  1. Storm Fionn - Atlantic Storm 6

    Intrestingly The Warnings have just gone to Amber for tonight's snow in Scotland https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings#?region=ta&date=2018-01-16&regionType=area
  2. #NameOurStorms: is it a good idea?

    It doesn't need to be done away with but i don't think the naming of the storms can wait until the warnings get to Amber (just my own personal opinion.)
  3. So the Irish Met office has named Storm Fionn for tonight/Tomorrow morning-could we get storm Georgina for Tomorrow night (meaning 2 storms in quick succession!).

      So theres two storms coming now?:cc_confused:

      Thought there was only one coming on Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

      You might have to do a brief signup for this. Fionn Mac Cumhaill was well taught in my Irish schooling. A formidable chap - his named storm? Wait and see...

  4. Well if the Model thread is right (and i say this with a pinch of salt) Storm Fionn might be getting named for Next Thursday.

      better than being called storm fanny i guess lol

  5. Or maybe not as we just went from 1.4C to 2.3C in the space of 15 minutes-cue snow melt!
  6. Irish Met office has named Storm Dylan for Saturday Night into New Years Eve.

      A hard rain's a-gonna fall.

      The answer my friend is blowing in the wind ...

  7. So the snow warning for tomorrow morning just got upgraded to Amber (waits for Dylan to get named).

      no point, by sunday it will be 13c, i'd rather it snow when a proper cold spell is setting in.

  8. Happy Christmas Everyone

      thanks happy christmas

  9. 85mm Rain for this month please since i forgot put this on my temperature guess
  10. To get the ball rolling for 2018 4.4C
  11. So looking like another mild and dross Christmas before the cold air arrives a couple of days too late going by tonight's week Ahead Forecast-Oh well still all to play for (past Christmas Day unfortunately)

    1. lassie23


      never snows at sodding christmas

    2. Weather26


      Now we're looking at yet another stormy Boxing Day (let's just hope it's not to the extent of 2015 or 1998.)

  12. So the Models Thread want to have a cold Christmas whilst the BBC Weather for the week ahead just now points towards yet another mild, wet and dross Christmas-Still all to play for from the look of things.

      Isobel Lang infamously went for a mild Christmas Day 2004 when GFS went for a cold one right out from 384hrs

      Although interestingly Helen Young in the following week's Week Ahead Forecast said the chances of a white Christmas had gone up-they had obviously caught with GFS by this point.

      what's the gfs hinting at this year lol

  13. And a good job we're not getting sucked into tomorrow night's alleged event-Temperatures for tomorrow here in Sheffield are up to a (Balmy) 5.C-That should get some snow melt going before too long as it's mostly rain apart from a bit of sleet tomorrow tea time. http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2638077
  14. But intrestingly the start time has gone back a few hours to 8:00am (when it was 5:00am yesterday.)
  15. But interestingly the warning time has shortend from to 6:00pm where are previous warnings had it going til midnight.
