  1. It’s just you ! The next 3/4 weeks is what most on net weather look forward to.
  2. Keep the faith folks. Its still on the cards !
  3. Temp forecasts for Oslo, Stockholm, Moscow & Copenhagen all heading colder towards end of next week, suggesting a pressure rises in that area.
  4. For those that follow joe bastardi on twitter, he is pretty bullish about a v cold feb somewhere in the N hemisphere. He’s talking about MJO groing into 8,1,2,3 during February. Also M Ventrice showing GEFS going strongly negative NAO into Feb, although ECM not supporting this.
  5. But isn’t the GFS 18 showing snow for Sunday from N Wales to the east Anglia ? Is this happens it would be the 3rd or 4th snow event this winter, which ain’t bad.
  6. With a drop in zonal winds forecast and ridging into Greenland being discussed by Cohen & Ventrice this looks like the form horse to me.
  7. https://mobile.twitter.com/DrAHButler/status/950120680636538880/photo/1 Looks like those zonal winds will be dropping considerably later this month. Ties is with GP, Tamara & Catacols ideas.
  8. That is the norm for a La Nina winter (you could say the cold spell in first week of Dec reflected that) but its not as straightforward as this, and there are now expectations of colder spells Jan & Feb.
  9. Funny that, as there's a lot of chatter about a Greenland high coming. Source: J Cohen & M Ventrice on Twitter. Pretty reliable sources.
  10. Temperature at 1c now and getting icy out there. Expecting - 3 - 4 tonight. Still lots of snow around and cleeve hill hasn't lost any of its snow today. Plenty of fun to be had up there ! 2 snow events in 2 weeks. With a La Niña year, a front loaded winter is the form horse so no complaints from me.
  11. Cheltenham usually does well in snowy situations. We had about 5cm in bishops cleeve but cleeve Hill 7-8cm. It’s turned v slushy in the village but with a freeze due tonight and a sunny start tomorrow cleeve hill will be wonderful.
  12. Healthy looking Alaska ridge heading to the pole. Whats the chances for that moving towards Greenland ? The vortex splits nicely on this image to say it could happen.
  13. First the Ramp - Snowy in Cheltenham where two main A roads were closed as too dangerous. The A 40 Cheltenham - Oxford road pretty much a no go zone. Lots of lovely snow. Rant - No sign of any gritters or ploughs clearing the A40. These are main roads so love to know what Local Authorities have to say. Moan - Unable to drive to Oxford. Took the wife 12 hours to get from Gatwick to Cheltenham. Combination of snowy M40 and abandoned cars, train delays from Oxford to Reading, and delays & crowded trains from Reading to Cheltenham.
