  1. It would be interesting to repeat this exercise next Wednesday, when we compare these charts with the T0 charts.
  2. GFS spawns a Super Typhoon in the northern Atlantic. Er, no! (Edit - I've deleted phil nw's text to shorten my post. For the record, I'm laughing at the GFS' output - not phil nw's excellent post. Apologies if my post reads wrong & out of context...)
  3. Our snowman from earlier - the posh Surrey variety with strawberries for eyes! 😂
  4. Last one from me. As Blue says, altitude is key. Anyone thinking of travelling in the search of snow would do well to go somewhere well above sea level - Portadown Hill,Butsor Hill got to be a good shout. Living in Bournemouth, we're truly snow starved. I'll never forget as a small kid when my Dad drove me up to Shaftesbury one winter. (1981?). Bournemouth had nothing, there was a dusting 10 miles inland and by the time we'd got to the hills of Shaftesbury, there were snow drifts several foot deep by the sides of the road. I was wonderstruck and that has never left me!
  5. Yes, top of a hill! Edit: Snowing very heavily - huge flakes coming down hard. Easily 2-3 inches has settled.
  6. I've struck lucky! Travelled to Haslemere yesterday evening and have woken up to a whiteout!
  7. I was working then enf of 2012 - early 2013. I remember there was a lot of snow in Swindon then that settled.
  8. Personally interested in any snow reports linked to model verification.
  9. I don't believe that this is correct. As I understand it, the op is run at a high resolution and the control at a lower resolution. The 'GEFS members' are run with slightly adjusted starting data (and also at a lower resolution).

    Even as it's snowing outside, we'll all be glued to this forum discussing when the breakdown is coming!

    I wouldn't worry about output from UKMO and ECM - they'll surely fall into line with this morning's stellar output from the GFS! (Tongue firmly in cheek).

    What followed? If memory serves me right we got a proper big dump of snow that winter. (Bournemouth).

    And the year was?

    Boo hoo, you sound of reason you!
  15. Wow. Just driven through very heavy rain shower by Poole Harbour. Why wow? Rain falling from high level Ac Cas. Thought the radar was showing a large blobof ana prop, and then the rain came down, seemingly out of nowhere!
