Isolated Frost

Far North of England Regional - Cold Spell Discussion 13/01/13--->

Recommended Posts

Time for the first major 'snow' spell of the winter, with forecasts going for snow from the west, north, east and maybe even south in the upcoming week, and with that in mind, it's time for a new thread just for the cold for those that say 'tar', 'pet', 'howay' and such colloquialisms.

Be nice, keep on topic and gawk at the lamppost. Previous thread here http://forum.netweather.tv/topic/75193-far-north-of-england-regional-discussion/

I'd say its very light now, although it was very very light to start with.

Temperature falling quickly now down to 3.1°C DP -1.6°C

Any chance of a north east snow update.

Nothing here in Middlesbrough

We are due it around 18:00

Very light snow this evening, but its not looking like giving more than a dusting. Tomorrow is marginal but we could see some pretty heavy snow if we stay on the right side of marginal. I'd go for Monday night / Tuesday as being the best bet for significant snow though when the wind veers NE'ly.

Latest GFS isn't great for here - most of the region seem to see more rain than snow tomorrow.

Any more positive spin on it?

The BBC, NAE, NMM, Met Office, ECM, UKMO disagree with it.

The light snow has stopped now. The NAE does show due points of 1C tomorrow, which suggests a frustrating day if wet snow.

Headline:

Very cold with snow and ice.

This Evening and Tonight:

Snow will extend across all areas, turning heavy for a time giving local significant falls. Snow clearing eastwards in the early hours but staying very cold with widespread icy conditions. Minimum temperature -4 °C.

Monday:

Icy with snow cover early on then further sleet and snow moving in during the morning, persisting throughout the day giving further snow accumulations for many. Staying cold. Maximum temperature 3 °C.

I don't see where any heavy snow can come from now, the front is on top of us and its barely producing any snow. There should be a spell of light snow before midnight as it clears. The heavier band was always going to be tomorrow I believe.

Graphics on the BBC site say all snow tomorrow for Durham, mostly sleet for Newcastle. This is going to be borderline.

They also however show 7 hrs of snow tonight so I wouldn't hold too much on them.

We're still 4 hours from when it was meant to intensify - seems to me like the main ppn for tonight is the heavier stuff behind the initial band, no?

1c/-1c at NCL- just need some precip.

Regarding tomorrow, definitely nowcasting, but dewpoints for Durham on the NAE keep at 0c or just under, whilst the GFS has them at 1c between 0300 and 1200. Looking at the ECM- that would be very, very marginal- and the UKMO is yet to update.

If you do get all snow tomorrow, then that is a very strong base for the convective snow shrs on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Let us know the UKMO update when it's it... I have a bad feeling about tomorrow TBH. So far Sat night's showers came to nothing, today has come to nothing... I'm spotting a pattern.

Hopefully you are right mate, although just seems to be showers behind the initial band, maybe i need to be more patient lol

      Hi all,
       
      A retired police constable turned climatologist claims snow will fall all over the UK this winter! I talk about this in more detail on my blog here but thought I would put it in general discussion as well  
      The Met Office have already spoken up and said that he doesn't use a scientific way of forecasting and that winter will be cold, it's winter. Ha.
      Anyway he goes onto say that Christmas day will be snowy for the north but no luck for the south. Apparently though the south of UK will see large amounts of snow into the new year and temperatures will drop into 5-. He says he is hardly ever wrong so who knows, we might be in for some luck here in the UK.
      I personally can only remember one year that we had amazing snow here in the south of the UK. It was great. Either way fingers crossed.

      The model threads are great places to follow the ups and downs of the model output through the winter, but if you simply want to ramp up the prospects of snow, this is your spot.

      Have a favourite winter or snow related memory, perhaps the thing which started you along the path of being a snow fan, and ultimately joining SACRA, share it here.

      Moving into November and it is time to open another thread to discuss the upcoming Winter Sports Season in the Northern Hemisphere.
      The Net Weather Ski Centre is here -> https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/travel/ski
      This contains a massive range of Skiing related content.
      Blogs - This will contain forecast blogs for this coming season, the Alps blogs will start early December to co-incide with the majority of resorts opening (hopefully). Paul will also be adding a number of blogs over the course of the season, which will also cover conditions over the the USA and Canada.
      Resort Weather Forecasts - Resort Weather forecasts based on GFS, updated 4 times a day, together with current conditions. Wengen Forecast and Conditions
      Destination Guides - We have a number of destination guides, and we are aiming to extend this over the coming season, so if you would like to contribute or would like your resort featured, please let us know.
      Scotland Section - There is also a section dedicated to the conditions over Scotland. https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/travel/scotland-ski
      This thread will now run throughout the 2017/18 season, so please give your thoughts for the season ahead, and new features you would like to see. A few thoughts :-
      Will the winter season start on time this year or will we have to wait until post Christmas for proper low level snow.
      Will the USA/Canada continue to have the best of the conditions.
      Will the East West Alps split be an issue again this year.
      How important are snow cannons to the ongoing viability of ski season.
      Any winter topic of your choosing.
      Over the course of the season keep bringing those Alpine related stories, whether from local papers or your skiing trips, which made this thread such a joy last year.
