Carried from the end of the last thread...........

Hi there everyone, Are you all sitting down? Reason why MetO are showing heavy snow over the SE on Friday/Saturday so early in the week is because they are confident this event WILL occur biggrin.png

At present, ppn incoming from the North Sea on a variant E to NE wind flow will penetrate slightly inland clap.gif

The very cold air mass is very dominant right now which indicates it could be around longer cold.gif

Do you have the link to the MO page that supports what you have said please?

Just tried looking at Friday on the MO page for London and there is no real warning.

The yellow area is over on the west of the UK only...

The West will turn to rain and therefore driving conditions will trigger an early warning for them so wouldn't worry about that, plus they will get winds and blizzards first, then rain will make wet roads and ice.

I said dont worry if we take a while to get snow on Friday, the later the better, after midnight etc

Does this forum include Essex?

Not strictly speaking it's this one....

...but your welcome to use any of the regional threads, I usually see where the weather is coming from and visit that thread to see what's happening there!

Oh right but would the MO warnings for the west of the country reflect more confidence for the Snow for them rather than the east or have they just not updated the pages?

I think what a lot of people in here have got to realise it and Darren (Kold) touched upon it earlier this evening, these are NOT your normal synoptics, unless you were born Pre 1982 you probably will not remember these types of cold spells, yes in those days the blocks were so huge the Atlantic took 3 maybe even 4 attempts to get through but when it did end it was an almighty snowstorm, so what if the block holds firm this weekend, who cares and what would be the pay off, pretty decent if you ask me.

If that low undercuts, and then heads off east through France it will drag in an Easterly or East North Easterly, so there is your pay off.

Please have a look at the archived charts from winter 1979, 1982 and others throughout the 1980's and you will see how these Synoptic Set Ups played out!

SE of the red line, you're in the best zone

Areas between the red and brown line, chance the showers will move into this area

I could be wrong but I guess confidence is greater for the West to see snow at present because fo the nature of the set up, but also they will get the snow earlier than us remember, West to East etc.. so maybe our warning will be issued tomorrow morning. I wouldnt worry about the warnings yet.

Small details but I reckon the wind NW'ly in places is enough to move any snow chance away from me here and push over to the East as predicted by Meto imo. even though the expected E'ly kicks in soon

      So this is it, the end of winter. Time to look forward to Spring.....
      Wait, what's this?
            
      Apparently not.
      So for the time being, we will remain as one for this cold spell. Plenty of potential for substantial snowfall, initially from the east and maybe later from fronts from the south. Possibly 10-20cm up to early Thursday, no point talking about depths for the front later on Thursday but if it does arrive like the UKMO there there could be real carnage.
      Anyway, best of luck for everyone in the region. Just a request please, be civil as per the usual notions of showers some will get a lot more than others over the coming days. There is no point in arguing or point scoring here. Just sit back and watch the snow pile in of the north sea in a fashion we haven't seen in years.

      During the 28th the weather was rather humid, but there were no signs in our part of the approaching chaos that was to hit the hythe/kent area that night, even though the forecasts warned of possible storms. By late evening about 10pm, I could hear rumbles and decided to look outside to see if it was a Thunderstorm or just some old person putting the bin out. Sure enough from then on, it turned from the odd flash, to strikes and flashes every few mins. One of the most amazing storms I have ever seen in my life. What was really gutting though, was I didn't have a fully charged camera and missed out on many strikes that not only knocked our power out, but set car alarms off!
