North West England - Weather chat


Recommended Posts

I remember getting a maximum temperature at 1pm of -11oC in 2010, which is crazy for a coastal town. For crazy snowfall we only need to go back to January, March and April of 2013.

2010 was superb, in all honesty probably a once or twice in a lifetime event for our part of the world.

 Please just wait and be patient, these posts are so frustrating, its day 1! Today temps have been unexpectedly a tad higher (altho falling now) due to the slightly more westerly component to wind. Next couple of days will be colder, still some showers around, but real fun & games will be Monday night through to Wednesday. I'm not saying it will be an 80's style snowfest, but snow prospects will improve. Whilst I understand the negativity to a degree, you can't write off a cold spell on the first day with a good 4 or 5 days remaining - this applies to the last 5 posts tbh.

What I think they are worried about is this.

 If today can be warmer than forecast cos of a more westerly aspect to wind-why can't the same happen next week.

Only 2 days ago I was looking at charts for next week with uppers of -7 to -10 for our region, they have suddenly dissappered! Everyone in the model thread was wetting their pants with excitment re deep cold and prolonged cold spell-now they're not!

GFS ppn charts show an area of ppn moving south in the northerly wins later, hitting NW between 9pm and midnight. Nothing too substantial tho.

I've been back in UK two years, after living in Australia, I am snow starved too! Nothing substantial since 2011!

 

Currently a load of ppn heading in from Irish sea, hope the temps can drop enough before it's arrival!

Well let's keep our fingers crossed! :)

I take your point, but temps are already falling away, ppn is still moving into the NW and will turn more readily to snow. Monday to Wednesday still looks very promising, very cold with heavy ppn moving in - at this stage, nothing to suggest it wont be snow. Yes, models tantalizingly played with the idea of prolonged cold, but it soon disappeared and people got carried away... still times for things to change but I think people should just enjoy this evening (if you're lucky, some have got a few inches of snow - friends of mine in other parts of NW have seen a fair bit of snow) and rest of us should wait till next few days especially Tuesday/Wednesday :)

Yup temp is falling away now.3.8C here-well lets just hope. Personally I'll believe it when I see it :)
