  1. Well what a great day to be a weather enthusiast today Some brilliant sky scapes:
  2. True Yes certainly the dry theme looks to continue except for these blips like the showers today and perhaps a little rain Sun/Mon but after that looks to be dry again. GFS seems to agree. Even if it doesnt get very warm it still feels nice and pleasant in the mid-teens now if its sunny so I too am hopefull for some good weather in May
  3. ECM doesnt look as good as last nights though, the 850s I posted yesterday were higher than its showing tonight. The plume looks to be being deflected NW away from the UK on this run: GFS also showing that next weeks warm up maybe temporary before a return to average. Just like this weeks few days of colder weather, next week may see similar the other way. A clear arc in the ensembles showing it may not last: Typicaly the worst weather over the next few weeks looks like being the bank holiday with a large spike in the ppn graph!!!
  4. WOW! Mega blizzard just swept through here What a treat for late April. Thought id seen my last snow until next winter!
  5. Yes SS, a big turnaround looks to be coming. Youve got to love our little island havent you, from blue to red in just over a week!
  6. haha, well I might see a flake or two up here if im lucky! Yes its uncanny how its matching the dates to last year exactly. Lets wait and see what happens Very strong GFS 12z ensembles for South Yorkshire tonight, 850s around -6 and daytime temps around 7c for a few days Doesnt look to last too long and of course at this time of year a quick rebound in temps looks likely to more average values after the chilly spell.
  7. Yes, i was posting GFS charts for fun the other day but perhaps, just for once, we will get a straight northerly!! Shame its 3 months too late of course. Still, ECM T144 tonight is great to look at:
  8. Well good agreement between ECM and UKMO at T144 which as we know is a very strong combo to have. GFS showing something similar to this about a day later so strong indications still that April may end quite cool: Having a look at the GFS ensembles from the 12z shows pressure dropping as we head towards the last week of the month with the mean coming down to around 1010mb. Lowest its been for a long time, so although it may not be nice, we do have to admit that southern areas especialy need the rain! You can see the precipitation graph responding to the drop in pressure accordingly around the 25th, this for London:
  9. Yes its looking far from a settled and warm outlook! Things look like going downhill as we go towards the end of April and into the last month of meteorological Spring. GFS 12z giving an ice day for northern Pennines and Scotland on the 26th April and heavy snow working south through the evening and overnight even into southern England!!!! All just for fun of course
  10. Do we know where he is going to? I liked John, ill be sure to watch his last forecast tonight then! Used to be able to spot Rob McElwee on Al Jazeera, but not sure if hes still there?
  11. Well what a lovely Spring day today! Its been a stunner! And just been treated to a fantastic fiery red sunset!!
  12. Yes Frosty, tomorrow looks like a stunner, warm sunshine and will feel very pleasant indeed
  13. Whilst its quiet and comic relief night.... did anyone else notice that the T240 ECM 850s chart tonight looks just like @knocker squirrel Sidney!!
  14. dont know what to make of tonight, TV have played it down but other forecasts still show snow. Conditions looks favourable at the moment...maybe the last restless, curtain twitching night of the season haha!
  15. yeah hopefully! Last chance saloon to see a snowflake this season maybe. Keeley Donovan was on radio Sheffield at tea time and she said maybe a cm or 2 around the peak district tonight and even the risk of something more substantial for us all Tuesday night into Weds! Heres hoping
