  1. Usual yanks going over the top, seems there not having a historic event, just a normal snowstorm. Over the top drama queens. Mean while over this side of the pond were arguing over upper air temps and downgrades. Someone send me back to the desert lol

      This was a dissapointing event, the snowstorms of 2010-1 were worse in the North-East corridor, although some serious cold in NYC forecasted for this week.

  2. Been so busy last few days I haven't had much time to check the mods, what I can see is lots of potential and many days of cold biting winds with dine experiencing some good snowfall and the rest some decent hard frosts. Positives are this winter has blitzed last winters performance and even though not one single snow flake has fallen here I'm happy that it's been abit more seasonal. I'm keeping my expectations low with this current spell forecast due to being abit disappointed with the last cold spell. Hopefully I'm surprised. People seriously need to just relax in regards to upper temps, snow falling areas and how long thus lasts because otherwise your drive yourself mad. Hope everyone is well.
  3. on the ranges at Colchester all week this week!! Gonna be a cold one by the looks of things.

  7. The Phraise from the film Saw, pretty much sums up our winter and the prospects of any sustained cold...........GAME OVER
  8. Any idea when this pathetic cold spell is starting? Been in a t-shirt all day in beautiful winter sun. Need winter to do one, summer is calling me.

  9. Nice report Gibby, my thoughts exactly regarding enjoying it while it's here, we only have frost but I'm happy. I think whats evident is that the models are firming up on bring cool/mild weather back to our shores by midweek, but with all if feb to play for and a nice cold pool to our right hopefully we can just have one good easterly before winter ends.
  10. Beautiful walk with the wife, baby and dogs this morning, stunning frost. Happy with that

  11. I think the models are having a mare with his to deal with this cold situation, think we're gonna have to wait another 48 hours before the details get ironed out. Shame about the downgrades but still plenty to play for. New day tomorrow and a new set of runs.
  12. Jet stream absolutly destroys any chance of a good cold spell on the gfs18z

  13. Nice shift east on the 12z gfs, this spell is turning into a snap and not before long it will be down to a pop.
  14. 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.
  15. I think some people in the mod thread are in denial, it's quite easy to see that the models have picked up a new trend and that is for this cold spell to turn into a damp cool spell then back to mild. Never believed it to come good anyway. Bring on spring and summer I say. Would of been nice for abit of snow though.
  16. 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

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

  19. What time does the gfs 6z start rolling out please anyone?
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Has anyone asked if it will snow yet 😛

  23. 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.
  24. Wonder. If any snow will make it past the sussex snow shield next week :)

  25. Only snow for Midlands north, us in the south would continue with the theme of cold rain
