Anything after this is now FI

Atlantic arrival pushed right away.

Looks like HP to the NW becomes stronger bringing even more cold air down

That would dump alot of snow on parts of cornwal and devon, shame it can't move inland another 50 miles though.

As the GFS 12z is currently rolling, I just want to give a pointer to a couple of posts from the other thread.

http://forum.netweather.tv/topic/75521-southwest-central-southern-england-regional-discussion-12th-january-2013/page__st__740#entry2489553

The above discusses the more immediate timeframe and the post shown below shows the BBC's ideas of the prospects as we head towards next weekend.

As others have stated, the reliable GFS 12z is certainly a good run so far, with regards to entrenched cold. smile.png

Inbetween now and then it could. Compared to the 06z its already moved 50miles further east.

Yep, the line is going to move a fair bit before the actual time. However, Im happy with what the GFS has outputted so far today.

I would however not expect the PPN to reach too far inland with the GFS overdoing its power somewhat.. Juts my thoughts though. I hope im wrong.

It just reminds me of the great december of 2010 (think it was that year) when snow hit every side of country and left a line from somerset to east anglia with a mere dusting even though it lasted for weeks. bristol does often get unlucky.

If only the Wunderground weather station for my town was correct. They are forecasting a -18 windchill on Saturday...Don't think so :D

1.8C here, with -2.2 DP

Back to the here and now..

That PPN front doesnt appear to be retaining any kind of strength. Pretty sure it will of died out by the time it reaches here ( according to the radar )

I thought the first band was ment to be weak and not much falling as it came down.

The above chart, coming courtesy of a netweather Extra full subscription. You won't be seeing many of these charts posted I'm afraid, as the boss won't be like it. What the chart above shows is proper style entrenched air, so we are just chasing snow thereon in after tomorrow's shenanigans. cold.gif

Well by 120 hours on the GFS and looks like a battle is happening, snow pushing in. I'm sure there will be more changes. Sorry no charts as I'm on the ipad. I'm sure someone will post them up.

edit..the rain/snow band dies at 132 hours only just reaches Hampshire. Looking good. Cold still intact and -10 air crossing SE.

I wouldn't write it off just yet, for us in the far north & east of the region, tomorrow is still of interest, just the wrong side of marginal presently, but local variences such as altitude, dew points etc could lead to some getting snow tomorrow, The Costwolds, The Downs, Salisbury plain even here in Lyneham!

True, but you're not in Bristol. Besides, I could give you a whole list of failed events from my neck of the woods. A large part of the early 1990s right through to 2008 were largely disappointing for me, but I can always go up to the local downs for my snow fix.

Game on I say.

Although subject to change considering difference fairly early on, potential wallop of snow on Friday for many regions in the West smile.png Bear in mind this is pretty much F.i but the trend is there for a front to move in. The key is in what orientation and how far. Another thing to note is the trends showing constant battleground between atlantic vs cold block to the E/NE. If this continues - the west could see a lot of snow but each time we will need luck as to how far less cold air moves in.

12Z GFS for Friday:

Compared to the 06z run where the angle of the front was a bit less favourable:

      Would this be the pinnacle of the winter, a covering of white on the 25th, or do you live in an area where you'd be glad to see snow at any point this winter. 
      It turns out it is quite a complicated business defining a White Christmas, from the observations. A look at various types of frozen precipitation, including those that look like snow but aren't and out in the cold 'sleet'. https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/news/8573-wintry-showers-and-what-counts-for-white-christmas-observations

      Whilst trying to confirm which met observations were allowed for a White Christmas, quite a list of frozen precipitation resulted. And 'sleet' gets left out in the cold

      Hi all,
      A yellow weather warning for snow has been issued for parts of Scotland for the 23rd of November. I wrote about it in more detail  but thought I would share my excitement for winter and snow
