  1. Hi there John, I live in a very(very) similar part of the world to you and I have lived many years of unfulfilled hysteria. I think your balanced unbiased analysis is excellent and your one of the few who post on the MOD thread that I value. The slight gripe I have is with the forecast media - The professionals that you refer to. As you know we have had an amber warning for some time in our area and yet its currently above freezing, no lying snow and the occasional shower. Tomorrow (less than 24 hrs out)the met office app shows heavy snow from 3am until around lunchtime. This is not hopecasti
  2. I keep hearing about the South’s lack of snow but I’m based in S Yorks and we haven’t had snow since 2010. The reality is that we are all snow starved and therefore ramp at the possibility of snow even so called experts on the model thread. The models really struggle with our island and can simply pick a broad trend with v little detailed accuracy even at v short time periods hence we have an amber warning but we don’t even have a covering of snow. After another failed bout of snowmaggedon predictions I think I’m going to stick to looking out of the window

  5. Hi all, something of a long standing lurker who loves the learning and the knowledge demonstrated on this site but I must confess to being a little confused at the moment. The GFS is consistently showing remarkable runs yet the ECM 0z has backed away slightly with the hp a little further south. However, the GFS 6z is stellar once again. Here's the rub; I get the impression from recent posts that most people are starting to feel v confident in a likely cold/ v cold spell yet my understanding is that the ECM is generally more accurate and the GFS 6z is one of the more low resolution outputs
