A thaw slowly taking place here. It's snowing again today but tomorrow is forecast to reach 10C and maybe 18C on Sunday.

I've had snow on the ground since 7th February so it's been a decent latter part of winter (it had been very disappointing up to that point).

I have to say that the upcoming model setup looks awful. Although i would like to see a below average CET since March 2012 (it ruined me for other March's) i have much preferred heat. No high pressure in sight though.

Just as the snow is nearly all gone the ECM throws up snowmageddon here on the 18-19th. Over 40mm of precipitation and all of it snow.

Sure to change of course but let's see if the idea sticks.

No big surprise here as this morning's GEFS anomalies follow last night's ext EPS with ridging in mid Atlantic, NW/W upper flow and March going out unsettled with temps still below average. Hopefully not total grot.

Interesting that this morning's ecm det. run has morphed into something like the EPS mean of last night. "Where will it all end sidney?" " In tears knocker" :shok:

Concern is growing for the welfare of the latest offspring of the 'beast' who was born with a congenital condition. MOD Thread Winter Syndrome (MTWS) for which there is no known cure. It's feared that it's life will be but a couple of days and vigils are being held four times daily in this fraught period.

ECM has max. temperature of -9C for my location on Sunday with windchill of -20C and heavy snow. Thanks but no thanks. I'm in spring mode already :cray:

Same here. That would actually beat the recent bitter cold spell in terms of maxima (the best we managed was -7C).

It got up to 18C today. No word of a lie, there was almost a tropical feel in the air when it started belting down in the afternoon, such was the humidity.

This is developing into a quite bonkers March. I wouldn't bet against it being 25C before the month is out.

I said the same last time to be fair and I still enjoyed the snow, lol. Maybe this month will be like March 2013? And if we got another summer like 2013 I'd be very happy!

Yes, it changes every 3 hours.

Is there any model that runs that often?

I thought the most frequent was every 6 hours.

Maybe you should take the time to look at the key variables before making such assumptions.

With snow the most important things are dew point and air temperature. If T850s are above 0C then things get more complicated but they are not.

Rule of thumb that works much of the time. If the air temperature plus dew point is around 1C or lower in will fall as snow

image.thumb.png.760dba99d95812005b6dc936e9bc1380.png Dew points are around -5C or lower for many
image.thumb.png.7613850ae154a8b64e23a408cd338a71.png Temperatures close to freezing almost everywhere on Sunday, maybe a few areas in the far south could hit 3C

So for everywhere except the far SW the air temp + dew point is below zero. Uppers matter less when we are dealing with continental airmasses.

I don't wish to cause an argument, but this 'rule of thumb' stuff is nonsense when talking about snow dynamics.

A perfect reasoning for this was the last cold spell. I had temperatures of below -2C, dewpoints below -3C and wetbulb temperatures of -2C and snow rapidly became freezing rain.

      A busy spell coming up, as the beast from the east arrives.
      As the focus of the model thread is often a bit further ahead, for those wanting to talk more exclusively about the shorter term outputs, we do have a short-range thread up and running. (You're still welcome to discuss the shorter term in here too though).
      This thread is all about discussing the models - but we have loads of other options for other topics:
      As always, please keep it to the models in here, and head over to the banter thread for any moans, ramps and general chat.
      For threads related to the cold spell, met office forecasts, the winter overall and much more on top, please take a look at the general weather forum:
      https://www.netweather.tv/forum/forum/1-winter-and-general-weather-discussion/
      And finally, if you're wanting to chat about your local weather, the risk of snow in your particular location etc, then the regional threads are for you:

      Ooh yes, it's busy and with good reason - it's a rare beast to see the sort of charts we're seeing right now. It would appear the UK and much of Europe is headed into the freezer, but how cold, and for how long?
      As always, please keep to just discussing the model output in this thread.
      We have a thread open to discuss the cold spell - so if you're wanting to chat more generally about it, or talk about forecasts from the BBC, Met Office, Netweather etc, please head over there:
      https://www.netweather.tv/forum/topic/89358-ssw-related-cold-spell-will-it-wont-it/
      It's also worth keeping an eye on is the blogs from our team including @Jo Farrow & @Nick Finnis, there's some great info about the SSW, the cold spell etc, and new articles will be posted regularly:

      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.....
