  1. I agree,nothing remotely zonal but same results...wet and windy,mild with colder interludes.No freeze up,no persistent or recurring cold cycles.Resetting to normal notwithstanding the SSW.I don’t like it either.
  2. Why has the ‘members online’ facility disappeared?
  3. Yes you did Tim.9th to 11th January was the target dates.It was dropped but reappeared.Let’s see how things progress.
  4. Not liking this at all.Ok,southern England still taking some thing from the east but further north,that’s a southerly source of air with heights moving east.
  5. Very tasty charts but I’m curious,how are they produced from so far back? Are they speculation based only?
  6. This current temperature image would not be out of place in June...
  7. So in other words,what would qualify as ‘IMBY’ and ‘off topic’ comments are ok if there is a record about to fall? Trust me on this,it’s all about London and the south east.
  8. All the talk on the model thread is all about the south east of England’s heatwave and both Sky and BBC are hyping it up large.I’m sick of it and if conditions were reversed (Scotland only heatwave) the priority would still be the English weather,on the model thread and the media outlets.Some say that in a winter set up (where Scotland always scores better than English locations regarding snow fall,lying snow and temperature) then the model thread attention would swing to Scotland...I beg to differ as has happened in the past,” Can we please keep local weather or IMBY isms in the regional thre
  9. Hi Frosty, a week ago this forum was buzzing about the potential for a third beast based on the model output then.I'm disillusioned by the current outcome versus prognosis of a week ago.I'm sure the warmer outcome will be the reality this week.
  10. I'm sure the media,especially the BBC don't realise that the actual current weather is occurring well in front of the forecasts.Helen Willits mentioned just now (16:30) that the rain will turn to snow on the mountains of Scotland and temperatures tomorrow in Scotland will only reach +4c.Helen,there is sleet falling near Galashiels (180m) right now,with a temperature of +4c.Even the iPhone app is showing this.But of course,Scotland is irrelevant!
  11. Anyone else share my view that since the SSW was forecast,the model thread has become the Fantasy Island thread? I understand the anticipation and excitement of the SSW and the 'potential' ramifications thereafter but almost all output being shown and discussed is all in F1.I hope we do get the protracted cold easterly and dreams sometimes come true but for now they are dreams even at a point of cross model agreement on day 10.
  12. I think they mean milder air winning out over their London.That aside,fantastic seeing so much overall cold in the charts,especially in the new deliverer,the Northwesterly.
  13. And while Carol Kirkwood manages to take 2 out of 3 minutes to describe how the temperature dropped from 10c to 8c in London,the snow is back in Leadhills.
