  1. Another dreamy easterly? No thanks id rather punch myself in the balls, one northerly 3 day toppler mid month with snow in the usual wishbone places with a more noteworthy cold spell in March, not anything like last year's beast but it can can snow heavily on low ground In march no probs, Think this year has been the biggest let down of all, mainly because of the fact we obsess over background signals and everything seemed to point to a good one, but unfortunately the weather has so many different factors involved(many scientists have not yet discovered) it's impossible to get it right alot of the time, Think it's better left like that rather than creating another debate, as always lessons learnt and professionals and amateurs alike look back at what went wrong so to speak, as long we all learn from the experience then something good has come out of it, Id rather 10inches of snow outside but it's just not our year this year, maybe 1 or 2 days of decent snow cover left in it yet but growing increasingly confident it's a live and learn type of winter!
  2. Guys Basingstoke (spelt wrong!) Has been hit hard have you got recent pics of the area as it just be bad by now!?
  3. Just got to work in stow to heavy snow 3inches deep but at mine back home 1cm painfully 5 miles outside the band all night!!! Think I'm gonna stay at work today lol or the local pub!!
  4. So so painfull iv moved to a village just north of evashum it's been 5 miles from me all night this is so painfull
  5. Ok, I have to reply to this because it's misleading the entire thread, iv studied radars and the weather all my life, the low pressure that formed along the south side of the main low is pushing east, so whilst at the min it looks like it's fizzling on the western edge it's tempory, the front is beginning to pivot and will push northwest, with lots of moisture been dragged into the front ahead of it I expect it to pep up in the evening, Never take radar as gospel, it's a developing situation, don't give up hope
  6. Just a hunch, but I'm strongly inclined to suggest possible height rises immediately to our north inside t144 in the next 24 hrs, been studying something and I honestly don't see how it's not been picked upon my models at the min, I stand to be told different, The vortex positioning along with low pressure through the heart of uk to our south through Europe is crying out pressure rises having a big influence on our weather, keeping it cold next week
  7. I agree with you, I guess iv just been worn down by the continued day 10 chases, it's been a really tiresome winter for me tbh iv really struggled with how wrong it's gone so far, perhaps it's because I allowed myself to get reeled in early doors and done quite a lot of personal research into this winter and really thought we would have a good one, along with the complete inability from the more knowledgeable ones to hold hands up and just agree with the facts of how wrong things have gone rather than be in complete denial and slag off the ones that's calling it the way we/I see it, Just getting sick of it all, but time to draw under it all I think so I will have a think of what road to take; either let it go and start a fresh slate or give it rest for a while, I have been very negaitve I agree, but I have my reasons!
  8. What a silly post, 5c and cold rain on low ground doesn't quite spell a cold spell in January does it? Oh I have 0.3cm on the floor that's melting before sun rise. Great cold spell
  9. Iv got a barber shop in stow! How funny. You stil live nearby ?
  10. Abotts Salford, the back of Salford hall, how about you?
  11. No mate i live just north of evashum now very low ground gutted big time!
  12. That is hilarious good night on the mountains then tell me the post code I'm on my way
  13. Mark and Mr Morgan (first name sir!?) Redditch and alvechurch does a lot better than where I am now (5 miles north of evashum)but last year everywhere did well so if we get a deep cold spell it will stil affect, but won't be hear for ever, trying to find a hill to move to lol
  14. Oh coming mate pipe down you know what I'm on about lol
  15. Matt it's 8pm, the air is cold enough for snow to lower levels. The Irish sea is alive, give it time
  16. I agree mark, people have selected memories, we've all been waiting avidly for this cold spell right from the start of winter, we had a short cold spell first half Dec then it was projected Xmas time, before moving further and further? False day 10 charts rarely moving forward, nobody's fault though it's just the weather, but yes this winter certainly hasn't gone to plan!
  17. Hi sir this is who you speak of!!!!! Good to hear you mate how's things? Where you working these days? Enjoy the snow tomoz think you will have some i stand no chance living near evashum very low ground I'm gutted lol
  18. No I haven't got another chase in me, the mods can't get it right at t96 so why an earth would they nail it from 240hrs? The downwell has flopped at the end of the day we all know it can happen but just have a feeling it's one of the years, As for next week it's not really a cold spell let's be honest, having to go high on a hill in January to find snow doesn't tick my box and definitely doesn't class as a cold spell!
  19. The thing is the wedges have only really rang true this week into tue next week but apart from that they've generally not helped, and the time period they were meant to have biggest effect hasn't actually got hear yet, so more of a prediction more than a reality, one which has changed now so nothing is a given and the high pressure to our NW in 10 days could well be scuppered by remnants of the vortex left over there so think for me I'm refraining from forecasting anything because they very rarely go the way you think
  20. If this ends up been correct then it also shows the trop on this occasion is king over the strat, don't shoot the messenger gang but as I said if it can go wrong then it will, May go the entire winter snowless now there's a thought!!!
  21. Maybe but it's just another garden path scenerio and it got everybody walking the path again only at t96 to start changing once most thought we were home and dry but I'm so glad Iv learnt from the past years of this happening but stil get emotionally caught up in the hype that's what weather lovers do unfortunately but if it will go wrong for anyone then it will for the brits in afraid
  22. To be completely honest I think we are gonna miss the boat for next week, you can see even on the other models although they bring the cold air over us the notion is for the Atlantic high to drift over the UK, the ecm is at the very extreme end of that pattern but the other 2 mods stil in some way have the same idea to a lesser degree, I think a middle ground solution hear with uk missing out on v cold uppers next week but very cold surface conditions but no snow showers from the east.
  23. Just turned up for footie in Redditch and confirm it's turning to snow lots of flakes coming down in the rain. Could be a few surprises
  24. Yes but if this has picked this up then the others will follow suit later, it's not like this happened to us before, id seriously recommend people to hold back for a bit because the infamous ecm 2012 sold us down the river at t96,
