Looks like game over for foreseeable future. Before we know it winter will be over. A shame as it looked so positive a few days ago. 

That would be around a week though, new chances for next weekend

What's the doom and gloom about?  There could be a frost or two in the next week or so - something to look forward to...

 

Will at least see a bit of ice from the waterlogged fields freezing over maybe...

Ah who am I kidding? Since mid December it's been pretty lousy fare here..cold rain don't cut it.

Can't say I am overly surprised at the turn of events...

Disappointed? Not really...just a sense of resigned acceptance.

When will people start learning to stop getting so overexcited at day 10 jam tomorrow charts?

Treat Jam Tomorrow charts with scepticism and cynicism and you won't go wrong.

2012-13 was only 5 years ago and 2014-15 wasn't that bad, it was better than a lot of the winters of 1990s-2000s.

I be interested to know if parts of the Midlands had bigger snowfalls during this winter thus far than during winter 2009-10.  

I can tell you for a fact that the snow that fell here on 10th Dec 17 was deeper than any fall we had at any point during Winter 2009/10.

That's nice...

Meanwhile, it's been nearly FIVE years for large swatches of the country including me.  FIVE years - incredible stuff!

Anyone else think this is a great version of how the mood has gone on the Model thread over the last day........ECM being the one falling off the perch!!!!

Go to the Alps, plenty of snow there this year, unlike recent years.  Although admittedly it's not such a long drive for me as it is for you guys

But who knows what February will bring, or even this month for that matter (it's only the 5th today with any forecast after the 10th not to be interpreted as gospel I'd have thought) so there's still hope yet I'd imagine. Though I share everyone's frustrations this morning now the outlook has downgraded. Don't worry though even if the real world weather in these lands can't be relied on to bring regular snow the models can be, and I predict it probably won't be too long before one of the big guns starts showing snowmageddon some time soon to at least give us hope again :D.

I don't contribute to the MOD thread but it's always good value for money!

Reading the Met Office update this morning, regardless of the output it still sounds reasonably encouraging? Quote directly for 9th to 18th Jan 

"We are most likely to see Atlantic weather systems trying to push in from the west during this period, which will try to erode the cold 'blocked' conditions which have become established across the UK over recent days. Otherwise, there is likely to be plenty of dry weather with some sunshine for most, especially in the east. Frontal systems making limited progress into the west of the UK during the period may bring outbreaks of rain, which may also bring the threat of some snow in places, although there remains a lot of uncertainty. Under clearer skies by night, severe frosts and freezing fog is likely. Temperatures will remain below the average, with perhaps some recovery to near normal temperatures in the west at times."

It could be a lot worse anyway - fingers crossed not too many more buckets of rain for the South West thanks!

weve had one attempt of a proper cold spell before crimbo, we have another now, if this pattern continues there will be at least one more opportunity by the end of the month, which is the time most likely to deliver a cold spell.

one thing looks obvious, theres no prolonged mild on offer.

A few people are going to end up with egg on their face in the MOD thread soon. Who? That's yet to be seen. I wonder if those that do end up being wrong will hold their hands up!

Although of course not solving the upcoming detail of the Atlantic/block scenario the overall 500mb  pattern is worth a look via last night's NOAA and this morning's GEFS and EPS anomalies as they are pretty consistent.

Upstream  we have the Canadian vortex, Aleutian low and high cell eastern Arctic with a weakening amplitude across North America and a strong westerly upper flow across the Atlantic. The key players in our neck of the woods are the negatively tilted trough associated with the Canadian vortex into the NW Atlantic and the vicinity of UK, the European high pressure ridging north and the deep trough eastern Russia associated with the second vortex lobe. Essentially how these align, and with what intensity, will dictate the speed of ingress of eastward bound systems further east across the UK. As we are all aware this what the det. runs are currently battling to resolve. Currently it looks as if the pattern will slowly nudge east with the amplitude of the ridge diminishing thus slowly allowing the Atlantic to get the upper hand. But still quite delicately poised.

More baby steps than a Nursery in the other thread. Meanwhile, former fan favourite GEM is taking size 12 hobnail boots to the block.

Really surprised at how the usual (last 3-4 years)  Atlantic mild SW pattern seems unable to get a grip this winter.

Could it be the Azores High position/influence is not so evident this winter?

Definitely different, perhaps something notable might develop after all?

not yet, but high pressure drifting across our north eastwards is certainly a potential for cold. its just not going to settle right, but its close

Not logged on for a few days- what time is the snow due tomorrow? Can’t wait. Presumably there’s not another failed easterly etc this time like all the Graham’s number of times before? :D

Probably not something most people have noticed with all the focus on snow but as the models stand there's a very real chance that large parts of the UK will see no precipitation for a good week.

      The much talked about SSW has taken place, but as Nick blogged about a few days ago, it doesn't always mean cold for the UK. The signs are good though (if you like cold that is), and the model output is showing a lot of northern blocking currently. It's set to be a really interesting time to follow the models if nothing else, so please carry on the discussion here. 
      As ever, please keep it to model discussion only in this thread.....

      Lots happening weather wise at the moment, and lots of uncertainty as to what may happen next. 
      One thing that is also uncertain sometimes, is what is model discussion, and what isn't. So we've made a handy guide to the model threads, and what posts should go where. Please take a look at it here, and try to use the most relevant thread for your post:

      A fresh thread, and a fresh start I hope. 
      A worrying trend has appeared in recent days, and that's certain individuals becoming quite abusive and virtually harassing people they see as having made an incorrect assessment of the models / teleconnections at some point. We've even had a couple of incidents where people are being sent abusive pm's. This obviously isn't on, the posts on here aren't a service which can be complained about in terms of their accuracy, and no-one making a post on here should ever have to put up with abuse because of it. It's an open forum and everyone is welcome to give their opinion, as much as everyone is welcome to read those opinions and make of them what they will. 
      At the same time though, a discussion around an opinion or even disagreement is fine, as long as it's respectful and reasonable - on both sides. Those voicing their opinion have to understand sometimes someone may disagree or challenge a view, and not take that personally.
      As ever, please hit the report button if you spot a post which you believe may be an issue. The team will deal with issues as quickly as they can, and when it comes to the abusive posts/pm's etc, we have already taken strong action against those posting them and will continue to do so should any other incidents occur.
