  1. It's apparent that the models underplayed the power of the jet and as we get closer in time to this cold snap the models will firm up on finer details, one of which is the jet stream which powers our weather. We have I say at best a 5-7 day cold/cool spell with night frosts but any precipitation will be rain away from high ground and the north. We could still get an upgrade but the high pressure just gets flattened to quickly. Until we have some decent blocking to our north then low pressure will just crush any chance of deep cold.
  2. Was gonna comment in the mof thread but choose not to due to the fact it's filled with unhappiness and depression. It's only the weather, there are far more things to worry about than what falls out the sky lmao

  3. At last something for us southerners if this verifys......... Please please please
  4. Chuffed, been offered an advisory role with counter terror police in London, plenty of time at home with the little one.

  5. What time does the gfs 6z start rolling out please anyone?
  6. Horrible downgrades this morning for Midlands south, hopefully the models don't water all this down to wet icy dross. It just shows that were far from certain to have a good cold spell, last nights easterly on the ECM has all but disapeared and the 850 uppers have retreated back east. Lots of wintry weather for the North again but for us southerners, if it plays out this way then I for one will not be excited about rain interspersed with frosts and ice. Basically it will be like living in the Falklands which for who that have never been its the most depressing place on the planet, cold, wet and windy. Fingers crossed for a few upgrades again but I'm not holding my breath.
  7. We COULD be on the cusp of something amazing here, models are still trying to firm up on what's coming and there's still scope for upgrades, especially as the weather fronts get closer. A few GEFS have a part of the vortex dropping into scandi only for the Atlantic to attack which doesn't go to plan and the system could easily slip throught France bringing us another reload of easterlys, and with the pv being in scandi the temps would be crazy cold if we developed another easterly. Obviously I'm only speculating on what might happen but this really could develop into a classic...........or it could go T.I.T.S up, we all get let down and go back into the zonal train lol. Fingers crossed we all get what we deserve
  8. Has anyone asked if it will snow yet 😛

  9. Crossing my fingers that these sliders push west in further runs, sadly us below London are still at a minimum for snow but things could change nearer the time. Loving the models this evening.
  10. Wonder. If any snow will make it past the sussex snow shield next week :)

  11. Only snow for Midlands north, us in the south would continue with the theme of cold rain
  12. As stated by others on here, I wouldn't worry about where snow will fall, let's get this cold in and entrenched then let the fun begin. I'd be surprised if all of us didn't see at least some falling snow if the models come true. But I'm still very cautious, gfs 12z was very quick to kill the cold and the others could easily follow in the coming days. Just enjoy what there churning out ATM then wait and see
  13. So the big question is..... Has the gfs 12z picked up a new trend or is it going in the bin to await more runs?
  14. Completely agree, maybe the old gfs wants to go out on a sour note and let us down just one last time
  15. Waiting for the downgrades

      I don't often, only if people talk of snow or storms.

      Didn't have to wait long, viewed the charts first time this year an hour ago and looked exciting, then 12z GFS rubbish, jinxed it again aha best stay away.

      Me too, just a few days ago it was supposed to get mild and wet early next week, now not looking so likely, damn cold weather

  16. If these current outputs verify then what are the chances on snow on the south Coast, desperate for my 2 year old to see some of the White stuff, any info would be much appreciated.
  17. Not buying it one bit from the gfs, we have had a few Stella charts during this winter already only for them to disappear. Until all the models sing from the same sheet, it's in a realiable time scale and the met are on board then it's all worthless. But the weather is far from boring so hopefully the gfs is gonna be the leader tonight and bring the other models round to the idea.
  18. Already loving the fact it's getting lighter in the mornings earlier and the evenings get darker later. Also trees seem to be budding very early this year. Can't wait till the hot summer days are back.

  19. Not overly excited about current outputs. Good for Scotland and Northern Ireland especially at height but for the rest of us it looks cold, wet and windy. If we want a countrywide cold spell then we really need a block to form, from what I've seen that's not gonna happen. Maybe our luck will change end of jan going into February. Plus with the weather so choppy and windy I have zero chance of getting out to sea for some fishing so all in all rather frustrating. Would much rather have a nice artic high giving us beautiful sunny crisp days with light winds and freezing nights with harsh frost.
  20. I know a few lads in the Romanian army and they have gone home on leave, they have sent me some amazing winter photos from there home country, seems there having a cold one there :(

  22. Nice little break away working with the yanks. What have I come back to weatger wise............mild, zonal and no sign of cold. Lucky I'm going to be on exercise in Norway next week then.

      Don't know been in Iraq the last week. We're doing mountain training next week so I think it will be freezing.

      It's cold tonight

  23. Position of the block ATM is of no significance, especially at that range. The fact is the block is showing, the position will change over time so don't get hung up on location ATM
  24. Joys of the job, see you all in 2 weeks hopefully the models will of improved by the time I return. If I can get internet in Baghdad then I might have a look if I get a spare 5 seconds. Happy new year.

  25. Really can't be dealing with any strong winds this winter, for anyone that lives in the real world and doesn't live with mummy and daddy will realise the cost of fence panels and the risk to lives.

      Indeed! All kinds of weather brings risk. So instead of moaning about it and criticising people who enjoy it, why not embrace it? After all, there's nothing you can do to change it.

      Unfortunately we will always have dangerous/extreme weather! No matter how careful we are, there will always be fatalities !:-(
