    That's a better ext update,...the wintry hazards and snow are back on the menu☺️

     

    Really not sure if we are interpreting the same thing here. 

    Quote

    In early March there is a signal for higher than average pressure to sit close to or over the UK, with dry and settled conditions most likely. Temperatures are predicted to be a little below average at the start of the period, slightly increasing the chances of cold spells occurring. During this time there looks to be an increased likelihood of overnight frosts and a risk of wintry hazards, such as snow and ice. Towards mid-March there are signs of a change to more unsettled and milder conditions.

    seems to me it's looking like  a normal transition from winter to spring. Nothing out of the ordinary or spectacular forecast. 

    saying that, i defy any professional forecaster to tell me what the weather will be in 3 - 4 weeks time as sometimes a 3 -5 day period is so unpredictable.

    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

    That forecast is a shot in the dark tbh. Of course there is a chance of cold in March. These forecast are as reliable as the cfs imo. Hope I'm wrong but for me it's game over and  looking forward to spring

    Yes I'll be looking forward to Spring also...sometime in June July most probably! Trust me there are signs of another cold snap,and you can see by there wording its possible,without them wanting to over commit at this early stage!Dont get putting your skis away just yet mate 👍

    this all leads on to another discussion - where does FI start? yes, trends are good, yes, modelling is scientific, yes, agencies are there for a reason and i do believe they do their best. so, it leaves me with the well worn out phrase of 'let's wait and see' 😄

    Yes Si,I genuinely think we have a window of opportunity from months end through till 2nd week of March!! Plenty of cold air on tap and a response to the final early Feb warming event..could be a quite a significant cold snap too!!

    @Don where are you mate...have you got your rollercoasters back on the tracks yet!! I've been in a que for several days now mate...not good enough..next year I'm off to Disney Land...🤣

    Monday 22 Feb - Wednesday 3 Mar

    Following a brief drier interlude, aside from some showers in the far northwest, a resumption of mild and often unsettled weather arriving on a strong southwesterly wind is expected. Northwestern areas, especially higher ground, will see the wettest conditions, often accompanied by strong winds and coastal gales. Drier conditions are likely further east and southeast, although still some rain at times. By the end of February and into early March, conditions across much of the UK are most likely to turn more settled as high pressure becomes dominant, although confidence in this is low; indeed the northwest in particular could see a continuation of spells of wind and rain. Temperatures are likely to be mild or very mild across the UK, with a trend towards average in early March.

    Wednesday 24 Feb - Friday 5 Mar

    During the last few days of February and the first week of March, many areas of the UK are likely to see more settled conditions. Dry conditions with clear or sunny periods are likely, especially in the south of the UK. Any unsettled weather with corresponding showers or rain are most likely to occur in the north and northwest of the UK. Strong winds may also affect northern and northwestern areas at times, but elsewhere winds will likely be light and, as a result, fog formation overnight may become more prevalent. Temperatures for this period will likely be average or slightly above average for the time of year, although some cold nights with frosts are still possible.

    Friday 5 Mar - Friday 19 Mar

    The UK will probably see a continuation of settled conditions during the beginning of March with predominantly dry weather likely across most areas. Later in the month a more mobile pattern may begin to develop with an increasing likelihood of Atlantic weather systems moving across the UK, bringing wetter conditions. The most unsettled conditions will likely be seen further north. Strong winds may also develop at times, particularly in the northwest, with winds likely lighter overall in the southeast. Temperatures will probably be near normal or slightly above average for the time of year.

    Well, there goes the early March cold snap.  Very poor update and probably the worst all winter from a cold perspective! 😢 Perhaps not surprising given the rather lacklustre EC46 last night.

    So in a short space of time we have gone from disruptive snow in the south to snow showers in the east to wintry hazardous with snow not as disruptive as earlier to a frost and this will be the final outcome???🤔

    They have gradually trended away from a cold outlook which is not great.

    To be fair, their thoughts were inline with many others.  At the end of the day, the weather has the final say!
