Anyone want to hazard at a guess as to how this is all gonna bugger up?

There always seems to be a way the weather wriggles out of cold and snow this winter. 

Azoroslug FTW!

A short lived NWly and nothing more than a few coastal wintry showers South of Scotland is a worry, you know the good old wishbone effect for 24 hours and its all over. Hopefully it will be a lot better than that.;)

I'll tell you exactly what will happen. The dew point and temps will be fine for snow. But the snow bands will part like the Red sea as they get near, before re merging after passing our region lol

Best news tonight is that ECM was not an outlier, some ensemble members in fact are looking even colder past day 10. Surely we must be due an easterly after all this time waiting...:rofl:

Let's hope we are so overdue a good dumping for everybody in the UK.

I don't think you have got the point - Scandinavia & eastern Europe are much better prepared for cold. Your article is selective as well. "Many of the deaths were homeless" Of course they will bloody suffer. Most of us though spend far less time outdoors so -20C should be no problem at all if you are healthy & wrapped up.

 

Yeah, and those homeless people probably wouldn't have died if it wasn't so cold. This is why a lot of homeless people in the US end up in places like Los Angeles or Miami, because it doesn't get cold in either place.

Cold is just a major nuisance for the most part and causes more problems than it solves. Why on earth would anyone want -20C? What can you do in those temps that you couldn't do in -2C?

I was wondering if it was going to be Spring before anything interesting was going to happen and I'd get involved in a discussion on here again. But looks like we've got a little mini episode of winter possibly on the cards?

So am I right in thinking we could get a short but potentially lively little cold snap at the end of the week?

The BBC have just included the cold snap in their Weather forecast for next week so it's looking good.

-20C freezes the waterways a lot faster for ice skating than -2 does but-20 really is very very very cold, even without much wind as we got here in February 2012

Agree minus 20c is a major problem that would effect the countries infrastructure,we are not equipped either materially or psychologically to cope with that kind of temperature,nether is our wildlife. It's a bit like in the summer months when folk wish for 35c temps,why on earth would you want that when 25c is just about perfect?

You guys do realise you're on a weather forum, right? Is it then really that surprusing that some of us enjoy weather towards the extreme end of the scale?

That doesn't make us enjoy people dying anymore than car enthusiasts or window salesmen enjoy dogs dying in hot cars.

Do we have to have this conversation every sodding winter?

Not sure I agree. Ok we have double glazing not triple, but good central heating and fires in most houses, -20 will be easier to keep warm than 3c and cold rain, because it's dry cold rather than wet cold.  Then I suppose the fact we don't have winter tyres may be a problem, depends if you drive a 4x4 I suppose and how much snow is about but if it's dry air then again it may not be a massive problem. And yes ok elderly will struggle but that's the same in any country, unfortunately it gets the weak, but that's nature unfortunately. Wild life are creatures of instinct and all wild life struggles know matter what country your in, but in the main they cope well, and ones that don't either hibernate or migrate south!

Nothing wrong with that at all - but when people on here are being hysterical lambasting the UK's climate because it doesn't get very cold, I just want them to keep in mind that most people in Eastern Europe might be thinking the same thing about their climate, but lambasting theirs because of how cold it is.

According to recent report from the ONS the number of "excess deaths" last winter almost halved as it was so mild. The is no doubt that cold weather has a negative impact on the longevity of many frail and elderly such as myself.

Nobody said it didn't. My point, is you can enjoy cold weather without enjoying other peoples suffering.

Wasn't good for those who were flooded last winter though.

Absolutely no idea what your talking about,it's my opinion i'm voicing thats all! Of course its a weather  forum,i get that,all i'm saying is extreme end of the scale weather events being hot or cold cause misery and a higher increase in death rates. I personally can't understand folk who bang on about wanting it to be the hottest or coldest but that is my opinion.

      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.....
