With state of the art technology and the latest info available at the flick of a switch I fail to see why the public should have to put up with out of date forecasts. In this fast moving situation its

A friend of mine Linked me to a Devon online article quoting a guy say the cold spell will last until May. A guy called Robert W Felix. Looks like he could give Piers Corbyn a run for his money. Runs a website called iceagenow. Talk about cold rampers haha!

Beeb just now intimates that deepest cold will possibly push south to France?  

 

 

 

 

It's a possibility and nothing more. That scenario has existed ever since this easterly was first modelled.

But they have made a quite marked statement and given euphoria on mad thread, what is likelihood as an outcome?

I think it this stage we are more likely to see the cold pool over the UK rather than south of it. The GFS 6z and most recent GEM, ICON and UKMO all back this up. Previous GFS and most recent ECM had the cold pool sinking south and a less cold (but still cold) NE to Northerly set in after a shorter-lived blast from the east.

The 12z's from the GFS, UKMO and ECM will be crucial this afternoon/evening I feel.

Am I not the only one thinking that this is being under-reported by many media outlets?

I've not seen one headline about this on the main BBC website up to now. Back in 2010 the imminent snowfall was warned about in advance and it was the main news headline.

BBC and meteogroup need to spread the message across more as its going to be a tough week for the UK.

It is pretty disgusting that the BBC haven’t bothered to have a news article about one of the most severe wintry weather in years! ?

Especially as they spend most of their time pandering to snowflakes.

BBC monthly outlook

Wednesday 21 February—Sunday 25 February
Increasing cold risk, but fairly settled.

High pressure overhead across the UK will lead to mainly dry and settled conditions today, albeit with a fair amount of cloud for parts of England/Wales with a few pockets of drizzle. Chilly overnight with a slight frost in places, along with local mist/fog patches.

Tomorrow will then be breezy with occasional patchy rain across western Scotland associated with a glancing Atlantic front, with gusts to 45mph a times across western Scotland, but an otherwise largely dry day across the country. Overnight, remaining mostly dry with clear periods and it will be cold (especially further south and east). The small chance of a few light wintry flurries for NE England.

A large-scale pattern change across Europe will develop through the second half of this week as high pressure grows over Scandinavia. This should be a strong enough influence over the UK to keep Atlantic lows and associated unsettled weather to the west of the UK, thus leading to a cold but fairly dry period. Indeed, temperatures will fall a few degrees below average with an increased risk of widespread overnight frost, accompanied by daytime highs only to 4-6C in places. The risk of a few wintry showers for eastern parts as winds shift to a more E'ly direction later in the weekend.

Monday 26 February—Sunday 4 March
Bitterly cold with increased snow risk.

Late February into early March, there is now high confidence for a 'blocked' synoptic set-up due to a greater incidence of high pressure over northern Europe. The primary impact from such a development will be for a greater frequency of cold outbreaks from the east, with air masses filtering over the UK being sourced from a Siberian or Arctic origin. Wind and rainfall are also expected to be below average with a lack of energetic Atlantic lows crashing into the UK, but a fresh to occasionally strong E'ly wind blowing over the North Sea will lead to a high wind chill, leading to a bitterly cold feel at times.
Snow will be much more likely compared to recent weeks, with the primary mechanism via showers feeding in from the North Sea (these generated by cold air flowing over comparatively warm surface waters). As has been seen in such set-ups in the past, there can be locally significant accumulations as showers develop into more recognised lines, whilst short distances away there can be very little snow. Therefore, details even a week out are highly uncertain. There are also tentative signals for an organised area of snow to give more widespread accumulations for a time next week, but forecasts should be closely monitored for such a development.

Monday 5 March—Sunday 18 March
Remaining cold for a time. Still a snow threat.

It is expected to remain cold through the second week of March, perhaps with another round of very cold air from the east as high pressure migrates its position around N Europe. However, there are also indications on longer range models that high pressure will become somewhat less influential to the UK and this could open the door for increased low pressure influence from the south. Considering it is likely to remain cold, the clash of associated precipitation may lead to further impacts from snowfall on a few days.
Towards and just after mid-March, the very cold air should begin to erode as milder air masses attempt to filter across the UK more often, and this should be associated with a return of greater low pressure influence over the UK. It may also turn wetter and breezier, especially in the south, but confidence reduces quite substantially by this stage.

Next Update

Will we see any further cold weather through the second half of March?

Week ahead - February 23, 2018 Weatheronline
 
Coldest week for many years
Disruptive snowfalls

Issued: 1100hrs Friday 23rd February 2018
Duty forecaster: Garry Nicholson

 

Exceptionally low temperatures

High pressure centred over Scandinavia unleashes a frigid Siberian air mass across most of Europe next week, with bitter easterly winds sweeping into Britain. Temperatures will stay close to freezing all week, and some areas are likely to stay sub-zero for several days. There will be some exceptionally low overnight temperatures. Disruptive snowfall is possible, especially in the east & north-east, but many places may well see snow at some point next week.
