    I think that update is as cold and snowy as we can expect from the m.o. 

    They won't risk to much detail but the wording is clear enough.

    So this is what Exeter actually published UK Outlook for Sunday 20 Jan 2019 to Tuesday 29 Jan 2019: Sunday will be cold across the UK, but for many it will be dry; brightest in the southeast

    Yes I have just spent some time comparing their forecast issued on their web site at 0025 with the two latest Fax charts for Tuesday. They seemed at odds and this forecast seems to suggest what I beli

    In reply to this  My thoughts on this are that met 9 times out of 10 will go for the default outcome which is the milder weather or high pressure over the uk scenario!!its just easier for them co

    No complaints from me with that update!  Lets hope come the end of the 12z's we are not expecting that forecast to change tomorrow?

    Brief? The update is pretty clear (always accepting the "low confidence" caveat) that high pressure is set to hold sway to the north. That means extended cold - and the "brief" adjective would apply to anything mild. Bear in mind also that we are currently moving away from any trigger to SSW style action, and that makes theses longer terms Glosea inspired forecasts more reliable in my book. With HP set to sit to our north through the month I think it unlikely we will see any further strat action this season. The fun time there was in January and now we are reaping some of the benefits.

    If we get downwelling response to the vortex recovery look to the block holding on but sliding airmasses from the north west. This is alluded to in the update. And that means snow alongside potential for brief mild sectors.

    Far from the downbeat conclusion you have applied to the update I would suggest it is one of the best style met office 4 week predictors that we have seen over the years. They got the end of the 2018 BFTE wrong as the mild won through faster than expected - but that was a totally different and mind bending context. This one is more straightforward, and the modelling will be more accurate. If this update doesn't get your cold juices flowing then nothing will.

    Looking at the some of the charts i'm not convinced that we'll see a prolonged cold spell. The latter stage of the UKMO output looks like an attempt from the Atlantic to get in will be made. It could be a snowy episode with cold winning out but it could easily end up in a situation whereby the mild pushes too far north for Ireland and the South of England. The latest Met update is encouraging for all areas to see snow at some point, but that could easily change again.

    I must say, I'm surprised how confident they are in the fronts making little inroads next week.

    It's only a little beyond what I expected, mind - when it comes down to it only one out of the 'big four' is really challenging that assessment at this time and it just lost some support from its own ensembles. Imagine being GFS. Shudder.

    Just updated 

     

    An area of high pressure looks to build to the north, and it will likely feel cold or very cold, especially in brisk easterly winds. Snow showers are possible across the country during the early part of the period, but most widespread and heaviest for northeastern areas. Drier weather to follow, with widespread overnight frosts, although wintry showers can still feed in from the east coast. Any organised areas of cloud and precipitation arriving from the southwest will not progress very far into the country as a result of the high pressure. However, they can bring the potential for widespread snow across areas where they bump into cold air. Patches of ice and other disruptive wintry hazards remain a possibility for all areas.

    Yes very good update, perhaps as next  week progresses fronts could move in from the east ,south and of course some sliders ,but at  this range the Met won't commit ,perhaps in following updates ,Great weather watching coming up, cheers 👍 to you all.

    That's a very good update, best of the winter for sure, nice to see very cold in there.

    Based on that they don't expect the Atlantic get in much like the 06z showed

    Yes, I don’t see the Atlantic getting any traction with the volume of cold air expected to take hold of NW’ Europe. 
     

    Sliders galore for SW’ areas.

    Wednesday 17 Feb - Wednesday 3 Mar

    Confidence is low for this period from mid-February onwards, but conditions could turn cold and dry towards the end of the month. Less cold and milder interludes are still a possibility due to weather systems arriving from the Atlantic. These systems could bring a risk of disruptive snowfall over the boundary between mild and cold air. Disruptive wintry hazards continue to be a greater than normal threat during this period, and snowfall is a possibility for all areas, but is most likely over eastern parts of the country. Precipitation amounts are generally likely to be lower than average.

    I don't think it has changed since yesterday, but that's a good thing as it's a decent outlook!

    They have ditched the bit where they said that milder wetter weather may topple in to the far NW at times in the last couple of days. Means that the high will be more robust and perhaps further North?

    A very good update but I do note it says it will "feel" cold or very cold. Thats slightly different to actually being cold. Not saying it wont be but

    It was very well presented and  most notably the option that is not on the table is the Atlantic blasting its way right through the UK as per GFS.

    Mmm very interesting 10 day trend video thanks for that. At the most they think the lows will only get as far as central uk meaning significant snow here and mild weather gets no further.

    Interesting and well presented vid. The only thing certain is the uncertainty. Nothing fully dismissed as yet but maybe we will see more disruption to the low in the next few days.

    Against the 19th century data set perhaps.

     

    Maybe try analysing against the latest dataset like 1991-20 (with the global warming taken into consideration) ??!!

    Further outlook looks underwhelming compared the models. Heaviest of snow showers ne and wintry showers at times may spread from east.

    Confused lol.

    I would be surprised if the METO outlook does not update fairly significantly in the course of the next few days. All the models seem to be pointing at something quite significant at times. Could we possibly see a red warning at some stage?

    Tuesday 9 Feb - Thursday 18 Feb

    A cold start to the period with significant wind-chill, especially in eastern areas. Snow showers are likely across eastern Scotland, England, and perhaps eastern Northern Ireland, whilst plenty of bright sunny weather is likely further west. There is a small chance of a period of heavy snowfall across parts of southern England and Wales, most likely on Tuesday. As the period progresses, remaining cold or very cold with brisk winds. The best of any sunshine will be in the west. Snow showers and attendant wintry hazards continuing to affect eastern UK at times, especially at first, whilst the risk of organised rain and snow pushing into the south-west and across southern UK will slowly increase.

    Thursday 18 Feb - Thursday 4 Mar

    Very low confidence for the middle of the month as there is a continued chance for unsettled, milder interludes arriving from the west or southwest. This produces a risk of disruptive snowfall during transition periods. Increased confidence at the end of February and the start of March for cold and mostly dry conditions. However, there remains a greater than normal threat of disruptive winter hazards for all areas most of February, with snowfall possible for all areas, but most likely in the east.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
