  1. Kindness in the cold

    That's a worry for me as well - the number of homeless people in Norwich seems to have increased sunstantially over this past few years. As a wheelchair user, I may find it awkward getting out of the house much if we do get substantial snowfalls, my parents, though older, should be able to get round tthe village OK.
  2. Triple point must have gone across above my area at 11.30!
  3. Met Office loses BBC contract

    I'm glad you posted this - I was thinking the same thing!
  4. Thanks, Malcolm, my confusion stems from the fact that I thought what had been the warm front was stalling over my area, with the cold front occluding thereby increasing ppn. here as compared to yesterday. It appears instead from the Met Office that the former warm front now lies in the North Sea as an occlusion, while a cold front has appeared, and the latter is heading west towards the original cold front that is arriving from the west.
  5. Not only that, they've moving towards each other!
  6. March 2018 C.E.T. forecasts and optional EWP contest

    4.8C and 77.9 mm, please.
  7. Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    That's actually potentially quite concerning.
  8. Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    I suspect this is the point from which the cold period fades. Met Office ensembles and high-resolution models obviously back the UKMO output, hence the FAX cgarts, plus GFS is consistent.
  9. Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    GFS says no - you might yet be right.
  10. SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 11/02/2018 onwards

    I wouldn't want to try that - the sea off the Norfolk coast is chilly even later in the summer - this is the coldest time of year!
  11. Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    If it was that simple anyone could predict what was going to happen. I'd have agreed with you had you advised caution until the UKMO model was in agreement, but advising that we ignore them and thereby act as though the UKMO is the only valid model is far removed from what most of the knowlegeable posters here (I'm not referring to the majority here, but those who have shown their knowledge over many years) seems strange to me.
  12. UK High - depending on cloud amounts could be chilly nights but warm-ish by day?
  13. Thanks. My comment on entropy was based on comparing ECM + EPS vs. GFS.
