    Storm Ali - Atlantic Storm 1 18/09/18

    Thinking of taking the day off Uni tomorrow because of the forecast, really don’t fancy being stranded in Glasgow Central station with 80mph gusts outside.

    Hurricane Florence

    Once that eye has sorted itself out she’s gonna fly to a cat5 surely! Florence is gonna have to be retired as a name after this is over...
  4. GFS 0z goes a bit weird with the Atlantic appearing, not sure I believe that. ECM is gorgeous, low 30s in Scotland? ☀

    2017 Tennis Thread

    Here we are with the 2017 season just a few days away! I begin this thread with the sad news that 2008 Roland Garros champion and former world number 1 Ana Ivanovic has retired from professional tennis with immediate effect. I wish her the best in the future... Tennis is technically back tomorrow, with an exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi. Most of the ATP top players are there competing, including our Andy! Good luck to him and let's get this season started!!
  6. 12z GFS has a more prolonged spell of snow, more especially for Scotland. The front takes quite a while to make any progress, giving a few hours of heavy snow if you're in the right place (me hopefully ). Temps barely rise at all from Northern England northwards, dewpoints also remain around freezing or just below for a good while as well. Some folk might get a surprise on Monday morning, because with evaporative cooling taken into consideration the freezing level might not be that far from sea level (for a while at least).

    2018 Beast from the East - Post Mortem

    Ended up with 15 INCHES! Most I've ever seen at once, and it's still lying now in abundance on the pavements especially. Constant sea effect streamers! It really was an amazing spell of weather, but the fact we ran out of bread and milk wasn't nice! I'll remember that spell for the rest of my life, the best one in terms of snowfall to date.

    Model output discussion - here comes the beast!

    Central Scotland could do well from this setup, Forth-Clyde streamers in abundance

    Model output discussion - mid January

    ANYWAY Models showing a decent snow event for a lot of us on Sunday. 18z looking as good if not better than the 12z, always more likely further North.

    Model output discussion - mid-winter

    Big snow even on Sunday according to GFS 18z, focused on Scotland, Northern England and the North Midlands. Definitely one to watch in the coming days.

    Model output discussion - mid-winter

    Looking great for my area (West-Central Scotland) for snow in the next 72-96 hours! Models are giving some great snow potential from that midweek storm (Fionn soon maybe?), along with all those bloody showers from tomorrow evening onwards! Shame that this week's potential is being dampened by the IMBYness in here, just because it's not what a lot of us want. I was bloody fuming when those sliders were dumping FEET of snow in the Midlands, now it's our turn!

    Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    This is km/hr, thank God!

    Storm Eleanor - Atlantic Storm 5

    Eleanor might be giving me some snow later! Rain right now but the local forecast indicated the risk, hope so!

    Storm Dylan - Atlantic Storm 4

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Storm Dylan - Atlantic Storm 4

    Aye it's been a while since a trampoline has been airborne here Quite looking forward to Dylan, I'm on the northern flick of the Amber through the Lowlands so here's hoping he delivers!

    Model output discussion - heading into 2018

    Not really sure why people are being a bit pessimistic after this 12z. To me, it shows various snow chances for loads of us, the closest being just 36 or so hours away. You have to remember that you don't need -10 850s for snow and cold, and that things may have to be milder for a while before the real cold arrives.

    Scotland/Alba Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/17 onwards

    Ooooo Friday is looking decent for us, 10cm is all I ask for

    Model output discussion - heading into 2018

    GFS 12z giving Scotland and Northern England a potentially significant snow event on Friday morning, a marked upgrade on 850s giving rise to this. One to watch...

    Proper snow for about an hour now, covering the grass and cars so far! White Christmas in Inverclyde!!
  20. White Christmas here in the Lowlands of Scotland! Merry Christmas! 🎄

    Model output discussion - winter proper underway

    I feel like the models are underestimating the snow on the leading edge of the front, because there's a lot of surface cold around currently. For instance, high of -4C here yesterday, low of -8C last night, and it expect it to be about the same tonight and tomorrow too before the front moves in. Maybe some sort of chance for us up North who have missed it all recently, we'll see...

    Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    Must be the only member in the NW of the UK that hasn't had a DROP of snow in this cold spell. Missed out on all those showers Thursday and Friday, and obviously the slider today!! Bloody raging doesn't cut it! First ice day of the season today however, with a max of -4°C. Currently -7°C now and a little misty.

    Quite a bit further North, thoughts?

    Model Output Discussion - cold spell to end Autumn

    Could we see another March 2013 style track shift of this slider low, this time further North back to Central Scotland??? Wishful and selfish thinking maybe, but I guess it could happen...
