Victims of the 2017 Snow Blizzard Speak Out Some harrowing tales are emerging across the country this morning as the victims of the 2017 snow storm share their stories.  The whole of Norther

Just saw total accumulation maps (for next 48hrs) from latest euro4 model. Think I peed myself a little!

Guys - good luck with the snow potential over the next few days  cameras at the ready!

The stratospheric PV looks like shifting across the pole to N Scandanavia, the tropospheric PV looks like following suit over the next couple of weeks.

I reckon we will see a stonking Northerly with snow before the month is out, and with the PV in tatters a very special December cannot be ruled out.

I see the first snow warnings of this winter issued by MetO for northern england and scotland.  Interesting period coming up as mountain shadow says but in the mean time bring on more frosty days like this morning, car was frozen solid.

If you fancy being awake around 4-6am you may see a few flakes, other than that say bye bye to any chances for the next few weeks.

I'll be awake in work unfortunately lol but I doubt I'll see anything this low down.

A time of yr we can be prone to getting cold snaps is sometime during the last ten days of nov,has happened many times before if my memory serves me right. Even some guy years ago did research or something on dates during times of the year most likely for below average temps and above average temps  and indeed the last third of nov was one of the times that can often get below average temps. looks like a very decent chance of that occuring this yr.

If i was a betting man i would go for a cold snap near the end of the month and an actual proper cold spell about a month later.

Stonking 6z with extensive Northerly blocking and a dead Atlantic, given the continued forecast of a weak Polar Vortex from the middle of this month and beyond is looking amazing Winter wise.

Get you heating oil filled up and your pipes lagged.

A bloody raw day for doing anything outside,  liking the posts lads, lot's of reasons to be more positive this year!!

Given last Winters horrendous weather (gales and endless rain) it wouldn't be hard.

I have been model watching for nigh on 16/17 years and I cannot recall such a weakened Polar Vortex.

Indeed Mountain, looking good "potential" wise especially for lowlanders like me, which reminds me how do you update your profile as I am no longer up in the hills :(
