  1. Looks like our old friend Liverpool Airport weather station has been on the pints today Seems to be consistently six to seven degrees warmer than Hawarden,Crosby and Rostherne/Manchester Airport
  2. Yeah definitely wrong the warmest around here is Hawarden at 28c then some other stations like Crosby and Rostherne are showing 26/27c . So I put that at about six degrees off don't see anything wrong there
  3. It starts to lift out by Friday on the UKMO a little slower on the GFS but looks likely high pressure will build in again over the weekend after. To be honest if we have a couple of days of pain to help get a better pattern in place then I'm not complaining.
  4. ECM slap bang in the middle between the GFS and UKMO/GEM. Stronger ridge at Day 5 akin to the GFS means that the Atlantic doesn't come flying through. Not as good as the GFS but we'd have to see where we'd go from there.
  5. Few rumbles here from a heavy shower passing over but not much to see. Some pretty heavy hail though across town https://twitter.com/wrexham/status/1392515732961992706?s=19
  6. Meh no thanks give me the less amplified solution from the Midnight run looks more likely to give the UK finer weather especially after all the wind and rain this week.
  7. Yeah the showers really struggled to get over here and when they did then went West over the North Wales coast instead. Think we did better last BFTE in the south of the region because of the trough going through and the temps being 1 or 2 degrees cooler overall made a big differences to melting. Wonder whether the better direction is ESE for Wales and Cheshire instead as showers don't have to cross the Pennines. The obvious problem with that wind direction is the notorious rain shadow over Manchester.
  8. UKMO and ECM looking pretty similar at Day 5. Slight differences regarding the lows the ECM has it further West but keeps the two lows phased where as the UKMO separates them. Vis over Scandi the heights are slightly better on the UKMO but we are nit picking at this point.
  9. This is the run he's talking about from the midnight run Very mild however I would prefer to wait till Mid-March to make the most of the warming sun. As a contrast to keep everyone happy here is some something of a colder premise with the ingredients for a greenland high I essentially picked a decent one out the bag. Highly doubt this is what it will look like come the 21st But we shall see later whether these are the types of scenarios we should be looking for later on because the attempt at a Scandi High failed or whether maybe this would achievable by some form of retrogression from a Scandi Block we shall have to see with the MJO into phase 7 this could be possible and these are the permutations to look for should early attempts for scandi blocking fail. Look for a UK high to retrogress north.
  10. Hopefully I can catch part of that streamer as it gradually sinks south. The thing with the 2018 beast was that we got a nice trough moving through that gave a decent area a good 5cm or so. This time we don't have any which is a bit disappointing so we have to rely on getting lucky with showers and streamers. That's why it's a let down for a lot of us.
  11. Yeah I'm pi**ed off with that they're all going to the North of me
  12. No sugar coating either of them but the GFS is still better and holds the Atlantic at bay at least it looks like on the UKMO it would blast through. By Day 8 there is still some hope there trying to create a Scandi Ridge whilst looking towards Greenland too provided some energy from the bowling ball is cut off. At this point looking for hope is not great considering some of the spectacular charts that were popping up a mere 36 hours ago. Shows how much can change within a short time period.
  13. Finally got a proper shower here still not particularly heavy though but got a dusting now.
  14. GEFS looking pretty decent well over half of them showing Scandi Highs of some descriptions however the main takeaway is about 1 or 2 out of 30 support the horrow show of the GEM which is reassuring.
