Coast

Southern England Regional Discussion Thread - Part 2

Recommended Posts

I don't go on the model discussion thread as not that knowledgeable and it scares me, but someone on the Midlands etc thread has posted they are warning we are going to head into an ice age..anyone who goes on the model thread care to comment?

He was joking :lol:

Despite all the wailing and gnashing of teeth in the model thread, on a local level I’m fairly pleased. Don’t think we will have any issues with getting the car out of the drive but I’m anticipating at least some freezing conditions which will justify the huge amount I’ve spent on logs for the fire!

I'd like to retract my earlier statement as I will be 200 sodding miles away from my log fire, seriously I've been hanging round the bloomin' office since Christmas like a fart in a lift and as soon as a cold snap threatens I get sent on a business trip!

*skulks off to find the East of England thread*

So why do the upper parts of the South and Midlands get a nice hit tomorrow, then it sinks down straight over The Channel, conveniently missing East Sussex and specifically Eastbourne, only to re-emerge on the French coast!!!!? :rofl:

I'm thinking (hoping) that the band of precipitation will pass over us Coast, it's just at those output timings that it's either side of us. I think it's a fairly rapid transition.

I'm going to have to get ready with the sledge for a half hour play in it before it disappears then!

Starting to get the later runs filtering through and it's pushing towards us a little more. This must be like waiting for your baby to arrive!!!! :lol:

I've taken a breath now (at last I hear from the crowd! :rolleyes: ).

Of course yet again this is only one run, one model type and the snow charts are only guestimates. The reality is anybody covered geographically in this thread could still see something white and cold in the next few days and indeed, just because we say on a calender that Winter is over, I remember some very nice snowfalls way back in April 2008:

Just to let you know the heavy shower drifting eastwards produced a covering of snow in SWALES.

While everyone gets their knickers in a twist in the model output thread about easterlys and snow and looking days away, I just went outside and found to my surprise it is snowing heavy and a slight covering on some surfaces. Forget days away and look outside peeps :clapping:

A chance of snow showers over the region from 7 pm until 9pm tonight according to the invent. Next chance is tommorow evening according to the NAE. A mainly dry sat and sun but a chance of more wet snow sun night into Monday as the Atlantic bumps into the cold air / uppers over the region. Why people ate fretting over FI when snow is on our doorstep is beyond me!

Oooh, not this part of the region yet! Raining here! Still, interesting times ahead, from an IMBY point of view, another 60mile shift westwardsfrom the UKMO for Monday and I might be seeing my first snow of the season!
