  1. I suspect that the beast would be so tired by June that he may simply burn in mid air, imposing some effect at ground level as he does so
  2. Pretty stark langauage in the Met Office 10 day trend forecast... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sir0p7u7XrQ
  3. They really are incredible ensembles! Can I just say I don't post in here very often at all as I'm what is (probably) known as one of these Netweather 'lurkers' I took one look at this forum tonight after the ECM 12z tonight and thought the end is nigh...and this cold spell might be odds off, gone in the tipper and burnt by the Atlantic. But actually, you look at the fact that the ECM 12z op is a really big outlier - this really just shows how strong the signal is for the block to set up in this way. The GFS 18z is just outrageous and is (in my honest opinion) an extreme solution. It seems to me, though, all models have got this block sorted and pretty much nailed. The only question is...just exactly HOW much snow??

    Irma now up to 180mph sustained winds http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCPAT1+shtml/051445.shtml?

    Hurricane Irma

    http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/east/catl/h5-loop-rb.html I cannot tell if it's actually undergoing eyewall replacement or not? Seemed like it weakened slightly so maybe it has. The eye is so small it's tricky to see! NHC were expecting it to take place to be fair.
  6. Was not expecting this for Norwich! Couple of cms at least and building quickly!!! EDIT: REALLY big flakes now too!
  7. Can confirm sleety snow in west Norwich Shockingly!
  8. Well, I'm hoping to maybe see a flake or two in Norwich. Stranger things have happened, but the current forecast is for the heavier stuff to be further south. That is if things go to plan, though, and this appears to be an extremely unpredictable situation.
  9. Well, it is the GFS we're talking about here
  10. Just when you thought we were maybe getting slightly better with all those colder winters, our long period of mild winters bring us back to a one small snowflake = panic affair. Modern britishness at its best.
  11. Yes Ian Brown is an absolute Netweather legend in my opinion! Hoping to see something today. Keeping an open mind re snowfall...
  12. I'm a lurker in this particular thread, although I haven't been posting very often recently. However monitoring the models from a tentative distance even I can tell ALL the models have set something up as early as T120 and I am looking forward to how this pans out past this point. I think there is now very high likelihood that some sort of good northerly is on the cards (with a good chance of snow). How this reloads is another matter but just to remind you about how the past few winters went
