    I'm throwing this in here for thought and discussion really. Someone told me these guys use GFS for the basis of their forecast maps but whatever, I've found them to be pretty reliable short term in the last few years.

     

    I wouldn't mind betting that if a colder, more Wintry situation comes to fruition early to mid-next week, this could be a likely scenario for us:

    Next Thursday thru to Sunday looks the timeframe for any snow according to the 06z, but as always taken with a massive pinch of salt but at least shows the potential !

    Hi Robin, totally agree it is a bit far out at the moment but couldn't resist posting earlier this morning as it is the first time this winter the top 4 models have looked this promising at 144hrs. As Tamara said last night in the Mod thread it may take another bite once the PV dies down a little more, we shall see but I do like a good ramp in the morningsPosted Image

    Hi IanPosted Image

     

    Happy to have updated on the MAD thread this morning, but still with that caveat of checking further output in case the models have miscalculated the downscaling of all the westerly energy that has been fizzing around us in recent weeks. I'd like to think that an easterly, should we get one next week, is something of a big surprise bonus ahead of what I still think is a potential 'main event' as we head towards months end and most especially into FebruaryPosted Image

    Mornin each. Quite a pleasant one here in Ippy. No rain, no wind and it's bright but cloudy with patches of blue about.

    On a more somber note......I think Terence the caterpillar has snuffed it. Posted Image Either that...or he's just feeling VERY lethargic. But he's not eating his leaves. 'Sniff'

    Have a good day, all. Posted Image

    Isn't he meant to be turning into something else about now? a moth or a chrysalid or something?

    On this subject, don't we need a "don't like this" button? Terence snuffs it and there are four "likes"? Posted Image

    We had something funny, our female, Smokey started doing the tail dragging dance yesterday and cawing,so i now think she's a he which means that Benny, who is her egg mate, and they are usually one male and one female, must be female.

     

    Got that wrong, didn't I?

    A mostly bright day with sunny spells through a mixture of lower and medium level clouds. Plus for once it's not overly windy! 11C.

    Just told the wife and mother in law about possible snow next week.

    Mother in laws reaction. 'Oh no toms on snow watch again!'

    Just loaded all the babies old toys into the spare pram and am officially ready to throw them out.

    Here's a rainfall accumulation map until 6 o'clock tomorrow morning from the hi res NMM model. A reasonable amount in some areas, but hopefully not too disruptive. Posted Image

    Somebody on Facebook has just said there is light snow at the moment around south Mimms service station??

     

    Blimey, I'd be really amazed if there was! Google says it's currently:

     

    South Mimms, UK
    Wednesday 13:00
    Scattered Clouds
    11°C
    Precipitation: 0%
    Humidity: 88%
    Wind: 1 mph

     

     

    Could it be the froth blowing from a tall skinny Cappuccino with extra choccy powder topping? Posted Image

    Perhaps they were looking into a crystal ball for next week?

    I think apart from all that lovely upgrading output since yesterday and this mornings etc. This must be one of the best bits of output imagery so far nothing but utter misery and relentless force caused to most,If not all of us.

     

    Bye Bye, Just don't be into much of a rush to come back.

    Going on a no alcohol, low carb, no fun, no comfort food diet was clearly a mistake. How will I get through Model watching this week without my Gin and Pork pie?!?!?

    Very interesting Model runs for Snow Lovers for Next week. Take a look at your 10 day at a glance forecast on the Main NW page. Mine is quite exciting for this time next week...
