today. No sleet/snow here, looks from the radar that's mostly over Wales and North of Oxford. Maybe some over the Moors. Just had a quick flick through the models and there is still no agreement on the track of low pressure over the weekend and as a consequence, what temperatures/weather type we will get. Maybe the 12z runs will finally agree but for now I'll stick with the analysis i did yesterday I think!
  12. So the chopping and changing of the models continues today with varying solutions over the next few days. Still, a likelihood of some wintriness tomorrow, probably sleet and wet snow for many as shown on the NW short range model: I note though that our favourite short ranger of late, the HIRLAM doesn't show any snow at all for our region. As for the Easter weekend, with low pressure either over the SW or nearby, Friday/Saturday is likely to be wet, breezy and pretty miserable. I wouldn't be surprised to see some wintriness as temps are going to be below average.
  13. So, even now there's still uncertainty regarding this week (from Weds onwards). With the way it's trending, I'm still not going to put my hat, scarf and gloves away just yet!
  14. I think I'll still keep my hat, scarf and gloves handy. There is still a lot of uncertainty about how the weather is going to pan out even as soon as Weds/Thurs next week in my view. You've only got to look at the latest ICON run to see that:
  15. Yep, looks like for us down south, the likelihood of an Easter cold, snowy spell has all but disappeared on the main models this evening. Still time for it to change of course but that's how it looks right now. I wouldn't have minded if it was exchanged for some lovely springlike and sunny weather but that looks in short supply unfortunately
  16. EDIT no 2. - looks like the GFS also takes the LP SE eventually and brings in cold and snow for Easter Monday, although its fairly short lived.
  17. As the beginning of Easter comes into range of the UKMO, looks to me that the recurring theme (at the moment anyway!) is very much how I posted yesterday: UKMO, GFS and ICON for Thursday 29th have that LP anchored to the West/South West of us feeding up increasingly milder air. Unfortunately, I would imagine this means mild, damp and drab weather for us over Easter. Yuk! The ECM may still keep its colder evolution later but if it does, it's looking increasingly isolated! EDIT: I missed out the GEM which although looking very similar on the 29th actually moves the low
  18. I am not sure where this is going right now. The latest snow depth chart from the ECM for Good Friday suggests some fairly significant snowfall, in the North of our region and over high ground further south. Still a long way to go before the run-up to Easter and Easter itself is pinned down.
  19. Where there does seem to some agreement currently is that come Good Friday, we could well be under the influence of a low-pressure system out to the west or south west of us, with a resulting breeze coming roughly from a southerly direction:
  20. Just to illustrate the big differences currently in the models, 144hr charts from UKMO, GFS, ICON and GEM 12z runs:
  21. There are so many options on the table for Easter at the moment I'm just going to refrain from posting any more snapshots of model runs until some agreement is reached! At least I'll try to stop myself anyway...
  22. Well the pub run has excelled itself again: Rain to snow on Thurs 29th: Snow to rain on Sat 31st: Turning back to snow on Sunday 1st And then snow somewhere in our region pretty much every day through to Friday 6th including a nationwide snow event on Tues 3rd (which carries on into Weds 4th):
