    The current pattern, where we now have the building blocks in a position so that we can safely say we are on the cusp of triggering a number of slider lows that threaten white outs in much of the UK and a state of emergency being declared, reminds me very much of December 1905 when Edwardian ladies skated on the Thames and squirrels roasted their nuts in regents Park.

    I'm not sure even this captures just how epic these charts are though Knocker.  They remind me more of when I was a young lad hunting mammoths in the last days of the Pleistocene era.

    Very disappointed with the bbc week ahead forecast with Ben rich.

    turning colder end of week ,but still showing temps of 5-6c most places Friday,then turning less cold for the weekend.

    Not low enough for any decent snowfall after all :wallbash:

    So much for another dec 1981.then.That was amazing we even had fierce blizzards here that month .

    Aye - it's very annoying when they do that...Why on earth does one forecast say one thing while another forecast (often issued within minutes of one another) says something completely different? Either there is a threat of disruptive snow or there isn't. You can't have it both ways!:angry:

    The BBC forecast are getting worse. 

    They've basically said there is no chance of any snow, anywhere away from coasts. This is highly misleading, and could even endanger some folk who might make trip which they could postpone if they had warning of bad weather.

    And the temperatures are laughable!! 7'c and snow?? The BBC has really taken a nose dive since ditching the Met office

    Yet Chris Fawkes is talking about disruptive snow!

    Is this a forecast based on the more recent 12z runs I wonder?

    They haven't ditched the Met Office yet.

    ...but it would be understandable if the MetO have lost motivation to provide the BBC with anything more than the minimum required by their contract at this point.

    As for that forecast which I haven't seen: while northerlies can be largely underwhelming for many of us, this forecast was nonetheless probably strictly not beyond Friday.  But yes, they seem wide of the mark here.

    Still no excitement to be had in the output, a colder couple of days (still 5-6 days away!) followed by a milder couple of days then chillier, but still not really cold, with a few wintry showers in the usual places up north

     

    Just you average winter weather

    Countryfile forecast today wasn't especially exciting, unless you live in parts of the North or near a north facing coast. Temperatures may fall a little lower than they did in the 'cold' spell just gone. Still, it's 5-6 days away though and much more seasonal than recent Decembers.

    Apparently it has been decided by the general council that in future any trough/depression approaching the UK from the north west will henceforth be called a trigger shortwave slider.
