Have the straws that were being grasped at in the MOD thread been returned to near by Pubs and Bars?

Hardly straw clutching, probably coldest period of winter coming up from next week ???

yeah, but very little snow, Thurs looks very chilly, maybe like 26th Jan, snow grains possible

We will see, only time will tell. Not us, or a computer model.

It's going to get cold, sure, but there was been talk of 1962-63 a couple of days ago... Again.

Just as they say "life will find a way" in England we have "snow will find a way (to miss)"

Tbh, I'm not really interested in an easterly that's not worth it, i.e one with only coldish single figure temperatures or warmed out uppers and a lot of cloud.

I did see someone mention March and an SSW late Feb.. Oh great, a cold spring.
 

CFS is wrong more often than not so i'd not worry too much about another SSW. The vortex looks like recovering as we head into mid-late Feb in the upper stratosphere.

So glad I didn't get sucked into the model thread this time . When people post charts showing -18HPA air etc it raises false hopes . I was waiting until Sunday to even look what was panning out . To be looking at every run from a week back is almost always going to end in disappointment . Still time for upgrades by end of weekend but we know the likely outcome will be the opposite probably !

Totally agree, I made a promise to myself not to start believing in seeing snow until it's within 48hrs on the charts, anything past that is pure model make believe.

They have been real poor this season and particularly cruel. Yes  there's been Northern blocking, and low and behold not been in our favour, but the models have kept dangling the carrot.

Lovely day today, and the sun felt warm in the light winds, my mind can't help but keep thinking about the longer days and warmer weather.

I just don't see snow coming to my part of the world this season, so roll on Spring.

Yeah, the first chart reminds me of 26th Jan, another Thursday, icy feeling day with the odd snow grain, E'ly though could bring drizzle in from the east

trying so hard not to get sucked in to all the excitement regarding the potential cold snap towards the back end of the up-comming week, so many times it has been within reach only to be cruely taken away or watered down to a chilly cpl of days, fingers crossed that this time luck may favour the coldie camp,

certainly not a beast, high is not far enough SW, few flurries possible from Thurs to Sat, then looks like the Atlantic may get in, although not on ECM, that suggests light snow possible from 9th to at least 14th

Cold spring in 2013 led to the warmest summer since 2006.. warm spring in 2007 led to.. well, the less said the better.

Yes the general pattern indicates a average or cool spring heightens a better summer chance. 1959, 2003 the exceptions though.

Oh lord, what is it with every potential cold spell we get, there seems to be an influx of people that never post on the forum, wanting to poo poo every run with knee jerk reactions?
