  1. My thoughts exactly....charts seem to be all over the place with no 'real' sign of any decent low 850's heading our way...but with this in mind, what instances have we had where by the charts have suddenly flipped and unexpected proper cold has landed on our shores ??...does this actually happen...can anyone remember such a situation ??
  2. Some nice charts popping up for a weeks + time... makes good viewing...but i'm keeping my feet firmly on the ground up here in God's own county and refuse to join the band wagon that as we all know has a tendency to grind to an abrupt downgraded induced halt ! ?....on the flip side...makes for some excellent posts and model watching...enjoy !!??
  3. Well all the expectations/potential failed to deliver the goods this year...all the eye candy was 10+ days out every time ...but it made 'interesting' viewing and I've enjoyed all the posts and predictions this winter despite it being one of the most snowless ones in these parts that I can remember for a long time!.. (two very brief dustings) 2018/19..the winter that never was!..so it's time to get off the rollercoaster and save up for a ticket for next winters ride!.. take care folks..here's to a long hot summer eh??????
  4. Well it appears that the snow shield has been turned up to full power here in West Yorkshire,only a couple of short lived dustings (admittedly prob a bit more if you're at altitude)since the beginning of winter and it's only this past week that we've seen a decent frost !!?...pretty disappointing winter really..let's see if March can deliver something before thoughts turn to summer!!..for now I'll just have to make do with watching the snow 'darn saarf' on the news!?
  5. ..first venture into the regionals after a few months riding the disappointing model output forum 'hunt for something remotely cold' rollercoaster !?...another big build up and an even bigger let down ?..all gone waaaaay way south..so far south that those snow clouds are gonna need a passport!..a pants 'winter' so far here in Gods own county...but there's always February ..right???..anyway..enough moaning..what will be will be ..hats off to all those that post their forecasts on here ...makes for great reading ...here's hoping for at least one decent fall of the white stuff before our thought
  6. I hope so,although from this mornings posts with folk stating that it's edging south on each run,us snow starved Yorkshire peeps look like missing out all week!..???
  7. I think I'll put the unused sledge away and dust off the BBQ with those 850's and 2m temps!..just about sums this winter (or total lack of) up!!???
  8. Half decent set of charts popping up today...but beyond the reliable for me...i think for everyone's sanity we shouldn't post past T96 - 120! ?.... the rollercoaster continues to roll but without delivering the goods.... but hats off to all those that try and predict the future that mother nature has for us...makes for excellent reading peeps!!...anyway onto the 12Z??...i'll just keep enjoying the first decent frost of the season that arrived last night...still below freezing here in the shade !
  9. Pretty grim over on the model output thread....as it has been for a couple of months ... plenty of hype but nothing tangible to back it up..always 7 to 10 days away...don't get me wrong..I love the cold weather ..and love a decent cold chart..but only when it's in the reliable time frame ...not FI as most have been lately..a decent cold spell in Jan and/or Feb seems to be a thing of the past!..anyway..time to sack the chart viewing off for a few days for the sake of my sanity ..hopefully I'll return to good news!!..?
  10. I'd take that any day of the week and gladly wait for it...as always...FI land ...but having flicked through the charts up till then (admittedly only GFS) with my extremely amateurish eyes...this is the only thing that really resembled 'winter'.....what i'd give for a snowy Christmas !!....hopefully exciting times ahead for this winter...hats off to all you knowledgeable posters on here..makes great reading!!
  11. Excellent charts this morning...!!...lets see what the roller coaster has to offer over the next few days!!...I'd take a re-run of 2010 any day !?
  12. Poor show here in West Yorkshire ? Despite all the hype of yesterday ..decent wind blowing mind you but that is all..can't see anything on the radar worth getting hopes up about..?
  13. I won't keep my hopes up though for a covering being present when I wake ftom my night shift induced coma???..my radar app shows precipitation first thing today then virtually nothing for the next two days ????
  14. Well that's my night shift finished time for sleep..only a very light dusting of snow here in Gods own county of West Yorkshire ..and IMBY at Wakefield virtually zero snow with a current temp of 0.3 deg..?..to add insult to injury the BBC forecast has changed dramatically for the next two days showing virtually no snow bar the odd light shower!!..damn you BBC weather App!!..sort of goes massively against what folk on here were expecting ...?
  15. I kid you not..!!..just a cold (currently 1 deg C) wet miserable night ?
