  1. A really dull GFS run to look at until at least D10 but if it's any consolation at least we see some chilly uppers moving in on Christmas Day for the briefest of times Need a good set of ensembles as the previous set really did like the idea of milder weather to me
  2. Being from a location right in the centre pivot of those red/purple colours at 200m above sea level, and having had experience of these marginal setups so many times before I must say I'm not overly convinced just yet To me that chart is massively overdoing the snow 'level' and it would probably only be the high ground above 200-300m that would get anything in the way of snow accumulating (though perhaps lowland places would see more in the way of sleet/wintryness) Either way I'm pretty positive the chart is probably tricking us a bit - the turnout would be nothing like that
  3. Yes absolutely .. people not happy etc. But offering half a season for free... that really is something?

    It's probably something you've accidentally changed/clicked on - you can change it on the BBC Weather home page about 2/3rds down
  5. Newcastle United are doing this free half season ticket thing in a bid to get the ground full Are there any other teams who should do this I wonder?
  6. Challenge Cup 1st Round draw in case anyone missed it Rochdale Mayfield v London Chargers GB Police v Torfaen Tigers Edinburgh Eagles v Ashton Bears Leigh Miners Rangers v Stanningley Underbank Rangers v Lock Lane West Bank Bears v Royal Navy Featherstone Lions v West Bowling British Army v Oulton Raiders Normanton Knights v Longhorns Barrow Island v Rhondda Outlaws Pilkingtons Recs v West Hull Thornhill Trojans v Thatto Heath Crusaders York Acorn v Hammersmith Hills Hoists Siddal v Saddleworth Rangers -(comon boys) Sherwood Wolf Hunt v Wests Warriors Wigan St Patricks v Dewsbury Moor Distington v Bedford Tigers Milford v Wigan St Judes Upton v Jarrow Vikings Skirlaugh v Hunslet Club Parkside RAF v Bentley Ince Rose Bridge v East Hull.
  7. Newcastle offer season ticket holders free half-season ticket to try to fill St James' Park - BBC Sport WWW.BBC.CO.UK Newcastle are offering season ticket holders a free additional half-season ticket to gift to fellow supporters to help fill St James' Park. In this day and age that's quite something
  8. Yes well not look out the window to see whether there's precipitation falling out the sky - I think a good portion of the country will see that - but more to look out to see whether its rain, sleet or snow..! Actually seen some people post charts recently that highlight the snow 'level' - these are interesting to see but not sure if they are accurate?
  9. He's come out saying he's "not worried about relegation" which in my opinion is potentially a pathetic comment to make, if I were a West Ham fan I'd be pretty peeved off.. what planet's he on!
  10. Yes plenty of snowfall filled charts for some this weekend but as ever these are just raw model charts from the GFS they are never going to come off like for like - hence why the best 'tool' to use this weekend in terms of working out whether it's going to snow or not is probably to just look out of the window.. Nontheless; Here's Wendesday at 15:00 but this really does look high/highest ground stuff Saturday looks a little more interesting for some; 06:00 and still lingering showers throughout the day for some in the N/W I suspect all these would just be wintry showers with accumulations only for high ground, though lower levels could still see some snow falling Looking ahead and the GFS is just sodden from D8 onwards to the end of the run. But still think a change could take place towards the back end of the month - just doesn't look too likely
  11. As we're perhaps firming up on some HP coming more into play by the end of the second week - it's not a surprise that there's going to be a couple of real, deep freezer GEFS members as some of these will host the HP in a favorable position for colder weather. Main bet at the moment for that time frame would be something close to what the op is showing - HP to rise close to/over the country which could still mean some chilly ground temperatures indeed.
  12. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be one of those horrible wet days when there's bucket load of puddles everywhere. People getting soaked. Having to smoke my ciggies half-in-half-out the front door, much to my other half's annoyance.
  13. I'll refrain from asking how often you change them then. In truth I don't think they've actually changed all that much in the last few days or so - models flipping and flopping to me would suit the definition of showing a freezing cold NE'ly one day and then a horrid W'ly the next run.. I don't think we're really seeing that This is a pretty flat looking chart from the ECM and it just feels as though its plausible to me. But if that were to come off - the end result of all that HP a week or so down the line could be interesting?
