  1. Although the models are often over progressive with the Atlantic, the block isn't that cold. It is forecast to be above freezing in parts of Germany and Poland all next week. Even southern Sweden is forecast to be between 1-4C.
  2. Yes, but it will certainly feel more seasonal. Although not cold enough for widespread lowland snow. wintery showers, yes.

    Surface drought is now over. We have now had more than the July average of rainfall since Thursday afternoon in Lincolnshire. 57.4mm of rain has fallen with another 10-15mm tomorrow. Greener grass already!

    Metoffice 10 day forecast highlights the uncertainty for the weather next week onwards and they seem to be going with their model more than the others. This weekend isn t going to be as hot 28 C rather than 32 C being talked about earlier in the week. It will also be cloudy, so not clear blue skies. The further SE you are the better it'll be, but it could be a cloudy and quite dull weekend and start to the week across NI, Scotland and parts of NW England.

    This coming week isn't that great dispite the large high pressure. Slow moving pattern bringing warm, mostly cloudy and showery conditions. East Wales, W Midlands and the NW will be best. Some parts of the east coast could be cool and full all week. Thundery showers across C S England on most days. Far from perfect weather. Temps 14-25 C.

    Very latest forecast says rain away from 200m + in the Peaks and Pennines and even here it won't last long. Far NE England will do best away from the coasts. Milder air further north.

    Well constant showers, but nothing to warrant an Amber Warning yet. I thought the showers were meant to merge to produce longer spells of snow this evening in our region? Maybe still time....

    Why does the Metoffice have our region under a yellow warning for today and tomorrow? Only very light snow around and nothing really forecast, so I am ot sure why they have issued one recently?

    The revised yellow and amber warnings maybe due to the initial front being further north. It may also be that as this pushes into Lincolnshire, North Nottinghamshire and S Yorkshire it may intensify as it meets the very cold air and strong SE breeze aiding convection. Not sure, but a possibility.

    That first band is already into parts of S Lincolnshire and seems to be pushing north so it could reach S of the Humber by 3pm? What do you think?

    I doubt it. The showers don't look that heavy.
  12. My friend says they have around 20cm. Alderney has over a foot with higher drifts. Ironic that they have the highest totals so far across the UK.

    No, the North Sea is still warmer than the Baltic Sea and parts of N Germany saw massive convection there. I suspect that it is due to the strength of the wind. Lighter yesterday. There will be some heavier showers today, but I don't see them surviving more than around 50 miles in land. Lincolnshire and E Yorkshire could do well today and tonight. Maybe NE Nottinghamshire to.

    In terms of snowfall, this has to be the worst easterly! On Sunday, the warnings mentioned that rural communities to the east are likely to become cut off due to heavy, drifting snowfall. There was even mentions of thunder snow showers. Those have now been watered down. I suspect, come the weekend some places will still have no snow cover.
  15. Yes, the local weather office is now expecting "well over 15cm" to fall by the morning in Guernsey and Alderney.
