Seems bright here today if a little chilly, following Surrey's updates regarding the river levels with interest since I saw something in the news about how millionaires live in that area and I felt sorry for them that even with all their money, they can't hold back nature.

I think it's part old wives tale, part urban legend and part expectation for something seasonal. It's got a few going this past couple of days and I'm chilled (but not buried you understand) knowing that opportunities will still pop up in the next few weeks and months.

 

Looks like sporadic daily rain through most of next week and temps a few degrees down on what they have been in recent weeks, but nothing bone-chilling.

I'd really welcome something cold, clear and frosty TBH - I've spent ages swapping over my Winter wardrobe into the main one and haven't really had a chance to wear all that thick woolly stuff yet!

Good Afternoon everyone,

 

Lovely afternoon up in NW1. Great view to all of London from the 27th floor. Looking forward to the weekend, hoping my local team's match is on, dependant of course as to how much rain falls overnight and tomorrow morning.

 

I had to leave the MAD thread as I was finding it all too depressing.

 

Happy belated birthday JP. I really look forward to reading your comments on this thread. I hope you do not mind but I extract below a portion of one of the messages that you posted late yesterday as follows:-

 

"still happy tonight with the runs

 

this is typical chaos mode with them at present"

 

I hope you feel a little better now. Probably all that celebtatory drinking!Posted Image Posted Image

 

 

Kind Regards

 

Dave

Personally, I think we will get some significant snow fall in the middle of January. I'm not basing that on charts or anything scientific.......just instinct. :)

well just had a lunchtime pint down the pub and the day is still bright, dry and slight chill in the breeze.

i have been sounding like the font of all knowledge in my office when it comes to polar vortexes. :rolleyes: cant for the life of me understand why no one else is interested in the weather :lol:

i too have a gut feeling that in the much worn football phrase; winter will be "a game of two halves" :D

what entertains me the most about the polar vortex and stuff is that people whom believe incorrectly it is coming here obviously hadnt figured on a 3000 mile stretch of water called the atlantic lol. In relation to the weather is lovely walking in the sunshine.... Sutton High Street wander no rain first time at lunch time for ages.

 

as MAF says game of 2 halves.... not out of the question yet

 

still been an interesting model watching couple of weeks... think we all had storm fatigue by new years day lol

Luckily I don't do that Book thing but I was just in the hairdressers (ooh, middle-class pretension, what's wrong with the barbers?) and someone came in and announced that the "polar vortex was coming next week" and it would be minus 3 with lots of snow.

 

As you can imagine this got everyone chattering away.  Except me.  Why can't we go back to the old days when I just got asked whether I had been or where I was going on holidays, whether I was on my lunchbreak, and what I was gong to be needing for doing the weekend?

Hello A S

 

How much was the haicut- £140 or £15?

 

The price is very much in the news these days.Posted Image

 

It is fascinating to her every newsstation, and peiple generally now using the term Polar Vortex as if it is secomd nature to them and fully understand the meaning of the term.

I have decided on a haircut this evening. Being a bit "lacking" on top and with the sides and back being trimmed the weather is certain to get colder now. Almost guaranteed! 

 

 

Kind Regards

I think C4's forecaster Liam Dutton does a wonderful, straight forward blog and covers current events succinctly here:

 

Winter lurks but may not pounce just yet
 
A few days ago, I wrote a blog about hints that winter proper may be about to pounce on us next week, as the UK found itself caught in the middle of a battle between cold air to the east and mild air to the west.  At that point, it looked as if the weather computer models were favouring the colder air to win, with lower temperatures and snow a possibility.
 
However, I did point out that there was still some uncertainty and that the detail could change, which it indeed has.Temperatures now look likely to return to close to average, rather than anything notably cold, which does reduce the risk of snow.
 
Why such uncertainty?
 
In situations where cold and warm air collides, weather computer models can often struggle to grasp the fine detail as to precisely where the boundary of cold and warm air will lie. This is particularly true when such changes are slow in comparison to the usual haste in which weather across the UK normally progresses. One notable change has been the orientation of low pressure to the west of the UK early next week. Initially it stretched north west to south east, which would have favoured an eventual change to cold easterly winds and high pressure.
 
However, now it looks like the orientation of low pressure will be more north to south, favouring a less cold south to south easterly wind and high pressure staying to the east of the UK.
 
Rain and flood risk continues 
 
One consequence of the subtle changes for next week is that weather fronts will now make greater progress across the UK than they would have if high pressure had become established. This means that further bands of rain will move in off the Atlantic, bringing more wet weather at a time when it really isn’t needed, given that the ground is saturated and river levels are still high. Whilst it is still a little early to be sure about which places will see more rain and exactly how much, it may be a case of having taken one step forward and two steps back.

Just tidied up and cleaned the cupboard under the stairs. The Nipper, the cats and quite possibly the neighbours are now jibbering wrecks. :O

As for Terence.........we won't go there.

Still sunny and blue sky in Ippy. What's all this about snow in MK on Monday?

John Hammond has just been on News 24, suggesting that Met Office latest thoughts are for a succession of fronts affecting the country next week, after a weekend respite. 

 

A block is being set up, but will likely be too far east to prevent this and the likely resultant flooding issues. Obviously he hoped the block might be closer to us and the thoughts would be wrong.

One of our elderly volunteers came in today (she's 86) to say she wasn't sure if she would be in next week as we are expecting snow (she saw it in the News Paper - mmm, I wonder which one that could be Posted Image )

 

I tried to explain to her that it more than likely would be 'oop North' but she was adamant that it would happen - so hopefully there will be bread and milk left on the shelves this weekend if her reaction to the news papers reporting of the upcoming 'snow' was anything to go by Posted Image

  • West best for sunshine on Sunday

    Sunshine in western and central areas to end the weekend, but still cloudier and windier further east. Monday brings a reversal in fortunes though with eastern parts seeing the best of any sunny weather. Read the full update here
