I am looking at that bank of cloud leaving Denmark which looks as if it may travel up SW tip of Norway and get dragged into the NE flow to here. Anyone?

Looking at it again it might be part of that low expected to form off East Anglia and give them a dumping later on.

I'll get my coat! :yahoo:

I think the cloud that we are all looking at is the front you can see to the east of Iceland on the FAX run and unfortunatley it tracks down the West coast of the UK.

CMD / Pete............your thoughts??

The report said that the ice is 5.5 to 6 inches thick [yesterday] and it needs to be 7" plus to get the Grand Match on. They were expecting that thickness to be reached by the weekend. A meeting was taking place [i think at Kinross]where the decision as to timing would be made.
