    I'll be honest the latest bbc forecasts going for a more underwhelming outcome for Tuesday, so we shall see who is right very shortly - euro 4 looks good/gfs looks good, yes the front does dissipate but hopefully not before it dumps a few cms/an inch or two on Wales please lol

    I'm back from my 24 hour ban. Safe to say I won't be posting much anymore as I can't even have my own opinion in the model thread.

    I noticed that your post was deleted almost straight away. A 24 hour ban is a bit heavy just for that!

    I know. I'll just stay out of the model thread from now on. At least we have a laugh in here.

     

    Looking at what weather station to buy - any ideas? Only a basic one.

    Tuesday's event is going to have minimal effect guys - just a few flurries at best. Don;t get any hopes up.

    Its not only the Euro4 that keeps the intensification up a little more, there is a trend within a few of the other high resolution models (HIRLAM & WRF NMM 0.05). Must stress however, that even with these 'improvements' no major accumulations are expected. Pembrokeshire may suffer from the precipitation turning to sleet and even rain on the back edge due to somewhat marginal dew points & 850pha temperature combined with light precipitation. Southern coasts may also suffer from the precipitation turning more sleety but shouldn't be too much of an issue. Overall prediction is for 0.5 - 3cm widely with more slushy accumulation along the pembrokeshire coastline.

    Its expensive, more of a high end budget product. Doubtful you will find it under £100 (Which is basic model). It is very good though, does have good number of parameters it measures. You can also view the temperatures that other models are reading across the country which is very helpful in marginal snow situations for example.

    Is this front slow moving and will it be light or heavy or in between @andymusic also what time will it arrive here and how long will it stay for .

    About 3am Tuesday a few weather warnings after that as snow showers move in ,and its back the to radar watching Tuesday night Wednesday, Following a band of rain, sleet and snow, clearing southeastwards, rain, sleet and snow showers are likely to increasingly affect western parts of the UK. Snow showers are likely to be frequent in western Scotland and northern Northern Ireland, where hail and thunder are also possible. These will gradually fade overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, with icy stretches developing as skies clear, particularly where early snow has melted and then refrozen overnight. 0.5-3, locally 5 cm of snow is likely at low levels, with some places above 200 m seeing 7-10 cm. As is usually the case with showers, not everywhere within the warning area will see them, and along immediate coastal fringes exposed to the northwest, they may fall predominantly as rain.
