    A good trend tonight, splendid. On the downside the wife has arrived home with 3 friends, seems they have finished off half a dozen bottles of plonk. Dont think I will tell them I’m on  my weather geek site

    No, possibly not a good idea, my partner is drinking with her sister, she asked me why I’m being anti social and looking at the computer again, I said I’m just looking at models, she slapped me so don’t think that went down very well.

    The Control run has the low further south at 156.  Just saying!


    That looks like a duck looking over it’s shoulder, when the models show animal patterns snow usually follows, perhaps less scientific than some methods, but quite possibly equally as effective.

    Good or bad Marcus ? Hopefully better than the Arsenal result ?

    Says we have had positive  AO and will switch to negative AO which could mean we will see much colder weather towards the end of the season.

    18z showing west is best, NW, Wales, west country doing particularly well, look at all that snow just clipping the south coast, seen that so many times before, come on, further north please!? 

    Drives me mad this further north, further south, further north business!?

    During mid December, I attended an emergency planning meeting at my work and the contingency planners were pretty confident of a cold January and February. So much so, the local authority ordered 25% more rock salt. However, at the same meeting today, they were much less bullish than before Christmas. The *risk* is there on the longer term models, but they are now less confident of a very cold February and said it may just turn out to be pretty standard winter weather. 

    Yea I know the feeling, I ordered about 25% more gin in preparation, but it’s ok, unlike the rock salt, the gin may be quite useful to drown the sorrows.

    Sounds good in theory Paul but this change isn't great imo, many of the posters I'm interested in reading what they have to say regarding the models are posting in here and not the other thread, or they cross post if I'm really lucky but usually I'm left trawling through all the banter searching for the model output! I don't really fancy adding loads of users to my ignore list just to make this thread a lot quicker & easier to navigate but I can see myself ending up going down that route lol.

    You can’t have your cake and eat it, remove all the banter and one liners and you get the serious forum, which is too quiet for your liking. So you either take a quiet, more serious thread or come to the busier one and put up with it. Your choice.

    I wouldn't rule out a double SSW season (very rare) - i know the QBO has returned W'ly, but the vortex is not going to strengthen to the usual December / Nov levels, its likely to be weak even for a late season vortex, with AAM increasing, an active MJO and further Mountain torque events likely...........................    Freezing cold spring anyone?

    No thank you, some heavy snow soon, and then the lovely warmth of the spring as the days get longer.

      I must say I totally agree with you easton lunar boy well said 

    Yes  it’s being delayed - but that’s not to say that it won’t end up being an epic winter, still time on our side, and all the signals give hope, it’s obviously not definite, but we have a chance, that’s enough and more than we usually get. 

    Consolation, every day that passes is closer to spring, and spring is great.

    LFC fan here too, if we’d lost/drawn it would have been a dark day coupled with the failed easterly. Luckily the win lifted my spirits! 

    Play Saturday football too and we lost 4-3 only second loss of season to crap team, game finished about 3:45 and Liverpool where losing 1-0 at that time and of course the failed easterly as you say, not in good mood at all. Luckily we turned it around,  very tense situation, cmon Huddersfield.

    What game you talking about?

    Because I was on a downer after yesterdays models then my team won so that lifted me up! positive signs this morning, hope it continues.

    Arsenal v Chelsea I think, I’m an LFC fan, was nervy yesterday, need Huddersfield to do us a favour today, unlikely but you never know. Who do you support? Got the snooker final to look forward to today and of course more model output lol


    sorry for off topic

    Me too Boys so I'm. Glad we. Have somewhere to hang out... Can I join in

    Anyway it’s all joyful and cheerful on here at the moment, we are on the upwards run of the rollercoaster ride, let’s see what happens when the next downwards slope appears. ?

    I Get that, but only 3pages on model thread and over 20here.I Just think it means if cold weather is showing is it for  the forecasting model thread, or this one. I understand why it was done just think it splits the enjoyment! 

    Well depends doesn’t it, is your comement on the weather / models detailed and technical or just a passing comment?

    I much prefer this style of thread as as a newcomer I found that I wasn’t able to contribute at all and it felt unwelcoming. This is much better in my opinion.

    Yes same mate, I’m not really a newbie, but have no real idea about the technical aspects of meteorology. So felt unable to contribute also, not that I have much of interest to add, but still, this is a good idea.

    Looking forward in the near future to hopefully getting into the stage where we all congregate in our regionals and get down to some radar watching. Here are a few saved from Feb / March 18 to whet the appetite, all snow circulating in the low to the channel. Epic times.

    Could be a memorable spell coming up soon also, everything crossed.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Feb 2019 to Saturday 16 Feb 2019:

    The cold weather will continue as we head through the first half of February. There is a greater risk of seeing snow at lower levels as well as on the hills. Some drier and brighter periods are possible in the northwest, but in the south there is a chance of weather fronts approaching which bring a risk of rain, sleet and perhaps significant snow at times.
